I'm upset about this #1 on IMDb nonsense. Every summer now it seems like a movies overtaking the money record, but #1 on IMDb being Godfather/Shawshank make a lot more sense.

Hmm, nah. I like fruit better. Blueberry.
Pre-OS X Macs were just shithouse. OS X is damn good and slays Vista, so I'd choose it if that's the only choice I had (can't be arsed figuring out the deal with Linux), but I'm much more comfortable with XP, so if I can possibly go with that when I get a laptop, I will.

I have a bit too much of a sweet tooth and love chocolate. Blueberry and chocolate ...?

Surrender sounds much better too. It's mostly Red Light & Surrender I was concerned with, and they sound good to me
"Surrender" and "40" sound a hell of a lot better. The remasters really helped October, I think. I love actually being able to hear the beginning of "Tomorrow" now.

I thought the exact same thing, with the exact same retraction.

I can't help but think every time I act from now on, I'm going to incorporate some little thing from that performance into it.

The bass was a little distorted at the beginning of "40" but the rest sounded great. Man those last three tracks ended up sounding a lot better, which is great for me since they're my favorites on the album

That bothers me, too, but it's a statistical thing. Sure, the voting system is weighted, but with as few votes as it has, it's going to be #1 for a bit.

It'll even out over time. There Will Be Blood and No Country for Old Men both cracked the Top 40 for a short time and have settled markedly lower, I believe.

So this is why Larry hates the Passengers era!

I love the last three as well. Got to get around to remastered War here soon.

I'm surprised too, I wouldn't take a kid to see that movie. Although oddly enough, as much as it scared me, I still want to go see it again.

I'm scarily good at imitating that voice and the tongue thing. It's great fun to go around church creeping people out by doing it.
Well I'm certainly glad I don't go to that church.

So I think Ive finally (with ashleys help) discovered why I dont like U2... for 2 simple reasons.

1) I care wayyyy too much about what people think of me. Ex. I change my myspace song to lets say... Desire all my friends are like Brittany whos U2 and why are you listening to them? Are you ok?

2) I dont like Bonos voice. Its scratchy.

I'm not sure what version the ones I used had. We had them all through school but now it just escapes me. I was used to those so figuring out Windows was a little bit of work but not too much. I was lucky enough to find my laptop with XP. That's the way to go.

Blueberry and Chocolate? SuperfuckingWin. You must conduct an experiment!
