There was a woman on The Colbert Report on Wednesday, Caitlin Flanagan, promoting a book against feminism. Since she was opposed to feminism and pre sandwich-and-baby-making, I have no moral reservations at all saying she was an unappealing woman, with ridiculous hair. The interview was dryly unconfrontational, but frat boys in the audience whooped it up.

Meanwhile- I read a story on Yahoo news about Bush trying to lower gas prices by urging environmental regulations and stopping putting things in the oil reserve. What awful ideas. He's also cutting tax breaks to oil companies and urging larger tax breaks for hybrid owners, which is decent, but in a word: SINKINGSHIPSINKINGSHIPSINKINGSHIPSINKINGSHIPSINKINGSHIP. John Kerry apparently talked reducing the influx of oil to the surplus in his election campaign. Bush denounced it then as playing politics. SINKINGSHIPSINKINGSHIP.

No one's going to care about this at all, it's just nerdy thought-documentation for my own sake. After I posted that list of the best albums of last year, pretty much immediately, I declared Why- Elephant Eyelash my favorite. I don't know- That might actually be what I say on the list. But what I hadn't heard at that point was the Akron/Family Angels Of Light split, which I've listened to so much since then. Anyway- That should displace Clap Your Hands Say Yeah's spot, even though I like them. It should just be in the second fifth. And, towards the bottom of the list, there's a Numbers record I hadn't heard at the time of my list-making, just as a way to give credit for a good live show. I've heard, it's not too good, displace it entirely. For an even twenty-five.

God, that's some OCD shit. Or, it would be if I hadn't been thinking it for awhile, and am just writing it down now so I can stop thinking it, as it'll be documented.

In other news, I'm pretty into apples.
So I have finally read the final draft that my faculty wrote about me and my work last quarter. It's pretty awful, harsh in that way where it's not necessarily trying to be harsh, but is trying to talk about something not really understood in a way where there's a lot of condescension that's somewhat unavoidable, but even that's tainted with an active dislike. But fuck it, I can't be bothered, I'm moving on, got this class, got a good thing going. So that professor's now an enemy, so be it. I have enemies, that's how I do: I'm kind of unlikable. She's not my nemesis, just one of many in my rogue's gallery.

But now I'm in this animation class and I've got some books to read and I'm working on a thing I'm really excited about. It might be good enough to redeem Evergreen a bit.
