I’m just finishing my third day in Troy and I’m slowly but surely getting my bearings. Hopefully I’ll have a job soon and I’ll start meeting new people. So far the Job Hunt is going slow, but hopefully I’ll find something within a week or two. I hope I do at least. God I’ll be disappointed if I don’t.
Real life is a three-titted bitch.
Maybe I should sell myself on the corner of John R and Metro Pkwy. Good thinking, Me!
Thanks to my awesome friend Karianne I have a ANOTHER new YouTube obsession, clips of the insane kids that take part in the national spelling bee. Two of my favorites are Rebecca Sealfon (winner of the 1997 bee) and Evan O’Dorney (winner of the 2007 bee). Below is a clip of Rebecca, check out Evan HERE.
Norma Jean Lee aka NormaLeeShow on youtube, is so crazy that you can’t help but laugh. She’s my new obsession. Check her out and take comfort in the fact that you aren’t related to her, unless you are in which case I want to be your friend.
And Dateline’s To Catch A Predator is so creepy and good.
Francis Ford Coppola (Director of Godfather 1, 2, & 3) – Born in Detroit but moved to NYC when his mom, Carmine, became the first flautist for the NBC Symphony Orchestra (she was also the first flautist for the Detroit Symphony Orchestra). That’s one effing talented family.
Some other celebs that hail from Detroit but I don’t feel like saying anything about are Lily Tomlin, Selma Blair, James Earl Jones, Elaine Stritch, and James Lipton.
Can’t Let Go – Landon Pigg Well, I can’t let go No, I can’t let go of you You’re holding me back without even trying to. I can’t let go I can’t move on from the past Without lifting a finger you’re holding me back
Every year the newspaper from my home puts out a few pages of all the high school graduates. This past week, while visiting my parents, the issue of the paper with the graduates happened to arrive. While looking at it my mom all of the sudden said "Chia-Chia?" To which I replied, "What the hell is wrong with you?"
Turns out that nothing is wrong with my mother, she was just reading a name.
There is a band that I actually heard of quite a while ago but unfortunately for me didn’t pay much attention to. The band is Mates of State and I first heard them on This American Life doing a cover of California from The O.C. I’ve included that cover below, so you should definitely check it out.
They’ve just released a new album entitled Re-Arrange Us, it’s on iTunes if you’d like to get more of a taste of what they’re all about. I recommend giving them a listen. I’m not so much a fan of their cd Team Boo, but I do like what I’ve heard of Re-Arrange Us so don’t be too critical of them until you’ve heard their newest.
