guilty pleasure

in music

Gwen Stefani's "Hollaback Girl" video has become a new guilty pleasure for me, I think. The lyrics are truly inane, but I can't help but watch. :) The funny thing is that I don't normally find her all that attractive. Actually, I think it's all the high school band imagery and sound that do it for me. I could be wrong, but it looks like they wrangled members from a real band (or bands) to help with the video.

Robot Chicken meets Voltron meets Jeff

in geekiness, memories

It's either really cool or really lame that I recognized the Voltron toy used in one of the episodes of Robot Chicken (the sketch where Voltron "got served"). It's the exact one I had as a kid (and still have in one of my keepsake boxes). I used to LOVE that show. EDIT YET AGAIN: And Cartoon Network and the YouTube posters play cat and mouse. The video works (for now), but unfortunately no lyrics any more. Have fun!

This is a real shot from a show describing how to install a winch on an ATV.

Comments? :)

Feasts and Famines

in deep thoughts, life events/news

The last several months have been a really introspective time for me. I've had cause to think about a lot of things in my life and ponder what I should do about them. Some of the stuff is personal enough that it doesn't belong here, but I have a feeling it might be good for me to talk about some of ones that I can. If I've learned anything from Amy, it's that writing can be a really therapeutic thing. Honestly, I don't do enough of it. Read more »
