Summer Survivor

I have decided that I am going to live this summer like it's one long, personal episode of Survivor where I am the host as well as both tribes and I give myself little challenges and compete for a million dollars against myself. Because I am both tribes, I will conclude each challenge by bad talking myself and saying what a back-stabber I am and stuff.
Tonight's challenge was to read the new Dean Wareham memoir while playing all three Galaxie 500 albums in a row. And I did it. I won the challenge. I now get immunity from something.

I don't know how long it takes to play those albums, but I read only 84 pages in that time. I am so slow. The book is a fun read, I suppose. He's got some funny stories. I like hearing about Kramer (not the Seinfeld Kramer) the most. I wonder if he has a book.

Galaxie 500 is just so awesome, though. That first record still kills me. This is one band I feel like I found all by myself and never shared with anyone else b/c nobody else knew about them. My friend Catherine in Bloomington did, but I think that was it. I remember once I told her I liked some e.p. that Damon and Naomi made after G500 broke up and she said she didn't and it embarrassed me because I thought she was cool and had cool taste. She was so right though, now that I think about it.

It's past my bedtime, but I need to go see if there is Youtube video of my school's senior prank yet.

When you're bad talking yourself, will you be place little beeps in there replacing certain words?

I've gotta hear this self-smack-scoffing.

Any luck on finding some videos of the pranks?

Mr. Hill said...

No, neither today's or yesterdays. I heard the school has plenty of video of today's though. They just won't be uploading it to youtube.

Hmmm? said...

oh...i saw some video that will be uploaded. Keep looking for videos of the bouncy balls and the food fight--I know they will be put on utube. Soon.

I wonder if you have more miles in this year than I do. I'm gonna guess yes.
