Your "comments" button is a tease. Yes, this thing is on.
from xmasface :
"I just feel alternately sad and lucky in a bewildering way." - that's just how I feel, all the time!
from xmasface :
Don't let that be a reason for you to not come visit San Francisco.
from xmasface :
My?
from xmasface :
Booooooooooo! Stupid stupid thing! Well, at least you updated. Glad to know you're still out there. -BLS
from xmasface :
Andy, you are a swell dude. I really hope you do something nice for yourself and the gods of luck looking over your shoulder.
from xmasface :
Damn, man, you wrote that entry tonight. Now I'll be on tenterhooks for at least another day before I find out what happened. I've made this mistake numerous times but I've also both returned cards and stuck around long enough to make sure that the machine swallowed them before anyone else tried claiming the thing. I wish you luck.
from xmasface :
Bon voyage, mon frer!
from xmasface :
So did I, buddy. So did I.
from xmasface :
So stop it already! Sheesh.
from xmasface :
Andy, what's going on?
from xmasface :
Last night my friend Rhonda told me about seeing Guitar Wolf in Toronto. The singer pulled this really scrawny white dude on the stage, thrust his guitar in the kid's arms and urged him to play. The surprised audience member, not believing his luck, did his best while Mr. Wolf turned to the drum kit and proceeded to heave his last bowlful of noodles up. The kid kept playing but looked as though he didn't know if he should go to the aid of his Hero or go on with the show. The Guitarist then wiped his lips with his fist and took back his instrument.
from xmasface :
Geezus that's depressing. But, almost, kinda, sorta ... comical? I mean, maybe someday people involved can look back and sort of chuckle. But that's so absurd! Maybe I have to laugh to keep from crying.

I'm very truly really sorry I haven't called you back yet. Things have been crazy here, especially since I was laid-off last week. But please believe me when I type that I love and miss you and do think of you quite often.

Hi I stumbled across you today, and I just wanted to thank you for your Song Of The Day "Favorite song this afternoon: "Mary" -Oingo Boingo". I love Boingo. They're one of my favorie bands of all time. I miss them. I finally got their Farewell Tour on DVD. Mary is a hauntingly beautiful song. Danny Elfman is SO talented. I get so excited to hear his signature sound in many current movies. Okay, I just wanted to say thanks for enjoying my favorite band, and great Diary. I think I shall add you to my favorites. ~Sarah
from pygmilocks :
i hadn't been by in awhile i forgot how much i loved reading your diary... ohh billy idol appreciation... i think i went a bit far last month and gave myself his haircut...
from xmasface :
I've already had two people e-mail him on my behalf!
from xmasface :
I'm so happy for you, Andy!
from xmasface :
Wait, wait, wait. And why are you going to Minnesota, eh? You should say hi to my friend Jeremy's family and my friend Mary's mom because she's getting married to Gary from Monks. He was the singer and I love that band.
from xmasface :
I'm sorry I can't make your dance party. Will you do a number for me? :(

The beginning was the end Of everything now The ape regards his tail Heís stuck on it Repeats until he fails Half a goon and half a god A manís not made of steel Twist away Now twist and shout The earth it moves too slow But the earth is all we know We pay to play the human way Twist away the gates of steel A man is real thatís how he feels

from b0b0 :
You should write it... and please include an ettiquete chapter or two. Like, how much should you tip if its ladies night and the drinks are free.. and should you wait for the eye contact or just yell out your order..etc... no, seriously..
from xmasface :
Buddy, that made it all worth while.
from b0b0 :
agggg noooo did you post to ask questions too???? damn it! I would have asked! I checked in on ya and just saw the entry with the song! I am not smart enough to remeber to click previous in case I miss an entry!!! I am so sorry! Is there any chance I could be forgiven!!!!!♥♥????????
from xmasface :
Your song made me dance in my head.
from xmasface :
01. If you were to have a super-power (aside from any you may already possess), what would it be? 02. Does other people's suffering put your own into perspective or does it make you feel better or worse? 03. What would you, honestly, change about your physical appearance through a wish?
from xmasface :
Sing it, baby.
