  SONG OF THE DAY Fiona Apple – “Better Version of Me.” I have a friend who only listens to Fiona Apple when she’s angry. Maybe it’s counterintuitive of me, but I like listening to Fiona Apple when I’m angry to make myself feel better. And we have a lot to feel angry about (and... More »

  I can’t wait for this election to be over. I just want to vote already! Unless things go horribly awry and I am forced to look into Canadian work visas for the next four years. Gah, it’s October and I just saw Christmas decorations out in the stores. Yeesh, this year nobody’s got enough... More »

  Open Thread #51 already? Considering that means I’ve had almost a year’s worth of open threads (and I hadn’t even started them until the blog had been going a while), I’m a little taken aback and how fast time has flown.

  Just got my big fat election booklet in the mail! Have y’all registered to vote yet? You have until October 20 (at least in California) to be eligible to vote in the Nov. 4 election, but why wait? > > Register to vote! < < My credo: If you don’t vote, you officially waive... More »

  Oh man, I woke up this morning thinking it was Thursday. Totally threw myself off. On one hand, yay Friday! On the other, crap, I (fake-)lost an entire day (kinda, mentally)! I hate when I fake-lose things.   SONG OF THE DAY Jolie Holland – “Pure Imagination.” I caught the newer (Johnny Depp) version... More »

  What’s cookin’? (Not me, that’s for sure. You know what the worst part about experimenting with cooking is? You have to EAT your failures… each bite… mocking you…)   SONG OF THE DAY Jenny Owen Youngs – “Fuck Was I.” Despite the somewhat harsh title, this is actually a really lovely song. I first...

  Got plans for the holiday weekend? (That reminds me: Go buy the drinky.) I guess the approach of Labor Day means the start of school for all you young’uns? To whom I say: NEENER NEENER. I am so glad to be out of school. Even if the “real world” is sometimes stupid and intimidating.... More »

  Speak your mind!   SONG OF THE DAY Okay, I’m trying something different today with these Eric Hutchinson songs. I love this singer-songwriter, but I hadn’t posted anything up by him before because, well, he’s still a relative unknown and giving away his music for free would make me feel guilty. Therefore no download... More »

  Fair warning: Rantiness ahead, but feel free to comment on non-ranty topics below! Phew, for one who hadn’t intended to follow the Olympics to any close degree, I spent the early part of the week unintentionally watching almost everything (TV has been left on while I tune in and out, but inevitably I find...
