Argh, wrangling a link list, mostly because I have this dream of using this thing (the word "blog" continues to catch in my fingers like a fishbone in the throat if choking on a fishbone also brought on self-loathing) as sort of a personal aggregator- so I can look through it later and, in between the mortification at what an idiot I am/was/will have been (?), be like, oh yeah, I like that band and that video and that book. It's not complete or anything, but I was like, oh, I haven't checked Bad News Hughes in a while- only to go and see that he's stopped writing for the site, if only temporarily. The link stays, though, just to remind me every now and then to read through his old posts and maybe buy his book.
In addition, I'm linking to Kiss Machine because a) it is awesome and b) I owe it to Julia because of a hilarious story. I got home last night, late and drunk, and started talking to Jules online. Then, all of a sudden, it was 11 in the morning and I was waking up suddenly to find myself sitting in front of the computer, fully dressed, with one boot off. Apparently Julia started talking to me about Kiss Machine, which she works on, and the two days of not really sleeping just hit me and I passed out. But! If you've been living a good life and sleeping on occasion and doing all your chores, Kiss Machine will not suddenly put you to sleep.
