Maybe There Is No God...

...because I'm watching Notre Dame get beat up by USC. Though I don't want Michigan to play in the National Championship (stupid sports writers' east coast bias), I have to go for Catholic schools over all others (except for the Aggies of New Mexico State of course…and ha! Utah State has nothing on us).
I am so tired as we come up on the end of the semester. I seriously need to get back to running track and playing basketball so I can have more energy and lose some of the flab (it's not much, but it is more than I'm used to). And I don't want to hear about energy drinks because those things will kill you. I will be proved right.

Now, even though I don't have any money, I will start taking donations so I can go see "RFK." I'm hoping it's about Robert Kennedy who I've become interested in this semester. I can't tell if it is based on the trailers. Anybody with any information please call me on my brand new cell phone that I'm not …

My Favorite Singers

Otis Redding via I like the movie High Fidelity. In that movie, Rob Gordon makes many a list about anything and everything. I would like to make some of my own. So, without further ado, here are my favorite singers (each for a variety of reasons) and one song (Sam Cooke gets two) that demonstrates why I like their voice:

1) Otis Redding ("I've Been Loving You Too Long" by Otis Redding)
2) David Ruffin ("Ain't Too Proud to Beg" by The Temptations)
3) John Fogerty ("Ninety-Nine and a Half (Won't Do)" by Creedence Clearwater Revival)
4) John Lennon ("Mother" by John Lennon and the Plastic Ono Band)
6) Marvin Gaye ("Lets Get It On" by Marvin Gaye)
7) Jim Morrison ("Light My Fire" by The Doors)
8) Wilson Pickett ("Land of 1000 Dances" by Wilson Pickett)
9) Sam Cooke ("Summertime" or "Bring It On Home To Me" by Sam Cooke)
10) Bob Dylan ("Girl from the North Country" by Bob …

Who I'd Rather See

Alright, so I went to St. Louis last week (first time I've been on a plane) and I just happened to come upon the Cardinals winning the World Series and the celebration following. That's cool and everything, but what's better is the show I went to the night the Series was won. I saw Throw Rag, the Eagles of Death Metal and Joan Jett and the Blackhearts. That was so cool to me, you know, to see Joan Jett and to see the Eagles of Death Metal. That got me to thinking, "Who would I like to see even more than those?" Well, here's the (working) list:

1) Chuck Berry
2) Bob Dylan
3) The White Stripes
4) John Fogerty
5) Eric Clapton
6) Fats Domino

And that's about it. So...if anyone has any tickets to where any of those acts are playing please tell me so I can steal them from you. Carry on.

Oh, and by the way, I was in St. Louis for a college media conference. Not a pre-Thanksgiving break vacation. Now, carry on.
