Voodoo
Is it bad that when ever iTunes plays Voodoo by Godsmack I sing along? In my cube? Fairly loudly?
No, that's not bad.

Is it bad that I, generally, replay it five times in a row?
Conventional wisdom says that people that obsesss over a song like this eventually flip-out and kill someone, either themselves or everyone else.

I should also throw out there that "conventional wisdom," touted as a good thing by pundits, journalists and the Bush Regime, is NOT a good thing by definition.

Interesting.

PS: I seem to have lost a noticeably large amount of fat in the last week and a half. While I wish this were related to music, it is likely related to burning 700 calories per treadmill session and doubling reps while removing some of the weight from the machines. I literally, last night, looked down at myself and quipped, "Holy, fuck I've lost weight!"

I'm sure that's not the only thing that you thought when you were looking down... ;)

I would like to note from the Conventional Wisdom article, "Many urban legends, for example are accepted on the basis of being 'conventional wisdom'." I've listened to Nightnoises's Flight Into Egypt 233 times. I'm not killing anyone.

I had the weight thought afterwards, thanks. Previous to the point my brain was safely stowed in it's upright and locked position.


In a row?

Not in a row.

I don't think there was anything safe about how your brain was entirely shut down. Jeez - quit giving me these kind of power trips or I'll start to like them!

Positive reinforcement. It increases the likelihood an action will repeat.

Tricky...

Lemmie tell ya, I loves the dirty mind eggplant icon.

I'm really confused by this sentence structure: "I should also throw out there that "conventional wisdom," touted as a good thing by pundits, journalists and the Bush Regime is NOT a good thing, be definition."

Also, you should just misplace perfectly good fat. I mean, what with the world being so short on soap and bombs.

Fixed.

I assume you mean you just made some soap in your cube.

Yes. The screams were impressive.
