Gift Idea Part III

If someone could be so kind as to send me a copy of Louder Than Bombs on vinyl, cassette or CD, that would be super wizard mind fuck sweet. Oh, I'll take a Starbucks gift card too so that I can get some Green Tea Lattes. Then I'll have all the fixins to make more minimalist/devoid of emotion/sarcastic/minimalist/evangelical/totally serious/minimalist (f)art like I did in two thousand and seven...or was it eight. I dunno cuz I try it all ya know. Like Jo, the unwed mother. Now don't you go saying you didn't get any gift ideas from me.

Midwest Hell Fest set for May 13 & 14, Kimberly, WI

Guess where we'll be on May 13th and 14th? Kimberly, Wisconsin, that's where. Weird, right? Well no, not really; not when it's for something called Hell Fest that is both Midwestern and Punk.  And a poster with BULLET BELTS~!, come on, we really have no choice. No, srsly, look at this line-up. As my old roommate from college would say, fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck...

The event is put together by Profane Existence, Wisconsin Pyrate Punx (?) and Hell On Earth Records. There are MySpace and Facebook pages and websites and whatnot that you can look up on your own. You can buy tix already through PayPal too.  So get on it!

Dear World, That Smart Phone Makes You Look Dumb

I watched Mark Zuckerberg on 60 Minutes on Sunday. He wants the whole world to be Facebook. Think about that.  Three days before that I was sitting at the bar with two very fine folks that told me about something I missed out on because I wasn’t on Facebook. One of them said to me, “It’s time to give in or get left behind.” As I write this, approximately 50% of the world just status updated something about eating a good bagel or being sick of homework. I tell ya, Facebook is the Phillip Morris of the internets.  The gf told me that The Situation made 3 mil this year. The Situation. And people are surely disillusioned if they think Jay-Z, Kanye or Eminem made the best record in 2010. On top of that, my doctor—whose kind of hot (no homo)—got up close and personal with my privates yesterday. Of course it’s a million below zero outside, so my penis looked like a raisin on coke. Diablo Cody was on the Chelsea Lately panel, which reminded me that I’m not famous because I never left the Midwest. And that’s total bullshit because I’m a really good writer and an even better actor. Like, the fuckin’ best.

No srsly, can everyone please shut off their Twitter mobile updates. It’s really harshing my gig when we hang out.


Reality TV Killed the Video Star

Forgive the late slip but I just got around to reading this month-old article someone sent me on the evolution of MTV hipters (Link.  Warning: its on that whole annoying flip-a-page-every-paragraph-equals-more-hits/time-on-our-add ridden-website layout tip.)

Now, I can excuse the absence of Kurt Loder, as he was technically not a VJ, but the exclusion of Dave Kendall is a grave oversight.  Srsly now, ahhhh 120 Minutes, anyone?  OG motherfuckin' hipster VJ, bitches!

And Jim Shearer, like it or not, should be on the list, as he was the one playing videos on Subterranean (MTV2's 120 Minutes replacement) during the whole moppy hair emo explosion that drove the final nail in the hardcore coffin during the early '00s.  (PS-I will admit to liking this video/song when it first came out.  I trust you won't tell anyone.)

Oh, but what really bothers me most is not the article with it's shitty layout and omissions (lists are just a matter of opinion) but rather that yet again we are reminded...and I know it's been said ONE MILLION TIMES...that MTV does not play videos anymore!

I know everyone of us used to bitch about it when we had it ("They always show the same videos.") and as much as we secretly (or not so secretly) love the Jersey Shore, goddammit, would it be great to have some fucking music videos back in our lives.

There, now it's been said one million and one times.

Fuck it.

(Speaking of fucking it, did Kennedy ever end up losing her virginity?)
