I can be cruel, I don't know why.


down to your last cigarette

Sorry it's been so long since I've graced you all with my wild stories and correct opinions on music, but I've been in the business of reinstalling Linux five times in the past week or so. Due to that, and with the start of the new semester, I haven't had a lot of time on my hands. Actually, that's a lie. I've just spent most of that time at the coffee shop or watching Buffy/Angel episodes.

With the new semester upon us, I am again with a crop of new students to mold in my own graven image. It's fun being in front of 40 impressionable young minds and being able to yell at them. However, I probably shouldn't say anything too scathing, as it would be just my luck that one of them would find this blog and get me fired for being "insensitive."

As far as awesome stories go, I don't have many right now. I should note that two rather cute girls have moved next door to my posh apartment, so I should probably start hitting on them soon.

Since we have no stories, we'll have to delve (once again) into the world of music, where I will convince you that your favorite bands suck, or reaffirm your notions that my favorite bands rule.

We (meaning me and Someday Bum) went to the coffee shop today, as we usually do, to engage each other in a battle of wits. Of course, I am referring to a crossword puzzle race. You each get a copy of a crossword puzzle, and the first one to finish wins. It's fun, and it's the only way I know how to impress chicks (except by having a copy of "Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance" on the table while I smoke a cigarette and look pensive and sexy).

It's not that the puzzle was hard today, but there was a slight annoyance. "Lazer 103.3" set up shop (meaning an SUV with large speakers on top) kitty corner from where we were sitting. In case you don't know, this station is one that plays 80s hair/glam/terrible rock, but claims to be playing "awesome hits." Occasionally they will play music by a band that is worthwhile, like Led Zeppelin, but they'll play "Rock 'n' Roll," commonly known as "The Cadillac Theme Song," which is the one Zeppelin song that I can no longer stand. So, I had to put up with mostly garbage while trying to relax during my insane crossword compettion.

I've been listening to a lot of Tori Amos recently for some strange reason, and that reason is due largely to the increased levels of estrogen that my hormonal glands are releasing because I am dying for female attention. I have come to the conclusion that the best record she has released is "From the Choirgirl Hotel." Why? I am under the impression that she wrote all of those songs shortly after she miscarried, and thus they are darker and cooler than any of her other work. "i i e e e?" "Hotel?" These songs are borderline Trip-Hop, not your standard Tori with her Cornflake Girl Nine Inch Nails panties or whatever the hell that one song talks about. That's why I dig on it.

Plus, "Raspberry Swirl" is all about one of my favorite pasttimes. You can't go wrong there.

Sometimes I wish Tori would miscarry more often. Actually, no I don't. Eh, whatever. Maybe I do.

Comments:
You do, it just wouldn't be right to say it. It's ok. I do too.

I was expecting some sort of props for rekindling your love of that album through away messages. Damn it.

Also, you should have agreed to go to this weekend's baseball game. It would have been nice to see you.
 
Dude, I freely give you props. It just wasn't at the front of my mind when I wrote this entry. I was on my way to some seminar on how to be sensitive to people with learning disabilities. My mind was elsewhere.

We'll see each other again soon. I'm going to a Nine Inch Nails show in St. Paul sometime in October...it would be nice to have a place to stay. =)
 
Learning "how to be sensitive to people with learning disabilities"?! Just don't. I want to go to see Nine Inch Nails, too. Do you have enough space for another person?

Mars
 
I don't have enough space for the god of war in my car, sorry.
 
lazer 103 in milwaukee is now the Hog, which is supposed to be new and fresh (meaning we'll play whatever classic rock wklh plays), but for the broken 20 minutes that i listened to it, i heard two pearl jam songs.

two.

pearl jam.

- the greatest drummer you'll ever speak to
 
Wow, Lazer 103 went out of business, eh? That's awesome.

Pearl Jam is so shitty.
