Going Bald: If Only It Was As Awesome As This. . . . . . .

And by this, i mean click here.

It’s long, but at least worth a skim through (that’s what she said?) hahahahahahaha. ug.

Anyway, I was in alaska on this uber (german, for ubaaah) lame trip where we just hiked a lot and it was just so ugly and lame and not fun and i didn’t learn anything and the people were just so dull and nothing interesting happened, and i forgot where i was going with that.

Anyway, while on this “camping trip”, i wasn’t able to shower for a while. When we finally got back to civilization and was able to shower, i was shocked to find what appeared to be a small wookie (spelling?) sitting over the drain, clogging everything. This was super annoying because:

  1. nobody likes the bathtub to fill up with gross water (except if you’re younger and you pee in the bath. . . . . or an adult baby.)
  2. In general, nobody likes wookies, especially wookies that hang out in the bathtub (think wet dog but way worse).
  3. i realized that it was not a wookie, but in fact my own hair from various parts of my body, including places like my head, my chest, my face, and some other unmentionable places (think genital area and the like).

Anyway, i’m probably not actually losing my hair (i am), but i saw the video above and i couldn’t help but chuckle, nay gafaw to myself. Why do people care so much? I mean, i could understand if you just lost hair on one hemisphere of your skull (think left and right), but that usually doesn’t happen. It’s usually pretty symmetrical.

What killed me even more was the commercial itself. It’s so weird. Aside from the cool comparisons (one sad bald man, next to an ecstatic super tan, heavily eyelinered, ultra realistic plastic human figure), they have really sweet quotes like “the hairclub can give you a look that fits your lifestyle”.

. . . . so. . . . . i don’t even know what that means. What kind of lifestyle am i missing out on? Probably a sick one.

All i see on that commercial are guys with hair, and guys without hair. Both creepy. Actually, there was one girl who wasn’t bald, but had short hair. As if she had short hair not by choice and it was only with the help of the hairclub that she was able to convince herself to grow it out. Thanks hairclub.

Anyway, not the best post, but i’m trying to get back into it. Expect them to get funnier. Or not, i don’t care either way.

Music: A Good Judge Of Everything

I like music. You might actually say that i love music. I was forced to take piano lessons when i was younger and hated every minute of it until i quit, then i started enjoying it. I took voice lessons in high school, then I majored in music my first semester in college, and while i never actually took any music classes (i decided i didn’t want to try and find a job as a music teacher), i feel that i’m a good judge of quality music. Quality. Wether it’s hip-hop, classical, emo, emu, lady gaga, rock, blah blah blah, etc etc etc, it’s “good”, so it really bugs me when people get so bent out of shape over it.

I mean, that’s fine. I don’t expect everyone to enjoy all types of music. Obviously that would be ridiculous. What really bugs me is that people care at all in the first place. Why do people get so upset when other people listen to music they don’t like? People actually get mad when someone else is listening to something they don’t like. “Eff, did you hear what that guy is listening to? He is such an idiot. He is the stupidest person on the planet because he is listening to music i don’t really care to listen to. I wish he was dead.”. . . . .

That’s not an exaggeration. I really heard someone say that once (i didn’t). It’s true (it’s not).

Ok, despite lying to you just barely, i was merely trying to make a point.

The fact is. People have become really wrapped up in music these days. Which is understandable. Music is awesome. It’s just that they have become so wrapped up, they have lost all sense of good sense.

There is no need to hate someone for listening to music you don’t like.

There is no need to proclaim loudly that you want said person to die.

There is no need to make dumb faces.

There is no need to throw ipods out the window.

There is no need to destroy cassette tapes (seriously, there is no need because nobody uses them)

There is no need for even expressing extreme disgust.

There is actually no need to even hint at not liking it. Just sit there and deal.

You’re not going to die if you listen to something you don’t like

Your head will not explode.

Your ears will not bleed.

You will be perfectly fine.

. . . . . . . . except country. country sucks.

Ps. sorry my posts have been so random and crappy (i’m not), and i’m actually going to take a couple weeks off to climb a mountain, so. . . . . . . I hope you can deal with the lack of negativity.

If you’re feeling like you might need a negative fix, just listen to glenn beck or something. That’s what i always do.
