Lately, I enjoy the crispness of words.
Precise and succulent.
Contextually significant.
Arbitrarily individualistic.

So unlike me.
So unlike I'll ever be.

I just don't know.
I'm so tired;
so tired,
and I just don't know.

Bronx Mowgli - Already A Pop Culture Reference

I am watching last week's episode of House, and House just called Cuddy's baby Mowgli. Classic!

Co-Workers; Music

I work with this guy who always insists on having this higher-than-thou attitude. He has his little private jokes; he snickers. He is so condescending, and there's nothing I can about it. Today we had a fight and now I'm festering inside, dying to leave work.

Anyway, I'm making a list of music/albums I have been really into lately as to remind me what I need to purchase. Check 'em out if you're not familiar.

1. Jamestown Story - Love vs. Life
I really didn't like the EP he put out before this one...I can't remember what it's called. Anyway, I'm really enjoying this one.

2. Kara Laudon
Some of her music is posted on iTunes, but I'm not sure what the title of the release is. Really simple acoustic; honesty; not showy. Just good home grown music.

3. Coconut Records - Davy
I posted something about him on SomethingPunk last week and have been listening to him since. Really good stuff. Quirky folk.

It Will Blow Your Mind
01/12/09 at 07:53 PM by mallyland
I'm listening to When I Hit The Ground and it's so good. I'm in love. Actually, I'm surprised. I love Ace and loved The Secret Wars, but there's something different about this. I don't know. I'm glad I have a while to let it soak in. Just know, you will not be disappointed.

I'm thinking about submitting something to the AbsoluteINK writing forum.... Now that I'm getting closer to graduation I want to get back into writing. I mean, I write lines here and there, but I rarely ever finish poems anymore. I probably have 20 unfinished poems/lines just lying around. Maybe I need some man to break my heart.

I'm also thinking about getting back into some prose. Right before I fall asleep I have the most eloquent thoughts, but never write them down then and there. Come morning, the sheen has worn off and they sound like a bunch of unoriginal, incoherent ramblings. I'm so excited for graduation. I'm usually over-nervous and pessimistic about the whole thing, but for some reason -- right at this very moment -- I feel good about it. I will find an affordable apartment. I will find a full-time job. I will be able to afford all my bills, including my repayment of loans after 6 months. It has to work out. It just has to.

Rolling Stone's Review of Fall Out Boy

Well-written, no doubt, but just I'm pretty sure Jody hasn't been with Fall Out Boy since day one.

Satisfied With Life
12/15/08 at 02:12 PM by mallyland
The semester is over. I've finished reviewing the most pressing albums (AAR & FOB); I've painstakingly transcribed a garbled interview (who knew cell phones would interact with voice recorders?); I've bought my sister her Christmas present of Grateful Dead Converse (I am the best sister ever).

I have a few more things to get done before I head home for Christmas on Wednesday: send out Christmas cards, polish resume and send it and my letter of recommendation to the MN Historical Press in hopes of gaining a summer internship (!!PLEASE!!!); make my Best Of 2008 list....I think there's more, but I can't remember!

English Majors
12/09/08 at 10:23 AM by mallyland
Are there any English majors that would be willing to proofread my Senior Seminar paper? It will eventually (by Friday noon) be 25 pages, right now it's...well, not that long. Instead of explaining what it's about, here's the (working) title:
"From Princess to Queen: Resonations in the Life of Queen Elizabeth I"

Let me know -- I would greatly appreciate any help! :)

Fall Out Boy
12/07/08 at 08:57 PM by mallyland
Can I just say how excited I am for this album? Granted, I am biased and love Fall Out Boy. But, there is just something about the snippets swimming around the internet that have me indescribably pumped. When I hear the album in its entirety (hopefully this week?!), I have a feeling it will be, hands down, my favorite FOB album. Until then, of course, From Under the Cork Tree will hold that spot. Man, oh, man. It's going to be a good winter break.

Fueled By Ramen: Banking On Trends
12/01/08 at 03:34 PM by mallyland
I know other labels do this, but not quite as consistently as Fueled By Ramen. Currently the trend is female-fronted bands. So what does FBR do? They sign a whole slew of them. Who created this trend? FBR. FUCK FBR.

Steel Train Looovvvess Me
11/23/08 at 07:21 PM by mallyland
Steel Train dedicated "Women I Belong To" to me. Unfortunately, I can't prove it because I didn't catch the dedication on tape. Oh, well, here's the MOST of the song -- the camera died toward the end.

EDIT: Nevermind. AP won't let me share it from photobucket, and I'm not uploading it anywhere else yet.

A very informative interview will be up on SomethingPunk.com very sooon :)
