I've had that crazy haze all morning, that cloud that makes me feel every insane exchange has the most to do with the fact that my senses are not operating at 100%. This halloween candy and monster energy drink is going to pull me out of the hole, I can feel it. And it feels so alive. Wait, what?
I dunno, it's the crazy haze speaking. I need a nap like no one's business.

someone at the beauty bar on saturday night was dressed as "sexy freddy".

Well, that was dumb.

In addition to Borat, I think I will count people dressed as Mark Foley, the boy molesting congressional wonder. I have so much to do this weekend, work-wise, and I don't want to do anything. I want to answer the door to trick or treaters and watch suspiria. The advertising industry does not recognize the sanctity of halloween, or the sanctity of anything really. It's not about clocking time, you have to work the hours to get "ahead", it's like medicine but much much dumber. Or smarter I guess depending on your views concerning laziness. Erin still can't find a Patsy Stone powersuit, there must be some kind of shortage in the general vegas area. My costume kind of looks like my closet went to a rave and then threw up on me.
over the turnstile and out in the traffic- theres ways of living its the way Im living, is this thing ever going to start/end.

So, here's how it works:
1. Open your library (iTunes, Winamp, Media Player, iPod, etc)
2. Put it on shuffle
3. Press play
4. For every question, type the song that's playing
5. When you go to a new question, press the next button

I kind of want my life to be like this picture:

ok, who is in charge of throwing me the northern soul dance party?
I have so much work due. I want it to be halloween already. Because that will mean most of the work is behind me. And also that it is halloween. I need to make a giant golden necklace that reads LaCroix. LaCroix, darling it's LaCroix.
Someone has set up a full blown atari system in my creative director's office. Someone was playing the olympics '82 power set and i guess they abandoned it. I am so going to jump on whatever account this was required for.
There is a new bar near the hospital called "The Post Op". I am going to frequent that and snag a drunken surgeon so as to appease my mother.
I hate this gangbanging bullshit. I hate this starting from scratch bullshit.

I just saw a commercial for a truck driving school where this dude (and yeah, it's a dude) is watching television, and by the dialogue he is watching what appears to be a commercial for a massage therapy school. Suddenly this second dude appears as though from nowhere, drop kicks the television and suddenly WOW THEY ARE AT A TRUCK DRIVING SCHOOL. Truck driving: it's the complete opposite of massage therapy. Anyways, that's what I got from that commercial.
I've been layed-up in bed with a cold all weekend, watching local commercials and television on dvd. And after buying two tires and a couch I am left with just over two hundred dollars to last until the beginning of next month. I used to be able to live on that. I don't know if I can anymore, specially with halloween shenanigans on the horizon. So should I go out? Probably not, but I'm about to take a shower and head over to Erin's for free vodka (vanilla) and god knows where that will lead.
My feet are frozen and I am watching the Seinfeld where they are all on the subway, that was just for context.

There are gay people. And then there are also some straight people. Though coming out and saying you're straight is probably the gayest thing you can do.


stephin merritt signed a cd for me from thousands of miles away because he is magic like that

this is going right next to thurston moore's signature on the world's strongest panda.

Today I'm into Stephen Merritt amazingly on Fox Five Atlanta, buying a hundred dollar tire for my car, downloading music from my new favorite website, thinking about studio fifty four and also I am into single-sentence updates.

I think I accidently drank decaf this morning. I drank from the unmarked decanter, three hours later noticed the red "regular" sticker. Don't people know you always mark the decaf. Always. So it's going to be that sort of day, is it. I mean isn't it.

I have a feeling that this new coffee service is going to taste like hospital coffee. It smells like hospital coffee.
This morning I half awoke to dreaming lucid about the death of cbgb and five hundred hot air balloons crashing over the arizona desert. Channel thirteen action news predicts! It stormed this weekend. It never storms here. It was full blown too, the lightning here is severe. I watched a lot of television on dvd. Saying "I am going to take a shower and by the time I get out you will be gone" does not work in real life. Oh how I wished that worked in real life.
Speaking of super powers, have you ever seen Stephen Merritt and Slash in the same room at the same time? No, and you won't. Because Slash is actually the action hero version of Stephen Merritt. Or the other way around. Definitely one or the other.
In an alternate universe, MSTRKRFT is known as AEAA.

