Here's a video for "Weird Fishes." This band is still as freaky as ever.

Maybe the rest of you are totally over it, but I still have yearnings for "Amish in the City" - a.k.a. the best show that was ever broadcasted in this fine nation. Those were certainly different times, when "Amish in the City" flourished on national television - The Lord of The Rings was STILL a big effin' deal for some reason, I lived on Mulberry Street, John Kerry was running for President, and the Arcade Fire/Pixies were the only bands I ever wanted to listen to.
I found a website that gives cast updates, but I'm still not satisfied. I demand that a new season commence soon.

So yes, yes FINALLY we have the future in our little paws and we can look forward to something other then imminent doom and destruction. I actually voted for the winner. It's a good time to be alive.
Hipster Runoff hit the nail on the head with this article. My favorite parts are the reflections on Korn and Limp Bizkit. It got me thinking about other awful things from 10 years ago - like Duncan Sheik, that annoying Six Pence None the Richer, as well as Freddie Prinze Jr., 92.3 KROCK, Green Day and/or Garbage. Everlast.
Did they all get sucked into some weird zeitgeist-y vaccuum? How is it possible that none of these people have worked or performed in a decade, when a good portion of my adolescence was spent with bleeding ears and eyes from pure inundation? No puedo. I don't get it!
Nostalgia never goes out of style, ever ever. Especially nostalgia for sheer trash!

Something is equally vile and awesome about this retainer necklace, and I kinda really want one.
Debbie and I saw it at The Future Perfect on North 6th. Going to that store is sort of comparable to when guys go to strip clubs - you see something you desperately want, but it costs more money than it's probably worth, and anyway if you touch it someone will just pop out of nowhere and kick your ass. You just leave with a semi and no gratification.
Or maybe it's more like a museum. Expensive Lladro statuettes and pillows that cost $400, and if you happen to slip and fall, then you will most certainly break something, and then you're fucked.
Debbie why did we go in there! *SIGH*

I hate to sound like a big wimp, but people in my neighborhood could really use a boost of good-naturedness. There's plenty of nice people in the world, but this week alone, within a 2 block radius of my apt:
-I fell, smacked my head on the sidewalk, and then had someone steal my iPhone (which had fallen out of my coat pocket). Now I have big, puss-filled gashes on my cheekbone and knees, and someone else has my phone with all of my emails and personal info. Hope you enjoy it ASSHOLE. I can't even imagine feeling like it's OK to take something like that and not want to return it to the proper owner. BLAHGH.
-In a way waaaaay more upsetting instance, my friend Savannah was MUGGED on Halloween night - in a taxi! A bleeding stab victim forced his way into the car she was in, and when she tried to get out, his attackers hit her several times (including on the head and face), and stole her wallet.
Again, I don't get it.
WHY ARE PEOPLE SUCH JERKS!!!!
