lord, From this chair of mine...

Holiday whine

I hear people talking about presents... what they got for Christmas...

I hope they appreciate what they have. All I got for X-mas was kicked out of school. That and $100 I spent already going to Boston (not complaining! I had fun). I am back to square one. Or zero. Or negative one.

Feh, I've always been underpriveledged. What makes this year so bad? I just hope all the assholes out there whining about having to go to class appreciate that some of us can't go to class, even if we want to. Assholes. And I thought I was self-centered. Tongue firmly in cheek on that last remark. (Hint: I am self-centered.)

I did not get a CD burner like at least three people. Not that I could afford blanks.
I did not get a digital camera or TV card or in fact any peripherals.
No CDs, not even bad ones, nor enough cash left over to buy one.
I am the one person out of 10 nowadays without a cel phone (of the people I know).
etc.

In fact, the only thing I did get for the holidays was love. So I guess I can't complain, right?

Thank you, love. Crushes, too. :)

Ugh

Save the Last Dance has a song on the soundtrack posthumously contributed by Biggy Smalls. This gives me an idea for a movie. The premise is simple and obvious: Rap Star dies. His legacy is more profitable than his career. Studio finds sound-alike voice, uses voice record new 'unreleased studio tracks' ostensibly recorded by the actual 'artist' before he died. Studio makes billions, but they get so preoccupied milking the cash cow that people get suspicious that the artist's unreleased corpus was larger than his living work to the extent- get this, this is the genius part- that people make a movie based on these suspicions.

Malkovich? Malkovich Malkovich!

Well, okay, maybe that idea is a little recursively egotistical (not egotistically recursive, thank God).

Please forgive what's written below. I've been watching way too much Cinemax. There is a problem in American Cinema today. I mean, ewww.
