at hopkins and pacific

there is a 20-something man that watches tv every night, completely naked, no blinds on the windows, curtains wide open.
one night he was watching porn, completely clothed.
i think i love you.

fucking service industry

"can i get just one custom dozen cookie?"
"umm, it's a dozen. you have to get a full dozen."
"i cain't get just one?"
"no, i'm sorry."

just tack this recurring conversation up there with the moms that call the day of their child's birthday to order a custom cake, the river oaks bitches that don't know what they want, and the people that leave things "up to your discretion" but then are never satisfied. i am really not feeling the whole talk to every person thing. i have met a few nice people, but i think all the bad ones cancel them out. oh, and also: this is not a zoo. please don't stare at me while i work. thank you!

my music is where i'd like you to touch

i once sent kenton a text message that said "how can i be with someone with such terrible, if any, musical taste?" he replied "because you like to feel superior." well maybe that was true, but one of the things i adore about being with kenton is our music. we can swap ipods and hardly notice and he's introduced me to so much music i'd hate to have missed out on. when i hear some songs or even just bands, i can't help but feel old emotions come back. it's always a good thing, it makes me happy and thankful for everything we've been through together. when of montreal comes on i feel like i'm beaming and i look at kenton and wonder if he has all the same associations and memories. so here is my list of bands and all associations i have. there are countless others, but these are some very strong ones from the beginning of our relationship.

  • the faint: the first night we met craig, hash, katamari, drinking too much, working while everyone was sleeping, sending you email after email about my many late-night tribulations, the smell of breakfast, frustration with the overnight cleaners that would invade my space, water up to my calves, i need goulashes to go to work, wanting to see you again
  • franz ferdinand: the tipping point, rocking it coast to coast, drunk calls, drunk texts, "i miss you", cold and rainy pineapple snacking, ending and starting
  • voxtrot: still crazy days and nights, figuring it out, hating 4am alone, leaving the hotel right after the sun came up, crashing, first fight, crazy crazy confusion, chemically bonding, start of something
  • nada surf (let go): no more secrets, just listening and waiting, finally thinking twice even though it was too late, walking out, passing out, living out of a big rubbermaid trunk, reading together
  • of montreal: staying up late, waking up in the middle of the night to kisses, smiling and glowing, fading in and out of drowsiness in the morning while you shower, seeing your smile as you bounced off to work and i got my own morning started or just went back to bed smiling and thinking about you
  • nada surf (the weight is a gift): driving to dallas, rowdy skip-bo at the anatole, falling in love hesitantly, missing the new pornographers, just being happy, aw fuck it i'm gonna have a party
  • belle and sebastian: "honey loving you is the greatest thing/ i get to be myself and i get to sing", sold on "electronic renaissance" and "your cover's blown", knowing i loved you
  • tapes n tapes: you getting your morning party started, the beginning of things being all right again, getting mylacat, going to dallas but not, getting sick, feeling so bad for you passed out with myla by your side, watching you sleep for almost 24 hours straight
  • sound team: craig parties, moving in together like it was nothing, dropping the bookshelf on elmen, the very first thing we played in this apartment while we all moved stuff in the middle of the summer
  • tilly & the wall: girl music month turned week, regretting not going to walter's, your ever so stupid "prove a point" trait that you would not be complete without, one of the best shows i've ever been to, being so happy i was with you, glowy happy intoxicating love

when the internet was fun!

NOTE: the title of this post is meant to sung to the tune of "When You Were Young" by the indie pop sensation the killaz.

There was once a time when the internet was full of endless possibilities instead of endless work. I used to have a million little internet side projects from the onion rip offs, random domains and of course the pocketlint.

But now the internet just means "get to work", well fuck you internet, you aren't my boss.

Which is why is going to be the best site on earth.

some post-spiderman-3 thoughts

i gave kenton 6 oz of vodka
he had maybe 5.5 or 5.75 oz during the movie
plus a funsize bottle of wine
spidey went all emo when the venom symbiote was in him
he really did, eyeliner and in his face hair and all
i think avril lavigne wants to marry him now
or jared leto
we went to max's wine dive after
the executive chef was hanging out with some art institute whores at the bar
our server was a dirty whore that took forever to take our order
kenton's talking to his baby sister on the phone
she is about to graduate high school
i once told him "you just know the whole lacrosse team is going to rape your sister"
i wonder how southwest's lacrosse team is
at least duke had a good lacrosse team
like, the best

i guess i'll go to bed now. spiderman-3 was decent, but not my favorite. blindface howard was very annoying, but foreskin wasn't.
