Lost - The Sideways Edition

I truly feel that people will never understand how much I LOVED this show (and even the finale) and part of it is Doc Jensen and his essays. He has a new one out that you can read here. I haven't read it yet because to be honest I don't have the time but I look forward to savoring every word. This is the last LOST gift and I am being tantric about it.

Wanted: Executive Control System

Bilingual people use their brains' executive control system more than others. I would normally say this is true but the article says: "There’s a system in your brain, the executive control system. It’s a general manager. Its job is to keep you focused on what is relevant, while ignoring distractions. It’s what makes it possible for you to hold two different things in your mind at one time and switch between them." I can barely hold unto one thought. I am going with this myth is BUSTED.

Smell is overrated

Teens would rather give up sense of smell rather than FB. This may be a bit fucked up but I agree with the teens. McCann Worldgroup polled 7,000 people between the ages of 16 and 30 in the U.S., the U.K., Spain, China, Brazil, India, Mexico, and several other countries to find that without technology, a majority of this group would feel isolated and out of the loop. Maybe because of my allergies I can't usually smell things anyway but I can always Facebook.

Rumor has it!

Restarting #100G8TESTCDS #16 Fleetwood Mac Rumors. 1 of the best EVER. Sad not in top 10. Damn you VH1. I Don’t Want To Know is the song!

Weirdly, tonight Glee is dedicating and episode to this CD that has been spinning in my iTunes for over a month since I got too busy at work. Also of interest is that today is when Stevie Nicks released her first new CD in 10 years. Guess waiting for stuff is worth it. Regardless, I love this CD and was once again exposed to it by my Momma. When she would sing to it though it sounded like "Jew can go jor own Vay." Ah memories.

Happy Birthday SUCKAS!

So Today is one of my favorite non-real holidays (aka I still have to go to work). The first being National Walk of Shame Day (3/18); St. Patty's (3/17); and National I Did WHAT day (11/1). I always play a nice little prank on my unsuspecting friends, foes, and psychos and this year is no different. This year I plotted ahead. When the great facebook profile migration of 2011 came my prankster voice woke up and said wouldn't it be funny to pull a facebook prank? Like hey, there is your birthday, Oprah says you shouldn't share that. What would happen if you just shifted it just a tad. Then lighting struck telling me to change it to April Fools. This entire time the only person I could tell was Laverne. Laverne would keep this a secret or else I would tell about the mysterious text messages we had been receiving from A (Never mind that is my TV life). I have been waiting patiently for this day and it is here.

Thank you all for contributing to it and I know have a birthday cake profile pic out of it! Over all a great day!

Friends Like These

Disk @EW voted #15 U2 Joshua Tree. My fav track? W/ or W/o u. Ross, I'm not playing your song. #100G8TESTCDS

This CD will always be the CD I stole from my sister to get back at her for something stupid. Regardless it always reminds me of Friends and being on a "break".

Joni's Blue Too

Disk @EW voted #14 Joni Mitchell - BLUE one of my fav CDs EVER. My fav track? A Case of You #100G8TESTCDS

This cd is what started my long tradition of falling for singer/songwriters. reviews of Jewel kept referencing this Joni person and I didn't know who he was. Thankfully My momma did. She should me her old records and away I went to Best Buy. A good friend also sent me the cd as an iTunes download years later. A CD that brings me two treasured memories.
