buried treasure

Posted by clare on May 29th, 2004

The best discovery of the day, as of 8:48AM: opening up the faux-newspaper liner notes of my special edition of Jethro Tull’s Thick as a Brick and finding Vanilla Ice’s To the Extreme. Seriously. The album. I can only imagine that I unintentionally stole it from Sarah De La Garza at some point in high […]

I’ve been avoiding political commentary for a while now, mostly because I’m rarely able to manage much more than incoherent rage. In times like these, it’s good to know that Monty Python can be counted on to speak for the voiceless such as myself (link courtesy Ali).

productivity, of a sort

My main accomplishment for today, other than ripping another shelf of my CDs (iPod-bound), was updating and expanding the Peace Corps section of my website (again).

Come to my and Mike’s screening tonight: CHICKENS! Woooo! 7pm. CMB Studio 4D. Party afterwards. In the website update department, I’ve set up a category archive in the Peace Corps section of my site to only display PC-related blog entries.

films + shiny goodness

Last night a few of the RTF guys who live near campus hosted a film night, projecting an episode of Upright Citizens Brigade and a bunch of student work onto bedsheets hung on the side of their neighbor’s house. There was a good crowd and a good collection of films—plus a good response to my […]

Maryann left this morning for Baton Rouge and preparations for her sister’s wedding next Saturday. I’m taking full advantage of having the house to myself by guiltlessly blasting music, walking around in my underwear, and peeing with the door open. It’s a downhill slide into summer from here. I was dangerously, gloriously close to boredom […]

“Est. Ship: On or before 05/14/2004”

the end is the beginning is the… aw, fuck it.

And I finally have a moment to catch my breath—predictably, while at the DVlab, but thankfully while watching the little colored bar inch its way across the DVD Studio Pro progress window. We’ll see if this works or not. Finished: College classes: My last class meeting was this past Wednesday—the history seminar that was one […]
