the art of doing things obnoxiously

i had never heard of the beer pallet tower in LA, but the description sounds amusing. perhaps this is a photo of it?

you know how i said a few months ago new YA is awful? well, just because it's awful doesn't mean it should be banned. SERIOUSLY, people. it's not flowers in the attic or anything. way to draw attention to it. try banning anne of green gables or something. it's your own fault your child isn't sheltered enough.

toot toot!

the "next few months" is an awfully vague date of service rollout. at least there are bike racks.

so if you looked up hercules and love affair on youtube, and then picked you belong, you would get a video that looks something like if you got drunk, really drunk - honestly, mostly wasted, in 1995, and then heard something dance-y in 2008, and made a video that is what you kind of remember videos looked like in 1995, and especially included the way people danced then, but you made the video with a gap-toothed friend who was kind of cute but not totally but has nice bangs, and it's in black and white so it looks good if you're drunk, but then sober you realize animated houndstooth isn't the best pattern for the background but it's too late and you really just like watching your hot-gay-man friends dance around shirtless in that arm-noodley way, and it sort of improves the song and sort of makes it suckier too, and then you're like, fuck it, i'll just try again later for another imaginary video.

except you actually did this (hypothetically speaking) and then you're like, oops.

did you know there was a "Surprise Hurricane" that hit Houston in 1943? They totally called it that too.

so lykke li youth novels sounds alternately like stereo-total fucked up on pills, or a three-way cage match between april march, feist, and cyndi lauper, all with OMD horn background interludes and phil spector timpani. or am i crazy?
just think how mean i could be if i didn't like it. the word Duffy could totally have been used. yea.


so i cracked and joined facebook, though i did do the store's first, and this could be a problem. remember when i've had crises in the past involving snooping social networks and google? well, this could turn out very, very unhealthily, for now i can snoop a lot of the people that i couldn't before. ah, class and social networking. creepy!
