I'm rocking out to the portions of the new Ben Folds album (Lonely Avenue) I can get on youtube and groove shark and, guys, it's fucking amazing. The title is a quote from one of the 2 songs I've heard, From Above. So, I don't know if you guys know Ben Folds, but if you don't (or if you do) it's time to immerse yourself in him for the next week and a half at least. Take some Mountain Goats/ Radiohead/ Arcade Fire/ CAKE breaks and just dive into some Ben Folds. He is AMAZING. Let's look at some more quotes...
I’m a genius, really, I’m excellent
Better than them, I kick their asses
All of them, even that guy
Who thinks he’s fuckin’ cool
Gets all of the attention
He doesn’t sell shit does he.
-A Working Day... this song is too good... I'm linking it here:
Also, here is from above:
... Ben Folds may or may not make my "guilt free three"... the only thing that might hold him back is the fact that he's 44 and married with 3 kids... but he's AMAZING.
So I'm pretty sure that the theme for this week is procrastination... let me tell you that, when it comes to procrastination, I'm a goddamn genius. I have ADD and a hard time focuOOOOOH SHINEY! No, but really, I have ADD and I procrastinate to the MAX. And much like Scotty with his crazy teleporting abilities you have to be born with the procrastination skill, it can't be learned.
So, something that I know shouldn't get on my nerves, but does anyways: People constantly say I don't act like a girl... this confuses me... I know I probably eat like a guy, but still, hey, look, I'm a girl... so, girls, I'f wondering WHAT IS THIS CRITERIA FOR GIRLY-NESS THAT I SUPPOSEDLY DON'T MEET? Please, tell me in the comments.
Other things from this week: a lot better than last week. Last week sucked... this week rocks- ish!

WHAT I'M WATCHING: well, how I met your mother is a great way to procrastinate... I just started watching old episodes and it's really funny. I love Neil Patrick Harris.
