Prepare to have you mind blown...
On my drive home from work last night, I stumbled upon Led Zeppelin’s Kashmir, and I spent the entire song trying to figure out why the song sounded so familiar. I’ve heard it before, but it was something else… then it hit me. Kasmir = 007 Goldeneye’s menu music. Don’t believe me? Let’s have a listen! Led Zeppelin, Kashmir - YouTube link 007 Goldeneye menu...

caitlinhill: No. No. You don’t need to do this. I HATE when people do this on purpose. It’s one of the most passive-aggressive, self-absorbed acts one can do. There was this one girl in “our group” in high school who decided that she would not return to school the following term and not tell any of her friends (some of which she had gone through primary school with) just to see if anybody...

Ever have one of those nights where you just sit there, not able to concentrate on anything? You can’t listen to music because it just annoys you, you can’t eat, you can’t find anyone to talk to, you don’t feel like watching any TV and none of the movies you find seem worth it. Your head hurts too much to read but you’re too bored to go to sleep. So you just sit...
You know what else is pure bs? I’ve been waiting 2.5 years to have a real conversation with someone, so obviously I’m extremely patient about it. To a ridiculous, probably stupid, degree in fact. It’s not a conversation I will have on the phone. It’s not one I will have over email, a letter, or text - anything like that. It’s going to be in person. It has to be. And I...
I’ve spent my whole life trying to make things “fair” for my friends. I really wish a few of them would do the same, just once. Apologizing is nice, it really is. It helps. But for once, just do something about it. My least favorite characteristic of humanity is “looking out for yourself.” I hate it. I don’t really care if it makes you feel awkward, or you...
I want one! - Fujifilm FinePix X100 →
12.3 megapixels, hybrid viewfinder which toggles between optical and electronic, and man is it packed into a gorgeous body. Will debut “early 20100.” Sigh, too bad it will probably be well out of my price range.

I hate fake fans
I say this a lot. I really, really hate fake fans though. They steal joy away from those who have earned it. They dilute great moments. It just sucks. To better illustrate my point, let me use an example of a real fan: Let’s call him Jim. Jim is clearly a real fan. And he’s not feeling too great right now. He’s all alone, and very down because his team is going to lose game 1....

ISC Corporate Challange Cycling Time Trial Results →
Our team came in 3rd in our division. I’m not thrilled with my time, but given the weather and the fact that this was my first race, I think I did alright.
Dear lord, I can’t stand the haters. And I really can’t stand it when people who are my friends threaten to “delete me” from facebook for commenting about sports. If you’re friends with me, you know how I am. If you can’t handle it, go the hell away. Jesus, do you have any idea how annoying that is? Come on. I fill up your homepage with too many sports post?...
The Importance of Charity on 9/11
Tomorrow is the 9th anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks. The entire country was affected in some way, but those who are my age experienced the events of that day at such a crucial point in our lives that it was bound to make an impact on how we saw the world. Being a freshman in high school, I remember spending almost the whole day watching the news, discussing what was going on...
I can’t help but feel left out. You never joined my fantasy football leagues. I asked you every year - which ok is like twice but still. You never went to John Mayer concerts with me, which is probably the biggest thing we shared. Shit maybe you’ve spent your entire time knowing me avoiding me and I’m too dumb to notice it. I don’t know anything anymore

I wasn’t going to post this because I want to use it to surprise a few people BUT… it’s too cool not to share. And it’s so easy too. Be sure to take advantage!
I get the feeling that my nightly talks with a friend won’t be happening nightly anymore. School does that I guess. I wouldn’t know, I almost never did homework, and when I did, I was always talking online at the same time. But, suffice to say, I don’t think they will be happening as frequently. Which sucks. It’s funny how much a small routine like that can mean to you,...
I really hope the report of Yogi Ferrell visiting IU tomorrow is real. And I hope he commits tomorrow. Both are unlikely, but man, I could use that right now.
