this is an awesome meme. [Jan. 26th, 2010|10:17 am]

Gacked from dsudis and iuliamentis, the "Be Pete Wentz" Poetry Meme works thusly[sic]:

1. Put your music player of choice on shuffle.
2. The first lines of twenty songs = a poem; the first line of the twenty-first song is the title.

For bonus points, see how many sources you recognize!

beautiful girl, lovely dressCollapse )

it's been a while [Jul. 25th, 2009|06:52 pm]

[music |Opposite of Hallelujah - Jens Lekman]

like, two months, since last i posted, which was right after i got out of the hospital (or hopsital as my nephew would say). healthwise, i've been fine since then. there was an annoying period of wearing a heart monitor, which unfortunately coincided with going to florida with a couple of friends (no going in the water for me). i did get to see the ocean and the space shuttle though, both for the first time. i've had a couple brief recurrences of the arrythmia, none for more than a couple seconds. the longest was probably a couple days ago, when i was rocking out to whitney houston. music in general has the tendency to cause me to dance exuberantly, which occasionally causes palpitations. so i guess music is pretty dangerous.

i can't have caffeine or adderall, although alcohol is okay, which is good news. my doctor changed me over to strattera, which is a non-stimulant ADD med, which proceeded to a) not help me at all and b) make me nauseous. ugh. i finally just stopped taking it recently, because, fuck that shit. i'm going to more productive with no drugs and no nausea than with that shit. i'm really hoping at this point that i can go back to at least small amounts of stimulants later. i have two papers that were due at the end of the school year that i still haven't turned in and it's not looking good. i also have a lab job although fortunately i'm teamed with the highly motivated sgt. smaht, who should be able to keep on top of me in terms of me getting my shit done.

uh other than that it's been a lot lazing about. i feel like my creative juices have been flowing a lot more lately so i've been trying to write more, but it's slightly hard to do that when extremely-overdue-term-paper-guilt is hanging over me. i've been playing this really awesome harvest moon spinoff called 'rune factory'. it's tremendous. tom and jason came down and we marathoned season 2 of 30 rock, which totally converted them, and after they left i marathoned seasons 1 and 3. if you haven't seen 30 rock go watch it now. all 68 episodes.

oh, i got into this linguistics conference in paris (france) in september. so i'll be going to europe! after 5 days or so for the conference i'm going to head to brussels where i will stay at a friend's house. then i'll go to bavaria for oktoberfest where i'll be meeting sgt. smaht and her fiance. between brussels and bavaria i may go other places but i haven't figured that out yet and things are largely dependent on finances. but yay!

i has a new webtrons:

http://home.uchicago.edu/~klecha/

comments/suggestions/etc plz.

i keep coming up with schnazzy ideas for the design that i think are clever, but unfortunately for myself, my personal taste in web design is simplicity: text and geometric figures only, two or three colors.

going down the youtube bunny-hole [Apr. 6th, 2009|12:34 am]

almost as good as the wikipedia one.


first, beyonce's amazing "single ladies".

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FDEuqzu_pSE

then, the dance number that inspired the choreography.



then, pure awesomeness.



then, a random dance number both performed and choreographed by the guy who choreographed the one above.



then, gwen verdon, the lead dancer in "mexican breakfast" above, in her role as lola in the 1958 film version of "damn yankees", one of my favorite musicals ever.



from which of course follows "damn yankees" in its entirety.

unfortunately, one has to go to bed sometime.

does anyone know what to do when you get mail that isn't addressed to you? like, the address is right but its not my name, and it looks like a fancy important letter of some kind. i'm sure there's some protocol for what to do in this situation but i don't know what it is.
