My online presence has finally become so splintered that I no longer know where to post anything. Thus, I post nothing.

05:56 pm - find a love to call your own
A half-smile for a half-wink in an article summarizing half (perhaps more) your life in the '00s.

Very unexpected, to say the least. I still recall the conversations about everything of which you spoke.


Thank you.

Copying the original and then becoming brash about it does not make you the new original. In fact, it just makes you an annoying counterfeit with no depth or genuineness.

03:59 pm - All I want from you was one french kiss
Radio again tonight, kittens. It's a permanent gig for now, the co-hosting deal. I love it already and I can't imagine I'll tire of it soon. As my lovely frere put it to me, "You've been doing this all your life, in one capacity or another. Just be yourself."

In any case, the theme tonight is summer songs. I've crafted the perfect little compilation that's sure to get you bopping. Listen online at ckcufm.com or at 93.1 FM in Ottawah-wah. Stoked!

xoxox.

PS: How are you? Yes, you.

11:24 am - do you two know each other?
So.

There is a sweet boy who does a sweet radio show every Tuesday night at eleven p.m. EDT. And, by some strange stroke of luck, I shall be accompanying him this evening and programming half of the music. You know what that means... a hell of a lot of canindierawk (translation: canadian indie rawk/rock).

The theme may or may not be music to fuck to...

Listen online: http://www.ckcufm.com

Should be grand. Feel free to throw some last minute suggestions my way, if you feel so inspired.

12:59 pm - the place is dead as heaven on a saturday night
'Or maybe memories are like karaoke-- where you realize up on the stage, with all those lyrics scrawling across the screen's bottom, and with everybody clapping at you, that you didn't know even half the lyrics to your all-time favourite song. Only afterwards, when someone else is up on stage humiliating themselves amid the clapping and laughing, do you realize that what you liked most about your favourite song was precisely your ignorance of its full meaning-- and you read more into it than maybe existed in the first place. I think it's better to not know the lyrics to your life.'

I'm going to see Leonard Cohen tonight for the second time in the span of a year. I feel very, very lucky right now.

teehee. The only complaint [which it isn't even, really] I had about the movie was the fact that I could not stop that Buck 65 line [from Blanc-Bec] from running through my head throughout the entire film.

David Cronenberg, I <3 you. So so much.

Also: The water is inexplicably off in my apartment. This does not bode well for a cleaning spree today. First world problems, yeah!

Also as well: I am going to be an aunt again. Wee! I'm not so big on the little ones myself, but I am happy for my brother. [He said I couldn't put it on Facebook, but he said nothing about Livejournal ha ha. Mostly because he is not modern enough to even know what it is, really. Sneaky!]

Also again: I am in love love love with my summer classes. Sign language? Hawt. Third Wave Feminisms? Hawter! Both profs that are all 'it's summer.... it's a fun course!'? Hell yes!

10:09 am - Remember How I Made You Scream
Man, I would just about kill for any copy of Danny Michel and Luke Doucet covering Tom Waits' 'In the Neighbourhood.' Granted, I know it was years ago that they toured together and did it as a duet for an encore, but... someone must have a copy, right? I have the lyrics scribbled down by Luke [to remember them on stage], but they hardly have the same effect.

Why? Because, as the brainchild of the lovely krk, there will be a superb cover songs party in the not-too-distant future!

C'mon... doesn't that sound stellar? A [dance?] party based solely on an amassed collection of weird and wonderful covers of just about any and all songs you could imagine.

Feel free to suggest some of your favourites in the comments. Aww yeah!

09:38 am - Students!
Hello my fellow student-y minded friends. They are offering a wonderful course at Carleton this summer [May-June], but they are currently just shy of enough people being enrolled for it to run. Hence, consider this a somewhat desperate [ha ha] plea for anyone looking to take a summer course. It's a third year women's studies course on activism. The prof is awesome and the reading list makes it look like it will be a barrel of monkeys.

Edit: Got the prof to email me the actual description again:

WOMN 3003 A: Selected Topics on Gender and Women's Studies: ˜Third Wave Feminisms: Monday and Wednesday, 18:05 – 20:55. This seminar explores feminist thought and action which is being called third wave feminism. We will examine readings and cultural products – films, videos, music, ‘zines, websites, etc. – to interrogate what this label means, and how theories and practices intersect in third wave feminism. Students will explore underlying concepts of third wave including generational age, ideological position and historical moment. The course is structured around theory and writings from anthologies including Listen Up, To Be Real, Colonize This!, Manifesta, Third Wave Agenda, Catching A Wave and Turbo Chicks, as well as from key articles that make connections to past feminist movements.

Please pass on to anyone who may be interested. Please!

I <3 the Dewey decimal system. And yes, I can spit out my favourite call numbers. What's so weird about that?

01:35 pm - Wouldn't It Be Nice If We Were Older...
This seems to be the conversation I've been having the most often as of late:

'What does your tattoo say?'
'Which one?'
'Uhhh...'


I'm sorry. I'm not a word geek for nothing, I suppose...

I've also been totally nerding out on the Doctor Who lately and loving it. Maybe too much, but c'mon! And thanks to the ever-lovely clockworkboho, I now have a zillion and one Doctor Who songs. Sometimes, I'm spoiled.

And, like everyone else, I cannot express enough how bloody stoked I am for this gorgeous and delicious weather. Everyone's welcome on the balcony anytime. It's not as though I ever step off it from morning to night. Mmm sunshine and tunes and internerding.

Mod tonight, if anyone is interested. The usual shenanigans involved: drinks at my place first, then heading over to Mod around eleven or so, I'm guessing. Feel free to text/call me to see where we're at. Should be ridiculously entertaining, as per usual.
