listy business

so, the other cat shit on my stuff again. tiresome, as i was already in an incredibly pissed off mood, but it sort of pushed me over the brink into calmness, because i can do literally NOTHING to control any of the things irrationally pissing me off today. my roommate is being incredibly nice about the whole thing. a feminist community debate is flaring up over the past few days; i've involved myself heavily which i don't usually do. but it's fun, it exercises the brain a little. this particular one started with an advertisement but is now about biodeterminism versus social conditioning...

the whole time i was 26, i thought i was 27, now that i am 27, i think i am 26. i can't answer the "how old are you" question without thinking about it first. weird.

watched buffy last night (in DIRECT opposition to my post yesterday in regards to TV); i was so happy to see an andrew-centric episode, but principal wood (heh heh) got the best line: "slowly... i may be concussed." Best. Come-on line. Ever. [Editor's Note: This is not to imply that I think concussed people are good people to come on to. In case anyone misunderstands my sense of humor and I can see how that statement might be offensive.]

to do list: dentist, bills (CAR PAYMENT), christmas present, clean room, gary's

i need to get someone to take a good picture of me for an icon... do i have any artistic photographery type friends???

new new monkees???

Now will it star the Monkees? Or will it star new Monkees?

Also of note is the blurb beneath it about Daniel Day Lewis starring in a new film. examorata should take note!

Oh, I read it indeed! =)

By the way, that new Monkees show is apparenlty partly the brain child of Josh "Elvis" Weinstein who was heavily involved at the very beginning of MST3K. He was replaced by TV's Frank!

Oh, it might still suck. Don't get me wrong. I just found it interesting.

If they made it with the original monkees, I hate to say it, but I believe the show would not be successful. :( So my guess is, a new set of boys.

But my question is, whill today's style be able to be as innocently goofy as the original show?

I seriously need to have a Monkees night!

New New Monkees?
God knows how much I absolutely ABHORRED the New Monkees. They were just too weird, gross, un-cute, and un-funny for me - nothing like the originals.

If they revive it, I'll watch and try to keep an open mind about it. I actually want to see something Monkee-related do well. I just hope its not a disgrace to the name.

I would love it if they got actors that look like the originals when they were young, set it in the 60s, and used the same characters.

Or -- here's an idea -- make the new show about actors playing the Monkees on the original TV show in the late 60s. The actors playing the band on TV would have lives like the band in the original episodes - romping around, chasing women and getting chased by women, etc. Whoa... then, the actors would be playing actors on TV, acting like a band!

I think I just blew my own mind with that one.

If this makes it to the screen, I'll try to have fans over to watch it. :)

And the "New Monkees" sucked. I was a RABID fan of the original and it didn't matter, I couldn't deny that the NM sucked. Period.

Have you seen the movie about the original 4 that they played on I think VH-1? I have it on tape. (Thanks to cheetahmaster.)

The Monkees? On VH-1?!
I dont think I've seen it. The only VH-1 Monkees thing I've ever seen was the 1 hour "Behind the Music" special they did. Curse you, cable TV!

Ooh... if it makes it to the small screen you should DEFINITELY have a viewing. :)

I was pretty obsessed with the Monkees when I was growing up, too. I spent whatever money I had on their cassette tapes, books, and magazines. I even remember crying once because I was going to miss an episode I hadn't seen before. LOL...

I so fell for the feminist bait. Alsas, I think the ruckus is over.

Matt's a good photographer. Failing that, I'm willing to give it a shot.

(No, that was not meant to be a pun, damn it.)

oooh, that's awesome. so you can make pictures of me that make me look like a hot goth goddess? hehehe. what i mean by that is fuzz them up alot and make sure i'm in strategic shadows. :) (which is kind of a jab at most of the goth chick Lj icons i see in my random wanderings) (i'm mean)

but that would make THREE things we need to do: music thing, food thing, and picture thing. yikes! i suck.

I always wanted to do a bunch of cool pics of friends, and have never had the chance. The way I always envisioned it is that I'd just do a whole damn photo shoot, like you were a model, and then you could pick out your favorite ones, and do whatever you want with them. We can play with lighting, backgrounds, angles, clothes, poses, moods, and everything. Very fun!

You go, listgrrl! Make that list! And don't forget to give yourself credit for all the stuff you have done, even if there are items you don't scratch off right away. :)

Uh-oh, sorry to hear that Oz once again found your possessions to be tender and soothing to his needy bum.
