It's bad when 1am is an early night, huh?
I would really like to go to "The Myth of the Liberal Media" lecture at UMass
tomorrow night tonight
but i know i will have way too much work to do. I took a break tonight, though (did the minimum of work for the next day and chatted about Buffy
instead of getting a headstart on my other work). I miss a lot of the afternoon Smith lectures, too, ‘cause i have class or work. Sigh.
I went to B-Side Records this afternoon, asked if they had the “Buffy the Vampire Slayer musical episode soundtrack.” The guy said he said no and asked if i was i at Smith. I said yes and he said he'd been offered it but didn't think anyone would want it so he turned it down. At this point i said i could just go to the mall, it wasn't a problem, but he said i shouldn't have to go to the mall, he should have it, and i'd get it at a better price at B-Side and other people have asked for it too, so come back on Friday and he'll have them (even took my name and everything). I could have kissed him. I so don't have time to go to the mall anyway, plus the whole supporting small stores thing.
We watched this video called Slim Hopes
at Bodywise. It’s basically a lecture by Jean Kilbourne, so most of it was familiar to me from her book
, but one thing i didn’t know (or didn’t remember) was that the picture on the cover of the Pretty Woman
video is Julia Roberts’s head on someone else’s body. They also used a body double for the scenes where she’s partially nude.
