Back To Basics

Yesterday in a fit of nostalgia I opted to download some albums that I haven't listened to in years, YEARS I TELL YOU!
If you didn't know, music is my life. Well was my life for a long long time. After I got let go from A&B Sound I was all bitter and serisouly didn't go out of my way to listen, learn or appreciate music. Lately though, the love has been rekindled.
In the last year I've done a mass overhaul and listened to some of the most amazing, odd, crazy and mind blowing stuff ever. I have become obsessed with Andrew Bird and Antony & The Johnsons, absolutly adore Griffin House, Patrick Park, and Dustin Kensrue and have found myself listening to Elliot Smith a lot. I reloaded all the Shins, Iron & Wine and Flaming Lips onto my MP3 player and have been enjoying music that is new, fun and worthwhile.
Yesterday I decided to get back to basics, back to my basics. I've been having this itching need to listen to the good stuff, the punk stuff, the stuff that wet dreams are made of. I realize what I've been doing wrong for the last three years. Not listening to enough of these bands.
The Clash
The Descendents
The Ramones
Velvet Underground
Dead Boys
New York Dolls
Talking Heads
Sex Pistols

Things I Am Sick Of Hearing About...

Well since it is monday morning let me treat you...
In no particular order, things I am sick of hearing about.

~The Swine Flu-see I told you the epidemic wasn't coming
~Jon & Kate and their eight kids. Seriously does it really affect you if they get a divorce...REALLY? Well it shouldn't.
~The chick who got the 56 stars tattooed on her face. You wanted a tattoo, you got one, stop bitching about it. Maybe you shouldn't have taken a fucking nap.
~Perez Hilton, your stupid, your face is stupid and the things you post are stupid. It's sad that you are considered a celebrity when there is nothing to celebrate when it comes to you.
~Lady GaGa...more like Lady GaGaGagMe. I don't know what it is, she just annoys the piss out of me.
~The Jonas Brothers-I don't know who they are, where they came from, or why they are so famous, but they are taking up quality breathing air and should be stopped.
~How Barrack Obama swatted at a fly-did anyone stop to think that it could have just been a reflex?
~How Megan Fox wasn't the number one hottest in Maxim this year. I think she will live people, I don't think she's crying about it anymore, so why the hell are you?
~Rhianna-she gets hit, she gets little gun tattoos, she goes back to her abusive boyfriend, she makes bad music...just shut-up already. I hate her because she has a-symmetrical hair.
~The Octo-mom-shut up already! Some not attractive lady has a ton a kids and people flip out about it. Who cares?
~All things Twilight which includes Kristin Stewart, Robert Pattinson and how you almost got hit by a cab, the books, the ending of the books and how great everyone thinks it is.
~Destination weddings. Why is everyone concerned about going somewhere to get married? I don't care what hot semi-exotic play you got married in! Unless it was Ireland!
~The Canucks-It's the off season people why the EFF are you still talking about them?

Delirious Thursdays

By the time Thursday afternoon waltzes around I am pretty much delirious with tiredness and am ready to sleep sleep sleep. Everything is funnier on Thursdays. Like threatening letters, spazzy people who hang out the side of their vehicles and the fact that Nicole's daughter says "Mommy!" every time she sees the red beast in Where The Wild Things Are.

Today I laughed so hard I cried. Thursdays are also the day where I can fly off the handle and without warning go from Jovial to enraged. Just a warning.
Today I also said, "If I had a magic wand I'd shut the bitch up."
I think this will go down as one of the best things I've ever said.
Oh and when the guy was hanging out his truck, fingering another car and yelling I said, "The only way that it would be funnier is if he fell out of his truck." And it was true.
We listened to Dr. Dre's Forget About Dre, we kicked it old school.

Happiness In Small Doses

Jamie bought Maxim this weekend and we were laying in bed perusing the top 100 Sexiest women alive. And as we drew closer to number one I started to panic because Kristen Stewart hadn't been featured yet. I thought with Twilight being so massive (amongst teenage girls I suppose) and her being in the limelight galore that she would be at least in the seventies, but she wasn't.

I got this nauseating feeling that she was going to be number one. It isn't that I hate her. I just think she needs to stop biting her lip. And I don't find her sexy. Probably because she wore a bathing suit with a pot leaves on it.

Suddenly we have perused all the scantily clad women except for number one. And I said "If Kristen Stewart is number one I will have lost all my faith in humanity." Which might have been going a bit dramatic.

But, something beautiful happened. A light from the heavens was shone down upon me when we turned the page. The number one sexiest woman was Olivia Wilde and the world seemed like an okay place to live in again.

If only they would stop Kristen Stewart from acting in movies...
