"If the day and the night are such that you greet them with joy, and life emits a fragrance like flowers and sweet-scented herbs, is more elastic, more starry, more immortal- that is your success. All nature is your congratulation, and you have cause momentarily to bless yourself. The greatest gains and values are farthest from being appreciated. We easily come to doubt if they exist. We soon forget them. They are the highest reality. Perhaps the facts most astounding and most real are never communicated by man to man. The true harvest of my daily life is somewhat as intangible and indescribable as the tints of morning or evening. It is a little star-dust caught, a segment of the rainbow which I have clutched." - Henry David Thoreau

It's been so fucking long! It snowed hella lot, I almost PK'd on the ice, and I'm going back to see the cats tomorrow! (Or... today.) The Killer's Hot Fuss
is probably the best album I heard in a long, long, long time.

Britney Spears Got Married?

...Then got it immediately annulled
. Why I am not surprised? Did some tequila and a 'Friends' episode inspire her? Well, it's all "reported," so maybe I should have some doubts about our beloved B.S.
Hee, I finally got my RK Theme Song Collection CD...
Yaaarg... having to take a subway and bus to Queens just to get it... (an anime "warehouse"
). The train ride was nothing, but I accidently took the bus that went in the wrong direction and rode it for almost half an hour to Jamaica rather than the 10 minutes to College Point!! Stupid!!
At least I wasn't alone... but when I got on the bus that went in the right direction, I think it was the same! I thought the driver looked suspiciously familiar, and I remembered this cracked part above the exit (and my friend recognized the oil stains on the back of the bus). How embarassing...
Happy late New Year and early Three King's (and way early Chinese New Year's -- money, money, money).

: ...and now Chris and Saddam just keep killing each other over and over and I don't know which one to pick.
"What the hell happened to you?"
: You got kicked out of here for being a headstrong rebel and now you're a whiny little bitch.
"Well, I just don't know which one to pick!"
: No, you've become dependent on relationships. So you haven't even considered the option of not being with either of them. If you're not sexually attracted to someone, you're not ever going to be. But Saddam isn't right either. He's the other extreme. You need to spend time alone, so you can find the balance, the middle ground. That's what I always do because I'm a Buddhist.
: Wow, you're right. You know I've had steady relationships for the last thousand years and when one ends, I just start another one. But I haven't taken the time to be secure with myself.
: Hey, thanks, God. I forgot how clear you make things sometimes.
: It was nice to see you again, Satan.
: You too.
I should really stop making these posts of what I want to buy that haven't been released yet... all righty this will be the last one for a while, but if I hadn't been so damned impatient and waited for a few days for the images to be available at Amazon this wouldn't even be necessary!
Srsly, what's going on with the image of The Simpsons 7th Season boxset? I want to see Marge's fucked-up head on Amazon already!!

Usually I don't go to J&R
's Clearance Outlet because there really aren't any good selections for a good price, unless they have their 99Â¢ CD sale (Lifehouse and Our Lady Peace last time), but I bought the Zatoichi
DVDs for $9.99. It was unwrapped, but there weren't any heavy scratches on the cover and the discs were in perfect condition. Two movies for the price of one! Suck on that, everybody else. ...Though now I have two copies of Sonatine
and I have Quentin Tarantino presenting the film... didn't he present Hero
, too? Too bad I saw it two years ago, and bought it for $5.95, QT. Well... at least it's Quentin Tarantino and not Mischa Barton or something. Wow, I haven't typed this much about myself since the second entry. Maybe I'll talk about how stupid War & Beauty
(HK drama) was next time! The possibilities are endless.

Wow money's still comin' in. Just got $100 yesterday; this year is probably the record: about $465. (I lost count. Plus I spent a Jackson or something.)
Bought John Mayer for $2.99, and Eminem and Jay-Z for $10.99 each. Also I'm seeing a new serial, but I keep missing the English title!!!!!!!!!! It's fairly interesting. Plus one of the main character's name sounds like pork bone (joo gawt).
Edit: Oh-ho! So it's called Strike At Heart, see, and it's about a clique, hear? Only it's a martial arts clique, see...

