my mom is adorable

Nov. 29th, 2010 | 05:33 pm

My mom just was just telling me about how my 13-year-old cousin wants a "smiley shirt" for Christmas, saying that it was cute. She then showed me a picture of the shirt.

Me: Oh, that's a Watchmen shirt.
Ma: What?
Me: You know, that movie? And it was based on a comic book.
Ma: This face, with the arrow?
Me: Mom, that's blood.
Ma: Oh! ...well, that's sad. I thought it was pointing up, like, "I'm the happy person!"
Me: No, like, in the comic the guy who's a really horrible person wears it all the time, and he gets killed at the beginning, and that's his blood.
Ma: Oh...I guess that does look more like blood. Well, I'm not getting him that.

there has been much throwing about of brains

Sep. 29th, 2010 | 08:42 am

a) The nice thing about writing a paper about Rosencrantz and Guildenstern (besides the mere fact that it's Rosencrantz and Guildenstern) is that their names are so goddamn long and take up a lotta space. I bet I'm filling up a whole page of just Rosencrantz and Guildenstern and Rosencrantz and Guildenstern and Rosencrantz and Guildenstern.

b) The shit thing about watching an awesome new show like Terriers (Wednesdays at 10/9 central on FX!) is that no one else is watching and it's totally going to get cancelled. UNLESS I CONVINCE PEOPLE TO WATCH IT!!!!! :D? I don't want to have to mail puppies to Rupert Murdoch. For one thing, postage. For another, (relative) apathy.

And finally: puppies :(

c) My current Pandora station is built on Thin Lizzy, Joan Jett, and Buzzcocks. Perfecto.

wakka wakkaCollapse )

EGREGIOUS

I got so caught up in the Mad Menning and VMAing (for whatever reason) that I somehow forgot that season 4.5 of The Venture Bros. premiered tonight! I have no money, so watching it live is all I have to offer as a fan, and I failed. Sorry, JPubs. Doc Hammer, I should have preemptively apologized to you three and a half years ago when I saw you walking down the street in Chelsea the only time I've been to New York (and I can categorically say that you were a more exciting sighting than Pierce Brosnon, because I saw him a block later). Yay for DVR!

I'm not procrastinating, I'm just drawing out the cliffhanger: will Sir Gawain magically keep his head attached post axe blow or what???

GODDAMN

I can't get the twitter name "mtraptor" because the Montana Raptor Institute for Research and Education got it to make one tweet for their two followers in November of 2008.

I wonder if they're responsible for the "mtraptor" youtube account that has absolutely no activity? Stop ruining my life, science!

m. treptow => m. t. raptor. It's my birthright, obviously.

However, I did just make a personal (i.e. non game show related) tumblr under the name of sanders mtraptor! I win this round.
Who has a tumblr? Let me follow you, I'm following like one person.

As for a twitter name, here are some variations on my proper name I guess:

-mtraptors
-raptagonizer (bonus affiliation with the band)
-MTraptagonizer (too long, I think)
-actualmtraptor
-actuallymtraptor
-emptyraptor (jk, I'm just hungry rn)
-mteeraptor

Thoughts? I could have made a poll since I still have a paid account. Too lazy.

Now off to maybe do some homework, but actually probably play Super Mario World while half-watching the Star Wars prequels on Spike. Obi Wan Kenobi, you're the best. Straight up diving out a bajillion story window after a robot, goddamn. Too bad your padawan is such a bitch.

quickly quickly, we got lo batt

looky looky, I finally got Cable to admit we'd never rerecord the vocals and he should just let me put this on your tubes! watch it, I want hits. hit me like a hooker hitting Don Draper.

things: I went with Brendan on a 24 hour road trip to visit z in Madison. we got there and drank for about 9 hours straight and learned booze related terms in Hindi and Punjabi. then in the morning we ate breakist and bought LPs from a dude's front lawn and drove home singing along to the West Side Story soundtrack. marvelous times.

I want to see Inception again. But I also want to see The Kids Are Alright. And most of all, I want to see Step Up 3D before the 3D runs out. :/ moobies

HEY WORLD.

Jul. 11th, 2010 | 11:14 pm

I made this icon today an it's my new favorite thing.

Things: I've been offered the privilege of working for minimum wage at nearby a gas station on weekdays from 6-12 am. Yay. But really, the prospect of getting a job (in this economy, amirite?) without having to search for it is really appealing. If it doesn't interfere with my Pandarosa internship, I might go for it.

Also, I've recently been told something in confidence that directly and negatively affects somebody who is way more important to me than the person who told me the secret. Naturally, this is causing me a lot of distress.

And to add to the fun, those two news items are interconnected! Callooh Callay!

But on the other hand, things with my lady are going swimmingly. Non-sarcastic Callooh Callay!!

Currently sitting on a couch in my lounge pants and eating marshmallows.

This internship is pretty awesome 8)

Guess what else is awesome? The Prisoner! I got the dvds from the library and I've watched first two episodes so far (even though there are apparently like five different orders to watch the episodes in) and it's like the perfect British 60's mix of silly and chilling.



