I (and by "I" I mean both Liz and myself) am going to be in Dallas on the 23rd and part of the two days surrounding. What for? Ben Folds, of course. I'm excited beyond all reason. I've been listening to Way to Normal obsessively since I bought it (As in it's the first album I listen to when I get to work). You should all listen to it and worship the awesomeness, even if you don't like Ben Folds (which, why would you not? That's just plain silly of you), because it is superior and amazing and other superlatives.

Side note: this keyboard sucks. The keys are all sunken in, and you pretty much have to smash them to make them work sometimes. This may also be because it's wireless, and wireless si teh suxxorz.

I swear I had something else substantial to add, but I may be fooling myself. Mostly I just have passing thoughts and random gripes.

-I'm tired of getting junk e-mail
-My sister wants guitar hero for Christmas
-I can't decide if I want a 360 or a Wii
-I've had to pee since like 4:45 (you're welcome)
-I want to go skiing. But I'm sure I'll suck and fall a lot since it's been like 7 years since I last went
-I'm making feeble attempts to branch out and make friends at work, because I'm tired of being boring and spending weekends at home. I kind of suck at making friends
-I'm hungry
-I keep remembering files that were on my computer that I'm mad about losing. Like the rest of my Venture Brothers icons
-This post kind of has no point
-Look at me, I'm fishing for comments!

So, inspired by Liz, I decided to compose my list of the 20 most influential albums of my life. A lot of these will probably come as no surprise to you, but you may be surprised to find some things NOT on the list. Frankly, I'M surprised by some of the things that made the cut and got bumped. I abided by the same rules she did (no soundtracks or compilation albums, basically. Just straight up artists and their work), plus I've also provided commentary, because I felt like it. Like her, I really encourage the rest of you to do this. It's a pretty fulfilling exercise if you put the proper thought into it.

In no particular order:

cut for length )

If anybody wants any of these, I'd be happy to upload them. Just drop a quick comment. For now I'm too lazy.

Things of note of the past week:

There was the ice storm, obviously, that apparently still has a number of people without power. But it's down considerably from 500,000, which is good.

The Christmas party on Wednesday, at which I won an ihome but also $415 just for sitting there. Okay, not really. Our team leader picked the key that freed Santa, so we split $2500 amongst 6 people.

I also got a fat (and phat) Christmas bonus of $300 on Wednesday.

Got paid on Friday.

Got my first set of covers approved for author review. Once they make that cut, I'm going to post them on my website and possibly deviantart.

Carla came into town yesterday. Have I mentioned lately that she's one of my least favorite people? She has a negative attitude about EVERYTHING. It didn't take her 24 hours to start cleaning our house and telling us what we're doing wrong and bitching at everybody for no good reason other than just to be bitchy. She has everybody walking on eggshells and is just this HUGE catalyst and ends up making us all yell at each other for stupid things like vacuuming at the wrong time or something. We're seriously considering getting a hotel just so we don't have to be around her anymore.

She's freaking out about the fact that we don't have any Christmas decorations, and she made us run around OKC looking for a tree, when we had one in the attic, we just couldn't find it. I knew it was in there, and I actually found it a bit ago, so maybe that will ease some tension.

Really, if it were up to us, she wouldn't be allowed to stay at our house, but since this is Liz's mom's house, too, we don't have a choice. However, once she moves out, Carla isn't allowed here. Ever.

That's all from this front. How's everything with you?

Important things of the last couple of days:

- Oklahoma is humid as balls.
- I don't hate our house in OKC.
- OKC is so way cooler than Denver. Smaller, less people, and friendlier.
- Liz's mom still rocks for buying us a washer, dryer, and fridge, and paying for our first month of rent. In Liz's words (and sort of The Jeffersons'), "She's earning a deluxe retirement castle in the sky"
- Liz's grandparents are crazy. But in the good way. And sometimes not. But that's the South for you.
- After seeing all the cats there, I'm ready for another kitty. But we have to wait until Liz's mom is out of the house.
- I had never seen a real sunset until yesterday, because I've lived around mountains my whole life.
- I'm so tired of driving and moving, and there's still the biggest part left. Yuck.
- I'm sick of my mom whining about me never being around when the point of us being here is to move, not to dick around with her.
- Asthma is still the most blowing-est disease in the world. Well, relatively speaking, anyway.

We're back in LA now. Picking up the u-haul tomorrow and loading it up. Back to OKC on Friday. Probably back here again in the middle of the week some time to get the animals. What a big pile of shitty von shit-fucks fun.

Yes, I'm posting a review and reactions to Deathly Hallows. If you don't want to hear about it, then fucking well don't read it. Simple as that.

That being said... I'm sure I don't need to tell you there's spoilers )

The End.
leujin: (Destiny)
Things and junk!

1. Saw Live Free or Die Hard two weekends ago, and failed to mention it. It was totally awesome, and I meant to give a review, but it's been too long since I saw it so I don't really remember much, I just remember it rocked.

2. Saw Transformers on Friday. It also rocked. Sufficiently. Let's just say that you really ought to go see it, and there's some really super fantastic suprises.

3. Going to the midnight for HP:OotP, then I'm going to work the next day. Man I'm crazy.

4. My birthday is in like 2 weeks. BBQ ROFLCOPTER. I don't know what I'm going to do. Ask Liz.

5. We're cleaning today. Our apartment looks nifty clean.

6 has gone on a Top Secret mission and will probably return in a body bag.

7. Holy shit we're moving at the end of August. I'm entirely not ready.

8. On second thought, I am ready to move. I'm ready to start from scratch, which is basically what we're doing. We're taking computers, movies, books, TV, and animals. Oh yeah, and clothes and stuff we're attached to. Basically we're just leaving the furniture. So it's not really from scratch, we're just lazy.

9. I'm gonna be king of the pirates!

1. I still miss my cat. I wish I could bring him back, but unfortunately he was not Jesus-cat and shall not rise today.
3. There's a special Easter comic for transplant today, assuming the update thingy gets unclogged.
4. Actual transplant updates resume tomorrow!
5. I'm seriously tired of snow.
6. Number six called in dead today
7. I'm thoroughly ready to move to Oklahoma.
8. I hear back from the interviews on Tuesday and Friday, weather I got it or not.

The End.

I asked [livejournal.com profile] misspadfoot to interview me, and thus she did.

1. What piece of artwork or design are you most proud of?
At the moment I am incredibly pleased with my digital portfolio. I keep getting compliments from everyone about how awesome it is. In fact, it's the reason I got the internship which I now have, which I am very happy with. Of course, if you want an ACTUAL piece of artwork, I'm still insanely proud of my vector self-portrait and my mountain dew ad. Both of which are seeable on my deviantart.

2. What is the best lesson you learned either in college or through your internship?
Don't take life too seriously or you'll regret it. I spent all high school trying to get good grades (okay, more accurately I should say thinking that they mattered), and I've come to learn that nobody actually cares. The only people who care are the people giving them.

3. What do you miss the most and the least about high school?
Most: I miss how carefree things were. I didn't have to impress anybody to get a job and money was no object. I was happy with my crap-ass wage slave job. Least: cliques. Granted they weren't as bad in Los Alamos, because everyone came from nerd stock, but it still existed and it still sucked.

4. If you were given the opportunity to be a girl for a day, would you take it? If so, what would you do?
Why pussy-foot around it? Yeah, I'd take it. I'm always curious as to how the other side functions. I'd probably take the opportunity to parade around in all my pretty things. Bwah.

5. From whence did Cheeseman originate?
The tales of Cheese-man! (that's the proper spelling, by the way. With the hyphen and the exclamation mark) are long and arduous. He hails from the planet of Cheeseopia, where he was raised in a land of American cheese being the only one made of swiss. One day Captain Microwave moved the planet (which is made of cheese) out of it's precarious orbit and closer to the sun, thus melting the planet and its denizens. Fortunately Cheese-man! was sulking high in orbit at the time, so he was saved. He has vowed his vengeance ever since.

The actual IDEA of Cheese-man! originated because I have a really hopelessly bizarre obsession with cheese, and when asked in middle school what super-hero I would be, I was flustered and came up with only Cheese-man! Thus his pointless legacy was born.

If'n you wants to be interviewed, leave a comment and I shall come up with 5 questions which to ask you.