from b0b0 :
honesty is definatly best! its very tireing to keep a facade. Your entry reminded me of one of my fav lines from a Rod McKuen poem, "We'll go naked in the afternoon and then you'll see I'm only me. Were you expecting somthing more?" - ♥
from b0b0 :
nothin like a good fight followed by sex though!
from b0b0 :
Everytime I get back on a Final Fantasy kick I find myself swinging my pretend sword over my head, and into the scabord on my back whilst humming dudu dudu du du du du duuuuu! (I have won a battle tune) :P everytime I accomplish something like finished the dishes or what not. Have fun on your time off! ♥
from b0b0 :
Bad Taste is the best movie ever! Well, its at least very funny. I had a shitty copy since high school, but then since this whole LOTR thing they put Bad Taste out on DVD because its the same director. hehehehe "I'm a Derek, and Dereks dont run!"
from xmasface :
What did you do?
from banana3159 :
I had nightmares about the phone place for years after I stopped working there. It sucks people's lives out of them.
from banana3159 :
Dawn of the Dead is the sequel to Night of the Living Dead. Both fine films. Damn I wish I was watching one of them now instead of being stuck here at work!
from xmasface :
You were in my dreams last night. you looked either scared of me or like you knew I'd done something wrong and you were ashamed. I didn't sleep so well.
from b0b0 :
I happened upon your diary and I rather enjoyed it. I have made you and your sock puppet a fav!
from jesskagetsit :
hahaha.. youre all aaron cometbus and shit.. haha.. okay.. i like your writing. shut up.
from aubrey-eavan :
can i join your filth campaign? that was a really good entry, i enjoyed it. also it's good to see someone's representin the kids in the hall.
from xmasface :
Did he really say he wrote that movie? I thought he'd written the first one. Maybe the sequel is more believeable. Thanks for sharing those scorpion bowls with me. I'm glad I wasn't drunk enough to go back to their hotel room and that you were drunk enough to destroy the T.
from banana3159 :
I so loved you KITH enty, Andy. I rememer how amazing it was to discover them as well, and I know just what you mean about it being beyond just the humor. I feel that way too about Mr. Show. PS-- the KITH first season DVD is out...
from banana3159 :
That was really insightful. Fdor what it's worth, only knowing you via this diary and the glowing praise of others, I think you are wonderful and have something quite amazing to offer the world. Take care, Andy.
from banana3159 :
Yeah baby, and I'm seeing it again with Matt on Saturday. Too bad you live in Maine 'cause I'd say, let's end all the competition and go see it sometime together. I love worshipping at the altar of Tolkien and PJ with other true believers, especially when they write as well as you do.
from banana3159 :
I just got back five minutes ago from seeing it for the 3rd time. Better every time. God bless Peter Jackson and Tolkien's ghost.
from banana3159 :
Here's to breaking spells. Have a lovely lovely New Years, Andy.
from banana3159 :
OH MY GOD!!!! I have the exact same issue!!!! I sort of adore my face as it's reflected back to me in real time, but video or photography involving my ugly mug usually sends me on a crying jag. If hindsight is 20/20, then I sure am in trouble.
from banana3159 :
"Under the Milky Way" by The Church? John and I used to do a cover of that...
from banana3159 :
Yeah UCB is such a smart show and so beautifully structured. I love humor that doesn't explain the joke to you and forces you to come up to a certain level. UCB actually have a theatre in New York and put on weekly (monthly?) shows. I would love to see them in person. Do you own the DVD?
from banana3159 :
Congrats Andy, that's awesome. Is this a magazine or a newspaper or what? Let me know when it comes out.
from banana3159 :
Good luck Andy. xoxoxoxox
from banana3159 :
Oh I love that song.
from banana3159 :
Many good wishes and much love to you, Andy. xo

Andy, you're scaring the <i>no-bos</i>.

Hi umm I'm a potter fan too1 ( Ooooooohh don't tell Harry that!, He'll kill me) anyway Please viset me! I have no friend here *tear drop* Oh & it'd NOT bad to like Harry. ( He's A Nice Guy, Really Nice * Smooches her pic of Harry*)
from banana3159 :
Feel better Andy. :-)
from flingiedo :
Tracking packages is soooo cool. We're the last generation that can claim bragging rights to having to wait 6-8 weeks for some piece of crap we ordered from an ad in a comic book or for a G.I. Joe "exclusive" toy ordered with Flag Points and paper money and change. Today, we can order something over the internet, and it completely escapes us that, even though we're able to gain access to, on a daily take-for-granted basis, a lightning-fast medium for commerce and communication, when we actually order something, weíre amazed that it gets to us in less than a month. Package tracking is and shall always be of exclusive fascination to our generation. Yay!
from banana3159 :
"I feel like the self improvement wagon has left town, and I'm sitting on the sidewalk blissfully licking the grease off a chicken bone. I want more than this." Oh Andy, thank you so much for describing in perfect detail exactly how I feel right at this moment! I'm so right there with you.
from xmasface :
That's funny, I have "the Imperial March" stuck in my head.
from banana3159 :
Really? you think white wine sux? I actually sort of adore it. Depending on the brand and what not.

you should start a cult... that's some religion i'd be part of it... except maybe push-ups.
from xmasface :
Zafir was asking after you. What shall I tell the people?
from xmasface :
My God. It's full of stars.
from flingiedo :
Have fun in, from what your map looks like, RPG Maine. Sendin' a beer your way.
from blaiyze :
Yes,.....i suppose you would consider yourself ..smarmy....but what makes you think you are elvin?
from banana3159 :
I agree with you on the Jonathon Richman insight. I also think he'd be a terrific babysitter and that he'd make the best valentines.
from xmasface :
Pssst ... they've alerted the authorities and Andrew is closing down your diary. Get out of the house now!
from xmasface :
You're the only person I'd let play bass because that was the instrument I always wanted to learn. I dub thee H.R. Huffinstuph!
from banana3159 :
I love the term "put out" and all the sociological implications it has about the era in which that phrase was popular.
from flingiedo :
There was a three-month period in high school where I could not, despite my extreme eforts, get the Rygar theme out of my head.
from banana3159 :
Go get that girl!
from xmasface :
Arrrrrrrr, me heartie! Arrrrrrrrrrrrrr!
from flingiedo :
I heard that new pirate movie is rated arrrrrrr.
from banana3159 :
I think "Punch Drunk Love" is one of the most beautiful romantic movies I have ever seen in my entire life. I think that should be on a double bill with "Secretary" for Valentines Day.
from banana3159 :
Birdhouse in Your Soul IS the most brilliant song ever. I remember when an ex boyfriend told me what it was actually about. I felt completely enlightened. The verse about Jason and the Argonauts is like, the greatest greatest GREATEST.
from xmasface :
A. just bought a Toy Dolls best-of CD! They're terrific.
from flingiedo :
That was the most insightful entry I've ever read on Diaryland.
from banana3159 :
Beinghurt sucks. I send you good thoughts, dear.
from banana3159 :
The last three lines of your entry made me get up and say, "right on!"-- I've become such a cheeseball lately, bjut it's good. I think I gave up cynicism for lent.
from flingiedo :
Evil plans are like, so totally evil.
from banana3159 :
i am giving you a virtual hug.
from banana3159 :
I loved your ferris wheel on the island analogy.
from xmasface :
I've made you another mean mix-tape, buddy.
from pygmilocks :
hahha yeah... not getting enough makes me want to listen to pantera and hit people.
from pygmilocks :
i only have a crappy tape of bantam 'cause you can't get it in australia. i saw the luna chicks play live when they toured a couple of years back and that was fucking amasing.
from flingiedo :
111 entries, smarmy. Make a wish.
from xmasface :
I hope yr willing to spend the rest of your life working on those five simple things. And if you don't believe me, listen to the Dalai Lama. Or Yoda. Find a Guru. How about Andrew? Mr. W.K. (I didn't know that, incidentally). In the words of David Bowie, "Gimme yr hand / 'cause yr not alone! / Just turn on with me / 'cause yr wonderful!"
from banana3159 :
Of course you can do all those things. It's actually surprisingly easy.
from xmasface :
Ah, memories. *sniff* Thank you, Andy.
