Am I alone in this? Yeah, I thought so... [11 May 2008|01:06am]
Don't you hate it when you randomly think of a friend from the past and decide to Google her, only to discover that your best friend from elementary school may be a convicted murderer? I guess we've all been there. Right?

The scary thing is that I'm not surprised.

Everyone loves a good multiple choice question [08 Apr 2007|11:59pm]
Today I said, "It seems that I am no longer a vegetarian." Who was the most surprised?

Was it
a) the person I had known for several years?
b) the person I had known for several months?
c) the person I had known for several minutes?

Fun with Math! [09 Mar 2007|09:02pm]
[ mood | totally sober ]

1 beer 2 glasses of wine 2 Irish coffees 1 beer = drunk
It does not matter that this this was a 6 hour process, complete with meal. Getting only 2 hours of sleep the previous night 2 peer pressuring parental figures = drunken reality.

Who wants to watch post-modern and/or socialist African cinema? [13 Feb 2007|10:36am]
[ mood | It should be obvious ]

Beth finds her surprisingly good netfilx films by randomly navigating the site, so I decided to do the same. I found some of the films that I watched in my African Cinema course and realized how much I enjoyed the damn class. The screenings were always "the things that were keeping me from SAW meetings" so I hated them at the time. Plus there was the TA who didn't like big words and clearly didn't want me to translate the French text into English. (She didn't, so why should I?) And the fight with the professor, who ended up liking me and talking to me about SAW, the administration, and protests.

Anyway, I really like those films and I think that I can find most of them through netflix and a local video store. The juxtaposition and/or hybrid of tradition and modernity is really interesting in some, and the anti-colonial sentiment comes through in all. Who wants to watch some? Would it help if I provided academic articles that examined the films?

I got laser eye surgery on Friday and have learned a few things since:

- The eyes and throat are closely related.
- Some prescription eye drops taste horrible as they drip through your eye sockets and down your throat.
- Over the counter eye drops are flavorless.
- Judging by my increased visual range, I hadn't really been using my right eye before the surgery.

Here is another way of putting the last pointCollapse )

God help us all when "Flavor of Love 2" comes out on DVD [22 Nov 2006|11:15pm]
I think that Netflix may lead to the end of civilization as we know it, and here’s why:

For the past three days I have had a song stuck in my head. Every few minutes I hear “Anna, Anna, Anna, Anna, Anna Nicole! Anna, Anna, fabulous Anna, Anna Nicole! She’s so outrageous!” In the pre-Netfilx days (BNE), I would have simply looked up Bobby Trendy, laughed, and ended it there. However, in the Netflix Era (NE…does BNE make sense now?) I can now rent the show and be reminded of how everyone involved with it made an ass out of themselves.

My queue is filled with classics, (mainly of the camp variety) yet I can get good movies anywhere. This knowledge has led me to rent crappy reality shows. Wasn’t “Funny Face” similar to Cycle One of “America’s Next Top Model?” Sure it was. Who needs Eve Harrington when you have Wendy Pepper?

Pray for me…

Democrats Take the House Bitches [08 Nov 2006|05:41am]
[ mood | complacent ]

Not that I am a Democrat or support the party. However, this presents the potential to fuck with Bush, so I am pleased.

Squirrel fight!!! [31 Oct 2006|12:18am]
I heard a strange noise the other night, which I labeled as cats fighting or perhaps a raccoon attack. But no. There are some squirrels doing battle on the phone lines outside my window.

Drunk thoughts/Guess the quote! [29 Sep 2006|12:28am]
[ mood | drunk ]

I just got back from hanging out with Shane. He had tried describing me to someone and basically wanted to say that where "some people do arts and crafts; we judge." Said judgment, is (of course) skewed as he noted that we judge those who do not place emphasis our favored social movements, such as those of brown people and women. However, we sexualize women and simultaneously take issue with the way in which women respond to this. That is, women dressing in "provocative" clothing is attractive/good, yet reflects poorly on said women, thus they lose our respect.

I hope others are on this wavelength (I'm looking at you Meg and Mayra).

So THIS is what the morning looks like here [31 Aug 2006|08:47am]
[ mood | full of coffee ]

Thanks to the miracle of taking sleeping pills and alarm clocks, I was able to wake up before noon! Four hours earlier in fact (that's right, my math skills haven't improved much since the 2nd grade, but I was workbooks ahead of the vast majority of the class).

