Tecktonic: It’s a new dance craze straight outta Paris, France.

There’s a Myspace profile for Tecktonic (I think he’s a DJ or something), but it’s kinda freaky so I’ll spare you.

Update: BuzzFeed has a good collection of links related to Tecktonic (videos, news, et cetera).

There’s now a Wikipedia entry for Tecktonik.

Phil & Jenny have a new blogging home on the intersphereagon. Phil’s blog got deleted a while ago so he needs one, and this one will have a bit more capabilities so it’s not a bad place for Jenny to be either. So…

Here’s their new address: The Bolls

I want to thank you for being a part of my forget-me-nots and marigolds

It’s been 260 days.

Motion City SoundtrackL.G. FUAD:

I wanna know what it’s like to be awkward and innocent, not belligerent
I wanna know how it feels to be useful and pertinent and have common sense.. yeah
Let me in, let me in to the club, cuz I wanna belong
And I need to get strong, and if memory serves
I’m addicted to words and they’re useless

Sometimes I still want to go out and get slammed. Stephen King describes his alcoholism well in his book “On Writing.”

I had forgotten the trick of being straight–and out of shame.

Hemingway and Fitzgerald didn’t drink because they were creative, alienated, or morally weak. They drank because it’s what alkies are wired up to do. Creative people probably do run a greater risk of alcoholism and addiction than those in some other jobs, but so what? We all look pretty much the same when we’re puking in the gutter.

He writes of a friend:

“How much do you drink?” the counselor asked.
My friend looked at the counselor with disbelief. “All of it,” he said, as if that should have been self evident.

I can relate. As so kindly pointed out by generations of alcoholics and their kin, alcoholism doesn’t end when you put the bottle down. Now I’ve got to learn to put down the pizza, the television, the HIMYM and Scrubs, the music, the movies, the books, the news.

Heck, while I’m at it maybe I ought to deny myself, take up my cross, and follow him.

A Poem by Erundur Anwamehtar

I polish the plate and put it away
pile on the stack and push it back
its placid destiny set
no more memoirs of food to write tonight
the tableware beholds no more
