Right now, I'm listening to one of my brother's CDs.. Ticked by the ApologetiX. It's true that Biblical parodies of rock songs may not be for everyone, but when I saw this when looking through his CDs, I knew I just HAD to borrow it! I also like the way they got around actually mentioning the Butthole Surfers explicitly (because "butthole" is a BAD word! :P).. they call them the "Buttonhole Surfers." Way to go! :) The CD cover art is interesting, too.. it looks like a Rolling Stone cover, but of course really isn't. (they call it "Rolling Clone" and have these "joke names" like A. Paul O'Jetticks, Hugh DeCide, Macon M. Christian, Alanis More-Upset, Ninevahna, Greek Day, and Staunch Temple Zealots)

Here's the track list, in case anybody's interested.. ;)

1. Come Out and Pray (parody of Come Out and Play by the Offspring) [taken from 2 Chronicles 7:14]
2. All ApologetiX (parody of All Apologies by Nirvana) [taken from 1 Corinthians 9:22]
3. Naomi Gonna Be With Ruth (parody of Only Wanna Be With You by Hootie and the Blowfish) [from Ruth 1-4]
4. Shepherd's Paradise (parody of Gangsta's Paradise by Coolio, feat. L.V.) [from Psalm 23, John 10:1-30, Matthew 25:31-46]
5. Counting Blessings (parody of Counting Blue Cars by Dishwalla) [from Philippians 4:6-8, 1 Peter 5:7]
6. Plump (parody of Lump by the Presidents of the United States of America) [from Judges 3:12-30]
7. Letterman (parody of Better Man by Pearl Jam) [taken from Luke 6:46]
8. People (parody of Pepper by the Butthole Surfers) [from Revelations 6:9-11, Matthew 5:10, Matthew 24:9]
9. Big Deal (parody of Big Me by the Foo Fighters) [taken from James 2:14-26]
10. Little Sins (parody of Little Things by Bush) [taken from James 2:10, Matthew 5:17-30]
11. Stupid World (parody of Stupid Girl by Garbage) [taken from 1 Corinthians 1:18-29, 1 Corinthians 3:19-20]
12. A Lie (parody of Alive by Pearl Jam) [from Romans 1:18-23]
13. Preachers (parody of Peaches by the Presidents of the United States of America) [that's taken from Philippians 1:15-28, 2 Corinthians 2:17]
14. Who's There? (parody of Loser by Beck) [that's taken from Revelations 3:20, James 5:9]
15. Heaven Isn't Like That (parody of Shine by Collective Soul) [from 1 Corinthians 2:9]
16. No Chain (parody of No Rain by Blind Melon) [taken from 2 Timothy 2:8-9]
17. Young As You Are (parody of Come As You Are by Nirvana) [taken from Ecclesiastes 12:1]
18. Casket Place (parody of Basket Case by Green Day) [from Matthew 24]
19. Lightning Flashes (parody of Lightning Crashes by Live) [from Matthew 24:27]
20. InYerFace Love Song (parody of Interstate Love Song by the Stone Temple Pilots) [from Romans 10:9, 13]
21. You Gotta Go (parody of You Oughta Know by Alanis Morissette) [taken from Ecclesiastes 7:5, Romans 1:18-21, Romans 10:9, 13]

There you have it.. almost 75 minutes of hilarious parody music with a good message! :)

Oh yeah, the CD itself is called Ticked. (I linked the group)

I was also wondering.. where does your brain go when you dream about sleeping? Heck, when you dream about playing with friends and all that.. it's true your subconscious might be trying to tell you something (or not). But if you dream about sleeping, you ARE already doing it, right? So why the need for your subconscious to go: "Hey dude.. you need more sleep, so that's why you're dreaming about it even as you ARE sleeping..."? Very weird.

My brother also thought it hilarious that I wiped out over my backpack last night on our way out, and wanted to know if I could do it again.. um, no.. I don't think so! (I was trying to get from one room to the other, and it wasn't really even in the way.. could be comic fodder, but that and his parodies of songs on the radio on the way to church just aren't too funny if they're about me.. though I laugh anyways.. weeeeeeeeeird..)

Here's a note for a certain someone (you know who you are, let's hope): No, I am NOT mad at you. I just need to sleep, given the major time difference and everything else. I'll be happy to talk to you again, maybe at a more reasonable hour. We'll see. :)

Imagine finding poo on your porch in the morning! That would be SO gross! :P

I'd also like to add that the DiLullo quints (Angelina, Daniel, James, John, and Lauren) were born on this day in 2000. So, happy 3rd birthday to them! :)

Pizza places

went to a pizza place after Fellowship.. madcap hilarious hijinks there.. ;) (certain people's vocabulary going downhill, hilarious conversational topics, etc.)

got home earlier than usual and watched some late-night TV.. MAD TV ain't that bad for these purposes! :)

now, I must sleep.. AWANA awaits! woohoo! :D (I love the kids.. as if you couldn't tell already :P)

Friday plans and bus passes / Quiz Heaven and Quiz Universe stuff

just got off the phone with my brother.. Friday plans are more difficult now because of the bus pass thing.. I'm being really cheap, and I don't think I've taken the bus once since maybe mid-December... (wow.. what a record..) My brother thinks I should cut down on my miscellaneous spending and save money to take the bus with.. hey, I was doing pretty well up till earlier today.. guess we'll see what happens tomorrow! I should go to Fellowship, especially as I've only been there once in 2003 (and my attendance record's likely to get more spotty as time goes on).. and me a Committee member! Ah well, suppose I shall see if the next few weeks bring me a shiny new bus pass or not..

