It was a fairly mild day today - but I hear we are in for more snow. Yay for Michigan weather!



While listening to the NPR version of that old Groucho Marx show You bet your life I heard the Wisconsin poet Laureate recite a poem she had written about Danny Glover. She commented "how in the heck do you write a poem about Danny Glover?"
That aside, she read the poem - and it was really quite touching. When she read it to Danny Glover ( Who I think was getting an award or something like that) - she just expected to get a nice polite handshake from him when she finished and handed him the poem. To her surprise, she turned to find him in tears -

Some poet laureates can really suck - but I found her works quite interesting. Hopefully they will update http://www.notmuch.com/ website.



The lovely diluendo brought this to my attention - a rather feeble and unfortunate attempt at humor http://www.koarecords.com/details_asian.jpg

While Watching the SNL "news" they mentioned the Details feature and how the reader was to guess "was the person Asian or gay?" - to which the Jimmy Falon said something like "The insult was, they used a picture of Angelica Houston"

I was looking for a funny quiz I found that asked you to tell the difference between visualkei stars and Japanese women, but I can't seem to find it at the moment.. this site looks interesting though http://www.alllooksame.com/



Woohoo - I can't believe it, yesterday I actually played tag w/the postal service and won! Despite missing the mail delivery in the afternoon - I picked it up at the post office.

The DVD IS GREATTTTTT!!!!!!! FATE! LIVE YAY
The Smile making clips... I love them -
It was also great that the DVD starts out w/a 8/2001 performance of Spirit Dream Inside - to which Leigh comes into the room and claps "all right!!!!!!" Leigh loves Spirit Dreams inside - ^-^...



I've been watching the 4/3 performance of PopJam HnJ/Revelation - such a dramatic intro!
*hands Hyde a throat lozenge*

I can't help but noticed that hyde's voice has sounded more and more coarse lately, even on the albums. I couldn't recall any songs in REAL that were coarse, but their next single Spirit Dreams Inside, his voice already sounded a bit coarse. While Roentgen is nowhere near a rock album, 666 came back with the coarse hyde voice in a number of songs, and SMILE as well. But I do like it because it makes it sound more rock.

He smokes too much T_T and should take care of his voice.

There is this insert picture in Roentgen of a person's upper body in x-ray with a big thing of black near one of the lungs. Every time I see that I was hoping it wasn't hyde's lungs they were showing. It looks like part of the lungs were eaten away by the tar from the ciggs.
