What is your favorite thing to make when you're having dinner for one?
Which musical artist do you consider turned you on to "good music"?
What is your favorite quote and why?
1) Some form of pizza using pita bread and whatever decent cheese I have, sun-dried tomatoes and whatever random vegetable that works I have. Takes no time at all and it’s just really good.
2) Sex Pistols. Hearing Never mind the Bullocks at about 13 blew my mind as it sort of just hit me that there was a world of music that was not like what was on the radio and that I needed to listen to as much of it as I could. I no longer like the Sex Pistols very much but without them I never find the rest of punk rock, and everything else that followed.
We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.

1) I lack one, though lets say it’s White Whine. 2) Gray, it’s always gray, blue, or black. I happen to rather boring in that sense. 3) I tend to find it annoying. Its too bright. 4) Yes 5) I greatly dislike bottled water in general. I feel its incredibly wasteful as the costs both economically and environmentally to ship and produce are too high for my tastes. However I am guilty of buying it simply because sometimes I don’t have a choice. But generally I carry my own bottle of water filled with tap water to avoid doing that. 6) Deep Sea? is that an ecosystem? I find the deep sea incredibly fascinating and weird. 7) No, Culinary School. 8) My favorite class in HS was Global History. 9) Yes, I do occasionally. 10) Ikiru, it moved me and made me think enough I briefly when younger convinced myself maybe I wanted to be a film maker. 11) Cats’s Cradle. 12) No 13) I enjoy books and don’t feel I need one. 14) Yes 15) neither 16) When I was a kid I enjoyed sleeping under my bed. 17) I actually didn’t mind them at all and they killed a good chunk of time.
Every year I say this is the year I am going to get into the MLS. The year Ill actually support the domestic league. And then I watch a few games and I remember all over again why I cant stand watching teams outside the EPL. No team can employ the passing game like Arsenal. No team can counter like MU. No team can even compare to the Blackburn Rover’s physical game. I’d actually love to see games like this. The Rovers, Blackpool, Stoke going up against the Galaxy, Sounders, Dallas. I doubt that any team in the MLS could come close to topping a bottom of the table EPL team. Sigh… I guess I’ll just continue waking up in the wee hours of the weekends to watch the beautiful game as it was meant to be played.
i try not to roll my eyes so hard they fall out of my head every single time i read the whole “i don’t watch much mls but let me compare it to the epl as if they are supposed to be equal yet my palate is so disgusted by this league so i will not support it to make it better instead i will repeat this boring, old argument that anyone who is a fan of this league has heard many times before like it’s fresh” thing. you don’t like mls? we don’t really care about your tired, poorly thought-out reasons and we’d really like it if you continued not to care without informing us of how much you don’t.
but you know now i think about it the players in the epl are the only people who play the beautiful game~ the way it is meant to be! a-league? BEGONE FROM THIS PLANET. primera división de méxico? YOU’RE DISGUSTING. south africa premier soccer league? STOP BESMIRCHING THE BEAUTIFUL GAME. allsvenskan? I JUST PUKED ALL OVER MYSELF. except maybe like “the beautiful game” is accessible to everyone? and it’s really cool that most countries have their own league structure? and if everyone liked the same behemoth league it’d be boring? also, euro-centric much?
I passed by the building you were working in
I wanted to step inside it
I wanted to lie in your arms again
I passed by the building that you live in
And I wanted to die
I just stood there and cried
For then the way I felt
For the way I was gonna cry
For loving you
I passed by the building where you sleep
And I wanted to sigh
At the sweet smell of your loving
But I just weep at the morning
I just weep
“It wasn’t the size of the crowd that impressed me most, however, or the way adults were allowed shout the word “WANKER!” as loudly as they wanted without attracting any attention. What impressed me most was just how much most of the men hated, really hated, being there. As as far as I could tell, nobody seemed to enjoy, in the way that I understood the word, anything that happened during the entire afternoon. Within minutes of the kick-off there was real anger (‘You’re a DISGRACE, Gould. He’s a DISGRACE!’ ‘A hundred quid a week? A HUNDRED QUID A WEEK! They should give that to me for watching you’) as the game went on, the anger turned into silent outrage, and then seemed to curdle into sullen, silent discontent. Yes, yes, I know all the jokes. What else could I have expected at Highbury? But I went to Chelsea and to Tottenham and to Rangers, and saw the same thing: that the natural state of the football fan is bitter disappointment, no matter what the score.”—
From Fever Pitch by Nick Hornby
(on going to his first soccer/football game as a young child)
Sadly too true, I love soccer immensely and consider it a great sport but honestly I don’t enjoy the games. When a team I love is playing I mostly sit there thinking of all the ways they can lose and I am sad to say it can greatly alter my mood. When Charlie Davies scored at the Azteca as much as i jumped nearly to the roof in joy, the rest of the game was spent dreading how Mexico would come back to score and win. As happy as I was when Landon Donovan scored against Algeria, the first 90 minutes and the day before were spent dreading the game and the potential of their losing and having to face a first round exit from the World Cup. However I love it, maybe i’m a masochist, I don’t really know but I wouldn’t change one thing. I do however apologize to all of you, that when it comes to this sport I lose my ability to be an intelligent and reasonable human being .
