RIP Rich Eaves, 1962-2008

a friend of mine's father passed away very unexpectedly in his sleep, almost a month ago. he was only 45. my friend made this video tribute to his dad 24 hours after his death and it's amazing. i started crying before the images even started. his dad was a HUGE journey fan, and well, you can tell in this video.
(starts about a minute in)

just wanted to remind everyone to call their 'rents and tell them how much they love them.

blogs i like

i added them. on the side of the page. OOOOH! check em out. i'm pretty bad about updating my own on a regular basis, so know that i am even worse at reading other people's.

and if i forgot your blog, let me know and i will add it. i was typing most of these from memory anyway. these are just the ones i find to be really enjoyable to read, and impart a fun snippet of the person behind them. except for dc's, which is just straight up brilliant.

p.s. i got glasses for the first time about 6 weeks ago. here's a picture! it's weird, i feel like a poseur wearing them, but everyone seems to think i ALWAYS had them and that they suite me. could be worse, i guess.

p.p.s. i got them from a great website called, which a friend of mine recommended to me. SO cheap, the burgundy (of course) pair i posted were like $39 delivered, and the white ones were only $28 delivered. that's for everything too, anti-glare, lenses, frames, etc. what a deal!

matt damon.

matt damon, who i thought was ugly until the bourne identity, and then i realized that he was gorgeous and super sexy, has gained a bunch of weight and started parting his hair all fluffy like a child of the 70's.\

basically matt damon looks exactly like my dad now.


it's for some shitty movie role. check out for a much more accurate and snarky summary than i can provide, because i am lazy.

also, we've been out of toilet paper for two days at my apartment. i've come home well past 2 am both nights... apparently my roommate has no biological functions which require it. or he's been using the toilet scrubber to wipe. NEITHER OF THOSE SCENARIOS ARE PLEASANT TO CONSIDER.

i will try to remember to bring some home tonight.

random thoughts from today, 06/25/08

'oh the kitchen light is on. did i leave them on? oh. no. my roommate is back.' >slowly pulls up underwear before walking to the bathroom<

'blowing my nose shouldn't take this much effort.'

'i should write a sketch about film connosseuirs debating the merits of certain films as pinnacles of the genre, and then have them start listing the merits of the more well known genocides and ethnic cleansings were the best of their genre.'
>dibs on that, axford/gardner/oscar<

'i guess i am in that period before a personal performing breakthrough, where nothing makes sense and everything is teh suckness. or have i made it past that without even noticing... no, probably not.'

'hmmmmmmmm should i really ask someone out? no. probably not.'

'oh god chocolate and caramel and pretzels is the best ever omg there's even salt on top HOLY SHIT HOW AM I JUST FINDING OUT ABOUT THIS NOW!?'

'my friends are awesome'
