another saturday night

so tonight i went to a bar in north beach that specializes in beer. during the course of the evening i said something about being able to blog drunk.

well, 3 hours later i'm on here and saying to all of you:
i can blog drunk.

I remember the first time i blogged drunk i was hanging out with a laptop upside down in a hallway.

now it's a lot more confortable sitaution. i should get back to the group.

Video Flashback: New Found Glory (first major album)

I've had my fair share of long distance relationships. One of the most intense was between 1999-2001. This song was on a CD that I played all the time, and this is definitely one of my favorite songs of all time.

I never saw the video for it til recently, and it has Rachel Leigh Cook in it!

You're not here
and I can't stop pretending that you're forever mine.
And I...

I can't dream anymore
Since You Left.

I miss you singing me to sleep (to sleep)
I can't wake anymore
In Your Arms.

I miss you singing me to sleep.

"Cheer up" my friends all say...
This band was one of the ones that influenced my bass style.

And here was the song that made me fall in love with them. I actually watched this video to study the bassist's style (especially how to jump around with a bass on)

Have I waited too long?
Have I found that someone?
Have I waited to long
to see you?

a 'cherry chapstick' wtf.

kat: hey candice....
me: waddup daaaaaaawg
kat: I'm putting on my cherry chapstick
me: if your'e hitting on me
kat: are you Katy Perry for me?
me: ..........
me: *cries*
kat: just making sure.
kat: As long as that's still your reaction, we're friends.
kat: This was a test.
kat: I have to know who I can trust now that I'm single Candice.

When the hell did "katy perry" become an adjective? Or is it a verb?
and if i was gonna be tested, i'd prefer it not give me a heart attack. thanks.

emperor's new groove, classic clip

He's going to lead you down the path of righteousness. I'm going to lead you down the path that ROCKS.

Frame of reference:
my friend Matt is not only a great co-worker here but he's also a model. He appeared here today:

So I chatted him up about it.

Matt: word

me: you awesome bud
Matt: i'm stoked
me: how do *I* become a male model
Matt: start by becoming a male?
candice: shit!
Matt Maimoni: go go gadget sex change

I actually cooked tonight

I call it the "whatever i had in my fridge" meal.


"Starch": Quinoa (i just killed my first box, I'm officially a fan of the stuff)
Cook like rice on the stove.

Main Dish:
1. Fresh cut asparagus
2. Frozen beans & carrots
3. Trader Joe's frozen mandarin chicken, minus the sauce.
4. Olive oil
5. Fresh cut garlic
6. Aloha Shoyu
Fry all together in the olive oil, starting with some garlic, then the frozen chicken. When that thaws out a bit put the frozen veggies in. When that starts getting soft toss the asparagus and the rest of the garlic (and more olive oil) in.
Fry until it looks good enough to eat. (you can see i'm a cook)

that red spice japanese stuff. hell if i know what it's called.
edit: bernadette so kindly let me know it's called "Shichimi"
nori + sesame seeds
Aloha Shoyu.

It will also be lunch tomorrow.

Oh and I forgot the key component:
2 glasses of my roommate's wine. Not in the meal, just during cooking and consumption. That's the real reason why i'm blogging now.

Music: Mayday Parade

Yet another band I discovered on Pandora. They kept suggesting songs for me & when I walked into Virgin Megastore (which is closing in April..*sadface*)

I saw their CD on sale so i grabbed it.

Just like Boys Like Girls previously (well, nowhere near as bad. Read here), I'm starting to really get attached to these guy's works.

I might be partial to this one just because it mentions "Begging for money to get home..well at least San Francisco"

However, I didn't pick up the album that has the song I really wanted:

Which is one of the best songs I've heard in a long time. I actually tried to both of these songs but they're not linked yet.. =*( disappointed.

Support Non-Human Rights

Viral campaigns interest me.

This new untitled movie (Something about District 9, or D-9) has slowly been releasing propaganda for the last year.

I saw an ad on facebook that said "Keep this site non-human free" and at first I thought it was Star Trek.

after some serious searching i found these:
MNU Spreads Lies
the MNU

This is pretty neat. I haven't been part of a viral campaign from the beginning in a long time. I'm interested to see how this one pans out.

