hi arbys

just malorted a little bit in my mouth (jjjusten), Thursday, 9 June 2011 22:40 (eight years ago) link

This is AWESOME and PERFECT, lollll

Welcome to your new life, arbys. We'll see you through.

Sara R-C, Thursday, 9 June 2011 22:44 (eight years ago) link

notable things about HSTNGS:

1) The high school looks like a rich community college; it's kind of insane.
2) Many of the people who live there are awesome, but many of the people who live there are terrifying townies. Tread carefully.
3) Avoid teenagers like the plague. They are all insane with boredom and are likely to do lethal things for no good fucking reason.
4) Invest in cable; after the first few times you walk through the parks, you will have exhausted much of what the town has to offer.
5) People will invariably mention the Le Duc Mansion as if it was a big deal. It isn't.
6) If Spiral Pizza still exists, order from them at least once and ponder on the fact that this local business put a Little Caesar's out of business.
7) Life revolves around the high school and the newspaper.
8) The easiest way to meet people is to become churchy. There are something like 20 churches in town.

wrt #8 The problem with that is that you might meet the craziest town people that way! You might be safe if you stick with the Episcopalians and Presbyterians. (I might be biased bc some of my oldest friends go to those churches)

Sara R-C, Friday, 10 June 2011 15:20 (eight years ago) link

to be honest, living in hstngs as an adult is prob not all that bad, its just a shit place to be when you cant drive

TRUTH NUKE

low-rent black gangster nicknamed Bootsy (DJP), Friday, 10 June 2011 20:25 (eight years ago) link

Any small town is a shit place to be when you can't drive.

got a whole lotta gloves (snoball), Friday, 10 June 2011 20:32 (eight years ago) link

This may well be true but a lot of really odd, disturbing shit has happened in HSTNGS, much of which you can find by digging through the archives of this board.

Now, I haven't lived there in 20 years so maybe it isn't still like Twin Peaks set in Stephen King's Maine, but seeing as recently as 6 years ago a kid talked his friends into helping him shoot his parents in the face so he could collect their life insurance...

low-rent black gangster nicknamed Bootsy (DJP), Friday, 10 June 2011 21:06 (eight years ago) link

I visit frequently bc my family is still there. It's still boring as hell, and I think that lulls you into not noticing the Twin Peaks set in Maine vibe. But then crazy nonsense like what you mentioned there happens and it's just like... okay, is it just me, or is there a theme here? And the answer I always come back to is yes.

In retrospect, I think I was super lucky in my choice of friends. And all of that hinged on the random decision one day to join Drama Club.

When weird stuff happens in Hastings, I never even feel surprised anymore.

Sara R-C, Friday, 10 June 2011 21:50 (eight years ago) link

BUT the key is to be aware of the possibility of CRAZY. If you're alert and avoid teenagers, you're probably good.

Also forgot to mention my brother's liquor store, H0us3 of W1n3s. (Dad now running the Red Wing stores.)

Sara R-C, Friday, 10 June 2011 21:52 (eight years ago) link

finally got someone to call back to set up a viewing! yeesh. seeing the place tmr after we're off work, some loft above a big masonic building downtown; hopefully i only need that sock full of quarters for laundry. we looked around for places in vermillion and such, too, and it looks pretty solid that we'll wind up in hstngs.

to be honest, living in hstngs as an adult is prob not all that bad, its just a shit place to be when you cant drive

this will actually be the first place i live in which i own a car.

I remember vividly how going to Burnsville seemed like a big deal when I was in high school. (This may be because my mother was terrified of driving anywhere other than Burnsville...)

Sara R-C, Wednesday, 22 June 2011 03:32 (eight years ago) link

Going to Burnsville was a big deal because they had a Shinders!

We never went there, though! It was strictly B. Dalton. (remember B. Dalton?)

B. Dalton vs Waldenbooks

(I always preferred B. Dalton, btw)

Sara R-C, Wednesday, 22 June 2011 15:25 (eight years ago) link

I think everyone who made sense preferred B. Dalton

yeah i have no real reason to dislike waldenbooks but to this day i still do. i mean inactively i guess, but

lemon kerrang! (jjjusten), Wednesday, 22 June 2011 15:44 (eight years ago) link

i think there was still one of those left in the roseville mall last i checked actually. where time stops.

lemon kerrang! (jjjusten), Wednesday, 22 June 2011 15:45 (eight years ago) link

also going to burnsville was a big deal because NORTHERN LIGHTS man shit

lemon kerrang! (jjjusten), Wednesday, 22 June 2011 15:45 (eight years ago) link

weren't Northern Lights and Shinder's in the same strip mall?

that was the best strip mall in America IMO

chupacabra - a delicious burrito (DJP), Wednesday, 22 June 2011 15:48 (eight years ago) link

yes they were, and yes it was

lemon kerrang! (jjjusten), Wednesday, 22 June 2011 18:14 (eight years ago) link

google is claiming that Shinder's still exists, is it lying?

chupacabra - a delicious burrito (DJP), Wednesday, 22 June 2011 18:37 (eight years ago) link

sadly yes

lemon kerrang! (jjjusten), Wednesday, 22 June 2011 18:52 (eight years ago) link

according to some insidey info basically dude inherits business, loves whores and drugs, buries the whole empire in like less than a year

lemon kerrang! (jjjusten), Wednesday, 22 June 2011 18:53 (eight years ago) link

wtf

I guess it's a good thing I moved away, I wouldn't want revenue from my Doctor Who purchases paying for someone else's whores and drugs

chupacabra - a delicious burrito (DJP), Wednesday, 22 June 2011 18:54 (eight years ago) link

I mean, if that was drugs and whores money, I would have spent it on drugs and whores

chupacabra - a delicious burrito (DJP), Wednesday, 22 June 2011 18:55 (eight years ago) link

oh man I'm missing you guys right now... <3 <3 <3

And also that Northern Lights!