I love the middle seasons and the sixth season is no different -- so many good quotes I didn't realize were season six:
: Never! Never, Marge! I can't live the button-down life like you. I want it all: the terrifying lows, the dizzying highs, the creamy middles. Sure, I might offend a few of the bluenoses with my cocky stride and musky odors -- oh, I'll never be the darling of the so-called city fathers, who cluck their tongues, stroke their beards, and talk about what's to be done with this Homer Simpson?!
: Attention, Marge Simpson: your son has been arrested. [later]
Attention, Marge Simpson: we've also arrested your older, balder, fatter son.
: Back, you robots! Nobody ruins my family vacation but me... and maybe the boy!
: I don't think Bob won that election legally. I can't believe a convicted felon would get so many votes and another convicted felon would get so few.
: Now look, boy: if your Dad goes gaga, you just use that... Shin of yours to call me and I'll come a-running. But don't be reading my mind between four and five. That's Willy's time!
: Have you noticed any change in Bart?
: New glasses?
: No... he looks like something might be disturbing him.
: Probably misses his old glasses.
: I guess we could get more involved in Bart's activities but then I'd be afraid of smothering him.
: Yeah, and then we'd get the chair.
: That's not what I meant.
: It was, Marge, admit it.
: I'm worried about the kids, Homey. Lisa's becoming very obsessive. This morning I caught her trying to dissect her own raincoat.
I know. And this perpetual motion machine she made today is a joke! It just keeps going faster and faster.
: And Bart isn't doing very well either. He needs boundaries and structure. There's something about flying a kite at night that's so unwholesome. [looks out window]
: [creepy voice]
Hello, Mother dear.
: [closing the curtains]
That's it: we have to get them back to school.
: I'm with you, Marge. Lisa! Get in here. In this house, we obey the laws of thermodynamics!
: Talking out of turn... that's a paddling. Looking out the window... that's a paddling. Staring at my sandals... that's a paddling. Paddling the school canoe... oh, you better believe that's a paddling.
: I can't relax, nor can I yield, relent or -- only two synonyms? OH MY GOD! I'M LOSING MY PERSPICACITY!!!! AAAAAAAAHHH! [runs away]
: It's always in the last place you look.
: Boy, when Marge first told me she was going to the police academy, I thought it'd be fun and exciting, you know, like that movie, Spaceballs. But instead it's been painful and disturbing like that movie, Police Academy.
And of course, followng the Police Academy insult train: "How could you?! Haven't you learned anything from that guy who gives those sermons at church? Captain Whatshisname? We live in a society of laws. Why do you think I took you to all those Police Academy movies? For fun?! Well, I didn't hear anybody laughing! Did you?! Except at that guy who made sound effects. Where was I? Oh yeah: stay out of my booze."
Hehe and so much more! It's funny, I read some reviews of these older episodes and a number of people thought they were horrible, while I was too young to see it and understand it at the original air date. Now I think the new ones suck, but I don't think I'm biased, I actually quite liked it up to around 2001, 2002. These last two seasons were like, WTF? Maybe ten years down the line, I will be quoting fom the sixteenth season, too. Hm... ::ponders thoughtfully for no reason again::
Oh and I really hate Dual Discs, of which I already own three (music and DVD content for the same price as the song album -- can't... resist...). In the new imports I've seen they still release them in two separate discs. Are DD's that popular?? I think Dual Disc sucks because now it's twice as likely for the information to get marred, plus, no disc art!! It's also a real bitch to store. I'm so glad the Revenge of the Sith soundtrack (which includes a DVD) didn't opt to go the double D way. I finally gained a little respect back for George Lucas.

Ugh, I want so much stuff
, I'm disgusted with myself, but here it goes again:
I was going to get the Veronica Mars soundtrack on the release day, but it was too expensive so I am patiently biding my time...
Then there's stuff that don't even have images yet, including the Shakira - Oral Fixation CD (I must be stuck back in the 20th century!), and The Simpsons 7th Season.
Sin City - Recut & Extended Edition: Haha, I knew not buying that bare-bones release back in August was a good idea. Suck on that, everyone else who bought it then!
