I remember when I first saw the Flaming Lips. They came to my college in 1989. I had to help with the set up and I was very sick. I remember them mostly as a fevered dream which seems oddly appropriate. I still have this vision of Wayne Coyne and his pink hair, bathed in a strobe light, as I felt slightly faint. Now… »
I had this album but I thought this video was the dumbest. The absolute worst video. My opinion of Scandal was not aided by the whole Kate and Allie subplot of the daughter singing "Goodbye to You" by them either. There were lots of embarrassing videos. Just ask Billy Squier. But this one annoyed me the most. What say… »
We've not been having Open Threads very much lately. I will resume my evening thread on Sunday. How are you guys? I'm off to study a bit. I'm very tired but trying to get back into the swing of things. I bought Pumpkin Spice Creamer for my coffee! HAPPY FALL! »
Have you ever taken a trip with your pet? I remember moving from Boston to the Philadelphia area with my cat. I gave her this herbal stuff (not marijuana) to calm her down. She meowed for like the first hour and then she fell asleep for hours. At the end, when she woke up, I let her out of her cat carrier and she sat… »
In fact, if it weren't for my fear of water, I'd like to share a hot tub with all of you and your cats. »
PBS Frontline has recently produced a new documentary about controversial Voter ID laws that might be worth checking out. Voter ID laws are probably the most widespread instrument of voter suppression, increasingly relevant as we head back to the polls for the midterm election (GO VOTE). And to be totally… »
It's not exactly a roadtrip but it is my big week out. I've never been to Chicago before or even the midwest. So here I am! Hi guise! Here's a song about a road trip of sorts from one of my all time favorite albums. Here's a couple other songs I especially like. »
Out of all of your friends' children, what is first name of the one you find most annoying?
What is the make and model of the car you were driving when you realized you don't actually like to share with anyone?
What is the name of the sports team whose statistics you think about whenever talk turns to…»
Today was my big day out and I met Napsauce and saw Teapot and Bayareachick and then hot tubbed with Cheerful and her husband and chatted with Cheerful's daughter about the wonders of playing the flute. I had lots of fun meeting all these cool ladies. I broke the law by parking in a dental parking lot without going to… »
5 espresso Snacktastic was replaced temporarily by Eucalyptus flavored oxygen breathing Snacktastic. I felt like a groovy koala, man. Totally. They would never have this in Philadelphia because people would be angry at its existence on principle. I also shared a kale salad with Teapot and let me tell you, that… »
The worst accent in America is fucking Pittsburgh. Fuck the haters and the fools on Gawker. And I'm saying this knowing I had an extended conversation with a teenager about being a wicked weihdo because I sound like I am from Fahgo. And I'm like "There is no silent "R" You sound like weirdo. And then we totally… »
