when you know whats worth fighting for

sometimes even the best of nights can still leave you wishing you had something more to come home to than an empty bed and cold sheets.

bittersweet, isn't it

wine for the woman who makes the rain come

I finally got around to finishing Extras. It left me wanting a bit more, but with the crying and such I sort of didn't mind. I loved it almost as much as the end of The Office. Maybe even as much. The scene where Andy bears his soul choked me up almost as much as David standing up for himself or even "never give up."

I hope someday I can be involved with something as brilliant as what Gervais and Merchant have done.

you left enchanted by my intellect, or maybe you didn't

I might actually be posting some content ( gasp ) here at some point soon. I've been amassing tons of script notes, and your deity of choice willing, I might actually get some stuff on paper (keyboard?) soon. I think break will be a nice ass-cold creative period.

why are you so far away from me

I have found that one of the best things about life is a crush that comes at a completely inopportune time.

It's not logical, and nothing will come of it, but in the worst of times an innocent little crush can be a bright, shining reminder that life can still be capable of beauty, and possibly even a wake-up call that there are actually a whole bunch of wonderful girls out there in the world.

find your own way home

My life is kind of like that feeling your frozen hands get when you get back inside a warm house - somewhere between frozen and on fire, warm yet burning.

Fuck Sony, BTW. They are officially fucking up Little Big Planet. First with no price drop for the system, then with a lack of marketing, and now they're deleting levels with any trace of copyrighted content (GoW, Sonic, Mario levels all gone), and even levels WITHOUT anything copyrighted, targeting specifically the most hearted levels in the game... wtf.

it doesn't take much to be somebody special

I was sitting here reading Happysad when a song from the Weezer album Pinkerton started playing on the stereo, and it got me thinking about something. There is a link in many of the things I love, stuff like Lost in Translation, The Office (UK, naturally), FLCL, etc. It isn't necessarily that they're all about some form of hopeless romance, but it's that they're true.

There are tons of sappy-ass romance things that get a knee-jerk repulsion out of me, most notably 99% of romantic comedies ever made, bhe great thing about that sort of "genre" or whatever, though, is that depending on personal experience, you can really tell when something is true. You can tell when the people who made it did so from their hearts, put everything out on the table, made something that was true to them in the hopes that somebody out there will also find it true to themselves, too.

i've got an electric guitar, i play these stupid songs, i write these stupid words, and i love every one, waiting there for me, yes i do, yes i do

Every once in a while, it occurs to me just how awesome it is that freaking Arnold is the governor of California. Doesn't that kick ass?

That's all.



Oh, and the Blackhawks are now 7-3-3, fourth win in a row, second game where we destroyed the other team by 4 or more goals (6-2 over Colorado, 6-1 over Calgary). Next game is an original six matchup against Boston on Wednesday... hopefully we can keep our badass streak going.
