So turns out pimps are a good thing.
Anyway I'll take the opportunity to pimp my Shrimp video which has not only gotten over 2400 views and 19 favorites [sic] but is on 5 playlists including the prestigious Utter Shit to make u LAUGH one. Anyway I mention this cause I've got the webcam on my computer to work so I might do another vlog in the near future.
I should also pimp Jonathan Coulton's website. He's a geek rock singer and all his music is avalible for free listening on his aforementioned website. I like especially (but not exclusively) the following:
Tom Cruise Crazy
Chiron Beta Prime
Re Your Brains
(From Actors to Zombies)
Edit: Inserted (semi)-drunken vlog:
It is the last minute of the last hour. You may already have plans for tonight or think you do. But prepare for this - Leo's Last Minute Party! It is going to be awesome! We have a new stereo! I'm going to make salsa. Maybe even little gourmet things on crackers?! Plan to drop in, stay cause it's awesome! Out of town for the holidays? I don't believe you. Come over, it will be a blast!
When: After 8:30 tonight (Friday Dec. 22nd)
Where: at Leo's house, email me for exact location
Who: Who knows? Bring the roomies and significant others.
Come because it won't be Christmas-y!
See you tonight
UPDATE: And it ended up being the biggest parthy ever. I lost a whole dolleh in a Casino Royale caliber game, then later we played Interrogation which was every bit as brutal as the sequence in Casino Royale.
Aiyo, Renny, you got fat,
Yeah, I know it looks pathetic, I got on a sinkin' ship with horrible aesthetics.
Yes, yes, the rumours are 100% true. It's a place, er, it's my space to show people my Apple Comics. Once the MONDO drops online in January, we'll have a way for people to get 'caught up' as it were. Man, I could make Apple comics all the time.
Comics. That's today's word. Me ma got a book from the library, "Flight" vol. 1, put together by Kazu Kibuishi. I loved this story, which may shock some pople since I'm famous for hating Calvin and Hobbes and I'll be the first to admit, this is quite similar. Less manic, though, if you ask me.
The other stand out in Flight I was this comic, which Sam won't like, but that doesn't mean it isn't good.
Also worth looking up: Jake Parker for adventure and Chris Appelhans for atmospheric and that. I thought I was up on my comics but really I am so rusty. What was the last comics I bought? Last given to me was from me ma in the summer.
Instead I've been spending money on CD's. Got Nas' new album Hip Hop Is Dead for 9.99. Still only on third listen but I don't think this one is canon. It's more cannon. Yes, Hip Hop might be dead and I think Nas is just about the perfect one to argue it, but this is too much middle-period-mafioso-larger-than-life-egomaniac Nas. My favourite Nas is the one who can look back at his childhood and pinpoint the smell of hashbrowns and weed smoke while he was watching TV with a record playing softly in the background as his fingers scratch cigarette burns in the sofa. And make it work with intense technical precision.
