1. interesting discussion on Facebook about how the gentle manipulation of humans may be a positive thing…hmmm. I will get back to you on this.
2. I have two tasks to complete. Then there will be NO EXCUSE not to move on to the FINAL FRONTIERS of ROOM CLEANSING and COMPUTER DOMINATION…
3. my bathroom is atrocious. I’m seriously from a poisonous species. You do not want to know me. No. Get out. I am serious. It’s better this way……(cue sadViolins)
4. I’m thinking of avoiding the Internet but that actually feels ill-advised and irresponsible. Addictive Internet behavior and compulsive negativity does not mean one needs to quit blogging and withdraw one’s President-ence. I just need to go back to the practicing.
5. I have a thought that I might like to bake this weekend, so that Cake-like-Birthday-product may be had. Also Birthday boy (birthdays last a week!) will get to pick his dessert..
6. We are going on a barbecue trip tomorrow (Saturday). We’ll most likely make a video as well 🙂 we haven’t done that in forever. I know I keep saying that, but No! I mean it!, and it is True! …you mark my words … you mark my words …
7. I will now take a short pause to rub my hands together nefariously. I will take a photograph of myself doing so, ever mindful of the fact that on Twitter we are talking mildly about Narcisstic ReTweeting. When I am Queen, we shall retweet EVERYTHING I decree. Even my BLINKING shall be reTWEETABLE.
8. Calm down. OMG…I’m totally KIDDING. I have no idea what kind of mood I’m in …but NO…everytime I type something into Twit-deck, I do NOT require an advertisement for a magic iPhizzle. No THANK you, green-egg-icon-space-bot. Gettenzie-a-life!!!!!
Here is my Fetching Series of Photographs, oh People of the Screen….gaze and B A-Mazed.

(Really, I just end up laughing at my own stupidity at the end, as my Hatched Plan does not come to Fruition.)

[LATER EDIT…. did I spell “narcisscisstictytic wrong? Probobably. Oh whale. This is the way the detergent gets in our cherry soda. Flarg.]


when life gives you spam…

Cheap Hotels

I just found a blog comment that did NOT get through my spam folder. I was looking at my blog stats. I am an attention whore. Blog stats are very interesting. They reveal so much. The point of this blog is merely to say, that when more than eight people visit my blog, I get really excited – whatever the reason. And for the most part, people were actually visiting my blog because I had been pointed to by someone who was impressed by my potential and possible / current awesomeness. So that was kinda ROCK!

Of course, I am easily distracted, so I noticed an insightful and Spamalicious comment left on a whiny post from last July, left by ‘Cheap Hotels.’ Do I erase this comment? hmm?


Why not make spam into lemonade?! Or silliness (such as this post) into an Interrobang?! Because spam is nasty and spam-o-nade should be banned before it’s planned? Well, there’s something to it… but we here at Den Enterprises think a frown turned upside down is fine as long as it is not on a clown. It is also a thought on the songfight boards that spama-ramma-dingdongs leave good song challenges lying around. All that rhymed, so perhaps I should record NOWly, although I do not Technically Want to right now as I am Mentally Exhausted.

(although I have to, because Jon Eric has a side challenge. Hmmm.)

Anyway, Señor Tete-a-tete (a word I remembered I knew just this weekend, and which is very French and Seductive) Hotel-o-tron; has has provided me with a stirring list of Band Names, Future Song and Album Titles, Contest Ideas, I-Am-Stumped-what-the-#$*%^-do-I-Write, What Shall I Name My Planet, Random Concept; many other and sundry Ideas:

1. Study Point Tradition Attitude
2. Shake Only Length Result
3. Somewhat Friend
4. Egg Tree [possible favorite]
5. Industrial Acid Bedroom
6. Largely Himself
7. Aircraft Competition Series
8. Gentleman Strange Manager [this sounds like a nefarious Character!!!]
9. Rather Short Future
10.Something Few Illustrate

And a good mini-paragraph / shortstory-if-you-will; which could mean something bad, OR good, and which I have chosen to twist to my pro-woman purposes … being as this weekend I was wearing an empire wasted sundress which my Helpful Mike-e-a-valian husband neglected to inform me revealeth blue yonder undies. *sigh*

12. “Consider shape, woman! Arrange your middle equally. Release to street …

…Review intention!”

