Back in 1974, corruption and lies were running rampant in the streets. To put an end to this corruption, one man was put in charge of the team that was given this job. That man is of no relation to me.

Mission Statement

Greetings, and welcome to my blog. I am the main person who operates this blog. Ok, I'm the only person who operates this blog. But I was trying to sound professional. Anyways, this blog's really about nothing. Just my thoughts on whatever comes to my mind. Hope it doesn't suck. Haha.

Peace and love.

Poseidon, Look At Me. Whoa, Oh.

Hello there. I hope you all enjoyed your Thanksgiving break. What's not to like about it? Food. Football. No school. Well, no school if you're going to school. Though I guess if you aren't going to school, you still have no school on Thanksgiving break, but you'd think it wouldn't be all that different. Nonetheless, I had a solid Thanksgiving break. I enjoyed the time off and it was good to get a break from school. However, I had an odd experience that I would like to share.

Yesterday, I was listening to my iPod (60 GB classic FTW!) with this cheap little battery powered speaker that hooks up to the headphone jack. After I finished listening to it.......wait, I guess I wasn't listening to it, so I went to take it off of the speaker, and what happens next?

The headphone jack of the speaker breaks off into my iPod. Son of a bitch.

However, I come up with the idea of using some staples to try and get it out. That doesn't work. So, I think "Hmm......the staples are too thin! We need something thick, yet small!" After this thought runs into my head, I think of using a sewing needle. Well, I don't just think about using one, I actually do use one. Despite my supposedly brilliant thinking (according to absolutely nobody but me), the headphone jack is still stuck inside of my iPod. At this point, I'm freaking out. Well, not really, but I get upset about the situation. Well, not upset, but whatever. Nevermind.

Later, my father (thanks Dad! *thumbs up*) eventually does get the headphone jack out of my iPod. Not sure how, but he did it. He went out in the garage, and came back inside with my iPod, which was lacking a broken headphone jack stuck inside of it. Maybe he used magic and made it levitate out of the iPod. The world may never know, I suppose.

So, this story was fairly pointless, but I'm bored, and that's what was on my mind, so here you are.

It's A Chance I'll Have To Take.

Allow me to begin by saying that I'm not the best with finding the right words to say. But you knew that. :D Haha. Anyways, I'll try to keep this as brief as humanly possible.

I still like you. Quite a bit, actually. But you probably knew that as well. I don't know. I also miss you terribly and I've been thinking about you a lot lately. I just.....I don't know. Seemingly, you're one of the few people, and probably the only girl, who I can fully be myself around and not have to worry about you being like "Oh, wow, he's weird" or whatever. However, having said that, I know you like him. And I'm completely fine with that. No problems whatsoever. No jealousy, bad blood, or whatnot. I understand totally.

I guess what I'm trying to say is this: if you want to go for it with him, then I'm totally fine with that. I know that you like him as well, and I don't want to get in the way of that. And, who knows? If something becomes of it, then that's fantastic. I'll be insanely happy for you. He'll have an absolutely amazing, caring, funny, sweet, and tremendous girl that is undeniably like any other girl out there, and I mean that in the absolute nicest possible way. I truly do care about you and I really like you alot, but above all else, I'm your friend, and I'll support you entirely, no matter what you do. Basically, it's entirely up to you. :)

I'll Take You To The Seven Seas of Rhye.

Hello world. I need to get back in the blogging phase. Because I never do. Or it seems as though I never do.

Now, to answer the all important question: where have I been? Well, obviously not on my blog. I'd go as far to say that if my blog were a trophy, it would be covered in dust and cobwebs. I've neglected it. I'm a terrible blogowner. Woe is me. Eh, whatever, I'm getting back into the blogging mode. It's like riding a bike, you don't forget. Then again, I never learned to ride a bike. Not sure why. Just issues with the balancing and all. My mom promised me a copy of Paper Mario if I learned to ride a bike when I was in elementary school, and Paper Mario is one of my favorite games ever, but that didn't convince me. So I basically gave up. That's right, kids. If something's too difficult to do, then give up. It's impossible to fail if you never try. Ok, bad advice, but I'm on a roll, and this blog is semi-decently long, so don't stop me.

