1. They Might Be Giant's Venue Songs DVD/CD
Because! It is recorded, live proof that Trees existed! My precious, precious Trees, where I have seen a couple performances of Rasputina, They Might Be Giants (hence it being on the venue songs DVD!), The Donnas with Aaron, and many others. It is all gone now and it makes me VERY SAD, but TMBG has immortalized it in song form! Tell the moon you've seen the serpent, found the sword and walked among the...TREEEEEEEES!! I do it every day.
2. The Royal Tennenbaums
This is one of my favorite, if not my #1 favorite, movie of all time. I haven't seen it in over a year because Drew took it with him when we split up because he is a HUGE JERK. (Also, it belonged to him and was his DVD and he had every right to take it, but that is SO BESIDE THE POINT.) Anyway, I miss the hell out of it. I've been watching lots of movies with Owen Wilson in them, and I keep thinking of him clad in a cowboy suit whispering, "Wildcat...wiiiiiiiiiildcat..."
THESE ARE THE ONLY THINGS I WANT. NOTE I SAY THE ONLY THINGS I WANT. I ALSO WANT EVERYONE TO COME HANG OUT WITH ME AND PLAY 1000 BLANK WHITE CARDS WITH ME (I will spare you Monopoly this year), PREFERABLY WHILE LISTENING TO TMBG BECAUSE I CANNOT SEE A WAY FOR THAT TO NOT BE AMAZING. I have no idea when this might happen. Maybe sometime next weekend? Maybe the weekend after? WHO KNOWS. (Jesso, could I solicit your apartment for this endeavor, since I know you totally want to play the game, too, and I don't really have a place for peeps to gather anymore? IF YOU SAY NO MEGAN I ASK THE SAME OF YOU.)
THUS ENDS THE FIRST SHAMELESS BIRTHDAY PLUG OF 2007. I HOPE IT WAS AS FULFILLING FOR YOU AS IT WAS FOR ME.
