melissa woulda done it better

most of the time everythings the same. then it gets a little different like it will rain.

but it hasnt rained here in a while and it doesnt seem that summer knew it was summer already.

but then it got really warm and i was all whaddup and she sent a little note in the mail

some things are definately girlie and when theyre aimed at you

and only you, then suddenly pink isnt so bad.

im starting to believe theres an element of magic or potential magic

in just about any situation. which is why we love magicians

yes i used to be hairier

yes i used to be skinnier. yes i used to pal around with hippies in berkley as they celebrated their children’s birthdays

and now im someone who sees a film like The Hangover and i fall asleep for a few minutes and i wake up rested and i think mmmmm maybe some junior mints would get this bad taste out of my mouth. and then i nod off again. but just until someone yells or a car crashes on the screen.

wanna know why sometimes the comments are the best part?

cuz say you have an arts blog. one that handles opera and ballet and paintings and stuff.

then say you have comments on this blog.

then say someone knows something about something and they wanna tell you and your blog: so they put it in the comments WHERE IT BELONGS!

then say you read the comment, call the people involved, oh like the Orange County Museum of Art who just sold close to a million dollars in cali impressionistic art, who then admit to it!?!?

well, if youre a newspaper blog, suddenly you have what they call a scoop

and if youre a good newspaper blog that scoop leads to a sweetass followup

which is what happened on Culture Monster today, which is why im so proud of them. which is why i decided to put this pretty picture of me next to it all, cuz back then i was muy impressionistic.

Sarah: What’s more effective for girls: laying it all out there or playing hard to get?

life is way too short for playing hard to get. lay it out there, see what happens, collect yr winnings.

Gage: I have a time machine. 1885, 1985, 2085… which one do you want to spend a week in and why?

i like a little cigarette smoke in a girls hair.

anti: rank the top 5 most important news stories during the past week, and explain why you ranked them that way.

1. lakers world champs. what was it, like two years ago when kobe was asking to be traded? and phil is getting paid and he gets away with dating the bosses daughter. and somehow the lakers have gotten away with getting pau in that trade. and even without a totally healthy young stud center, the lakers have been to the finals twice in two years and last night finally won. its important for three reasons. it proves that phil can do it with only one full blown superstar. it proves that kobe can do it without shaq. and it proves that the nba isnt rigged – it was a boring fast finals and it wasnt kobe vs lebron.

2. More porn HIV cases disclosed. although the porn industry said there had only been 1 HIV case in the last 5 years, the LA County health department told the times that there have been at least 16. our total was 22. poor porn.

3. A hunt for Beau Brummell, at bargain prices. there are these stores everywhere claiming $99 suits or 3 suits for $299, etc. so steve lopez gets a $49 and $99 suit. funny video. and since we’re in the great depression, part two, its handy.

4. LAPD detective charged with capital murder. this makes her eligible for the death penalty if shes found guilty. death pentalty for a cop is mighty serious biz.

5. UCLA Undie Run: Who are you wearing? the future leaders of the world tell you what underwear they chose to flaunt drunkenly around their beautiful campus

just know that emotion is inappropriate in the work place. my wii.

zona: have you ever been experienced?

katie: is rev run a real reverend? does it matter?

Butterfly Karma: Have you ever gone to Burning Man? If you haven’t, would you ever consider it?

i have always been curious about burning man. from what i hear youre supposed to be naked and wasted for three days, which i could probably adjust to, but that music is damn near the worst thing humans have ever created. not water bottles, not plastic grocery bags, not global warming: electronica. if they had a hard rock heavy metal burning man – you know, actual music – id be right there.

pitt: what gives?

the weak

g/d: sooner or later leaving Montreal for the fine, fine arts scene. what do you think New York or L.A?

ive been to new york a few times. one time i met a girl at a meet up, got kissed on the cheek by roommates, and spent the night with one of them. ive seen cool bands there, met famous people, drank all night – and loved it. but LA is my lady. probably because of the punk rock to fine arts ratio.
