Why, oh why?

Why must I love "Easy Lover" by Phillip Bailey and Phill Collins? It's so unbelievably catchy and dancable. There are a couple ladies in the house who know EXACTLY what I'm talking about.

Sorry, I have to go dance now.

Holy Tuesday!

Geez...busy, busy, busy. Work, work, work. Been out of town the last two weekends - weddings galore. So much fun. Interpol on Sunday. DEFINITELY better than at St. Andy's, since I was able to breath and wasn't bathed in sweat. Still shopping around for lendors. It sucks, it's a lot of work, but in the end it's all worth it, right? Just ask Sarah Bruce, who bought her house in record time.

I don't even want to get started on how good "Lost" is...just read the message many theories (Walt: "Don't push the button, the button is bad", the QUARENTINE sign on the INSIDE of the hatch, the last name of the person who died in Jack's wife's car accident: Rutheford, as in Shannon's last name, the numbers on Desmond's injection bottles). And big props to our group for guessing that Desmond was that stationary bike-riding, shake-slurping dude in the Hatch.

You want to know what is the most disgusting thing in the world right now? Logging an amputation. I've logged footage of brain surgery, of third-degree burns, but this shit is NASTY. I don't know if I'll be eating lunch today. Thank god Bill told me how to turn the color down - it does help. Not so much sicking red color.

Well, I'm off now...hopefully there will be another post in the next week, or two.

Here's what we've learned:

With the season premiere of "Lost" fast approaching, some eerie, unanswered questions remain. Here's what I want to know:

-How did Locke end up in his wheelchair?
-What is making the hatch glow?
-What exactly did Locke see that was so 'beautiful?' Was it a real monster or the security system?
-Why is Kate's mother so afraid of her?
-Where exactly DID Jack's father go to (remember, his coffin was empty)?
-Is the Black Rock a pirate ship? Are the "others" decendents from pirates?
-Will we see anything strange happen to Claire's baby (remember: there is still something evil about the child, per the psychic's discovery)?

Any more burning questions you need to have answered? Seriously, I came across some clips from the season premiere thanks to The Smerigan, and I can't wait! For all that are interested, we're having a pizza party next Wednesday - Lost/Invasion Sci-Fi Pizza Party at Maplehizzle!

'Toot toot' - oops, there goes my own horn.

Okay, I don't like to brag. Quite frankly, I'm mediocre in a number of different things, like cooking and roller hockey. But when I hear someone take a golden opportunity and make it into a goopy mess, when I know I can do it better, it makes me crazy! Spike Lee is currently in pre-production on his newest movie "The Inside Man" starring Denzel Washington, Jodie Foster and Clive Owen. Stellar cast, right? Some kid, and I mean kid, is producing a podcast that chronicles the making of "The Inside Man." In the first episode, Hughey Newman gets a sit-down, one-on-one interview with one of the brightest break-out film directors of the 1990s...and he goes no where. "Can you be passionate about making movies and still be interested in sports?" Are you kidding me? After Mr. Lee goes on about filmmaking being a continuous learning process for about ten minutes - "so, have you accomplished all of your goals?" "Did you learn everything you know on your own or did you have people to guide you?" He already said he went to two different universities to study film!!! "You said making a film takes about a year of your life. How far are you in right now?" HE'S IN PRE-PRODUCTION! YOU KNOW HE'S IN PRE-PRODUCTION! 'PRE' TYPICALLY MEANS BEFORE - HE'S AT THE BEGINNING, YOU DOUCHE! And before the interview, he gives a detailed description of WHAT SPIKE LEE IS WEARING. "Blue and red striped shirt, he's holding a cell phone, he has a gold ring on his left hand, I see a Nike swoosh..." Did you hear that? I think Russ did - my brain just exploded. Spike Lee does tell some interesting stories, but Hughey is truly asking the wrong questions. Your subject can be fasinating, but if you can't have an interesting conversation, your subject will be as interesting as a doorknob.

You are sitting face to face with Spike Lee...and I'm not. That's it. I'm starting my own podcast. If this guy can talk to Spike Lee, then I'm going to the moon.

So fresh, so clean clean

Ahhhhhhh....Labor Day. A day without labor of any kind; a weekend without labor of any kind for that matter. I truly feel refreshed and ready to kick this week's ass. Lots of barbaques, pool, euchure, free concerts, amazing Indian food, Boogie Fever, Holy Fire, ever.

Lots o' weddings this month, but this weekend I get to let me inner dork really shine - Rennesaince Festival.

Oh yeah, AND I'm going to see Green Day. On September 11th. This will be monumental.

Later, taters!

Labor Day Weekend, D-troit style

Well, due to the price of gas (keeps on rising...sing it, Bloc Party fans!) and that I may be house-sitting to make some extra bucks, I'll be residing in Detroit this weekend. And I most certainly will not be bored. Holy Fire, Loretta Lucas, Last Tourist, SLOOOAAAAAAAAN, and a Smerigan pool party will most certainly keep me feeling fresh and exhausted. Hmmmmm, love those three day weekends!

Okay, back to work...
