Crazy weekend
Took a long nap earlier today, so of course now I'm wide awake.

Music geeks like mrfantasy, jenniever, and runstaverun should check this out.

This past weekend was pretty crazy. There was the dance, which I already posted pictures of. jenniever and _yggdrasil discussed it here, where my failure is revealed. Read the aforementioned _yggdrasil's excellent summary here, see mineral2's summary here, doughnutman's name dropping summary here, and so on. Held at the Liberty Science Center, it was a blast. We sat with angelity and some people who don't have journals near the tidal power machine, which is why it was in the background in the shots of us. It was nice to meet some of jenniever's friends that she had told me so much about throughout the course of the evening, and to finally ``meet'' _yggdrasil in real life. Kept on running into various other drewuniversity peeps I knew, like jennytenny and xypher. Got to go through the wonderful Touch Tunnel once, dance quite a bit with jenniever, and see a good percentage of the open exhibits. We made rivers and had fun. While admiring the view from the place, I was deeply nauseated by the number of people who admired the ``Manhattan skyline view'' from the place. Yes, fools, there's the Empire State Building. There's a series of tall buildings. You're in Jersey City. A river separates New Jersey and New York City. There's no river between you and the rest of the buildings you're admiring. Those are the buildings I see from the roof of my lovely Hoboken apartment, which is over there to the North on your left. That skyscraper is far. Those are near, and not part of Manhattan. Get out more, kids.

Unfortunately, we got kicked out before we could Touch Tunnel again or even slow dance once. The DJ shut down after playing one slow song, we were just about to make it to the dance floor. Sweet mother of fuck. Just because some people couldn't hold their liquor, the whole lot of us got tossed. Damn. Bad apples ruining it as usual.

Realized later back home that I didn't wear my suit from the Maiden fan. You know, the one I've been itching for a reason to wear? By mistake in my last-minute rush, I grabbed my eight year old suit, and didn't even notice until seeing the new suit in my closet. I have lost weight!

Later that weekend a chopper outside the window woke us up. Well, it woke jenniever up. She asked what the noise was, and sleepy kingfox kept on telling her that it was nothing. Finally she checked out the rattling window, and saw a chopper circling Hoyt with a search light. I thought it was a medivac for an injury that couldn't be moved by car down the road, and we went back to sleep. While we found out what was going on that night, we still haven't found out why the chopper was at drewuniversity of all places. One theory I've heard is a news organization getting the wrong campus.

They're getting rid of syndication points on LJ soon, so people no longer have an excuse to not be reading some of the less popular feeds out there.

My gourd arrived today, and is currently being cured for use.

Happy birthday redvector!

Hey dude, you left out a certified 1455-watt college radio nerd. Half an hour left before I need to leave and I'm sitting here in my jammies looking at the damn album covers, trying to decide on one to do myself and being angry that I didn't get Such Great Reward.

Throwing Copper is my favorite thus far. In high school I drew a parody of that with some loser my best friend liked as the protagonist, with all his nasty, troll-like groupies. Including her.

I'm sorry for leaving you out. There's many music nerds on my friends list, I just named a few that I've seen get into things like this. It's a cute idea, and a great thread. Some of the people on it are pretty good, though I know mine was too obvious for words.
daylami From: daylami Date: April 8th, 2004 01:23 pm (UTC) (Hard link)
I'm just busting on ya. :) Which one is yours? Maybe I haven't gotten to it yet... I'm still patting myself on the back for getting Up In It, and trying to think of one to do on my own.
kingfox From: kingfox Date: April 8th, 2004 01:40 pm (UTC) (Hard link)
Mine is the obvious one posted by ``Kingfox'' and solved a minute later.
daylami From: daylami Date: April 8th, 2004 02:06 pm (UTC) (Hard link)
Oh yeah! I just didn't feel like going back through all the pages to find you. (For the record, I didn't know what that one was.) I'm considering registering just so I can play, but it makes me feel weird.

*daylami is proud to have also gotten the Magnetic Fields, Joe Jackson, and Afro-Celt Sound System albums, amoung others*
kingfox From: kingfox Date: April 8th, 2004 03:14 pm (UTC) (Hard link)

Sure, I'll link this up for you...

mrfantasy posted the White Album and didn't bother registering, but go ahead and register.

I did a Type O Negative album cover.

And I used to think I was thorough in linking the movies I mentioned.


Yes, I know you've been doing this for a while, but the fact that you continue to do it exhaustively is just... neat.
kingfox From: kingfox Date: April 8th, 2004 01:03 pm (UTC) (Hard link)

*sniff* *wipes tear from eye*

Yeah, I have been doing it for a long while. I wish more people would take advantage of the wonderful service I was providing. The world would be a better place. If people are not enjoying my links, the terrorists have already won!

Actually, it wasn't just a bunch of pussies who can't hold their liquor. Some adultsdumbasses with the mentality of three-year olds were throwing stuff off the third-floor balcony and puking in the fish tank.

Then again, it never occured to LSC to not give more drinks to obviously-drunk people who were obviously buying twenty liquor tickets at a time. Apparently, the LSC workers' responses were something along the lines of "ooooh ...". Bad thinking on both sides.

I heard something about cookies in the fish tank, I didn't know it was tossing cookies in the fish tank. Lovely.

There was one person that could barely stand up on line for their wristband back at the Forum, who tossed their cookies on the bus twice, and was served that evening. Then again, they were also fairly well behaved and didn't cause any problems beyond the bus mess.

Two words for you: New and Jersey :)
kingfox From: kingfox Date: April 8th, 2004 01:42 pm (UTC) (Hard link)
What about New Jersey?

Honestly, we do have a few universities in the area. We're right next to FDU and Saint E's, so I can understand any possible confusion.

bla bla bla

Either way you slice it, it's NJ :)

BTW, nice icon :) Can I steal it?
kingfox From: kingfox Date: April 8th, 2004 03:12 pm (UTC) (Hard link)
Sure, I stole it from someone a while ago myself. Enjoy!

yay. now I'll be able to read such feeds as madisoncam
kingfox From: kingfox Date: April 8th, 2004 01:45 pm (UTC) (Hard link)
Of course, that feed's only useful to see when someone's commenting on some action in front of the cam. Which means it's even more dead than downtown Madison itself.

I didn't click on any of your links. :)
kingfox From: kingfox Date: April 8th, 2004 01:46 pm (UTC) (Hard link)
You should. One of them makes fun of you, really.
runstaverun From: runstaverun Date: April 8th, 2004 11:26 am (UTC) (Hard link)
I clicked your link... pretty funnny, thanks for pointing it out!
kingfox From: kingfox Date: April 8th, 2004 01:47 pm (UTC) (Hard link)
I thought you would like it. It was an entertaining little contest.

See, you should click on links more often.
jenniever From: jenniever Date: April 8th, 2004 02:43 pm (UTC) (Hard link)
Stave's buddy icon kills me everytime. It's acutely adorable. Probably the most adorable south park icon I have or will ever see and I have a particular affinity for it.

hahahahha, get, it, acutely??? HAHAHAHAHAHHAHA

Mate should be prepared in a gourd, huh? I grew gourds once, and mate is my ingestion of choice when I want to be awake but be able to go to sleep when I choose, but I'm usually in the middle of something and just chew a half teaspoon of the leaves, dry. I suppose that cuts into the gourd-sellers profits.
