the reason why i love my college friends

chic: it's good to know we are drinking at the same time, even far apart. it's kind of like fievel looking at the moon at the same time his family is in those movies

me: thats the sweetest thing ive ever heard


the new snoop dogg = five million thumbs up

i'm really excited about this track. i had the unique opportunity to hear it when i was in nyc a few weeks ago and it completely blew my mind.

this shit is INCREDIBLE. it sounds like snoop has been smoking lots of weed and listening to masters at work. i can't wait to hear the rest of the album. i'm loving the vocoder, too.

punk rock pillow fight


i want to go to this!

after finding my high school yearbook and re-evaluating the awkward mess that i was ages 12-17, i have come to the conclusion that i used to be the biggest nerd ever.

i fully admit it. i was/am a huge dork.

You Look a Lot Less Like You in Person

Man #1: What is going on here?
Man #2: They are filming the new Sex in the City movie with Sarah Jessica Parker. They have the entrance to the subway blocked off.
Man #1: Wonderful. I wouldn't even know what Sarah Jessica Parker looks like.
Woman nearby: Hi. I'm Sarah Jessica Parker.
Man #1: Nice to meet you. Can I go home now?
Sarah Jessica Parker: Sure, go ahead.

You Are a Black and White Cookie

You're often conflicted in life, and you feel pulled in two opposite directions.
When you're good, you're sweet as sugar. And when you're bad, you're wicked!

zero 7 - somersault

ravenclaw wins, ugh

AP: Ravenstahl to be the winner in Pittsburgh mayor race

"His first year in office raised questions about whether his age and limited life experience may have been a liability.

He was dogged by a series of controversies over his conduct as mayor, including a private flight he made to New York with a co-owner of the Pittsburgh Penguins just hours after announcing a deal for a new, heavily subsidized hockey arena; a golf outing he took instead of attending a public hearing on domestic violence problems in the police department; and a Homeland Security-funded SUV he used to attend a Toby Keith concert with his wife and friends."


i am NOT a fan of ravenclaw. clearly he makes a lot of bad choices. i was really hoping for desantis to win. i'm disappointed, but not exactly surprised. i just hope ravenstahl's camp doesn't completely blow it. the burgh can do great things policy-wise. let's hope great things happen.

pittsburgh memories: concerts, raves and other awesomeness

when i first moved to pittsburgh, i went to a lot of shows. it was a fantastic time. my freshman year dorm was right down the street from two great venues, club laga and the beehive. some of my favorite college memories are at shows.

club laga always brought amazing acts. i saw dj craze, mc skibadee, brisk, bullfrog, juno reactor, dieselboy, and lots of crazy ass djs. the most memorable was probably juno reactor. if you ever get the chance to see them live, seriously go. you won't regret it.

at the beehive, i saw a ridiculous performance by dj funk. at one point, dj funk went back to grab another record, and passed out right on his crates. it was amazing. apparently he was too drunk to finish his set. we all got refunds. but i didn't even want one. that story is worth the $10 ticket.

at metropol i saw paul oakenfold , d:fuse, ATB, zebrahead and reel big fish. my favorite had to be d:fuse.

and i danced my booty off to john arnold at club havanna. probably one of my favorite nights in the burgh. ahhh, memories.

so in honor of his ridiculously awesome performance at the beehive, i give you dj funk...

one month (and a half) left in the burgh

i leave the burgh on thursday night to go apartment hunting in nyc. wish me luck!