Sara R-C, Wednesday, 22 June 2011 19:18 (eight years ago) link

pff drove to hstngs just to go "oh the ad didn't say no pets". which is a bummer, i kinda liked the place. and if we wanted to roll with the twin peaks in derry, ME vibe all we really needed were some red drapes:

picked up a local paper looks like they caught up with the garage door bandit over there in cottage grove. copper thieves hitting all the light poles tsk tsk tsk

arby's, Thursday, 23 June 2011 00:55 (eight years ago) link

growing up in w1nd0m it was all about driving to the river hills mall in 'kato cuz there was an arcade, or you'd drive to w0rthington cuz they had a movie theater with more than one screen and they showed their movies when they actually were released rather than only getting kids movies or the biggest possible blockbusters 6 months after the fact. i think hstngs was just big enough that weird stuff happened whereas w1nd0m i think there was one incident where some kids on the football team chased some cheerleaders or something with hockey sticks and that was some sorta big deal. beyond that it was like who got who pregnant and just...so sleepy.

arby's, Thursday, 23 June 2011 01:43 (eight years ago) link

omg how did i miss the inception of this thread

all the pretty HOOSes (gbx), Thursday, 23 June 2011 01:46 (eight years ago) link

i think the last time i actually "set foot" (like literally, vs driving through) in HSTNGS was last autumn, when some buds of mine and i went for a ride down to red wing and back. i kept pointing out boring stuff like denny's and emily's bakery and being half-misty half-scornful and they were just like "sure man whatever" and then i was like "right why on earth would you give a shit"

we went to the dairy store and got milkshakes. they were like $1.25 and i was ~incensed~

all the pretty HOOSes (gbx), Thursday, 23 June 2011 01:50 (eight years ago) link

wait so you have hstngs connections too? i think i've missed this.

arby's, Thursday, 23 June 2011 01:51 (eight years ago) link

btw there is something very satisfying/weird about how ilx is crawling w/HSTNGS ppl to an extent that involves someone actually moving there. that is some circle of life shit, right there

xp yeah!

all the pretty HOOSes (gbx), Thursday, 23 June 2011 01:51 (eight years ago) link

4-12th grade

all the pretty HOOSes (gbx), Thursday, 23 June 2011 01:52 (eight years ago) link

hstngs was just big enough that weird stuff happened

i want this to be true, but i've met loads of ppl from other equally-sized towns in the midwest and i still sorta think that hstngs occupies some liminal borderland of boring weirdness

all the pretty HOOSes (gbx), Thursday, 23 June 2011 01:55 (eight years ago) link

xposts yeah it's weird to me too. when kg and i were looking for places to live for back-2-school time and she was like "i think hstngs looks like our best option" well i don't need to tell you what went through my mind

more xposts wow i had you pegged as from duluth or something idk how that lodged itself in my brain.

arby's, Thursday, 23 June 2011 01:55 (eight years ago) link

not doing a great job of selling you on it, sorry

anyway, i blame the bridge. http://teslastaging.com/forums/images/smilies/Gestures/userArmsCrossed.gif otherwise we'd be stillwater. beautiful, sane, touristed stillwater. fuck you stillwater why won't you return my phone calls!!!!!!! you're worse than that stuck-up red wing!!!!!!

all the pretty HOOSes (gbx), Thursday, 23 June 2011 01:57 (eight years ago) link

i've probably been to duluth maybe three times. but i guess i talk a lot of trash about outdoorsy stuff that it makes sense

tbf, i think that when i and the rest of the ilx hstngs posse lived there (which was a...span) it was more of a "small-town" whereas now i think it's graduated to "exurb" status? i went to the new high school when i was in college and was like 'holy shit.' they learn in pods and there's bridges over the cafeteria/"social area" and the auditorium is amazing and i got spurned at lockers in tilefaced hallways (is this true? about the tile, i mean? i remember tile being everywhere) and farm boys fighting all the time

all the pretty HOOSes (gbx), Thursday, 23 June 2011 02:02 (eight years ago) link

i also remember chris h3rman (of the clan h3rman) saying no, thanks, to the police officer that offered him a sledgehammer when it came time to bust the window of a car at a cop fundraiser in the parking lot and just punching it out with his fist. i remember thinking "i'm glad he's ok with me," because i was a nerd that had an hour and a half bus ride with bunch of fucking nutcases and he was my neighbor

sorry guys i was wayyy busy preparing for the move all weekend--we move on sunday! we lined up an apartment downtown by the river, real high ceilings, big kitchen, cleanest one we looked at. really afraid our bed won't fit up the stairs of that old building tho. what else. found out my work has a hstngs location and transferred so my worrying of unemployment perils were satisfyingly short lived. i'm getting really pumped about all this tbh.

and oh yeah: a few days after we moved in i was unloading a card table and chairs from my trunk. as i'm going around to open the trunk an old dude (looking v much like a sloppier dr. jakoby fyi) said hi as he was passing, only he didn't pass, and stopped dead and just stared a while. it took me forever to get the table/chairs out cuz i had a painting in one arm (idk why i didn't put it down), and i'm mucking with them for forever and he goes "well, have a good afternoon!", and i'm like "yeah you too!", but he just keeps standing there, staring at me. didn't go away until after i finally unloaded and closed the trunk and locked the car doors. kinda innocuous i guess but somehow really unsettling at the moment.

so, is there a curse here you guys aren't telling me about? we've had a small string of bad luck* punctuated by sort of a call-is-coming-from-inside-your-house moment last night. a few days after moving in KG's car has a $600 break down. no sooner than it's fixed, my car breaks down, so i've been biking to work all this week. (and, if we don't get it fixed/figure out reliable transportation, commuting to school=no go). my car's capacity to accelerate cuts in and out at its whim, which last night meant a pretty harrowing drive to the autofixit place**. then, we're walking home down sibley and KG receives a text, from herself, of an icon of a bicycle. yeah good joke, universe!!! this town is indeed strange and mysterious. also kind of a dick.

