. . . And now the unimportant news

What a Google search for 'Two Men Enter, One Man Leaves' yielded.I haven't really posted one of my pop-culture-y catchalls in quite some time, so I thought I'd tell you what's shakin' my bananas and dingin' on my radar.

First of all,
Veronica Mars has only been picked up for 13 episodes by the CW network, and there's a change in format. While I understand the desire to grow your audience base, I hope this season's "three mystery" format doesn't detract from the drama that an entire season of one mystery builds. Oh, and if you're not watching this show, start. I'm getting Season 1 disc 1 in the mail tomorrow and I'm convinced I'll have the roomies--or at least Matt--hooked. <via Seattle P-I>

Since I'm talkin' TV, thought I'd point you to an article in Out magazine which features the oh-so-deamy Jamie Bamber. It's kind of about 'mos in space, but, like much in the queer media, it ends up talking about nothing. Queers should have written for Seinfeld. <via Jimbo>



Oh, and you can officially throw out all of your hemp clothing--or smoke it or whatever--cuz the future is here. A soft fabric that is anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, and anti-static. It raises your core temperature in the cold months and cools you in the summer. It is biodegradable and sustainable. What is it, you ask? It's bamboo--and Bam Clothing is among the first to offer this great new product. <via CoolHunting>

And you want to know what music I've been listening to?
Various Production's first long-player, The World is Gone might just be the second best album I've heard this side of Booka Shade's Movements. It is a gorgeous album that hops genres convincingly.
Monolake's new 12" Alaska/Melting is my. type. of. music. Propulsive, skittery, moody, and highly dancable (and those bass lines--yum!). Expect to see both A and B sides get WORKED (as is often the case with Monolake tracks).
And, of course,
Junior Boys new album is all-up-in-it, yo! So This Is Goodbye just might be perfect. I had hoped (lord, how I hoped) that they wouldn't let me down--and they didn't. You can check out the first single on their MySpace page. I guess the remixes for this single are by Morgan Geist and Alex Smoke. Can't wait to hear Geist's take--especially after his work with Greenspan for "Most of All." At this point in time, this is my album of the year--you'll have to wait until August 17th to buy it.

And, in even less important news, I got a promotion. After a grueling 3-week long interview process, a co-worker and I Thunderdomed it, and I somehow ended up on top (puh-leeze, gurl, why you snickerin' 'bout me bein' on top?). So, yay me! And now my hours are even crappier--midnight til 8:30A. Boo!

Nope, still no happy hour for me. See, work from midnight til 8:30 means gym til 10:30. Home by 11:15. Asleep (in a perfect world) by 12:15, then sleep til 8:15 just to do it all over again.
No rest for the wicked.
