I am a Los Angeles-based twentysomething. I have a profession, and I have a secret life in music, and this blog isn't about any of that. I like Blogger because I can't read what you're thinking.

FIRST IT WAS MJ, NOW IT'S JOHN HUGHES
I can already hear it now: "Yeah, but do you have the first pressed DVDs? YOU KNOW, THE ONES WITHOUT SPECIAL FEATURES?"
Way, way, wayyy too many people don't reserve their grief; it's as if, to some sick extent, they only like to acknowledge their fandom for someone prominent once they die. RESERVE YOUR GRIEF, MAN.
Famous People Whose Deaths I'll Genuinely Be Sad Over:
- David Lynch
- Ben Folds
- Verdine White
- Chris Matthews
- Herbie Hancock
- Rufus Wainwright
- Michael Jordan
- KNBC's Chuck Henry

THE SISTER: Hugo, is "donuts" spelled correctly?Just minutes later, she doubled-down.
HUGO: Wait, WTF?
THE SISTER: Donuts sounds like it should be pronounced, "Do Nuts," like a verb.
THE SISTER: After all, it's really a d-o-u-g-h-n-u-t. Not a do-nut.
THE SISTER: Look at that homeless man on the freeway off-ramp. He's holding a sign.In that brain that loves E! way too much is a profoundly profoundish profounder.
THE SISTER: If he needs money, how'd he get the huge sharpie?