*(in addition to the car stuff, there has all the while been the difficulty of tracking down where my paycheck's been bumbled off to while my bank account's been sitting in the negative, but that's another story...)

bruce actual springsteen (schlump), Thursday, 11 August 2011 17:05 (eight years ago) link

yeah what's frustrating is that i didn't quit, just transferred locations, so it should have just been sent to my current location. but instead showed up at the old location, ten was sent to my prior address, an action that was sat on for a time...ultimately i should have just filled out the direct deposit paperwork a long long time ago and avoided all of this so

it was only a $30 charge for one overdraft and i guess i'm just saying fuckit cuz i got other things to worry about (i'm now back in the positive btw after getting my deposit back in full from the last place).

been rummaging through craigslist for cars but ultimately waiting to see what the auto place says about the state of my current car before i go whole hog in search for a new one. will prob nab a paper from the gas station next to work today though, good idea.

arby's, Sunday, 21 August 2011 01:26 (eight years ago) link

I strongly recommend not going down that road in winter, at least not when jjj is driving

also Sara you know many ppl who lived on RT, like say ME

Well, yes, of course I love Ravenna Trail because you lived on it, too, deX, but you and I aren't twins! That's you and Scurvy, remember? ;)

Sara R-C, Sunday, 21 August 2011 23:03 (eight years ago) link

Also, yes, if John is driving, stay off Ravenna, in fact, just do yourself a favor and offer to drive yourself.

Although if memory serves, John also had a great habit of inadvertently shifting my car into neutral while I was driving all the time.

(I *think* that was inadvertent...)

got really sick night before 1st day of class. woke up at 3:00 that morning. and this morning. still sick. long days :[

school is really fun in spite of it all though.

Sick? What's wrong?! Hope you are getting better...

Sara R-C, Tuesday, 23 August 2011 22:59 (eight years ago) link

ty! it's just a nose/throat/achy thing. (+headaches.) but i'm a really finicky sleeper so the laying awake and not breathing all night is really giving the fatigue bit of my symptoms some added weight. as well as exacerbating the rest of them i'm sure. blah blah blah i'm a stupid weak baby

arby's, Tuesday, 23 August 2011 23:15 (eight years ago) link

No, that totally sucks, and yes, if you can't get any rest, that does make it worse. :(

dougie instructor (jjjusten), Thursday, 25 August 2011 15:04 (eight years ago) link

oh by the way sara i think theres something wrong with your timestamp because according to that you got up 4.5 hours earlier than me, which would be ridiculous

dougie instructor (jjjusten), Thursday, 25 August 2011 15:17 (eight years ago) link

i mean im barely holding it together getting up just before 10 am, i cant imagine

dougie instructor (jjjusten), Thursday, 25 August 2011 15:18 (eight years ago) link

okay you

btw gonna see a concert version of Porgy and Bess out at Tanglewood tomorrow with nice wine and a picnic dinner prepared by a friend who happens to be a professional chef

Rob Based and DJ EZ God (DJP), Thursday, 25 August 2011 15:23 (eight years ago) link

just nice wine?

disappointing.

dougie instructor (jjjusten), Thursday, 25 August 2011 15:25 (eight years ago) link

well we have to drive

also I think it might be a no hard liquor zone, I certainly have never seen anyone with anything other than beer or wine, and mostly wine because lol classical music ppl

would be pretty dope to slam back martinis to "My Man's Gone Now" tho (which btw is EASILY the best soprano aria from the opera, "Summertime" is mad overrated)

Rob Based and DJ EZ God (DJP), Thursday, 25 August 2011 15:27 (eight years ago) link

i was thinking that you should be having more of a jet-setting fine wine experience, not this adequate wine nonsense

dougie instructor (jjjusten), Thursday, 25 August 2011 15:30 (eight years ago) link

ah see, if we get nice wine we can get like 6 bottles

if we get jet-setting fine wine, we can get 1 bottle

surely you can see where this is going

(btw is a bottle per person overdoing it if two of them have to drive)

Rob Based and DJ EZ God (DJP), Thursday, 25 August 2011 15:34 (eight years ago) link

only if you are one of the two

dougie instructor (jjjusten), Thursday, 25 August 2011 15:38 (eight years ago) link

if you are not then you can hope cooler heads prevail in which case u get 1.5 bottles of wine

dougie instructor (jjjusten), Thursday, 25 August 2011 15:38 (eight years ago) link

here's my current logic:

I have no idea what food is being prepared so I need to get a mix of reds and whites

there are 4 guaranteed ppl, plus 1 floater and 2 potentials (a friend is going with a couple who is planning their own picnic; friend will definitely join us and couple might)

so I am planning on 3 reds, 3 whites with the expectation that 2 will be unopened

also thinking pinot noir, cab sauv and shiraz vs sauv blanc, viognier, gewuertztraminer

Rob Based and DJ EZ God (DJP), Thursday, 25 August 2011 15:44 (eight years ago) link

cant help you too much because i have traded in my potential wine skills to hone my fancy beer skills long ago

dougie instructor (jjjusten), Thursday, 25 August 2011 15:50 (eight years ago) link

I think that sounds fine, except that usually gewuertztraminer (or however the hell you spell it) is almost always so sweet that it makes me want to hurl. So pick something else.

John, I know you were making fun of my getting up so freaking early, and if I wasn't so freaking exhausted, I would come over there and kill you. As it is, it's just going to have to wait.

Sara R-C, Thursday, 25 August 2011 22:34 (eight years ago) link

maybe you wouldnt be so tired if you slept in a little more

dougie instructor (jjjusten), Thursday, 25 August 2011 22:52 (eight years ago) link

You know, the worst part is that I woke up at 3:30 and couldn't get back to sleep! UGH

Sara R-C, Thursday, 25 August 2011 23:03 (eight years ago) link

No time for an Advil PM by then, you're just screwed.

