My Heart Will Go On
No one has ever told me I look like a celebrity, ever. I always get "you look like my friend, cousin, etc." real-life people. So, I think it's very bizarre that in the last week I got two different celeb comparisons. I think this second one is definitely closer than J. Lo! On Saturday I met my friend at the bar, she was there with a few of her friends that I had never met before. After we had been hanging out for a bit, one of the friends turns to me and goes "do you know who you look like? It was the first thing I thought of when you walked in the bar. Kate Winslet." I wish I had Depp and DiCaprio on my list of hot guys I made out with…

It's THAT time of year again
OK, I know it’s not even Thanksgiving yet but I don’t even like Thanksgiving that much (might be the whole I’m a vegetarian and don’t care for football thing) and you do need to start getting ready for Christmas waaaaaay before December. Normally, I start buying people little Christmas presents as early as the summer so I don’t have to spend too much money all at once. And, last minute shopping is not my cup of tea. I nearly go berserk waiting in line to purchase things (why should I have to wait on line to give YOU money). So, I realized about a week ago that I better get my ass in gear because I had not purchased one single gift so far. Now, a week later I am finished shopping for my mom (Golden Girls on DVD seasons 1-3) and got some stuff for the rest of my family and friends; all of it purchased online! My favorite site is overstock.com since everything is priced really well & the shipping is very minimal (which is why I hate ordering things, shipping is usually outrageous). My brother has informed me that overstock.com is the devil so it’s a good thing we have Santa to counteract my badness… or what was that about Santa spelling out Satan…
So I guess I really have no point with this whole blurb except to inform you that I have started Christmas shopping, have not yet stepped foot in a store (though it will happen, I promise) and if you want something in particular for Christmas, comment now or forever hold your peace!

Army of Trent
Remember when Trent Reznor was a nice little boy with long stringy gorgeous black hair a fragile physique but a killer, angry voice? Well, he shaved his head, got JACKED and now looks like he just left the Marine Corp. But damn that boy can still sing.
The show at Madison Square Garden last night was phenomenal. I was lucky enough to score a floor GA ticket and was standing next to the stage for the whole show. Trent sweated his heart out (literally) as he took us through bad ass old school songs like “Head Like a Hole” and “Wish” to the ballads, “Hurt” and “Something I Could Never Have” to the new stuff “The Hand That Feeds” and “You Know What You Are?”
The stage looked amazing with crazy colored lights and hanging bars that looked like the random setting on a treadmill (the bars going up & down). At one point during the show a huge piece of glittery material covered the stage and images were projected onto it of horrors and then George W. dancing. But the most entertaining part of the show was Trent’s guitar player. This guy was CRAZY! It was hard to tell how he was even playing guitar because he kept flinging it around his body and the stage posing maniacally. I really can’t even describe how insane this guy was with his guitar but I strongly urge everyone to find him and watch him play guitar, AMAZING! Throughout the show he knocked over amps and threw his mic in between back-up singing and the guitar antics.
After almost 2 hours of playing NIN thanked the crowd, trashed their equipment and left for the night, no encore. Now I just have to recover my hearing and it’ll be all good. Thanks Trent, I needed that.
