So Borders has a thing going on right now where you can get 4 DVDs for the price of the three most expensive. Which is fortunate, because my brother got me a Borders Gift Card for Christmas. What is unfortunate is that they didn't have four of the same DVDs I wanted in the same store. I wanted Waking Life, The Complete Truth About De-Evolution, Stop Making Sense, and Rush's Chronicles. But though the in-store computer said they had the Devo DVD in Fort Lee, they didn't. Then I went to Paramus, where it said they had all four, but they didn't have Stop Making Sense after all. So I went back to Fort Lee and bought Queensrÿche's Self-Titled Remastered (Only The Warning and Promised Land to acquire; don't ask about Q2K), Waking Life ($8!), and Richard Matheson's I am Legend. So tonight I went to Paramus again, and picked up Devo and Rush, and also Queensrÿche's "Operation: LIVEcrime", which I thought was out of print. It's a live performance of "Operation: Mindcrime", which is probably the greatest album-length rock composition ever. That made three, so I went searching for another DVD, and I settled upon "THX 1138". All in all, I had one CD, one book, and five DVDs, all for under $15 out of pocket (about the price-with-tax of the book; I'd be in the black if I hadn't bought that).
Out of my little red book and my head today:
Reality is exempt from morality.
I want you to want me, not to need me.
I could love a brick. That's not to say that you're not special; merely to take the pressure off.

Abbreviated version cause I'm way late to bed. Spent two hours at the gym today, go me. Not to neglect my entire being (mind, body, spirit), I read about Schopenhauer and Nietzsche, as well as starting the section on John Stuart Mill as I did so.