Yes, this coffee definitely tastes like hospital coffee.

But I'll tell you what. If you want to use my likeness for a Hamburglar-type character, I'll sign off on that. 'Mr. Banana Grabber' or something...
I mean, I guess it would just be a guy who you know, grabs bananas and runs. Or, um, a banana that grabs things. I don't know why. Why would a banana grab another banana? I mean, those are the kind of questions I don't want to answer.

The internets are boring today.

I just ordered this couch/futon from the urban outfitters furniture department:

hooray for couch! I hate making big purchases. I mean five hundred is not much for a couch, I keep telling myself this, but I like instant gratification and waiting several weeks for delivery is not cutting it.

This morning I was having a specific craving for the iced coffee at San Francisco coffee on north highland, the coffee I used to get before work almost every morning during the Atlanta working days. I have a lot of Atlanta-specific food cravings- the fish and veggie tacos at the taq, the corn quesadillas at la fonda. White pizza from Fellini's, everything at eatzi's, etc. etc. Las Vegas, you are just not cutting it either.
I guess no LA this weekend? What the hell I-15, it's just shut down?
Why did my car insurance go up fifteen dollars a month?
Which credit card bill is not getting paid this month?
My goal in life is to have more answers than questions, this is logical right. I mean, right?

I had to force the starlight mints onto my itunes, because shuffle does nothing for them.

A cooking segment with Jane Fonda and Gloria Steinam? Oh Stephen Colbert, you are too fucking brilliant for me.

Gloria and Jane's Apple Pie:


Start women's radio network, kiss the cook, place apples in crust, ice cream three way, more cinnamon, pretend to bake at 350 degrees for thirty minutes. Serves three.

I really like the idea of a "Captain Thanksgiving".

At what point in his career did Dustin Hoffman have luxurious, over-coiffed Patrick Dempsey hair?

ps. this is not a riddle it is a legitimate question.

The first being to travel to outer space was a female part-Samoyed terrier originally named Kudryavka (Little Curly) but later renamed Laika (Barker). She weighed about 6 kg. The pressurized cabin on Sputnik 2 allowed enough room for her to lie down or stand and was padded. An air regeneration system provided oxygen; food and water were dispensed in a gelatinized form. Laika was fitted with a harness, a bag to collect waste, and electrodes to monitor vital signs. The early telemetry indicated Laika was agitated but eating her food. There was no capability of returning a payload safely to Earth at this time, so it was planned that Laika would run out of oxygen after about 10 days of orbiting the Earth. Because of the thermal problems she probably only survived a day or two. The mission provided scientists with the first data on the behavior of a living organism in the space environment.

I just watched "Manderlay", part two of Lars Von Trier's love song to the depression-era american south. I can't say that I recommend it, not the way I recommended dogville about three years ago on this very blog. It didn't have nicole kidman in it, instead opting for some chick who looked creepily like molly ringwald. Oh and another thing, there are no dust storms in alabama, I don't know why that bothered me but it did. And I felt like there was an unclear lesson being screamed in our faces.
Or maybe it was just a little too "von triersian". I like Brecht just as much as the next guy but around hour three it starts to feel like some college experimental theater project that you want to throw milkduds at. Let's not take ourselves too seriously ok.

Oh and on an entirely different note, Stephen Colbert appears to be on some sort of intellectual property theivery jag.

Me and Erin are going to be Ab Fab for halloween. Because let's face it, we're already there.

Thursday, October 05, 2006

no but seriously, what am i going to be for halloween. i don't think i can be the entire cast of lost, which is what i want.

Tuesday, October 03, 2006

oh hell yes.

who else is jamming with me right now...beck cd release days have always been the best days.

ok this is my favorite thing today, besides the awesomely easy review I just had:

it's from an old scientology handbook and maybe you guys have already seen it because its been on the internets for awhile. if not, here's another glimpse into 70's scientology know-how:

maybe i should be that guy for halloween. the one with the giant paper mache lightening bolt.

Well. The check engine and check gear box lights are both on in my car, suddenly and together. I'm getting it checked tomorrow morning, and it still drives but there's something about impending car troubles that make me anxious like nothing else. Fucking saab, I can't decide if I want to sell it or pay it off and drive it into the ground.
