'Don't Want to Sleep but Should' Playlist
One cycle, and one cycle only. Yeah Yeah Yeahs. “Gold Lion.” Mountain Goats. “Going to Georgia.” No links; go find em your own self. Then hit ctrl+T, find a college ex’s old blog and read that until you need a cigarette. You’ll thank me in the morning.
Chart your progress. Place it on the refrigerator where you can see it often.

I won’t apologize. I fuckin hate the FB.
I’m no longer trying to understand the cupcake windmill thing, let alone broker a peace deal. I didn’t know what I was getting into. All I know is I am getting out.
Another Front in the Cupcake - Windmill War
Callmeicebox spun me in circles with a blindfold on and then pushed me over here. Cupcakes are for bathers. Windmills for shower-ers.

Without having gone to the bar (I will go later today), I have some thoughts. leoncrawl: Specifically, the part where they say that the food they’ll be serving will be, “Comfort food; no pretense, just good home style cooking.” Also: “Straightforward appetizers.” In this I hear a very grating note of superiority, since the idea is basically: “straightforward and comfortable things are good and...
katiebakes: Anyway this was like the only version I could find on the web that hadn’t been taken down by NBC (shaking fist) so as a result I think some YouTube creeper has inserted himself into the video. But you get the point. Also my sound isn’t working so hopefully the song is actually in there and everything because, you know, that was the point of this post and Fek isn’t...

I'm Sick of This Brave New World
Today is my first day of unemployment. I will take a jog and clean the apartment. I will also buy an As-Seen-on-TV “Iron Gym” pull-up bar, because my NYSC membership expired the day I left my former employer and I Love Pull-Ups So Much. At work, one puts in place a series of mental structures designed to help deal with the various personalities and contingencies that arise. These...

The developers have completed the bulk of the work on the aluminum facade to the building next to my apartment, so now the scaffolding that had extended about ten feet onto the sidewalk is no longer there. This is mostly good, because the scaffolding was a little bit uglier than the facade, and now pedestrians have much freer reign over the sidewalk. However, there are unintended consequences. ...

Me And Bukowski: The Finish Line By Pamela... →
Maybe this has something to do with it? A Modest Mouse tie-in would clear things up a little, maybe. In the Bukowski biopic Born Into This, there’s a scene where Charles has started dating Pam but she has left for a while. He’s talking with the documentarians and he hears a sound at the front door. He looks out the windows and I think even stands on a chair, all the while saying...

I’m confused about the status of cupcakes on the Internet. How prevalent is this? Honestly is this some kind of official thing. What am I missing here. katiebakes: Corporate dollars have spectacular reach in this town—few visitors to the twee-hip Sugar Sweet Sunshine bakery on the Lower East Side, for example, would guess that 70 percent of its business comes from accounts like Goldman...

Last Tango in Paris
It’s a good movie, so far. First part: Whoa, cute lady I guess, Brando’s crazy, uh oh trenchcoat sex. Consensual I think, but will they fall out the window? That was quick. Whoops a naked lady part, Brando’s not stoked, and, Halls cough drop commercial. Second part: We learn more about cute lady. The soundtrack is a great humorous counterpoint to the scary imagery. Brando looks...
Today Involved My Pants
For months now, I’ve been wearing the same pair of pants for five work days in a row, because they don’t seem to get smelly and I like to think no one notices. If that’s already breaking some kind of rule, don’t worry, there’s more. The week beginning on Feb. 9 was “ripped khakis” week, which is to say the week I wear my khakis that have a just-noticeable...

keyholez: I stumbled across this today. It is only eight pages long; read it all. Pieces: In all major economies in the world, the production system is largely self-financing. Many empirical studies have shown that in these economies over 80% of the funding of production by established firms is internally generated. It relies on the retained earnings of these firms. This seems innocuous...

John: here is the first story i sent to mcsweeney's:
