you may never eat sausage again 

ah boys and their masturbation experiments. if you enjoy chuck palahniuk (and i don't just mean if you've seen fight club), if you haven't eaten anytime recently, and if you've already gone to the bathroom... then feel free to read guts, mr. up-chuck's controversial new short story, posted in its entirety on nghia's other site.



the catchy as herpes hip-pop edition:

gorillaz ::feel good, inc.::
from the new album demon days

this song is goodness. and it's stuck in my head right now. i saw gorillaz play in scotland once... although i didn't actually see them because they carried through on the whole cartoon band concept and played behind a screen running with images of their animated alter-egos. which was kinda cool, but mostly lame. sounded good though. if you don't already know, gorillaz iz damon albarn (of blur), miho hatori (of cibo mato), dangermouse (of the grey album mashup) who replaces dan the automator, and MF Doom and other rappers who replace del tha funky homosapien. in other words, most of the zombie bizness is gone this time. you might have heard this song on the new ipod commercial unless of course you've been living under a rock and/or you're nick or nate.

fannypack ::seven one eight::
from the new album see you next tuesday

yo brooklyn, yo bronx! i love this song. and it's stuck in my head riiiight... now. fannypack are 3 jennys from the block just barely out of high school. oh hi nick, when did you get here? they were put together and hipster-ified by nyc DJ's matt goias and fancy (yes, fancy) who take teeny bopper hip hop (teeny hopper) and turn it into rhein-gold. on their last album, they used a yeah yeah yeah's sample in things and managed to get a video on MTV for cameltoe including lyrics like "is your crotch hungry girl? cause it's eating your pants..." this is the only song i've heard off their new one so far. but i rike their bass. their beat is correct. and clearly, they still love them some 'gina jokes.

Labels: ,


yeah, yeah, yeah, nick and jessica are getting a divorce 

that's old gossip even if they're not admitting it yet. but this, this is real news... graham reads stereogum?

quick meals 

anyone got any quick, tasty meals they want to share?
i'm looking for anything a freelance slacker could prepare for lunch/dinner in 30mins (ideally less).

here's one of my current favorites. mmmhmmm.

salt and pepper a 6oz cod fillet. sautee for 30-45 secs each side. turn the heat to low. cover with tarragon, a handful of halved cherry tomatoes and a handful of halved olives. drizzle with olive oil. cover the pan and cook for 5 mins or until the fish is cooked through. don't overcook it. i eat it with cous cous cos it soaks up the fish/olive/tomato juices. takes 10 mins from fridge to plate.


the top gun of crazytown 

so much
to be disturbed by,
so little time.

my shit turned green 

this post is just a reminder, for people like me, who completely forget half of the shit they plan to do just moments after deciding to do it.

in accordance with matt's simple instructions last month, i finally (remembered and) made the energy switch to coned's solutions green power.

if you haven't already, click here to enroll. it takes less than a minute and all you need is an old bill handy for account numbers and such.

it only costs about a half cent more per kwh and apparently there's some sort of $25 rebate after 3 months and a tax waiver on the delivery portion (?) of your bill. i'm not sure what that means, but i like to think of it as getting a credit card that earns airline miles. except in this case, you accumulate karma points out the ass. which really helps for people like me, who also tend to hand a taxi driver a $20 thinking it's a $1. trust me.


You are weak. It is useless to resist. 

"Star Wars" I know, it hurts to even see it printed again. It's everywhere. So I'll keep it short.

Nick and I are going to see it tomorrow (Saturday) afternoon. I'll post exactly what time later on, so you can buy your ticket and join if you want. But at least the reviews are good this time.

Also, you can challenge Darth Vader here. Think of any object in your mind (he doesn't do dirty. I already tried), and he'll guess what it is. It's pretty much 20 questions.

Plus, an added perk (for me anyway). The new Fantastic Four trailer will be attached. I've already seen it, of course. It still only looks "okay." Oh well. They can't all be Spider-Man and X-Men.

Okay, enough geekness for one post. Or month. Or year.

now if they could just reduce the temperature by 10,000 

info via torr:

"The lineup of the fourth-annual Austin City Limits Music Festival, set for Sept. 23-25 in Austin, Texas' Zilker Park has been confirmed. Among the more than 130 bands confirmed for the festival's eight stages are Coldplay, Oasis, Jet, Kasabian, Franz Ferdinand, Keane, Doves, Death Cab for Cutie, The Bravery, The Arcade Fire, and Wilco.

The full list of bands will be announced tomorrow (Thurs.) The ACL festival is named for the PBS mainstay Austin City Limits. The festival began in 2002, and attendance grew to more than 70,000 per day in 2004.

In response, producers announced this year that they would reduce capacity by 10,000 daily to make for a better fan experience. The capacity reduction will affect ticket prices, but three-day passes started out at $85 on April 15 will still top out at $95 once the bands are announced. "Our ticket sales are ahead of schedule," Jones says. "Before we released band one, we sold 12,000-13,000 three-day passes. I expect when the bands get released, this sucker will sell out within a week."
