The Best Part...

I hate to admit it, but I am a little into the whole Twilight thing. I get that it's completely ridiculous, but that makes me love it that much more. The first movie was horrible, so the best part about the new movie all the snarky movie reviews condemning it. I love how witty the critics get in their review. Here are some of my favorite quotes:
“Even vampires, it seems, don't fancy long-distance relationships.”

“…think before you leap -- and love a vampire.”

“Being in love with the undead can be a grim undertaking.”

“Here is an emotionally tortured vampire. Here is a perky, friendly vampire. And don't forget the vampire who is a dedicated physician. “

“Meanwhile, every so often - but never more than two or three times per minute - one of the characters makes a point of telling the perfectly nice, perfectly average teenage protagonist that she is the greatest thing on earth. Sometimes it's Dad who tells her. Sometimes it's an enemy, who still recognizes our heroine's amazing power. Most of the time, it's some ridiculously handsome teenage boy . . . And each time that happens, five hundred girls in the audience scream.”

“First-kiss anxiety looms great in this film.”

“She's miserable, and what's worse, once you date a vampire, it's apparently like joining the Mafia. They don't just let you quit. “

“Where would Hollywood be without that old standby, the vampire-werewolf-schoolgirl love triangle?”

“Most important, not just one, but two supernatural hunks snarling over the quivering carcass of a breathless, doe-eyed young woman.”

Happiness really is overrated...

Who hasn't gotten lost in a haze of remembrance of something wonderful from the past that ended completely wrong?

"But your memory blazes through me, burning everything like gasoline..."

I'm never going to learn to spend within my music budget. I hear a song and just have to buy it.

"Because losing you was something that I always did so well..."

The Invention of Sugha Dust

Just cause I think I am funny and am a major music geek (...err just geek really, but whatever), I've set up a new blog so I can write about and post the music that I'm currently listening to. Music is my longest enduring obsession.

About a month or so ago, my friend Dale convinced me if I didn't buy Beatles Rock Band, my life was going to come crashing in all around me. How could I say no? I had already been toying with the idea because I love the Beatles and secretly have always wished that I learned to play drums. Within two minutes of finding the microphone, I forgot about the drums and have been singing my heart out ever since. I am a lifelong car singer, but now I have a way to amplify the sound from my television while having a cartoon grading system tell me I'm a rock star (well, duh.). My collection has since expanded to include all the Rock Band games, Band Hero, and Karaoke Revolution.

I know the music is important, but the most important part for any band (especially fake video game ones) is the name. One fateful day in a team meeting at work, we were all going sugar high on a big bag of Smarties and completely spazzing out. I laughed about something, and a puff of chalky sugar dust came out of my mouth. ; the name was born. My teammates gave the best part of it. They said it needed to be Sugha to make it a little more hardcore.

So now, I've created this blog, a twitter account, a bunch of playlists, and a facebook fan page. I'm all kinds of tech savy... I think. Mostly it just gives me an excuse to yammer on about music forever.