Sara R-C, Thursday, 25 August 2011 23:03 (eight years ago) link

hey i was up at 3:30 too! but i did it the right way by staying up until then having loads of fun

dougie instructor (jjjusten), Thursday, 25 August 2011 23:12 (eight years ago) link

Sara R-C, Sunday, 28 August 2011 01:53 (eight years ago) link

been worried a little about my cat, too. her eating habits have been pretty up and down and she's been sleeping more, but i think maybe she's still figuring out the new environment, and i'm over-thinking stuff as usual. anyway, sorry bout your cat. it's so easy sometimes to be callous or brusk, "it's just the damn cat, she'll be fine" or etc, but as soon as somethings wrong, they've run away, you realize just how much you care about the little weirdos.

anyway, my first week of school was really fun and i'm not sick anymore, so wahoo!

if you are on a PC and Windows crashes, your entire screen goes blue and lots of text about page faults and memory dumps get pops up, leaving you no choice but to reboot and hope your hard drive hasn't been corrupted

the tax avocado (DJP), Wednesday, 5 October 2011 20:54 (eight years ago) link

The one with the mustache and the chef’s outfit is Guido, the Italian sausage. Frankie Furter, the hot dog, wears a baseball uniform. Cinco the chorizo dons a sombrero.

ha, we went to a concert of one of the groups I sang in as an undergrad this past Friday and came to the shocking, startling realization that there were kids on the stage younger than J's and my relationship

later we spent some time drinking beer with the president of the group, who would have been about 3 when J and I started dating

I keep running into resident MDs and realizing they are DOCTORS and that they were born after Reagan was out of office. It's terrifying.

(Also why do they let men who don't look like they need to shave yet become MDs? It is JUST WRONG!!!)

oh nothing much tbh, mostly a lot of feeling like we were in that scene in a bad movie where the out of towners step into the local joint and all the patrons eye them with mild suspicion. the b3irstub3 was 100% empty except for the bartender and my friend bought him shots. the night began with "wahoo we're drunk let's hit the town" and then very quickly settled into mild disappointment.

arby's, Tuesday, 1 November 2011 01:21 (eight years ago) link

we just watched "The Mist"

he carried yellow flowers (DJP), Tuesday, 1 November 2011 03:37 (eight years ago) link

bumblebee zombie = kind of brilliant sounding; bierstube = oh my, so HSTNGS (although not always in a bad way!)

deX- I am terrified to see that movie. How scary is it? Every time I re-read that story my hands sweat. And I know exactly what is going to happen.

Sara R-C, Tuesday, 1 November 2011 21:38 (eight years ago) link

We decided to watch the original 1958 version of _The Blob_, which terrified me as a child (and which I was still having nightmares about when I was in 11th grade... no joke). Guess what? It's about the least scary movie ever.

Well except the fact that Steve McQueen was supposed to be a teenage heartthrob despite the fact that he looks about 45 years old in the film.

Sara R-C, Tuesday, 1 November 2011 21:39 (eight years ago) link

There are some strong squirm moments in the middle but it's surprisingly not as gory as I expected it to be (tho there is still gore, don't get me wrong).

The ending is brutal tho

he carried yellow flowers (DJP), Tuesday, 1 November 2011 21:40 (eight years ago) link

That story hits my fear buttons so damn hard - giant bugs/dinosaurs/spiders, things eating people alive, and a child in danger. It's scientifically designed to freak me the hell out.

Sara R-C, Tuesday, 1 November 2011 21:43 (eight years ago) link

Not sure I'm ever going to be able to watch it. Which is sort of sad, because it's one of my favorite SK stories!

Sara R-C, Tuesday, 1 November 2011 21:43 (eight years ago) link

ok am i now bummed that le blob is not on instant. tbh empty b3irstub3 was probably the best bar of the night bcz 1)drunkest, and 2)we talked to the bartender abt m4nk4to for a time. actually the best part was 3) KG checking her phone to see nine missed calls from her sister who had just rolled into town from chicago. she felt pretty bad, i lolled.

arby's, Tuesday, 1 November 2011 22:03 (eight years ago) link

If you have Amazon Prime you can watch _The Blob_ on instant there for free. It's not good, but it is a classic in its way... and it offers a lot of unintended lolz. (There's a line about wasting "my 80 cents" to see a movie, for instance...).

Sounds like you had fun of a sort in HSTNGS anyway...???

Sara R-C, Tuesday, 1 November 2011 22:19 (eight years ago) link

oh, yeah. we were pretty happy just to have ppl visiting, really. we downed a few bottles of wine before heading out so some uncomfortable stares from ppl who appeared to be having zero fun didn't impact our momentum too badly. just an oddly listless friday night crowd.

arby's, Tuesday, 1 November 2011 22:34 (eight years ago) link

Ah, HSTNGS... zero fun for all! Okay, for many. Glad you had some yourselves anyway. :)

We put our new land line phone on speaker so we could sing happy birthday to J's grandmother. We then couldn't figure out how to take it off of speaker, which led me to overhear a mammogram conversation where J's g complained about how much she hates them because of her dense tit flesh.

A group of folks went out to western MA yesterday for a really odd, poignant event; the father of a friend of ours from college has terminal cancer and has requested a bunch of music be sung at his impending memorial, so we went out to his house to rehearse it while he and his family watched. It was really touching and kind of a "makes you think" moment; here is a guy staring at the end of his life and he's decided to go out in a certain way, and we got to perform the music he wants sung at his service for him before he actually died. I'm still kind of emotional about it.

you guys, the new Schoolboy Q mixtape is on Spotify now

http://open.spotify.com/album/2XA9ImMQL9h3nFUMkHLL38

This dude was a late 2011 revelation to me, between him and Kendrick Lamar it gives me faith that there are still ppl out there in hip-hop who aren't wholesale Drake-esque embarrassments and that makes me super super happy

WHY DO YOU HATE RAINBOWS? (Austerity Ponies), Friday, 27 January 2012 16:56 (eight years ago) link

Here's some more to listen to"

http://open.spotify.com/user/djperry1973/playlist/2c5J6cInjUXV647UzhXZbS

My favorite albums of 2011. A quick rundown:

Lamb - 5
Old school trip-n-bass comes roaring back like a subdued Portishead, remaining as wonderful as they did in their heyday.
Standouts: "Butterfly Effect", "Build A Fire", "She Walks"

PJ Harvey - Let England Shake
Fragile, emotional renderings of the impact of WWII on England, sung in a revelatory manner more reminiscent of Kate Bush than "Sheela-Na-Gig".
Standouts: "The Words That Maketh Murder", "On Battleship Hill"

The Mountain Goats - All Eternals Deck
Duh.
Standouts: "Damn These Vampires", "Age Of Kings", "High Hawk Season" (duh*2)

Florence + The Machine - Ceremonials
This fucking woman ruined what is probably the best goth-pop album released this year by releasing a fucking racist video. It's super infuriating because this album is great. Never buy it.
Standouts: "What The Water Gave Me", "Remain Nameless", "No Light, No Light" <-- this is the racist video

Austra - Feel It Break
Buy this instead of Florence. It's basically the same voice over moody electronics and without the racist videos.
Standouts: "Beat and the Pulse", "Hate Crime" (irony!)

