Apparently Jesus forgot about me these last two weeks, and instead Lucifer has decided to make himself my new best friend. And what do BFFs do? Thats right, buy each others' love! Except evil's idea of a "welcome to the friendship" gift is more like a trip to the DMV or a root canal. For me on this joyous occasion, I got a wonderous computer virus. A completely debilitating virus calling itself Worm.Winsky.Net.32 and successfully annoying me into Sylvia Plath-like tendencies.

Internet has been sparce, but I am finally back online with an interum computer. Its an amazing substitute until the priest they have on staff over at Dell is able to exorcise all evil from my previous piece of machinary. Don't pull a Linda Blair on me Inspiron 600m. I'm so behind and have so much music to share/review/dismiss, but since there can only be one Lois Lane super-reporter (and sadly only one Clark Kent), I'll try and get my stories out as time permits.
Before I left for school I was watching the free premium channels with crazy ass movies like London, starring Chris Evans, Jessica Biel, and husband numero tres, Jason Statham. Someone was doing a lot of drugs when they wrote this; I can tell because if I was forced to watch it again I would clearly have to be under the influence of something to make it through. Basically it was a lot of existential bullshit, characters doing braindead amounts of coke, and a completely depressing and might I add, unrealistic view of relationships. The one bright spot was the use of The Perishers "Nothing Like You and I" (from the 2003 album, Let There Be Morning) in a particularly "pivotal" scene. I forgot for about ten seconds how much I love this song; how eerily it makes me excited to have my heart broken from the kind of all-out relationship that leaves one or both parties destroyed.

This past weekend I chick-flicked it up with the girls and saw 27 Dresses. Say what you want Rolling Stone (and every critic out there), I loved this movie. I think I was laughing 65% of the time, while the remainder of the film was spent worthwhile-y oogling James Marsden and the most gorgeous smile I've ever seen. Music selection was interesting to say the least - somehow incorporating Elton John's "Bennie and the Jets" (in the best scene of the movie, hands down), with Chaka Khan, Bloc Party, Common (ft. Lily Allen), Justice, The Turtles, and many more.
Elton John - Bennie and the Jets
Common ft. Lily Allen - Drivin' Me Wild
Chaka Khan - Love Has Fallen on Me
Bloc Party - So Here We Are
Pray for my computer, its in someone's hands. Not mine. And there is a good possibility that 13,456 songs will be deleted in order to restore the registry keys. Can you understand now why Lucifer should never be your Secret Santa? I still have hope though. And what puts me in a more optimistic mood than The Kinks? I'm not sure, Lola asked me to Come Dancing...

Peace love and records
