So, like shmivejournal, I like being the top hit for my name. This was easily possible for a while, despite the efforts of some athlete out in Colorado. January of 2004 my Google rank for my real name was ruined by some movie pirate. At least I still had Kingfox, right?


But I've lost Kingfox on Google Images. There's a Chinese line of USB devices branded with Kingfox. Durn those intellectual property thieves! The worst part of it is, I haven't been able to find a site to buy one of 'em. Except for maybe this site for $200 US. If I ever catch one at a grey market store in NYC, I'm snatching it up. All I need after that is The Hungering Cold from Naxx to put on it.

Current Location: Drew University, Madison, NJ
Feeling: geeky geeky
Listening to: Natalie Merchant, Bury Me Under the Weeping Willow

Scarlett Johansson usually does cool movies, is a canadian and is a real hottie to boot, so I'm comfortable with her doing a Tom Waits cover album. That just gives her props.

OJ freaks me out, though.

It's funny, I expected you to be in the other camp with madolan and others about this. Didn't factor the Canuck thing into it.

I find her incredibly attractive, and missed my chance. Maybe next time. But being attractive doesn't stop people from doing atrocious things.

I am amazed that a Waits fan such as yourself would be more disturbed by a "fictional" book by OJ Simpson.

Mr. Waits writes music that is almost custom-designed to be covered; that is, he wraps very simple, melodic, lyrical cores in a coating of boom and sprang and wham. That guaranteeds that there are going to be a LOT of covers. As is, he's covered by all sorts of people, and everybody in between.

Lots of people cover Waits, but there are many, many worse r-tards than Ms. Johansson to give me pause. Like, say, Ashlee Simpson. If Ashlee Simpson ever covered Tom Waits, I think the laws of physics would break down and I might undergo spontaneous implosion.

O.J. Simpson, though, is just an evil fucker, innocent verdict or not.

'All the pieces of me (spread out amongst a pool of bourbon)' perhaps?
