August 31, 2001

Well lest see, today I've eaten...a jar of baby food (banana, oatmeal, and peach...or something like that, it didn't taste that bad) and applesauce. Um. Okay, I'm not starving anything, but a bit more fodo would be nice tomorrow. I guess I'll feel better tomorrow. I feel find now, really, but..oh well. I have to wake up at 7-something AM, going to see the doctor again, YAAAY...

I've been trying to get my own little site at mp3.com. Nice, no? But it says the status is incomplete or something, and I'm not sure what that means, which is real convenient...and it took me forever to figure out how to make a page in the first place. Hopefully all that work will pay off in some way...haha, "work"...

I made two more songs today. That kind of make me get a mp3 page, cos now I have a grand total of 5 songs. Woo. That's enough for me. This is the first song I made, and I don't really like it, there's no happy drum part in it. I couldn't think of anything that would fit. And...it's just not-good! Oh well, that could be my opinion. I like this second one better. More drum-happy. :)

School starts in 4 days...or so? Okay, I STILL have to do my stupid reading thing. I mean, I read the book. Gotta write crap. Crap crap crap.

Also, I took the tiny band-aids off my arms, and on my left arm there's a purple splootch! That's the arm where the needle didn't go in the vein, and now...SPLOOTCH! Hm.

NOTE FOR REBECCA: The surgery was $2015. Thats four teeth, mind you. Yikes!
I'm alive and well! The numbness has worn off...my bottom lip feels a bit strange, but before my whole chin and bottom lip were TOTALLY numb. Okay, lemme start from the beginning.

Well first of all, we (as in my mum and I) went to the wrong office. That was a bummer, but not a total inconvenience.

We got to the place a little late and they told me I have to go again tomorrow so they can see how my teeth are and stuff...woo. I wasn't really that nervous as this point. When the nurses took me to the room where the operation would be and started taking my blood pressure, and putting something on my wrists and fingers to keep track of my heatbeat, then I got a bit nervous. I guess my heart was beating too fast cos my blood pressure reading was too high at first. Mmwee. Then the doctor (who was pretty cool) took my arm and was looking for a vein to stick the needle in...the DRUUGS! Coming through the needle, yup. I've never needed that before. Anyway, I guess he found ht vein cos he stick a needle in, which really didn't hurt much at all, it must have been a teeny needle. I remember saying "I don'y really feel antyhing..." after I saw a nurse putting the stuff in a tube, and then "Oo I feel a little funny now..."

PLOP I'm sleeping. I barely rememember anything! I mean, I was sleeping, but I could hear everything kind of, and feel some stuff, but I was...sleeping. I don't know how to describe it. I remember feelign scraping in my mouth, but obviously my wisdom teeth weren't scraped out. And I could feel the doctor put his arm across my shoulder blade. At some point they put something over my nose so I was just breathing in oxygen. nice, really. And also, I guess the vein in my left arm wasn't cooperating cos they had to stick another needle in my right arm. I could feel them put the band aid on when the whole surgery was over. The surgery felt like it was 10 minutes long, but it was more like 40. Weiiird.

When I woke up I was kind of laughing. I guess they took that as a good sign. I dunno why I was laughing, I guess it was the drugs! :) I walked with a nurse to a room where I got to lie down for a while and then...I went home. Oo. With gauze in my mouth. Lots o BLOOD! ...somewhat. Didn't really hurt at all though. My mouth was still completely numb at the time, mind you.

After being home for a while the numbness wore off and the pain started to settle in, but I've had worse pain before so not a bit deal I guess. I took one Tylenol and I feel fine. The less drugs in me the better. Those sleepy drugs were pretty cool though...
I still have my wisdom teeth!....

...for now. Another 15-20 minutes and I have to leave to have ORAL SURGERY. Hey, I woke up pretty easily today at 8:30, amazing isnt it? I think so. People are working on the lawn right now, saw some dudes through the window. Kind of scary...

Hey, I'm the top rated blog at BlogHop, although I have the least number of votes you need to be there, so it's not extremely justified BUT HEY to be number one for a day is always nice.

August 30, 2001

I put a little comment thing in this here blog...woo, more CRAP to deal with! It's like blogvoices, but isn't. Fun, no?

I got my Rufus pin today! Yaay I'll wear it proudly when I go see Rufus in October! That's less than 2 months...oo cool.

"It's Not Up To You" is a very nice song. Should you download it? Well assuming you haven't heard it, yessss, or else I'd be wasting my breath..

OH something happened tonite. My mum got a new car. I mean, it wasn't like SHOOM BAM BOOM new car, our lease was about up on a Jeep we've had for 3 years so she turned that in and got a...white one? White? White is pretty ugly for a car I think, but then again it's quite easy to see. So maybe it's nice. And the seats are fuzzy, not leather, which is nice! I decided to save the "WARNING CHILDREN CAN BE KILLED OR INJURED BY PASSENGER AIR BAG" tag that was sticking out of the glove compartment, although I don't know what i'm going to do with it. Hey, you don't see those every day! Maybe I'll just stick it in my locker when school starts. Lockers..*shudders*...remind me of hell...um, I mean, SCHOOL!

The typee stuff on this page should be JUSTIFIED now. Is it? ISS ITTT? ANSWER MEEEEE!eeee!ee....ee. E is a funny letter. When it's little like "e" it's like a dude with a mouth, you see what I mean? Wow. IS IT WORKING? FOOFAH!
Anthony gave me a birthday present! :D It's REALLY funny too, it's PENGUINS AND LOTS OF EM! Okay, some penguins..yeah, I was scared. Out of nowhere he pulls out this big gift, and I'm thinking "oo...my..god." One present is a cute little Ty penguin, and the other is a penguin snow cone maker thing. It's really cool! It's got a hat and a bowtie. You stick ice in it's head and turn the crank, and out comes shaved ice! Good, no? HAHA! I owe many thanks to Anthony.

Heeey tomorrow I get to be drugged and have my wisdom teeth ripped from my gums! Hooray! Always good. I get to eat baby food. Mm. Mushee craaap!

Anyway...I'm done talking. Mmm. I want another chocolate cookie. There's one left! Mm!
Hear what I can do in my free time...make funny songs! NEHEHEHE! Me, FruityLoops and Acid Music have good fun together. Here is a bloopy song I did yesterday. Not very good, but it took me a while. Another song that I did today, I think it came out better and it didn't take me as long. :)

Lookie, it ain't so hard...:)

August 29, 2001

Dick Wear, anyone? These French speaking people didn't think about the name very hard, did they?

Cotton Candy: It’s Not Really Cotton, But That’s The Idea

Hey, that's true!
Weiiird, I just started listening to 3WK Radio and they played "Cherry Chapstick" by Yo La Tengo...okay, maybe that's not really weird, but I thought it was (it's a nice song!). They play some cool stuff (Beck, Bjork, Radiohead, Sigur Ros!). I saw Even on their playlist...ooooeee...cool!
Chocolate is yummmmy. I mean, everyone knows that, but anyway, today my mum got some nice chocolates she ordered onlien from here and they're so good. Is there no good American chocolate? Seems like all the best chocolate is in France. THE CHOCOLATE IS SO GOOD you should buy some and see what I'm talkin about...mmmmm...HAZELNUT! Gimme some.

Chocolate cookie also yummy. I said that before, didn't I? Well I popped it into the microwave for 15 seconds (microwave, how I love thee) and it was all niiice and warm, cheeewwyyy melted chocolate bits in chocolate cookie lots of chocolate makes my tummy happy!

Okay, gotta talk about something else besides foood...um, I shouldn't eat so much food. I used to have some kind of infatuation with cookies, but I kind of forget what that was about. That was last summer. I know that much. Maybe it's good that bits of information become loose from my brain. Now if only I could do that at will...bash my head with a hammer, wee!

Hum dum deedum, I was going to start writing my stupid note cards for school, but neh, haven't done it. Maybe tomorrow? Probably not. Before school starts I'll have it done. WOO. Kill me.

I'm quite loving "Private Jinx" by Even...J...Jay...EEE JAY...okay, I shouldn't call him that. But anyway.
AHH SIGUR ROS ON THE TELLY!

On MTV2 to be more exact...has anyone got this? I would really really love to have this...apparently it'll be videos and interview and such stuff, on at these times:

1. fri sept 7 @ 12 midnight right after 'amped'
2. wed. sept 12 @ 12:30 am (officially thursday am ....) after normal video show
3. sat. sept 15 @ 11:30pm after normal video show
4. fri sept 21st @ 12 midnight after 'amped'
5. thur sept 27th @ 12 midnight after video requests.