Beyonce - 4
Despite being largely about how Beyonce can't exist without a man, this is an astonishing sounding album. B has never sounded better and a bunch of the songs are super bonkers. People will tell you the bonus tracks are the real stars; these people are high.
Standouts: "End of Time", "I Care", "I Miss You", "Countdown"

Lone - Echolocations EP
omg it's 1993 again and I'm raaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaving
Standouts: "Explorers", "Rapid Racer"

M83 - Hurry up, We're Dreaming
Yes it's an extended John Hughes soundtrack/Tears for Fears meets Simple Minds pastiche; this is precisely what makes it so fucking awesome.
Standouts: "Midnight City", "OK Pal", "Claudia Lewis"

Planningtorock - W
Specifically for those times when you think "you know what, Fever Ray is too commercial for me"
Standouts: "Doorway", "I Am Your Man", "The Breaks"

Del The Funky Homosapien - Golden Era
Yes I like old dudes who were releasing albums when we were in college, sue me
Standouts: "Calculate", "Double Barrel"

Kanye & Jay-Z - Watch The Throne
At some point, this went from being a pleasant diversion to the strongest affirmation of black achievement I listened to all year. Kanye is still iffy but Jay sounds better than he has in YEARS.
Standouts: "No Church In The Wild", "Ni**as In Paris", "Murder To Excellence", "Who Gon Stop Me"

When Saints Go Machine - Konkylie
Imagine if Antony and the Johnsons weren't fucking horrible and massively irritating and you've got this. Similar voice, VASTLY more interesting songs.
Standouts: "Konkylie", "Church and Law", "The Same Scissors", "Adds End"

Emika - Emika
More moody female-fronted synth-pop. Very intense at times.
Standouts: "Professional Loving", "Pretend"

Kate Wax - Dust Collision
Mostly for one song, but oh my god that song!
Standout: "Human Twin"

Schoolboy Q - Setbacks
I had no idea that mixtape blog rappers were doing anything that wasn't utter bullshit before stumbling across this. Apparently their whole collective (Black Hippy) is amazing.
Standouts: "Figg Get Da Money", "Light Years Ahead", "Fantasy"

Kendrick Lamar - Section.80
Another Black Hippy dude I discovered late last year. Holy shit. Keep an eye on this dude, he is NEXT LEVEL.
Standouts: "A.D.H.D.", "Tammy's Song (Her Evils)", "Keisha's Song (Her Pain)", "Rigamortus"

Shabazz Palaces - Black Up
Doodlebug from Digable Planets resurfaces as a paranoid nightmare. Fucking unbelievable; you will never hear "Cool Like That" the same way again.
Standouts: "free press and curl", "An echo from the hosts that profess infinitum", "yeah you"

Rihanna - Talk That Talk
I don't know if Rihanna has ever sounded as comfortable with ridiculously dirty songs as she does here. Also, the candy pop songs are extra sparkly. Also, one song is built off of the best track on the XX album.
Standouts: "We Found Love", "Cockiness (Love It)", "Birthday Cake", "Drunk On Love"

Invisible Conga People - Invisible Conga People EP
I just discovered this and it's fucking beautiful. Not gonna bother listing standouts because it's two songs and two remixes but it's AMAZING.

Stop being so dedicated to outpacing me in keeping up with new music, people.

Apparently I am moving in the opposite direction, having discovered The Supremes "I Hear a Symphony" album on Spotify. One of the first records I remember, and certainly my introduction to music that was neither country or Christmas songs.

So I have a story I need to share

When we turned our rental gear in, we were telling with this older dude who had been helping us out over the couple of days we were on the mountain. He was awesome right up until we were leaving. At that point, he walked up to me, tapped me on the shoulder and said "You were an excellent token out there in the mountain!"

One of our friends, who can't hear shot, thought he said "coach" in reference to me helping J on the slopes and said "Yes he is!" in response.

thuggish ruggish Brahms (DJP), Wednesday, 14 March 2012 01:50 (seven years ago) link

ahahaha. The enthusiasm must have been perplexing

(he did what!) (Austerity Ponies), Wednesday, 14 March 2012 12:56 (seven years ago) link

Large chunks of the weekend felt like we were in a weird comedy movie. After dinner on Friday night, we went upstairs to the bar where they were doing karaoke; when we walked in, they were playing hair metal and super honkey-tonk country music. Within fifteen minutes of us walking in, they started playing Wiz Kalifa and Kanye/Jay-Z.

thuggish ruggish Brahms (DJP), Wednesday, 14 March 2012 15:16 (seven years ago) link

smdh. it's like you walked into an 80's comedy.

(he did what!) (Austerity Ponies), Wednesday, 14 March 2012 15:40 (seven years ago) link

the best part was we were describing this phenomenon to our friend who can't hear anything as it was happening and watching her first go, "wow, that's never happened to me!" (she is white) and then watching her go "oh hey, that's happening NOW"

other pieces of hilarity that night:

- Some dude got up to sing some country rock song called "Black Friday". When the DJ announced "Okay, it's time for 'Black Friday'!" J (who hadn't been paying attention) turned around and yelled "Why it gotta be black???!?!?" Cue terrified locals.

