And I don’t have the stamina to weed through terrible dubstep to get at anything real, and the only stuff I’ve...
OMG you guys. Remember Ashanti and Ja Rule????
This day makes me want fried chicken.

Ayelet Waldman: What I Read →
I love this series. I found this one particularly entertaining. I want to be able to read fiction for two hours every night.
Prompted by this post, list 15 authors who have influenced your life/ worldview/ etc. I’m having trouble thinking about this in terms of “influence”, so instead I’m thinking about books/authors that I will return to over and over, or that had some special meaning at the time (that’s probably what influence means, but that word sounds so _heavy_).

I just took what I thought was a really long shower, hoping that I would get out and it would be midnight and I would have A Dance With Dragons waiting for me on my kindle.

Does every kid these days still want to be a marine biologist?

who's in that? Johnny Depp? Christian Bale? Marillion Cottard? Robert Downey Junior? Kate Bosworth? Stephen Dourff?
me: everyone under the sun
yes yes no no yes
Giovanni Ribisi, Channing Tatum,
Billy Crudup apparently?
Tim: what? really? you made that up
Billy Crudup doesn't exist
he's MF J Edgar Hoover
I don't know, I don't think I watched that part
despite being about gangsters and including stephen dorffffff, it was sorta boring
maybe I only watched the parts with stephen dorffffffffff in it
although that haircut isn't flattering on anyone
I like that he takes those chances
Tim: yeah, terrible movies
SHUT UP BLADE IS AWESOME
I Shot Andy Warhol
I am loving Somewhere the more I think about it
Tim: Space Truckers

me: I don't even know what that is
Tim: Dennis Hopphophopper, Steven Dorffffffffff, Debbie Mazer
they are Truckers
"The Film Was Poorly Received By Critics."
the capitalization is my own
the Dorffff looks so dorffffffy on the poster!
Charles motherfucking Dance?
Tim: oh yeah
he's the bad guy
I forgot about him
me: Lord Lannister himself
Charles Dance is the bad guy

except Alien 3
where he is somehow the love interest
me: They've shipped everything from square pigs to anti-gravity beer... But now they've got a load of real trouble.
I did not realize that
I actually liked Alien 3
Tim: yeah me too
yeah he's the doctor that gets busy with Ripley
before he gets Alien'd
I really like Alien 3
I love teams working together
overcoming something, whether it's bank security or homicidal aliens
