I want to make a list.
You may not be her first, her last, or her only. She loved before she may love...– Bob Marley (via megamazing) (via crazybeautiful) (via bon-bon) (via endosymbiotic)
sandboxwarrior: SINCE WE ALL HAVE SPIKE JONES ON THE MIND… Drop - The Pharcyde Music video directed by Spike I need to watch this five more times to memorize the lyrics.
Final Four. Yep.
Here’s what I wrote about Louisville after MSU beat Kansas in the third round. I was right. I don’t want Louisville shaking in its boots. I want them comfortable, expecting to blow us out like we’re Arizona (a team that arguably shouldn’t even have made the tourney). I want them thinking we’re a poor man’s UNC, with our poor man’s Hansbrough (Suton) and our poor man’s Lawson (Lucas). You...
Who is Tariq Ali?
I’m going to see him talk, and all I have to eat are Reese’s Pieces.
Published Twice in the Same Mag
The Offbeat has chosen to publish both of the stories I sent them. I’m kind of excited about it, but they want my copyrights indefinitely. Being new to the biz, I’m not sure if this is a no-no or not. I think a couple of years ago the same mag wanted a year of copyright to the story they published. Why has it changed? The contract allows me to ask get permission to print it elsewhere,...
danhacker: The first theatrical trailer for Spike Jonze’s ‘Where The Wild Things Are’ This is one of the best produced trailers I’ve seen for any film in a long, long time. If this film can even come close to giving me the same feeling I have while watching this trailer, then Spike Jonze will have created something truly amazing. People need to stop worrying about how this movie is going to...
Sunday, March 22nd. 839 words. (DWOM)
holwerdaeveryday: The dance show finished up, turning out so the voting public kicked off Rebecca’s favorite dancer. She was visibly upset, and looked like she wanted to argue. Gray looked to the lampstand, and pulled an old issue of Reader’s Digest from the pile of magazines covering it. He flipped it open and pretended to read, nodding slightly and chewing on his lower lip, trying to look...
Try again. Fail again. Fail better.– Samuel Beckett, Worstward Ho
I wish Tumblr was creepier.
I don’t want to follow people anymore. I want to stalk them.
Here's a post about the things I should be doing...
In order of importance. Writing. Editing/rewriting. Working on my dad’s website. Applying for jobs. Studying Sending stories out. Excercising / playing sports. Reading. Drawing. Things I should be doing less: Stumbleupon. Watching sports. Call of Duty 4. Putting other people above myself. Procrastinating Sleeping Eating(?)

sashas: I just won an ebay auction for a typewriter! My mom and I were watching it the whole day. It’s pretty sweet. I can’t wait to be like Ernest Hemingway, pecking away. I have a typewriter fetish.
The economy’s so bad, my bank has decided to give me an extra thousand dollars worth of credit! WOO! It’s almost like I just found a thousand dollars! (I know this is an irresponsible thing to be happy about. And I’m not in money trouble, per se, but it’s nice to know that if I need to be in serious money trouble, my bank is going to let me!)
A Very Time-Consuming And Hopefully Well-Reasoned...
I don’t want to go.

simonf: I famously read no blogs, though this one would be on the list if I did. You also famously don’t help me with stuff I ask you to. (You can say no!) For shame, Frankson, for shame.
danmeth: METH MINUTE MONDAYS: The Palms There’s this, like, totally addictive reality show called “The Palms”. It’s about, like, a bunch of beautiful young women trying to make it on their own in Los Angeles. They’re totally forced to make tough choices about boys and careers in fashion, and BleeyeearghhhhHHHHhk! I couldn’t stop laughing.
It’s always fun to see something live that you know everyone’s going to be talking about tomorrow. Is it better when it might possibly ruin a dude’s career? Probably. Jim Cramer, of “Mad Money” fame, went on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and was interviewed. By interviewed, of course I mean, prosecuted to the full extent of the Comedy Central host’s ability....

I changed the theme to my tumblr on accident and lost my old personalizations. Oh well. I picked a new theme and I think it looks good. After a while I’ll modify it.
This is my favorite place in Chicago. (It’s not a picture, it’s an embedded Google streetview location. Go ahead and drag on it!)
Just saw Watchmen
carolinemartin: It was everything I hoped it would be and more, which is saying a lot because I’ve been looking forward to this movie for about a year now. It’s amazing to see individual frames replicated on the big screen. I already know I want to go and see it again to see all the little things I missed, like the side column stories on newspapers and the background characters (I want to find...
Full. Frontal. Voodoo.
I think this might be the first time I’ve watched three movies in a row that have crazy amounts of nudity. Unintentially, I mean. Last night: Broken Flowers on Hulu. With Bill Murray. By Jim Jarmusch. Good movie. Today at 5: Watchmen. Do I even have to tell you how much nudity there was? Not to mention other uncomfortable images. However, the film is a masterful adaptation, and...
I’m gonna take a ride downtown on a train, get some food. Hang out. Draw pictures. Read a book. How does that sound, people of the earth? I went to the bathroom at like 4:30 last night, opened the door and flicked on the lights. As I stepped inside and started shutting the door, a dark shape scurried out of the opening from behind the toilet. Too big to be a roach, too small to be a rat. A...
