Ha ha, just kidding, I post all the time.
There is this game called Insaniquarium. It’s been the #1 download on Yahoo! Games off and on for a while, and so the other day, I decided to play it — because obviously, other people are NEVER WRONG. Well, it turns out, it’s an elegant game of strategy and thought and… bullshit, it’s basically one big useless time suck. But I’m on the final level, and the little fish are really making me some good money. I’m more than a littel saddened by this after the Stella Adler lecture on your days being made up of whatever you do every day (uh, she phrased it better), but… at least I’m not actually doing crack.
In other news, I’ve been listening to the same CD over and over and over, on loop, since landing in D.C. after leaving Massachusetts. I copied the Phantom Planet CD, The Guest, to my laptop’s hard drive in the car on the way to the airport and listened to it on loop for the plane ride. It’s an immensely playable CD, similar to BNL’s Stunt in that I don’t want to skip anything, and I can either use it as driving music to pay attention to or as music to keep up in the background while I do other things. I can actually blame this CD, in part, for drawing me into a current TV entertainment: The first song on the CD, “California,” is the theme to “The O.C.” Upon playing this for Brett, he insisted we watch a few episodes. I must admit, probably I got hooked more easily because I’d had a lot of champagne by the time we started watching, but… definitely hooked. There, I’ve admitted it. But I think of the music as separate from the show. And I highly recommend the whole CD, particularly “Lonely Day” and “Turn Smile Shift Repeat” and “California,” which is peppy in that 90210 kind of way. And fun trivia: Jason Schwartzman, of Rushmore fame, was the drummer for Phantom Planet — he has now quit the band to act full time.
