one week closer to argentina . . .

um . . . and the bar exam. But I still found it necessary to take this quiz, out of morbid curiosity. Too bad I'd have to die to cash in on that $4290 . . . I could definitely use it just about now . . .

i'm losing it . . .

Pretty much everyone who reads this won't get this, but I got way too excited yesterday when Briton was giving me directions and told me to "turn left on Carman Avenue."

I know "Your Name Here" is actually referencing Carmans Road ("there's no such road as Carmans Avenue, but 'Road' doesn't rhyme with 'you'" . . . thanks, John Nolan), but whatever.

in honor of the dark knight

and since I was appalled that Briton had never even heard of this movie, let alone seen it, I present to you the finest moment of Christian Bale's career.

God I love this movie, even though I guess there's a reason why Christian Bale doesn't talk about it . . . and it starts at 2:11 . . . hahaha

quote of the day!

two things that made me laugh out loud today:

Me (9:59:53 PM): do people not drink in eastern PA? haha
My Totally Joking Friend (10:00:16 PM): haha they do! i went to college here!
My Totally Joking Friend (10:00:27 PM): omg, maybe i drank all of it!!!

and from Colleen on my MySpace page (even though this story actually made me really sad, her comment about it had me in hysterics). . .

Did you know Steven Page was arrested on cocaine charges?! Guess that's what he did with his million dollars...

for briton!

So . . . I didn't actually watch this whole video, but I did skip to the end and it has Paul's phone number.

So I suppose we could just call him and ask him if he's the mole.

Wikipedia is amazing . . .

And I'm back to work now. And by "back to work" I mean back to attempting to read the notes that I've been sitting here trying to read for the past three hours and that I'm still not done with. Two more weeks!

no really, i'm fine

The Spill Canvas won Yahoo's "Who's Next" contest for the last month. Check them out, they're pretty awesome.

I always expect their lead singer to be hot and then get really disappointed when he's not. Buuut he did write one of my top five favorite songs of all time (I think it makes the cut . . . maybe not, but it's definitely top 10) and two others that probably would fit in my top 20. And they have a song that starts out with the line "fate is an elegant cold-hearted whore." And their latest album and E.P. were titled "No Really, I'm Fine" and "Honestly, I'm Doing Okay", which I think are awesome titles. So I suppose all of that makes him sufficiently attractive to me. Anyway. Check them out, watch the video, and if you like what you hear, you can check out my muxtape page, which includes my other "top 20 worthy" song of theirs (Boo for not being able to find an mp3 of "All Hail the Heartbreaker" to link to).

this is officially the coolest site ever

Because we're officially halfway done with 2008 and because I'm officially keeping track of my 2008 soundtrack as the year goes by this time instead of trying to compile it in December and because I will officially be done with all three days of the bar exams three weeks from today and that thought makes me happy (and also terrifies me), and because I am obsessed with the idea of this site (even though hardly any of the music files on my computer are .mp3 files and I had to spend about 15 minutes downloading mp3s of these songs just for the site and I still couldn't find a couple of them that will definitely make the mix) . . . I present to you my official 2008 soundtrack . . . or the first half of it, at least! (Check back in December for the explanations of why these made the mix . . . I've wasted enough time already!)

Click here to listen to it!

  1. The Fear You Won't Fall - Joshua Radin
  2. Say - John Mayer (not on Muxtape)

"i'd say get a monkey, and just torture the hell out of it"

So I was attempting to find the theme song from MTV's "The State" on mp3 so that I could do one last "bonus round" trivia contest, since clearly my last one was too easy, and I don't know that ANYONE who reads this would have gotten "The State." I did find it, but I got very sidetracked when I discovered the trailer for The Ten

which I promptly ordered from Adam Brody? Liev Schreiber? Paul Rudd? Directed by David Wain? WHY HAVE I NOT SEEN THIS MOVIE?

The State's official website also reported that they actually made a box set of the entire series

but MTV is dragging their asses with releasing it. There is pretty much no price that I wouldn't pay for that box set. It's that brilliant. Nerve & IFC agreed, with four of The State's skits appearing in their "50 Greatest Comedy Sketches of All Time" list.

I could sing The State's praises all day, but I have this little test in 3 1/2 weeks that I should be studying for, so I'll just leave you with my two favorite sketches (God, it's like choosing between children):

tv theme song trivia: now with 100% more sound clips

Apparently my TV theme song trivia was too easy! They've all been correctly guessed now, so scroll on down and check it out if there were any that stumped you.

I thought I'd be all clever and post a bunch more TV theme songs with sound clips instead of lyrics to make it even more challenging (although I think that my last post was easy enough that nobody had to resort to googling until after the fact). Hopefully this works!

Annnnnd.... less than an hour later, they're all guessed. The names of the shows and the guessers (or the Gessers, haha) are listed below.

  1. Number One - How I Met Your Mother - Briton

  2. Number Two - Futurama - Pat

  3. Number Three - Boston Legal - Briton

  4. Number Four - 24 - Pat

  5. Number Five - Alias - Michelle

  6. Number Six - Baywatch - Michelle

  7. Number Seven - Dawson's Creek - Pat

  8. Number Eight - Beverly Hills, 90210 - Michelle

  9. Number Nine (since Pat was upset it wasn't on the last one) - Charles in Charge - Pat

  10. Number Ten - Doogie Howser, M.D. - Michelle

  11. Number Eleven (I used to hear this song playing downstairs while my parents watched it as I tried to go to sleep) - Dallas - Eric

  12. Number Twelve - The OC - Michelle

  13. Number Thirteen - Everybody Loves Raymond - Michelle

  14. Number Fourteen - Married, With Children - Michelle

  15. Number Fifteen - Smallville - Michelle

  16. Number Sixteen - Lost - Briton

  17. Number Seventeen - Step by Step - Michelle

  18. Number Eighteen - Tiny Toon Adventures - Michelle

  19. Number Nineteen - House - Michelle

  20. Number Twenty - Different Strokes - Michelle

  21. Oh, and as a bonus, because I CANNOT BELIEVE I LEFT THIS ONE OUT (I blame the site I stole the mp3s from) - The Office - Briton :

maybe i'm just losing it from doing too many pmbr questions

But I laughed a lot at this question.

Ricky, a New York city policeman, was relaxing in his living room when his wife entered and asked what he'd like for dinner. Ricky replied, "Ethel, next door." Startled Lucy asked Ricky what he meant by that remark. Ricky then said, "Look, I've had the 'hots' for Ethel for a long time. I've got this burning desire to go next door and rape her." As Ricky was about to walk out the door, he turned to Lucy and said, "You want to come along and watch?" Lucy shook her head as if to say okay and followed him next door.

Moments later, Ricky rang the doorbell and Ethel came to the door. After entering her home, Ricky grabbed Ethel's arm and began to rip off her clothes. Terribly frightened, Ethel pleaded with Ricky to stop. As he continued to assault her, Ethel then turned to Lucy and said, "Please tell him to get off me." Lucy, who despised Ethel, simply stood by and told Ricky, "Do it, honey . . . do it." Ricky raped Ethel repeatedly and afterward threatened to kill her if she told anyone."

Because I'm sure you're all dying to know what happened . . . Lucy should be found guilty on a charge of raping Ethel because, with the intent to have Ethel raped, she shouted encouragement to Ricky.
