Intersection Phil

Happy (kinda) Birthday QC!

My favorite webcomic, Questionable Content, will be 1,000 comics old tomorrow. That's a lotta comics! He's come a long way, both in content and artistic skill. Of course, there is always the "the bands I listen to are way more indy than your's" attitude. I love it.

I missed one!

Warn your hubby that after lovemaking in Ames, Iowa, he isn't allowed to take more than three gulps of beer while lying in bed with you—or holding you in his arms.

Okay! I'm signing the dang thing!

I guess Mark Hoppus has been hearing a ton of rumors about his band +44 breaking up. I guess it kind of makes sense, with Blink 182 breaking up two years ago, even though it is rumored that was due to Tom (who isn't in +44). To clear up any confusion, Mark has posted a picture of himself signing a contract with Interscope Records on his blog himynameismark. I guess that will put rumors to rest. Hopefully the new album is just as good as the last When your Heart Stops Beating.

I am excited for the next album. Oh, and the first single is out for Angels and Airwaves. It's pretty good. Their new album drops next week (11/1).

I found these whilst wandering the internets...

Here's a few sites that I found lately that I found interesting. First there is a guy who makes art sculptures out of odd things. The coat hanger guerilla is by far my favorite. Also, check out one of the smallest high quality cameras I've ever seen. Too bad it's just a prototype, but I feel less violated knowing that ;). Lastly, I know there are some strange laws out there, but these weird sex laws take the cake. Who knows if they are all true, but my favorite is still the following:

In Indiana, mustaches are illegal if the bearer has a "tendency to habitually kiss other humans."

Listening Heaven :)

The first iPod



Check out Steve Jobs' first presentation on the very first iPod. It's crazy to see how far we've come. From 5 gigs to over 80 gigs. I kind of wish I had one of those lil' guys.

Also, I didn't know that Apple invented firewire!

Recent Revelations

I learned a few things in the past few weeks:

  • I still cannot get out of bed before noon when I sleep at home
  • Dumbledore is gay
  • I miss MN more than I thought, especially the people
  • Ames sucks more than I thought
  • I guess I'm not horrible at interviews
  • I just want to graduate more than ever now
  • Stick to one drink, and not too much, or I become hungover
  • ISU has done me well
  • I would trade it all for love

WHAT?!

Silly Canadian government. For some reason they think that by taxing people a few cents for every digital download (of music), artists will be compensated for piracy. I think it's really stupid. If anything, it will drive more people to get music through non-legal means.

Does anybody recognize it?

Look what I found on PostSecret this morning.
