>no progress

>hello blog! check it out! a REAL blog post!

sorry about yesterday, but i had to post my 7NAP video, and i simply didn’t have any more time. i mean, BEDA has priority and everything, but 7NAP comes first.

and now for the music! just one long metaphor!
Hellogoodbye – Homewrecker by ChelseaIRL

why this song? other than the fact that it’s one long metaphor? because i love Hellogoodbye. and i love this song. and i danced to it (and the rest of the album) before going to sleep last night.

so, the plan for today was to go shopping for a car.

…well. we went shopping.

me and my mother hadn’t been to the Body Shop in at least a year. and there was a sale. so we got stuff. let me tell you blog, i smell really good. 🙂

i also got new blush. i needed some. so.

…you know, my day, overall, has been rather uneventful. and i usually read something or see something that inspires me in some way. but nothing really happened today. and since i don’t have anything to tell you, here is my attempt to make up for it:

Chuck Progress

first, i don’t like the idea of being tied to one name for this project. plus, the word play is irresistible. i mean, seriously, how can you not call this “Klosterfuck.” especially with the gratuitious use of the word (fuck) in the first chapter. so, this is what it will be called today.

Klosterfuck

chapter two covered the parallels of the Sims to real life. not as many lols. still enjoyable. again, i can’t get over Klosterman’s pessimistic, super-cynical outlook. but if you can sit through the more conceited and condescending of the cynicism, then the payoff (when he gets to the point) is still worth it. so far. i’ll keep you posted.

>so last time dear friends, we talked about how i pretty much always act on my random impulse ideas. how sometimes they’re great, like #hotnerdsexy, and sometimes they’re bad like blogging my progress of two Chuck Klosterman books. but as they’re both impulse ideas, they’re both coming to fruition.
so here’s how the progression of Chuck, or my Chuck Progress* as i’m calling it, is going to work. we’re coming up on Blog Every Day in August, and i’m sure no one, including myself wants to read/write an entire blog about a potentially boring and unbloggable book every day. so we’re going to do this blog thing as normal, and then , occasionally (when i actually have time to read), in a section of it’s own, will be the Chuck Progress. this way, you can skip it with ease if you wish, i get to continue with my suicide mission, and everybody’s happy. 🙂
so, with no further ado:

Chuck Progress

The first thing you will notice is the text is saturated in the word fuck. the next thing you will notice is that it’s rather funny. a bit pompous… no shamelessly pompous, just shy of annoying, which makes it tolerable long enough to be funny and even relevant.
–god, sometimes i really like listening to myself talk (write). honestly, so far, it’s a bit pessimistic. very “why bother cuz you’ll never find true happiness.” and i’m, well, far too optimistic to really buy into any of it. but i will say it’s entertaining, and does occassionally fall upon pearls of truth. for the record: i’m on page 4.

quotes:

“The main problem with mass media is that it makes it impossible to fall in love with any acumen of normalcy.”

“If Woody Allen had never been born, I’m sure I would be doomed to a life of celibacy.”

* i’m calling this project “Chuck Progress” for 2 reasons. 1) the obvious. it’s following my progress through Chuck Klosterman books. 2) i think it’s clear that i have no real faith in this project and therefore believe that it may in fact end up hindering progress. so, we’ll take it by it’s other meaning. throw out progress. as in, throw it into the trash. as in, might as well since you’ll get equally far either way. <!– text
