Directly inspired by “The Campaign for Berkeley”

See more info on my facebook.

Just go to it…see it…comment on it…spread the word…become a part of a movement.

Together, we can become a truly powerful satirical force.

(Well…I decided that I’ll limit it to my facebook friends…but hey we could still be a movement!)

UPDATE:

After the rains washed down my first attempt, I set aside some time to put up my spare while moving out of my apartment.

Wow…it’s been a while. I’ve become quite neglectful of this little blog here. There’s just been so much going on. Well, not really, but it certainly felt like a lot was going on.

I had been working a bit more and was a little more tired than usual, which isn’t anything to complain about, but combine that with the increased laziness in the summer…and you get over a month without an update on my blog.

Well, I guess I’ll sort out some of the things that I have been doing these past few weeks.

I know Valentine’s Day has already come and gone…but this was just too good not to post. I found the following clip on Berg Loves Pizza, a great music blog, and I decided to steal it and post it here:

That little boy is a future Ernest Hemingway! Or at least a future Nicholas Sparks. (Hey Kristiane! The boy’s name is Max!) I can’t think of any modern love poets…post-modern writers are too depressed by our thoroughly empty and depraved world to be writing useless love poems…or they find some super-depressing thing about love, and the world in general, to underscore with the poem. (I love modern/post-modern literature by the way. Seriously.)

According to the youtube description, this was an ad for Indigo, a Canadian bookstore chain, and their “Love of Reading” program (and, of course, to sell its books). I don’t know about you, but showing me this ad in grade school would’ve been more effective than telling me that “Reading is Funnnn-damental” or that I should “Read to Achieve.” Reading will help you get the ladies, yo!

(Note: I’d like to point out how big of a bitch inconsiderate the teacher was for reading that letter out loud. And what kind of a classroom full of kids doesn’t scream, laugh, and ridicule after a letter like that is read? Unless…the vocabulary and writing just went right over their heads…and what would that say about the success of Indigo’s “Love of Reading” program? Should I just enjoy the ad for what it is?)

Songs of the Day:

Rachel Yamagata – “Letter Read” / (album link)
Lupe Fiasco – “Can You Let Me Know” / (unreleased track)
Elliott Smith – “Thirteen” / (album link)
