Things that have been bothering me/running around my brain/making me say “hmmm” lately.

— What the fuck are those colored tape things that Chris Martin (Coldplay) wears on his fingers?  Nevermind – it doesn’t matter what they’re for.  They look ridiculous.

Coldplay – Viva la Vida

— I think it should be mandatory for everyone to listen to at least a half hour of John Prine music before they say they don’t like it.

John Prine – That’s the Way The World Goes Round

–Social Media is a double edged sword.  Quite often I want to slice many of the sanctimonious, self serving and grossly overinflated egos on my Twitter stream with it. (Once in each direction.)

White Rabbits – They Done Wrong, We Done Wrong

— What the hell kind of name is “Taco Bell” ?  Seriously.  What does that even MEAN?

Say Hi – Oboes Bleat and Triangles Tink  (what?  It’s just as random as “Taco Bell”!)

— Why is it that when I have a million creative ideas and thousands of things I WANT to do…that is exactly when things get crazy, I have no time and then I get all overwhelmed and paralyzed and just play Frontierville for two hours?  Damn you, Zynga! Why can’t I do it all?

Robert Palmer – The Best of Both Worlds

—  I wish I had a house elf.  (Dobby, not Kreacher.)

Dobby The House Elf – Harry Potter Soundtrack – City of Prague Philharmonic

— Sometimes I wonder what people really think of me, and I get all weird and self-depricating.  But thankfully the duration is scads shorter than it used to be, and it takes me much less time to remember that I don’t give a shit. (Y’know.  In the healthy way, not the bitchy way.  Well, okay – half and half.  Fine – 75/25…weighted towards “bitchy.”)

Avett Brothers – Paranoia in B Major

—  If I ever use the phrase “influencer in the space”, you have my permission to smack me right in the mouth.

The Shins – New Slang

—  Wouldn’t it be fascinating to do an analysis of the correlation between hoarders and people who watch HSN and QVC?

Delbert McClinton – Too Much Stuff

—  Confession time, because I feel the need to unburden myself:  I detest Twitter Parties.  There.  I said it.  *whew* (Now, on occasion I will still be involved in them.  But, just know that I’ll be in my own little hell the entire time.)

Tilly and the Wall – Pot, Kettle, Black

—  I’m going to start making up words, ala Lewis Carroll.  (Well, technically Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, but that’s neither here nor there.) I mean, why CAN’T we just randomly create words like vorple?  Fraptious.  Mome wraths outgrabe?  Fabulous.  And when I use these words in articles from now on, those of you who have actually READ this will be the ONLY ones in on the fun. (We’re so deliciously conspiritorial, aren’t we?  Ahhh, how gallownomic!)

    It was fun tweeting with you about Robert Palmer the other night. I do the exact same thing, when I have too much going on and too much to do, that is when Mafia Wars and yakking about crap on twitter completely take over. It’s an escape, just have to reign it in sometimes.

      Moi je ne connais pas du tout , mais c’est vrai que les séries américaines c’est ce qu’il y’a de mieux en ce moment , de plus créatif , d&stuqo;invenrif.Moi le dernier truc que j’aimai bien c’était Seinfeld, le quotiden d’un comédien à New York, hillarant , mais c’est vieux déjà. Dans le dernier monde diplomatique il y’a un article :  » Les gangsters neurasthéniques des « Soprano »,par Geoffrey O’Brien.

    Okay.. not that you care or anything, but those are guitar tapes. Why he wears them when he doesn’t play the dam guitar is much like pondering why his wife thinks she can sing country music. Um hello, raised by artsy fartsy parents mostly in uptown Manhattan and married to a limey quasi rocker living in London and raising a child named Apple (did they name #2 Orange?), that is some serious Honkey Tonk cred there Gwen.

    Couldn’t load Dobby’s song, but you know you’ll have to butter beer wrestle me to get him to be your house elf Muggle Mama. Expelliarmus baby!

    I’ve been wondering why Ohio is considered Mid-West? Mid west? Doesn’t that insinuate that it’s at least halfway to the west? It’s squarely in the eastern third of the country. Now The Dakotas and Nebraska? Okay, I’ll buy mid-west. But those other “midwestern” states are just not “extreme” east.

    Clearly it’s my bedtime.

    I’ve been thinking about not missing being on the computer as much… then I read your post and listen to music not chosen by me and think “damn, some stuff on the computer makes me smile really big”
