It looks as if I'm off to Tucson, Arizona this December to see Sister and Family. So, besides Ally's parents, have we got any ILx-type people there? 'cos I'd like to meet NICE PEOPLE, perhaps even ENJOY New Years with these INTERESTING persons, some of whom may even be GIRLS. (You can tell my New Years haven't been very good of late?) Oh, and if you know of any good record stores, yeah, tell me that too. I suspect that ILx has a shortage of Arizonians and so feel free to turn this into "Cactus Milk: Yay or Nay" or "Man, I'm so Pissed Those Fuckers Won the World Series", or "How to Make Your Own Vibrator Using Only a Tumbleweed, Some Industrial-Strength Tape and a Giant Sand Album".

Oh, and Ally's parents live in Phoenix, not Tuscon, but I was referring to Greater Arizona, anyway.

Harumph. Well, I'm not going to let this all be wasted time and space, so I'm starting the very firstest "ThreadBlog". And why not? It's practical, no need to fuss with much HTML-ing or easy-to-read graphical interfaces or Shockwave Flashmedia Pro v.8.64- just easy-to- read, user-friendly black on white text delivered by yours truly.

Welcome to MitchBlog. It's just like those other blog things you read, except much much better. Sometimes it'll be considered and weighty, other times it'll be knee-slappingly hilarious and, every third Tuesday from March 14 - May 8, it's the unofficial "Save The Ecuadorian Seaslug" forum. But first and foremost, it's all about the Mitch.

Welcome aboard. Buckle up. It's gonna quite a ride.

I've never been remotely convinced by these thing, but a few days ago, while vehemently bored (not an unusual state to find myself in these last couple weeks), I was fiddling around with Aaliyah's "More Than a Woman" on cooledit pro, and if one reverses a segment of the chorus, it sounds vaguely like "don't let me go/ I don't wanna go/ I'm not ready".. hey, at 1am it feels like a revelation. What the hell are these Orange Choc Chip biscuits in my kitchen? I thought it said "Orange" because the box was orange, but -lo and behold- the cookies actually *taste* orange. What a terrible idea. I now have a vision of the frightened faces of ILE, wondering how far I'm actually gonna take this thing.

Became unduly angry at James. Feeling bad now. Wondering if this isn't all a big mistake. I think I'll listen to "Change" again tonight. My involvement with this album is reaching Josh-like proportions. Since its eagerly awaited arrival on import last week, I've listened to it at least 3 times a day, I think. "Emergency and I" only circled around the areas where this hits me.

Off to shower, then bed. All in all, a dull day. Best conversation I've had in a while:

