Double oy vey - college football upset post #2

My heart hurts. I hate when my anxious, nervous foreboding feelings materialize into awful reality.

Oregon State 27 - USC 21.

I still heart you Pete Carroll.

Brand Bully

Why is it that the meaner someone is to you, the more you like them? That's how I feel about Tom Fishburne. I totally heart Tom Fishburne. He mocks brand marketers through comics. Wow, we brand people can be pretty ridiculous.

Oy vey - college football upset!

Colorado just upset #21 West Virginia. The Buff fans just stormed the field and tore down the goal post. In all my years at the Coliseum cheering on my beloved Trojans, I have never seen that happen. But getting back to the upset, seeing that 'SC is #1 right now, games like this make me uneasy! However I have always felt that West Virgina is overrated...

Book Review: Bel Canto by Ann Patchett

It seems like I may be the last person in Los Angeles to have read this book but what the heck, I'll write a review anyway! Every person I've mentioned this book to has always had positive things to say about Bel Canto. One of my friends called it "a beautifully written book." I find that an odd description as I'm not sure I found it beautifully written, but I did find the story beautifully tragic. And I have a renewed interest in discovering opera. However, given my short attention span and lack of appreciation for fine arts, I'm sure I'll discover that I wish they'd make movies based on operas so I don't have to sit through the opera.
