Why? [Click here to find out]
I thought I'd already seen everything on the 'Net until I downloaded the Stumble Upon browser! It's where I found BabyAnimalz.com, by the way.
No. 1 Kitchen
A new Chinese restaurant that moved in across the street from us. They also serve SUSHI. We have eaten there 2-3x a week since they opened. We found out last weekend that spicy lobster roll + champagne = Food of the Gods. We're doing more of that this weekend as a second Valentine's Day celebration. Oh and they cook with 100% vegetable oil, so it's not all heavy and greazy and nasty.
Speaking of Addictions
Why are my soaps suddenly so Goddamn serious??
General Hospital: A deadly epidemic is sweeping over the city and even worse, the run-amok virus is a mutation that has been developed in a lab somewhere by THE GOVERNMENT for biological warfare. People - including characters that I've grown up with since grade school - are DYING on the show and have been almost at death's door...like...every day now for the last couple of weeks.
Maybe this is a good thing, because I've been deleting episodes off the Tivo for the first time in a long time. Maybe it will make me pick up a book.
The OC: Cute surfer guest star boy falls from a cliff and DIES. I'm just thankful for the whole "socialite debutante turned trailer Goddess" storyline...that's some great comic relief. "Gus, I told you I didn't want any pigeon pie!"
The L Word: Favorite character gets breast cancer which has already mestasticized and she's at death's door. But...the Pam Grier with "bony-assed white boy" love story is funny. And Alan Cumming is sheer genius. That is one sexy-ass...um...bisexual?
Anyway, I know it's intelligent to cover relevant social issues in TV shows, but on all three of my soaps at once? I CAN'T HANDLE THE TRUTH! I never thought I'd find Lost and Battlestar Galactica to seem waaaay easier to watch than General Hospital and The OC. The L Word has always had a lot of dark stuff woven in it, so...okay, that's fine, L Word. But OC and GH? Get back to beautiful people falling in and out and in and out of love again, okay? I know it's February sweeps but...your job is to BE my Prozac, not make me feel like taking it, okay?!

Got this from a music newsletter that I'm on, submitted by a guy who understands the lies and who won't tolerate them either. And he's only 18! By Gods, maybe there is some hope for the future of music after all!
When you talk about image you're right it's more about what you say in your art then how you look. But you know what i've learned in my very short 18 years of life on this earth? Image is like the sprite commercial so aptly put it, nothing. Image is a load of bullshit everyone in the music industry decided to conjure up to help them sell records when there was no talent to be sold to us. Hence Britney Spears. She had that classic innocent southern innocent but gorgeous angle to her and the record execs said fuck it, it'll sell, and put it out there. This "music" is an insult to my intelligence. Where's the expression of yourself? You've got somebody writing the lyrics for you, your producer coming up with the beat over a fucking computer with no soul, and then the one part these pop stars today have to do, sing, is drastically altered over this same bullshit computer. You want real music? Go see a Robert Randolph and the Family Band show. Go listen to Blood Sugar Sex Magik. Go see Pearl Jam. Go see moe.. Do anything but just use your brain and don't listen to this bullshit that is nothing more than music without any balls. These mentioned bands didn't care about image and basically gave the rest of the world a big FUCK YOU by doing what they want. THAT is where music really
lives. [Bill Kain]
