It's cool if you want to Fish.

I'LL TAKE ALL YOU BIT#$ES ON!


(At the risk of hurting feelings and making me look like an ass [too late?] I'd like to say that love Fish and Gator and, for the most part, don't think they'er my bit**es.)

Where is this heaven-sent birthday list? It must have been another one of those really important things I zoned out on!

Hey I've got nothing going on tonight. Anyone wanna hang out on the blog?

9:09 PM

 
Blogger Matt said...

so down to hang out on the blog

So then Matty, whaddya say we boost this post into 2006's Most Commented status right here right now?

I can stay till 10pm then perhaps I can hang out on Rachael's computer, as mine dosn't have internet.

alright, let's do it. i digressed for a minute. but i am in it for the long run...i just realized michael did not take home his beer from last night.

9:55 PM

 
Blogger Gator said...

Mm. Pass one over wouldja, homey? So detail your summer plans for me from start to finish. And I don't want to just hear about work. What are you going to dooooo?

9:59 PM

 
Blogger Matt said...

well, a question like that needs multiple responses. so i shall detail it in multiple comments.

10:00 PM

 
Blogger Gator said...

Yeah! Blog slumber party!

10:02 PM

 
Blogger Matt said...

I plan to put out a solo ep and play gigs. I am actually playing a 30 min opening set here in alameda june 9. $5. I am also playing drums for a punk band and we're gonna be playing a mess of shows at some pretty decent venues and hopefully getting some kind of recording out. so a lot to look forward on the music front.

10:04 PM

 
Blogger Matt said...

i'm also gonna be seeing a mess of great shows. Beck, Radiohead, Danielson, Bloc Party w/ Broken Social Scene, Walkmen...etc.

10:06 PM

 
Blogger Gator said...

So how the h-e-l-l does someone score tickets to the Radiohead tour? I coulda sworn you had to volunteer units of blood for those. Sold out in ten seconds or something.

10:07 PM

 
Blogger Matt said...

quick digression, but in order to make this seem more social, check out these prints my london roommate's dad does. he's got some really awesome stuff on there http://www.jamesclaussen.com/

10:08 PM

 
Blogger Matt said...

my friend greg scored 4. michael, greg, my girl and i all are in...and i might be getting more tickets. but hey, to make you more jealous, i can give you their copenhagen show from the 6th and you can hear how absolutely amazing they are in concert.

10:10 PM

 
Blogger Gator said...

If I slobbered over Radiohead I might be jealous. As is suck an egg.

So now I'm bored with your summer plans.

Give me five websites you visit on a daily basis. Or if you're healthier than me, go with weekly visits. And for diversity sake and on account of Bro's still pretty young, let's keep 'em non-pornographic.

Oh and something I'm not already aware/sick of, please. Pitchfork is dull, mmkay?

I don't know why I brought this up. I really have to confess now that I visit 35 websites and read 16 RSS feeds daily. 'Cept talking to Annie it's probably my favorite hour after school. There's a very easy and important argument to make that this is too. much. time. (and in truth, I'm looking forward to disconnecting a lot this summer) but I love knowing things. And knowing how to do things.

My indispensable five after the jump.

10:20 PM

 
Blogger Matt said...

these are sights i'm more ashamed of. but hey, it's like the 25th post now, nobody is reading this still.

1.www.bestweekever.tv
2.www.geekologie.com
3. you got me hooked on www.thesuperficial.com
because of that i also go to

This is hilarious. I decided to take a brief study break and come check out the ol' blog - only to see two of my favorite people pounding away at the keys (27 comments as of when I started typing this comment). This is pretty fun there boys. Good to hear about your summer plans there matty boy. I can't believe you guys check that many websites a day. I try to read this site, Slate, a couple websites about California politics (the best one is www.newwestnotes.com - it's fricking amazing) - and all of that keeps me busy and away from things I should be doing. Good to hear you guys are keeping the web alive. In a few days I am going to check back on this site and look up a few of both of your suggestions. Good times.

