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
