i woke up with THEE worst headache EVAR. i think it even incorporated itself into my dream, it's so awful. the first time in a long time, if not ever, that i've considered calling in sick for a headache. sooooooo much i have to get accomplished for our Loss Prevention Review tomorrow. i'm surprised that they actually gave me two days off in a row right before it. granted, i AM working like a 10 hour shift or more on friday (somewhat unheard of at omx)... they need to cut 100 payroll hours by the end of the week, maybe i can sacrifice my saturday midshift? *girlish heinous giggle*

i love vh1 classic. i do, i really do. blondie "heart of glass" is currently on, which isn't TOO high on the cheese factor, although debbie harry looks quite bored. before this, though? "word up" by cameo. hee hee. cops.. okay, get this, cops go to arrest him, but break out in dance as cameo rushes out to sing and unite the crowd, and ends up sneakily handcuffing the officer to a random lady in the crowd before dancing off into the sunset. well, maybe not sunset, but an industrial yard with bright lights, perhaps? yesterday, they played lou grahm "lost in the shadows" from lost boys. hooweee, did that bring some memories back! of the summer i OFFICIALLY discovered boys. i will always connect that fact and point in my life with two movies: lost boys and goonies. i was going to grow up and marry sean astin, dagnabbit! my DREEEEEEEEEEAMS, where have they GOOOOOOOONE?? meh, i'm sure i would be taller than him anyhow ;) though it WOULD be fun to be able to say you married a hobbit. hrm.

random ramblings. i dunno. i just feel worthless lately. like my life has simmered down to crap, and i'm actually CONTENT to stay there, to not bother to further myself any further. why go through the effort when status quo doesn't hurt? i need to do SOMEthing, even if it is just starting by cleaning my crappy corner by my desk where i toss EVERYTHING. *looks at the pile of clutter.... and shudders*

one thing i do NOT like about this channel, though, is that they play videos by songs that have long ago lost their shineyness and wonderfulness due to my years of going to karaoke and being tortured by drunken renditions of them... case in point "killing me softly", on right now. aww, it's over now, followed by a duo of stevie nicks and lindsey buckingham playing 'landslide', filmed fairly recently. this will always remind me of the joy of practicing with The Vacant Stairs. curse the dixie chicks, anyhow. *shakes fist in general easterly position*

maybe i have food hangover. we ran out last night and bought 3 kinds of ice cream and 2 kinds of doritos and gourged ourselves silly while watching t.v., starting with a HORRID movie that i knew was going to be painful, but that they insisted on watching "my boss's daughter" *shudder*... i taught my brother how to knit during some vh1 classic watching while waiting for adult swim to come on (amazingly, guns n roses "patience" is a perfect knitting background song. who knew?) i showed him what i found on a random tape of mine, the episode of blues clues where steve leaves for college and his brother "joe" takes over (i guess "donovan" was too hard for the kids to remember?), and we almost cried. it was greatly sad. reinforced the fact that you would laugh with steve because you always felt he was somewhat sarcastic and had a secret joke for the parents, but that joe... well joe seems somewhat like a big kid you just want to have sex with.

i'll leave you with the fact that paula abdul's "straight up" just came on, complete with arsenio hall. rawk.

i never minded it too much until the dixie chicks came out with it, at which point i wanted to strangle the thing.

we stopped playing it at band practice almost immediately after. although i wasn'ta huge fan of the song, i loved singing it, and how it sounded with norsican plucking it on her guitar, stacebass playing bass, and with scrumbles playing his accordion softly in the background.

aaah, when everything was so much simpler.

ha ha, yes. and i remember you reading me excerpts from the book you found at the grocery store of lost boys, and when we were watching it in the theatre - FINALLY - how you kept leaning to me and whispering about how much the left out ;)

and how JEALOUS i was that you had that book.

oh yes, and I'm still like that-if I've read a book and we see the movie, I have to point out what's wrong!

after my experiences with harry potter, i'm thinking that i shall see the movie and THEN read the books.

i enjoyed the 3rd harry potter movie so much more as i didn't know what was going to happen, whereas the others, it felt like there were 3 kids playing make believe and going through the motions that i knew they had to go through.

gah my computer is dumb and won't load the site.

i so wish i could find my windows installation disk. grar.

but i had also meant to say that heart of glass used to be (sometimes still is) my silly warm up song for karaoke.

sadly, methinks i'm outgrowing karaoke.

why go through the effort when status quo doesn't hurt?
You think you are Statue quo? HA, I laugh at that. You are so different that they do not have an "average" in your feild, thats a good thing.

I don't think we get VH1 classics, usually I watch the news at 9 and waith for adult swim either that or I'm playing some PC game, working on a PC or working in a PC... see a pattern there LOL.

I wish there was a tv/radio station that isn't an oldies station but a good music station. SOme of these songs died too quick and some of the old ones don't need to be treated like its old news.

yes, i love older music (i say as crosby, stills, and nash comes onto my mp3 player).. it's funny, because i could never really appreciate any of this music until i was older.

and now? i'm hungry.

I wasn't speaking that far back but now that you mention it they aregreat and deserve respect too.

Another thing I don't get is why when that decade is over its ok to group it all under say 80s but they put the junk in with the good stuff from that era.
aubkabob

oh absolutely. and it's lumped into the same decade although, say, general stuff from 1980 is drastically different than 1989, and would be more similar to stuff from 1979. and then there's so many different GENRE's.

yeah, now that i think of it, it peeves me, too.

"reinforced the fact that you would laugh with steve because you always felt he was somewhat sarcastic and had a secret joke for the parents, but that joe... well joe seems somewhat like a big kid you just want to have sex with."

Heh I stopped watching Blues Clues after Steve left in protest. But now maybe I should start again? Joe sounds mighty sexy!

i always planned to grow up and marry corey feldman. probably a good thing i didn't. he grew up to be a freak. which sean astin is a bit also. i was disappointed at how he turned out. he became awfully pudgy.

it was so sad when steve left blue's clues. what made things worse was the other changes they made. i guess they figured it was a good time to give the show a little over haul. but how traumatic....for me!
steve's in a band ya know. i saw them once, they're not too bad.

ha ha, a massively emotional freak. i saw surreal life!!! i swear, that boy cried every 5 minutes.

last time i saw sean, after the release of one of the movies, on like letterman or something, he had lost all of his hobbit weight and was this tiny tiny little man with a slight overbite. i wonder whatever happened to his hot brother mackinsey?

yeah, i've heard steve's music, and have really liked everything that i've heard. go steve. and his website is HILARIOUS.

it looks like mackenzie has been working consistently just not in anything big. and he's not all that hot grown up. on cable i caught him in the movie "How to Deal" w/Mandy Moore. that's from a couple years ago. not a bad movie tho.