5 chances to get it. Can anyone help me? :)

Well I got 4 more CDs today, Trailer Park (Beth Orton), And Then Nothing Turned Itself Inside Out (Yo La Tengo), I Can Hear The Heart Beating As One (Yo La Tengo), Supergrass (...Supergrass!). Wooee, I'm listening to Beth right now. The only CD I had heard before is And Then Nothing Turned Itself Inside Out and I think that's a really good album. So now i have it, WOO!

I also got a little present from Carol, friend from Taiwan. AWW how nice! The strange thing is that it's another liquid-ee thing like what Karen gave me, but not really. It's this ladybug floating on yellow liquid...not exactly a ducky in blue liquid but heey! Yeah it's cute. And I got a nice card...actually, 2 because one is from last year. Apparently it got sent back to her, eek. THANKS carol!...she doesnt read this, I guess i should e-mail her.
Rate the blog. DO it. nehehehe..hehe...*evil laughter*...


Aww...Rufus! :) There's an interview here...!!! Me gonna see Rufus WOoeeeooee!....in october...

I think Even look somewhat like Rufus...maybe...not...somewhat. Hmmm. mmmmmmmmmm....I don't plan on busting my brain thinking about this.
Wow I'm bored. Mmdoo. I was reading stuff at Karen's journal. She's in school now so I guess she's quite busy. You just know that when school starts I'll still eb writing in this thing, because...it's saaaad. Mmwell. I was reading her friend's entries too, stuff about BAND camp, bad memories from that. Yuck. Killme.

Why aren't more people online? Usually people are on later. FOOOP! Well. I'm listening to "220V Offshore" by Phonem right now. Electronic-ee stuff. WEEEEEEEE!

What's sad is that out of the Columbia House CDs I got in the mail today, none of them really stand out to me. I got Stereotype A (Cibo Matto), Come On Die Young (Mogwai), Weezer (...Weezer!), and This Is Hardcore (Pulp) and maybe I just didn't listen to em for very long (which is truue) but no Even Joahnsen-revelations yet. I guess those are rare. Stereotype A is the nicest one out of the bunch I guess, like..um...funnest? Mogwai is okay, kind of like GYBE (which stands for Godspeed You Black Emperor but I don't wanna type that out all the time..just remember that from now on) but not as nice feeling. Maybe I should listen to the Pulp and Weezer ones more, although I don't think either of them are really my "type" of music.

As to what is my type, I have no idea.

AHh I just remembered, I heard Beck on the radio! WFUV played "Nobody's Fault But My Own" which was so nice. It was like "AHH BECK AHAHHASDHASHD!" and that song is so preeetty, ee! And Beck sings well. I think WFUV is the only radio station I could listen to and not be annoyed by. Maybe. I don't usuallt recognize the songs, but well, they play Beck. And Rufus. I haven't heard anyh Rufus songs yet, but i know they play them. Woo! Bekkie. Hmm.

The version of Frosti that I downloaded is longer than the one on the album....the one on the album kind of mushes into Aurora, which is also shorter than the one I downloaded and sounds a little different, I mean veeeery llittle..okay, maybe I'm wrong. Mmhmmhmhemmhe. Oh well, Frosti is a cool song, download the 2 minute one cos it's all nice and such.

August 28, 2001

I was just watching Dead Last. Hmmm. It looks like a pretty stupid show in my opinion, but it actually wasn't that bad. It was pretty weird, I watched the whole show, heheeee.

Soo...hmmm...Cristen gave me a funny birthday present, hehe. The best thing is that she cut out the heads of Jonny, Colin, Phil, Ed, and Thom and stuck them on straws...nehe, it's really funny! Trust meee! :D

And we secured ourselves copies of VESPERTINE! Yay! I'm listening to it right now. RIGHTnow. Cooool...yeeheeeheee...

I'm itchy. Under my skin. That's the most annoying. GARG get it off mee!
AHH I remembered something stupid that happened today. My grandma called me to say happy birthday...okay, that's nice. Then she calls me a bit later, don't know why, to ask me what I wanted top be when I grow up. Um...okay. I have no idea. She says I should think about it, and then she tells me that I should be a doctor. She didn't really say it that way, more like "Would you like to be a doctor?" and asked me that 5 million times, while also saying "Think about what you want to be"...this makes no sense. What is there to think about? The only thing she wants me to be is a doctor and I can assure you that I'll never be some rich doctor, because doctors...well, do you think that they're healthy? I mean, I don't want to save lives, and I don't want to be a doctor. But anyway, she seems to think, heeey if you won't be a doctor, marry a guy who'll be a doctor. She's had this conversation with my mum before, telling her to make sure i marry a guy who's a doctor. My grandma is totally crazy, like my whole dad's side of the family. They dont' listen to anyone. Like my dad will tell me to think about something, but my reply never satifies him, so why does he tell me to think about something in the first place? It's completely ridiculous.

My dad is just like his parents I think. Almost. Okay not exactly, he's not as mean as my grandpa, who is really just....hm, I dunno. Let's just say that one of my cousins told him that he hated him, and I don't blame him really. Then again two fo my cousins have had a worse life than mine, in a more strict household that is. That sucks. Then again they'll have successful lives, most likely. I don't think it's any of my grandma's business to tell me what to do, even my own parents wouldn't tell me what to be when i grow up, at least not my mum. My grandma, she doens't have a great life really, but I don't see the point of feeling sorry for her because her husband sucks. Ugh, I dunno. You'd have to be in my family to understand I guess. Every family has it's quirks, right? And all this crap about marrying a doctor, it's like she wants to arrange my marriage...it's just like in the Joy Luck Club with all those women marrying into terrible marriages. Sort of. Okay...not really, but geez.

My grandpa and my dad are coming here on Friday. Fun. This'll suck.

August 27, 2001

I got this Bjork reminder that Vespertine comes out tomorrow, and the e-mail also says that Radiohead's new single comes out (Knives Out) tomorrow...thats funny, I guess a lot of Bjork fans are Radiohead fans. Which is true. A nice reminder, I'll go buy that. I mean, them.

I ate at a nice Greek restaurant for dinner. I had lamb over orzo in this tomato sauce...yum. And the dessert was funky too. I forget what it was but it was nice. Mm.

I watched two movies today...haven't been to the video store in ages, but I wanted to see the Joy Luck Club to refresh my memory (from last night..hm) and the movie was good, a very good adaptation of the book. Sad, but nice, yeah. I also saw Requiem For a Dream which is a totally freaky kind of movie, not as freaky as Dancer in the Dark but kind of like that. Actually, not really. I'm okee, not totally shocked from it. Good acting though. I didn't know Marlon Wayans was in it, kind of weird ot see him in any non comedic role, you know? Maybe he should just stick to drama. I've never seen any movie with Jared Leto in it before but he was good...Jennifer Connelly was good too. Ellen Burstyn was pretty freaky to see, cos I watched "That's Life" every time I remember too (it's a really cute show) and she's just this nice mom who's...yeah...not crazy, in this movie she's totally like...yikes.

Okeee, that's all I can say. I guess I should have first said what the movie was about...well these four people, they're drug addicts, and the movie pretty much shows how drugs totally destroy their lives, woop. I wonder if all that stuff in the movie was realistic, if it was, that's just freaky.

But ANYWAAAY, laaadeedah, listening to Even right now, foofah, fun. Tomorrow I shall get Vespertine, be full of Bjork happiness. You shoudl secure yourself a copy too. The Knives Out single also comes out, but it's more important that you get Vespertine, because you won't be disappointed. And if you are, you can't be my friend, NAHAHA! Hehe..um..really, I'm serious...
Jesus, I feel stupid. This girl on ICQ is messaging me and saying we took the bus together when I was in Taiwan, and I don't remember her at all. She was in a grade lower than me, but GOD why can't I remember? I looked in the yearbook and I don't recognize her. Sigh. Well. My memory sucks crap.
Okay, I was just testing to see if this works or not, cos yesterday I tried a few times to update this and it wouldn't work at all. Not that I had anything important to say.

