"it was a good day"

Yesterday was . I adopted Spock, the cat. He came last night and he is currently hiding in a corner under my bathtub. His head is kind of in between the wall and the tub. We made eye contact this morning, though. Sadie seems to not care at all that there is a cat living in the bathroom but maybe she just doesn't get it.

At work yesterday we listened to Moby Dick and it made me feel really insane. The book not the song. Then I got a phonecall saying that they're going to use the image of my piece for the postcard for the show at Brooklyn Arts Council I'm going to be in in February. All right!!!

They say what's on the postcard sells. I've been saying that to people so I have a feeling I will break that tradition or myth or whatever.

I thought Megan and I should do another "TOP TEN MUSIC EVER" list for 2008 but we immediately couldn't agree on Lil' Wayne so I guess that's not happening. This is the short version of my list:
MJB is da MVP

Spock the cat

For the last 8 months or so I've been wondering if I should get Sadie a friend. She's super, super playful and sometimes I can't play with her enough etc.

I've been thinking more seriously about it lately and looked up some of the rescue groups in Brooklyn and perused some cats. I saw an all black cat named Spock. His description said he wishes to no longer be alien to a permanent home. His brother's name is Yoda, his sister's names are aliens that I don't know about.

If there was ever "meant to be" type cat for this situation I have to think that it would be this little guy.

I emailed them. I'm going to meet him. I don't want to jinx myself...but Spock the cat. He might be around.


I listened to the entire album of Circus and let me be the first to tell you that it is actually not very good. The first 2 singles are the FIRST 2 SONGS! and it really just goes downhill from there. If the next single is what they advertise on the front it is going to be a not so great ballad.

The one other song on it I really liked was Unusual You. Well, I'm guessing it was called that. I didn't have a track list in front of me. It is kind of asking for someone to do a filk remake of it and make it about everyone's favorite vulcan. You'd really only have to substitute the word "angel" for "vulcan".

competitive sports

I made that for Purple the Magazine #2. Purple is one of the most fun things. My last assignment was "The Dark Side of the Moon". At first I thought I really dropped the ball on it but I think that I didn't. It worked.

There should be a Purple website or something but there isn't ( that I know of).


Have you heard?

BRIT IS BACK! I really liked Womanizer. Maybe I loved it. I do love it. I love the jock jams beginning.

And now I really like Circus. Circus the album? buyin' it!

I feel like it's not fair to compare everything she does to Toxic. Toxic is actually the best song in the world. That's a lot of pressure.

Wendy And Lucy

is coming out the week. It'll be at film forum.

In case you don't know, this is the movie where Michelle Williams totally rips off my look.

It also looks really depressing.

I can't wait to go see it. It will be like watching my depressing future!!

Fortunately or unfortunately I'm getting my haircut today so I won't have the same haircut while I'm sitting there watching it. In a blue zip up sweatshirt.

OMG Adam Davies is hanging up a show of mine for me in Portland right now! It is in a really prestigious place - A coffee shop!!!!! I'm kidding but coffee shops really ARE something there.

I wonder what it will look like? Who knows!? not me! I told them to hang things in clusters or clouds. I have a very strict and specific vision obviously.


45 pieces to be exact.

Oh, and in case you were wondering what Adam Davies was doing on Monday - he was somehow getting purple ink all over my laptop keyboard but not telling me about it until I got home. The next day. Instead he said he left a present for me. I'm not mad but I was freaked. It makes me make more typos. Somehow. It'll be fixed. He will Pay. But he is hanging my show for me so like, it's cool.

And I'm here to recruit you

I saw MILK this weekend while I was in Philly and I loved it. I loved it. It was a lot like the documentary, The Times of Harvey Milk, and I loved that too. I'm so glad this movie was made. Now. It's perfect timing - more people need to know about Harvey Milk.

Sean Penn had him down. He was great. He did it. James Franco was good, too. Although, there's not much to compare him to in terms of "real life Scott " since he wasn't in the doc at all really...and there's barely any video or audio footage of him around. I heard Terry Gross interviewing James Franco last week -He talked about how the director of the documentary had to find old footage that didn't make the cut of Scott and put it on DVD so James Franco could see and hear this guy he was playing.

I made a note to myself last week that said this - "James Franco, not Seth Rogan". Totally.

Anyway, I loved Milk. I keep trying to think of him/the movie as something really hopeful and inspiring rather than something cripplingly depressing. After I saw the documentary I was so upset. I cried so much. I cried so much at MILK , too. I always cry so much. After I watched the documentary a while ago I thought I couldn't deal with reading the book. I think I will read the book, though.

Harvey Milk, the person, and Sean Penn playing him, was hilarious, too.

It really is sad.

His "Hope" Speech.

It makes me kind of hate the band Harvey Milk for having that name. They aren't righteous enough, don't deserve it. Maybe that's not fair. Whatever.
