My iPhone Is A Music Snob

Ok, so who all has an iPhone/iPod/iWhateverplaysmusic? All of you? Good.

Every morning when I get ready I bring the iPhone in the bathroom with me and just put it on shuffle, but here lately I have been having to actually choose my music because... my iPhone is a music snob. It plays a few different songs, but for the most part it plays songs from one CD.

It's favorite CD is...

I do love this CD, but this is more of a "woe is me" day CD. Not a "mornings suck" CD. I need something upbeat iPhone GAH! Why can't you just read my mind... stupid electronics... There are almost 800 songs it can choose from but NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO... James Morrison only for the phone.

I have noticed my iPod also chooses which artists it likes the most, but I totally agree with it's choice of a favorite artist...

Out of over 7,000 songs my iPod totally knows Dolly is the bee's knees. Maybe I should have the iPod teach the iPhone how to pick music...
Does anyone else's iCrap do this?

Yes, I Know I'm A Freakshow...

If you know me well you know my love for random movies. When I tell people movies I love they usually make their eyebrows do that weird "Huh?" look. I absolutely love movies that follow ridiculous plotlines, or don't have happy endings. Now, I'm not saying that I want every movie to be sad and weird, but sometimes it's like a breath of fresh air instead of boy meets girl, boy falls in love with girl, boy messes up love, boy fixed problem, wedding, baby, THE END. Life isnt' like that, so sometimes I want movies that are just crazy.

For example, this weekend Kyle rented a movie for me that I had been DYING to see: Repo! The Genetic Opera (which of course he refused to watch with me). This movie only came out in a few theaters, so after constantly checking around here I finally gave up the dream, I guess he remembered me whining about it so when he noticed it at the video store he grabbed it.

The basic synopsis is that in the future people's organs started to fail, so this big company came in and found a way to make organs. They also make different things for people who are addicted to plastic surgery. Anyway, if you don't continue to pay for your organs they send out the Repo Man to get the organs back. It's from the makers of Saw so you can only imagine how gory it is... but here is the best part... Are you ready? IT'S A MUSICAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yes, that's right... a musical. It was like Moulin Rouge meets Rocky Horror meets Saw. I am now in love with this movie.
I am not saying go out and rent this movie... because I don't want you to punch me, but if you like WTF movies then go get it and we can discuss... Also, Paris Hilton does and awesome job! Also, you can watch videos of it on youtube, my favorite song was Zydrate Anatomy... Yep, you think I'm weird now... Oh well...

On a lighter note, we also watched Zack and Miri Make A Porno... so, so funny...

This is gonna be long... so be warned...

OK, so I realize that I talk about a lot of things that annoy me and things that I don't like, so today I'm going to talk about my absolute favorite thing in the entire world... CONCERTS! I am so in love with live music that it is unreal, if they would let me be a stinky roadie I'd sign up in a heartbeat, but I'm too lazy to be a roadie.

I plan my summer around concerts. I have been doing this since I was 16 years-old and could drive myself. I can remember going to concerts with my parents when I was younger and thinking... "Wow... this is the coolest thing I've ever seen." Of course, when I went with them we went to see their favorite people like Tanya Tucker, Garth Brooks, and who could forget the oh-so-wonderful Billy Ray Cyrus (HOLLA to the Cyrus Virus).

The first concert I ever got to go unsupervised was Edgefest in Tulsa... I was absolutely amazed and I had a blast seeing my absolute favorite band at the time (and they are still up there today): Weezer. We also got to see a million other bands that I couldn't even begin to name... but it was fantastic.

I wanted to talk about some of the concerts I have planned for this year thus far...

March 5th - Norman

Oh.My.Gosh... Could Bonnie Raitt be any cooler?

April 2nd - Kansas City

All eyes on me in the center of the ring just like a circus! You are allowed to judge me for this, but it won't matter because I think she is fantastic.

April 12th - Tulsa
Death Cab for Cutie is one of my absolute faves... Their songs give me chill bumps...
May 3rd - Tulsa
This is the one I am most excited about... Fleetwood Mac. If I could even be 1/1000th as cool as Stevie Nicks I could die a happy person.
I was going to post about my favorite concert experiences and my dream concerts, but this is super long and the one person that has actually read all of it is bored, so I will post that topic next time. Peace.

Things I Like... and Things I Don't

Good Afternoon,

This morning I was discussing things I loathe with a couple of people in my office, so I thought I would share some of my annoyances with the blogging world.

