full life

(no subject)

Oh, I'm in rough shape this morning/afternoon. My tooth is throbbing. I haven't had a full night of sleep in a while...

I was supposed to go out last night but the tooth was killing me, and I didn't feel like drinking and being grumpy at a party, so I stayed home, smoked waaaay too much pot, and grumped my way through the Yankee game and some pretty cool 4-tracking sessions. I haven't recorded in what feels like months; I did 2 pretty cool things yesterday. Unfortunately, my little tape recorder isn't recording anything anymore, so until I get a MIniDisc player thing happening, everything is stuck on my 4-track.

Oh yeah, now I remember why temping sucks. The last 3 weeks I've only been given 4-day assignments, which is great in terms of long weekends but SUCKS in terms of paychecks. I just finished paying two (2) bills and I'm down to just barely over $100 until Friday. Weak.

"Fellowship of the Ring" is actually quite good; my "inner snob" has been thwarted and I'm totally hooked in. NOW I can't wait for the movie.

Lots of good records coming out soon, including:

Radiohead (6/5)
Beta Band EP (6/12), Hot Shots II (7/3)
Built to Spill (6/19)
Tenacious D (7/17)
Radiohead EP (7/24)
Elvis Costello re-releases of My aim is true, All this useless beauty, Spike (8/7)
Bjork (8/28)
D-Plan (10/2)
Elvis Costello re-releases of Brutal Youth, Blood and Chocolate, This year's model (10/16)

plus new Church, DCfC, DJ Shadow, Massive Attack, Nathan Larson, Jim O'Rourke and Jeff Tweedy, Portishead, Spiritualized, Sigur Ros (Cd and DVD...?!), Spread, Stereolab, Ween (and a rerelease of God Ween Satan)... oh man.

PLUS there's all sorts of DVD goodness on the way, and I don't even want to think about the dent that's gonna put on my wallet...

By the way, "Memento" ranked #8 on the box office this week (up from #10), even though it's still in like only 240 theatres and there's pretty much no advertising besides word-of-mouth. I'm torn about that, because I want it to do really well, but I also want it to come out of theatres immediately so I can get it on DVD.

Today has been incredibly stupid thus far. There are some new updates to the Heybro Scrabble page.

fun with polls

So it seems that paid users can make polls.

That's pretty cool, right?

It's pretty cool, right.
8(88.9%)
There's nothing cool about it, buddy.
0(0.0%)
I really don't care one way or the other.
1(11.1%)

I'm not sure what this type of poll is. Have you any suggestions?

My feelings about work can be best described:

with suggestive, non-verbal descriptions
1(11.1%)
with heavy explosives
1(11.1%)
with violent profanity
4(44.4%)

I didn't realize how quickly I'd run out of interesting things to say:

No kidding!
3(33.3%)
I wasn't holding my breath!
1(11.1%)
I need to use the bathroom!
5(55.6%)


The end.

sung to the tune of "I'm So Tired":

i'm soooo bored
i've got nothing to do
i'm soooo bored
my brain has turned to goo
i wonder should i get up and start sniffing some glue.... (no no no...)

i'm soooo bored
i want to go to sleep
i'm soooo bored
i should have brought some weed
i wonder should i get up out of my desk and start to scream...

you say
get a new job but it's
stupid
they're all pretty dumb, you know i
can't quit
i'm all outta dough, you know the
rent's due
i'm gonna explode
you know i'd give you everything i've got for a little piece of mind

contribute your own verse, we'll do a singalong.
