1. According to this, I now have 132 userpic slots. Problem is, I only have 38. I think I may need to arrange some sort of userpic donation drive.

2. Goddamn you, Sigur Ros. A million years ago (really, January-February 2000) I had a really bad breakup with a girl (the one before Kath, actually) and I listened to Sigur Ros' "Svefn-G-Englar" which pretty much sounded exactly like what I felt like and I listened to it about five hundred more times before I Just. Could. Not. Take. It. Anymore. I put that album away and tried to forget about them. Didn't buy (). With the advent of iPods it was a matter of time before Sigur Ros would appear on shuffle, and eventually I was able to get into them again. Bought Takk last year, loved most of it. So last night I had my iTunes on shuffle and I was working on lyric ideas and then "Glosoli" came on, and goddammit, it's doing it to me again. The difference this time, though, I'm not breaking up with anybody and nothing terrible is happening - I'm just hearing that song in my head and I feel like my heart is breaking.

3. As mentioned previously I'm rereading Microserfs again. Holy shit, what a brilliant book. Again. Here's the reason why I bring it up - I can't help but think that "Oop!" is actually a distant cousin of the forthcoming Spore.

4. One week until Oblivion.

5. No, I have not forgotten about the LJ-only fantasy baseball league; I've just been swamped at work and haven't had time to set it up. (If one of you guys wants to do it, though, please feel free.)

Grr. I still only have 100. I'm guessing I'll have something like 132 when it's all said and done.
Well, but I've got a permanent account, so, that's why I've got the bonus. I don't have any photoshop skillz, tho.
1. I want to know who would ever fill up that many slots, then smack that person.
2. Have you seen the video for Glosoli? Fucking amazing. Also, you should give ( ) a whirl; it's a sorely underrated album.
2. The video for Glosoli makes me cry. Seriously. When they start running, and then the camera pulls back and you see what they're running towards, and the music just starts pounding away, holy fucking shit I lose it. I got goose bumps just from typing that out. I have also since acquired (), and yeah, it's pretty great. Takk's high points, though, are as incredible as anything I've ever heard. Yeah, I'm prone to excessive hyperbole, but I stand by that statement.
The next Coupland book (jPod) is coming out in late May. I understand that it's a sequel to Microserfs. Bring it on!
The Amazon description I just read doesn't say it's a sequel, but that it could be viewed as Microserfs 2.0. Sounds awesome anyway.
OK, I set it up. I figure that the details are open for debate until the draft (which is also open for debate).

The League ID# is 243719 and the Password is mugsymalone.
I have 11 out of 49 uploaded. I have had the same 10 pictures since 2001, plus a stupid cartoon one I never use. I need to change my userpics so they aren't 5 years old, not create 38 more! Gee willickers!