My favorite part is at 0:33 when he stops to get a parking stub, and then just drives under the barrier in his lowrider without waiting for it to go up. YEAAAAAAAAAAAAH 8)

as promisèd

copy o' the description:
"I thought I'd upload a new video to celebrate my uke's and my one year anniversary. I'm sorry I said that stuff about you, baby. We've had some times, all right.

song belongs to the Gerbils! listen to it on their excellent album, Are You Sleepy?

TOOLS:
Kamoa concert uke (low G)
Magnus Jewel chord organ
frog & cricket guiros
Zoom H2 , garageband, and imovie

...voice box."

Ozzie just got a minty chew toy, hopefully it will serve as the stank mitigator of our dreams.

are you the fattest thin man in the world?

Jun. 4th, 2010 | 06:03 pm

This is gonna be a swift post, I MEAN IT THIS TIME, because I need to be at The Zone Comics in 27 minutes to start my "internship" there. Basically this means that they have shows there on Fridays and I'm going to run the soundboard. Why does this count as an internship? Because even though my program requires an internship, they don't have any relationships or contacts with relevant businesses. Cable's dad does but he is completely unhelpful, so I had to make shit happen myself. TO WHIT:

: This summer I'm interning at a comic shop (but not doing anything comicsy) and a record label (that is mostly a guy). Pas mal.

I'm pretty much done recording a cover of this song:

on ukulele and my new chord organ (thanks, Uncle John's Flea Market) but I'm not posting it until probably tomorrow because I need a third opinion about some percussiveness.

ok o kok ok now hurrying now

ISSYEWS:

-YO DELL, YOU SHOULD MAYBE THINK ABOUT UPDATING YOUR VIDEO CARD DRIVERS MORE THAN ONCE A YEAR, HAVE YOU HEARD THIS THING ABOUT TECHNOLOGY MOVING VERY QUICKLY? JUST FOR YOUR EDIFUCKATION.

similarly:
-PREMIERE PRO WHY YOU GOTTA PUT A PINK OVERLAY OVER ALL MY VIDEOS? IS IT BECAUSE I GOT YOU THROUGH PIRACY? OR BECAUSE DELL DOESN'T UPDATE THEIR VIDEO CARDS? IDK BUT PLEASE STOP H8ING ME!

-Robin Hood looks dumb as hell but I want to see Kevin Durand towering over people...what do I do??

-Home recording: not super convenient when other people are alive in your home

DON'T YOU SPIN WEBS OF LIES WITH ME, MISSY

Apr. 14th, 2010 | 11:55 pm
mood: quixoticquixotic

Ughhhhhh so I have a video project due @ 8 am tomorrow (damn you, Mr [Cable's dad]) that I am very near literally starting from scratch right now (damn you, me). And the kicker is that it's not like I wasn't doing anything the whole time it was assigned! I recorded a bunch of sound effects that ended up being mainly useless, and I thought I wanted to sample this one song so I was messing with that for a while until I realized it didn't work at all, and suddenly it is now. I mean, it is now now, not that it's working now. It being the current time, not the sample? It the sample is definitely not working now. We use Sonar 8, Premiere Pro and Audition at school but I ain't got none a those so I'm attempting to jerry-rig something with Garageband and Audacity. But I am sooooo nottttttt interestedddddd in what I have so far, ugh ugh ugh.

LOOKS LIKE IT'S GONNA BE A...



~SARCASTIC EMBED~

13 1/2 hours from now is gonna be my salad days. Not the green in judgment part, but the part where I pass out into a delicious bed of lettuce.

brb adjusting to the knowledge that I can still be this much of a self-sabotaging schmuck

ETA: FUUUUUU NOW GARAGEBAND IS FREEZING CONSTANTLY, YOOOO GARAGEBAND WHY WON'T YOU LET ME BE MEDIOCRE

I WONDER WHAT THE ETYMOLOGY OF MEDIOCRE IS BECAUSE IT'S A DISTRACTION

oh nvm I fixed Garageband! I'm a genius, but only at facilitating mediocrity. THE SAGA CONTINUES :(

ETA A FEW HEURES LATER: well, that was temporary. GB hates me. Also, I'm apparently still using GB 3. I swear I got iLife 09 when I upgraded to Leopard last year, so what gives? Did I just not install it? That seems like something I would...not do. I have entered the familiar zen state of "resigned to failure but too pillsy to sleep". Aaaaaaand there go the birds.

back to my youthful pasttime of forming crackpot theories

Mar. 31st, 2010 | 11:56 pm

bahhhhh I'm super tired and have class at eight tomorrow and the girl I like just texted me to come out to the bar (which I can do since I'm 21 now, which I keep forgetting!!). Why now of all nows??

The News:

-I totally dominated my Shakespeare midterm, and as a bonus was on time for it

-it was finally springlike again today so I took Ozbald to the dog park and the little fucker behaved himself for once

-bah bah bah this day contains too many deets

-I and Cable are dusting off one of our many erstwhile monikers for the "Peace Gathering" we're playing at. Which one? I shall preserve the mystery for now!


all crowds should be this excited to see Men Without Hats.
