Have a seat. Let's talk.

So, you know how I was talking about Boyz II Men last week? Well, guess who's going to see them live in concert on Monday?
My plan is to go to the show, scream along to every song, and then try and get impregnated by at least one of them, and that way I can hear Motownphilly live in person whenever I want. It's called blackmail, baby.

I have a question for you guys. Was Set Adrift On Memory Bliss actually written about Christina Applegate? Do you honestly think she got drunk and had sex with the big fat lead singer at some point in the late 80's, and when he tried to call her the next day, he found she had given him a fake number, so he wrote a song about the whole ordeal? My best guess is that the song was initially written for someone a little more in the lead singer's range, someone like Natalie from The Facts Of Life, and when they tried to market the song to the masses, everyone just got kinda nauseous. So, they threw Applegate's name in there to give it some star power, and *presto*, the song lands a primo spot on Dancemix '92. I don't know, but it's been on my mind a bit these past few days. Any thoughts?

I've been seeing quite a few commercials on MTV for Date My Playlist. I think it's a show where they pick you some dates based on a four-song selection.
If I had to submit a playlist, it would probably look a little something like this:
1. Everybody Wants Something - The Zit Remedy (p.s. If you ever start to feel bad about the way things are going for you, just watch that video, and realize that you're not a 30-something computer programmer that spends his weekends re-tooling Degrassi songs in a super serious way).
2. Big Things Poppin - T.I. (have I mentioned how much I love this one yet?)
3. Iesha - Another Bad Creation
4. The Object of My Desire - Starpoint (I really like this video, because it's full of early 80's neofunkers, trying their best to be "real" infront of the camera without doing blow, because MTV said no to that idea).
Quite frankly, I don't know if I could even handle dating someone that would choose me based on those four songs, because they'd be way too awesome. They'd probably just want to have dance-parties all day long, and would probably have their own slurpee machine, and I'd probably die of happiness, so I really don't think I should even bother submitting an application.

No way! I can't believe you posted about degrassi.

I just recently found a old newspaper article that I cut out from when Snake and Joey came to X. Awesome.

Goal #1 is lacking without you. It's like my skin just doesn't know what to do with the sun without you around.

your friends to the south could only get degrassi via public tv. local programming often put other dippy shit in its time slot. that's why i had to get the dvds.

thanks Canada ;)

If liking Ready or Not makes you gay, then I'd be hosting the Gay Olympics right now.
