What the Fuck Should I Do Tonight: Fuck Off, I Don't Fucking Know Edition!

Hola, lovers! 

I had surgery yesterday and I feel terrible and also the various drugs they have given me to stave off infection and pain are making me both sick and high as a goddam kite, and it sucks. I can't focus on anything. Also my hands feel like rubber, I usually type over 80wpm and right now it's like dragging my stupid leaden paws through a bucket of mud with a molasses float. 

 Same.

Same.

So you get nothing from me. NOTHING. Maybe tomorrow. Gimme a goddam break for once. 

I did, however, collect some good shit from around the Information Superhighway for you to enjoy in my absence:

Check out this essay on how Beck changed the landscape of popular music (and what that meant to her) that DJ and Producer (also my world-class bestie) Alisa Ali wrote for WFUV in NYC.

Watch this awesome video of Kurt Vonnegut showing us the visual shape of a well-told story:

You should also go watch this hilarious video of one of the first interactive porn software programs that someone found on an old mac from the 80's. The best part is when she goes through all the 8 bit vibrators and butt plugs. 

Go listen to Kafari's weird new album. It's the bee's tits, or whatever that saying is. 

Why haven't you gone to look at my funny local musician gifs yet, you big lazy grimace?

 things are happening. 

things are happening. 

The Beyond Yacht Rock podcast has been doing a series on songwriters like Diane Warren and Desmond Child that has been shattering everything I thought I knew about popular music. Their Prince episode is pretty amazing - he used the most hilarious pen names to write songs for other people. Joey Coco? Alexander Nevermind? YES. 

And finally, go amuse yourself with this listicle from McSweeney's that tells you what your favorite 80's band says about you. I've read this maybe 20 times, and every time I laugh out loud. A lot. We have fun, huh. 

Hey send me wishes to feel better in the comments or something so I can feel like I have a friend for one bleak moment. Or whatever, get out of here already.  

 Me at the oral surgeon yesterday.

I LOVE YOU DON'T DRINK AND DRIVE, ASSHOLES. 

XOXO,
