thank you, dojie, for the sexy icon!

as i've said a million and one times before, i'm a sucker for a big dork.

trying to concoct an article out of my ass this morning. had to reload office onto my computer since it.. sorta wasn't there anymore after reformatting my harddrive. i don't really have a SPECIFIC topic in mind for the article, maybe something general about music being the soundtrack to our lives, and different roles and genres that music has played in mine. i mean, hell. i've gone through so many phases. the bay city rollers were my firstest favoritest band EVER, i've been into rap (though a VERY short period), heavy metal, alternative, power pop... and now, lately, i've been getting a tremendous appreciation for all the music that came before my time, i.e. late 60's and early 70's.

we'll see if i can pull something out of me arse. if not, this may be the first month i don't have an article in the magazine since i started. but it HAS been a hectic month.

and will continue to become even more hectic. gah, i need to get me buns in GEAR, man!

i feel like i have pent up energy lately, and that i desperately need to focus all of that energy into... SOMETHING. mental energy, yes. physical energy? not so much.

i remember a time in my life (totally unrelated to anything i have said here thusfar) that i could recite every nation in the world in less than one minute. (my personal best was 51 seconds.) i thank the animaniacs for this, of course. unfortunately, i'm quite out of practice now and there's lots of thinking involved to make certain i haven't missed anything, not to mention that there's been MANY political changes in the world, and a lot of the countries listed no longer exist...

ha ha, def leppard just came on vh1 classic. aaaah, the memories. i was going to grow up and marry rick savage, of course. seeing as my previous marriage 'proposals' to the lead singer from bay city rollers, jimmy carter, bo duke, kirk cameron, and sean astin hadn't panned out.

special thoughts going out to andrea's mother, who apparently fell in a parking lot or something, and is in the ER. i hear it isn't overly SERIOUS, but that she's spooked.

*edit* blergy. in trying to write my article, i feel like the biggest yawn ever existed. i am SO not in touch with my witty-creative self today. i think i left it in bed.

i remember in the 5th grade, we had to learn it, and had to have spelling tests on the fifty states, and had to write them all down. i, of course, wrote them all down in alphabetical order, but i remember seeing classmates doing them randomly. they were constantly forgetting a few. i wanted to shake my fist in the air and yell "they're giving us a TOOL! use it!"

You could focus that energy on me :P hee hee, couldn't resist.

Anywho Ideas, ideas ideas. I'm sure you have one by now but I'm going to blurt out in no certain order ideas that I pull out of my... never you mind.
Lets see whats this month, AH BACK TO SCHOOL!
This is going to require some work or you can make it all about you, anyway its all good.

Songs that remind you of school memories going back or just at school in general, share a short antidoe. Collect statemtns from people and write them down, you can introduce this as part of music of our lives

Same general Idea different statment. you are headed back to school, what songs are you packing for the trip? Around the corner around the state it doesn't matter the distance.

(sticking with back to school theme)Scollars everwhere are headed back to classes and you wondered just what the might be taking music wise when you notice, the landscape of music is changing. Thats where you go all music technology, CD players dying and data-type music players being ushered in, you even notice the growing trend of CD players that play data types (MP3 WMV) and the influx of Cheap(er) solid state players and HD players (Ipod shuffle / Ipod, there are other players too). People just happy to listen to digitized music on their PCs. Not much research requred, might be able to pull this in a pinch.

OK I'm done :)

aww, thank you for the wonderful suggestions! now, if i paid a bit more attention back when i was writing about such things... as wonderful of a gig that a music writer seemed, i so don't miss the stress that came along with it.

I'm glad I'm not the only one in love with Conan!!!!

Everybody thinks I'm a freak!

i always said i'm gonna marry me a man like conan, or chandler.

granted, after watching more FRIENDS, i think i would rather mate with a Ross. chandler is funny, but he just doesn't have the geekery going on.
Jul. 19th, 2006 10:27 pm (UTC)
Oh, I don't know... I always thought that Chandler had is own kind of geekiness. I would take him over Ross any day.
Sep. 5th, 2006 10:07 pm (UTC)
i totally understand, i heart him! he also has that underlying insecurity, too, but i still think i would end up with ross.

we're dorks, you realize.

Sexy? *scoffingsnort*

I need to paint. damn. Seeing your pent-up mental energy just brings out mine!
Jul. 15th, 2006 03:16 am (UTC)
i'm certain that if i ever become a bit more organized, that i shall start to paint, even if it's just random color slappings on a pallet. just something about paint - the smell, the texture, the boldness - that... MEROWR!