Dubplatestyle: i'm hungry but i dont think there's anything around
MitchAnon: what about the sushi that fell behind the fridge 3 days ago?
Dubplatestyle: it's helping out with the rent now
MitchAnon: HAHA
Dubplatestyle: i'll probably end up getting some junk after i go the physician later.
MitchAnon: shouldn't you eat the junk and THEN go to the physician?
Dubplatestyle: hmmmm...perhaps. do they still leech people? (i havent been to the doctor in a long time, obv.)
MitchAnon: only if specifically requested.
MitchAnon: trust me, you'll want it.
Dubplatestyle: i think i wanna become an android.
MitchAnon: one that feels?
Dubplatestyle: no.
Dubplatestyle: just so i can eat nachoes every day and not get fat.
MitchAnon: why not just binge and purge? cheaper than a robo- ostomy
Dubplatestyle: i dislike vomit. trust me, i've weighed my options carefully. its the only way.
MitchAnon: alright. get robo-boobs while yr at it. you'll thank me later.
Dubplatestyle: hmmmm...only if i get a robo-gina.
MitchAnon: one of my dogs' name is gina. (pronounced "jeena" of course.) so robo-gina brings me a different mental picture.
Dubplatestyle: as opposed to chrome labia i suppose.
MitchAnon: my parrot's name is labia.
Dubplatestyle: i dont want to know what it says. or maybe i do.
MitchAnon: for details, look under "personals" in the paper.
Dubplatestyle: south african pervert parrot seeks south eastern pennsylvania slob for internation, interspecies romance. no smokers.
MitchAnon: or fatties.
MitchAnon: oh wait, "slob".
MitchAnon: no wierdos.
Dubplatestyle: well, i'll just have to find a different parrot on both counts then.
MitchAnon: there's plenty of parrots in the sea.
Dubplatestyle: wouldnt they all be dead tho?
MitchAnon: picky picky picky
Dubplatestyle: sorry, my momma taught me better than that
MitchAnon: certain lessons cannot be taught. they must be lived.
MitchAnon: COMING SOON:
Dubplatestyle: this summer, learn to live and love. all over again.
Dubplatestyle: (that new radicals song mst be playing in the background.)
MitchAnon: starring pauly shore as that little mirror thing that the parrot looks into
Dubplatestyle: i think we've got a winner on our hands.
MitchAnon: joan cusack won't commit.
MitchAnon: we can get the less-popular 3rd cusack sibling, shecky
Dubplatestyle: director: ron howard?
MitchAnon: no no, what about that freckly red-haired kid from 'happy days'?
MitchAnon: tom hanks?
Dubplatestyle: henry winkler?
MitchAnon: yeah yeah. him.
Dubplatestyle: eeeeeeeyyyyyy.
MitchAnon: yeah, we'll call him the "fronz" so as to avoid copyright issues
MitchAnon: and instead of eeeeeeeeeyyyy, he'll say 'ooooooooooooh'
Dubplatestyle: hmmmm...how would we feel about replacing him with tony danza and replacing the parrot with a robot. and setting it in a japanese noodle house?
MitchAnon: you are totally on my wavelength.
Dubplatestyle: all right, i'm gonna greenlight ths and assign a 500 million dollar budget.
MitchAnon: danza can play the washed-up former dot.com billionaire, now professional nudist hacky-sack player.
MitchAnon: get your people to talk to my people, we'll set something up next week at the oxygen bar. bring the sushi.
MitchAnon: man, that sushi is a *card*!

Is that the way to lure people into meeting you in the desert or anywhere else for that matter? When you promised us all 'quite a ride' we didn't think we were signing up to be abused. Poor James will probably have to attend a weekend workshop to work out his 'issues.' You'll be living the life of riley and he'll be sitting in a group therapy session, singing 'Wind Beneath My Wings'.

Shame on you, Mitch Lastnamewithheld.

Hey, I met my optometrist in Group Therapy! Besides, I'm already feeling a little down Nancy, you don't have to beat me into the ground. The Bette Midler bit was particularly crushing. Lunch?

10:14am Woke up "early" today (8:30 is early considering I often sleep till noon during holiday times), went to get a haircut. Just a trim, doesn't look very different. I received my first "MitchBlog/Meet Me in the Desert" fanmail today! Like I've always said, seeing positive responses to your work is gratifying, but it's my undying love of the written (or typed) word that fuels this little project. But I'd be lying if I didn't admit that upon receiving these marvelous digital missives, I didn't run around the room giggling like a schoolgirl hopped up on a RedBull-Ecstacy cocktail.

The first comes from a young lady who enthusiastically exclaims "HOT XXX WATCH ME SWALLOW YOUR CUM FOR ONLY $4 A MONTH!!". The rest of the mail was of a decidely ribald nature, and I am uncertain about reproducing it here. Nonetheless, am I the only one who hears the faint chimes of wedding bells just over the horizon?
The second is from a Scandanavian gentlemen who explained to me in broken english that because of our "wonderfuly freindness", he is sharing with me a secret scheme involving an ailing Great Uncle and an inheritance of astronomical proportions, and all I have to do is deposit $350 in his bank account by next Tuesday. Who says writing doesn't pay, huh?
Keep 'em coming, guys!

I'm pleased to see you're in a better mood today. The young lady sounds delightful. I think you should 'go for it.'

