I Hate My Life Right Now

Arrrghhh I can't fix my Common Application essay for the life of me and time is running out so fast. I'm seriously going to die. This is so not cool. I don't know ANYONE else that has this much trouble writing a goddamn essay. I hate essays. They should all die. All of them.

I don't even feel better after that rant. That's how bad it is.

And I got one point less on my ACT score from the first time I took it. After having Princeton Review tutoring. Which is expensive as fuck.

So yeah. Life sort of suck right now.

But there is at least one bright light. I just discovered what the hell a Feed is (yeah, yeah, I'm slow) and then I discovered Google Reader which is pretty much amazing. No more obsessively checking all of my favorite websites for updates! Now all just obsessively check one website. Get one like now if you haven't already:

I'll just go and scream at the top of my lungs now. Don't mind me.

Janice Dickinson is One Crazy Bitch

The Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency is one of the best shows on TV right now. Seriously, honestly, I swear I'm not kidding. It's so goddamn entertaining, and it actually seems legitimate because the models get real jobs. It is a modeling agency after all. So that takes away the whole what's-the-point-they-won't-be-successful-anyway factor of shows like America's Next Top Model. The clients in this case use the show as advertisement (Aussie Bum got some attention this way last year. Yes that's a real company- an underwear company no less) so it works both for the companies and the models- and thereby the legitimacy of the show. Plus Janice is just apeshit insane and will make drama out of absolutely nothing. And I love it! Even though her face scares the crap out of me...

The sad thing is that most people don't know about this show because it's on the freakin' Oxygen chanel, which everyone knows is for old ladies and housewives. Heck, the only reason I know about the show is that my brother's ex-girlfriend was watching it last season. Well anyway, here's a funny clip from the crazy Aussie Bum episode [sort of NSFW- dudes in underwear], with guest appearance by none other than Perez Hilton:

Rush Limbaugh Needs to STFU

From HuffPo. His words:

It's like almost an addiction that some people have to what I call the perfection that Hollywood presents of successful, beautiful, fun-loving people. So the question is this: Will this country want to actually watch a woman get older before their eyes on a daily basis?

What a douche. We've watched male leaders age since the Revolutionary War, why can't we watch a female now? I'm very undecided between Obama and Hillary - they both have so many pros and cons - but this makes me support Hillary a little more than before. Obviously what this country needs is a woman in control to give it a big ass-whooping.

Santa's Got a Gun

So, this is probably a good time to announce... I am an avid fan of the Killers. Like, to an obsessive degree. Okay, not OBSESSIVE, you see I pride myself too much to resort to desperate fangirly ways. But I am definitely more interested in the band members than is healthy. Definitely. And I will be totally upfront- if you just rolled your eyes when you read that I like the Killers then you can leave right now, because this right hurr is no place for indie snobs. I have grown to love this band since the first time I heard Somebody Told Me in the summer before 9th grade in Israel (I'm a senior now). Back then I listened to horrible top 40 music that I don't even want to talk about, but the Killers steered me clear from that direction and introduced me to the world of good music. And I will be forever grateful. But I won't get all sappy now, there's plenty of time for that later!

The point of this post- I swear there is one- is that The Killers have recently released their second Christmas single, with one of the most awesome names possible- "Don't Shoot Me Santa." The snobs over at Stereogum cried over the fact that a comma is missing from the title but I won't even lower myself to that pitiful level. No no, not me. So here you go, a fucking hilarious video from the Killers:

Notable moments:

-"A bullet in your what?!"
-Cute little dance at 3:10
-Bflow's crazy eye movement at the "whoo!" part at 3:14

And the live version, from KROQ Almost Acoustic Christmas:

Aaahahaa nice dance.

If you like, go over to iTunes and buy the song and video because all proceeds go to the RED campaign. That's right, ALL proceeds- 100%- even the portion that Apple usually keeps for itself. Now go and do some good!

Valley Girl

It is damn cold outside. Like, a biting kind of cold. In Los Angeles! I mean it is December, but this is Los Angeles. If I want to go to college in the East Coast, I better get used to this. You see I like the idea of cold, but then when I actually experience it, it's not so nice.

So I decided to finally start a blog.

My brother has been pushing me to do it for a long time now. I was a little afraid because anyone can see it... but ah, what the heck. I need a way to express my opinions without annoying everyone around me. Now I will annoy random internet people instead. Or no one, depending on how popular this blog gets. I predict: not very much. It's good to have low expectations.

So some things the most likely non existent reader should now about me and my plans for this blog:

-I am a teenager in the San Fernando Valley in Los Angeles. Yes, The Valley. I swear the stereotypes aren't true, we don't say "like" all the time. But we do enjoy the mall, possibly a little too much...

-I plan to discuss anything and everything in this blog. That includes music (good and bad), indie snobs (boo), hipsters (ha), fashion (high-end and not), celebrities, TV, movies, Youtube videos, politics (not as boring as you might think), food, annoying people, funny pictures, interesting events, school, the hell that is the college applications process, etc etc etc. I have many different interests. Bear with me.

-You may have realized that I am a senior applying to colleges. This is true, and today I actually took my last standardized test ever. As in college standardized test. No more SAT's- YES. I might have felt better if I thought I did well but, frankly, I don't feel that way. Please God I need a miracle...

-um by the way I'm not religious but I am Jewish (that makes sense, right?). I lived in Israel for 4 years (1st - 4th grade) and I visit almost every year. I am quite worldly you see...

This is not going to help my internet addiction in any way. Oh well- if you can't beat 'em, join 'em.
