Follow the bouncing brain!



This was, I guess, a promo for Plants vs. Zombies, way back in 2009, when the online version was first released. I first encountered it at the very end of the game, which I have been playing kind of a lot since it came out on XBox Live Arcade a few weeks ago.

(Oh, yeah, so . . . I'm now on XBox Live. If you want to play Uno or something, or go co-op against zombies, BE MY FRIEND! My handle is "anerda joy." That might have an underscore, rather than a space.)

happy national punctuation day!

(Yes! I finally remembered to post something related to National Punctuation Day on the actual day!)

what can you do but go on?

Wow, so I haven't done a "music shuffle" (formerly "Friday shuffle" but I can't make those kinds of commitments anymore) since 2008. Horrifying.

Here's one, with audio!Collapse )

There is a serious dearth of studio-quality Quasi audio on the internets. I could have posted a hundred of their songs by now. (Maybe you're lucking out.)

They put out a new album last month called American Gong, and it's SO GOOD. They're playing at Johnny Brenda's next month and I WILL BE THERE, drinking cider and getting too close to the speakers. It's been a while since they've come through town, and I'm looking forward to it. (When I've seen them in the past, I was always really amazed that they could reproduce that amount of noise with only two people on stage. I'd always assumed there were other people, who just weren't in the promo photos for whatever reason.)

Janet Weiss is still pretty much my favorite drummer. I once danced right next to her at a Black Heart Procession concert, and I was too shy to say hello. Regrets.

So that's what's happening in 2010.

But the only stuff, other than live performances, I can find on YouTube is from the album Featuring "Birds," from 1998. (Or earlier.) This song is awesome, though. The last few lines always make me laugh 'cause they kind of come out of nowhere. (Like, "Oh, and by the way, I hate you.") They sound pretty much the same, except that they have a bass player now (which makes their sound a lot heavier, which I like), and there isn't as much keyboard lately (which I must admit that I miss).

No more morning class means I am free to resume my late-night dance parties.

I know I e-mailed this to a few of you a while back, but it's still making me giggle, so it's time to share with the general public: http://hipsterpuppies.tumblr.com/

So cute. The captions are the best part. I think "Tillie" is my favorite.

A bakery recently opened in my neighborhood.

I am not vegan, nor do I have a gluten allergy, but -- OMG, cupcakes! Carrot cupcakes two blocks from my house!

also, so i don't get too tired.

I should start taking naps before I go out to hipster bars to make sure I get my bedhead just right.

I buy reissues now, because I am old.



Ah, but I remember every note.

My current web obsession:

Number One

It's all just images of Commander William T. Riker. I think that these, particularly the cartoon drawings, explain a lot about the kind of dudes I'm into now. Which is to say: nerdy guys with beards. (These are all over OKCupid.)

(I realize that Riker himself wasn't actually that nerdy, but look at that drawing.)

From stereotypist:

Since early September, Natalie Dee has had an occasional comic about an egg who is worried about what will happen when his chicken comes out. Today, the chicken speaks.
