hate my brain

Some time in the last few years, something got mis-patched inside my head. I seem to have completely lost my sense of "hunger." Instead, "hunger" now seems to be cross-connected with "blind rage."

This is terribly inconvenient.

"Oh, I feel like strangling you, perhaps even more than you deserve. I must be hungry, even though I don't feel hungry at all."

It didn't used to work like this. I want my old brain back. This is so unfair.

"classic" halloween costumes




If you're in the Bay Area and you see a billboard for some radio station with a picture of Mick Jagger (or maybe some equivalent dinosaur) on it, pay close attention to the fact that due to their poor choice of a non-dropshadowed font, it appears to be captioned "ASS ROCK".

Speaking of which, I now have the VH1C ("Classics") channel. It's really something. It seems to be entirely videos from the early 1980s, but not the usual stream of "hit 80s" videos -- the other stuff. The stuff that MTV actually played in the 80s, like Foreigner, Scorpions, REO Speedwagon, Billy Squier, Triumph, Tesla, Kiss-without-makeup, LA Guns, Autograph, Britny Fox, and dozens and dozens of hair-metal bands I recognise but can't remember...

It's really amazingly horrible. I can't turn away from this car crash.
