Ebay is my new thrift store, although shipping costs are a deterrent. but tell me I'm not going to look fabulous this winter in this. eee!

So, it's no secret that I listen to hot 99.5. I know, the music they play on hot 99.5 is not exactly exemplary in the line of progressive feminist sentiment, but the beats are phat (as Jack would say) and, well, it's not like it is going to turn me into a chauvinist woman-hating pig, I think i'm pretty safe on that one. But sometimes this station makes me laugh right out loud. Today's stupid pop lyric of the day: "Looking good plenty time / Is there any more room for me / In those jeans". Just reading the words doesn't do it justice. I'm sure they will play the song every 15 minutes soon enough, so listen for yourself. The guy wailing at the end of the song about getting in those jeans sings it with the conviction of the most enraptured gospel singer, as if he were making an entreaty not to a woman in really tight jeans, but to Jesus himself. It cracked me up. Honestly, I find myself less angry at the utterly out and out un-PC songs than when the pop stars try to make a politically/socially responsible song and then screw it up. Anyways, that said, is there ANYONE on my friends list who goes to clubs where they play this kind of music? Because I would love to go out and dance to some Justin Timberlake. I hope no one drops me off their friends list for saying that.

I spent all day watching "I love the 70s" on VH-1. Captivated. Me and my stupid pop culture addiction. And my roommate, who, being sick was trapped watching hour upon hour of this with me. Actually I think she didn't mind that much. ;) I crack up every time Michael Ian Black deadpans something ridiculous. "Benji and his girlfriend made love, and ironically, they did not do it doggy style. It was beautifully shot." It brought back one concrete memory I have from the 70s: Les Nessman mispronouncing "Chy Chy Rod-ruh-gweez". It's funny what sticks with you.

It's gonna be a long night at work if things keep up like this. As far as my personal and work life go, everything is awesome. I feel good. I mean what is there to really say about that? I don't feel anything pressing on me. Well, clearing up my tax situation. Currently reading: Anne Rice's The Witching Hour.

[edit] Fox News reports on something I want to hear!?!! I'd never do it myself but after thinking about it a bit, I suppose the message of "don't be a selfish, materialistic asshat" hasn't been getting across lately, so it's good that someone reintroduced the idea with a little more force. Oh, I'ma gonna catch hell for this one.

Re: FOX news link

L.a.m.e. A perfect example for me of the kind of things a protest shouldn't be.
Aug. 22nd, 2003 10:16 pm (UTC)
*shrug* that was what i thought at first, and i know it will not be taken seriously and even used as ammo against the ideas the protestors are trying to get across, but then i said, fuck it, it makes me giggle. i know, how irresponsible of me.

Protesters should march only in straight lines, and go promptly home informed that they have become any sort of inconvenience. Anything else is unamerican.
Aug. 23rd, 2003 10:58 am (UTC)
By unamerican do you mean ordering strawberry rhubarb pie instead of apple? Because, I think I might be screwed.

And one protestor should carry a pooper-scooper in case any of the other protestors make a mess. Hee hee. You crack me up!

I'm going to go out on a limb and say, "You will not look fabulous in that." Because no one can. It is too ugly!
Aug. 23rd, 2003 01:33 pm (UTC)
but it will be SO UGLY that i, in contrast, will look fabulous. er, or something. :)

just so it makes more sense to you, the lyric is actually "lookin' good, plenty tight - tell me is there any more room for me in those jeans." ginuwine is the smoothest. i'm pretty sure that song is already past its every-15-minutes stage though, or at least it has already been run through same on mtv. i haven't tried 99.5 yet, but i totally will now. i'm still so bitter about losing 105.7 to talk radio...
Aug. 25th, 2003 09:21 pm (UTC)
hrm, i never heard 105.7. 99.5 is fine so long as you don't hate ONE song on their playlist, as their playlist is about 20 songs long. you're gonna hear that song alot. right now my programmed stations are:

89.5, 90.1
94.7, 99.5, 97.1, 107.3

So I take it that you didn't actually mind that someone broke into your car and stole your stereo?

And You must also have no problem with those concerned citizens that broke into and stole items fromtzel and drich storage units.
After all, I'm sure they were protesting something.

Either stealing and/or destroying OTHER peoples property is wrong, or it is not. You decide, Kim.

If think it's not, then fine. I don't expect to hear any complaints from you if your car is vandalized and/or your stereo is stolen again. I suppose the message of "don't be a hypocritical, moral relativistic asshat" hasn't been getting across well lately, now has it.

Now what actually should happen is that the person or persons responsible for the one million dollars in damages should be sent to jail. They should not be let out until they've work off the $1,000,000 (plus interest) in reparation.

Pbt and throwing all that tea in the ocean was a big waste of tea, they should've just shut up and paid the stamp tax

on the other hand, if these guys had been beaten in the parking lot with ball bats i would've had no problem with that.

i'm still not in favor cars that waste gas though, and since "the environment" and anything that tries to legislate that is for sale, i can just cry about it until the enitre country is a desert. but we'll all have really great cars.

an SUV is really handy if you have to move something though. Mostly I just need to move only myself most of the time.

The Boston Tea Party is a complicated case that on the surface may seem similar to the destruction of the SUVs. Though in 1773, the people of Boston were forced to pay an import duty (collected by the crown) for tea the did not want. The colonies first attempted to blockade their ports from ships carrying the tea. When that failed, their plan was to forced British tea agents to leave their positions. The agents refused. Then [o]n November 29 and 30, 1773, the townspeople met two times to try to decide what to do about tea on three East India Company ships docked in the harbor. They decided to send the tea on one ship, the Dartmouth, back to England without paying the taxes. The Royal Governor of Massachusetts, Hutchinson, didn't agree and ordered the customs officials not to let the ship sail from the harbor unless the taxes are paid. Over 5,000 townspeople of Boston and surrounding towns gathered at Old South Meeting House to plead with the governor to send the ships back to England. However, Governor Hutchinson refused and it was that night, December 16, that sixty men dressed as Mohawk Indians and went over to the Boston harbor.

A more apt correlation would be radical Pro-Life members bombing abortion clinics and murdering abortion doctors. Since they're murdering innocent unborn children, then by Kims theory, it must be okay.

2. The Witching Hour, in my opinion, one her best books. Did care that much for the series that later followed it, but love the story.

3. Heard about the SUV/Hummer trashing on the radio. Yep, I'm one of the people that disagree with the action even if I agree with the sentiment. Talk about selfish. How selfish is it for someone to think their opinion is so right, that they restort to violence to express it? No one was hurt in this. I like to think that the people did this little bout went out of the way to make sure no one would be. Even so, it was selfish and counter-productive. People that were neutral on the subject are more likely to be dismissive of the folks that criticize gas-guzzlers.

PS - Having officially disagreed with you, I want to tell you that I am very happy that you give a damn and pay attention! So many people don't.

Since they set fire to the dealership as well, they must not have thought too much about the life and welfare of the fire fighters that would need come put the fire out.
