My life is complete.


SIMH: Nicki Minaj, "Superbass"

I have had the weirdest taste in music lately. Usually I'm all about the rock, but I've been revisiting my love of techno and house, and have been really into glitter pop music. I never thought I'd be one to like Nicki Minaj enough to pay for one of her songs, but I did. This song played on the way home from Tracks' Drag Nation last Friday night; we blasted the shit out of it, the speakers in my friend's car glowing with each thump of the bass. It was just so infectious and fun that it has been stuck in my head since.

Here's a lil ear candy for you.

Cryptic, non-contextual question of the day.

From an extended DM convo with my Twitter friend, Bob:

Some people are fantastic in small spurts and can't make constant contact work. Some couples can't function in small spurts and need the constant contact to make it work. It's possible always being around each other could kill what you have now. Is it worth the chance of losing it, if it means it does actually work, and work well?

It probably isn't worth it. When it comes to relationships, I don't like my odds. And if I've learned anything over the years, it's to stop over-analyzing and to enjoy what you have while you have it.

SIMH: Mickey & Sylvia, "Love Is Strange"

My friend Joan Roman was tweeting like a madwoman about this song by Mickey & Sylvia this morning and now I can't stop humming the three lyrics I know.

Yeah, some blog posts don't really need more explanation.

My horoscope, broken down.

From my Google homepage and

You may be more unconventional than others realize, even if it appears that you're following the party line.
(Yes. Obviously. I'm a weirdo.)

Your ideas might be quite progressive, yet hiding them now is a good idea so you don't seem out of place at work.
(Again, yes. This is generally good when you work at a relative conservative company, as I've come to learn. Not every company is as delightfully liberal as City Sports. Companies with highly organized levels of bureaucracy can be open to change and progressive ideas, but only if they are presented in with a meek and profit-driven mentality.)

Luckily, you have the ability to concentrate fully on your career. Fortunately, your singular focus may be enough to ease the developing pressure in other areas of your life at this time.

(Yeah. SO LUCKY. My car is dying, headed toward what will undoubtedly be a fantastic explosion of bald tires and axles on 36, I'm not getting laid and the rent is too damn high. Thanks for the assurance, horoscope.)
