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.




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?
