~ Just saw a commercial for Dan Haren's In My Own Words.

Audio of him claiming "I've always been a family guy. When I leave my kid and go on road trips? I cry." Over images of Danny playing on the floor with his oddly named infant spawn.

What is that?!? That's not fair. You're killing me, FSNAZ. My ovaries can't take that kind of stuff this early in the morning.

~ I apparently cannot take much early in the morning. I have no desire to see Terminator: Salvation, but I just love the use of NIN's The Day The World Went Away in the trailer. Well done, trailer editing person! Does anyone have an mp3 of this remix?

Am I the last person on the block to hear that Zooey Deschanel and Ben Gibbard are engaged?

I'm not sure how I feel about this. I think I'm leaning toward it being awesome, like, on the scale of Will and Jada, or Alyson and Alexis, but I have to think about it for a minute.

First off - Bri swears it wasn't her, so many thanks to the kind soul who gifted me additional paid time. I originally had gifted paid time through March (which I feel like I've wasted by only posting twice, but posting aside, it gave me the chance to futz with some potential new layouts), so whoever you are, I hope you like baseball, cause I now have paid time through the first two months of the baseball season ;) While I'm not yet feeling bitten by the MLB bug, odds are you'll be drowning in pointless polls and constant updates by next month ;)

Music: I've been really digging Our December by Thriving Ivory, a free Amazon mp3 I downloaded last fall and have just given a listen. I like the song so much I went and bought their major label debut which is currently at the top of Billboard's Heatseekers chart and only $7.99 at Best Buy. Of course, Our December isn't on their major label debut, and I don't like any song on there near as much. Let this be a lesson to you, kids. Never pay for music until you've scouted it out for free, first. I'm sure the cd will grow on me, with time. I like the band's sound, it's just that lyrics-wise, the major label debut is kinda boring.

And on the topic of new music - you can stream new Death Cab tracks over at Stereogum. I don't like Little Bribes or A Diamond and A Tether much...My Mirror Speaks and Once I Was A Loyal Lover are fun times, though!

1. Reply to this post and I'll assign you a letter.
2. List (and upload, if you feel like it) 5 songs that start with that letter.
3. Post them to your journal with these instructions.

[Bad username or site: cookie2697 / @ livejournal.com] gave me "D". Will upload any of the following upon request.

She was physically forgotten, then
she slipped into my pocket with my car keys
She said, "You've taken me for granted,
Because I please you
Wearing these diamonds..."

- Paul Simon's "Diamonds On The Soles Of Her Shoes".

Same old song
Just a drop of water in an endless sea
All we do crumbles to the ground,
Though we refuse to see
Dust in the wind
All we are is dust in the wind

- Kansas' "Dust In The Wind". Tessa! RICHIE. Yes, a decade later and I'm still depressed.

I never felt alone
until I met you
I was alright on my own
and then I met you
And I'd know what to do if I just knew
what's coming

- Third Eye Blind "Deep Inside of You".

I finally understand
For a woman it ain't easy, tryin' to raise a man

- Tupac's "Dear Mama".

I never thought I could love anyone but myself
Now I know, I can't love anyone but you
You make me think that maybe I won't die alone

- Ingrid Michaelson's "Die Alone".

Things that are lame:
1. Spoiler cut in the event anyone on ye olde f-list is still making their way through the second season of the BBC's Robin Hood ) To which I say....what? I knew there was a reason I stopped watching this show after the first season. And the worst thing is, you can't unknow this. It just sits there, in the back of your head. Why oh why did I flip to BBCA last night?

2. Disney's The Black Cauldron, which I was DUPED into buying by virtue of its cover art indicating it is a Disney Masterpiece. I was like, what's this? A Disney Masterpiece I haven't seen? INCONCEIVABLE. Sure, I was little unsure about a story involving a clairvoyant pig, but if anyone could make that work, Disney could. But it turns out no one can make that work. So bad! It only cost me a dollar at Goodwill, and I wanted my dollar back.

3. Ellis spending his last two months as an A on a team that looks on pace to have an ugly end to the season.

4. Manny blathering on about finding peace of mind in LA and wanting to end his career there. Dude, shut the fuck up. You have been there for all of A DAY. God. Just shut up and play some baseball and hope you can con some sad bastard into giving you an obscene amount of money for the privilege of putting up with your obnoxious ass.

A thing that is hilarious:
5. The A's are going to spend the remainder of the season auditioning Huston's replacement. Ahahaha.

"I would say I'm extremely unhappy about it," Street said Saturday. "(Closing is) what I've done my whole career. Do I think I've been as good as I've been my whole career? No. But I still think there's two months left in the season for me to prove myself . . . or prove myself to them."

Yes, please take it personally, Huston. (Okay, I do feel a little bad for him, because it's just so BLATANT, but oh well.) Also, lolz at the idea that the A's are doing this to "help" his confidence.

Things that are of the yay. I think.:
6. Zito's line: 8.0IP, 3H, 5K. The walks are never gonna go away, apparently (4BB last night), but not a bad night's work in front of his hometown peeps. Isn't he due for another sitdown with Urban this weekend?

7. Chris Kirkpatrickyou can get your ass kicked is going to be on the second season of Gone Country. I resisted the first year, even though they had Baltimore's own Sisqo on board, because I hate reality tv. Haaaate. But Chris? Seriously? I give in, CMT. I will watch your dumb reality show.