Last night I had a weird dream. It was in a few parts, but in ONE part, Even Johansen was in it. Haha! Except he was my guitar teacher or something. He was sitting on my bed playing with my stuffed animals. Now if that isn't messed up, I dunno what is. Another part, Anthony was in it...my mum and I were at some kind of museum store and Anthony was telling us to be quiet, or telling me to be quiet, cos I was shouting, and he said I had a guitar lesson the next day. Whaaa? And then in the last part my mum and I were shopping in a department store, and I wanted something but my mum said we could get it in Taiwan, so...I dunno what that was supposed to mean.

I don't supposed anyone would want to buy be Fruityloops? I'd love you for it..hehe.

AHH I almost forgot (again), it's my birthday! I'm 16. Yay. It's not a big deal at all, birthdays suck. I'm not doing anything special today, but I did get to open my present, which is this Radiohead desktop thing. It comes with 6 singles, a mousepad, a tshirt, a radio, and it comes in a nice box. The radio is definitely the weirdest thing, when I saw the box I thought it looked pretty small, and it's about a fourth of the size of the boc. Tiiiny. It doesn't have a volume control! Who's idea was that. There's two buttons, one for seek and one for reset. All I know is that if I press the seek button four times I'll be listening to WFUV, they were playing David Gray, hehe. And the dj said they were gonna play Rufus Wainwright, but I didn't feel like listening anymore..oo well, I can listen to Rufus whenever I want! :D

I have a feeling I'm going to break that radio really soon...I'll take a picture of everything at some point.

My mum is sleeping. She stayed up late watching "Sleepy Hollow"...I stayed up reading "The Joy Luck Club" which is on my summer reading list. Now I have to make note cards and crap. Poop. I thought it was a good book, but pretty depressing most of the time. The stories are sad! I mean some stuff is happy, but mainly sad. It's definitely worth reading though. It's not a book that makes me really think though, not like "Ender's Game" or "Ender's Shadow"...those were weiiird.
HELLO

August 25, 2001

I just watched the music video for "Come To Daddy" by Aphex Twin, and that was probably the freakiest music video I've ever seen. Really creepy. The song is ALREADY scary, but the video has got like lots of little kids running around that look like Alex and then in the end there's this really skinny dude who looks like him and he's screaming and stuff, and the kids are destroying stuff. KIDS are evil. Yup. That's the message that I got.

And now I'm listening to True Love Waits, which Radiohead played recently at a concert...very nice song, although I like the other recording of it better..mm. Well in an interview Thom was talking about True Love Waits because I think someone asked if they'd be recording it and still doesn't seem like they'll be releasing a studio version of it. Foof................................okay, now the song is over...screaming commences...some guy just said "I LOVE YOU" or "WE LOVE YOU" possibly, hmmm. :)
I finished my Even Johansen site...I think. Hopefully it's not too much is messed up. Eh. I haven't even finished the Plone site yet, cos I'm not sure about

I haven't done much else today. I didn't eat much since I've got GIRL CRAMPS and yeah, no fun. Poop.

I'm watching a movie right now...I dunno what it's called, but Geena Davis is in it and she's like this crazy assassin dude, kind of freaky...yeah. Samuel Jackson is in it too, he's like...hm, not sure what he's playing...oo Geena Davis is a major bad-ass, HAHAHA jeez....now there are flames everywhere, yikes...

...this is sad isn't it? (sad in a pathetic sort of way)...


How weird is THAT? Hehe! Bjork looks so funny...
god..dammit...i wrote stuff...and then my net connection crapped and I lost what I wrote. not that was important anyway, it never is, but i still hate it, it's just more crap i have to put up with. foofoOFOOFoasdf!!jnsfdknawljgoop.
Grr why do I always feel like people are lying to me? Okay...maybe I lied, not ALWAYS...not really everyone, but am I really that paranoid? Like somtimes I want to be totally anonymous, like at the beck bbs, although I'd stopped going there since the beginning of the week, and then...grr I dunno. I'm so bored...kind of sad too right now. People should just tell me the truth. Poot.

But none of you lie to me, eh? So you're all okay. I'm chatting with Peter right now. No one else is on. I think something is wrong with AIM. Stupid poop. No one uses ICQ anymore. At only point I had like 50 people on my list. I didn't know most of em though, I must have been an idiot in 7th grade.

Every Even Johansen song makes me sleepy. This is bad. I've gotten used to the whole album and I think every song is great, but jesus christ arrgh I feel tired, but not really. It's like, FAKE tired. I think I'll listen to Lidibo right now, that's still Even singing, but it doesn't make me sleepy. Well he doesn't really sound the same here...

Gerg this is sad, I'm still typing, why doesn't someone stop mee?

August 24, 2001

I'm making a website for Even Johansen, so far its..um, brown, kind of like MUD or POO, you pick one. How sad! Mm well. He doesn't have the bright pink vibe of Plone, hehe.

I unearthed a remix I did of Mixed Bizness in..9th grade probably. It took me a million years to do, and it didn't even come out that good, but it could have been a lot worse...soo if you want to listen to it, click here. I also found this really bad song I made with Fruity Loops and Acid Music, but it makes weird sounds come out of my subwoofer, so that's cooool with meeee. Click here to listen to it..:)

Oh yes, you must also check out the Tralfalmadorian Market, made by me friend Rebbie. The happy dancing cat shirt is my favorite, but will I buy it? Only time will tell...neehahaaha!
I haven't done much today..mm...mmm..umm. Foof. I wrote stuff already but stupid IE..pooped it.

Now I am bitter. Well, you can listen to a nice interview with Thom and Ed here and you can listen to Bjork's new songs here. There's a rehearsal version of Pagan Poetry here...coooool song, yes, me love.

August 23, 2001

Oo what do you know, I took pictures! Of stuff. I ended up getting that baby toy I was talking about, so kyooot! And...um...I took out 100 bucks from the bank. I FINALLY got the Beck Travelogue book from Japan, it took two months and costed about $35! Yikes. I had no idea how much it was going to cost, could have been more! It's a cool book, lots of words...in Japanese...cannot read. Sad. And lots of pictures I've never esen before, awwwww, Beck!

But anyway...


There's a piccie of the toy i got...ISN'T IT KYOOT?! The green one makes bell sounds when you shake it. The blue one makes crinkly sounds, the pink one rattles, and the yellow one squeaks!


Now they're facing youuu!


Close up on the giant green dude!


Oo the babies are gathering around...


NEHEHEHE!

August 22, 2001

Woo, my color is...BLUE! Bloooo. Except for the first thing, they're pretty much true, no? :)

Blues Are Motivated By Altruism
Blues love to do nice things for others. They look for opportunities to give up something in order to bring another person happiness. Selflessness, rather than selfishness, is their guiding philosophy. Many Blues are uncomfortable doing things solely for themselves. They hold doors open for people, offer rides when someone's car breaks down, contribute to charities, even devote their entire lives to helping others.

Blues Seek Intimacy
More than anything else, Blues want to love and be loved. A true Blue will sacrifice a successful career to improve an important relationship. Once considered solely a female characteristic, this nurturing is more accurately understood as a Blue personality trait.

Blues Crave Being Understood
Blues are gratified when they are listened to, when they feel understood and appreciated. They are notorious for revealing their inadequacies, because they value being known and understood so much. In the eye of a Blue, being vulnerable is a small price to pay for the chance to connect emotionally. Blues may have their hearts broken more than most people, but they also spend much more time in love.

Blues Need To Be Remembered And Appreciated
With Blues, a simple pat on the back will not suffice. Blues expend such great effort in making the world a better place that sometimes they need to be told how wonderful they are. They need to be thanked and specifically remembered for their good deeds. They need sincere gratitude. They delight in being remembered on birthdays and other special days, especially if the rememberance is personal - a homemade anniversary card, a welcome home party, a special day that isn't on the calender. Blues need tender loving care.

Blues Are Directed By A Strong Moral Conscience
Blues are motivated to behave in a proper, appropriate manner. They have a moral code that guides them in their decision making, their value judgements, even their leisure time. Blues enjoy being "good." Of all the personality colors, Blues come equipped with the strongest sense of integrity. A Blue would rather lose that cheat. Blues are trustworthy. Ethically, Blues are the people who should be in positions of power, but seldom are.



AWWWWW! AWWHAEHHAERhiu!!!!MYGOD they're so cute! AHHEHEHHAAHHAAAA! But not as cute as the toy I was talking about..heehee.

It may be necessary for me to change the password in the near future. If you come to the board and find that the password has changed, please remember that the new password will be "asspants."

