Things to occupy your time

Didn’t get away for the holiday weekend? No one around to drink spiked lemonade with? While I am away at the Niece’s Bat Mitzvah, please enjoy these exciting things I found on the Internets.

1. Trailer to the Ian Curtis movie, Control, (I think it’s from Cannes, if you’re wondering about the French subtitles… quite frankly they’re helpful for translating from Mancunian English). If there’s been one constant about this blog it’s been my desire, nay, compulsion to see this movie.

2. Speaking of subtitles, enjoy the French Open like me, with this handy vocabulary list.

3. New Digg-like website for bloggers. It doesn’t quite seem to have taken off yet, but I feel sure there will someday be more than eight readers.

4. What was that Nirvana song while Jack was driving? Who was the obituary for in the newspaper clipping? Find out at Lostpedia.

5. AOL finds the cuddly side of Memorial Day. “We don’t have a Dad anymore, but I’m sure this puppy will replace him just fine!”

The other stories are full of appropriate gravitas, as well.



6. Speaking of Memorial Day, Top 10 list of worst National Anthem performances ever. With video!

7. My new 404/Error page! Previously, you had been taken to the front page of the blog. Well, not you, you never make a mistake. Other people.

Well now we’re all ready to go back to work, I’m sure.



It’s been a long time, but I did actually recognize the Nirvana song.

Nirvana – Scentless Apprentice

Michael Bolton’s song absolutely sets my teeth on edge.

And that blog site? Um, a bit ORANGE.

I saw the puppy story today, and they didn’t even get the *actual* puppy, just one from the litter. These bizarre stories. Are they supposed to help?

I have a bug flying around in my lamp, and I’m trying to nail him, but other than that, this post actually *did* occupy my time.

I did get this ping, so maybe I’m back in action! Cheers!

You have now officially ruined my life with that Lostpedia link.
And forget Sawyer, BF Skinner is H.O.T.
You can now prepare your Skinner box jokes accordingly.

That movie looks amazing. I have to see it.
I love the line “even the people who love me hate me”.

I can relate Ian. Totally.

I stopped watching Lost when Season 2 started, vowing to wait for the Seasons’ releases on DVD. It takes for freaking ever to watch a whole season of Lost! So, all that stopped me on ABC last Wednesday, as I was flipping through the channels, was the first not of Scentless Apprentice. Yay! for Nirvana, who I keep running into again and again in my everyday life for the past few weeks.

I don’t understand any of the comments. Does that mean I am completely out of touch with all popular culture now?

 
Sarpon says

Wait, except comments relating to the movie trailer. Got those.

No, it just means you didn’t click on the links. Which is perfectly acceptable.
