So, we've been slacking, but I guess we both don't want to have entries for the sake of having entries.
Umm, until, of course, now. Meet the miscellaneous update! Lacking much in the way of direction, here's a collection of random stuff!
*In what will be the last M.I.A.-related piece of news from me for a while, apparently, that joke about her delivering her baby during the Grammys wasn't really far off. Apparently, she started having contractions right at the start of the Grammys, and was something like two hours into them when she got up and performed:
I freely admit, I'm not an expert on pregnancy (this may come as a shock to some of you out there). However, this seems like it would suck. A lot.
A lot, a lot, a lot.
Also, I understand that she really only had to sing one line (as instead of "Paper Planes," she was just singing the sample part for "Swagga Like Us"), but that poses the question:
Is it tough to remember that line when a human being is trying to escape from inside of you?
*Anyway, my computer has been acting unbelievably ungrateful to me for almost the past two weeks. To think, if it didn't want Gatorade, it didn't have to get so angry that it stopped working.
The major problem with this is that everything on that guy is completely unusable until I make the trek to the Apple Store, so until that day, anyone who wants to steal music from me (see "In which you, the reader..." 1/27) is going to have to wait. Sorry, guys. I really need to get on that.
*A couple songs that have been stuck in my head recently, many of which will be appearing on the corresponding playlist at the bottom of the post:
Animal Collective - "For Reverend Green" When I say "A song got stuck in my head," I more than likely mean, "There is one part of this song that is driving me absolutely insane." In this one, it's the intro, this heavily distorted organ that sounds like a soundtrack to a messed-up dream. Hence, I feel like I'm walking around in a messed-up dream.
This is not the feeling that you want when you have important stuff to do.
Ben Kweller "How It Should Be (Sha Sha)" My friend Kelly is next to me. She says hi. She's obsessed with Ben Kweller. I'm not, but I do love this song. Also, don't bother me while I'm watching Planet of the Apes on TV. That's right.
Doves - "Black and White Town." It's a really simple melody, but it just sounds kind of nice. I find that I only listen to the song every few months or so, but every time I do, it sticks around in my head for a while afterwards. Today was one of those days.
The Thermals - "Now We Can See" The album isn't out yet, but a few websites are streaming the song, and I promise you, if you listen to the whole thing, you will be walking down the street singing the hook. It's killing me.
Also, The Thermals are great. Alsoalso, they don't really make albums longer than like 35 minutes. So, music for people with short attention spans. Like me!
And, umm, that should about do it. Hopefully, I'll update for real soon. Kelly says bye.
Now, she's staring at the screen and wondering if she really wants to say bye.
Now, she said "Sha sha."
