Breaking news: Tenacious D's self-titled debut record was semi-recalled yesterday, its release date, due to complaints by stores who found the "satanic" cover art objectionable. The offended sent their shipments of the record back. Expect a rereleased Tenacious D record with new cover art in the near future or purchase a copy of the original while it's still available.
"Today is the first day of the rest of your life."
Shut the fuck up.
Wednesday, I begin month 13 of my college education. What's up for me this quarter?
English Literature To 1660
History Of The American Motion Picture
Only two classes, you ask? Yes, only two classes. 12 consecutive months of school can really do a number on your general education requirements. With those out of the way, I can concentrate on prepping for a potential film major and a backup major in English at the same time. Two classes, too much writing, 10 weeks, 11 units, one helluva bad time. I'm not even a full-time student! You need 12 units to qualify as full-time. Moreover, if you have a job on campus and you're not a full-time student, the University takes money from your paycheck to deposit in some Medicare sick fund. Well, fuck that. Gimme my money, bitch! Why don't I just enroll in another class? Because I don't want to max out units. The limit is 160 and I already have 82. [sigh] Sucks to be me.
What is the logic in making criminals serve two lifetime sentences without parole? Last time I checked, human beings don't meow.
I watched the series premiere of Undeclared tonight. Despite what critics say, I like the show. I think it's really funny, probably even more so because the show is filmed in part at UCLA. I've seen the cast up close and personal! How cool is that? I guess it takes a weird sensibility to enjoy the work of Judd Apatow. I'm the only guy I know who liked The Cable Guy and Freaks And Geeks. Oh well.
It's practically impossible to secure tickets for any major show in Los Angeles. The 2001 KROQ Weenie Roast sold out in 8 minutes, as did two Radiohead, four Depeche Mode, and seven U2 shows. Today, however, I beat the odds and managed to get tickets (orchestra seats!) for the SoCal date of Tenacious D's upcoming U.S. tour. I'm actually gonna see fuckin' Tenacious D! Whoo!
In other news, I was AIMing with Bob from WankerCounty last month and he convinced me to go see guys scratch records live, namely DJ QBert of Invisibl Skratch Piklz fame. As a result, Sunday Sunday Sunday I shall go see DJ QBert, Kid Koala, and Money Mark. Good line-up, if you ask me. I just hope Mr. Bob's right about this turntable-ism.
Okay, 9 o' clock class, 1 o' clock bedtime. Goodie goodie.
