More BFFs and Baby's Daddies

Yet another installment of people who should love me as much as I love them.
This is I believe the fourth one. I lost track. But remember this one, this other one, and this one also.

Come on ladies, let's hang out and watch Bridesmaids together.

Laura Marling

Annie Erin Clark


Come on dudes! Let's do this.

Things that have made me cry today...

*Disclaimer: (Before my family starts to worry or something) 2011 has been a pretty freaking cool year. I have had a lot to be thankful for. Here's hoping next year is even better.*

I have been totally bumming it today, watching daytime, eating things that I will regret tomorrow, marinating in my own juices (you are all welcome for that one), etc. etc. No Black Friday shopping for this gal. This broke gals. But that's ok. From the looks of it, being broke has saved my life today....or possibly the lives of others. I can be ninja crazy sometimes.
All this tv watching has been a little emotional, to be quite honest. So I turned off the tv, and decided to spend the rest of the night you tubing music videos and/or porn, and listening to music so loudly that my neighbors will wanna get invited to this gangsta's party. But before I get on that, here's some of the things I have cried over, and I swear I'm not even pms'ing...I think. Where's my calendar?

Things that made me cry today:

- The assholes at the local news show surprised a nurse with the early holiday visit of her Soldier husband. What asses?!

- The one commercial where the dude in the army gets a book with a recorded reading by his kid (don't remember if it's a boy or girl. That's not important)

- The burn victim on Dr. Drew.

- Maury's DNA results show. So many daddies, so little time.

- Multiple universes!!

- Re-watched Queen of the Damned and realizing I have the soundtrack and am still kinda really into it. Ugh. Tricky and Korn are on that, you guys. (Full Disclosure, I have two Korn cds. Double ugh!)

- Re-watched before Sunset. Need I say more?

- The commercial where the bubbles are talking and are friends and one of them pops and the other one is all "nooooooo" and crying and then pops. It always gets me. Such a metaphor for life.

- Jillian Renynolds is still on tv.

- The preview for one of those CW shows came on where all the people are gorgeous and then I contemplated where my life went wrong, and then remembered the multiple universes and how maybe in one of them I'm on a CW show. Then I remembered that I remembered the theory of multiple universes, and got all existential again.

- The commercial with happy women, dressed stunning while eating chocolate.

- The people pepper sprayed in that one Walmart probably didn't get their Xbox.

No, TV has not been kind to me today. This is why I stay away from it most of the time. And, as I tell myself every night between my nightly prayers (aka jam sessions)why I don't need to upgrade to something flat and big, and cable-y.

Signs of a Music Addiction

I have always been in love with music, but I am pretty sure that as the years progress that love became an obsession and then a full blown addiction. And I’m completely okay with that. It is an addiction that keeps growing and shows no signs of slowing down, let alone stopping.
In case, you, reader, are wondering if you may also suffer from this but are not very sure, here are some of the signs…

- Have considered selling furniture/appliances to go on a shopping spree at Amoeba.

- Making a pros and cons list on giving up eating so you can use money for groceries at Amoeba instead.

- Forego shopping for things you need (like clothes, and shoes, etc) because one of your favorite artists is going on tour…again…for the third time…in the same year.

- Overdosing every night on E*

- Doctor? What doctor? I’ll just listen to this “Feel Better” playlist on shuffle and I will get better.

- Can only give and receive advice in the form of song lyrics.

- Have music playing at least 21 hours a day. (I prefer KCRW on my radio while I sleep, until the 3am news)

- 90 percent of your wardrobe is band t-shirts.

- Tattooing your body with band logos.

- Your time spent youtube-ing live music performances/music videos > your time watching online porn.

- Will never not refer to your “awesomeness” as jelly and/or milkshake.

- Have a different song assigned as a different type of ringtone for every notification and every contact on your phone.

- Wait until the good part of said ringtone to come on before answering your phone. If you lose the call, they will leave a voice mail and then you hear THAT song.

- Tune boring/gossipy/whiny people out by singing a song to yourself.

- Name your unborn children after your favorite songs.

- Hear a song. Like it. Learn to play it. Repeat.

Etc. etc. etc.

If this sounds like you or someone you know, we should totally hang out and probably get married.

Also, I would like to thank my enablers/dealers: Sophia, Kathy, Ariel, Jason, my bro, and everyone at KCRW. I have put you all in my will and/or saving a kidney for you.
