when you haven't posted in a long time and you know you want to, sometimes you just gotta throw something out there to get back into the groove; take the pressure off the "first post after not posting forever" post. so don't get frothy. yes, i'm posting. but: it will suck. it's the first pancake. now that i'm free to mediocre. let's begin. current obsessionsmusic: she&him Vol. 1 - this is Zooey Deschanel and M Ward. you recognize her. she was in elf. she's pixie-ish, but can also be kind of creepy in a The Shining sort of way. certainly not profound or groundbreaking material, but i can't stop singing Sweet Darling... also the cover I Should Have Known Better, worth hearing. Short, Sharp, Shocked--Michelle Shocked. early 90s i think. maybe earlier. i used to have this on cassette and would listen to it in between Upstairs at Erics and The Go-Gos and The Judys (if you have a copy of Washarama--LEAVE A COMMENT. i want to talk to you.) i got turned onto michelle shocked with her campfire tapes, but this one is better. Run to Gladewater my current anthem. look for an upcoming post about this song. it'll be deep. but funny. you'll like it. probly.Day and Age--The Killers. this is my first killers album even though i've been kind of a closet fan since that somebody-told-me-you-had-a-boyfriend-that-looked-like-a-girlfriend song. they seemed constructed in a lab to me. i didn't get a lot of authenticity from them. but by the time this album came out i decided to give them a fair shake. still strikes me in the vein of a poor david bowie wannabe ... but they are catchy little tunes. gotta love catchy. and i do. Spaceman. Are We Human. Technology: Facebook -- i don't say this lightly... i never say this, but: OMG. its like sticking your head into the genie bottle where everyone you've ever met got stuck the day you forgot about them. this kind of thing is like putting a bowl of trailmix with m&ms in front of me. i keep digging around to pick out the good stuff. but in the meantime, i've had my hands on a lot of...nuts. Twitter -- okay, not officially an obsession, but you can't say i'm not open to try new things. i get it. my own quotes, by me. it's funny. i like it. ... i guess. but i have to ask... really? regular posting isn't enough to live up to. now. twitter pressure. the concept is awesome, though and i'm not going to get kicked off the back of the wagon just cuz i'm not with the band. follow me? Wireless -- oh yeah baby. this is the maiden voyage. the awkward virgin. this is the first post from my new laptop. i am writing this ... from bed. and i am naked. nah, i'm not. but i could be. because i am in bed. with my computer. i am making sweet technological love to this little slab of computerlicious advancement. there aren't words to describe my infatuation and total adolescent-like devotion to wireless internet. but i wish my kids inspired even a fraction of this love. i'm just sayin.
MiscellanyThe Guy -- this will probably get its own post. eventually. but The Guy is still around. i know. can you believe it. and he's my favorite current obsession. obsession in a good way. not in a 'got his bunny simmering on the stovetop' kind of way.
Monty's Screenplay -- unfortunately, i'm bound to secrecy by a privacy clause that's only enforceable in states where marijuana is legal, but i can tell you it's a pretty fuckin funny little tale. naturally, neither him nor i have the vaguest clue as to how to write a proper screenplay, let alone shop it, pitch and eventually in some acid-laced dreamworld get it produced, filmed and ... good lord... distributed. but i'm having fun writing about crazy pot-shit. and i like talking to monty about something fun.
My Vacation -- i'm broke. i'm fat. i'm broke. but fuckitall, i'm going on vacation and i. can. not. wait. don't know where. don't know how. but i took a week off. (i've been here for 11 years. please, come kill me. if you loved me, you would) and i know it's going to be more than 2 days. it will not involve any family bonding time (this vacation not approved for general audiences). it will not require air tavel. (ew. planes are derty) and i will be relaxed. more on this later.
you still here? wow. you are cool. bet you have a rockin facebook, doncha.
