SOME THINGS ARE SO ...ADDICTING

They creep back up, you know they probably taste better than ever, and you're tapping your veins wondering how you'll be able to contain yourself. That's addiction.

I have an addictive personality, but I know the only way to get out of trouble is to keep busy. I think that explains a lot.

One of my last assignments at the magazine I used to work at was covering Crash Kings. Their EPK sucked, but I couldn't care less since their song "Mountain Man" is so fucking UNGH (that's the embodiment of nasty, dirty, blues-y, fat, etc.) that I couldn't stop listening to this track until my ears began to go whom-whom-whom-whom-whom.



Blasting it again so that my co-workers can be all, like, "HEY THAT'S A COOL SONG... IS THAT KRIS ALLEN?" or something stupid like that.

One time I saw them open up for Rooney and I genuinely felt embarrassed for Rooney. Talk about being upstaged.

CLAVINET! AND YOU THOUGHT ONLY BLIND BLACK GUYS USED CLAVS.

Re: Addiction

It was just a couple weeks ago that I realized how much money I was spending on coffee each month. Now THAT'S embarrassing. So last week I switched it up by buying a variety of teas.


There are so many tastes! It's like a rainbow just exploding in my mouth! Yes! I said that! And apparently much healthier for you than coffee.

You're welcome.

New Maroon5 album came out. I'm considering seeing them on their stops at the Greek in a couple weeks, depending on schedule or whatever. They're the kind of pop band that gets the job done. I first saw them before they ex-plo-ded in the early '00s and everyone treated them like shit at their set. It was kind of sad. I liked them because they were unapologetically a pop-rock band with a very specific agenda, and I still do for the very same reason. Who's laughing now? Anyway, their music reminds me of sluts. The last time they had an album out, it turned every female I knew into a slut. It was pretty awesome. That year was so full of sluts. AN-Y-WAY, don't know if I want to hear it. Weird stuff associated to that band.

Man, today's blog post sucked so bad. Fuck. Eh, I'll try again tomorrow.

Tea? I talked about tea? Am I fucking serious?
