i'm not even supposed to be here today.

Kevin Smith starts shooting a Clerks sequel in January. Hate all ya want, but I love most of the man's oeuvre. (Of course, I have yet to see Jersey Girl.) I wonder if the indie success of Linklater's Before Sunset helped inspire the 10-years-later project.

steamy scandals and love handles

If this video doesn't inspire you, I don't know what will. Rump Posse, you are AMAZING. I love these guys.

i still, however, like "hyperballad." and the sugarcubes.

After watching the cheesiness that was the Olympic opening ceremonies last night, I have decided once and for all that Björk is completely overrated. Were it not for her exotic, elfin, woman-child looks, she would be just another Enya hawking greatest hits records on late-night TV. I find it disturbing how many men are into her just because of her looks. She is completely objectified and exoticized. She's craptastic new-age music with a hipster-friendly image. Don't get me started on the a capella record she's putting out...

And, what was up with that giant dress that went out over the athletes? She looked like a wicked witch trying to harness all the world's athletic prowess with her 30,000 square foot skirt. But that, of course, is because I'm a cynic who hates cheesy opening ceremonies. (Don't even get me started on the laser DNA strands...)

file under: ewwww

I promise you that this will not be on the menu at Mike's and my wedding. This may be the new answer to, "What's grosser than gross?"

world wide WHATEVER

So I'm sitting in Last Drop, enjoying an iced mocha and reading from The World Wide Web and Contemporary Cultural Theory when this guy comes up to me and asks, "Is that a textbook?" I reply, "Yes." He then says, "Do you know what the letter 'W' means in Hebrew?" Me: "Um, no." Him: "It's the number 6. Think about that. Have a good day." Yes, the web is the mark of the beast. I sometimes hate that I have to interact with people...
