Chicago > Rush

It was Family Weekend, so EIU got a band to come and serenade us. Last year it was Kool and the Gang, and I contemplated going, because they're pretty cool (yes, I went there), but in the end, I did other things. This year, though, Chicago came, and the day before the concert, I broke down and bought a ticket; it's my senior year, so I may as well have some fun.

Perhaps I'm too used to Rush concerts; without someone smoking a joint behind me and someone else drinking next to me, it just doesn't feel like a concert. I suppose people can't get inebriated at a college concert, but still, it just wasn't the same. I didn't feel too out of place, though; I knew most of the songs (I was disappointed that they didn't play "Does Anyone Really Know What Time It Is?") and I got up and sang along at some points. It was weird going to a concert by myself, though, especially with this entire family sitting next to me.
In sum, I would prefer Rush, but I don't think EIU could afford them. If they ever do, I'll stop by.

FutureMe Says Happy Birthday!

Today is my 21st birthday. I got a billion texts and Facebook wall posts, five birthday cards, and three or four phone calls from family, but only one email from the past.

The following is an e-mail from the past, composed 7 months and 18 days ago, on January 25, 2011. It is being delivered from the past through FutureMe.org

Dear FutureMe,
You are now 21 years old. Please don't make a fool of yourself, drink until you're sick, or gamble all your money away. Stay safe, and stay smart.

Toby Jones' _____ ASS Various Entrepreneurial Escapades!

Spock recently brought to my attention a guy named Toby Jones, who makes various completely bombastic commercials. What struck me as interesting is the 708 area code on all the phone numbers; clearly, he's an Illinois native, from somewhere in Cook Country, which is where I grew up. Sadly, when I tried to reverse look-up the numbers, I got no results, so they must be cell phone numbers. Spock tried to call at least one, and the voicemail was full.

The gimmick is that Jones has several business enterprises, which all combine two seemingly random separate businesses, and all of which have the word "ass" in the title.

Here are some of the videos. These are definitely NSFW, as they contain frequent vulgarities.

Jones' Big Ass Truck Rental & Storage
"The fact of the matter is, I'm pretty drunk right now..."

Jones' Good Ass BBQ & Foot Massage
"We got fine dinosaur meats!"

Jones' Cheap Ass Prepaid Legal and Daycare Academy
"Prepaid, meaning you need to pay before."

Jones' Big Ass Truck Rental & Storage (2nd Spot)
"Your mother-in-law kinda skinny. I can fold her up, put her on my back on a bicycle, and bring her down on this motorcycle."

Trust me, he is the sexiest man on these interwebs.

Just Say No... To Everything

Who's ready for a link- and picture-intensive blog post! ME!

Today, I went to the first Anime Club meeting of the year. We spent the meeting deciding on which series [plural] we should watch for the year. Rather than jabber on and on about how much we jabbered on and on during the meeting, I will instead introduce the top two series we chose in each category, accompanied by fan art from DeviantART [click on the picture for full-size!]. The *asterisk* indicates which series we will partake in.


*Samurai Champloo

G Gundam


*Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt

Ghost Stories



*Black Butler

*voting in progress*

The Big O


*we watch both*

The Girl Who Leapt Through Time


And, as an added treat, have these TOP THREE WEIRD ANIME PARODIES!

1. Dragonball Z Abridged
Watch them ALL!

2. Hellsing Ultimate Abridged
And then, watch all of THESE!

3. YuGiOh Abridged: The Vagina Monologues
I believe the count was 87 vaginas. That is NOT OVER 9000!!!!

22 August 2011


The first day of classes went well enough. I only have two classes per day, apart from Friday, when I have one; whenever my professor and I figure out my honors independent study time, I may wind up having three classes in a day. To put it mildly, I'm going to get rather bored, rather quickly, even with the numerous papers I have to write. So. Very. Bored. I went to Gays in the Park this afternoon; it mostly consisted of the EIU Pride members and myself sitting around at a local park eating pizza and reminiscing.

I already know I'm going to wind up playing far too much Dungeons and Dragons Online (DDO), my MMO of choice. And I'm going to read way too many graphic novels and manga; just joking on that last statement--there's no such thing as too much reading.

As it stands, I'm too bored to even come up with a list. I sincerely hope that tomorrow is better, insofar as classes, social interactions, etc...

After a Long Hiatus...

Greetings from Stevenson Tower, the tallest building in Coles County! Rather than living with Freak [she got an apartment with her friend, Spaghetti Laura], I decided to try a different residence hall. So, here I am, living in a suite with three people I don't know. It'll be interesting to see how they react to my being bisexual. Ah well, that's just one aspect of me, after all.



I'm back at school and I've made it my goal to finally get back to this lovely blog of mine. I've been sporadically posting random quiz results and occasionally LGBT-type things, but I feel that I really need to get back to legitimately writing, because this is going to be one stressful semester. I'm a senior here at EIU, and I managed to get into the department honors program for psychology [I may have mentioned that before], so I'm writing a thesis this year! Lots of stress. ALL OF THE STRESS.

Over the summer, I was a camp counselor at two local Girl Scout camps. I can honestly say that it was one of the best experiences I've ever had in my life. My fellow counselors were amazing women, and I believe that some of them will be my lifelong friends. Also, we got to have totally awesome nicknames, such as:

However, rather than try and update you on the many months of my life that have not been documented in this blog, I think I'd rather just keep posting on current events as they happen. Also, lists will be happening, the first of which being....

Angel Sanctuary
Angelic Layer
Cardcaptor Sakura
Haruhi Suzumiya
Lucky Star
Rozen Maiden
Strawberry Panic
Wandering Son

It's good to be home, both in the physical and internet worlds,

When you were little, what did you want to be when you grew up?

When I was little, I was obsessed with rocks, and I wanted to be a gemologist. I still think it would have been awesome.

If you could get a tattoo... what would you get and where?

If I could get a tattoo, I would get a Greek psi on the top of my left foot. The psi is the symbol for psychology, and it would be on my foot so that I could actually see it, especially in flip-flop season!

What do you think is the best way to defeat terrorism?

We need to stop sensationalizing it, for one thing. That kind of attitude sends everyone into a tizzy. I think terrorists are like children; if we ignore them, they won't have anyone paying attention to them, and they'll stop trying so hard.

Would you rather work at a large company or a small one?

I would prefer to work at a small company, because I would like to have the chance to get to know my coworkers, rather than just being a cog in the machine.
