3. Me. Being genius and spilling 2/3rds of my cup of water all over my. keyboard. Surprisingly it still works and hasn't shorted out nor electrocuted me, so...
4. ...yeah, that's pretty much all I got right now.
1. I just watched CSI:Miami from this past Monday and I actually LIKED it. *gasp* The story line was an actual STORY! YAY! How I heart Tamara Johns for writing a comprehensive ep. *\o/*
2. Tegan and Sara banter? WIN! I wish they'd kept it on the It's Not Fun, Don't Do It DVD. But that's why we have The Con DVD I suppose. Even better? Their cover of Umbrella. And even better than better? The medley of When I Get Up AND Umbrella. Muahahahaha! Also, that new thing Tegan did with Against Me! is kinda okay. It's TOTALLY not Against Me! but I can see how they'd want to go in a different direction nowadays. They get props for the title of it tho, Borne on the FM Airwaves of the Heart:
A SIDENOTE OF GREAT CONCERN: I never hardly ever read other people's comments, unless I'm stalking somebody *cough*odakota_rose*cough*, so the fact that I actually read comments on other peoples thingy-ma-bobs is a big thing. Kinda like that second hand smoke from a joint, or a sip of your first champagne, a little step that leads to bigger things. Like becoming a Doctor Green Thumb or that guy in really fancy restaurants and cruise ships whose sole purpose for existing is to create the Champagne Fountain. I MUST CREATE THE FOUNTAIN OF
Pretentious: def. 1: characterized by pretension: as a: making usually unjustified or excessive claims (as of value or standing) (the pretentious fraud who assumes a love of culture that is alien to him b: expressive of affected, unwarranted, or exaggerated importance, worth, or stature (pretentious language) (pretentious houses) 2: making demands on one's skill, ability, or means : ambitious
So I'm taking the b definition of this word is what they mean. Wow, so, am I pretentious cos I like a certain kind of music? Am I automatically put into a corner by the media and others who spew their opinions without taking into consideration what others think and or feel about it? Does the liking of rollicking, tongue twisting lyrics of a fast paced expression of intelligence and frustration make ME out to be a person of tension that has been pre'd? Am I considered to be a snob because of it? Why can't you just like what you like cos you like it? Since when does a certain sound that appeals to you condemn you into a specific box? Pigeonholing should be left to the bird houses cos houses need to be put in their place.
Tuesday was new music day. FORTH WITH THE PRETENSION!!!