Crap, now I've stopped. Oh well. This blog turned out a lot better than I thought it would. I basically just winged it. Go me. I'll be back with more at some point. It's time to get back into the mode of blogging. I owe it to you, the reader. Or maybe I don't. Whatever. I'll be back with a new blog soonish.

Don't give up on me.

New Pumpkins Album Stuff.

So, I'm excited about the new Pumpkins album, despite the weird title. The songs that are supposedly going to be released (aka the 1st 4 tracks) sounds like they're great. According to producer Kerry Brown, when the 1st song is going to be released from Teargarden by Kaleidyscope, the Pumpkins new (and free) album that'll be released one track at a time, "is in God's hands." While awaiting the 1st track, by doing a little bit of research from Kerry's Twitter page, where he frequently posts videos and pics of the Pumpkins in studio, 2 of the 1st songs to be released are going to be A Song For A Song and Widow Wake My Mind, both of which sound great live from what I've heard of them. Here are some live videos of the two songs being performed by Spirits in the Sky, a Sky Saxon tribute band:

Have a tremendous day!

Doin' Stuff With The Food.


So, I recently borrowed the 1st season of Flight of the Conchords from my friend Chris, who is borrowing it from my friend Mitch. Complicated triangle of DVD viewing, isn't it? I'm not sure if that made sense. But anyways, I watched the 1st season of FOTC, and lemme tell ya: it's tremendous. The way they mix their songs in with the hilarious ridiculous stories they have is hilarious. One of the funniest songs on Flight of the Conchords was a song, oddly enough, by a band that isn't FOTC. A band featuring comedians Todd Barry and Demetri Martin, called the Crazy Dogggz (3 g's and a z). You'd likely have to watch the episode of FOTC featuring this song to get the gist of what's going on, but basically:

Todd is a bongo player who Murray, the band's manager, invited to join Flight of the Conchords, but Bret and Jemaine (Flight of the Conchords), want Todd out after he plays ridiculous bongo solos. Eventually, the bands goes to fire Todd, but Todd convinces Jemaine to fire Bret instead. Bret starts a new band with Demetri, a keytar player. The two bands, known as Flight of the Conchords and the Original Flight of the Conchords, play a few gigs together, and then eventually, Todd and Demitri decide to form their own band, called the Crazy Dogggz. They perform the following song, Doggy Bounce. And hilarity ensues:

So, yeah, Flight of the Conchords is great. Check it out for yourself if you can. You won't regret it. Promise.

Cash Rules Everything Around Me.

Greetings. So, this is my first blog of the month. Well, actually my 3rd, I guess, but it's my first legit blog. The first was just these random lyrics I wrote and the 2nd was a video, but this blog: oh, it's not either of those. It's much different.

Allow me to start by saying the following: I HATE annotated bibliographies.

Basically, the reason I say this is because they seem incredibly unnecessary. Bibliographies themselves, they're fine. Citing your sources and all so you don't get sued randomly by ESPN.com for stealing their information, you know? It makes sense. I get that. I just don't get the "annotation" part of it. It seems fairly meaningless. I mean, for our AB (I'm abbreviating it from now on, because it takes forever to type if I don't), we have to type a paragraph (at least) talking about the author of the source we are using, AND why/if the source is helpful or not. Now, I mean, logic tells me if you're using a source for a 2000 word Argument essay in a college class, it's going to be helpful in some way, shape, or form. If not, then it's a huge ass waste of time. It just seems like more work than needs to be done, in my opinion. I'm sure there's people out there who get their jollies from annotated bibliographies. However, I am not one of those people. And if YOU are one of those people, you should be smacked upside the head. Well, maybe not that, but I digress.

Rant over.

The Meaning of Life is to Give Life Meaning.

In my journeys across cyberspace, I come across a large amount of things. This video is one of them, courtesy of The Onion:

Def Poetry Jam #3!

I propose a 51st star to put upon our flag
Because I feel the need to escape the USA
A newly renovated reservation for myself
I'll fake a smile, pretending it's ok

Please interrupt me if you've heard this story once before
One man rebelling against the world
In an attempt to justify fictional causes in his mind
Perhaps he'll even end up with the girl

This city and this town seem to always drag me down
Nobody ever shows me sympathy
Thought I'd lost the only thing that ever meant a thing to me
I'm getting by in life's classroom with a D
