Super Fantastic Stuff That's Rumbling Around My Head Post!


1. I have decided that I do think Sarah Silverman (and her program) is funny.

2. I also decided on off-white Chuck Taylors. And I love them. That said, I am done participating in trends because of my mullet situation (aka Side Sweeping Bangs 07). I threw out my super dark nail polish. I am not downloading the the new Arcade Fire album. I broke all of my wide headbands.

3. I have not played WOW since my initial experience. I would like to, but it just takes so much damn time and I have so many super important things I gotta do - read complain about shit.

4. I checked Sitemeter for search words. Someone else looked for NPR lawyer Wyclef Jean.

School Dayz:

Today a kid asked me why my toes were so fat. I asked why his face was so ugly.

A girl came up to me and asked what happened. What happened to what? I asked. That picture your mom has of you in her office is really pretty, she says. You're going to end up pregnant by next year, I think.


Tonight my brother (18) had the audacity to ask me what the Running Man was. WHAT?! I suppose he doesn't know what the Roger Rabbit is either. Kids these days.

I cannot get enough of this guy:

I bought Multiply by Jamie Lidell. Probably the first CD I've purchased in literally years. [Incidentally, while cleaning out my closet this weekend (Yeah, that's what I did. wanna make something of it?) I found the very first CD I ever owned: Mariah Carey. And I played it. And it was as awesome as I remember.] Anyhoo, it's the shit. He's really good in so many ways. Hopefully that vague description will persuade you to check him out. It's worth it. Really, I can't say enough good shit about this guy. I also got The Garden by Zero 7, because I am a sucker. It's been out for a while, but it's good blogging music. Did I really just say that?

Song stuck in my head:

Alloveragain - Tahiti 80.

I am almost illiterate:

I have not read a real (i.e. something other than Robert B. Parker or Nora Roberts - not that there's anything wrong with that) book in about a month. My brain is atrophying at an even more alarming rate than what has become normal considering the cheapness of drinks here in the Sooner State. I picked up Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell by Susanna Clarke this evening. I like to read NYT's bestsellers years later. I'll let you know. Bee-spot book club all the way.

I don't think this is for real, but humorous nevertheless:

Agreed on the Sarah Silverman program. I was one of her loudest detractors for a long time and then, bored the other night, I actually bothered to watch her new show.

Funny. REALLY funny.

I hate being wrong about stuff, though.

In 15 years, YouTube will be taught in 4th grade history textbooks. It's having a greater impact on United States culture than liberal Republicanism.

Oh, and the funniest thing about that video is the kid playing video games in the background, paying no attention.

Read some Murakami. The last one I read was The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle. I'm reading his new short story collection, Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman. Will let you know if it's any good.

I'm going to have to give Sarah Silverman's show a try, I guess. Everything I've seen on the Comedy Central ads has been painfully unfunny to me, but maybe I need to see it in context.

Arcade Fire are suddenly trendy? Fuck. Oh well, I can't help but love Neon Bible. Though, I nearly agree with you on the dark-colored nail polish. I didn't realize it was suddenly the cool new thing until someone asked if my black polish was Chanel. Um, what?
