Billy Prince is the Tweaker...

I started a Billy facebook group. I'm really proud of it. Probably the most bitchin' thing I've ever done. Besides, you know, finding that little plastic guy in the trash that now sits on top of my computer. That was amazingly bitchin'.

I got my first haircut since approximately the end of July. I am unsure of the date, but I know I got one before I left for TN. I am experiencing what I like to call, "Ghost Hair." After getting used to my hair blowing in the wind and moving when I shake my head, after getting it all chopped off, it feels like it's still there. But it's not. It's freaky. It'll take some getting used to.

I just don't understand...

This whole Teri Schiavo case. But before I get too deep into that, I guess I should explain my position on the subject of prolonging life longer than should be. I feel that if a person is in a state that only machines are keeping them alive, then they have essentially lost their humanity. They are no longer a functioning entity. I know it's bad to boil a person down to that, but it's not life. It's unnatural...the fact that they would be dead without machines should tell people that they are not really alive anymore. I know that you can say that medicines do the same thing, and you'd be partly correct. They keep you alive, but it's within your own power. Your body, on it's own, is alive.

So basically, I agree with the courts decision to remove the feeding tube. I know her parents are heartbroken, etc...etc...and all the idiotic conservatives are up in arms and Jeb Bush is trying to step in and "save the day" (man, he's slowly catching his brother as the worst Bush). It just pisses me off to see them claim this woman can feel and is alive. Honor her wishes. Let her die.

Boy, that was a depressing post, I'm sorry.

The Aftermath...

So the Hail RD pulled a fast one on me, and took "selected" songs from my setlist, loaded them into iTunes, and mixed them in with songs of her choice, like NSYNC, Britney Spears, Beyonce, and "The Cotten Eyed Joe." And when I say "selected," I mean "Dance to the Music" by Sly and the Family Stone. So needless to say, anything adventerous I wanted to play got rejected. I know it was a "formal" and people probably want to hear things they might know previously, how many times do we need to hear "Hey Ya!"? And more than likely I'm making this a bigger deal that it should be, but oh well. I still can't do the freaking electric slide.

Anyways, I'm hosting a dance party with real bitchin' tunes in my room on Wednesday night, March 23rd, anyone is welcome to attend. And I will probably be dancing alone.

Set List for the Hail Hall Formal...

(Pending Hail RD approval...freedom of speech whaaaa??)

New, finalized setlist...I think...
  1. Daft Punk is Playing at My House - LCD Soundsystem
  2. Canned Heat - Jamiroquoi
  3. Banquet (Disco Edit) - Bloc Party
  4. Dance To The Music - Sly and the Family Stone
  5. Take Me Out (Morgan Geist Remix) - Franz Ferdinand
  6. A Little Less Conversation (JXL Remix) - Elvis Presley
  7. Dragostea Din Tei - O-Zone
  8. Such Great Heights (Remix) - The Postal Service
  9. Bold Soul Sister - Black and White Affair
  10. Umbrella of Love (Ron Curty Mix) - United States of Electronica
  11. Just Couldn't Tie Me Down - The Black Keys
  12. Jump Around (Extended Version) - House of Pain
  13. Since I Left You - The Avalanches
  14. Rock The Casbah - Brokedown Palace
  15. Mars Arizona (DFA Remix) - Blues Explosion
There are a few changes my inital list from last night, mainly I added a few more. Again, it's doubtful the entire set will be played...I'm hoping I can get to at least "Umbrella of Love," because that will get the floor going. I gave up any hopes of creating a "Middle School" theme when I realized that if it's not going to want to me dance, then it probably won't work on anyone else. Don't you just love forcing your music onto other people?!

Setlist, circa Friday night:
  1. Daft Punk is Playing at My House - LCD Soundsystem
  2. Canned Heat - Jamiroquoi
  3. Banquet (Disco Edit) - Bloc Party
  4. Dance To The Music - Sly and the Family Stone
  5. Dragostea Din Tei - O-Zone
  6. Such Great Heights (Remix) - Postal Service
  7. It's For You - Out Hud
  8. Bold Soul Sister - Black and White Affair
  9. Just Couldn't Tie Me Down - The Black Keys
  10. Since I Left You - The Avalanches
  11. Take Me Out (Morgan Geist Remix) - Franz Ferdinand
  12. Mars Arizona (DFA Remix) - Blues Explosion
Can't do too much with it, since I'm not the only DJ, but it's about an hours worth of material, and it probably won't all get played. I think it will be a lof of fun. I personally will be a dancing machine with my date Sam Dorgan, the rockinest Ohioan around.

So I've noticed recently...

That I can't speak coherently anymore. This is somewhat distressing, particularly since I think that making sense when you speak is paramount to the other person understanding you. Maybe it's just this readjustment to doing work again after being in the land of sun and flavor for a week, or maybe I'm just retarded. Probably the latter.

Quotes to live by:
  1. "Thanks for breaking glass where my kids play."
  2. "Movie doesn't even rhyme with beach!"
  3. "That's really cool...asshole."
  4. "Hey you! Are you hot? Yeah, you're hot!"

Ode To Hakamova...

Oh Hakamova, I still remember the day I brought you home from that Wal-Mart in Nashville in that plastic cup. You were the only Beta still available, and it was fate that we were joined to experience college life together. I bought you a small tank, though it is a stretch to call it a tank. More like a cup. But you loved it becasue it had this green plastic tree thing that you could swim around and sparkling white rocks to cover the barren floor. I would show you your reflection in the mirror and you would get really pissed off and look all mean. You were amazing. Then, the honeymoon started to end. I got tired of cleaning your cup. You really should have learned how to clean up after yourself, then perhaps you would still be here. But anyways, you and I co-existed for over a year, and I wouldn't trade it for anything. Now you are going to a better home, with someone who might actually remember to feed you and change your water. I'm sure you'll be happier there, but don't forget the times we had. Take care, Hakamova.

Your friend,
Eric Domkowski
