I wish you'd known me when I was alive (The good, the bad and the ugly)

The good: Dave Matthews Band made a couple of announcements today -- the dates for their summer tour (which does include a stop at the Woodlands -- *fist pump*), and the producer for their next studio album: Rob Cavallo, who produced Green Day's American Idiot, one of the best albums ever recorded. In fact, he's produced everything Green Day's done since Dookie, with the exception of their mediocre Warning, and he also produced the Alanis Morissette song "Uninvited," which has an astounding sound. Good news!

The bad: Patrick Swayze has pancreatic cancer. Swayze is a strange case, in that he's not a great actor, and never really made any good movies, but everyone loves him anyway. My mom and my sister used to have an enormous crush on the guy -- you have no idea how many times I was subjected to Dirty Dancing growing up. And how can you not like a guy fearless enough to take the lead role in To Wong Foo Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar? Here's hoping for the best.

The ugly: My car repair bill: $541. And I've lost my cell phone. I thought I had lost my cell phone. Turns out I'm a dumbass, and it was sitting on my living room floor. Not even underneath something, just sitting there. I looked for three hours, tore apart my sister's house looking there, went to every place I'd been yesterday to see if I'd left it there, and placed a panicked call to FRINAN (who was even nice [!] enough to ask René if I'd left it at his house). Yes, ladies (?) and gentlemen: I am a dumbshit. Yay for me.

And now, Elvis Costello sings a song that sounds exactly the way I feel.

Now playing: Elvis Costello - God's Comic

  1. Why is the ! about me being nice in brackets. That's bullshit. I totally deserve better than that you ungrateful bastid.

    Yes yes yes I know it's spelled bastard but that way is less typing. Or at least it would be if I didn't need to explain here...Oh well.

  2. It was a joke. See, 'cause you mock me all the time and stuff, it would seem to the unobservant that you're not a nice person. Which is not the case at all.

    I am not ungrateful at all, sir. Quite the contrary.
