Just when I think I'm, something pulls me back out -- ALSO, BEST SONGS OF 2006

Today, I swear to God I was going to blog blog blog about why Kirsten Dunst should perhaps be my wife, the worst concert fans ever, the worst airplane seat mates ever, being really old and way too old to use "party" as a verb, but then our Web site went to the string (theoretical physics reference) of hell. I spent most of my Monday (beginning around midnight) communicating with our hosts about how they fucked us.

So instead of reading and blogging, I was watching my computer waiting for it to boil. I didn't do laundry, didn't grocery shop (maybe i'll lose a few pounds this week), but did manage to see my favoritest Michiganer in the universe, buy her dinner and take her to the airport. Wow, she's got a nice life, eh? Joke, joke, joke. If any of you actually visit me in Los Angeles, I can promise similar treatment.

OK, gotta get some sleep and stuff for the battle begins again tomorrow. If I win perhaps I get to see Apocalypto or maybe I'll just start my Netflix membership.

Btw, check this out:

Arcade Fire-"Intervention"

It's guaranteed to blow your mind. If it wasn't officially going to be out next Feb. it would have likely made best of 2006. OK, it wouldn't have but only because I already did it and oh yeah, here that is:
