Ending with Dirtbag


Some things you should know:

A. I prefer Ray Stantz over Peter Venkman. There, I've said it. I mean I really like both, but if I have to choose I go with Ray every time. There's something sweeter about him, not quite so pessimistic. Although I do know that it's his fault for the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, he should have just said he was a god.

B. I'm really digging Edgar Wright (now), which is no surprise since he's British and talented, and his pretty awesome blog can be found here:

My personal favorite is his daily photo.

C. This American Life on NPR is life-changing. The stories and ideas are consistently fascinating and borderline revelatory. If you're interested, check out their website for yourself.

D. Christopher Pike, Fear Street and Goosebumps were never really for kids. I just found a bunch at Goodwill for the scandalously low prices of 79 and 99 cents. They're going to make a comeback with the older, nostalgic crowd, and I'm getting while the gettin's good. Mark my words. Besides, with taglines like "They'll eat your mind, they'll eat your brain", what's not to love at Halloween time?

E. Word of the week: "dirtbag". Bring it back, use it at least once in a sentence during the week. Douchebag is getting entirely too played out.