from banana3159 :
I honestly believe our dreams provide us with very valuable information. I think we communicate with each other, that we reach each other, when we are asleep. I remember the dream I had the night my father died-- I was 12. He and I were in my back yard, and he was so kind to me-- he told me that he had to go somewhere else, but that he'd always be with me. That dream has stayed with me since then, and has been a central force in allowing me to move on with my life. *** In other news, I'm glad you don't mind me gushing all over you-- it makes some people uncomfortable.. When I find someone whose talent I am enamored of, I find it difficult to sit on the sidelines and keep my mouth closed. I truly just find your writing to be a revelation-- I read you and clasp my hand over my heart at every entry. Your words reduce me to cliches. Andy, you can make me a sandwich any time. xoxoxo
from banana3159 :
Oh Andy. Gosh I know I gush all over you all the time, and it's truly not 'cause I'm insincere with Tammy Faye Baker mascara running down my cheeks. I just honestly am enthralled by your writing. I look forward to each and every entry so greatly. I truly hope some day you will publish a novel or something. I would hate to see your talent, which is so phenomenal, go to waste.
from pygmilocks :
i had to read your diary cause you have smarmy in your username so i knew it be good and it is. very nice.
from flingiedo :
3 CDs are presumably in the back of a Maine bound postal truck. You can check my diary for the track listing for <i>Sixty Songs Under Two Minutes In Length</i>. You can check allmusic.com for the Mono Puff track listing. The <i>Six Songs Over Ten Minutes In Length</i> is Svefn-g-englar by Sigur Růs, Marquee Moon by Television, Sister Ray by the Velvets, Desolation Row by Robyn Hitchcock (a Dylan cover), Down Colorful Hill by Red House Painters, and Night Falls on Hoboken by Yo La Tengo. Sorry, but none of the 78 songs youíre getting are by Corn Mo. Themís the breaks.
from banana3159 :
Andy, sorry to be a kiss ass, but you are so brilliant. I love reading your words.
from banana3159 :
I love Bamboozled. But Damon Wayans performance irritated me and I didn't like the ending. Other than that though, it was fucking brilliant. I think it's my favorite Spike Lee movie.
from flingiedo :
There's something in this world that brings us joy, that makes us sad, that makes critters howl at the moon, that makes us envy them. You just wrote about that. Thanx.
from banana3159 :
Sweetheart, I don't know you a lick, but I've been enthralled with your diary since I began reading it, and I can most definitely say that you aren't retarded. In fact, I would like to tell you with the utmost sincerity, that just having known you on the written page (coupled with the one or two milleseconds I've met you live in the flesh), I think you are absolutely neat-o, and I can see very clearly why it is that you are held in such high regard by so many of the folks whom I love most deeply.
from banana3159 :
"Drink less" has been on my list of things to do for the past year or so, and I still haven't gotten around to it.
from banana3159 :
That is the single greatest idea for a holliday I have ever heard. You have mad props and skills.
from banana3159 :
I agree with Jonee-- you're hanging out with the wrong folks. Almost everyone I know is very very cuddly. I think it's very sweet that you are looking for someone to snuggle, and I found myself doing the collecting AWWWWWW! thing when I read that.
from xmasface :
I think that you're wrong about the world not wanting any huggers. Most of my friends are huggers and some of those are even smoochers. We're out there, buddy.
from flingiedo :
You should try my duck pond simulator. The graphics are state of the art!
from xmasface :
A. & I were walking down the street, crossing a side street, when a big pick-up truck screetches up to the intersection, slams on its brakes and the driver almost jumps out. He almost got rear-ended in the process, too, but the guy behind him was just bewildered enough to drive around complacently. And so I finally met Matt, A.'s ex for the first time. That was weird. He seems nice. He came over last night too and A. gave him some muffins. That was more awkward because he didn't say "hi" when he came in and I was cooking dinner. Hurmph.
from flingiedo :
You can borrow my weather pixie for tomorrow, if you want, but BE CAREFUL with her.
from banana3159 :
Gah. I love Secretary more than just about anything in the world, and that's exactly what I said when I came out of the theater-- "best movie since Donnie Darko". I think they should be seen as a double feature. The Coolidge should have an I Love Maggie Glylenhall day. And she should come speak at it and wear a long silver dress and tea roses in her hair and we can all worship at her feet and eat popcorn with her while watching the two best movies of the past five years.
