Best day ever? (like seriously)

So how meta is this posting going to be? (And is the act of asking that post-modern?)

I was trolling for the holy grail of mp3s/youtube videos tonight--a bootleg recording of Rilo Kiley and Debbie Gibson singing Lost In Your Eyes, which happened at a show I went to in 2005. I entered my standard search terms into Google: Rilo Kiley and "deborah gibson." (OK, this time I changed it up to formalize Gibson's name.)

Well, the usual suspects of reviews and stuff come up. Then some hits from this blog come up, which isn't new. But then there was this ...

So of course I HAD to click on that and what did I find ... but this ...

New (to me) blog with catchy title
My So-Cal'd Life tells "how an unchallenged suburban kid from western new york who grew up loving Star Trek, joined the University of Arizona marching band and enjoys blackjack, documentaries and non-fiction sections in bookstores, Broadway musicals, Harry Potter, Entertainment Weekly, the Hollywood Bowl and misses Fairfax farmer's market karaoke, has found that he belongs in Los Angeles--where Rilo Kiley and Deborah Gibson meet."

italics are mine.

--I made an appearance on laobserved.com, which is a great blog about Los Angeles politics/media and such. it's one of the city's best-known and best-written and best-reported blogs. it's run by Kevin Roderick a former L.A. Times staff writer and also someone who posted L.A. Youth to his site!
