Pret-ty lame. 'Tis the holiday season and all that, but really there's no excuse for the blog, or more specifically, what this blog has become. Or hasn't become.
The idea is to just write whatever comes to mind, so I'll give you a rundown of what's come to mind recently:
1. My blog upstart coworker is better at it than I am.
2. Not much else.
As a substitute for remembering what's been in the brainpan lately, which is always way more difficult than it should be, I went back to my IE browsing history to find out what I've been doing. Pretty soon we'll all have computers to remember everything for us so we don't have to. Anyway, here's some of it:
-Spent some time on www.absintheonline.com (had it once in Glasgow and it's fascinating stuff indeed. Not just for moody, clove-smoking goths.)
-Checked out a story about Brian Wilson and the resurrection of the lost Beach Boys SMILE album and watched Mike Love's highly embarrassing speech at the 1988 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony for the Beach Boys in which he gets wasted and insults the Beatles and Rolling Stones. One of the YouTube comments, "What an incredible douche bag," says it best.
-Felt like slitting my wrists after searching Brooklyn real estate.
-Club Penguin, just to see what the hell it was. I have enough problems running my own life to have an avatar, much less a penguin avatar. Ever see March of the Penguins, for God's sake? Besides, it's for kids.
-I do have to do some work now and again.
-Remember those pictures in Highlights magazine where you have to find the hidden objects or discover weird patterns and things like that? There's a website devoted to those kinds of things, and it's killer.
-Durham Township, one of my favorite photoblogs.
-Metacafe, which is often better than YouTube.
-The difference between Brooklyn and Manhattan pizza. And David Byrne's blog, because he's David Byrne.
-www.nygirlofmydreams.com. Did you hear about this? Cynics be damned, I thought this story was as sweet as strawberry rhubarb pie. It's kind of old news, but if you look around you can see the video of the two of them interviewed on the Today show. Girl is wicked cute. And Australian.
-Tried to find out the candidates' stance on the environment.
-www.linerider.com. Always fun. For a real good time, look up some courses on YouTube. 'Tis the season, after all.
