Top 10 Fugly Female Singers

hi, my name is slim shadey
Here's the thing: I am far from a woman hater. But every time I see the following artists up to their shenanigans on the TV screen, I slightly want to blow chunks. Urban Dictionary defines fugly as "the shorter word for 'fucking ugly'", but I'd like to use it more liberally: fugliness is more than a physical attribute, it is a means of turning to the world and saying, "I am compensating for my fugliness with lots and lots of makeup and general trashiness. It's a distractor!"

So without further ado, in increasing order of fugly:

10. P!nk

Okay, here's the thing about Pink. She needs not be fugly. In fact, she's not even all that fugly. But doesn't the whole "Hey, look, I'm such a badass because I feel bad about all the cocaine I snort" schtick get old? We get it. You're a bad girl gone good girl gone good-bad girl who dyes her hair pink. Like her name! Get it? Pink is a talented vocalist--if only she would stop pretending to be edgy and tortured by her past. Druggie angst is all good and well, but if it's meaningful. Deep down, I feel Pink isn't as angry as her songs seem, and the rebellious image is just general fugly fail.

Put your MP3 player on shuffle, and write down the first line of the first twenty songs. Post the poem that results. The first line of the twenty-first is the title.

I'm on the 27th Trip Around the Sun

I've heard there was a secret chord
I listen for your footsteps coming up the drive
Sometimes I find myself sitting back and reminiscing
Leaf by leaf and page by page

You look so good in the clothes of a poser
I know that you cannot be here
The whispering may hurt you
My mind is like an orchard

How does it feel to be one of the beautiful people?
Nice legs, daisy dukes
I never asked for this or planned it in advance
Got me a pair of dreary eyes

He was walking through the park
Go ahead and burn it down
If I kiss you where it's sore
All over this town

You were mine
There's no rest for the weary
Somewhere far away
Today is gonna be the day

Points for guessing which lines are which songs!

Calculus AB: 5

Yeah, fuck economics. I hate that subject so much it's not even funny. Like, I'll read the chapter and do all the work, etcetc, but at the end of it all, I will have NO IDEA what's going on. Not to mention our teacher was a douchebag supreme. As a running joke, whenever he mentioned Reagan, my friend and I'd go, "Yeah, Reagan was magical. He was made of rainbows, invented the internet, and shat ponies." ...What an asshole.

Basically, I 5'd everything that matters. And so at orientation at the end of the month, I won't have to take a chemistry or a math placement exam. YEAH.

The End?

OH NO WAIT. Okay, so the job hunt has been fairly unsuccessful, buuuuut I went to VONS to talk to the recruiter lady (who happens to live across the street from me) and the entire occurrence went a bit like this:

Me: *sits awkwardly in break room*
RecruiterLadyCandace: I'd hire you right on the spot...
Me: *is hopeful* :D
RecruiterLadyCandace: ...but you're not 18.
RecruiterLadyCandace: You'll have to come in Saturday at 12 to talk to me and the store manager Steve.

So we'll see how that goes. Cross your fingers.

Okay, kids, question time!

1.) Can a person have depression even if nothing traumatic has happened to them? Like, can someone just have depression inherently? Just wondrin'.

2.) FRANZ FERDINAND. I am so so so lacking in demos and non-album tracks. Would anyone like to share? I would love you forever!

3.) I don't actually have a question for this one, but two questions seemed lame. Uh... um... uh... how are you all doing?

4.) OH WAIT just thought of a question. Okay, I have this theory: boys are stupid. Well, but we knew that. Because here's another thing: girls are stupid, so of course boys are too. But when it comes to the opposite sex, boys and girls are stupid in exactly the same way. I had this epiphany the other day. And it was depressing, because I had hoped that guys were at least dumb in a different way, but no. It's the same emotions, same reactions, same game plans. Am I right? Am I wrong?

Well, that's it for now.

hi, my name is slim shadey
I know, I know.

So I've been having an exist-LJ-entialist crisis here, okay? I've been thinking, "Wow, I haven't been on LJ in forevskies..." and then thinking, "What the hell is the point of having a LiveJournal?" and "I seriously need to catch up on my shows." and "HOW DO I EVEN KNOW IF WHO I REALLY AM IS CONVEYED THROUGH THIS STUPID ONLINE JOURNAL THING?? WHAT IF MY PERSONALITY IS COMPLETELY DIFFERENT IF ALL YOU KNEW WAS THIS BLOG?????" and so on and so forth. And now, this is me braving my crisis to post an entry. ANYWAY.

I'm sorry, guys. Would you mind if I--? I mean, would it be okay if--? What I'm trying to say is--? Can I just--? Only for a second...
THAT BOOK. I can't even tell you. I don't even know. I finished it a couple weeks ago and I loved it so so so much. It was just... perfect, you know? I felt like it was written with "Raka's Perfect Book" in mind. There are no words. I loved it. fsjka fjsdklaj fjkldsa ;
Also, story time! Me and la famille went camping in Zion National Park, which is this gorgeous canyon in Utah. (Unrelated, but as it turns out, I hate camping.) So there's a trail up to a cliff called Angel's Landing. The first two miles are uphill, so it was hard at times but nothing murderous, but the last half mile?

Rock climbing. It was SO MUCH FUN, omg. And the hardest thing I've ever done, since I am terribly inactive. But the VIEW from the top?

It was amazing. So you know what I did? I finished reading Slaughterhouse-Five on top of a fucking cliff.


So, um, yeah. And then when I was catching myself up on Lost, I saw "The Constant" and I nearly died. It's like this amazing inside joke that the writers had with everyone who's read that book.

Now, currently, I am reading A Clockwork Orange. It's trippy. Like, trippier than the Alice in Wonderland ride in Disneyland. Speaking of which, I'd really like to go to Disneyland right now. Except for the fact that it is hotter than a dead possum on a tin roof in Death Valley.

Also, I need a job.
