Dude, this comic book is totally referencing the Odessa steps from Battleship Potemkin. I love knowing stuff like that.

The animals

More to come, these are just a couple of my favorites. Not that anyone who hasn't seen them ever looks at this anyway. But just in case, here's al link to my lil gallery.

I guess maybe because I'm excited for it to be fall...I don't know, but I am actually having a really homesick kind of feeling for philly right now. I know, who would have though? Right at this very moment, it seems like it would actually be a fun idea to go back, and get another little apartment somewhere, and just walk around all the time. I do miss the walking. I loved walking in philly. Sometime next month I'm going to take the train down for the day and do that. Just walk.
Of course, it wouldn't be quite so great as I remember, just because it would be about a thousand times lonelier. I guess part of the reason i miss philly so much today is that I miss my friends so much. Making the right kind of friends is so hard for me, I miss being surrounded by people who 'get' me. I want to go to Reading terminal and china town and old city. I'm sad. I guess I'm just ready to get out of here. I need to get to LA.

So, last week I used the word 'bland' two times in one day, and now today...

I'm cruising through Deviant Art and I find a kind of cool peice of art, so I start cruising through the guy's gallery. And while I'm looking at it, my brain is going "eh, this guy is kind of talented, in a Cal-Arts standard kind of way, not as interesting as that first peice led me to belive"
I'm kind of embarassed for myself.
So I finnish up breezing through page after page of cookie-cutter super-hero drawings (I needed to make sure that first thing was a fluke, and it was)and I scroll down to check out the guy's profile, and who are his favourite artists? The first is Don Bluth, and the rest are some of the more "well known" 9 old men. And you know what I did?? I SNEERED! Like not a mental sneer, where I imagine my face with a sneer on it, but I actually made the lip curling action with my very own mouth. Does John K. have some kind of subliminal mind control thing going on with his blog?

John, if your goal with your blog was to build an army of the faithfull, you're probably well on your way.

Like Godzilla

I love how someitmes my attention span can be so short that I'm trying to read the next sentance before I'm done reanding the first one, which results in me not reading either of them correctly.

The point is, I just read a phrase, and at first I really did think it said "Squash Bambi" but since that was the second of two things I was trying to read at once, it didn't process for a few seconds. It turns out the words were actually "Spanish Bambini" which is strange enough in it's self.

I don't know, I guess I just wanted to share the phrase "Squash Bambi" because it makes me laugh, and it reminds me of the first time I saw Bambi meets Godzilla and I was the only one that laughed.

That song, "Hey there Delilah"? God how I hate it with the fiery, FIERY passion of a thousand suns. GOD I just violently despise the mediocrity of music these days, what a bunch of thoughless, meaningless tripe!!!! Of course not all music is bad now, and it's not like I'd really expect anything better of Top 40 type songs. I don't know....I just....who likes that stuff? What's to like about it? You know what? I'm going for it. I'm going to use it, the 'B' word. These days, like much else in our popular culture, music is BLAND! I can't help it! I realize I'm not making any huge revelation here, it just bothers the SHIT out of me that the radio is full of garbage.

Huh. I like how this started out a pointless post about me reading stupidly, and ended up a pointless post where I rage agains music that sucks.

Love at first notice.

Okay, I officially decide that if I had a time machine, I would totally use it to go back in time and make Gene Kelly fall desperately in love with me. Oh, he's so sweet. I hope he was as nice a man as he seems like.

This movie? "On the Town"? I see it on TV all the time, and I always come in at the same time, and it seems like I always have to stop watching it at the same time too. Someday I may just see the whole thing. Tonight I've made it farther than I ever have! You know, it's kind of a sin that I've never seen "Singing in the Rain"

Looks like William Shatner has been temporarily unseated, Gene Kelly is now my official time-machine movie crush.

So, I think maybe I killed Bergman? Sunday night I spent a long time thinking about how much I dislike his films, and blah blah blah. Then Monday morning I find out he's dead. Huh.

I am having quite some trouble getting my images on here correctly. I guess I'll have to try uploading as opposed to linking. Boo.