Buying up stuff again

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, KEITH! Hope you have a good one! :)

Well, I just got back from being out for a few hours.. yeah, it felt good to go out and experience the cold wind upon my face. :) (and no, I don't have a clue what I'm talking about :P) Went to Staples (an office-supply store) and bought up some stuff that I needed; also did the same at London Drugs. I was supposed to go to Boston Pizza and meet someone, but they didn't show! Sigh.. got home later to find out that they were sick. So that was probably about $65 that I shouldn't have spent.. then again, I did need to eat, and I would have bought up all the other stuff later on anyhow. Yup.. that's my rationale for spending money today.. tomorrow, it may be slightly different. ;)

So what exactly did I buy? A hole punch (had to replace my old one), tape, a gift bag that reminded me of my sister (it had a pig on it, much the same as that decorative wall tile I got her for Christmas.. but since I'm too cheap to mail it to Toronto, I'll wait till she gets back), two birthday cards (one for my sister, whose birthday is in February.. and the other for my friend Jessica, whose birthday is also in February), gum, a cute stuffed bear, plus a BBQ chicken pizza at BP. Exciting stuff, I know.. :P

Just occurred to me that I might have misinterpreted an email that was sent to me the other day, and taken it a shade too literally. Yes, you were trying to joke around.. that much I recognized. But then I seriously killed the joke in my reply. Sorry about that.

Back to the database work.. thought I was done, but then I thought of something else that needed doing.. at least I won't need to eat for a long while!

Mindless work

what a day.. just mainly been fielding email and doing mindless personal database work.. hardly got interrupted, either :) (except by a legitimate phone call and a couple of thankfully brief IM sessions.. you know who you are) but I'm finally done for now.. woohoo! :) doesn't mean you can bug me willy-nilly now, of course.. unless I really like ya! :)

some of you have been commenting on this blog, and kind of complaining that it doesn't make sense (or something similar) .. well, you know what I have to say to that? I never said I would make sense in the first place.. this blog isn't advertised to make perfect sense.. mwahahahahaha :P so there! (besides, it could definitely be argued that I never make much sense either in real life or online!)

Instant messaging Information

Decided to post this, seeing as I was very recently inspired by a blog I was just reading.


ICQ: 167565210 (I'll be more likely to be on this one Saturday nights only (or whenever I'm at my brother's), unless something really dramatic happens, such as my getting a new computer.. ha ha, yeah right!)
AIM: AlenaBrolxFlami
Yahoo: flamsterette_x

So add me.. come on, you know you want to! :) (and if you already have me on your list, then YOU ARE SPECIAL! :P) And do say that you've added me as a result of reading this.. helps to screen out all the weirdos. ;)

Killing people who disconnect me!

oh, and I'd like to add that it's especially annoying when you're in the middle of good IM conversations / posting / doing other Internet-related things.. and someone calls, disconnecting you... then they don't really have a reason to call.. not that I'm opposed to people calling just to chat, but honestly sometimes if you don't have a reason to call, DON'T CALL ME.. (and yes, it's annoying when the disconnect happens in those circumstances.. and you're left holding the phone because there's nobody on the other end.. you say: "hello? ... hello?" and get no answer.. too damn annoying, if you ask me..)

that is all I'd like to say on that one for now.. except for this: I would really like to kill those people sometimes.. grrrrrrr.....

Talking to dead air

one of the joys of having only one phone line is getting to talk to dead air on the phone.. something that I seem to be doing more often of late.. when the phone rings, it disconnects me.. and then sometimes when I get to the phone, the person on the other end has already hung up, thereby disconnecting me for no reason! GRRR.. it's not that I'm unreasonably slow in getting to the phone (heck, it's right there by my computer), but why can't people actually STAY on the phone until they get an answer? beats me..

so YES.. I hate talking to dead air.. and it's definitely not my fault that I do :P

Matt Good (his "new" solo song Weapon) is on the radio! Yay! (I know this will cause at least one of you to go: "oh nooooo... not again!" hehehehehe)

speaking of birthdays.. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JADEN.. I definitely enjoy seeing you at Awana and church.. have a fun day! :)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, SUSAN.. I definitely enjoyed being at your wedding and banquet last year, and hope you and Anderson are enjoying married life.. hope you have a great one, and hope also to see you soon.. love ya! :)