from xmasface :
God, don't I know it. <3<3<3
from banana3159 :
That was so beautiful, Andy.
from xmasface :
Last night, A. and I went out to play pool and had a pretty good time. Then her mood shifted on the walk back. We talked about getting out of here, out of this country. And she cried out to me, "what about Star Trek? Why can't we live like that? It's supposed to take place in what, 2040? I'm afraid I'll never see that in my lifetime!" Well, you just reminded me of that conversation.
from smarmy-elf :
Yes that is the one! (Is it weird I respond to people in my own guestbook? I figure it keeps things in context.) Deneuve sounds like a cross between "Demure" and "Hor's Deourve"
from banana3159 :
"8 Women"-- is that with Catherine Deneuve?
from xmasface :
My brother's name is Adam and his birthday is on the fourth.
from xmasface :
You really are a swell dude, you know that?
from smarmy-elf :
I'm glad you wrote back, I think this is something that is pretty important to have discussion on. The "too cool" comment was admittedly pretty harsh, and I'm sorry if you took it personally at all, that's not how I meant it. I know you're pretty sensitive about being called things like that, and I know thats not where you are coming from. I do feel that's the way a lot of people who criticise the protests act though, and it bothers me. I also see the problem with the cliquishness you mention. Solidarity against the war is important, sauceman expressed some frustration about this to in his sarcastic remark about the "fuck bush" in marker. I do disagree that the protest is impotent. I still believe it's an important thing. I also have family in the army, and I think most of us do, or at least know someone who does. I am by no means against the soldiers in the war. I am against the policies that sent them and us into danger, and the government that treats us all like cannon fodder. Anyway I think I may be rambling too, but thanks again for writing back, and I'm looking forward to your e-mail.
from xmasface :
Now, I hope that you don't think that I'm "too cool to stand with the protestors," because I've got to call you on that one (I got your e-mail but still felt I was getting a bit of guff). I'm really glad that you posted all of this, as I'd read a few things you pointed out to me that Sauceman had written, but didn't know about the livejournal or his mother or any of that. And of course, there are people who fervently believe in what they're doing. I sent you that forward because it reflected a lot of what I was seeing. And in this country protesting generally creates little or no difference. There are many ways of making your voice heard. I've been more interested in the mass e-mails and lobbying that people are encouraged to pressure their local and state (as well as national) government officials with. As you may know, my brother's in the army and he and I have had many conversations about his position in all of this. Here's a kid who's willing to die for his buddies even if he doesn't agree with the reasons for it. He knows what he's gotten himself involved in and that he'll have to deal with the ramifications personally. And I have a lot of respect for him and his choice, even if it's not one I believe in. Anyways, I'm rambling and this tiny dialogue box isn't really conducive to helping me clear my thoughts. Maybe I'll be able to e-mail you more later. I guess I'll finish by saying that I saw so many people breaking themselves down into smaller and smaller factions just to get their pro-communist/anarchist/whatever subsect they currently subscribe to, instead of just pointedly being against the war. *Sigh*
from smarmy-elf :
Yeah it was really fun. What is it about musicals anyway? Have you seen "8 women"? Also fun.
from banana3159 :
I'm glad you loved Chicago-- it was definitely one of my favorite movies this year.
from xmasface :
I'm burning with jealousy.
from xmasface :
Mike is impressed by how many people he knows have on-line diaries.
from smarmy-elf :
probably. Thanks for reading, in any case.
from xmasface :
So, what you're saying is that in a way we're arguing the same point?
from xmasface :
Way to pounce on that one. Down, Simba!
from smarmy-elf :
Touche Jonee. But what I am suggesting is that the moment isn't so small, that the the infintesimal moment is an abstraction, and perception is the only reality.
from xmasface :
I think that the importance of The Moment lies in the fact that this moment is so infintesimally small that we are unable to perceive it as such. Thus, living in the now means to be conscious and observant, in as total control of your faculties as possible. This can be taken a number of different ways. Some people become obsessed with the minutia (thus bogging themselves down in a Moment which has passed) and others can ride with this flow of Moments passing by (some going off on tangent which may or many not bear any sort of relevance).
from xmasface :
Yay - two! two! notes! I love to count! I'm going to add you to my buddylist.