I thought this e-mail was funny..if you're wondering, the password is for a message board that I'm sure none of you go to anyway, and the password is to keep out unwanted visitors I suppose. Asspants...creative, no? :)

Right now I'm listening to "Overthrown" by Libido, nice song...woo...I just got this CD (Killing Some Dead Time) in the mail today, I bought it used for 6 bucks. As in, you can only get it used or something..it's not a very old CD, from 98, strange eh? Eh. It's not bad at all...woo!

Yikes, someone wrote a message at the board directly towards me....mm lots of Beck pictures, I guess I should take em...weeeee!

I was at the Hallmark store today and they had the CUTEST baby toy I've ever seen in my whole life...really, I want to go back and buy it! $21 in exchange for simple happiness. It's hard ot describe, but I'll try...they're these blob things, 4 of them, and they're connected by velcro. The first one is green and SOO CUTE, happy and stuff, and it makes sounds when you shake it...each one makes it's own sound and is a different color, and it's just so cute, I can hardly stand it. My mum said she'd buy it for me...she's too nice...but I think I'll take some money out of the bank and pay off my debt and buy that thing, good, no?

I got a bday present in the mail today from Karen (THANKS!) and it's really cool, a giant pen with a floatee duck in it, and this tiny snowglobe thing. Like, it's not solid, its' squishy like the WATER WEINERS if anyone knows what those are, and inside there's something which is a cross between a duck and a dolphin. It's really funny! I'll take a picture of it later...
Gee I've been posting a lot...poot.

I didn't want to wake up so early today...at 10:30 AM...but there were two voices in my head; You're tired, keep sleeping!...YOUR INTESTINES ARE GOING TO XPLODE!

Since I didn't want intestine-explodee, I got up and walked to the bathroom while simultaneously wiping the crap out of my eyes and holding my glasses, that takes skill when you're half conscious. I was planning to go back to sleep afterwards, but then I was pretty wide-awake...argh.

Björk concert. Omg it was so great. Well the first third was horrible - they set up a video screen of someone piercing themselves with a needle, (in the sadistic and non body art sense) and sawed iron birdcages and did horrible things - we almost left. And then after an hour Björk came on. It was so amazing....... Ive never felt so touched by music before in my life!

First I was thinking "Huuh? That sounds freeeeaky..." but that must have been Matmos, cos they were using sounds from..um...weird stuff I think? I don't think I'd like Matmos much, I listened to some songs, but then again they were pretty involved with Vespertine...mmwell. Poop poop poop. That guy didn't even knooow about Bjork's concerts in France, and managed to buy tickets from eBay for $100 each, ARGghhhHHhHGageaggrAe I want tickets. I am angerryyyy...or...something.
I just remembered something else I saw in NY today...when passing by this place having construction with "POST NO BILLS" written everywhere, someone replaced the P with an M, replaced N with C and added PS, and replaced B with K and crossed out S. A lot of work to convey a not entirely correct message, but yeah, cops kill people...
Right now I'm listening to "Directions" by Josh Rouse, and when he says direction it sounds way too much like erection, I swear. I mean I know he's not saying that, but if you download the song then maybe you'll see what i mean, if I didn't know what the song was called then I'd be pretty confused. He played that song on Conan a long ago, and I'm like "Why is he singing a song about erections?"

...now that I have that cleared up, I feel better. :)


I didn't know smiley faces even HAD butts, but there ya go...a mooning smiley!
I found this at the bjork message board, kind of...interesting?

Unless you drop your personality you will not be able to find your individuality. Individuality is given by existence; personality is imposed by the society. Personality is social convenience. Society cannot tolerate individuality, because individuality will not follow like a sheep. Individuality has the quality of the lion; the lion moves alone. The sheep are always in the crowd, hoping that being in the crowd will feel cozy. Being in the crowd one feels more protected, secure. If somebody attacks, there is every possibility in a crowd to save yourself. But alone? - only the lions move alone.

And every one of you is born a lion, but the society goes on conditioning you, programming your mind as a sheep. It gives you a personality, a cozy personality, nice, very convenient, very obedient. Society wants
slaves, not people who are absolutely dedicated to freedom. Society wants slaves because all the vested interests want obedience.


Um...yeah I dunno what to say about that, I thought about it and then my head hurt. Oh well.

Also at the mesasge board, someone asked how tall Thom is (in the off topic section that is) and someone replied "4 feet hehehe"...maah! :P And someone else said "yea, he is quite small. like, 5'6 or something like that." AHH god well for a guy I guess that's small? Actually, 6 inches isn't that much taller than me is it...wait..hm.
I was reading Melanie's latest diary entry and I thought it was interesting so I hope she doesn't mind me commenting on it here.

[lyrics to "What It Feels Like For A Girl" by Madonna...I don't feel like putting them all here]

I think this song does a good job of explaining some of the problems girls have in their hearts. I can relate to the tears falling secretly, and hurting inside. It's hard to be a girl. You have to deal with being more sheltered than your guy friends are. You feel pressure to look good for guys. You have to deal with low-confidence, bad-hair/face/body/mood/dressed days. PMS can be very unpredictable, and trick you of your normal feelings. The monthly curse. Even when you get a boyfriend, you have to work hard and make sure he still finds you irresistably attractive (physically & mentally) after some time of going out

I'm not sure about what being more sheltered than guys friends mean, but I only have like..2 or 3 guy friends...who dont live here! So...hmm...I dunno. I don't feel any pressure to look good for guys. My mum tells me to look nice in general to the outside world, you'd think I look like a bum! I don't really get PMS, which is good, no? As for "the monthly curse" that's the most annoying thing about being a girl, and if I ever had a boyfriend and I'd have to work hard to be "attractive" and crap, then I wouldn't even like him, so nevermind, that situtation doesn't even exist...

Why is it that sleazy females are looked down upon, whereas sleazy males are revered as studs? Take a certain female 2003-er from TAS (no, not 2c!) and a certain 2001 male graduate (who has an ego the size of the TAS swimming pool) as examples. Lots of people, male and female alike, all look down on the female, while countless girls flock around the male, ooh-ing and ahh-ing over him. (I'll admit that, as a freshman, I used to be one of those girls. I didn't flock around him, but I did admire from afar. :) YUCK, what the f*** was I thinking?!?!)

Yeah, that's stupid, I hate the double standard..it's just mean! Society sucks. I would look down at sleazy females AND males, if I knew any I think.

It is frustrating to be a girl. You get earlier curfews, and you can't take taxis at night without the lingering fear that you might get kidnapped, raped or robbed. Or at least I know I feel that way, but that's my mom's brainwashing on how unsafe Taiwan is. I guess everything to her is dangerous, seeing how we originate from Singapore.

I dont have a curfew...whats that? Not that I need one, I don't go out anywhere..hahahAHAHha...uh...that's not funny. I think Taiwan is relatively safe compared to other...cities? Places? I don't remember ever feeling uncomfortable in Taiwan, I would go out pretty late with my mum and there were hardly any people around, but places were still open and...stuff.

And of course, looking good for guys (not that I really care about THIS anymore, haha)... you want to pique interest, but not the type that goes along the lines of "How did she get THAT desperate?". But in the end, it doesn't really matter. Most guys will never stop checking girls out, even if they've got girlfriends, or wives for that matter. But I guess that all links back to how girls feel more pressured than guys do to look good, and that only means that we're succeeding.

Girls feel more pressured than guys? Hm...yeah I guess that's true, I don't, but then again guys are also concerned about their looks, especially the hair, don't you think? Like lots of guys seem to be into coloring their hair and putting gel in it, WHY I don't know, they look pretty stupid...me, I just brush me hair....um, yup. As for checking out other girls, I see this just as human nature, as long as they don't cheat on their girlfriend/wife. I would think girls are just as likely to look at other guys as guys would in a relationship...maybe...okay, I really don't know, just a guess.

I'd actually really like to be a guy for a day, and see what it is that makes them so ga-ga when they see a random, pretty girl. Being a girl, I think it's rather pathetic that guys can be so shallow, following a girl around just because she's pretty. Yet, I can see why guys are more crazy after girls, than girls are crazy for boys, cuz females are a lot more beautiful than males are. :) Heh, and that's not supposed to offend anyone, cuz it IS the truth, isn't it? We get the hourglass figures, oomphs in all the right places, and it doesn't matter if we're petite. :P LOL.

