Self-Portrait 3

(no subject)

-- That over yonder on your left? That's me. Don't get used to it, it'll go away eventually. You'll get it when I take it down.

-- Thought about something tonight: Evanescence is music for dickhead goth kids got up in poncey outfits. Not that Evanescence is bad, mind you, and not that listening to them makes you a dickhead goth kid got up in a poncey outfit. I actually kinda like them myself, and I also have nothing against either dickhead goth kids or getting up in poncey outfits. Also, their singer is kinda teh hot. But look at her, and the outfits she wears. Look at her makeup. Listen to their music and their lyrics. They're blatantly aiming their entire schtick at dickhead goth kids got up in poncey outfits. And it seems to be working for them, as dickhead goth kids got up in poncey outfits seem to be an untapped market. Also, I must admit that dickhead goth kids got up in poncey outfits is a very fun phrase to use. It's got zip to it. Or maybe that's just the sleepy talking.

-- 100.5 plays A LOT of clips from Beaner & Ken when they've got the machines programmed and no DJ in the studio at night and they're doing the whole "commercial free music" things. I guess they mean commercial free except for commercials for our morning show. I have come to dread these clips, as Beaner & Ken are not funny. Not only are they not funny, but they almost certainly suck, and may in fact suck goat balls, in addition to the aforementioned just plain "suck".

--'Runaway Train' is actually a pretty good little song. It's catchy, it's angsty enough to be all "alternative", it's got a hooky little guitar riff in it. This is the first time I've heard it in years. I'd forgotten how much I absolutely despise it. I remember the six or so months when it was really popular on the MTV and the college radio, and those six months just happen to be right in the thick of , hands down, the worst fucking year of my entire life. I can't help but think about what was going on then when I hear that song. Which is good; it helps put things in a much better perspective. If I made it through that shit, I can make it through anything.

Man, this day just keeps on getting better. I almost don't want to go to bed.