10:27 PM

 
Blogger Matt said...

quick digression, but i am a bit down that you have yet to appologize for not acknowledging my bday. i mean, gator, dead fish have feelings too.

10:27 PM

 
Blogger Gator said...

Heh. That Tyler Durden site is kind of fun. There's just a vast market for anti-tabloid stuff right now. Truly, a great era.

Geekologie strikes me like a gizmodo.com, a site I had to purge because I just wasn't learning much of anything interesting.

10:28 PM

 
Blogger Matt said...

aye, you definitely gave me the superficial link. i'm leaving it at that...

10:28 PM

 
Blogger Gator said...

The whole bday thing. Interesting comment Spiff made ... like there's a list of some sort just floating out there the taking.

The dates I've got go back since I started working at DC and started bumming dates off people. After I become director I acted like it was part of the job to share their DOB. That was easier. Because your employment was a bit ... i dunno ... sporadic I never got yours. Go cry in the corner.

So speaking of MySpace: who's got the best MySpace page out of those on the sidebar? (And by "best" I mean "least worst." And leave yourself out of the discussion.)

10:37 PM

if there is one positive thing about all this, it's that it causes me to constantly change the music on my itunes. letting my audioscrobbler get some diversity.

10:38 PM

 
Blogger Gator said...

I'm kind of taken with Flip's right now. I mean, granted, he's got a song set to auto-load, which is just about the most annoying thing anyone has ever done to me shorting of killing my mom on mother's day.

But ... but ... black text?!?!?! on a grey background?!!? It's almost as if the text and background .... CONTRAST!!!!

I salute you, Flipper.

10:39 PM

 
Blogger Shannon said...

Alright, thats my cue. I have around three sites I check each day and I know that none of them will be of any interest to either of you so....
I do love feeling like we are hanging out though! Talk to you later.

So you've visited Cute Overload before? You've been an Overloader?

10:39 PM

Er. I think I remember Miguelito mentioning the possibility back in the day, but only after they got married, I thought he said.

10:43 PM

10:44 PM

well, they got one. you know how those kids are, all impulsive and whatnot.

10:45 PM

 
Blogger Gator said...

Oh Corker ... such a punk ... and hey, props for sticking with Juno despite the vaaaast availability of better alternatives. How long have you had that one? Seriously. Since you first started DC, right? That was in ... 96? So that's almost a decade?!?!?

10:46 PM

 
Blogger Matt said...

pshh. snakes on a plane will never get old. at least that trailer won't. i feel smarter each time i watch it.

10:46 PM

 
Blogger Gator said...

Hey, as long as we're dumping pop culture confessionals out on the table. Here's my like fourth or fifth for the night:

I watch a lot of tv.

I know I know. But it's always in the service of multi-tasking. Some background noise while I Photoshop. No excuse, really, but teevee is so good right now. Do you watch? Have you heard?

10:47 PM

 
Blogger Matt said...

hahaha, gator, you're an e-thug. eh, e-bully.

10:47 PM

 
Blogger Shannon said...

Show my commited and loyal side. I am a true friend. And, just for the record, they have really amped up their game.
JUNO!JUNO!JUNO! I say it loud and proud!

10:47 PM

Seriously, Shannon. How long?

10:48 PM

 
Blogger Matt said...

because of my ever changing work schedule i can't dedicate my life to shows easily. i know there's some with decent writing out there...i read all about them on celeb gossip sites, ya know. but i am an adult swim addict. robot chicken, aqua teen hunger force, harvey birdman, sealab 2021, family guy...saved by the bell.

especially robot chicken though. i got season one the other day and never have i been so entertained.

10:49 PM

 
Blogger Shannon said...

Not since 96 thank you very much. I got it in 99. So yes, its been around 7-8 years. I'm to lazy to switch. Its seems like it would be such a hassle.
Ok, that your cue to go all commercial on me and tell me how easy it really is.