As I just praised alarm clocks, I think I have to choose a new least favorite sound. After a bit of consideration, I came up with garbage/recycling trucks. As someone who sleeps with the windows open, they are really obnoxious. Luckily, Sunset Scavenger (the SF garbage company) isn't as bad as their Santa Cruz counterparts, as they don't come at 5 am and break tons of bottles as the dump them in the truck. How is it that all garbage trucks have really loud brakes though? Are they never changed? Is the emergency brake used to stop the vehicle? And it's official: I really need a job, if for nothing else than to keep me from thinking about brake systems.

This will only make sense to Project Runway fans... [11 Jul 2006|03:57pm]
[ mood | season 3 starts tomorrow! ]

Wendy Pepper is HILARIOUS! For people who have only seen season two: picture Santino. Now remove talent, a sense of humor, a trace of humility. Then replace those qualities with paranoia, a persecution complex which provides delusional memories, and a desire to sabotage (more talented) competitors.

I especially loved how following her (incomprehensible) win/placement in the final three, she hugged Austin for a really long time and didn't take the hint when he attempted to pry her hands off of his body.

I want to rent the DVD just to see the perplexed stare that Nina Garcia gave the other (sane) judges when the guest judge chose Wendy. And of course, Heidi's attempt to change the guest's mind.

I usually hate reality TV, but for some reason I love Project Runway and Top Chef. The drama that is present (added mostly through editing and music) seems almost comical when you remember what they are actually doing in the competitions. Granted, winning could help their careers, but they are making dresses out of plants and meals out a gas station food. COME ON!

Damn those impoverished conservatives [07 Jul 2006|02:40pm]
[ mood | artistic (aka un-patriotic) ]

I just saw this blog that claims that "there are rural areas between San Francisco and Santa Cruz which are traditionally truly patriotic. Half Moon Bay comes to mind. But, even that town is subject to gentrification and the artistic influence, which inevitably leads to a more un-patriotic crowd."

Um...so once a town is gentrified (aka rid of those who receive a lower income) patriotism goes with them. Therefore, he is implying that to be patriotic is to be lower on the economic scale. He also links patriotism to be politically conservative, thus conservatives must be lower on the economic scale.

Yet he is from Simi Valley, a rich white suburb of LA (remember the Rodney King trial?). That blows the theory a bit. I guess this just means that he doesn't have a full grasp on the impact of gentrification, as displaced people are often not the concern of true patriots/conservatives.

GayDar: brought to you by Wikipédia [24 May 2006|09:02pm]
[ mood | ready to sell bibles? ]

"Le gaydar est la capacité pour déterminer si quelqu'un est "gay". En anglais, le mot "gaydar" est un mot-valise formé à partir de "gay" et "radar". Cette capacité est basée sur beaucoup de facteurs, y compris l'habillement, la parole, ou la durée de contact visuel avec l'observateur."

Just so you know... [16 May 2006|11:40pm]
If you write an essay that critiques the implicit racism in an article, ask the professor in advance if he is friends with the author. Otherwise your evaluation might accuse you of not showing "intellectual generosity."

another "bitch" session on drivers [13 Apr 2006|12:23am]
After the press people from SAW started receiving death threats I realized that I needed to get fucked up in San Francisco. Luckily, the collapse on Devil's Slide (such an innocuous name) kept Bob from leaving and thus guaranteed strong drinks. Yet, on my way I had to deal with the constant concern that due to the rain I would not be able to see cars without their headlights on (which was the case) and that a horrible accident would ensure (which was not the case).


Why must this be the only time that I want the police to do something?

-the parody of telenovelas, complete with mascara stains to the clavicle and a drunk abusive fiance
-Jerri Blank

Delta (a hippie way of saying minus):
-getting sprayed with monistat (Ngoc got it in the hair, but I just got it on my shirt)
-the fear that Smurfette (formerly Tobias and Vanity "Faggot" Smurf) would hurt us

"Inspectors have found no proof that Iran possesses a nuclear warhead design or is conducting a nuclear weapons program"

In other news, the US just launched an attack on "Iraqi Insurgents." This is the largest air strike since the beginning of the war, the three year anniversary of which is in two days. After bombing the area northeast of Samarra, ground troops will go/have gone in to target the survivors.

Le sous-marine jaune [03 Mar 2006|01:47am]
I has to write about the last movie I have watched for my french class. Upon realizing that it was Zoolander I searched the room for an alternative to writing about the world of male models and assassination attempts. Luckily, I saw the box for Yellow Submarine. I wrote the following random shit about said movie:Blue Meanies = Les méchants bleus = the malicious blue onesCollapse )