- The other dude in our party entered (and won) a beer pong tournament. Along the way, he played a guy missing his top 4 front teeth who was wearing a hat with a Confederate flag on it. Our friend, who is from VA, asked dude where he was from and dude said "Connecticut." Our friend was all "um, aren't you a little too northern for that hat?"

thuggish ruggish Brahms (DJP), Wednesday, 14 March 2012 16:10 (seven years ago) link

each missing tooth moves you 5 degrees of latitude to the south iirc

Thu'um gang (jjjusten), Wednesday, 14 March 2012 16:19 (seven years ago) link

dude was super-friendly, too

It was scarily like being in HSTNGS

thuggish ruggish Brahms (DJP), Wednesday, 14 March 2012 16:20 (seven years ago) link

re beer pong with the toothless dude: ski vacations are different than I imagine them to be

(he did what!) (Austerity Ponies), Wednesday, 14 March 2012 16:34 (seven years ago) link

the place we went didn't have night skiing, so every day by 5:00 we ended up looking for something to do before dinner

that thing usually ended up being "drink", although on Saturday it was "go to the outdoor hot tub"

thuggish ruggish Brahms (DJP), Wednesday, 14 March 2012 16:38 (seven years ago) link

i am just assuming that "and drink" is appended there

Thu'um gang (jjjusten), Wednesday, 14 March 2012 16:39 (seven years ago) link

also AP i was thinking that given that our homebrews are 75% hstngs persons made, we should start naming them after notable hastings events and citizens, so i am officially dubbing our next one the "Pussy Has No Face Pale Ale".

go to the outdoor hot tub <---I probably would have spent most of my time here

I am imagining you hot tub traveling back in time to your teen years in HSTNGS and running into the teen version of toothless dude

(he did what!) (Austerity Ponies), Wednesday, 14 March 2012 16:45 (seven years ago) link

i am just assuming that "and drink" is appended there

sadly no, we were disorganized in terms of cooler smuggling and didn't get our shit together enough to bring our beers into the pool area

we made up for it by going back to our cabin and drinking everything we could before dinner, after which we drank more

btw our cabin was awesome, it had half a mounted bear on the wall

thuggish ruggish Brahms (DJP), Wednesday, 14 March 2012 16:48 (seven years ago) link

left or right half?

(he did what!) (Austerity Ponies), Wednesday, 14 March 2012 16:48 (seven years ago) link

lol that would have been even awesomer but it was the front

he was snarling and had one paw up, giving an insouciant "heeey"

thuggish ruggish Brahms (DJP), Wednesday, 14 March 2012 16:51 (seven years ago) link

rear half

Thu'um gang (jjjusten), Wednesday, 14 March 2012 16:53 (seven years ago) link

when you travel back in time that's the bear that steals your beer from the hot tub

(he did what!) (Austerity Ponies), Wednesday, 14 March 2012 16:55 (seven years ago) link

other things I learned:

- today's 20somethings love Florence + the Machine, hate Alexander O'Neal
- ppl who brag about their skiing chops often can't ski well
- if you spent most of your childhood skiing once a week, you don't have to worry too much about forgetting how to ski because it will come back to you within 15 minutes

thuggish ruggish Brahms (DJP), Wednesday, 14 March 2012 17:01 (seven years ago) link

in the way back times, the bear ends up wearing J's bra on its head. no one knows how this happens, but it's pretty hilarious

btw ppl at Travelocity are fucking stupid

in trying to change the date of our flight from Taipei to Tokyo by one day, one person told me there would be a total cost (including fare difference) of $686 dollars (which sucks, but is within the realm of possibility)

she transferred me to the department who issues tickets, who told me they were going to charge me $3300+ per person because they have to reissue the entire trip

this was after spending 45 minutes on hold waiting for people to chase down information

I hung up on them

an independent online phenomenon (DJP), Friday, 13 April 2012 20:40 (seven years ago) link

Jesus. This just means you weren't able to adjust your trip. They're not actually charging you the additionsl 3300/person are they?

HE HATES THESE CANS (Austerity Ponies), Friday, 13 April 2012 20:44 (seven years ago) link

No, I said "I'm not doing that, thank you" and hung up without giving them any credit card information, so I'm not getting charged for anything; even if they tried with the card I used, the transaction would be declined.

Now, what I suspect was SUPPOSED to happen is that they were supposed to refund the original trip and then book the new one at the new price with a net change of $686 but a) I've never had to do something that convoluted when changing a flight before, and b) the woman I was talking to was incompetent in communicating to the point where I would not trust her to change a fast food order, let alone an expensive plane ticket.

man you should come to Brew Day

catbus otm (gbx), Wednesday, 25 April 2012 23:32 (seven years ago) link

What am brew day?

Rachel Profiling (jjjusten), Wednesday, 25 April 2012 23:47 (seven years ago) link

my buddy's dad is a super serious home brewer. like, his garage is given over to it. every couple months it is brew day, wherein we go and "help" him brew by which I mean drink what's last of the last batch and eat jalapeño stuffed pheasant breast wrapped in bacon

huh that sounds awesome

I've decided that brew day is the most important holliday and it happens randomly and all year round

brew day is the kind of holiday that even a shiftless pinko heathen like me can get behind

Rachel Profiling (jjjusten), Thursday, 26 April 2012 15:25 (seven years ago) link

literally just got a text informing me that brew day is this coming saturday

catbus otm (gbx), Thursday, 26 April 2012 15:34 (seven years ago) link

imma track down some pics, the brewing apparatus is nuts. he actually runs tubing from the garage into the basement to fill the buckets. there are like thirty rocket kegs down there

this man is an ICU doc btw, so this is serious business

catbus otm (gbx), Thursday, 26 April 2012 15:37 (seven years ago) link

that is so fucking cool. brewing scratches all of my weird never get to do it itches wrt closet chemistry geekery, and creates a situation where me + a couple peeps basically have to hang out and yammer at each other for 4 hours w/o the distraction of bar/party/show/whatever. plus it makes alcohol that i can put in my brain. its such an ultra satisfying thing to me.

i should start a homebrewing thread. maybe there is one.

Rachel Profiling (jjjusten), Thursday, 26 April 2012 15:44 (seven years ago) link

I've got a kit that was bequeathed to me, and never used. Hmmm

catbus otm (gbx), Thursday, 26 April 2012 15:46 (seven years ago) link

we currently have an old english ipa and a bitter in the fermenters. the ipa is measuring at 9.6% potential alcohol. it has (this is literal, not figurative btw) A POUND of hops in it for a 4.5 gallon batch. even the furious clone we did only had 4 oz of hops. i fully expect it to hurt to drink it and am soooooo excited to find out.

