So it happened. My once favorite band came out with the infamous “Greatest Hits” package. I guess I should rephrase that. They were my favorite band from 1995 until 1999. Woo! I am excited that Rhino Records is putting it out none the less. That part is cool. I did wish they put something more interesting than just normal album cuts on there. Sure there is one live cut and a remix. But give us something the fans haven’t heard! Most fans either loved it, or didn’t take to it. It was very cut and dry. So most fans would already have that shit.
I actually heard about this from a friend in the biz. She heard a rumor from her friend at Rhino months ago. Why i don’t have a job there yet, I cannot answer that. That shit, I would love. My god. But i am just wondering how Rhino got to licensing it. I presume it’s cos their former label had a contract for 4 records. The band only delivered 3 until they broke up “amicably”. Perhaps that last album was left in limbo for a compilation for the future and Rhino stepped in and bought out that last option. That is the only thought to how that happened. Blah blah blah.
it’s the last nail in the coffin that i cant wait to lay to rest
Tonight I went to the famous Bagel City on the Pike with the Moms. It had been forever since we had our Tuesday night dinner extravaganza. It was nice and I paid. We talked a lot about my future travels with Emily and getting my passport and me wearing scarfs and getting a hair cut soon and my sister’s wedding and how my Father taught himself PowerPoint and how to import scans he did basically by himself and really quickly and whatnot and about Victor the photographer and my Mother wanted to know where Becca was and how my Cousin is in Belize and some other random oddities. I even rented a movie and gave her the free one at Blockbuster. I rented Ghost World. It looks incredibly funny, but it’s labeled a “Drama” – Fucking wankers at Blockbuster.
I am also still reworking and finishing up some more details on my foto gallery and will have that up sooner than later for real. Moving over 1000+ images is a bitch. Especially with have of them including captions. Fuck!
i wish i could have sympathy for your sorry ass, but it’s only your fault
It’s funny what small things in this world will make you forget about things that have been bringing you down for so many years. Funny how that works out. Even more funny how I can laugh at it now. It used to be a silenced sigh. Now it’s utter disappointment. But it’s all in the past and totally out of my hands. Anger and resentment will always be there with a lining of love. That love will always be there. Like pierced skin. It’s a naked truth that I hide from even myself too many hours during the days. But we all have to move on.
On to other stuff….
Tonight me and the Moms went to Panera Bread for dinner. We both got chicken sandwiches. And there was this really cute looking Israeli girl sitting on the couch reading a book she just got at Barnes and Noble. Then on the way out me and the Moms got some pasteries to bring home. I noticed the cashier girl totally checked out my woofie of a zit on my cheek. I sorta chuckled. Oh well.
Then i went to Blockbuster and rented PEARL HARBOR. I dont care what anyone else says, I liked it. I even liked Titanic. Yes, the plot lines wore thin, but they are theatrical commercial war movies. What do you expect? The battle scenes in Pearl Harbor were great. Perhaps I am really in to the war movies because it’s a secret passion of mine to become a pilot. Who knows. I do know that yes, the love stories in both movies were accentuated way too much. But we all have love in our lives. Some more than others. Some of it makes us sick. Some of us just envy. Some just jealousy. You would be ignorant to say you dont wish to have that, at times. And yes, the girl in Pearl Harbor was a slut.
Today at word we started learning Flash. Pretty interesting stuff. I still feel dirty messing with that stuff. Not too sure why, but I do know that I feel so much better and more productive when I am not in front of the computer when I get off work. Thank goodness i’ve not needed to be on the computer after work much. But work was cool today. I got Twix’s twice today and both times they were shared with Laura. She’s a funny girl. Totally on the same wave length as me sometimes. We are starting a quote tree. Basically anytime anyone says anything remotely funny we write it down on a note card and put it on the bulletin board. Some of this shit is really funny. Most are incredibly sexual inside jokes. Also on a side note, I love how that H to the Izzo song samples the Flaming Lips. I hope they are getting properly compensated. Maybe for once, Warner Bros. Records will do something right.
this is stranger than i thought, six different ways inside my heart
About 30 minutes before I left for work my Colin came up to me and asked if i could find an image of poo and stick it behind the kangaroo for a graphic. No problem. Little did I know…I spent the next 20 minutes looking for pictures of pooh. I am really looking for a sillohette of pooh. Maybe a cartoon picture of pooh. Is it really that hard to find pooh on the internet? The internet is filled with mullet pages, yet there is no poo!!! What is up with that. If you know of any pooh, send it my way! Please.
I got the new Collective Soul CD today. I listened all the way thru cos i am giving new music a try. It sucked right thru. The interesting point was a MORPHINE cover. Mega odd! It was like hardrock/metal MORPHINE! Just imagine if NO DOUBT covered a Joni Mitchell song!
In other news I went to dinner with the Mom’s like we always do now on tuesdays. I ate my eggwich on the chocolate chip bagel and had two potato pancakes. Then we chilled and talked about me wanting to be a awesome housewife. The problem is that i’d have to marry a lawyer, doctor or professional of a women who could support us all. I typically like the musicians, artists and photographers. I am doomed to a life of poverty or a 9-5 job. But seriously, i’d love to be the house wife and clean toilets and pick up the kids. As long as the wife brought home the cash so I could buy toys, i’d be a happy camper!
Then I came home and pooped. Then I pooped again. I shouldn’t have eaten two of those potato pancakes!
