rolling stones vs. led zeppelin?

i think led zeppelin is way better than the rolling stones. but people seem to say that the rolling stones are like the greatest rock band in history. i think that the who are also better than the stones.

tale of the connies

once upon a time, i lived in washington d.c. when i moved out, my mother and father came to help me move out.

my mother was in my room sweeping up a storm and i thought my room was pretty clean. as i walked into the room, i noticed something she swept from under the bed, an unopened condom. she let out a sigh/shriek and we didnt discuss it and then we moved on.

i went to my roommate’s room and giggled for a good bit, while she laughed at me. then, i went back into my room, just to see my mom sweep out another 2 wrappers, but these were open and hilarious. my mom again didn’t comment or converse about them, she just nodded angrily and i scurried to laugh again.

i love being awkward.

the chicky plug

chicky is a wonderful band in the city of brotherly love. they play post-punk-disco-funk for the adults and the children. their history can be found here. i am their interim manager and doing all that i can to get them to take over philly, which isn’t much.

check out their myspace which will quickly rise the charts as they record and release.

as they record, i will also put the mp3s here for easy access. enjoy.

i don’t think the phillies bullpen exists

the phillies bullpen is constantly making me sad. with myers and gordon out, we are left with such geniuses as yoel hernandez (5.02), brian sanches (3.38), clay condrey (8.44). rosario (6.64), fabio castro (12.27), and matt smith (11.25) have all been removed from the mix for the reasons of injury and demotions, respectively. but these guys are complete jokes.

i love zagurski, though. he is a cutie with a capital ‘C’.

it sucks for moyer as his arm has to fall off or arthritis has to set in very soon.

class divide: facebook v. myspace

i read a fun article about the class divide of facebook and myspace.

The goodie two shoes, jocks, athletes, or other “good” kids are now going to Facebook. These kids tend to come from families who emphasize education and going to college. They are part of what we’d call hegemonic society. They are primarily white, but not exclusively. They are in honors classes, looking forward to the prom, and live in a world dictated by after school activities.

MySpace is still home for Latino/Hispanic teens, immigrant teens, “burnouts,” “alternative kids,” “art fags,” punks, emos, goths, gangstas, queer kids, and other kids who didn’t play into the dominant high school popularity paradigm. These are kids whose parents didn’t go to college, who are expected to get a job when they finish high school. These are the teens who plan to go into the military immediately after schools. Teens who are really into music or in a band are also on MySpace. MySpace has most of the kids who are socially ostracized at school because they are geeks, freaks, or queers.

wii workout

so i know this has been done by others, but, i’m doin it too.

starting last week, i began my wii workout, which is mostly wii sports boxing for about an hour and a half. i use my mii along with a friend’s that is designated as left-handed to switch between dominant hands.