Background: a team moved floors.
Overheard right behind me a few seconds ago:

S: ...and where do I put this paperwork now?
M: Right here.
S: ...and where is the candy now?
M: Right here.

some random drunk post

Here is what the situation is right now:
1. Stomach is full of a burger from Q.
2. Joining the burger is half a half pitcher of sangria (a fourth? Is that like a forty?)
3. Chilling out with the laptop warming my legs.
4. Looking up emo songs on youtube.
5. The weird pictures that people put to emo songs in videos is making me wonder. Wondering what I would be wearing if i was in high school right now. you know what pisses me off just a little bit? the grade school kids that would laugh or be afraid of me in my black lipstick and red hair and vinyl pants and chains and trenchcoats are now the emo kids that feel that the world "doesn't get them" and the need to "cut myself". shut up. just because your mom didn't let you borrow the prius to go to the mall and act like you don't like chain restaurants doesn't give you the right to cut yourself.
6. Hello. how are you?
7. All in all happy. Just a little ranty and self reflecty. Speaking of which, are we really supposed to believe Medusa NEVER saw her reflection? Really? Like noone else thought of that or she didn't accidentally walk by one or a puddle of water or something? really? serious? cmon let's be real.
8. On that topic, what the fuck was Oedipus thinking?! If someone told me my fate was to kill my father and sleep with my mother I sure as HELL would not be killing ANYONE old enough to be my father and i sure as FUCK would not be sleeping with ANYONE who was older than me. AT ALL. Just to be safe.

Okay done. Randomness over. I think.

Cool vision of the future

<a href="" target="_new" title="Future Vision Montage">Video: Future Vision Montage</a>

Now the thing that freaks me out about this is that I remember feeling like "how the hell is that even possible" or "No way" or "That SOUNDS cool but itll never be reasonably priced"

Well, remember this?

I had the same feelings about those videos, and they've all come true. My apple iPOd Touch can do most of that.
And that was only like 15 years ago, can you imagine what kinda awesome toys we'll have 10 years from now?

If the robots don't take over before then....

Star Wars A Capella Tribute

...You know, I've geeked out all weekend, why not put this up.

This is pretty amazing. And he's cute. And he's got like 4 different geek shirts.

Wondercon: Day 3, "Once More with Feeling"

Buffy The Musical

Ah, all good things have to come to an end. Seriously, this was one of the best weekends I've had in a long long time.

As I had anticipated, today was a more laid back day. Like most people come on it was hella crowded yesterday, and today was kinda that day where you're like "Sure, I'll go pick up that comic book I was debating on getting all weekend."

I brought my comic book that I had at home so that David Mack could sign it. I ended up seeing a piece of his in one of his reflections books & asked him if he had it (If i had that one, I'd have the whole set of Echo Prints my knowledge). And he had ONE left. Awesome.

With the laid-backness I was able to actually go to a panel. Which is awesome 'cause I really wanted to see Chuck! The castmembers were so funny & you could tell they really liked working together.

The day seemed to go by quickly, as I tried to help my friend find a copy of "The Watchmen" graphic novel (kinda impossible unless you wanted a nice rare copy)...

I also got to see the last few minutes of a panel about Harper's Island, which sounds fun. It's a show that lasts 13 episodes, and you know that everyone's going to die. The actors didn't even know when they were filming how long they're going to last. Either way, I got to see Christopher Gorham, who played Jake in Jake 2.0 & Henry in Ugly Betty. Hawt dork.

The night ended with a musical. Buffy the Musical, to be exact. It was awesome, I was in this room with a mix of Buffy Enthusiasts and people who had never seen the episode before. To be fair, I only saw it for the first time last week (in preparation for tonight...yeah, seriously, i prepared for wondercon).

The episode's named "Once More, With Feeling". It's pretty entertaining, I suggest you check it out if you have the means.

Either way, the con ended at 5 =( I actually didn't want it to end! I have to admit, I am pretty flabbergasted by how much fun I actually had. And get this: I didn't drink all weekend.

Seriously. It's like, I can replace alcohol with geekdom. Oh and geek boys. Lots and lots of cute geek boys. Yay.

You know, i should just name this blog "Wondercon and the stuff I do in between Wondercons"
