Where babies come from, and other adventures..

Do you ever feel deeply sorry for potted plants? I do. It's like an animal in a cage. Like a man in a cubicle. I say give all potted plants a new life in the earth. Grow roots, grow.
In the passing weeks, I have been feeling potted plant-ish. I have this incredible urge to sell all my things, pack some necessities in a backpack, and just go. I want to be alive before I am dead. I want to break free and finally breathe. This is not reality. This is a routine. Lather, rinse, repeat.

This morning Chuck P. was on a local radio station. Did you know he majored in journalism but then worked on a assembly line for freightliners to pay his student loans? He worked there for 14 years while writing. Chuck just got a little bit cooler. Choke comes out Friday.. go see it.! CS4? Already? Fuck you.

Be the first to answer the question on everyone's mind and win an ipod touch! No, not McCain or Obama... when will Amy Winehouse die?

Kids say the darndest things.. or something like that. If I ever have a kid, I want him to be like Angus.

One day I will go to Burning man... one day.

Hey Betches

This here is a blog I randomly decided to set up today. I believe the title says it all, but if it does not: This space on the interwebs is dedicated to my incoherent ramblings and links to things that I find interesting, and you probably do not.

Here is my randomness for today:

-The LHC launched yesterday, which moistened my dorky panties. I'm not all too sure about what it does, but I know that it could end in one huge colossal fail and that is enough to keep me interested. Some more LHC fun can be found here, here, and here.

-I found an interview with Tom Waits done by The Independent. Its a few months old, but still totally awesome. The interview highlights his insanity nicely. I especially liked, when asked to compare guitarists Marc Ribot and Smokey Hormel he goes on a tangent about octopuses and squid. I love you, Tom Waits.

- 10 lessons from the Buddha is a non-trite compilation of some Buddhist proverbs. I found them refreshing and enlightening. Since you know... its the Buddha and all.

-Apparently Steampunk is dead, whatever that is. The next wave of alternative trendy-ness is thought to be Circus Punk, which makes me a happy little acrobat! I think this is a challenge!

Cheers to poniesandunicornsandkittens! See you tomorrow, lovers!
