Soundtrack to a Mistake

The other night I had to pull an all-nighter to work on a paper I had been putting off, the reasons for which my lawyer advises I not disclose.


Still, that's never a good idea--believe you me. Oh, I used to think I could pull it off, that the added intensity of being under the unsparing clock helped more than hindered my creative flow. Of course, after reviewing the tragic tale of my grade point average, I've had to accept that maybe waiting until the last few possible hours before attempting a serious academic paper isn't the best plan available to me.

Anyway, before I even tried to start typing, I decided to make a random playlist of songs that might help my brain absorb information it hadn't yet learned. And, because I am still suffering the physical effects of my prolonged coffee consumption an entire day later, I thought I'd post said playlist and the myspace pages to boot. Just in case you need some help writing a paper on a topic you know nothing about, too.

When I Die...

...I can only hope that someone writes as great an obituary for me as someone wrote for Douglas Tinker.

Closer to the Start

My good ol' pal Geoff told me about this worship band the other day, and I've been really liking them. He originally saw a video they made and then went and bought their CD. I've been re-playing the video a lot since then, because I'm too cheap to actually buy the CD myself. But from what I heard the other day, it's really good. Really. I mean it. I'm not just saying that. I'm not being paid to advertise for them, I swear. (You can buy it here. If you want. No pressure.)

Here's the video. It's neat-o.

If the Other Party Wins

Today is the American election. I have no idea what is going to happen. That is due in large part to my lack of psychic ability. Sure, it seems like one (*cough*Obama*cough*) is more likely to win than the other (*cough*McCain*cough*), but until the votes are counted, it's all speculation.

That being said, I saw this video last night and it made me laugh out loud. "It's funny because it's true!"