Rachel Profiling (jjjusten), Thursday, 26 April 2012 15:48 (seven years ago) link

woah

when is that going to be drinkable *furiously examines calendar*

also you should talk to my dad, he's been toying with the idea of doing a beer in addition to his wine adventures

I'M THAT POSTA, AAAAAAAAAH (DJP), Thursday, 26 April 2012 15:49 (seven years ago) link

the prob with the crazy ipa is that it takes forever to be ready - iirc its 2 weeks in the primary fermenter, 4-6 weeks in the secondary, and then 6 weeks of bottle conditioning? and those are minimums. i mean theres stuff that takes a year so i shouldnt complain but i want to drink it now

i forgot about the wine thing, how is that going?

Rachel Profiling (jjjusten), Thursday, 26 April 2012 15:55 (seven years ago) link

He's doing a red wine right now; I can't remember if the grapes were pinot noir- or malbec-related. He's been geeking out over the fermentation process and every time we see him he brings samplers from his various batches for us to taste. I think the end result is going to be a pretty robust red wine reminiscent of a strong pinot noir, verging on cabernet.

I'M THAT POSTA, AAAAAAAAAH (DJP), Thursday, 26 April 2012 16:00 (seven years ago) link

thats awesome! is he growing the grapes or?

wine making seems way more visionary and long-term than brewing

Rachel Profiling (jjjusten), Thursday, 26 April 2012 16:05 (seven years ago) link

He's got 200+ vines growing next to our house surrounded by an electric fence to discourage deer. I recommend calling him up and asking if you can swing by to check it out because it's kind of crazy amazeballs.

I'M THAT POSTA, AAAAAAAAAH (DJP), Thursday, 26 April 2012 16:16 (seven years ago) link

yeah growing grapes for wine is pretty next level. i have considered planting my own hops but A) i am a crap gardener and hate gardening b) my neighbors are stupid and old and would prob just assume i was growing dope in my backyard

he's the foot tapper, right? did not meet him, fortunately. might have been in the wrong part of the airport for that.

i wanted to buy all of the snacks at those cibo markets.

also, the smoking section outside the terminal has a hut with a heater you can activate by pushing a button. i tried to sit in it but it was the hottest place on earth even without the heater switched on. jergins smartly suggested it was built with ice fishing in mind.

lxy, Thursday, 17 May 2012 01:57 (seven years ago) link

It is usually a LOT colder here at this time of year... I imagine those smoking/heater areas are brilliant in cold weather!

It's an OK movie. I never actually recommend it to anyone because there are probably hundreds of other worthy movies one should see. It's kind of a fantasy movie built around the chauvinism and limits of being a tourist, and the un-sustainability of planned communities. I feel like if I spend any more time treating it critically, I'm wasting my time.

A nurse practitioner friend of mine was telling me a horrific/hilarious story about a supervisor on his floor at a previous hospital job who was having a fit because the receptionist wasn't at her desk one morning at 9:00; when the receptionist did show up, she (a black woman) was wearing a head wrap because he hair wasn't done and the supervisor lit into her on the floor in front of everyone and ended with the line "... and who do you think you are with that hair wrap, Aunt Jemima?"

Obv this created an HR shitstorm that led to the supervisor delivering the following apology: "I'm sorry, I didn't mean to call you Aunt Jemima; you looked more like Mrs. Butterworth."

also last weekend some friends were in town for their 15-year college reunion and I heard a painfully hilarious story from one woman about her time as a resident tutor when a kid in her entryway got so wasted at a finals club party that he shat himself, but instead of throwing away his pants he decided to dump them in a utility sink and set them on fire

ahaha. that beats the naked man in bathroom flushing soiled pants down toilet story.

the best part was that he was in a suite with a fireplace but decided that the fireplace would be a terrible place to set something on fire

the utility sink underneath the smoke detector, on the other hand...

expensive rent isn't the only reason 98% of Harvard students live on campus; most of the dorm rooms are nicer than the apartments near Harvard Square (my freshman year room was a 2 bedroom suite with dark wood paneling, a fireplace, a window seat and a claw-foot tub in the bathroom)

The only reason I didn't have a fireplace after freshman year is because I lived in a "newer" dorm (built in 1901) that didn't have any. I did have a duplex junior year and a walkup with a 475 square foot common room and 22-ft vaulted ceilings with skylights and access to the dorm's bell tower, though.

I keep reading thru the _50 Shades of Grey_ thread. A. bought the book for me as a joke last week. It is *terrible*.

I hope someone on the thread notes that there is a whole scene where the male protagonist gets an ob/gyn to come see the female protagonist and then says, "I can't wait to get you naked."

Yes, because isn't every woman's dream to have sex right after a PELVIC EXAM?!

at a lesser ivy league institution

sophomore year two of my friends, by sheer chance, ended up with the #1 and #2 picks in the housing lottery (one was the actual, random first pick; the other one got the pick before that by winning some dumb contest?). this was an oft whispered-about housing lottery ~situation~, since it meant that #1 and #2 could each choose to live in one of two rooms that, together, were the whole top floor of one of the older dorms. the actual assigned rooms were pretty tiny, and triples, but they opened on to a shared common space that was legitimately huge (at LEAST 20x20). plus, miraculously, that 'common space' was actually private---you could only get to it through the dorm rooms, or by a door that only opened to those dorm rooms' keys. also there were two bathrooms.

we installed a full bar (friend #1 actually hammered brass over a huge piece of wood and stole a blood pump to serve drinks), got hell of couches, built a five gallon [REDACTED] called the death star, and were able to have enormous should-have-been-busted parties because if security came to check in (there were these little things they had to beep some device against on each floor), you'd see them slowly walking up the four flights of spiraling stairs and tell everyone inside to shut up. no trouble found us, except when a damage deposit got withheld because the lawnmower my friends were breaking down to use in a hovercraft leaked some oil on the carpet.

when i lived in montana, i lived in a house with a stoner and a retarded golden retriever named "boof", and the three of us had a wistful encounter with an indentured vacuum salesman

every so often i forget this town is crazy as you all say it is then BOOM someone's casually telling me about some bestiality incident then BOOM i'm hearing some story of mutual pube shaving in a bathtub* then BOOM a coworker str8 up uses the phrase "a colored" in the break room.

a friend came to visit, which in her case is usually a silly drinking and dancing sort of event, but i guess we had all of our fun grilling all day, because we got on some long conversation abt race/gender/queer stuff that night and every five minutes or so i would remember a brand new incident of some goomba in town spouting the most baseline racist, awful, crazy shit i've ever heard a real person say. even into the next morning i was like 'oh yeah the girl who got fired for yelling the n word on the sales floor' and 'oh yeah the guy who when he was bored at work would yell PAGING DR. F****T into a megaphone' and on like that. it was a slow revealing shock how much i had just tuned out.

