Me Blog Pretty One Day
First and foremost, be sure to check out the "be my generous friend" link in my profile on the right. It's my Amazon Wishlist, and believe it or not, my statcounter tells me you readers average an income of $1,340,092.72. So no excuses, I hope you're all prone to spending frivolously on strangers...
Also, I've added a few sites to the "you should browse" section. If you like live comedy, be sure to check out the Apiary. They do a great job keeping track of all the sketch groups and ucb acts that the cool kids are loving.
Lastly, let me know what you think of the "you should watch", "you should hear", and "you should own" sections. I literally spent an entire day whittling down my list of favorite shows, bands and albums... and along the way, got reacquainted with some long lost loves, like XTC. If you click on the "you should watch" thumbnails, it should take you to a site where you can watch clips of the respective show. Clicking on "you should hear" thumbnails will take you to a site streaming that band's music. And "you should own" thumbnails take you to Amazon. Anyways, comment away and let me know what you think I've left off... and we'll have a healthy debate. =)
Just wanted to say thanks again to all you readers. Really appreciate the comments and emails. It helps with these long ass posts to know that people will not only actually read them, but appreciate them too! For those who've emailed, I promise to reply back soon, I've gotten lazy, but I assure you that your emails are "starred" in my gmail!
p.s. The title of this post is of course from David Sedaris' collection of essays, "Me Talk Pretty One Day". If you guys haven't read David Sedaris (I feel like pretty much everyone has by now, I was a latecomer), also check out "Naked".
Anyways, he's a genius, his sister's Amy Sedaris, and his "Live At Carnegie Hall" CD is amazing!! (thanks again for the gift Melina!) Here's him reading "Six to Eight Black Men" and "Repeat After Me", which can both be found in "Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim":

*EDIT: Totally forgot to mention the ever-important "You Should Lust" section of the sidebar. That was a tough, tough list to make. So many candidates, so little sidebar space. As you can see, we got Angelina Jolie, Charlize Theron, Katherine Heigl, Autumn Reeser, Kristen Bell, and Kristin Kreuk. Some honorable mentions that didn't make the cut: Stacy Keibler, Salma Hayek and Jessica Alba. Anyways, click on the thumbnails and it'll take you to their fanpage galleries. Who would be on your "lust list"?
