Green Day has a play called "American Idiot" - now Tom Hanks is trying to get that made into a movie. It will mainly be Green Day songs, and little dialogue.
Miley Cyrus is turning to acting as her main career, "Because I like being somebody else," and is keeping the music career on a back-burner...
I've always been a MC fan - mainly because I predicted long ago that she would become a Superstar, and I usually stay with my picks. Even though she is a cool dork, I like her. when she sits in the audience at American Idol, she looks like a rare Normal person - she looks like me, back when I was normal: thinking about relevant things, being curious, caring about friends, talking rationally, putting on Mickey Mouse lipstick and shaking nasty booty at hot boys. Yes, those were the days...
Here's one reason why maybe I'm supposed to die soon: It's odd. About 2 days ago, an old friend jumped into my head - one of those psychic feelings I get when I strongly feel that someone is thinking about me. This was an old girlfriend - the cutest one - (and yet not blonde!). It's possible she WAS thinking of me. I'm not sure, but I think she was only person who ever got to stereotyping me as a troublesome Irish guy - the kind who might end up throwing firebombs into English Pubs while she sat at home, suckling 20 babies. It was all because I was so full of hope and song when she knew me - I was ribbed and hot and wild and clever.
I don't even remember talking to her about religion, but I think that, even though she came from an artistic family, she may have been somewhat conservative - she was oddly shy and oddly not. Which explains why she liked it when I bonked her in front of the window facing the neighbours. But I think she came to the conclusion that I was just too liberal, and too cynical, especially when it came to conservatives. Well, now we have this whole teabagger uprising, and all this Republican asininity, and vandalism, and insane corporatism championed by the Supreme Court, and she might have been thinking, "I wonder what ever happened to *Madman101*?" Yes, my name has always been Madman101. But that's another long story.
OK - so last night I'm "surfing" LJ - (more like snailing) - and I figure I'd see if I could find any old friends on LJ... Then that proceeded to "googling" friends - (I actually use Yahoo, Startpage or Bing). And there she is all over the internet. She's very successful, and well-off - and still single. Why is she still single? Was it my fault? Or was it right for me to leave her because she ate an entire roast beef one night? We may never know. I think it's because her cute little nose was so pointy, many men had castration fears. ha ha ha...
Well, that's one reason I might die. There were other coincidences - suddenly names from the past came flooding in from every direction. Like from other girlfriends! I went back to LJ, and a random user listed another old friend of mine in her "Interests" section - now how weird is that? Another LJ user had about three references to the town I live in, and her user name ended in "101". And, over the radio, I hear of an event somewhere - where some guy with the last name of a former gf - a very rare name - was speaking - maybe it was her father. (None of this, none of the gfs, are local, btw).
So, I am apparently being presented with a review of my stupid life, and may soon be gobbled up by the turkey of death. It's not inconceivable. My health sucks. My situation is highly vulnerable. Crazy teabaggers want to kill me. So do relatives. So does the crazy gay guy on the corner - esp. when the ComGard guy takes away "his" vacant lot.
And the other day I go and do the "Buddy Man" LJ voice post, and then find out that there was a LJ user named "BuddyMan" - who committed suicide on LJ.
Oh well, I laugh this off. But I try to notice everything, just in case. For example, my dog likes to walk around at night with a meat cleaver but it's only because I don't feed him enough.
Well - more realisations: YOU. So many of my LJ friends are reaching epiphanies lately. Throwing out recent boyfriends. Reflecting on their lives. Concluding they have been jerks, irresponsible, or spoiled in the past - and now they're trying to change. Kudos! (But we all know it's cuz you read Madman101)... I always like trying to spot trends on LJ... it may reflect what's happening to the nation. We are certainly living in a time of transition, and yet a very confusing and troubling time.
*** BTW: The "emoticon stats": What ever happened to that LJ graph which showed what moods ALL LJ users are showing, day-to-day? Does anyone have a link to that???
Out there: So, we have Republicans and teabaggers constantly screaming "NO!" and spreading the lie that "EVERYONE HATES THE HEALTH-CARE BILL!", nibbling and nibbling away, determined to "BREAK" the "House Nigger" and to "MAKE IT HIS WATERLOO!" - with the Democrats spending a YEAR giving these A-holes every concession, until the HEALTH CARE BILL has all the good things like a PUBLIC OPTION REMOVED, and all the pro-corporate things INCREASED, until many liberals now find the bill insulting - and LOOK: Whereas 70-75% of the public once SUPPORTED the bill (w/Public Option), NOW a poll shows that a MAJORITY of the public DISLIKES THE BILL! And so now the Republicans are crying that the Democrats are "FORCING THINGS DOWN AMERICA'S THROAT!" It's insane.
There is violence, vandalism, hatred, etc. Rabid teabaggers are like little irritating emoticons, whipped up by GLOATING CORPORATE CEOs, unaware that they are indeed brain-dead avatars. A recent viral video has some southern lady blaming the Republicans for not STOPPING the Democrats from giving her health care! Say WUT?! So - look at this: With all the old Republicans and teabaggers stonewalling and saying "NO!" to everything... AND SUCCEEDING... (Insurance/Hospital/Pharma stocks are all going UP!)...
How vulnerable are we becoming to being manipulated by some young, handsome, angry Hitler-type dude coming out of nowhere and uniting all of this - and more - into a "viable", sexy FASCIST revolution? (How easy would it become for people to say NO! and go to war with China! To say NO! and drop the A-Bomb?) Well, it may still sound silly at the moment - but not when you consider: that the SECOND, more serious, plunge of the depression is coming. WORSE TIMES ARE COMING. People lose memory and conscience when confronted with mass homelessness and such. And they like to turn into mobs who enjoy killing lots and lots of people. Same old same old.
I'll do an American Idol post when my memory ability improves... I think I'll have to hold off going out and doing stuff one more day....!!!!! Got a knock on the door from the gas company - spent some time talking to this chick who was being nice. But it COULD have been Hitler. So I just sat on the steps all relieved ha ha ha... She didn't even notice that my ghost girlfriend was sitting next to me, gettin it oooooooonnnn!