I don't think I'd ever want to be a guy. Um..hm..nope. I can't imagine going ga ga over a random, pretty girl, but maybe because I AM a girl...and girls are just as shallow, I learned this all throughout hig shcool that girls are terrible, although in a different way from guys. At my cafeteria table, some of the girls would point to some random guy and be like "HE'S HOT!" while I tried to digest my probably indigestible school lunch. In my opinion it's kind of stupid to point out every attractive person, but lots of girls are into this I guess...

Do you guys think it's possible to want to dress to impress oneself, and only oneself? I mean, I will be completely honest here, sometimes I like to dress in a certain way to make myself feel attractive. But is it completely possible to please oneself without the underlying knowledge that you are probably turning heads as well?

I'd say yes..wait..no..wait...yes. Yes?
I went to NY today, woo! My mum and I got tickets to se Blast, which is a show with...um..stuff! I'll describe it later..maybe.

First, we went to Chinatown. Yeah, crowded. We didn't have much time so we ate at this place called Singapore Cafe...mm..yay! They have yumyum food, but we got too much. It was pretty cheap so I didn't know there'd be so much food, but there was....it was really good though! Lets see...really good dumplings, yummy eggrolls, and my beef curry noodles were goood. It was pretty spicy, but not so spicy to make my eyes water. If it was any spicier, it'd be too much. The soup was like drinking curry, it was really weird...in my opinion, but nice and warm feeling, MMFOOD! We also went to a bakery and my mum got me a milky drink (yeah, milk is bad..well...oops, there probably wasn't much milk in it anyway..lots o SUGAR) with tapioca and red bean, kind of like something I'd get in Taiwan. Same thing with beef noodles. BEEF! Beefbeef. Weird word.

Then we went to the show, it was cool. It's like a percussion/brass/color guard thing. Lots of drums! It's kind of funny, like the guys were looking reall full fo themselves...it was supposed ot be funny, not like they were actually really into themselves, but yeah. At one point the horn players came into the audience, some woudl just sit down next to someone. And there was a part when a bunch of dudes were playing digeridoos and they were standing on the seats, hmmm. The color guard was really good, at one point they were twirling the batons in the dark cos they lit up...yellooow...and I'm thinking how they manage not to screw up. It looked really cool, trust me. The other really cool part was when two of the dummers were "dueling" and chasing each other and stuff..and then LOTS of dummers came out..and their sticks glowed and all the lights were turned off. And they were all in a line side by side playing their drums and the person's next to them...yeah! Another funny part was when this pudgy dude was running around the stage and doing silly things..hm. :)

After the show my mum and I walked to Radio City and I took a picture of the marquee (is that the right word?) where it said "BJORK W/ORCHESTRA AND CHOIR" or something, so I have some sort of momento...:(

August 20, 2001

Someone DID die at the Liberty State Park Radiohead concert on the 16th. Look here. Kind of sad, a 19 year old guy who had a seizure...and they don't know the cause of his death. That's freaky, just collapsed? Hm. Says there was no evidence of drug use, so that's...a plus? I dunno. When I die I want a "speaker" at my funeral, like in "Ender's Game" (actually more like in the book "Speaker For the Dead") although I guess I'd need to tell someone my story first. Oh well, not like I'm gonna die tomorrow...
The song "Frosti" is coool! It's Bork, by the way. Okay, I won't download ANYMORE new Bjork songs...it's just that she was playing it on a music box or something?...and I wanted to hear it. :)

Hear this. Byerk! Hehe. For a second she sounds Scottish, or maybe a few seconds...reminds me of Fran, no? It's those "r"s, heehee. When Bjork was talking it sounded kind of unnatural, although that could just be my opinion. Or maybe she was just pacing herself so people could understand her, that makes sense. :)
Woo, I had a yummy dinner! My mum and I went to an Indian and Thai food restaurant. I had this really good...um...oh yeah, curry chicken puff thing. There was this really good sweet sauce to dip it in. It looked like water. And then the entree was more curry chicken, but different curry. I'm so full...I think I might barf...I'd rather not. Actually, I also had dessert too, this Indian pistachio ice cream, although it's not really like ice cream. That was yummy. And some mango ice cream. Okay, I ate a LOT, so this is why I feel like barfing.

I spent more moolah too. I couldn't find The Times with the special Bjork CD, but I got NME with Travis on the cover, oo lookit em, they're so happy! I also got Urb with Bjork on the cover and the new Adbusters, which I haven't gotten to look at too much, but yeah fun magazine. On one page of the magazine they had a map of...some plac in the US, I don't know where, but there were McDonalds logos ALL over it, it was really scary. I can't believe there are so many McDonalds. And on the next page they listed the ingredients in a McDonalds hamburger, and really, you wouldn't want to eat it if you read it I think. No more McDonalds for me.

Another funny thing in the magazine was in the letters section, this dude wrote that he made clear labels which had various stuff written on it, like "Milk is bad for you blah blah milksucks.com" and put them on food and Coca Cola cases, I'm suprised that he wouldn't caught. At most I think I'd put one on label on a milk carton, and I doubt I would. But milk is pretty bad...yup. Go to that website if you still don't believe me...
No Bjork tickets. Maybe it will sink in later. Then again, I already prepared myself for the worse, so maybe it's not so bad? Times like this I wish I was a millionaire...um...well, not really, but there's always eBay. Hehe...nooo. That's where I got Beck tickets! Beck. Eeeeerrr/

August 19, 2001

This doesn't really look like Thom:


At least I don't think so...it's funny though! :)



Ah, THAT'S Thom!
Björkee tickets on sale tomorrow! Crap!



Look it's Björk playing a magical music box and wearing a black swan dress...er..something! Don't you wanna be there? Hehe.


Hehe...look at Domokun!



Oh my..he got bigger, eh?



...yeah, that's scary!
I was looking at Wired magazine today since it had stuff about Japan, and one of the things in the mag was a picture of a Hello Kitty vibrator and...douche. But apparently Sanrio doesn't make Hello Kitty envelope openers, cos they don't want to make sharp things. Who would buy a Hello Kitty vibrator was my first question. And I have a My Melody pair of scissors, that's sharp! HMMmmmMMMmmMmMmMMmmmMmm

My bro is leaving for college tomorrow! How sad! Right? Only me and my mum in this house. Sigh.
Look at my DNA strand:

It looks better if you copy+paste it into Notepad or something...:)

August 18, 2001

I GOT THE RUFUS TICKETS!

The seats are pretty nice I think, $34 per ticket. Lookie:



I got seats in the right part (actually the left, but in the picture...) in the G section, kind of near the last row of the G section but still nice, eh? So it's kind of like this:



But somewhat closer. Hm.

August 17, 2001

Someone taped a bit of the MSG Radiohead show. It's really bad quality, but if you're interested, you can download it here.
You know something weird? But not really that weird? I put my foot against the inside of my desk, where it's real cold, and then it felt hot after I took my foot off...i mean not really, but I know your senses can get all confused so when you touch something cold it feels hot..yeah well, ouch.
Boy, today was pointless! I woke up at around 2, read a bit...ate...stayed on the internet for a few hours. What am I doing? I haven't even been outside today! Yikes.

I DID get something in the mail today though, two CDs that I bought from someone in England. I got two singles for Sexxlaws and Sexy Boy...$7, not too bad, right? It's funny, the guy who I bought them from didn't have paper so he wrote a small note on the back of a London Underground ticket. It's nice, not like I'm ever going to England, right? :)

I'm kind of hungry. I definitely ate enough today. Not as much as yesterday, but still enough...hmph.
A good song to listen to anytime: Tricky Disco. It's a remix..by plone. I dunno what the song is supposed to sound like but I love this song, it makes my table shake. Hoooraah for subwoofers.

Hyper-ballad also makes the table woobly, but not as much. Unless I turn the volume up a lot. And it's not as much fun.

None of my friends are online now. Well, usually no one is on. I used to be able to count on Taiwan people to be on now, but they've started school, what a poo. I need to make friends with people in the right time region, so that when I'm on in the wee hours of the morning someone else will be on...actually, it's not that important that I have someone to talk to cos I usually don't anyway. Hm. Maybe I should talk to afrodog..."woof!"

I have to pee again. My butt still hurts. Ow. Need softer toilet paper...but it's already pretty cushy. I bet in heaven people have great toilet paper made from...poofy clouds or something. Actually that wouldn't make much sense...

