wheres them greener grasses

Winter soltice today!

I saw Up in the Air this weekend- george clooney can say anything and
I would buy it but the movie itself kind of frustrated me. Basically
george clooney's job is to fly around the country 95% of the year to
deliver the bad news during layoffs. It is all about his independence,
transient relationships, and general lack of ties to anyone which in
the end, proved to not be a good thing. Not very Buddhist. The movie
began with these head shots of people really pissed about just getting
fired- "what am i going to tell my family", "how will we eat", some
light crying... etc. etc. and then the movie ended with these same
people saying something to the extent of "at least I have my wife to
be by my side", "thank god i have family"...

Basically it just really annoyed me that the one consolation for being
fired was something that is pretty rare- a successful family and
relationship. This was the only consolation, leaving all single,
separated, divorced, excommunicated, etc. etc. people who are probably
in the majority with no solace. The movie did not mention these people
nor did it fill in a number of blanks- like the babe frequent flier
that george clooney sleeps with in hotels around the country only to
find out that she had a husband and kids and had "succeeded" in
comparison. For a number of reasons I identified with ol' george in
the movie and was more or less left for dead in the ending. Now I am
pretty pissed about it.

But otherwise a pretty epic weekend. Sam and Drew blessed boston's
sacred soils for a pretty good reunion on saturday night. Ramming
speed and Witches with Dicks benefit show for cancer sold out and
raged in allston. Then a snowy walk to phily native: eric Rhorrryyy
(phonetically) 's christmas party down the street. Highlights include
talking heads dance party and eric belligerently humping the christmas
tree. And the girl that john brought from the Sports Depot after the
saints game. Drew wrastled with eric some, peaches tap danced, i took
a picture of eric drinking a hurricane on the ground while someone
used their boot to forcefully nudge his face, sam kept the dancing
torch a-flame and mel's bufont (I might be spelling that wrong- but
her hair style) survived a snow storm. Then a sleepover that i woke up
from first and crept out sneakily (not really, but everyone was still
passed out at noon and I was dying for some eggs). Thanks dudes and
dudettes- it was pretty fun.

over and out.

Ladies and Gentlemen

It's time to think about who yr favorite person of the past decade was. That's right, it's time to think about not just Man Of The Year, but MAN OF THE DECADE. Past winners Cory J Cocomazzi and Cedric Lilly are certainly in the running, but perhaps use the comment section here to nominate yr Man Of The Decade. Will it be John Racine? Dr. Robottomley? Could Samantha King, Grr pull it off? Will Logan make a case for himself after FINALLY graduating? Will Cory steal our hearts with his Smiths renditions once again and win for the second year in a row, prompting a dance party around him that will make him very uncomfortable?

Anyways, yes. New Orleans New Years is going to be epic. And now I will leave you with this.

It's not me it's you

DEALBREAKER: You’ve Been In A Sarah Palin Video On YouTube, Saying Stupid Shit

This video is so worth watching. My favorite part is the speculation that since so many of our freedoms are being taken away there might not be an election in 2012 and there's been back room talk of martial law. Who knew?

DEALBREAKER: You’re Not A Delicious Pizza

I think we've all been here.
