Those are the people who did not amount to much at all

Since this laptop (and PC monitor) doesn’t have a proper sound card, I can only hear stuff via headphones. This means my ears get sore after awhile – mostly because I’ve taken up the habit of listening to the radio online.

You know how in Madonna’s “Give It 2 Me”, Pharrell sings to the left, to the right? And the lyrics go with what ear you’re supposed to hear it through?

I’ve been wearing these damn headphones backwards all this time. And I’ve even heard the same song through the headphones before today, and I never picked up that I was wearing them incorrectly.

I can is made of slow and stoopid.

And for the record, I checked the headphones, and they have an L on the left, and an R on the right. I always check for these letters on my earbuds, but not these headphones. I’ve learned my lesson now.

Anyone else do anything stupid lately?

Never Underestimate the Value of Good Comedy
Yesterday I was in a real funk. You know something’s wrong when you find yourself watching Battle of the Choirs. I saw the last 30 minutes, and it really sucked. Kylie Minogue’s music is not made for choral groups. And they didn’t even sing her good songs, like “Confide in Me” and “2 Hearts”. Instead it was the clearly commercialised faff from Light Years and Fever. Eek.

I could’ve watched King of the Hill on another channel, but that show shites me. To me, there’s an unspoken rule that animated prime-time shows should be humorous. KOTH claims to be a comedy, but is really unfunny. Seriously, does not work for me.

But I cheered right up with Family Guy and American Dad! Love those shows; they totally make my day. I even remembered to watch Flight of the Conchords, which was also good fun. I remember back in the days of the late ’90s/early ’00s when the duo was on Stand Up! every week. They weren’t that funny then. But I think now that their songs have context, I like them much more. Because they’re no longer just musical comedians – they’re characters. I appreciated Lano & Woodley more with their TV show, and it must be the same here.

Take Smiles Where You Can Get Them
Was in the new Asian grocer today, and saw “extra fancy” rice and “power” cookies. Somehow those adjectives made them seem more appealing. Didn’t buy them, though I did smile.Those
