@j-i-a "there's nothing honest that doesn't make sense in context" is such a solid statement.
i recall discovering this phenomenon (the weight-on-a-string, power-of-the-unconscious thing) when i was kid and feeling like a superhero.
i just tried it again, meditating on the question, "is it getting better, or is it getting worse?" (clockwise for better, ccw for worse) i got a very definitive answer: my subconscious mind is an asshole.
@Megasus oooooohhhhhh. my bad, but that's good: 2 drood/collins mash ups are better than 1.
The D Case is silly but i liked it, fwiw.
@Megasus BLESS YOU -- i have been sitting here trying to remember the name of that book, and even google-supplementing did not help. you were close -- it's called The D. Case:

@Olivia2.0 he's the reason i spent the past week binge watching misfits. simon can get it.
if they didn't screen test NCW with mud and grime during the casting process, they really lucked out. i don't know that anyone on screen has ever looked so good in so much filth (nb i don't particularly fetishize hygiene or dirt, he's just fiiiine).
In 1993 Leonard Cohen told an audience of fans in Atlanta that me and my then-boyfriend were "a glowing and exemplary couple." Still in the top 5, days-of-my-life-wise. We were 18.
(there's audio of the patter and a photo of the three of us, and those are top 5s, too, things-that-exist-wise)
OH THE LOVE. the statler brothers was my first concert (i am under 40). f'reals.
@lisma YES. I am really confused by this post's anti-Sabra stance. Ever since Trader Joe's started carrying Fage, the only reason I need to go elsewhere for snack foods is their lack of Sabra. Every time I try another hummus I hope it will be as good as Sabra and it never is. I tried the new TJ's hummus that comes in the Sabra-like discus, and it just made me sad.
