There is nothing more gratifying
than knowing some sad fucker is so obsessed with me that they would go to such elaborate lengths to try to harrass me. Over the Internet, of course. It never seems to happen in person. Which is a shame.

What's your favorite thing to do at the beach?
Stay in the waves. I love swimming, but I can’t stand getting out of the water. I start itching. And then you add in sand at the beach and it sticks to me. Hate it. Ask me a question. Tell me a secret.

I’d like to go to the Mediterranean area. Great food and I could chill on a boat in the sea and stuff. But I don’t fly, so I’d have to take a boat. Ask me a question. Tell me a secret.

Favorite non-Counting Crows record? “Being There” by Wilco. Not only is it a 2-disc masterpiece, but they gave up money in order to sell it at the price of a single album. Ask me a question. Tell me a secret.

I’ve been sitting in my bedroom all morning singing “Like a good neighbor, State Farm is there.” and asking for things: donuts, a pizza, a new guitar, Kate Middleton in a raincoat and thigh high boots, etc. And what have I received? Nothing. Absolutely nothing. Has this happened to you? If so, join me in the fight against State Farm and the false hope their...

eLeCTRIC PENCILS: R.E.M. →
maddiehope: electricpencils: I’ve been listening to a lot of R.E.M. lately. Old R.E.M. And when I say old, I don’t mean OUT OF TIME, but MURMUR and RECKONING. It feels like the appreciation for that band is somehow lost now. People identify them as “the ‘Losing My Religion’ band” and that’s a shame, because while that is a… Maybe my experience is different because I live in REM’s home...

Saw Mood Disorder Specialist who thinks some meds...
I don’t think my creative ability is hindered by meds. I was on them in college and I was pretty productive. And on the other side, not being on them tends to make me less focused, so I produce less. In the end, for me, it’s a matter of me focusing and creating, regardless of whether I’m on meds or not. Ask me a question. Tell me a secret.
I don't know what to do right now, at this moment
I was hanging out at my cousin’s house, and out of nowhere, she says, “So do you know about Bryan?” Bryan is an old friend. He’s a few years older than me. He grew up on the same street that my grandparents lived on when I was a kid. Many, many years later, after my divorce, we became part of what we jokingly called “The Porterhouse Mafia,” which was four guys...
I believe in yesterdays
Derek and I headed to Fayetteville yesterday for the promise of a baseball game and a show. First thing into town, and we headed to Burger Life, which may be the single greatest culinary destination in the history of mankind. After lunch, we had a couple of hours to kill, so we ended up watching ARTHUR, as it was the only movie whose beginning we hadn’t missed. I’m a little ashamed to...

Anonymous asked: Really more of a thank you, Son of the Sun = Awesome! We meet @ SXSW which I'm sure is mostly a blur but I host house concerts in San Antonio. Kole Hansen is playing here in Nov.

The fact that you thought that was Derek might...
I knew it wasn’t Derek. That’s why it’s funny. Ask me a question. Tell me a secret.
I like you. That's not really a secret though...

Paste's Top 30 Wilco Songs →
undsiewar: electricpencils: I think they got the top of the order right, although “Misunderstood” is my favorite Wilco song. I’d probably replace some of the newer songs with older songs, and I don’t remember seeing “Box Full of Letters.” Also, not sure I’d put the Mermaid Ave. songs on there, since they’re kind of covers. this list disappoints me. he chose thirty of the most likeable or...

Like 5 minutes after I made that last post, I see on Twitter than I’m featured on the Boy George Daily, which is an Internet “newspaper” culled from a persons Twitter follows, in this case, Boy George’s. This has happened to me once before, with the EP shirts post, I was on the Joe Rogan Daily, but that’s because Adam had RT’d my post and Joe follows him. So, I...
Do men have a biological clock?
So, I keep having dreams that I have a kid or am about to have a kid. I have to think that this is partly do to the fact that I know 3 people who have either just had a baby or are having a baby tomorrow. All of which are younger than me. Sometimes in the dream, I’m with my ex. Once I was even with my ex-wife. Usually, I’m not with anyone, and I just somehow have a baby, or I’m...
Done and done
I went in to work today. I did not stay the full shift. So if you had Easter in the “Quit Pool” congratulations! Also, Cort and Jillian asked if I would be Pot Roast’s godfather. I said yes and tried not to cry. I’ll do that now that we’re not on the phone. (Yes, I’m calling their baby Pot Roast. I don’t remember how it started, but it stuck.)

Who says the economy isn't booming
So, last month, in this pretty small fucking town, they opened a 5th Chinese restaurant. A few days ago, they opened a Little Ceasar’s Pizza. Keep in mind that in this pretty small fucking town, we already have Pizza Slut, Mazzio’s, Domino’s, Pizza by Manooch, Sam & Ella’s, and Simple Simon’s. Anyway, I decided to go to Little Ceasar’s because what...
I was just informed The Whigs are playing at George’s Majestic on Tuesday. I think that’s my huckleberry.
One more time
I made it through the day without walking out. It’s getting harder and harder, knowing I already have another job waiting and hating that place as much as I do. Two weeks from tomorrow, I’ll be at Wilco. Still no one to be my “plus one.” It’s a little disheartening. I’m off Monday-Tuesday. I was trying to find a road trip withing 5-7 hours from here, like a...
You know the best thing about being a fuck-up?
All the people who try to convince you that you are not, in fact, a fuck-up. I’m using the word “best” facetiously.
Know how you can tell if you're a fuck-up?
People congratulate you for doing things that normal people do all the time. “Hey, good job not going to jail last week.” That kind of thing. Or “Congrats on not getting fired from that job.” I’m pretty secure in my place on the Mt. Rushmore of Fuck-Ups in my little corner of the world. I am the Abraham Goddamn Lincoln of Fuck-Ups.

Two Weeks Notice
is a terrible movie, but it’s a great thing to give your job. I found out this afternoon that I got the job at the newspaper. I’m pretty excited. More money, better hours and a set schedule. There are a few people at my old job I’ll miss, but I’ll still be hanging out with my real friends from there, so it’s not a big deal.
I'll just talk about the highlights
I’m usually all about the jokes, but sometimes, I feel down and I’ll post it and I appreciate the support you guys throw my way. I think it’s only fair I give you some good things, too. Two days ago, I interviewed for a job and it went really well. More money, better hours in a set schedule, and one has to assume, less junior high drama than my current place of employment. I...
Just so you know...
I still don’t have a date for Wilco. I had some leads the other day, but nothing panned out. Scheduling and all that. It’s motherfucking WILCO.
I Do Really Well With Women
Jordan: Kasey, this is my friend Ella.
Me: Cool. Nice to meet you.
Me: I'm sorry, I kinda missed your name when Jordan said it.
Me: THAT'S MY CAT'S NAME!!!
Me: If you met my cat it'd be all, "Ella, Ella. Ella, Ella."
Me: I'll show you a picture!
Ella: Uh, that's okay.
Me: That is super fucked up.
Ella: I'm sorry.
Me: I should hope to shit shout you're sorry. She's an amazing person.
Ella: Your cat?
Me: YES. You look like the girl I went to junior prom with.
Me: She's polydactyl.
Ella: The girl you went to prom with?
Me: NO. MY CAT.
