Ok, here is what I have been talking up to several of you…David Cross’s It’s Not Funny. I really hated him for awjhile after the embrassment of Mr. Show, but if you have a long car ride or 2 hours not at work to listen to this, I strongly suggest it. It is what you would consider “liberal” humor, basically taking on homophobia/racism without being preachy (i.e. Margaret Cho). Although Bush-bashing is a bit overdone at this point, it is still funny. I’ve uploaded. You know what to do. And please don’t report me to the authorities.
Philosophical thought of the moment: is there a point in our early-mid twenties where our life is cemented and we become who we actually are- who we will be for the rest of our lives? No matter where I move to or what I do, what job, what apartment, the same shit always happens to me, always in a Groundhog Day-esque way. Same shit, different city. So, does moving somewhere else or chaning a job ever solve anything? Is it really truly possible to change our lives- change the sole core of our personalities and experiences?
I have lain in bed for half the day glued to The Red Tent. I got it a couple of years ago but first came out but never picked it up til now. It is fucking engrossing. I wish we had read this in Hewbrew School instead of those scary Torah Tunes slideshows.
The Bravery is already too cool for those who are too cool to admit they like them. I find them Mediocre but listenable.
Ted Leo does a cover of “Since U Been Gone"!
Weezer is basically shit now. Even Rivers Cuomo doesn’t want to be in the band.
These are the kinds of things that happen, though, when you're
living the moment, which is Cuomo's new mantra — untethered from miserable
thoughts about the past and future and free at last from the greedy ego, Cuomo
is currently in communion with his deep, true self. This self needs to be free,
and, accordingly, Cuomo has been careful not to make any pacts about future
Weezer recordings; he has also only agreed to support this album until the end
of this year.
Let’s wait for this one to suck.

Tobey Maguire don’t give a fuck. He is just not giving into that heartthrob image and has “let himself go” as some would say. I like it. I want to just sit around with him and snack.
The Dukes of Hazard looks intriguing. In the most superficial way ever.
