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.
  • "The past is history. The future is mystery. Today is a gift." -Eleanor Roosevelt

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.

  • Trader

    Idea for a superpower: Trader Can teleport stuff over any (?) distance, but only if exchanging for something of roughly similar volume (mass?).…

  • Well past 3,000 livejournal entries by now

    If I were going to be a Spanish Language Superhero, I would be El Mismo, which means "the same." My power would be that I would be perfectly matched…

    Superpower: Farting up a storm. Literally. (Name: Fartin' Gary?)
