My personal journal happens to be friends-only, but for those of you who are scoping out this journal to see if I use it, I do! I swear! I'm also an ONTD fanatic.

"Just kidding! Me loves Homeland Security!"

This, ladies and gentlemen (and all variations therein) is what sucks.

There is a site called Pajiba.com. It's a site/blog for movie reviews. It's motto is "Scathing Reviews for Bitchy People" and that pretty much sums it up. Most of the reviews are snarky, sassy, full of intellectual humor with some good ol' potty humor sprinkled in every now and then. It's a site I go to everyday (which I'm sure Pajiba is happy about from an ad-sales viewpoint).

So yesterday I steered my browser to Pajiba, as usual, and the site was Effed the Effed up. It looked like a cached page or... just the wrong page. Nothing was there.

Pajiba was GONE.

So... I figured my low wireless signal was just giving me trouble. Today, I checked back.

Still gone.

I didn't think too much about it, considering work is a bitch right now and I'm getting ready to go to Chicago. So... as of 15 minutes ago, I checked back again. And this is what I read: Turbo lamenessCollapse )

For the most part, I ignore politics. Call it the apathy of my generation. Or just apathy. But this got me thinking. To keep with the movie vibe, I'm having the same feelings I had while watching "Good Night and Good Luck" and "V for Vendetta" (which I didn't like--Natalie Portman is a hermaphrodite and needs to shut up, plus those people need to work on their plot lines).

I'm not sure if this all has a point, and maybe I'm just bitching and moaning because finally all of this stuff is affecting me and I'm being a baby, but...

it just sucks. I hope the DHS the servers back to Pajiba.

It's not just the celebrity bashing I enjoy; it's the extent to which she takes it. It's artistic, sarcastic, and terrific all in one bloggity bite.

Katie: that quiz with the animals was super cute, but I prefer the "what kind of drunk are you" quiz...

You're A Crazy Drunk

When you drink, you get wrecked - and it ain't pretty.
What Kind of Drunk Are You?

All of the SMA girls out there will appreciate this:

I found Ole Forsberg's twin.

He works in my office. Same hair. Same smile. Same lack of an ass. Same "Bible-salesman" look (thank you Megan). And on the other side of the country. What the fuck.

a lil clarification

Several people have asked me what an art director is. It sounds pretty cool, and I feel pretty cool when I tell people that I am one. So, here's the definition as it pertains to me:

-An art director is a designer most of the time. It can be a designer of most anything, but in my case it's print and TV.
-An art director is a workhorse. Everyone above us sits on their ass and then dumps work on us at the last minute and we're supposed to scramble to get it done on time--and make it look hot.
-The title "art director" sounds a lot more awesome than it really is. We get paid about as much as the average public school teacher.
-Sure, we get to travel and go to photo shoots and stuff. That's definitley a "fun" part.
-We also have to work super late during projects. Late as in we don't go home for days on end. Not really a big deal.
-During downtime, we get to read magazines and surf all day, and are encouraged to do so. The younger directors (ie: me) are always expected to know what's going on in the outside world and are called upon when a client needs something new and fresh. Easier said than done.
-We drink a lot.
-We screw a lot ('cept for me; I only screw one guy, but I do it a lot).
-We party a lot, and it tends to be expensive AND we have the client pay for it all.
-The average A.D. has to do some super lame ads. Ads for motor oil or fake cheese or big corporations that don't have a clear purpose but still need ads. If you do nice work, then they give you better clients and so on.

That's pretty much it. It can vary from agency to agency. I have to say that I really like it, and when I do complain I usually remind myself of all the cool stuff I get to do and then it doesn't seem so lame. I'm sure someone is going to argue with me about my definition (in fact, someone already has). What do I say? Fuck 'em. Fuck 'em right in the ear. It's my journal.

So I've never really been a "fan" of any TV show. I like certain TV shows, but I won't have a stroke if I miss an episode... or 6. The same goes for celebrities. I've never purchased a tabloid (although here at work we're constantly bombarded with magazines... everything from Cigar Aficionado to Us Weekly--so I page through the tabloidesque stuff looking for fat pictures of Britney Spears to make me feel good). I'm just not a fanatic about anything really.

Although, I've really been getting into the show Grey's Anatomy. Good acting. Good characters. Good plot. It's probably about as close as I've come to being a true "fan" of a show. I highly recommend it. ER really annoys me, so loving Grey's Anatomy is a huge compliment from me.
