Drugs, Sex, and Rock and Roll

Saw Iggy and the Stooges (along with the Killers, MuteMath and some other awesome bands) at the Download Fest over the weekend.

Highlights:

Iggy Humping the giant amp, MuteMath kicking some major ass live, and Ghostland Observatory freaking me the hell out while still appealing to me.

Downsides:

Iggy Pop is a gross individual:

Thats what years of hard rockin’ and drug abuse will do to you. This man is a true rock star.

I want to kill the Wendy’s commercial girl. Seriously. She has quite possibly the most annoying voice I have ever heard.

Cold Beverage- G. Love & Special Sauce

A song for the summer if I ever heard one. I could go for a cold beverage right now.

Is it just me?

Am I the only person in the world that cringes every time someone uses the word “creeper” to refer to someone lurking in the background of a photo? The word is “creep”, people. Get it right.

Have you ever looked at someone you’ve seen literally every day for years, and suddenly realize that they look nothing like you think they do? I picked up the mail from the mailbox today, and saw my sister’s graduation picture. And the longer I looked at it, the more I realized that she looked way different then I thought she did. I mean it obviously was her and looked like her, but the more I looked, the more I noticed things that were different about her until she almost seemed like a completely different person. I guess your brain sort of ignores the details of something you see every day, until you force yourself to look at it, and suddenly it you see all of the things you never noticed before. Like, for example, the fact that my sister looks like a highschool senior, as opposed to the freshman I’ve always seen in my head. The scary thing is that I’m pretty sure that this happens every time I look more closely at something than I normally do. So I’m either not very observant most of the time, or my brain is really fucking with me.

Car Chase Terror! -M83

Quite possibly one of the strangest/creepiest songs I’ve ever heard. So is it weird that I find it kinda soothing? Probably.

Old People + Internet = Weird

Old people should not use the internet. It makes things strange. For example,  for a project senior year of high school, some classmates and I created a trailer for the fictional movie of Hamlet. Our teacher loved it and asked for a copy, which I gladly made her. Fast-forward to a couple of weeks ago. My buddy Tim calls me and asks if I have another copy of the video. Apparently he went to the high school to visit and my teacher told him that she lost her copy. I said to look on youtube (mostly out of laziness, as I didn’t want to copy another DVD). A couple days later I take a look at the page, and find this at the top of the comments list:

"I’m so glad that Tim P. told me to look for this on YouTube…I wish I had known earlier because my copy of the project got "clean sweeped" from my computer! The best video trailer EVER! Hope all is well with you Pat..tell the other guys I said ‘Hi.’

-Mrs. K”

Thats a nice note, you might think. Well, it is, but let me remind you, this was written on the YOUTUBE COMMENT BOARD. This is not the place for comments like that. For comparison, heres another youtube comment I’ve picked from a video at random:

"his 1337 shredzorz skilz pwn us UGers thiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii iiiiiiiis much. /sarcasm. 1 star."

Actually, in hindsight, I prefer Mrs. K’s method.

PS: Even though I’m pretty sure my girlfriend is the only one reading this, for those of you who are interested, here’s my video and the random video I stole a comment from:

I’m pretty sure those little DVD screens that hang down from the ceilings of minivans should be illegal. Not because they endanger the driver of the minivan, but because they endanger everyone else. I almost crashed into the van in front of me on my way back from work today because I was trying to figure out what cartoon the kids in the back were watching.

It was Spongebob.

"Love Song" by The Cure.

So begins my random “Song I’m Listening to Right Now”. Expect more to come.

(On a side note, this song is pretty representative of my general feelings right now, albeit in a completely non-emo way.)
