He is one of the most awesome people in the world. He and Scott Mosier did a commentary on the Road House DVD (which [ profile] pepperlandgirl4 bought because our VCR ate our tape... we watch it for the Rifftrax), and it is so funny. I love that they talked about how homoerotic the movie is. I love it when DVD commentaries point out subtext and teh gay. XD

I saw Josh Ritter and Andrew Bird tonight with Flora, Staci, Kiry, Jasie, Jaime and my mom. IT WAS SO INCREDIBLE! I never listened to Josh Ritter, but he was really good and super adorable. He was always smiling!

It was a free concert at Gallivan Plaza, which is an open public area with a stage. So today around 2:30 Staci, Flora and I were wandering around downtown and went to the plaza early, and Andrew freaking Bird was practicing. There were about 20 other people there sitting on the grass watching him, and we got to see him play about 5 or 6 songs and it was so so so awesome. Since we got there so early we got really good spots too. We didn't stand up quick enough when people started coming, so we were a few people behind the barricade. I was standing a few feet away from the stage for most of the show, but it was still awesome.

Something really really cool happened too, I was standing there waiting for the show to start, and a girl right behind the barricade tapped my shoulder and asked if I had WILCO on my license plate. I said no, but my sister does. They recognized me from the Wilco concert in Colorado, so that was a pretty cool coincidence. We talked a bit through the show and towards the middle of Andrew's act she turned around and said, "Do you want to take my spot? I'm taller than you." So I got to be right in front! I saw Andrew Bird perform his beautiful beautiful music FROM THE FIRST ROW! I hope I see that girl again at another concert, she's really nice, and obviously has fantastic taste in music.

He played Nervous Tick Motion Of The Head To The Left! I wanted to hear Opposite Day and Sovay, but the fact that he played the other song totally makes up for not hearing those other two. It was such an amazing show, and I have a lot of pictures I'm going to post soon. :)

Right so I'm going to rest a bit before we go see The Dark Knight. OMG BATMAN!!!! :D

You want to know something that's made of awesome? I will, hopefully, be taking a Popular Culture class in the fall, and it's all about Cult TV. In the overview there's this little bit of awesome: "Students in "Cult TV" will participate by writing scripts, fanfiction or filming/acting mini 'episodes'" and "consider the interactive potential of online (and other) fandoms to counteract the passive nature of the medium, and even influence"

Dude. I will be watching BtVS, Monty Python, Veronica Mars (god willing we'll just watch season 1), Star Trek (TOS hopefully), The Sopranos, Big Love, and Twin Peaks and writing fanfic and talking about fandom, for college credit. I know college can make you hate your hobbies, but seriously, I don't know how I could pass up a class like that. :D
So there's this particle collider thingy, and some people are afraid that it could cause a black hole that could destroy the earth/universe. (NY Times link via [ profile] liberalrage)

I am just incredibly amused by the whole idea that the earth could end that way. It seems so anticlimatic. Like, everything in the universe just ending with some scientist in Geneva saying, "Woops!"

I also really like the idea of the world ending that way. It seems like it would be a quick and painless apocalypse. And I completely support the idea of a quick and painless apocalypse opposed to a nuclear war, or an asteroid, or some other terrible thing that wouldn't completely end the world, but just leave a few stragglers behind on a fucked up post-apocalyptic world.

Aaaaanyway, this bit is just awesome:

Dr. Arkani-Hamed said concerning worries about the death of the Earth or universe, “Neither has any merit.” He pointed out that because ofthe dice-throwing nature of quantum physics, there was some probability of almost anything happening. There is some minuscule probability, he said, “the Large Hadron Collider might make dragons that might eat us up.”

DUDE! A dragon apocalypse would be fucking awesome! Waaay better than a zombie apocalypse (which is one of my greatest irrational fears), because a dragon apocalypse would just look so much cooler. Before you die you get to see a FUCKING DRAGON SWOOP IN FOR THE KILL! My dying thoughts would be, "HOLY SHIT I'M GOING TO DIE! OMG LOOK AT THE DRAGON! AWESOME!"

EDIT: I was just thinking, this whole scenario, black holes and dragons, could be is probably a fucking awesome episode of Doctor Who.