I was at mello's journal and she wrote a bunch of goals for the upcoming year..and..hm, I have no goals. I mean I could make some up, but I probably wouldn't do em. In 9th grade my English class wrote an essay about our goals, just three goals, and I didn't do any of em. I got an A on the essay though.

My hair feels funny. Funnier than usual. It's a lump of crap, but I just washed it last night and maybe the shampoo did some weiiirrd things, chemical reactions not reacting correctly, because it's kind of stiff. Then again, hair is just dead crap anyway, right? Sometimes I think it's so silly seeing all these commercials about infusing your hair with 12 vitamins and bringing out the shine and..whatever. Yeah, hair is kind of dead, you can't bring it back to life.

Has anyone noticed how a lot of the women's fashion magazines have stepped into teenage territory? Teen Vogue? Cosmogirl? Elle Girl? Actually I'm not sure if Elle Girl exists, but something-girl...are there more teenagers than before, or do we just have a lot more money to spend? Probably lots of money. I don't see why there needs to be 20 different magazines for teenage girls. When I was in the dentist's office the other day, I picked up an issue of seventeen and it's totally mind numbing. Why is american culture so infatuated with clothings and trends and makeup and celebrities? That's probably a stupid question...it's not just american culture, but it's so sad. Then again, I might just be as bad off as everyone else. I mean, I read Rolling Stone and Spin, which aren't really my favorite magazines but they're okay.

I got my Air documentary DVD today: Eating Sleeping Waiting and Playing. It was cool, quite different from Meeting People is Easy at least. Not so serious and daaark and glooomy. It'd be cool if Radiohead make a different tour video...more behind the scenes. That's what the Air one was like, showing them waking up in a hotel room, chatting backstage, being grilled at press junkets, walking around the tour bus. I mean, I like music and all, but the other stuff is cool too. The DVD also had the music videos, and my favorite was Kelly Watch The Stars, although Sexy Boy was funny too. In KWTS, Nicolas and JB (I'll never call him Jean Benoit again..hahahaha!) are playing Pong as a tennis table match goes on between Kelly and...um, someone else. Yeah it's pretty weird. But it's just so funny because Nicolas and JB are SO into the game, and they're so adorable. HAHA LOOKIT EM PLAYING POOOONG! It's a riot.

But Sexy Boy definitely has it's moments...Nicolas and JB walking around NYC in safari gear. How cute. I should make a t-shirt that says "I *heart* MOON" like the monkey. I thought they sold those somewhere, but...I dont' remember where, so maybe I was wrong. Hm. The stuffed animal monkey is cute.

So yeah, still have to pee. I should do that...grr...still no one online.
God, I'm tired. Is there no intelligent life out there?
Mmm, I had yumyum dinner. My mum and I ate at this restaurant that was very health oriented...not like vegetarian, but like..um...well made stuff? Eh. The dinner specials came with soup, bread, salad, and two sides in addition to the actual meal, so when the actual meal CAME I couldn't eat that much. It was yummy though. And now I'm hungry. But should I go eat the leftovers? SHOULD I? TELL MEEE! My brain is so feeble and weak...

My bum is all alone.

August 16, 2001

My teeth are nice and clean! Victoryyyyy!

I had filet mignon for dinner today. That was my early b-day dinner I think. It was nice and yumyum. I haven't had any kind of steak in a long time...meat, it's tasty!

I've been working on my Plone site. It's not finished, just that first page. Yee..Plone! Wonderful, no?

Where is the rest of my family? Yeesh. Well I guess I should go soon...I want to finish reading Ender's Shadow, it's really good! I dunno if it's better than Ender's Game...probably not, but it's different. Well I'm reading this book a lot faster...hmm.

August 15, 2001

This is for Rebbie:



[if you've got a crappo connection like me, that image may take a while to load...for instance, I'm uploading it right now and it's taking me 5 minutes or so. IT'S 85 KB FOR CHRIST'S SAKE!]

It's not very good, especially cos my hand made a big shadow when I was removing the afro, but you get the idea right? :)

Here's the transcript for Politically Incorrect...if you're interested in reading it (probably not).
HAHA! It comes with PLUSH RICE! Now that is weird, even I think so...

JESUS, THIS IS SO SICKENLY CUTE!

Ain't it? HAHA! Man. Wait, THIS is cute! He has FLOTATION DEVICE! ...this is kind of sad. I think Kogepan is just..sad...cos he's burnt. Or something. What a sad snow-thing!

This is just as weird as the plush rice thing. The tempura looks like sponges, don't they? I haven't had tempura in a while...
Cristen told me that in Who Wants To Be A Millionaire, the $32,000 question was "What popular rock band released a acclaimed album in 2000 entitled Kid A?" and 85% of the audience guessed LIMP BIZKIT?! Even if they didn't know the name of the album, the "critically accalimed" part shoudl have told them "NOT limp bizkit"...I mean, they're not. NOOoo. FOR CHRIST'S SAKE this is sad!

Anyway. Interested in hearing on of Aphex Twin's new songs? Click here.

Toodaaay my mum and I went to NY to see Riverdance. For me, it was the 4th time...for my mum, the 5th. It's much better up close, you can see their facial expressions, and I found out that when they're all dancing they do a lot of "woo!"-ing and stuff, kind of like to encourage each other I guess. They look like they're having lots of fuuun! Yee. Smiley and stuff...it's nice!

And I had REALLY GOOD fried calamari...man, I've been eating a lot lately! But my weight has been evening out, hey I fit into my pants that I couldn't really fit into before. NAARG! Anyway...fresh fried calamari is so yummy, it's not chewy and...yeah. Cos frozen is like that, you chew it for ages, but this stuff was yumyum. AND I GOT CREME BRULEE! My faavorite! Mm!

After the show, tons of people went to wait in line at the parking garage so my mum and I went to China Fun and got 4 different types of dumplings. It was like past midnite and people were still coming in to eat, which is okay I guess, but still, why are they eating dinner so late? I dunno. And THEN we went to Starbucks for the first time in..a while, and I got a caramel brownie frapuccino, and it was yumnumnum.

So my tummy is happy and full of stuff!

August 14, 2001

I was listening to Svefn-g-englar, I almost forgot what a pretty song it was...I haven't listened to Sigur Rós in a while. I was watching the music video, which isn't really new but every time I've tried ot watch it before it just sucked, and I tried again, and it still sucked, but hey that's about as good as it's gonna get. :)
I have to get one thing off my mind before I keep forgetting...I read that Idioteque is pronounced "idiotic" and...well, that sounds stupid, but do I know really? I've always pronounced it like discotheque. If I actually refered to it as Idiotic, no one would know what I'm talkin about, you know? Neh.
Yoo guess what, I got meself an AFRODOG! Actually it's called Afroken...or sometimes Afrodog, man I dunno. I saw some very cute stationary at Kinokuniya. They also had an issue of Rockin On that had some stuff about Bjork and Radiohead but i didn't have enough money...hey, if I bought it I wouldn't have my AFRODOGGIE! I haven't given him a real name...but here are some pictures: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6

Ain't be kyoot? Yup. Arf.

I watched Rufus on Politically Incorrect...he too, is kyoot. Until the first commercial break he didn't talk ("Rufus...TALK!") but then he started talking when the topic turned from stem cell research to AIDS and homosexuality and such stuff (cos he's a homosexual...hm)...anyway this reverend dude was talking about how homosexuality is against nature, or SOMETHING weird like that, and it was ridiculous really. He was talking about how you can die from homosexuality and well you can die from a lot of things, it doesn't prove anything, and I wanted him to shut up, but oh well. Some parts were pretty funny, especially when he was talking about the parts not fitting (use your imagination, okay?) and Rufus said "Oh, they fit!" or something like that...it was funny, although it was also like "I didn't need to hear that..." NAHAH Rufus. He's funny.

You know who would be good on Politically Incorrect, but probably never be in it? Thom. THOM! He's outspoken, right? He could go nuts...he could controool everything, naa! That would be funny...or scary, I'm not sure. I think he could get pretty into that stuff. Hm.

August 13, 2001

I'm listening to the Wallflowers now. Isn't that strange? I was just thinking "Hey it'd be nice to listen to the Wallflowers now..."

Mm, yup. It's very weird listening to the Wallflowers, I can't really explain it, but...neh!

Last night I finished reading Ender's Game, I think it was a really good book, and the ending is just realllllly weird, so go read it! I've actually got an extra copy, so if anyone wants it...

