Lol wut a Coldplay related post

I just emailed in for the free Apparatjik EP. (Apparatjik is a band with Coldplay's Guy Berryman on bass and some of the guys from a-ha.)

Time to get hooked on yet another band.... Neon Trees, I took a bite of your heart. Phoenix, you gave me Lisztomania and the only cure is more cowbell love potion #1901. Now it's time for this Chrissygirl to join the army of Berrygirls... undercover.

UPDATE: Hrrrm... it won't open on my computer for some odd reason... maybe they know I'm a Chrissygirl?!
UPDATE #2: Hooray! It opened! Time to listen to the mutant love child of Coldplay and a-ha!
UPDATE #3: Hoo boy, this is bizarre. It's psychedelic and punky, as if a-ha, Coldplay, and Green Day had a love child. O_o

Take a bite of my heart tonight.

Aaahh.. Memorial Day weekend. A time to relax, get away from school, and go down to Connecticut. That's exactly what I did. Down in Mystic, CT, right outside of Mohegan Sun.

Highlights from my trippy trip:

• Mohegan Sun. Nothing's better than drinking a black and white milkshake at Bobby's Burger Palace, eating Pepe's pizza while jamming out to the Robot Unicorn Attack song, or spending $20 on kiddie arcade tokens and winning a SpongeBob sweatband, CSI Miami sunglasses, vampire teeth, and a skull ring. Nothing at all.
Shrek Forever After, aka Shrek: The Final Chapter. A fantastic conclusion to a cash cow series that I find consistently funny and enjoyable. Plus, it has a giant fat Puss in Boots, an ogre resistance, and RUMPLESTILTSKIN. Holy shit, was Rumplestiltskin a brilliant character in this movie. He's bizarre, crafty, fashionable, power-hungry, commands an army of witches and hires the bounty hunter Pied Piper to pipe the ogres into oblivion!
Iron Man 2 was chaotic, explosive and full of Robert Downey, Jr. goodness. Also featuring Mrs. Chris Martin as herself (minus Chrissy,) Scarlett Johannsson as a ninja, Mickey Rourke as a male Irina Spalko (you know, from Indiana Jones 4) with electric whip arms, and lots and lots of robots.
• Mystic Disc. A record store in Mystic that happens to be owned by two very awesome hipsters who understand me and my love of pop culture. They really liked my charisma and knowledge of trivial and non-trivial things in the music world. I'm officially one of their bros.

• The Book and Tackle Shop in Watch Hill, RI. A antique and used bookstore owned by a kindly older woman who used to live in Boston, the store literally made my day simply because they had a first edition copy of "The Search Beneath The Sea" by J.L.B. Smith (the guy who discovered the coelacanth) on sale... for $35. (Unfortunately I didn't have enough money....)
• CeeCee's of Mystic. A jewelry store owned by a nice woman and her 10 year old son... who both LOVE COLDPLAY AS MUCH AS I DO. They blasted Viva La Vida in the store and let me sing along. Life is good, indeed.
• Tap Tap Revenge 3: Boost. I am officially addicted to this iPhone game which most people have. I'm beast at so many tracks, yo. Especially Animal by Neon Trees and Diary by Tino Coury.
• The "SNL in the 2000's" retrospective. I managed to catch a repeat of this recently-aired documentary chronicling the past 10 years of SNL. It featured the stories behind "Lazy Sunday" (THE CHRONIC-WHAT-CLES OF NARNIA!!!) "Laser Cats," "D*ck in a Box," "Debbie Downer," and all the other fantastic sketches over the years. Best of all, it used clips from musical guests over the past 10 years, and guess what they saved for last? Yep, Viva La Vida by Coldplay.

(no subject)

So, yeah. Life is life is life. I've been meaning to do something on here. Maybe write chapter 11 of ASPOF. Maybe just chill and post nonsense. Maybe write more fake Coldplay lyrics or sonnets. Perhaps write more reviews of stuff I've seen. Maybe rant about shit. Do some crazy-ass things. There's a bit of a mental block right now. I'm not so sure why I'm posting this, but goddamnit I'm trying.

So, dear readers, comment. Ask me anything. I have a Formspring.

Friend me on Facebook.

Send me MP3s of all the Coldplay B-sides that aren't "Lost?".

Just talk to me, I'll listen.
I'm a good girl. Gone bad? I don't know.

Maybe I should write more poetry.

I really don't have a clue what I'm doing right now. Avoiding homework? Yesh.

Viva La Vida.

Today was fruitful.

I love my school library. They let me rip up their old issues of Rolling Stone, and I found some great stuff.

I found an article about Coldplay on tour.
I found an ADORABLE picture of Chrissy in a rocketship. (I can't find it online... :( ) I also found a cute pic of the boys and Jay-Z hugging. It was nice.
