Taken To Heart

It is a sure sign that a culture has reached a dead end when it is no longer intrigued by its myths.

Tag! I'm It.

Well, thanks to good 'ol Ryan I'm tagged in some Interweb thing where I tell you 6 "weird" things about myself.

1)I love the South but I hate the hot weather. And when I say 'Love' you best believe I mean 'Love' L-U-V.

2)I am pretty sure that American culture peaked aesthetically circa 1965.

3)I go on food kicks where I will eat the same type of food for weeks and then not eat that thing for months.

4)I am not that great of a boyfriend but I am the best ex-boyfriend a girl could want. Seriously. I'll clean your house, I'll mow your lawn. Women should be lined up around the block to break up with me.

5)I'm embarrassingly sentimental but I hate when people romanticize the past.

6)I finally burnt out completely on politics and have decided that everyone sucks.

I don't think, though, that any of this is 'weird'. But, you know, forest for the trees and all that.

Ok, so now who do I tag? How about the one person I don't think will do this at all? That's right: Christa.

Never Hurts To Have A Reminder

When I was a teenager Athens, GA was a mythical place where the streets were paved with gold records. This video gave me the same chills I felt when I first heard the band.

Bullet Biting

After no internal debate, but a little gnashing of teeth concerning cost, I just spent $61.50 for a pair tickets to Jandek in Atlanta for February 17, 2007.
This is my Christmas present to myself.

Start The Heckling

No matter how much I try to avoid anything reeking of hippie I cannot deny the emotional pull I feel from Happy Xmas (War Is Over). A shining example of a simple, powerful, poignant song and an incredible campaign of public 'art-as-message'. John Lennon & Yoko Ono did good with this one. Actually, I like Yoko more than Lennon but, even so, with this project they fit hand in glove.

Why I love Athens...

Because we're the only city I know of that would put a 3-legged dog in a parade.
