"I'm gonna trash your face. You know I've already told everybody what you're into."

So I FINALLY got to see Aaron and Julie's place in Carbondale and it was under circumstances of making the trip without Mom which, admittedly, made it a hell of a lot more fun than it would have been otherwise. Julie was a lot less shy than when I've ever talked to her before, and I'm kind of realizing that she is fucking adorable. Like when she enthusiastically proclaimed across the room to Aaron that we both consider Moulin Rouge our favorite movie. Or when she mentioned something about how she thinks of me whenever she sees cute red kitchen things in stores because I mentioned some time back at Christmas that my roommates whipped me up my dream kitchen for my birthday. I may have actually talked to her and some of Aaron's friends more than Aaron throughout the night.

But anyway, the whole point was to see Aaron's band. They're called Whorehouse Piano, but of course they don't have a piano, they have him on guitar and an insane drummer and a singer who clearly entertained more adequately for being drunk the entire time. I bumped into his table when he was counting out everybody's cash and he kept jokingly threatening to fight me out back after that. After he yelled this subject title at the tramp-stamped bartender, my dad and I totally lost it, and I was like, "Where did they find this guy?!" And he said, "He was voted entertainer of the year in Carbondale."

I think the best part of the evening was my dad being drunkenly praiseworthy of my brother after the show, saying things like, "YOU ARE AN ENCHANTING SCULPTOR OF SOUND" or whatever. And then babbling about finding five-leaf clovers in the desert. I am not making this up. At that point I was actually made the designated driver for the entire family, which I still find hilarious. But by the time we actually left Aaron was sobered up. I conveyed my relief by reminding him that I did in fact run into his last car and didn't want to put a dent in his new one.

I would just like to mention that it is really unfair that I can never hang out with Zachary Quinto. This guy talks about Carl Jung in Playboy interviews. Seriously, he starts talking about how Dick Cheney is such a scary person because he isn't aware that he has a shadow, and I'm like YOU'RE IN PLAYBOY NOBODY KNOWS WHAT "JUNGIAN" MEANS BUT I LOOOOOVE YOOUU.
"If you're not aware and willing to look at that part of yourself, your unconscious, your Shadow, then the shit we don't want to look at manifests itself as dysfunctional relationships, addiction, aggression and bad choices. That adds up and creates personal discord and disharmony, which then affect relationships, then society, then the world."

Does anybody know when Project Runway starts?

P.S. Finally sorta got into Heroes.

Another trip to Bloomington to remove my stuff from the house and I still haven't gotten everything. This was going to be the night I got back on a slightly sane sleep schedule, but goodness, look at the time.

"I played video games in a drunken haze, I was seventeen years young"

Your result for The Personality Defect Test...


You are 86% Rational, 14% Extroverted, 29% Brutal, and 0% Arrogant.

You are the Robot! You are characterized by your rationality. In fact, this is really ALL you are characterized by. Like a cold, heartless machine, you are so logical and unemotional that you scarcely seem human. For instance, you are very humble and don't bother thinking of your own interests, you are very gentle and lack emotion, and you are also very introverted and introspective. You may have noticed that these traits are just as applicable to your laptop as they are to a human being. You are not like the robots they show in the movies. Movie robots are make-believe, because they always get all personable and likeable after being struck by lightning, or they are cold, cruel killing machines. In all reality, though, you are much more boring than all that. Real robots just sit there, doing their stupid jobs, and doing little else. If you get struck by lightning, you won't develop a winning personality and heart of gold. (Robots don't have hearts, silly, and if they did, they would probably be made of steel, not gold.) You also won't be likely to terrorize humanity by becoming an ultra-violent killing machine sent into the past to kill the mother of a child who will lead a rebellion against machines, because that movie was dumb as hell, and because real robots don't kill--they horribly maim at best, and they don't even do that on purpose. Real robots are boringly kind and all too rarely try to kill people. In all my years, my laptop has only attacked me once, and that was only because my brother threw it at me. In short, your personality defect is that you don't really HAVE a personality. You are one of those annoying, super-logical people that never gets upset or flustered. Unless, of course, you short circuit. Or if someone throws a pie at you. Pies sure are delicious.

To put it less negatively:

1. You are more RATIONAL than intuitive.

2. You are more INTROVERTED than extroverted.

3. You are more GENTLE than brutal.

4. You are more HUMBLE than arrogant.


Your exact opposite is the Class Clown.

Other personalities you would probably get along with are the Hand-Raiser, the Emo Kid, and the Haughty Intellectual.



If you scored near fifty percent for a certain trait (42%-58%), you could very well go either way. For example, someone with 42% Extroversion is slightly leaning towards being an introvert, but is close enough to being an extrovert to be classified that way as well. Below is a list of the other personality types so that you can determine which other possible categories you may fill if you scored near fifty percent for certain traits.

The other personality types:

The Emo Kid: Intuitive, Introverted, Gentle, Humble.

The Starving Artist: Intuitive, Introverted, Gentle, Arrogant.

The Bitch-Slap: Intuitive, Introverted, Brutal, Humble.

The Brute: Intuitive, Introverted, Brutal, Arrogant.

The Hippie: Intuitive, Extroverted, Gentle, Humble.

The Televangelist: Intuitive, Extroverted, Gentle, Arrogant.

The Schoolyard Bully: Intuitive, Extroverted, Brutal, Humble.

The Class Clown: Intuitive, Extroverted, Brutal, Arrogant.

The Robot: Rational, Introverted, Gentle, Humble.

The Haughty Intellectual: Rational, Introverted, Gentle, Arrogant.

The Spiteful Loner: Rational, Introverted, Brutal, Humble.

The Sociopath: Rational, Introverted, Brutal, Arrogant.

The Hand-Raiser: Rational, Extroverted, Gentle, Humble.

The Braggart: Rational, Extroverted, Gentle, Arrogant.

The Capitalist Pig: Rational, Extroverted, Brutal, Humble.

The Smartass: Rational, Extroverted, Brutal, Arrogant.

"Just for that you're not in the gang anymore."

Gay romantic comedies are few and far between. I'm looking forward to I Love You Philip Morris, starring, seriously, Jim Carrey and Ewan McGregor (!). It appears to be a quite oddballish take on the true events of a con artist who falls in love with his cellmate. I'm happy already, but oh, not so fast. According to wikipedia, they can't find somebody to distribute this movie cause hey-three-guesses, and they have to edit down content to market it. I swear, it's seeing movies when people are actually okay with being gay and happy and acting like it's no big deal that the public isn't ready to accept (though I may be pre-judging if this is one of those). The depressing stuff is acceptable, but if there are no tire irons people just lose their minds.

I also heard that they are going to start filming a sequel to the cult classic Repo Man soon. I was at first wary, but I am so not wary because it's the original director Alex Cox collaborating with DAVID MOTHERFUCKING LYNCH. Seriously, is this for real.

The Roger Ebert Film Fest showed The Fall this year but I didn't know about this until it was too late to get tickets, which makes me so, so very sad.

"They sound seriously concerned about tenderness."

I lol'd at Trent Reznor's April Fools Day gag.

Nobody pulled anything on me today, which is good considering I didn't realize until about an hour ago it was April 1.

Things I am excited about:

1) Friday, assuming I survive writing the longest damn paper I've ever had to write and was arguably not equipped to even start confidently researching until less than a week ago. This week is making me want to die and testing the limits of my self-control.

2) A drag party our house is having on Saturday.

3) Where the Wild Things Are directed by Spike motherfucking Jones.

4) Living in a single next year even though I'll be paying out of the ass for it.

"I'm not addicted to gambling, I'm addicted to sitting in a semi-circle."

I don't want this to be one of those bashing-a-film-that-everybody-thinks-is-great posts. Except. I keep hearing all these reactions to Curious Case of Benjamin Button like they were so moved by the message and all, and I saw it a couple days ago and feel completely unaffected by it. It was very nicely filmed and it managed to keep me pretty entertained without feeling the length of it, which is good, but I feel like it barely skimmed the surface of everything it could have said. The love story was unremarkable and was probably what detracted it from making any real statement with its premise. And for the first time ever I was actually annoyed with a performance from Cate Blanchett.

In other news. Eleven:

It is impossible for me to react to this right now. I just can' Come back again in a month and I might have an opinion about this. I'm just so not ready to say goodbye to David Tennant. I thought I was doing fine until this news.

2. Go there, and find the first five quotes that speak to you, for one reason or another, and post them in the comments here, and on your LJ, if you're so inclined.

Here's mine:

A man is not idle because he is absorbed in thought. There is a visible labor and there is an invisible labor.
-Victor Hugo

The big thieves hang the little ones.
-Czeck Proverb

Anyone who takes himself too seriously always runs the risk of looking ridiculous; anyone who can consistently laugh at himself does not.
-Vaclav Havel

Any American who is prepared to run for president should automatically, by definition, be disqualified from ever doing so.

You don't need to outdo the competition. It's expensive and defensive. Underdo your competition. We need more simplicity and clarity.

"trying to get with the plan, and the next five years trying to be with your friends again"

Apparently Mom is killing the x-mas spirit by acting like the world is a chore. Basically the added pain-in-the-ass of having a new dumbshit puppy is a little more than she can handle right now, but she can't take it out on the dog so she's being a martyr about everything else. The part that I don't get? She has yet to ask me to do anything, except mentioning at the beginning of break that Sara and I are to get the room cleaned soon (a mess that is only 25% my responsibility, but I kinda think she knows that), and it's not like that's something we haven't done because we expect her to do it. Whatever. As soon as she starts milling out the gooeytastic wreath crack-treats I'll be happy to scrub the fucking floor.
I wish Kitty were back. I need to start looking at summer jobs/get on a better sleeping schedule/hang out with Nerd/write.
I was pleasantly surprised to hear that MGA can no longer make their little snobby Bratz dolls anymore. This article explains why.