One of my main annoyances is knick-knacks. I'm sorry if I am offending you with this, but it's not like I'm going to come over to your house and tear up your Beanie Babies... I just don't like them. I don't know if it is because I hate the actual knick knack or because I hate clutter in general. When I see those people on tv that they call "hoarders" I get ridiculously stressed out. I cannot imagine having a cluttered mess of collections in my house.

An example of my annoyance with collections is a certain family member who shall remain nameless... she collects Dreamsicles. Now, if you don't know all about these washed out little cherubs I consider you one of the lucky ones. Here is your example:


Isn't that the kind of thing that makes you have nightmares? I thought so.

The only other annoyance I am going to talk about today is bumper stickers (if I talked about all of my annoyances we'd be here all day). I am fine with having a few bumper stickers... especially in an election year, but sometimes when I'm behind a person with a stupid bumper sticker I have to think "do they actually think that is funny." Here are a few that make me want to punch the owner of the car in the face... and slash their tires:




Yes sir, just because I am against a war it means I love me some terrorists.

There are some bumper stickers that make me laugh, but in general they are in no way original or funny. One time I saw a bumper sticker that said (and I am not kidding):

Was there also a NASCAR sticker and a Rebel Flag waving oh-so-proudly on this vehicle? Well, of course there was!
Thank you America... these are your citizens

Oh Poteau

Hey guys... Long time no blog right? Well, there are many reasons for my hiatus (and by many I mean 2):

1. I forgot how to log into this thing.
2. I had to travel back to Poteau for the weekend.

I know I haven't been blogging long enough to take a break, but it's my blog... so I can do whatever I want.

Let's talk about Poteau (PO-DO) for a moment... Good ol' Poteau. There are many things people don't know about this great little town I grew up in, so here are a few interesting facts (and by interesting I mean completely uninteresting):

1. Poteau is home of Cavanal: The World's Highest Hill... it is just 1 foot from being a mountain, it is probably a mountain by now... but we will never let go of that title. Also, since Poteau is so small I can tell you who lives in every blurry house in that picture... and when I googled it the first picture that came up was taken by my 8th grade geography teacher.


2. I'm out of interesting Poteau facts, I guess it wasn't that interesting... oh well, I'm tired of typing anyway.... Anyone else know any interesting Poteau facts?

3. My friend Megan calls it Potato.

4. Maria's is the best Mexican restaurant ever.

On to a new topic! I have had the Duffy CD Rockferry for a long time now, and I am still not sick of it... I love every song on it, and I listen to it about 35 times a day.

Things That Make Me Old

HEY! Whatever happened to the ¢ sign? I remember in elementary school when we did math it would be 99¢ + 1¢ = $1.00. Now when we write things out it is $0.99 or $.99. Who got to make the new rule that cut out my beloved cent sign? I just don't think it's fair... it took me way less time to make the cent sign (after I googled it of course, because it isn't on the keyboard) then it did to type $.99. Now with the explosion of 99¢ value menus the cent sign could make its comeback! Eh? Eh? It really is more aesthetically pleasing, don't you think?

Anyway, I am starting a new movement to bring the ¢ sign back, so you guys better start using it... I'm not even kidding.

Just in case your wondering... it's ALT 0162 to make one... See how easy that is!

I Loathe Groundhog's Day

I have a list of three holidays that I absolutely hate... so you get to hear (or read) my rant about them...

1. New Year's Eve - I feel that this holiday is crap. I feel like there is too much pressure to go out and have fun, I'd rather sit at home like any other night, but whatever. I never feel any different at midnight, and for some reason even though I stay up until almost midnight every night I always want to go to bed before 12 on New Year's... maybe it's my inner self trying to proove a point. Who knows? I also hate it because I spend the first two months of the new year making scribble marks on the date line of my checks.

2. Valentine's Day - Again... I feel like there is too much pressure. If you are single it seems like all single people are ridiculously bitter that day (and I want to punch people who call it Singles Awareness Day) and people who are in a relationship have all of this pressure to be nice. I'll be nice when I feel like it! But I do like the candy... so that's a plus...

3. This is the big one.... GROUNDHOG'S DAY. This is the stupidest holiday of the year in my opinion. First of all... unless you are from whatever town the Groundhog lives in no one celebrates. Even bank employees have to work on Groundhog's Day, and they get off for EVERYTHING. You don't get any good food... and I refuse to admit that my fate for the next 6 weeks depends on whether a beaver with no tail sees his shadow... I'm going to kill that beaver someday...
