It never ceases to amaze me how amazed I am by how early the sun sets during the winter. I am truly shocked every year, like some puppy that gets smacked in the face with a newspaper and then five minutes later is happily panting, waiting for more. Not that it really matters, it's not as if I'd be out in the park running laps if it were still light out.
In other news, I've finally posted Will Carlough's Awesome Movie Show on the League.
More as it comes.

You have a friend on New Jersey Transit
I was going to write a post about how I took New Jersey Transit this weekend to visit my grandfather, and on the way back all I had was a fifty, which the conductor refused to take, so I had to get change from a passenger and engage him in some somewhat awkward conversation, but I decided that it really wasn't that interesting.

Some text from a subway Trimspa ad:
Get the attention you deserve... Anna is.
Now, how that made it to print is beyond me. It should either be 'Anna does,' or, I don't know, 'Be getting the attention you deserve.' Now, elsewhere, the ad does say 'Be envied,' so maybe 'Anna is' is a reference to that, but they're far apart and in different fonts.
My other problem with the ad is that it's all about how much weight Anna lost, but in every shot, her body is obscured by something. In the main picture, she's being given a piggy back ride by some guy. In another picture, we can see her face (glowering at us) and her shoulder, but that's about it. In another very small picture, we can see her full body, but for one, she's in this absurd 1930's swimsuit, and for two, her arm is covering the rest of her up because she's dancing with the piggy back guy.
Oh, and that glower and shoulder picture? It has a little subtitle: 'Trimspa baby!' There should be a comma between Trismpa and baby, but I don't even care about that anymore. Trimspa baby? Appending baby on the end of stuff was sort of tolerable for about a month after Austin Powers came out. But after two sequels and god knows how many lame imitations, geez. Why didn't they make it - 'Trimspa sucks. Not!' How about 'We're two wild and crazy guys! On Trimspa!' Or something equally dated and not funny.
And do women really want to take advice from Anna Nicole Smith on how to get attention?

Last night I had a dream that I was taking a test that I hadn't studied for. And get this - I was in my underwear! Good god, my subconscious is trite.

That's me after shaving off all of my body hair, strapped into a scale model of the interior of the Astor Place cube for a music video that my friend was directing.
Along with a yellow shirt that I drew a zig zag on, my baldness allowed me to be Charlie Brown for Halloween. A character that ranks up there as one of my top childhood heroes. At least in my revisionist history of childhood heroes. I'd just as soon forget I used to really like Snarf and the entire cast of Josie and the Pussycats.
And Welcome Back, the movie that won that twenty-four filmmaking competition is now up on the rhl for all to see. We made a few changes to it, mostly taking out some embarrassing mistakes that we didn't notice until we outputted to tape. But it's basically what was submitted and screened.
But you know what bugs me is that when you go to Subway, and you want a sandwich and chips, it costs the same as when you get it with a soda. So to feel like I'm getting my money's worth, I end up drinking a soda I don't want.