And skipping number That Dreaded Number, in honor of an also suspicious new collaborator of mine since I’ve got all kindsa freaky stuff going on this weekend and am not spending the recording time I’d like on stuff as I sit here and stress-release-blog.

#14. National Issue Elsewhere.

15. I like fives, so we’ll end with:
“Priority Management. Payment Reading Request.

(this is probably because I am trying to think about incorporating this blog into a website somehow, and taking this writing thing up a notch, and incorporating my music into it somehow, and taking THAT up a notch. It’s been a heady weekend. Lotsa spinning gears)


ps. as an aside, anyone who knows the ACTUAL name of the thing that I call the Ghostbuster Sign Thingy?  -that circle with the line thingy that Dude made of ectoplasm is kinda half-hanging out of, and you give it to me – shiny D-xets for you! Pronounced (DUCK-IT’s). It’s like money. From Xondor. It buys you chocolate. From Squirk. And such things to not come cheaply. It’s hard to get chocolate flown in from my corner of the universe.

when life gives you spam…

1. whatever your “it” happens to be, when you have reached the critical mass of Doing the First Load of Screaming-Assed-Laundry-Problem Part of It, you have begun to tackle a critical part of your problem and are going to be Okay. Perhaps even A-Okay.
2. I have something fun to do on Thursday night! ILLUMINARE!
3. I did something fun last night. But it could have been fun-er. We’re working on that. It’ll get more fun this weekend. It’s a journey, not a destination. Dear Bob (to borrow, TYJ)! I’m quoting Aerosmith lyrics! And they are probably quoting something else.


4. That reminds me… I need to figure out something about the stay-put lipstick problem. And these toenails are not going to un-velocoraptor themselves. I am not even certain I have figured out how to SPELL V-raptor, so we’ll just change it to that for the porpoises of this blog.
5. This blog actually does NOT contain porpoises. But I have seen some that contain fish.
6. I like fish. I miss them. I would like to eat some fish now. Luckily, it is taco Wednesday, so I will get RIGHT ON THAT!
7. I have some stuff to do. LOTS of stuff! I am doing stuff for:
-something I’m making for Manhattan Glutton
-another Surprise Song, nope not tellin!

Some of these are also cover-y. There are others, some involving these folks, some not. These are in no particular order, and some have deadlines. Also, I’m practicing furiously because I am going to start performing live. I’m also looking into the viability of forcing people to come hang out with me in Google+ and watch me do random music stuff on Sundays. It could be entertaining. Sundays seem like just as good a days as any. I dunno. It could work. I was thinking Saturdays, but that conflicts with my SWpartner’s Joeshow and even though we have not gotten anything finish-done for ages that is not very duality of me to make competitiveness so I am not going to set up a competeing songwriting hour unless he slots in something different. Besides, I may start gigging Saturdays or doing brunchy things or being more social. Saturdays are a good social day around here but on Sundays nada much is going on. And as far as I can see people do not do all that much on the Sunday. Friday is also not good because Jules does stuff then and there are LOTS of people who play in Austin on both Thursdays and Fridays and as well we are trying to start our Opal’s Thursday thing up again with our old Habana House crowd.

It looks like a lot of the Songfight people have been hanging out on the Google and also that GeekyJules who I will link later is liking it way better than the Facebook.

It looks like my Houston people have been exercising and travelling and Academically Achieving and that a visit is sorely needed from us as soon as we can swing it; trouble is we are not just talking about one set and I never know how we are going to get around to everyone.

I would also like to go to California at some point and visit my aunt. She lives San Fran, but my cousin who I would like to see is in LA.

And there is that dream I had of going to Paris with my stupid amount of miles. And promising some people I’d drive to Michigan someday. I’m not going anywhere till I record and get this room cleaned.

So much to do!

For now it’s tacos and Mexican coke and recording.

*ps. i don’t want to hear any crap about Harry Potter. no duh and i don’t care! the soundtrack kicks ass! na-na, na na naaaa. na, na. na, na….
