Randomness: Tumblr!

You guys!  I totally have a tumblr now that will contain complete epic randomness that thus far is mostly book quotes and kitties.  You should def check it out!  Particularly if you like my blog, which, um, if you’re reading this, you probably do.


Randomness: Ebay aka Help a Poor Lady Out

You guys, so I totally am selling stuff I don’t need anymore on ebay to help myself out in this slightly tight financial time while I’m hunting for an MLIS job.  So.  If you want to get any movies/music/videogames/periodically other stuff from a trustworthy source, please do check it out!

You benefit. I benefit. It’s all good karma.


Hey Ya’ll!!

I just wanted to write up a quick post to tell you that


Until Wednesday to be exact.  Granted, it’s a staycation, but it’s my first holiday from work since when I graduated from undergrad.  I know, I know.  Anyway, if I feel so inclined I might post before then, but don’t count on it. I am, after all, planning on being out and about taking my lovely city of Boston by storm.  Also possibly sleeping periodically.  Maybe.

Eh, who am I kidding, I rarely sleep!!  But there will definitely be sake involved.

Metropolis Drinking Game

Black and white image of a woman winking.So.  You’ve decided to take the plunge and watch the ridiculous and baffling classic movie Metropolis.  Want a more fun, lively experience?  Take my advice and turn it into a drinking game using the following guidelines my friend and I came up with while giggling at the pure hilarity of it all:

  • Every time Maria gropes her own tit, take a drink.
  • Every time Evil Robot Maria winks directly into the camera, take a drink.
  • Every time there is an intensely homoerotic scene where the characters are |this close| to kissing, take a drink.
  • Every time a character raises one eyebrow with an amount of grace most modern actors can’t pull off, take a drink.
  • And finally, every time the movie mentions a mediator, take a drink.

Follow these guidelines, and trust me, the two and half odd hours of silent film awesomeness, hilarity, and bizarre plot will just fly right by.

Randomness (#1)

I see this ad on the T every day on the way to work:

Not this actual billboard, but the same ad on one of the bus stop shelters.

Every time I see it, I wonder what the mad men want us to think?  Is it that their vodka is as good as boobies?  Or that if you drink their vodka you’ll get to see boobies?  But then why are the boobies completely blocked by the bottle of vodka?  Also, why did they go with obviously feminine fingers when they could have gone gender neutral thus allowing those of all sexual preferences to either see a woman unzipping her top or a man unzipping his pants.

So many questions. So few answers.

Maybe if I saw it at a time of day other than 7:30am when I’m actively working on my first cup of coffee……
