Oh Hello Here Is a Sack Full of Words
I just poured myself some coffee after having turned off the burner, so it was lukewarm. There was not much coffee left so it almost failed to engulf the brown-sugar cube sitting at the bottom. This turned out okay, though, because I poured some milk over it all and now I’m sipping on a highly sweet lukewarm cocktail not unlike a regular cup of coffee. I am still listening to “Modern...
Several people have asked me what I think about Hipster Runoff, specifically his...– Nick Sylvester. “RE HIPSTER RUNOFF’S ANIMAL COLLECTIVE POST.” RIFF MARKET.
something i've always liked
hartman: Plain as an old-fashioned synonym for ugly (“She’s terribly plain!”). I don’t even get the sense that it was being used euphemistically, either — which reinforces a weird idea I have of an Olden Times where everything was more or less pleasant, or at least inert. So plain was a genuine insult in those days because the Austen-era attractiveness scale didn’t go below “neutral”. Like,...

leoncrawl: It’s just amazing to me that Fiona Apple is a real girl. Haha.
I just rediscovered the value of doing nothing besides listening to music on a laptop while looking at pictures of the performers on Google Images and sometimes reading about them on Wikipedia. The appeal is in its simplicity and cohesion. Reading news articles or looking for things to Tumbl about detracts from the pleasure of just hearin’ some tunes. It now occurs to me that even what...

How to Spend Your Sunday
If you’re stuck, just write something down. Then, take out the bad parts and add good parts instead. If you do this enough times, you will have something pretty good when you’re done.
Please, 'If U Seek Amy'
Here’s where Britney goes with the titular double-entendre in her new song (this is the main lyrical achievement of the entire chorus). Love me hate me, say what you want about me But all of the boys and all of the girls are begging to if you seek Amy. Love me hate me but can’t you see what I see? All of the boys and all of the girls are begging to if you seek Amy. “If you...
Who in Your Tumblr Ring Is Ahead in the Death...
Will: yeah, they had their moments
i wonder who's winning in the death pool now
all that smoking, he's gotta be way ahead
me: do you get some kind of handicap for having a kid first?
the "death alone" pool
Will: hm good question
me: the "gene pool exit" pool
but i mean
does it take you out of the death pool?
or does it move you out of the fun pool and into the real "homestretch to death" pool?
me: there are so many pools
Will: like one of those fancy resorts, but without the swim-up bars
‘Crawl: did you know britney has a new single called If You Seek Amy
‘Crawl: (say it fast!)
‘Crawl: (for lols)
me: i said it out loud
me: she's so ;-)
me: no it sounded like "if you seek amy"
me: don't worry
me: she should do a whole album of that
me: "i am sofa king we todd did"
‘Crawl: wait what's the last part
What’s that noise? Oh just 24 hour news cycle hum. Unplug the Internet and it goes away.

NOFX. “The Decline.” Look out below everything is coming apart at the seams. Haha for a minute I had the wrong song embedded. Lots of Tumblr mistakes today!

(via katiebakes) It’s always helpful to be able to cite Robert Johnson as an influence.

Two Things I Didn't Learn Until Recently
There are holes in both sinks in my apartment. They are not the drains. They are higher up and designed to catch overflow if the sink gets stopped up or if there is a leak in the faucet. At least that’s how it appears. I’m not sure if the hole in my kitchen sink drains anywhere but the place where I keep the floor cleaner, but I’ll check in the morning. Proscribe and prescribe...
Watching 'Sunset Boulevard'
derrinyet: fiatluxemburg: seedz: I don’t normally watch movies that were made in the good old days… Neither do I. Is this a big mistake or am I right that the past was silly. (The actual past, not The Past (which is to say, the future).) There is an awesome bit of the futurepast in Austin. Also, there are some good old movies, I think, but from other places? Sunset Boulevard does briefly...
I have lately been waking up, suddenly, with a weird metallic taste in my mouth. I most closely associate this sensation with the time I electrocuted myself in the shower. Does anyone else wake up feeling like they’ve been electrocuted?
More 'Sunset Blvd'
The ladies who are laughing on the phone at the party, as well as the kooky old lady, resemble Maude Lebowski. Also Joe Gillis vs. Jake Geddes.
‘That car better be back here by noon tomorrow or there’s gonna be...– Fake noir dialog, particularly threats, would be great fun to write.
Okay so that framing device (where at the beginning Danny DeVito tells you what happened) from L.A. Confidential was from Sunset Boulevard.
Watching 'Sunset Boulevard'
I don’t normally watch movies that were made in the good old days but who knows. Maybe I will wind up a huge William Holden or Jack Webb fan. I’ve heard of Cecil B. DeMille from “Tombstone Blues” by Bob Dylan.

Also, is it funny to end questions with periods. I like doing this but maybe it is just annoying.
This is a little weird, but whatever. I spent a lot of today sort of abstractly wanting a girlfriend. In the bar I felt like I was in one of the scenes in chick flicks where the main character’s biological clock is ticking and all she sees everywhere is tons of babies. Except all I was seeing everywhere was tons of ladies. Also I found myself noticing that Kurt Warner is very handsome. I...
Who knows whether this is a good idea.
