Mew (not my pokemons)

So it turns out the singer from Mew is a boy, not a girl. I always assumed it was a girl.

Mew - I Am Wry? No

Diddy Wah Diddy

My brother introduced me to the fabulous world of Bo Diddley a while ago. Here are some of his songs:
•The Greatest Lover in the World
•Hey Bo Diddley
•500% More Man
•Diddley Daddy
•Bo Diddley
•Bo Diddley 1969
and yes, "Bo Diddley" and "Bo Diddley 1969" are in fact two very different songs.
In hearing his song titles and gallant voice I couldn't help but to think Bo really was the most handsome man in the world.

Yes. Yes he is. Also you should listen to "Deed and Deed I Do."

Reading (not the FC)

Reading novels has always been kind of a hard thing for me to do. Even in junior high and high school when you were given time in class to read books, I never finished one. Not from 8th grade to high school graduation. Looking back I'm a little astonished, quite embarrassed, and totally regretful. But I did read several assigned books 1/2 or 3/4 through, just never finishing them. Maybe that has a correlation with my bad grades during that era. I did read plenty of skate magazines though. So if you ever want to know what Jim Greco thinks about contemporary punk rock or how to clean dirty griptape just let know--I'm full of practical information like that.

As a college student I still haven't read too much, maybe it's because when I try to read a novel I'll have to stop after like 10 minutes because I feel guilty. Maybe I should be doing something noble like reading my textbooks or scriptures or something. You know, if I'm going to be reading it should only be for scholastic or spiritual gain. Anyway, this summer has given me a little extra time to read and I've I've sort of taken advantage of it. Chris Crozbeighyee once said he wanted more than just a Harry Potter book reader, and so do I. So I've read one book lately. Wow, I feel so smart. I read The Kite Runner. I won't go into a detailed analysis, but in short I'll say that of the limited number of books that I've read, this has been one of the better ones. Go read it, it has my endorsement.

Hopefully this week I'll finish the Catcher in the Rye. I love Holden's goddam sexy vocabulary. Reading is grand! I hope that I'll replace some of my richly productive TV watching time with reading.

It is better to be a cool dead rock star than to be David Lee Roth.

My brother is in Europe. I be jealous.

Today me and Dane both had interviews with a member of our bishopric. He told us separately that we needed to do push-ups.

"But I do do push-ups!!" was what I snapped back at him after he repeated the council.

What I learned is that I need to eat more protein.