We did leave a note on the car that blocked us in that said "Next time, leave your goddamned keys with an attendant, you SELFISH MOTHERFUCKERS!!!"

Also, we didn't have to pay since we were stuck in the garage for almost as long as we spent in the restaurant below it eating

No, it is actually very uncommon. This is probably the only garage in town where this particular clusterfuck could happen.

I had a crazy shift last night and then I had a crazy dream afterward... that John had accidentally murdered someone and then decided to frame deX's MOTHER for it. And deX was going along with it.

I woke up very disoriented and wondering why those two were trying to get me to go along with it (and also why they told me in the first place).

Verdict: crazy shifts plus weird audio books plus caffeine = maybe not such a good plan.

Sara R-C, Saturday, 4 August 2012 03:11 (seven years ago) link

Wow, that sure was a crazy DREAM. I don't even know where that DREAM would have come from since that NEVER HAPPENED

I'm offended that you seem to think that I would "accidentally" murder someone.

O_o-O_O-o_O (jjjusten), Saturday, 4 August 2012 14:35 (seven years ago) link

Pretty sure my subconscious was putting you guys right into the audio book I'm listening to in the car. Although the murder in it was not accidental at all.

Lil Swayne of Pie (DJP), Tuesday, 14 August 2012 18:45 (seven years ago) link

I'm alive, just super busy. Yesterday started an 8 day stretch of days off, which sounds relaxing... but (irony alert) I was stuck all day in HSTNGS today with J. I put her in the local theater camp, which is only four mornings all summer - but she stretched the day out to involve dusting bottles at Mark's store, going to lunch and spending until 3 pm hanging around with her Grandma Jane. Then I came home and had zero time for myself yet again bc she wanted tons more attention... grrrr.

She's going to be 10 on Thursday and I love her to death but OMG I need a few non-work, non-family days.

Upside: 4l3x is 14 and basically amuses himself all day, plus he just asked if we could stay up and watch an MST3K after J goes to sleep. Okay, as long as I can crochet or x stitch while we watch, I'm fine with that!

Something one of my R friends posted about the debate last night.

"US voters, for the most part, forget these two may/would be the persons who represent the US in a myriad foreign capacities and are the handshakers and baby kissers on many domestic as well. Oh yeah, plus, if something happens to #1, they are in charge until #1 is back in the office again."

My response was pretty much, Really? What evidence do you have that people don't know what a "vice president" is?

I think it's somewhat hilarious that Republicans, who have advocated this nutty neo-conservative, super aggressive foreign policy for the last 10+ years have suddenly gotten the vapors over how "rude" Biden is.

One year at Christmas dinner my Dad was really laying it on with blatant racist nonsense. It was so disheartening.

Crazy patient stories:

1. alcoholic withdrawal guy who asked for Ativan (anti-anxiety med) every time I went into his room and claimed he was having a panic attack. Except that he was asleep every time I went in there and then he went right back to sleep as I was leaving. Best panic attacks ever! (Or worst?)

2. Dude in perfectly stable condition telling his wife on the phone that he'd see her tomorrow, "probably for the last time." Then telling me about the casket he rented for himself bc he's going to be cremated. Me: Did you at least rent a nice one? Patient: No, I rented the cheapest one I could find! Me: Okay then!

3. Occasionally inappropriate patient asking the black male nursing assistant if it's true that "black men have bigger dicks" than white men. The nurse in the room said, "you have to stop being inappropriate!" But honestly, if I had been the nursing assistant, I would have confidently told him, "DEFINITELY!"

Kind of entertaining myself today watching St4c3y go from believing somehow Romney was going to win NJ and NY (?!) to the end of the election...

...but it's also just SAD to me that she can't see outside of her own perspective even the tiniest bit.

It must be weird to live like that?!

Super sentimental right now, maybe it's time I go to sleep.

But thanks for being some of the sane HSTNGS people!

I was sleep-deprived for the past 5 days and I have a raging headache right now.

Time for caffeine and maybe ibuprofen (and food, don't worry medical people, I will have food w/my ibuprofen).

Sara R-C, Wednesday, 7 November 2012 17:39 (seven years ago) link

Probably that is a good Rx for all of us.

Never had durian. I will get some in me.

Is Durian in season? I got the impression that it wasn't when last I was at a Thai restaurant.

I ordered some once at Sawatdee and it was pretty good. But everyone claims it smells horrible, so I don't know...? (John was there this particular night, actually; we were out with MA1A and C3l3n4 and they made fun of us for talking like soap opera characters because we often used each other's names when talking to each other. Usually because we were a bit annoyed with each other...)

i have never given you cause to be annoyed with me iirc

posting from stet's thing that 1996ifies the whole site makes this...strange...

arby's, Friday, 23 November 2012 01:50 (seven years ago) link

Oh, lord, I forgot you were down near Gobblegait arby's.

The 1996 thing sounds intriguing. Are there lots of Bob Dole voiceovers insisting that "Bob Dole is winning this election?!"

Sara R-C, Friday, 23 November 2012 22:20 (seven years ago) link

yeah it isn't the best part of town unless you're good at sleeping through a PA system outside your bedroom window from time to time.

stet's thing doesn't have bob dole saying bob dole, but it does have the words "web ring" and this graphic http://ilxor.com/1996/uc.png so all in all a winning situation
