I feel like I have a lot to say. Its kind of funny, I'll be out delivering packages, formulating blog entries that kind of die somewhere between where I am and the computer. But here's a quick overview of some stuff I wanted to say, pretty much how I thought it.

I hate people who drive slowly. Also, people who say you shouldn't say "hate" because its a strong word. I hate them too. Literally.

When are you funny and when are you just annoying? There's a fine line between the two. I think truly funny people know where that line is. Of course, there's people who find it funny to be annoying. Sasha Baron Cohen and Andy Kaufmann come to mind in that area. That type of funny is harder to do though.

Don't try hard to fit in. Its annoying and definitely not funny.

I don't like Fudgems. He leaves chocolate sauce on stuff. How could you like that?

You know what, I hate Fudgems. There I said it.

Sometimes, I get angry about things that make no sense. I won't go into detail, because its kind of embarrassing that I think those things.

When I think of myself getting married, I honestly feel a little sick in the stomach. I'm sure my future bride, if she knew she were my future bride, would feel the same way. Does that mean I have problems? Probably. At least I'm willing to admit it. Not that that makes a difference. Admitting it isn't a battle.

Crazy is as crazy does. I think.

So apparently, I've discovered YouTube. Which to this day, is still my favorite place to find music videos that I like. One in particular would be what I still to this day consider the precursor to the Gorillaz videos and theme. That of course would be the entire story told through out the Daft Punk videos. Its a cool little anime application to the Daft Punk band, in which they. . .well, I'll not ruin it. As long as I can find it on You tube that is. So here are the videos, in the the order they should run in from top to bottom. Thanks to Velt for letting me rip this CD instead of buying it. That's right, RIAA, I ripped a CD that I didn't pay for. I'd say come get me, but well, I bought it later, so. . .basically that rip ended up in you making a sale. I mean jeez what's next, I won't be able to buy a used CD?

Ain't that just crazy/ain't that just funny/ain't that something?

If I had to burn a CD that I had to listen to for the next thousand years, what would I put on it? Lets pretend it'll take at least thirty songs. In the order that I'd want to hear them, here are thirty songs that I'd want to listen to over and over and over again. Within reason.

Format: Title - Artist
1) Hot N Cold - Basement Jaxx (from Kish Kash. Awesome album, favorite song from it)
2) Welcome To THe Jungle - Guns N Roses.
3) SpottieOttieDopalicious - Outkast (spoken word meets funk inspired Southern horn hooks and hi-hat cymbal. Brilliant)
4) LadyFlash - The Go! Team (yeah, I like em. Search for this video on YouTube)
5) The Mask - DangerDoom
6) We Live in Brooklyn, Baby - Roy Ayers (I live in Huntsville, but I still sing this song repeatedly. Roy Ayers is the man. The man, who coincidentally did a lot of songs for blaxploitation movies in the seventies. Proving that everything about those movies weren't entirely bad)
7) Faithful - Common (Asks an interesting question, if we can't be faithful to our significant others, what can we be faithful to?)
8) Novocaine for the Soul - the Eels (almost depressingly introspective)
9) Just A Thought - Gnarles Barkley (reminds me of Manic Depression by Jimi Hendrix. Listen to the songs back to back. Very similar styles and subject matter)
10) Metric - Ellen Allien with Apparat (hard bassline, violins and cello, a brilliantly simple drum pattern, some synth thrown in for good measure and we have a song)
11) The Big Jump - the Chemical Brothers
12) Shimmer - Fuel (Special place in my heart for this song, sorry)
13) Margarita - Sleepy Brown ft. Pharell (its just fun!)
14) Everlong - Foo Fighters (I didn't like rock before this song. Now I love it)
15) Breed - Nirvana (since we're on a bit of a rock kick)
16) Driving South - Stone Roses (its a really cool opening riff)
17) These Halcyon Days - The Tea Party
18) Kiss - Prince
19) Earthquake Weather - Beck
20) Only You - Portishead (first heard this while watching the Portishead DVD. It totally sold me on this song)
21) Doing it to Death - James Brown
22) What Your Soul Sings - Massive Attack
23) The Distance - Cake (the only Cake song I like. And its right on the verge of being with the rest of the Cake songs)
24) We Need A Resolution - Aaliyah ft. Timbaland (She had a sweet voice, and Timbaland knows better than any other producer how to capitalize on that)
25) Plug in Baby - Muse (still my favorite Muse song)
26) Ride Captain Ride - Blues Image (come on it starts with a Wurli piano, a reverse cymbal and the sounds of the ocean with seagulls. How can you not like this song?)
27) Use Me - Bill Withers
28) Province - TV on the Radio
29) Public Service Announcement - the Bravery (I've hooked at least one person on them. My work here is done)
30) My Sacrifice - Creed (you gotta end big. and no one does big better than Creed. That band understood how to take a song and just make it huge. I still remember the video of them playing this in a sinking boat. Or maybe that was Higher. . .)

So there you go. Go out and download those. Then get deserted on an island with a limitless supply of batteries and a really good CD player. Oh and food and water.
