Oh man. So, the company I work for has restricted internet access. I’m not gonna get all into it, seeing how Big Brother is watching us and all that, but how am I supposed to prank people with Rebecca Black or Rick Astley songs, now? How am I going to survive without Nyan Cat? What about the trolling!? What will I ever do without the trolling!? I’ll never find out how magnets work or how to save my horse. A life without Hipster Cat isn’t worth living. I still find myself yelling “Y U NO [insert action here] at my cat, but it’s just not the same. How am I going to watch videos of mama cats hugging kittens? Or incredibly gay narrators talking about wildlife? Now, I’ll never be an internet genius. Thanks, alot!
I’ll tell you one thing for sure, the amount of office pranks will significantly increase. We’re really going to have to find ways to entertain ourselves, now. Problem?
Anyway, so now I’m going to have to get used to doing this from home. Really, though, I didn’t get any work time back. I went in early all the time so I could get in there and read my email and check my social networking sites and, well, blog…but (most of) that was done before my day actually started. Except for my lunch break, being a complete internet junkie. On the plus side, I get to sleep in for another half an hour!
Because of this, I did manage to finally “decorate” our office of almost a year of being in the new apartment. I’ll have to post some pics soon, because it’s pretty effin’ rad. So, at least now, I have a usable work space. You will really to be able to tell the extent of my Pittsburgh Penguins addiction. It’s a sickness.
Ahhh, here it is.
I have a ton on new fodder, too, which is awesome! Patrick Wensink‘s back with a new book, there’s another Metal Monday in the works with another Pittsburgh band, River Runs Scarlet, I just got like, 6 CDs (Ben Harper – Give Til It’s Gone, Owl City – All Things Bright and Beautiful, Death Cab For Cutie – Codes and Keys, She Wants Revenge – Valleyheart, Moby – Destroyed, and Flogging Molly – Speed of Darkness. I’ve also had Explosions In The Sky – Take Care, Take Care, Take Care and Fleet Foxes – Helplessness Blues for a while, but just haven’t got around to actually listening to them. Superultramegalame.
Well, here’s to hoping I survive a world without Facebook. I’ll miss you, internet! For old times, sake, though, let’s have a little fun.
“Crazy, Nasty Ass, Honey Badger”
Wow, Steven Smith loves him some Cruze-arati…and good punk. The former “Untitled Rock Show Host” has done some awesome stuff so far [see: Less Than Jake], and he’s back again with another of my favorite bands, the Bouncing Souls!
Check it out!
Yes, I still have a giant, girly, crush on Bryan. And yes, I want those shoes. Happy Monday, errbody!
So, Steven Smith, formerly of “Steven’s Untitled Rock Show” on Fuse is doing a whole “Music Unexpected” thing, and it’s pretty cool. It’s relatively new, but he’s already gone behind the scenes with A Great Big Pile of Leaves and Less Than Jake, plus, he’s spent a day with Goom Radio in New Jersey.
From what I hear, there’s more fun stuff to come, but in the meantime, check out his quality hangout time with Less Than Jake at their Philly show at the Trocadero! (I know, a Pittsburgh show would have been better…this might also be my crazy hockey fan-dom talking.) It’s pretty rad! (And yes, I still love LTJ, despite that whole TV/EP situation.)
I think they made it farrrr too easy on him! What kind of roadie actually gets to “watch” the show when they’re done!? They’re too busy making sure things run smoothly. That’s kinda what roadies do.
Other than that, though…pretty good stuff! Stay tuned for more fun things from “Music Unexpected”!
