i will admit that uga the dog is adorable

It's crap like this that really makes me hate my second alma mater. These are exactly the kind of people that made my life miserable in Athens. Have I mentioned for the 8,000,000th time how glad I am to be out of there?

Apparently, my hometown is now a bustling arts community. I really didn't notice that when Mike, Jen and I hit the L.A. Sting room for beer and megatouch the other night. Of course, it's funny that my best friend works at two of the establishments mentioned in the article.

I still highly doubt I'll be moving back to the homestead anytime soon.

if you see the rabid child, say "hammer down" for me...

I got this DVD from Mike's mom for Christmas, and we just finished watching it. I used to love TMBG so much in high school and college, but after a while, I found the shows to be more of the same and the fans just slightly frightening. (The gaggle of freaks wearing lab coats at a 1997(8?) show at Irving Plaza were the sign that maybe I didn't need to see the band every time they played NYC anymore.) Nonetheless, it was interesting. You do need to appreciate them as progenitors of the alternative revolution. It made me want to bust out Lincoln.

Other pop culture loot I got this week include the "new" Shins and Broken Social Scene records, the second Strokes album and the Darkness record. I'm excited to finally have new music. I've listened to the Shins record once, and I dig it. I think Broken Social Scene will be a good band to do homework to. (That is not a dis at all -- I'm always looking for good background music whilst I study).

Now if only someone would get me some of the Homicide seasons on DVD and the Ben Stiller Show collection for my birthday....(hint, hint)
