RIAA Boycott, Strangers With Candy, &c.

March is RIAA Boycott month. Tell everyone you know.

I recently learned that Orlando, my clowning teacher last year, is in fact Orlando from Strangers With Candy. Holy fuckall. He also went to Juliard. Blow me blue! (special note: if you downloaded SWC but still haven't watched it - you know who you are - you're on notice! Watch that shit or else!)

We just had our first JimmyDay: a single 7-hour marathon class with James Edward Tripp. It is orgastic. The next two Friday's are also Jimmiganzas.

All is vanity

This blog started as a daily journal of my happenings. I've gotten significantly lazier about posting over the year, but here's a rough outline of my schedule this semester.

  1. Wake up at...
    1. 7* on Mon, Tues, Thur
    2. 9 on Wed, Fri
  2. Get breakfast**
  3. Go to class***
  4. Get lunch****
  5. Go home and check The Internet
  6. Watch The News Hour with Jim Lehrer at 7
  7. Go to the gym at 8
  8. Eat dinner at Palladium (the gym) at 9.30
  9. Go home and do more computer stuff
  10. Watch Daily Show and Colbert Report from 11-12
  11. Do God knows what until I realize it's 2am
  12. Crawl into bed
* 12pm if I don't go to class
** Lunch if I don't go to class
*** NOT go to class if I don't go to class
**** An early dinner if I didn't go to class

I hope this provides a useful insight into my life. If you ever look at your watch and wonder, "I wonder what Scott's doing right now?" you'll know*****. Well, goodnight everybody.

***** Or you won't know, depending on whether or not I went to class

... Therefore iAm

New York state Senator Carl Kruger is proposing legislation to ban iPods and other consumer electronics from city sidewalks. Here's the story. Here's my letter to Senator Kruger:

As a New Yorker much in love with my iPod, I feel obliged to rebuke your proposed ban of personal electronics from city streets. The notion that an iPod could ever lead a person ill is wholly wrongheaded: My iPod is a glistening white angel of purity who would never harm a soul. To the contrary, it's lively melodies have often a time spared me such tragedies as may befall my more languid un-plugged self. Buzz-kill, for instance, frowning, another, and dispiritedness all are avoided by the proper use of an iPod. The funky-tunes and mad-beats send a hoppin' rhythm right were one needs it most: the hips! Should I, possessed in the wild throws of trance-dancing, find my way into oncoming traffic, all the better! Young though I am, fears of a painful or disreputable death plague me oft. Murder or fall-from-great-height or asphyxiation-by-corndog seem to me as distasteful as soiling my old-man diapers for the last time. But, to be seized by the lord at the climax of Bohemian Rhapsody... ushered gently into His hands by the hood of a Buick... Hallelujah! It's not how long you live, it's how many much Queen you listened to.

Although... I'd worry about the iPod. I don't think it comes to heaven with me (they have, like, super GodPods or something up there, right?) and chances are it wouldn't fair the Buick as well as my immortal soul. Its delicate electronics strewn all about the sidewalk would be a hideous sight indeed, and the loss of a consumer device is never a pleasant affair. No, that wouldn't do at all. I'm afraid I'll have to look both ways for Mimsy's sake (Mimsy is my iPod). Very well then. I promise you, Senator, that I will not jump in front of traffic while wearing my iPod. There, all settled. Now about this proposed legislation... "What legislation?" Exactly Senator.

-Scott & Mimsy

More or Less

The other night I dreamt that Dick Chaney and I were solving a paranormal mystery together. I told Mr. Chaney that I thought he was a really good, honest and decent human being. What have I been smoking?

I've got a new project. I'm writing an IM client. I'll tell you more when it's awesome.

Super Bowl tomorrow!

Nothing is ruined, everything is fine.
