Panique au Village!

Everone, stop what you're doing right now and see a movie named "A Town Called Panic". Here's the trailer:

What the shit is this movie about, you ask? Well, having seen it, it's still hard to say really. But it has a cowboy and indian and grumpy horse who live in a house together and these frogmen steal their walls and then their neighbor makes her husband a breakfast of Nutella on bread that covers the entire table and their farm animals all sleep in little beds with little sheep pajamas at night and they use pigs as weapons and fire them in a house until it explodes! Does it make sense to you? Because it should make perfect sense! Bears!

Please, if you have the chance, and are someone who enjoys laughing and fun things and bears and screaming and action figures and especially if you enjoy bricks (not the cocaine kind) and or grumpy farmers (not on cocaine either), please go see this. Because this movie will love you more than you will ever love yourself. I promise.

Starting (Again)

Hello. I'm wondering if anyone will even notice that I've posted on my blog, because it's been more than a year since my last post. But I came across this today and have decided to start writing here again, even if nobody notices. I think this place was a really nice outlet for my thoughts and silly Hot Pocket experiments (may they rest in peace) so I'm going to continue them! In less than a week I'm going on a spectacular road trip, so perhaps I'll make a bit of a travelogue documenting my thoughts and adventures and experiments that arise from that trip.

Right now though, I'm starting these playlists. I had this idea years ago to make playlists not for a person or a type of music but instead making playlists built around a thought, or a time of day, or a place and to play them during their corresponding moments on a road trip. So I'm starting to make some in preparation for this trip. I don't have the list of ideas that I came up with, but here's some that I remember:

Windy coastal road

The mountains at night

Everybody's grumpy and needs to remember that they love each other

Stay awake


It's fucking hot out

There's some more, but those are what I remember. I'm really excited to start making them! Alright, blog, that's all for now, but I promise I'll be back soon for another nice post.

Harry Potter The Musical

Who loves theatre? (Braden) Who loves musicals? (perverts) Who wants to waste far too much time watching this video of some people who made a Harry Potter musical?! No one? Okay. Just me then, I guess. See you in two hours, stupid people who don't want to watch this...

some wonderful things made

Braden and Sara are the most beautiful of all beauties.

Sometimes I listen to Andrew Bird while napping

Bonnaroo was so fantastic! I would post a full recap but that would take too long and no one would want to read the whole thing, so I'll make a list of the best parts (people like lists, right?):

strange torrential rain the first day

straw hats
David Byrne wearing a tutu while singing "Burning Down the House"
The Mars Volta (especially their strangely sexy and funny lead singer)
sweaty morning yoga
making Spaghett!ios hobo-style
taking a beautiful nap while Andrew Bird was playing
seeing Max Weinberg drum it up
Michael and Michael (and Aziz!)
dancing frantically on a board to Okkervil River
imagining Parker's day alone, montage style
half-priced hotdogs
long discussions of motorboating
Raffi on the ride home

Throw Your Hands Up Batman

Work Harder!

Beyonce, Kelly, Michelle, and the ugly one

PS: if you're messing around with that Yooouuu Tuuube thing, never, I repeat NEVER try it with "Pop" by N*SYNC. You are warned.
