REM's Leaving New York

Miss Mita points out that the new REM video, Leaving New York, can be found here. Seriously, the more I hear the song, the more I really like it. The video is shot quite beautifully, and I'm not just saying that because Michael Stipe is all reflective and in white with his beautiful blue eyes for much of the video. Sigh. I'd like to remind everyone that I get to see them LIVE on October 2, which is only 11 days away. Then their album come out on October 5, which is two weeks away. Then I get to see REM live AGAIN on October 27. October is SUCH a good month.

Do you ever get behind a driver - a bad one - and you are swearing and whatnot at them. Calling the idiot every name in the book. And then see that they have a bumper sticker that you agree with? Doesn't that make you irritated. Like, "why do they agree with me" or "why are they funny when they can't drive?" Or is that just me?

Finally, I have to do an intro lesson concerning the melodramatic drama queen otherwise known as Stephanie If you did not email me recently concerning the fact that I'm "psychotic" - twice in the last three weeks, then you can just skip this. I really hope that the average person with the IQ of a fucking rabbit doesn't think that I truly am going to stalk Jody Gerut, Billy the piano player, John Heffron, Ken Jennings, REM, or "the other one" (and to be honest, I'm not sure who "the other one" even is, though I probably have mentioned others.) Normally, I'd add "temping as that might be..." but I'm scared that you'll call the police on me. And no, I had no plans "to get the radio guys fired" (huh?? Where did that even COME from?) And no, I don't hate the Yankees or Baltimore to the extent that "the cities have to fear me as much as they do the terrorists." And yes, I swear, but I'm also 28. It's nothing that your "innocent" kids haven't heard anyway. I've seen a hell of a lot worse than what I've put on this site before. And yes, I jump from topics without transactions (I think you meant transitions) -- haven't I mentioned that before? What, are you stealing my OWN lines to criticize me? And I'm not going to respond to your bullet point list of reasons that Stephanie should die (a catchy subject line, by the way, lest I thought it was just spam) so don't hold your breath. But the poetic turn of phrase "closed-minded Hitler-eque prejudices" I appreciate, and in fact, plan to use the "esque" on a brief that I'm writing right now, though more along the lines of George Carlin-esque. That perfectly encompasses something I was trying to find. So you have inadvertently helped me, and I sincerely appreciate it.

As background for anyone else still reading (other than the person this is directed to, who obviously reads every word of my site and can point to all the typos and gramatical errors. Oh, you know, I solve my problems with things I don't like by avoiding them, like you can avoid my site). Where was I? Oh, background. I got an email from someone. No idea who. But s/he had some choice words for me, and none of them were very positive. Evidentally, I manage to inspire hate in someone I've never met. Wow. That's an accomplishment. But here's really the weird thing. This wasn't sent to my work email which, to be honest, you probably could figure out with a Google search and some basic knowledge of Cleveland law firms with what I might have revealed about the firm. (I also know that I've also used that upon occasion as the email address with comments elsewhere.) It wasn't sent to my hotmail address, which is on certain websites, and if you knew that I a member of the website, you could send it there. It wasn't sent to my gmail account which has also been used as the email address in leaving comments. No, this was sent to the other account. I've no idea how you have it. I'd think you have to be someone I know, except only my friends have that account, and I can't imagine any of my friends saying such things. (Really, I can't imagine anyone so irritated with someone they probably don't know that they wrote an email that is the equivalient of 1 1/2 pages in Word Perfect times roman 12 about how crazy they are and how much you hate them.) And to go through the trouble to find my ONE email addres that ISN'T anywhere out on the web - wow. I have inspired such dedication. Thus, I think you're the stalker. I've certaintly never threatened anyone. And the fact that your "name" was anonymous - real brave there. I don't really have anything else to say to you other than, no, I didn't not mention the first message because I was scared of you. I actually didn't give you much thought at all. Truth. Now you got your attention on my blog (albeit in smaller font) - go read someone else's.

    I listened to the song five times today (three of those times were in a row). Does that make me a fan? Or someone with a problem??

    What the fuck? If I didn't think the person would just squeal with glee from the attention, I'd suggest you put the email in your blog so we could all openly mock him/her. But that's probably just what the person wants. What a douche.

    Who actually takes those things seriously, anyway? Because if people do, then I'm in trouble. I'm sure the FBI would be after me, as well as Jon Stewart's wife.

    what a psycho! why don't people understand that your blog is your personal territory to rant and say whatever you want? i had a weirdo post in my comments section one day. some random guy who i don't know at all! it's weird. in the (edited) words of eric schaeffer who played joe macgonaughgill in "if lucy fell" — tell him to get off your blog!, this is the blog where normal people post! get off my blog!

    okay, maybe you just have to see the movie to get the joke. but i say again ... what a psycho!

    Curse all you want. There is porn on the Internet for crying out loud! I don't think bad words should surpass bestiality on the wrong-o-meter. "Anonymous" should get a life.
