Coffee Bullets, aka Naming Things is Hard

Someday I’ll have a good name for this thing where I just throw out random thoughts in bullet-point fashion.  We’ll see.

  • I’ve always approved of Aaron Sorkin’s work overall.  Sports Night is one of my favorite all-time shows.  He’s always been a bit of a haughty dipshit, but never enough to turn me off completely.  Having said that, Newsroom is some haughty dipshit-ism to an extreme.  To describe America’s past as “better” in a cut-and-dry fashion is ignorant to an extreme I can’t abide by.  Such a fondness for the past is OK; but don’t forget all the other problems 
  • I listened to Rollins’ Band “Weight” yesterday.  I sort of want to lift weights and punch things now.
  • I’ve traditionally been lukewarm on Starbucks, but I’ve discovered their Blonde roast and I’m in love.  Never really liked light breakfast blends before, but this one is simply amazing.  I got K-Cups for it and everything.  I’m such a consumerist worm sometimes.
  • I’m currently working on material for some sort of stand-up comedy experiment.  I need to figure out what to channel on-stage.  I want to be myself; I feel that’s paramount to being interesting, original, and trusted on-stage.  But what part of me do I want to channel?  Self-loathing?  Goofy?  Political?  Nerdy?  I need to start, because I think the experimentation will be the most fulfilling part of this.
  • I’ve discovered a term: Music Isolationist.  This is something I am.  I don’t listen to radio or MTV, so I’m often ignorant (blissfully, might I add) of new hit songs until someone’s staring at me blankly as if I should know what I’m listening to.  I only listen to music I happen upon through Pandora, or the occasional sincere recommendation from a trusted friend.  It’s like I run an exclusive club, of which only the finest musical acts are allowed entrance into my cerebellum.  Okay, that’s a grandiose metaphor, but I like the idea of manipulating a velvet rope of particular importance.
  • At the Drive-In is keen.
  • So I just noticed on my Google Music app that there’s a thumbs-up/thumbs-down selection.  Why would this exist?  If I didn’t like a song why would I have added it to my library?  Why would I add a song only to give it a thumbs-down?  Is this for masochists?

Check back tomorrow, when there may be an update.  Or not.