Nancy Drew, Thursday, 13 December 2001 01:00 (fifteen years ago) Permalink

Whenver "Ellen and Ben" begins, I feel as if I'm going to be underwhelmed, because it's a comedown (in terms of pace) from the one- two punch (I hate boxing metaphors) of the tense "Time Bomb" and the frantic "The Other Side". But I always end up charmed by Travis Morrison's oh-so-friendly demeanor and the quiet bit where Ellen and Ben (WARNING: SPOILER AHEAD!) break up still gives me goosebumps. Talking of being underwhelmed, that was my first reaction to Mos Def's "Black on Both Sides", which I purchased a couple weeks ago, but I soon realized that the mp3s I'd previewed ("Mathematics" and "Know That") were some of the most vital cuts of the album, and the rest of the record was a little more laid back, a summers-night urban daydream, more suitable for listening in the later hours of the day. "Rock 'n Roll" is worrisome- not because of the Elvis and Stones- bashing, but (like Ethan mentioned in the classic-or-dud thread), that embarrasing fake punk thing Mos sticks on at the end. The guitars are even pushed down kinda low in the mix, so it doesn't sound very "punky". Ideologically, it doesn't make much sense, either: Mos is trying to make the case that Nina Simone is Rock 'n Rock, but she didn't tack on bits that sound like Superchunk playing underwater in her songs, right? I think a subtler way of achieving the form=content thing would have been to add some dirty funk guitars around the corners of the track. And there's some dubious politicking on "Mr. Nigga", especially the insistance that OJ came out the victim (!) of race and wealth prejudice. And the Michael Jackson - Woody Allen parallels are icky, too. Man, a lotta folks don't like Woody's later works, but at least he hasn't made his "You Rock My World Yet". Still, plenty of great stuff on the album to recommend: the aformentioned "Mathematics" and "Know That", "Hip Hop", "New World Water", "Got" and "Ms. Fatbooty" among them. I love music.

Thanks for the encouragement, Nancy. Yeah, I'm feeling good today. Bouncy, even. Well, OK, not "bouncy". I'm alright.

Corrrection: above should read "Rock 'n Rolle" not "Rock 'n Rok". Also, invererted commas in the wrong place in "Your Rock My Word", it should not include the word "yeti". Apologys.

At about 9:30 I remember that I actually wanted to go out tonight. Instead of making the appropriate calls, I do nothing. Against my better judgement, I really like this Ben Folds song. It's called "Not The Same". I saw him perform it on the Conan O'Brien show. He banged on his piano with noticeable passion. Punk. Huge, almost song- destroying lyrical misstep: when Folds momentarily switches the focus from the individual (a stoner turned bible-junkie) to (what I assume is) a generic, cartoonish sketch of Jehova's Witnesses ("they come knocking at your door with this look in their eyes") he risks turning what sounds like something genuinely *heartfelt* into a Weird Al- esque novelty song. Luckily, the even *huger* chorus pretty much makes up for it. I like to pretend that: 1) it's about a girl 2) Billy Joel never existed.

Nothing happened today. Nothing. Oh, I bought some shoes. They're blue, I already have blue shoes, but those are really kinda worn down, but nevertheless maybe I should've gone for the black cause it goes with more things, y'know. But the blue ones still looked nicer. So, yeah, I bought shoes.

Swimming! I went swimming! Well, almost, I just sorta waded around the pool, I don't think I even did a lap.

So how come when I first heard "Harder Better Faster Stronger" on TV, I thought "so *this* is the fantastic stuff off the much-loved Discovery!" but when I downloaded the mp3, I listened once and never wanted to hear it again? The mind works in mysterious ways. Now downloading: "One More Time".

Just thought about last night's Futurama again. It was *poignant*.

i didn't read all the posts on here. i have lived in tucson for about a year and a half, i was in phoenix for 3 years. tucson is a much better place than phoenix...it's not a sprawling strip mall with 115┬░ summers, you can walk around and actually get somewhere (sort of depending on where you are in tucson), the restaurants are better, as is the coffee and, lastly, PDQ RECORDS IS A WAREHOUSE FULL OF WAX!!!
