The 80's were such a great time for music, mainly due to Rick James. Please enjoy the following video.

This is a post from October 2004. It was so good, and timely, I decided to repost it. Enjoy.

Q. How many men does it take to screw in a light bulb?
A. One - he just holds it up there and waits for the world to revolve around him.

Let's just get it out in the open: I hate men. I really do. I'm not speaking in some broad all-encompassing gender study kind of way. I'm talking about individually. As a daughter, wife and romantic partner, completely self-centered men have surrounded me. All of these men have expected me to fill some kind of role in their lives - never once considering that maybe I won't neatly fit into a preconceived category just because I have ovaries. They all claim that they support all things feminist, but let me tell you, the misogyny is there bubbling under the surface. When I'm assertive, I'm bitchy (and probably suffering from pre-menstrual syndrome). When I wanted a divorce, I was selfish. When I decided marriage wasn't for me, I was immature and immoral. When I got fed up with financially supporting another man for a ridiculous amount of time while sacrificing my education and career goals, I was accused of not honoring commitment ("...that's what commitment is about..."). When I acknowledge that I'm a sexual being, I'm a slut. When I demand a satisfying relationship, I'm unrealistic. When I express the desire to have a child, it's thought that I'm trying to unfairly "trick" a man into some 1950's notion of responsibility. When I express any intellectual thoughts or theories, I'm patronized, because after all, I'm just a woman. What it all comes down to is that if I'm not living my life without prioritizing the impact it will have on these men first, I'm leading my life the wrong way. The idea that men are so concerned with the image reflected on them by the actions of the women in their life is quite frankly insulting.

My dear sister Merideth is having spring break in Las Vegas this weekend.

Good luck, Vegas.

Java Gaia was a coffee house I used to hang out in during high school. It was Downtown, so my click thought it was waaay hip. Unfortunately, in the flood of '93, it was washed away. But I have many a good memory of respectable, clean fun back in the day. For those of my loyal readers who shared Vishnu's and earl grey tea with me while we all still had braces, enjoy!
"The FBI has released the last 10 documents from its secret files on slain Beatle John Lennon that had been withheld for 25 years on the ground they could prompt "military retaliation" against the United States, campaigners for their release said on Wednesday."

Here is the new Silversun Pickups video for "Lazy Eye". There are a few things that are misrepresented by this video. I saw them live and none of the following occurred:

#1 - The sound is never that good in a club, and they sure as hell weren't lip syncing.

#2 - It wasn't midmorning, or whenever this video is supposed to occur. Who goes to a show in the daylight?

#3 - There was no tense love scene with a Haley Mills look-a-like not wearing pants. Who has time for that when you're rocking?

#4 - The band looks way too clean. At the show I wanted to bust out some Pantene and hand sanitizer for safeties sake.

#5 - That kid doesn't look old enough to have a driver's license, let alone a motorcycle.

I suppose I'm just nitpicking. But seriously, that video is way too target audience-ish.
