Odds and Ends

Just a wee li'l entry to catch up on a lot of loose threads.

First, I am obsessed with the song "Hey Ya" by OutKast. Which Overg will probably never forgive me for, but I'm okay with that. The song is THAT good. I even sing it to my pets.

Here is a funny conversation I had with Roo yesterday:

Erikaxoxo: Avril Lavigne has her playlist up on itunes
Erikaxoxo: it's funny what she says about some of the songs:
HWG: does it include David BOOie?
Erikaxoxo: hee. no. I thought the same thing.
Erikaxoxo: Alanis Morissette's "Ironic" is on her list and she talks about how great it is "lyrically"
Erikaxoxo: um, it's a good song, but not like amazing
Erikaxoxo: and Nirvana's "Rape Me": it's a "great song to rock out to and get drunk and mosh to"
Erikaxoxo: mmmmmmk
Erikaxoxo: Avril = badass!
HWG: Avril = Trying too hard
Erikaxoxo: heh
HWG: Ironic is a crappy song lyrically, since most of the lyrics are not about irony
Erikaxoxo: exactly
HWG: *hits Alanis with a dictionary*
Erikaxoxo: I mean, it's a fun song...good to sing along with
Erikaxoxo: but not lyrically!
HWG: doncha think?
HWG: onyerweddiiiiiingday
Erikaxoxo: whenyou'vealreadypaaid
HWG: I just had this exchange with the QA manager
     BMCompanyName: So, let me get this straight; you want me to test it so that I can write up the crash you found, so that you don't have to.
     HWG: well that's the *end* result, yes
     BMCompanyName: lol
HWG: I am all about making life easier for me
Erikaxoxo: hee

Have you been watching the Westminster Kennel Club dog show on USA? I hope you have! Coco the Nawfuck Terrier one the God Loves a Terrier group yet again, and my beloved Les the Pekingese won the Toy group. Now it will be a battle royale between those two and Josh, the big black Newfoundland.

To illustrate my obsession with "Hey Ya" here is a bit of a conversation I had with Rappy this morning (Crold is the CRanky and OLD woman she works with)(TM Me):

raptorgirl: ok, now crold is putting words that I never said in my mouth
HWG: yeah, this could get dicey
HWG: HeyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyCrollllllllllllllllld
raptorgirl: dude! stop that!
raptorgirl: I *LIKE* that song!
HWG: hahahahahaha
HWG: what's happening with Uzi?
raptorgirl: nothing
HWG: alrightalrightalrightalrightalrightalrightalrightalrightalrightalrightalrightalright
HWG: last night I was singing this song to the pets
HWG: "I ... I'm ... I'm just being OTIS."
raptorgirl: haha
raptorgirl: you're batshit crazy. You know this, right?

Outkast blows. And their video is a total rip off of Nirvana and/or Weezer.

Outkast blows? Dude. What is WRONG with you?

Posted by: Roo at February 10, 2004 09:57 PM

Yeah, no kidding Overg. Even I like Outkast. That double CD is brilliant.

Oddly enough, I find myself agreeing with Overg on this. I did like a few songs on Stankonia, especially Ms. Jackson, but the stuff I've heard from their latest is just meh. Personally, I think they're trying to damn hard to be then next Parliament. And THAT .. will NEVER happen.
