i like how i don't mind stuffing fistfuls of sugary substances into my gaping maw on a daily basis, but i HAVE to have splenda in my tea.

shrug.

in a musician note (pun only slightly intended after the fact): two artists should never EVER have their music redone for ANY reason whatsoever:

The Beatles
Violent Femmes

you don't mess with a classic, and if you do, you end up sounding like a) you don't have enough creativity to do your own freaking music, b) you want to capitalize on something that was unique in its own right and take a slice of that pie for yourself c) you stink as a musician.

ya just can't redo any of their songs WELL. says me.

i also had a moment of "omg, i'm so freaking HAWT!" as i padded outside at 3 pm, no bra, cloud stretch pant pajama bottoms, thick blue bathrobe, unbrushed hair stuffed under a kercheif, giant fluffy orange striped socks stuffed into flip flop sandals, carrying a bag of garbage and not one, not two, omg, not even THREE, but FOoooOOOooUR empty pizza boxes, and had to walk past the hot UPS man dropping off a parcel next door. i'm quite certain you could see my hairy legs in the gap between pajama bottoms and socks, black hair glistening off of my snow white legs.

i am a goddess.

wow, my brother has a TON of american idol music on his computer. i really really really need to hook mine back up so i can have my own music again. it's funny how i never think of my brother of being gay, and then occasionally i'll run across something of his that is SO stereotypical of the gay man, i.e. all the american idol, erasure, and corrs on his computer. or the way he shrieks like a five year old girl when there's a bug in the room.

i love my brother.

I could have written that myself.

As for the music thing, I disagree. Come Together was better by Aerosmith....but then, I never did think the Beatles were as good as the hype. *shrug*

So I'm guessing you didn't like I Am Sam... I agree that if you can't do it well just don't do it, but I did think that (while not better than the originals) the artists lent an interesting perspective to some of the songs. At least for that movie ;)
"i'm quite certain you could see my hairy legs in the gap between pajama bottoms and socks, black hair glistening off of my snow white legs." Haha. Sounds almost like a fairy land.

Erasure is gay? I know a good portion of their songs by heart...

i KNEWD it! ;)

that was always an argument when my brother and i were in our late childhood to middle teens: "you're brother is going to be gay!" "nuh uh!" "yuh huh - he listens to erasure!" "that doesn't mean anything, erasure's a good band!"

and yup.

Dude, it's nice synth pop! If synth pop is gay, then I don't want to be str8! Like Keith Urban or whatever.

Kind of funny - it reminds me of something that happened after work the other day...a lady of the night approached my Indian co-worker and offered to "date" him for $20, totally skipping over me.

He says it's because (depending on the day) "You look like a ghey", or because "White people go down hill fast after 25". I tell him it was because she knew that, being a Tamil, she wouldn't have to work as hard for her money with him.

HA! Small Penis Jokes unite people of all colors!

Indeed they do. Indeed they do.

Not that I would know much from experience, not having a penis and all. I, uh, swear I don't...

Hee hee. I could totally be a 50 year old 500 lb southern congressman sitting here in front of my computer with a wife beater.

Or I could be a unicorn!!!

Four empty pizza boxes...good gads woman! How much pizza can one girl eat??? Tell me you were saving boxes for some sort of arts and crafts project yes?

I had thought about taking a picture of all the odd socks I have, but figured that would make for one helluva boring post, so instead I shall sneak them in occasionally with other ones, instead!

We did When I'm 64 in the Vacant Stairs... and I was halfway through a cover of "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" but my hard drive crashed and I lost it.

i had been thinking about my statement, and i think that i truly meant that the beatles should never be sung in karaoke, no matter how good of a singer you are.

there's a couple of musicians that i adore that did good renditions of beatles songs, i.e. 'across the universe', etc.

so i stand corrected.
