Just heard someone call someone else a "cock basket", and I quite literally cannot stop laughing. This is twitter right?

Y'know at some point I should really start blogging again.

I have a sore throat. I'd weep but it would only hurt more.

I have become, over the course of the last year or so, increasingly suspicious that I might have strong utilitarian leanings. A major problem with this is that I don't know enough about philosophy to react to this information.

Remember when I was basically Taoist? Good times.

One of the -vantages (ad- or disad- I will leave to others to decide) of not being all that tuned in to the mainstream (or really any stream for that matter) is that I tend not to get sick of the viral stuff that other people get sick of. Especially songs. So I can listen to "Call me Maybe" or "Never gonna give you up" without wanting to destroy the universe.

An offshoot of this phenomenon is that I am pretty obsessed with gameplay videos of dance games. Seriously obsessed. Lately, they help get me through the hard times. Also, I think I may be a Rhianna fan.

Humor is funny when you think about it.

For instance: This commercial makes me really happy. I don't particularly laugh at it. It makes me chuckle, but we're not talking guffaws here. It just makes me happy. That this joke happened, and I was there to see it. Well done advertising company. The rest of this campaign is hit or miss, but this one is gold.

Sometimes I [X] a thing, where [X] is like some kind of verb, y'know? Like "realize", or "read", or "encounter". That sort of sentiment. And I think to myself, "There are two options here."

Option 1 is I can devote the entire rest of my life - every fiber of my being - to that thing. Learning/Practicing/Knowing/Mastering/Understanding (take your pick) that thing.

Option 2 is I can ignore that thing. Try my damndest never to think about it again.

There's never an Option 3.

This actually happens a lot actually. Like a lot alot.

It prolly isn't that healthy.

Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Just watched the 2003 remake for some reason or another. But occurred to me just now is that it technically passes the Bechdel test. Hooray for progressivism or whatever.

It's also occurred to me that the movie is out-and-out hypothesizing that any amount of gross-out imagery can be counteracted by unrestrained indulgence of the male gaze. So on the one hand I'm all, "Jessica Biel sexxxxxy. No room in brain for otherrrrrr." But on the other hand I'm like, "Is it actually possible for people to live in these conditions for long? We're talking actual virulent infections and crap. I mean yeah, third world, terrible stuff, I'm with you, but there is pinkish-red goop coming out of the fucking faucet."

Rargh. This kind of crap is why I ain't huge on slasher flicks.

I just watched Ender's Game, and now that I'm toast I can't ever go back to being just bread again. Maybe if I scrape off most of the black stuff, my soul will still be edible.

That was really morbid. And I knew it would be bad from the trailer alone.

Rather randomly a nebulous image of someone smoking a cigarette and yelling "Bingo!" jumped into my head as I was walking into the library this morning. You probably know this moment, where you realize you've remembered a shot or scene or line from a movie and can't place it for the life of you.

Well I placed it baby! Took like half an hour of staring into the middle distance, worrying at the image in my brain like a terrier at a dead rat until ...

"Biiiiingooooo!"

It's small triumphs like this that turn into good days.

Me: Did you just switch from Star Wars1 to NCIS: Los Angeles???

Her: Yes I did.

Me: But you don't even like NCIS: Los Angeles.

Her: But I've seen Star Wars like a million times.

Me: But you don't even like NCIS: Los Angeles.

Her: I do today.

Promise a real entry's on the way. Still mulling it over.

Is it me, or does present day Leelee Sobieski look and sound just like a mid-nineties Helen Hunt?

S'weird.

First off, I'm a big fan of the first two "Terminator" films. All sorts of fun packed into two enduring cult classics (if I'm not misapplying the term).

That said, I would not have previously thought it was possible to come up with an A.I. stupider than Skynet, but the guys who made "Oblivion" proved how limited my imagination can be.

Soooooooooo stupid.

Also? At some point, I will begin actually updating this journal again. I have this feeling.

And they say, "You can't wrestle the dark forces of evil and travel the river Styx and thrust the sword of everlasting life through the heart of the necromancer." Well maybe I can't do it today, but I can take baby steps. And just for today I could stretch. And keep it loose.
