a little comic relief


Scene: At the office in the accounting clerk section. Four clerks tapping away crunching numbers

Jules steps in stage right: Hey who made the coffee this morning. It’s pretty good.

Lilly: Thanks, it was me.

Jules: Good coffee. Tastes just like I like my women… strong and bitter. [Julian begins laughing at his own joke]

Lilly: [gives a sarcastic sympathy laugh] ha ha… ha.

Jules: C’mon… these are jokes… you know jokes. For a Monday morning. A little relief from the day. Get it?… strong and bitter.

😐  [blink blink blink]

Priscilla: Do I need to call Emmie?

something kinda fun


ok, so I’ve mentioned I play in a band with some friends.

But this little exercise let’s anyone create their very own band. Following the directions in this meme I found at my blog peep The Muse’s place you, too can have your very own (faux) band!

Here are the rules (and if you are reading this, you may consider yourself tagged). Let me know what cool band you’re in!

1 – Go to Wikipedia. Hit “random” or click http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random
The first random Wikipedia article you get is the name of your band. If it’s already the name of a band, you can hit random again.

2 – Go to “random quotations” or click http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3
The last four or five words of the very last quote of the page is the title of your first album.

3 – Go to Flickr and click on “explore the last seven days”
or click http://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days
Third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.

4 – Use Photoshop or similar to put it all together.

5 – Post it to your blog with this text and tag the blog buddies you want to join in.

I followed the directions and here is the result. We sound kinda like The Pixies, The Shins with a hint of Fu Manchu and a sprinkle of Dashboard Confessional along with emo and shoegazer influences. Look for our release soon!

reverting to childhood


I’ve been accused by more than a few people (blog peeps and local peeps alike) of being a 12 year old boy trapped inside a 40 year old body.

I’m sorry… I can’t help but laugh though when I play this game.  And I am NO gamer.  It’s just not my thing.  I have too much stuff to do over wasting time online playing games but THIS!…

I don’t even care if I die.  I just like pushing the up arrow to hear the sound. LOL!  Sorry… everyone’s got a little bit of 12 year old mentality inside though don’t ya think.

a little ego boost


Nothing like a good consentual groping and make out session to make a guy feel like he’s back in the game.

That’s it…

oh wait… maybe this. kinda reminded me of this song.

Of all we can offer a rogue kiss, tangled tongues and lips

just like heaven


My friend Amuirin posted a vid showing off the Sara Bareilles cover of a-Ha’s famous “Take On Me” from the mid 80’s.

I loved that song when it came out.

Reminded me of another song that came out a couple years later that I really like when it was released.

This is a really, really cool version of The Cure’s “Just Like Heaven.” by YouTuber, Amanda Loree.

enjoy.