Rufus Wainwright is going to be on Politically Incorrect tonight, so don't let me forget. I kept fogetting all weekend...and then I almost forgot today was Monday, so yeah I should watch that. I dunno if I need to record it...neh probably not.

If anyone wants to be nice and get me something for my birthday, there are two things I'd like: a Sigur Rós t-shirt and this Even Johansen CD...it's on sale! For some reason I couldn't find the CD on amazon.com, I thought they had everthing! Hmph.

YEAAH SOO that's it.

August 12, 2001

I thought this was funny...it's from a bit about the Beta Band touring with Radiohead:

They couldn’t afford roadies either and MacLean said that problem was solved by, "Radiohead help us out with roading. They move a lot of our equipment on stage for us. Thom Yorke carries Steve’s [Mason] guitar on stage every night for him. They’re quite muscly. You wouldn’t think it, but Thom Yorke’s a tough wee guy."

HE'S A TOUGH WEE GUY..nehaha I can laugh, right? I mean, I don't doubt that Thom has muscles, but it just sounds funny, don't it? Oo well, the full article is here. Chart Attack even made Thom the photo of the week, that's nice! :)

I got this funny e-mail today:

you signed my guestbook. i have your ip now. mahhhahah i can go kill you.

just dont think about it. i was just joking. but you did sign my guestbook...because...you love me! i know. word


At least I thought it was funny.

I dont think this is a very nice review of the RH concert. These other ones aren't so bad: 1 | 2 | 3.

Apparently the Beta Band played Dry The Rain at the concert, although I definitely missed that. It's a nice song, really. Then again it's the only one of their songs that I listen to.

At Warp Records, you can sign up on the mailing list and then sometime later you'll get a URL to listen to the whole new Aphex Twin album...YAY!...I'm the only one that finds that exciting, eh? Should be interesting..mm..well.
Remind me to get this book.

Anyway, today I saw Riverdance with my mum and Aliza. I'm seeing it again on Tuesday, actually, but anyway, it's always a good show.

October 3, TRAIVS is playing at Radio City! Yeah, I wanna go! And the next day is BJORK! Man. I wanna go to both! Maybe my mum will be nice and let me. Mm? Mm.

Oh anywa...in NY I saw a dude...not just any dude, this dude was wearing a RADIOHEAD SHIRT! If I was drunk or on drugs, I would have wanted to hug him or something, but neh, my heart stopped for a second and I said "DUDE WITH RADIOHEAD SHIRT!" Yeah. And we made our way to the Japanese restauran for dinner..I ate EEL!

And now I'm here. Full o eel.
Ahh! Steph didn't get to see Radiohead! That's so sad...*sniff*...I weep for you, Stephaanniiiieeee! Outdoor venues can groove my butt!

Anyway. I haven't really done anything today. Except gain two pounds. Hopefully those will shed away as I sleep...go away!

August 11, 2001

I wasted the whole day...isn't that sad? Well tomorrow I'm going to NY to see Riverdance again...yeah, my mum really wants to see it NOW! Aliza is coming too, oo.

I got to eat a real dinner today. My family went out for a buffet...yeah, meat and rice is tasty.

You can look at my record collection, or at least some of it. I can't remember everything off the top of my head. Then again I only listen to a few albums...but ooowell.
Lookie, I made a page just for the concerts I go to...nice, no?

And that's what I've done today. I need to take a shower, man.

August 10, 2001

Who in GOD'S NAME found my site by searching "sigur ros gay jonsi"?! That's wrong! Eek. Some other strange ones:

"i hate michael flatley"
"thom and noah and yorke"
"A&F-Quarterly pictures"

Hm.

Chech out my Yahoo! profile. It's weird, isn't it? "I command you to make me a pastry puff!"...what the hell is THAT about? I wrote that? I must have done this a long time ago..yeesh.
me sad!

My mum won't let me see Sigur Ros. Sigh. There are 12 North America tour dates and I can't see any...oh wah. She doesn't think my dad will approve...well DUH, but I don't like him. I mean, no one really likes my dad. He's not mean, he's just got this whole frame of mind that's really...well, stupid. There's probably a better word...unreasonable. Yeah, and illogical. But my mum doesn't want to drive me to NY either I guess, and the Bjork concert at Radio City is on October 4-5, while Sigur Ros is September 24, so they're kind of close. And I'd rather see Bjork cos I haven't seen her in concert, but Sigur Ros is playing at a venue with SEATS, and it's not general admission, and SMOKING ISN'T ALLOWED in the Beacon Theater I think, which is really nice compared to Irving Plaza. But...sigh. I want sum Jonsi action!

Anyway. I'm really selfish, I know, but I'm really disappointed. Maybe Cristen can somehow go to the concert without me...hm.

Well, my day is ruined...it's 2 AM, but maybe the rest of the day, because I have absolutely nothing planned for today. I scanned about 40 photos of Radiohead cookies and Radiohead CONCERT and such stuff, I'll be making a nice page for that which you can see later. About three of the pictures of the concert came out okay. Most of them are blue, it's freaky.

I think I'll listen to this Even Johansen song again, because it's kind of sad sounding. I'm having a hard time finding his songs, there were only two on Audiogalaxy and I downloaded both of em. I couldn't find anything on Morpheus (I like Audiogalaxy a lot more, really) and there are hardly any webpages with any info bout STUFFFF so POOPPOOPPOOPPPPPOOOOOOoeoeoo...

The debut solo album from Libido’s Even Johansen may be called Quiet and Still (FiveOneInc.), but beneath the misty melodies lies a distinct restlessness. Johansen’s voice recalls that of Thomas Yorke and, like the Radiohead leadman, Johansen writes lyrics that exhibit discontent, or at least discomfort, with life, love and/or the modern world.

I've never heard Thom refered to as Thomas...really, that's the first time I think. WEIRD, no? Yes. :) I can't find Even's songs on Audiogalaxy...I mean I got one, and there's another one but it's not downloading, ugh. Well.

Hey dudes, I wrote a nice commentary about the RADIOHEAD concert. RADIOHEAD IS GREAT GREAT GREAT! I guess I shouldn't advise you to see them if you're not a fan, it's really really WONDERFUL if you are though. Like I would bring anyone to...a Beck concert. But I dunno, Radiohead is like this whole other thing...well read my review!

And today I downloaded a song by Even Johansen called "Quiet and Still" and I really like it, so maybe you should download it, no? The song reminds me of Radiohead and Travis in some sense, and the guy's voice is pretty, so there!

And I'm done now...woo! RADIOHEAD HIIIGHHHH!
Radiohead: Madison Square Garden
August 7, 2001

I've never HAD this much fun!

...okay, that's a lie. But let's start from the beginning, shall we?

My mum, Cristen, and I took the bus into New York. It took two hours! Yikes! So that was from 5-7 that we were riding along in the bus. The concert started at 7:30...hm, and we still had to eat dinner. So after eating (I had a bread bowl of New England Clam Chowdah!) we got on the subway to Penn Station/Madison Square Garden.

The first place I had to go: the MERCHANDISE STATIONS! Woo-yeah, I got myself 3 t-shirts and a hooded shirt. Not all for myself, of course, two of them were for some special friends! :) Yeah, Radiohead stuff went fast, everyone had to get their hands on a $30 t-shirt...well I DID! There were like 15 different types of shirts. Well I might be wrong (I hate saying that now...I must burst into song!) but there were LOTS of em. They also had Beta Band and Kid Koala shirts, and Kid Koala CDs, and some posters. I wanted a poster, but I didn't get it, and it's okay really, cos I can make my own! One was a freaky Amnesiac drawing and the other was some art from Kid A, maybe there were more of them.

Anyway, on to our seats! The Beta Band was playing and they were quite cool. The lead dude was wearing a kimono! I think (well I had my binoculars/binox, so I could see quite well from my seats in section 132, smack dab in the middle...sort of). I didn't catch much of them playing cos we got there a bit late, but I quite liked them.

Next was Kid Koala, who at first I thought was some little kid or roadie or something, but he started palying stuff, he was cool, doing DJ...stuff. I prefer DJ Swamp, but then he was Beck's DJ, and I love Beck...hmm...

Then came the wait. The wait for the roadies to get stuff and do stuff, making everything niiice and perfect for Thom and his band of merry men. There were 4 or so men who climbed to the top of the stage, although I don't know what they were doing. They stayed there the whole show though.

