In which my iPod mocks me

So walking home from Laurel and Frank's tonight my iPod decided to whip out some songs all in a row that, should someone off the street ask me what I was listening to, would make me reluctant to tell them.

"Click, Click Boom" by Saliva - Has Saliva written any songs that don't have "Boom!" in the chorus? To my knowledge, no.

"Car Song" by PaRappa the Rapper - I call it the Car Song because it is about PaRappa learning to drive. This song is sheer delight from start to finish. It got a lot of play in my circle of friends in college during my senior year. I couldn't go a day without hearing Charlotte and Lindy whipping out "I. Forgot. To Close. The Door." "YOU. Forgot. To close. The door."

"Rolling" by Limp Bizkit - No excuse for this one, really, save for the fact that every time I hear this song, I think of Emory's special dance to it, and I smile.

Then the iPod played "Creep" by Radiohead and I got all huffy and said "Whoa, iPod. I thought we were having a Guilty Pleasure mix tonight." So I skipped to the next song and it was "Johnny, Are You Queer?" by Josie Cotton. Whew! Thanks, for keeping it up, iPod!

In other music news, "My Name is Jonas" will be in Guitar Hero III, which means I will never stop playing it. Also, "Barracuda."

Memory Lane

It was Corinne's birthday last night, and several Oxy kids I hadn't seen in awhile were there, like Rachel and Nelson. Back at school I made those kids Sifl and Olly converts and this was one of our favorite episodes:

"I'm picking up all the hitchhikers, and I'm taking them all to JAIL!"

Every time "Just What I Needed" comes on the radio, we sing the "Wee-oo wee-oos."

Yeah, so Mayday's come and gone yet again. We got the movie in on time (not as early as last time, but still), and it was under the run-time limit by a whopping two seconds, which was fortunate, since Emory and I didn't really take that into account while writing the script. We just hoped for the best.

As is Mayday tradition, there was the period where we all thought what we were doing wasn't funny in the slightest, but then Paul edited the hell out of it and we thought it was good again, although had the typical worry that we will be the only ones to find it funny, ever. I'm not TOO worried, though. I figure if people liked "Hope, De-Koied," then this one shouldn't pose any problems.

Anyway, I slept a good portion of the afternoon (on the floor, since Paul stole my bed), and went to bed early and I'm still kind of out of it. So hopefully the sleep schedule will straighten itself out tonight.

Big thanks to Team Atrox Unlimited: Ethan, Lindsay, Danny, and especially Kim and Nell, who had to do the lion's share of the acting. You were all totally awesome and are welcome on our Mayday crew any time.

Okay, time to try and actually do some work.

What better way to get over hump day? (This clip's got Chester, Olly's mom, the amnesia song, and Precious Roy, so it's really all you need in life.)

I tried to find Llama School, but to no avail.

True tales of my stupid subconscious

I almost never remember my dreams, but I remembered one I had last night, so now you're gonna hear about it. BECAUSE NOTHING'S MORE INTERESTING THAN SOMEONE TELLING YOU ABOUT SOME DUMB DREAM THEY HAD.*

Anyway, Paul, Frank, and I were at some sort of mixer/social event, dressed pretty nice and all. We were wandering around, talking to people. Then it turned out that CM Punk and Hiro were there, and that they were our friends. CM Punk kept hassling Hiro to take him time traveling (if I wrote fan fiction, this is probably what I would write), and we were all having a good laugh about it. Then Frank and I noticed that Jess was there with some other people, so we went over to talk to her, only she kept avoiding eye contact and walking to other parts of the party (the party was in some sort of courtyard, and there was an art gallery inside, whose presence I chalk up to my having read half of You Don't Love Me Yet yesterday). So Frank and I chased Jess around, when suddenly my friend Lindy appeared in front of me and wants to know how I've been, and I was trying to figure out how to get around her (because dream-me is an asshole) when my alarm went off.

So there you go. Sort of a calvacade of people who moved away, it seemed. But I think CM Punk and Hiro is a team-up the world needs in these dark times.

*(One of my favorite scenes in Scott Pilgrim is the one where Scott tries to tell Wallace and Other Scott about his Ramona dreams, only they don't want to hear about them so Scott just stammers "I... but... just... You're not the boss of me?")
