This is my brain on…

Turn a burner on your stove to the highest setting. Get a frying pan. Place it on the burner for twenty minutes. Get one egg. From a height of forty inches, drop it shell and all into the frying pan (note: do not butter pan!). Get a spatula. Mash the egg into the pan for one half hour.

Turn off heat and contemplate results.

You’re lookin at me.

Just saw a commercial for “Jersey Girl”. Will you join me in listing the pop songs that should be officially banned from soundtracks, commercial filler and and incidental music?

In this case the offending article is Katrina and the Waves’ “Walkin on Sunshine” – a song that had worn out its welcome a month after it was first released.

This has been the craziest week and there has been barely a moment to write about it. Not bad, just busy.

but I do have enough time for a comment whoring meme:

Sum up your opinion or impression of me in one word, leave it as a comment in this posting, and then post this sentence in your own journal.

thanks bearbait

Three things of little or no importance…

with 8 comments

These came to my attention today – two in a staff meeting, one while purchasing chai:

1) What is with the nagalene bottle of water thing? I thought it was confined to college campuses but now I see folks everywhere toting around liter bottles of water in clear plastic canteens. There’s something that creeps me out about it (aside from the fact that water is being surreptitiously privatized) and the bottles always somehow look dirty to me.

2) Women (and let’s be fair, some men) have to stop that new streaking technique when they dye their hair. You know the one that was developed to look more natural by producing varied shades? Well for the most part when you really look at it, it just means that people have vertical stripes in their hair. It’s the new acid wash.

3) Little Richard had an incredible voice on him. He recorded everything he ever did way too many times, but I just heard an early recording of “Lucille” and it’s some of the fiercest singing ever. You can tell that live he could hold his own against big RnB bands with little or no miking. One of the reasons I can’t bear programs like “American Idol” is that someone like him would never have a chance on them. Conversely, none of the people from those shows can make me give the slightest shit about anything I’ve ever heard them sing.