10:51 PM

 
Blogger Gator said...

Yikes. Okay. Dropping the teevee discussion. Didn't realize we were still so heavy into animation.

And who watches teevee on the network's schedule, anyway? Judging from your terabyte-sized music stash, you know how BitTorrent works.

10:51 PM

 
Blogger Matt said...

always looking for series dvd suggestions though...i think it's the inner control freak that stops me from watching tv when the show tells me to. if i had tivo my social life would be as lacking as the homework i turned in this semester.

10:52 PM

 
Blogger Matt said...

i used to download shows on my pc. i had a killer video card that had a built tv tuner also and tivo-like functions. the 60 gigs of music are killing my harddrive and i have been too lazy to really work on my external.

10:54 PM

 
Blogger Gator said...

Whatev. There almost isn't any point to recommending something good to someone of your head-in-the-sand levels, but Veronica Mars is about the most fun I've had with a television all year. Season 1 out right now.

And so.

You can now choose to answer either/both of these:

1) A favorite experience at camp last summer.
2) A favorite counselor from camp last summer.

Why's for both.

10:55 PM

 
Blogger Shannon said...

OOOH questions! Can I play!?

10:56 PM

*sigh* It's a free blog I guess.

(But seriously, say anything bad about me OR Sushi and I delete your account.)

10:58 PM

 
Blogger Gator said...

I've got a fav. My heels pounding down the hill several dozen feet behind Daff's. Frodo's car wheeling a U-turn in a parking lot across the street. Everyone trying to make it to the 76 station first in one of my favorite Ditch games on record.

Retching into the grass while Tues. held my hair back was also kind of fun. But in a different way.

10:59 PM

 
Blogger Shannon said...

Gator was my favorite. Thats not a kiss butt answer either. I just loved working with him and seeing him do his job.

10:59 PM

 
Blogger Shannon said...

Well, there is also that one counselor Scout. He is in my top 4.

11:01 PM

Blogger Fisher-man said...

My question - Favorite beer?

11:01 PM

 
Blogger Shannon said...

Guinness!!!!!

11:01 PM

 
Blogger Shannon said...

And for the summer ....Corona!!

11:02 PM

 
Blogger Fisher-man said...

My answer:

I like black and tan when I'm at a bar, or a hef with a meal. At home I like bass and red stripe.

11:02 PM

 
Blogger Fisher-man said...

Sushi... we all know - you can answer too.

11:03 PM

 
Blogger Gator said...

Had a Corona tonight. Fun but in a soda-ish way. Reallllly carbonated.

11:03 PM

 
Blogger Gator said...

Better question for Sushi:

Beer you haven't tried?

11:03 PM

 
Blogger Shannon said...

Hmmm...interesting. Well balanced choices,with a hint of sophistication.

11:03 PM

 
Blogger Matt said...

experience: photo scavenger hunt, because fish's driving allowed me to have yet another near-death experience i walked away from.

counselor: umm, tough one. gotta say that kicken it with daff was always a good time and anybody who calls me from vegas telling me i need to drive down or catch the next flight asap is fav. counselor material for sure.

11:04 PM

 
Blogger Shannon said...

mmmm,beer sounds good right now.

11:04 PM

 
Blogger Gator said...

Lately I've been brewing on the best idea for camp.

11:06 PM

 
Blogger Gator said...

If I was a staff counselor I would definitely make this happen.

Since none of you are coming back, though, it feels kinda lame to tease.

11:07 PM

 
Blogger Matt said...

haha, i have a list of 50 some odd beers that i tried in london that i like to glance at from time to time. there's something about enjoying a guinness at the factory or a moroccan beer in morocco that just can't be beat. red stripe and pilsner urquell are always favs of mine. but nothing beats a forty of mickey's.

The trip to the Loofbourrows cabin was my favorite. Besides the dog of course, and seeing Spidey vomit into the lake while Ross's mom gagged. That was memorable.

