Feelings of emotion

Feet branch
This is about the most emo I've ever gotten. Thanks whoever dude you are that put that record up on the internet. I haven't had a copy in years.

Hopper sent me these pictures over AIM last night. They're from right around the time that we started being friends. I love them. It's crazy to me that Hopper and I have been friends for long enough to share nostalgia like this.
At a party, ca. 2002
This is me and Hops right after we met. I want to say it's at a party, but it sort of looks like her old bathroom. We were both working on developing new looks. What I thought I was accomplishing with that hairstyle has been lost to the mists of booze time.

County fair rejects
This is a little while after that. There was a summer where we basically dressed like the people that that freaked us out by at county fairs when we were younger. Sometime after we went to a Halloween party dressed as PJ Harvey and Marc Bolan, and didn't drop the look for a long time.

On the first episode they can make "squashed beef"

I know this is kind of a passive-aggressive way to go about this, but I'd just like to put it out there for anyone involved with EPMD in any way that every day that goes by without there being a cooking show called Erick and Parrish Making Dinner is a day that makes me wonder if life is even worth living.

Fucked amp
Due to some tangentially related losses (see above photo) and some bad direct experiences some acquaintances have gone through (see here), I have recently become concerned with backing up my hard drive. So I ask of you, geek friends who subscribe to this blog, help me figure out the best way to establish better backing-up habits.
Specifically, is there a program that will:
- Back up my files to an external HDD,
- In a way that is simple, ie minimal buttons to press
- That will allow me to keep files (music ones in particular) that I've deleted from my laptop from being overwritten on the external drive?
I think those are all of my requirements. What say you?

"Daddy, why does my room smell like the foul odor of phallic racism?"

At one point Amber started talking about black guys. "I wasn't thrilled," says Jeff. "Nope, wasn't a fan." But she persisted, and he decided to go along. "I like seeing Amber get off," he says with a shrug. "It excites the hell out of me. And it's better if they're black. All Amber wants is sex. Black guys get that. And I know that Amber would never date a black man."
Okay, tying up your non-traditional sex life with being a seemingly oblivious racist is one thing. The celebrated men of the Florida Mandingos seem fine with the deal as presented to them, and seem to get off on the race play just as much as the white people. I'm not cool with it, but this is still the America I believe in where willing people are allowed to fuck other willing people in any sort of combination they're all willing to handle.
But I do have a problem with this:
Jeff's casual bigotry aside, tonight's orgy is fairly typical. Amber's two boys, 11 and 13, have been shipped off to their grandparents' house, and their rooms have been suitably modified[.]
Unacceptable. I believe a lot in my fuck-friendly America, I also believe just as much as a thing called good taste. And hosting a racism/cuckolding-themed orgy in your kids' rooms absolutely crosses a line that should be obvious to anyone. Finding out that your parents host racist orgies in your room is the kind of thing that can easily turn a normal 13 year old kid into the kind of person who huffs brain-damaging chemicals and disembowels hookers. These people are, above all else, shitty at being parents.
Shining a flashlight underneath the 11-year-old's bed, he tuts and tsks. "There, look, a condom wrapper! I missed one of these once, and the kids found it. You know, I leave a trash can in every room, but still, some people . . ."
Those are not sentences that any person should ever say.

Rhiannon rings like a bell through the night / and wouldn't you love to check out her webcam!!11!!!

So a couple of months ago I got MySpaced by a fake Stevie Nicks profile, which I accepted because I really like Stevie Nicks, but then fake Stevie Nicks got her account hacked. So now I'm getting all of these porno spams from Stevie Nicks, which is kind of a weird thing to have happen to you, since it can change your perception of Stevie Nicks from "sexy coke-rock goddess" to "that person who doesn't know not to click on the 'Punch the clown and get a free iPhone' flash banners."

Jim Jones is the capo of "fug"

My hate/hate fascination with Jim Jones is still in full effect. Today I'm spending a lot of time obsessing over the fact that his fashion sense has at some point gone so fully wrong that he's starting to look like the Eurotrash dudes in my neighborhood. This is not the kind of shirt that looks good on anyone, unless he is gay, Italian, and living about four years ago. And even then it's only mildly acceptable.
It looks like Jimmy and Juelz both discovered some secret source for oversized, busted-ass-looking bootcut jeans. I hope for all of our sakes that they keep it a secret.
I am working all of this into a diss track for my new mixtape, Seriously You Guys Gotta Cut this Shit Out It's Really Bothering Me and a Lot of Other People. Free Don Cannon.

New on the internet

Krystal is my psychic twin/boo forever, and we get good ideas together. So we started a blog. It's called What the Fuck? and I picked out the URL for it, which is the best URL ever, pretty much.
Also, if you didn't know already, you can read my column online every Friday at this part of the Reader website.

There are 14 things in this article that are so ignorant that I had to scream at inanimate objects after reading them. Can you count them all?

Attention programmer nerds:

I need someone to write me a script or something that will sync up the new message alert beeps from Mail and iChat with whatever's playing on iTunes. I just had all my new email -- 384 press releases about the Lily Allen record, 1 about the Ying Yang Twins' upcoming tour -- pop in right on beat on "Over the Counter" from the Talib Kweli/Madlib record and it about blew my mind. If you want to get really fancy with it, could you add in a predictive feature that could make it so when the beep comes in on a rap song it happens when the beat drops? I can't imagine how impressed people visiting my apartment would be if I had that.