And then out came RADIOHEAD! In the FLESH! I was in the same building as Radiohead! Whoa man, this is too much, much too much. Cue screaming....AHHHH! AHHH! AHHAHDH ITS THOOOM! HAHA ITS JONNY! oo PHIL! Eee it's ED! AWWW lookit Colin!" Yeah something like that. Cristen and I squealed like little piggies (gucci little piggies?) and had quite the fun fun time.

The first song they played was The National Anthem. I don't remember the order of all the songs, but I'll try and list them here by album:

Fake Plastic Trees
My Iron Lung
Street Spirit (Fade Out)
Paranoid Android
No Surprises
Climbing Up The Walls
Exit Music (For a Film)
Lucky
Karma Police
Everything In It's Right Place
Optimistic
How To Disappear Completely
Morning Bell
Idioteque
Packt Like Sardines in a Crushd Tin Box
I Might Be Wrong
Knives Out
Dollars and Cents
Pyramid Song
You And Whose Army
Follow Me Around
Permanent Daylight
Talk Show Host
There might have been more than that, or I might have stuck a song in, I don't know. But that's a lot. First of all, they played three encores...well the last encore they just played Exit Music, then again I thought they'd realyl leave after the second encore. "Goodnight! PLEASE LEAVE NOW!" Nah, Thom didn't say that, but he could have.

Before Packt Like Sardines in a Crushd Tin Box, Thom was talking about how we should all use electric cars cos the gas companies are a poo, or something like that. SOMETHING...man I dunno. But he was really into it. Get an electric car and maybe they'll get the idea, that was his message of sorts.

Thom dedicated some songs to some stuff, although I don't remember all of em. He said that Permanent Daylight was for New York or something...the New York song. I really wanted them to play Fog (aka Alligators in New York Sewers) but nope. Poo. But anyway, cool song, yup. Another song was dedicated to "the leopard skins walkign down 5th avenue" or SOMETHING like that, not totally sure, and something else was dedicated to some..thing...protestors in Germany? Okay I could be WAY off, I probably am.

Idioteque was really the coolest thing. Thom went nuts, with the flailing arms and wiggling and fwooping around the stage. Actually, he did that on a few accounts, but Idioteque was the real deal. FULL THOM FREAKOUT! Yeah its great! It's a good thing. So that was very funny, oh how I laughed.

Jonny had a nice little solo-thing before How To Disappear Completely, playing strange stuff as a blueish spotlight shown on him, very nice. His hair is really long again, I thought he cut it! But it must have been a while ago, cos you couldn't see his face at all, just this wooshing black mass flowing back and forth...

In some songs Ed didn't have much to do, and in one song particularly I found it very funny, he looked so defeated, like "Why do I even liiive?" Aw, Eddie! Kiss the mountain! But yeah he's cool, everyone looked cool. Colin wore black pants and an orange or red shirt while bobbing around and stamping his foot, he was very adorable. Ed was wearing jeans and a white shirt, I think. Same goes for Thom, but it's not as though they look anything alike. Thom was wearing sandals...you could see his toes! THOMtoes! Jonny was wearing a long sleeved white shirt with some design on it, although I couldn't see. And Phil...well, he was bald. Isn't that nuts? No really, he was wearing a black shirt, and well, I dunno what else he was wearing, but pants I assume. None of them ever wear shorts now do they? It was quite hot...

The coolest thing about the Radiohead concerts, and probably ALL Radiohead concerts, is that all the crazy fans will be singing along. Like really, everyone was singing! So it was a really cool experience. That's why this concert was by far the most fun concert I've been to in my whole life. It doesn't mean it was the best performance, but it was the most fun and the best concert I've ever been to. I think that Beck probably puts on a better show, but Radiohead fans are really...really good fans! Yeah, they're super, and I'm one of em! And Radiohead just rules. Radiohead and Beck, it's really hard to choose, man! The best song to sing along to was Fake Plastic Trees. It was kind of like some messed up Kumbaya...Cristen and I were swaying baaack and fooorth..."He used to do surgery for girls in the 80s"...ah. Singalong fun with Radiohead!

You And Whose Army was very funny because Thom was looking right at us! I mean, there were three screens around the stage and there was a camera on the piano, so he was looking riiight into it and it was hilarious. He was pointing at the audience and stuff, which could have meant anything really, he wouldn't have needed to tell us to sing along but...well. So he was staring at us and making funny faces, although that probably wasn't intentional, I just thought it was funny.

And another ramdom note: When Thom introduced Paranoid Android, he said it funny like he forgot what he was saying..."Paaaranoid...Andrrroid..." Ha! Ha? OH yeah, another random thing, I lost my minotaur pin! The one made of model magic. Well it's okay, I can make another one! They're fragile though, it was bound to happen...:)

So when the concert was over, we had to rush to get to the bus...we had 20 minutes, man! First of all, we messed up at the subway station, going to the downtown trains when we wanted to go uptown..or something like that. So we wasted 5 bucks or so. :( And then we just waited in that sweltering hot subway station...waiting...and then it CAME! One stop later we ran to the bus station, and it was at section 418. Yeah...400s, that can't be good. I don't know how long I was running for, we went up like three flights of stairs/escalators and goign around all these corners, but I thought I was going to pass out. When I got there I saw the bus outside.."OHMYGOD it's right there ahh!" and I went through the door up to the bus and the bus driver dude closed to door but opened them again I guess cos he saw us..and two other people were trying to get on also. TIf we were a few seconds later, we might have missed it and would have to wait another hour! Yikes! The bus was packt (like sardines in a crushd tin box!) and we were all standing for a while, with my arm losing feeling, but when we got to the first stop in NJ I got to sit down. Phew!

So here I am typing...after dropping Cristen off at her humble abode and coming home, I chuged some orange juice (well I drank all my water on the bus), took a shower, and now I'm here! Woo. So that's that, Radiohead is fun like you'll never have. I mean, unless you go. It's best to go with other Radiohead freaks or a freak, then you can sing the songs together! My throat feels a bit funny front shouting/screaming/squealing/shrieking way too much, but who cares...I SAW RADIOHEAD! And to go full circle on my concert experiences, all I need is Bjork! She's the missing piece! Soon enough, I shall see her...:)

August 07, 2001

DON'T LET ME FORGET! Tomorrow on Wednesday, Emiliana Torrini is going to be on Craig Kilborn (I think) and I don't want to miss it, but I keep forgetting...

Anyway, I'm still here, waiting till I have to go to NY...see radiohead..WOO! I got Chart magazine in the mail today with THOM on the cover (thanks to Heather!) and it's a strange interview. Thom talks about his son a bit, it's quite funny! Here's a bit of the interview:

So, the big deal in your life is that you had a baby boy, Noah.
That is chaos. That is chaos in a little bundle.
What is he like?
Well apparently he looks like me. Poor sod.
Does he look like you?
He's a mini-me. At least at the moment.

*blah blah blah blah blah...*

How old is he now?
He's three months now.
And he's quite a big boy?
He's massive.
He's like a large blob?
He's a huge, great big blob.

Well, isn't that nice...um...yeah. Blobs. Blob babies. Attack of the BLOB BABIES!

In the new issue of Rolling Stone (which I also got today) Sigur Ros is in it. Woo! AND Mum is in it! That was a surprise! Well there's an accent over the u but I don't know how to do it, I should figure it out. Wait, I know...Múm! There I did it, woo! Yes, they rule. Maybe their album will be more readily available now...or not, but I quite like them. Oh yeah, they're in the mag as "Hot Icelandic Import" and last year that was pretty much was Sigur Rós last year. Well maybe they were just Hot New Band or something. But woo! Loudon Wainwright III is in there too (Rufus's dad, he seems a bit strange, he sang a weird song on Conan once) and apparently he's going to play a dad in the new Fox sitcom "Undeclared"...that show looks weird, man. It's by the dude who made Freaks and Geeks though, so that's cool! :)
Discover the goddess in you!

Let's see, the goddess in ROBYN is "a Really Original Babe who Yearns Nicely"...um. Let's see who the goddess in Thom is...ya, he's "a Thoughtfully Happy Optimist who Mesmerizes"..hehe! He IS an optimist. But...yeah...well that's interesting. What about Beck? "A Boldly Esteemed Character who Kids." Um. Bjork? "A Breathtakingly Jolly Observer who Reasons Knowingly"...weird.