11:07 PM

 
Blogger Matt said...

and what is this idea?

11:08 PM

 
Blogger Fisher-man said...

Corona is lame unless you have tons of lime, and even then I'd rather have a margherita. Best Mexican beer is Dox Equis Amber fo sho' - it kiiillllls the competition. Runner up is Negra Modela.

11:08 PM

 
Blogger Matt said...

i take back my favorite moment. seeing spidey trashed on no more contract night made my summer.

11:09 PM

 
Blogger Shannon said...

Has anyone tried Saporo?

11:09 PM

 
Blogger Fisher-man said...

Yuck.

11:10 PM

 
Blogger Matt said...

i like negra modela just because it has that fancy gold foil on top.

11:10 PM

 
Blogger Shannon said...

Spidey really makes memories doesn't he?

11:10 PM

 
Blogger Fisher-man said...

It's even bad with sake. Sapporro is Japan's bud-light.

11:11 PM

 
Blogger Shannon said...

I haven't actually had Saporo. You all were throwing out names, and I wanted to join in.
Fish, how did the Thesis come out?

11:12 PM

 
Blogger Matt said...

sapporo is a favorite of mike and i's. especially sapporo reserve. nothing says awesomeness like that can does. it's also a key ingredient to the legitimate sake bomb.

11:12 PM

 
Blogger Shannon said...

Uh, and I meant to spell it the way I did. S-a-p-o-r-o.

11:13 PM

 
Blogger Matt said...

do you honestly feel this way fish? btw, the best part of european drinking is that there really is no "bud-lite" there. for the most part, even their cheap beer is great. like stella artois, which is the cheapest in stores there and here is regarded as being a decent choice. the brits like to call it "wife beater" and say only chavs drink it.

11:14 PM

I sort of feel like we are all in the DC office, hanging out on the stinky green couch, covered in feathers from those pillows. AAHH!

(sorry, i'm related to michael).

Speaking of spelling. Has anyone seen Akeelah and the Bee? Is it worth it?

11:17 PM

 
Blogger Matt said...

i hope bro signs on at some point and gets really excited at seeing 100+ comments in response to his belated birthday wish and then realizes it's mindless banter about daily websites and beer.

11:17 PM

 
Blogger Shannon said...

Uh..Gator, are you playing ditch and did't tell anyone?

11:19 PM

 
Blogger Fisher-man said...

Seriously - I don't like Sapporro. I am not much of a fan of lighter style beers (the one key exception being Pislner Urquell), and Sapporro strikes me in the same way. I too have had it with sake bombs, and it's the only time I will ever have it. Other than that I stay away.

11:20 PM

 
Blogger Shannon said...

hello...anyone? Is this a prank? Great. Now I am talking to myself. So Shannon, you are looking mighty fine today.
Well thank you ever so much self.

11:21 PM

 
Blogger Fisher-man said...

I think Stella Artois is good; another good dinner type of beer cause it's not too filling but has a good taste. That's funny it's not quite so highly regarded on the other side of the pond.

The thesis is coming....slowly.... but it is coming. It is all I do - well, that and get distracted by the blog and stuff.

Do you think that anyone is going to take the time to read through this whole post?

Oh Fish - if there's anything I've learned reading this, it's that there's a very real common trait shared by my groomsmen and myself: we're all dicks. Simply put: nice people aren't nearly as funny.

That and digressions are way more fun than staying on topic.

i have something to confess....i was completely bored and came to the blog and saw 134 comments and thought to myself, "well, if they are good, i will keep reading....seeing that this next hour i am bored out of my mind waiting for this stupid thing to start." so i went for it, yes, i have no life, it honestly felt like i was listening to one of your conversations and i missed that.

and by the way, spidey you owe me a thank you because when you were trashed allowed you to put your arm around me in the car eventhough it was super awkward and i was nice to you.....and that was a funny night. i do beleive he was drunk after 1 sip of his corona....i have the picture and it is legendary.
