First things first, a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY to our very own Edward Stanley!

Math is fun!

So as I'm leaving class this morning, I hear three kids talking about what prescription type drugs they're about to be doing that afternoon. How familiar they were with pharmeceutical names I normally only hear on commercials or in the doctor's office really creeped me out. The world kinda scares me sometimes these days.

The language is a little rough, but the Ozma love is very apparent.

A great review of The Transporter can be found here. I hope all of you will be seeing it tonight as I hope to be doing.

I'm still waiting for someone to drop me a line about the Halloween ideas.

"I would, however, like to communicate something very important to those readers who do creative work of any kind, and I use creative in a sense so broad that it includes the production of a sandwich. You do need a lawyer, and you don't know sh*t about contracts. I know you might think you do, because you're so f*cking smart and everything. People who write contracts are operating on a level that you can't even imagine, and just because you know all the words they're using doesn't mean you understand their ramifications when they're all put a certain way. These people make traps out of words, not just metaphorical traps but real-ass, Goddamned traps that can cinch around you and steal your work and make you never want to write another word so long as you draw breath." - Tycho @ Penny Arcade

Sometimes it seems like this rain is never going to stop... but then again, sometimes rain can be nice. Especially at night when it's quiet. But not so much when you're having to walk in it to get to class.

A great review of the upcoming Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones DVD.

Listening to @ this second: "Die, Die My Darling" by Metallica (I can't stop listening to it for some reason.)

Listening to @ this second: "Between You and Me" by The Ataris
"I'm happy for you, I'm sure that he really loves you, But it breaks my heart to know I can't hold you.. It's just sad to think I'll never get the chance to say you're mine.. But everytime you hear this song you'll know you made a mark on my heart, and my mind.."

"And if I tell you all the truth, would you promise not to cry? I prefer it back inside, It's nothing that you did or said, I'm just kinda scared I just heard life is a fatal disease" - Nuno, "Swollen Princess"

You kids may have noticed the new front page picture. You may have also noticed that it's the greatest thing ever! In case you don't know what's going on, it shows me and Matt Pott (Hip Today's first Australian fan) hijacking Yoshi from the Mario Bros. Matt's also responsible for the art in said picture. It's pretty awesome.

If anyone wants to get me this so I can have yet another coat to help me look like Brodie, please feel free.

Speaking of looking like people, has anyone got any costume ideas for Halloween yet? Drop me a line and let me know if you know what you're going as or if you've got any ideas for what I should go as.

I think this comic (by James Kochalka) is how a lot of conversations with me generally seem to other people...

James Kochalka's genius is infuriating...
You should go to his website.

Listening to @ this second: "Love of My Life" a Queen song being covered by Extreme

Check out the NEW pictures in the gallery: Florida Part 3!
(I'll warn you though, there's no commentary on any of the pictures this time. I just didn't feel like any of them really needed it, as they are all pretty self-explanatory. More pictures coming soon!)

It's funny how you can wake up thinking things in your life are going along a certain path only to have things happen by the end of the day that show you that you're not on that path at all. Or if you are on that path, it hasn't taken you to where you thought it would. But what do I know, I'm too dense to tell when a girl who's standing right next to me is trying to pick me up when it's obvious to everyone else in the immediate vacinity. Even her sister that's had one.. or seven too many. Does this mean I should start drinking too?

ROUND 2 of the "Name Our Band" poll is up and running again, so please go vote and be a part of rock history by helping name what will surely become one of the biggest bands ever. And if you leave a comment, please leave your name along with it.

Not only is this crazy, but it further fuels my fear and hatred of birds.

Just a heads up for you kids, Edward's birthday is Friday.
