Morbid Humor and Utter Blasphemy

How warped is it that I love this t-shirt?

While I would never kill myself and I don't endorse the killing of oneself, I do love this tee's wonderfully morbid humor. Although, I have to think the butterflies in my head are blue and decidedly not pink.

The blasphemy to which the title of this post refers is related to the new cute things I found upon arriving in my office this morning. One is the "Answer Me Jesus" doll. He's a neon pink Jesus that works something like a magic 8-ball. You simply shake him and receive and receive answers to all of life's questions. Things like: "Resist the Devil!" "I Died for This?" and "Yee of Little Faith!" In addition to the pink Jesus TheOtherFeminist also bought us a lime green Buddha head in an orange box. Pics forthcoming.

And I did a very "Andi" thing yesterday. I burned a mix CD entitled, "Angst Goes Dancing" in honor of this weekend's multitudinous ass shakes and I was a bit lazy and angsty yesterday. The playlist includes....

  • "Kissing the Lipless" - The Shins
  • "Pink Bullets" - The Shins
  • "Crazy" - Gnarls Barkley
  • "Sexyback" - Justin Timberlake
  • "Buttons" - The Pussycat Dolls
  • "Ain't No Other Man" - Christina Aguilera
  • "Dancing in the Dark" - Pete Yorn (cover of the Springsteen song)
  • "Mexico" - Jump, Little Children
  • "New Favorite" - Alison Krauss and Union Station
  • "On a High" - Duncan Sheik
  • "Cab" - Train
  • "She Is" - The Fray

...and a slew of other musical goodness (18 songs total). The list above is in no particular order, but the CD sort of starts off angry-angsty, moves into danceable but snarky, and ends with full-on darkroom music. Copies of said CD available for birthday presents and babyshower gifts upon request.

On a musical note, I'm off to buy the Elizabethtown soundtrack and the Gnarls Barkley album. The financial aid difference check finally dropped, and mama's got money burnin' the pocket.


  1. oooh i saw that - along with answer me buddha - in a store here in austin and they made me laugh so hard.

  2. Mmm, I love the Elizabethtown soundtrack. It was just nice to hear that Lindsey Buckingham was actually doing something contructive, instead of sitting around eating Wheat Thins.

  3. The Jesus magic 8-ball statue is hilarious. I'll be sure to consult it for every question I have.

    I've kind of neglected the making of mixed CDs lately. Perhaps I'll find some time soon. It's a very good ansty, rainy day thing to do.

  4. Will you still be my friend if I express my contempt for Justin Timberlake?

  5. Soj, answer me Buddha!!! Fun!

    LOL, Heather, true enough! Unfortunately I couldn't find the soundtrack today (I found vol. 2) which made me sad. I bought the Empire Records soundtrack instead.

    E., I've neglected the mixes too. I've got some good ones coming your way.

    Todd, I hate him too, but that damn song is just so catchy. Contempt all you want.

  6. i confess...

    i am digging the new timberlake album.

    *runs away, hanging head in shame*

  7. I don't find the T-shirt offensive, just inaccurate. Everyone knows you get butterflies in your stomach, not your brain.

  8. Well boo! I kept looking at it, but refused to pay the $18.99 they were asking. Forgot about it for awhile, and all of a sudden is was 2/$25 at the music store.

    And there's nothing wrong with that tshirt. My first thought was, 'oohhh, pretty!'.

  9. Damnit, LE, with your tempting! I bet I'd like it too. Damn phat beats. I'm so conflicted.

    LOL, X! Maybe I should design that much more accurate version!

    LOL, Heather. Glad ya like the tee. As for the album, I congratulate you on your bargain find. Gonna have to order it from Scamazon I think.

  10. Hey missy

    Im feeling your pain re: your laptop. Mine has fucked up royally and just bought a back up harddrive to salvage whatevers left on it. It has deleted my last five years of pics and music though - thank god I had some pics saved online though :(

  11. I really like that shirt.

  12. Great t-shirt. Great.

    And I love the idea of that Answer me Jesus doll. Though I'd probably rename mine (if I had one) "answer me Jebus"

  13. AMS, that makes my heart hurt for you re: the laptop. Say a little prayer that mine doesn't kick over completely.

    Kat, glad ya like it. I think I'll buy it!

    Fence, I'm thinking of putting a red wig on mine and calling him "Shesus."

  14. Gotta say, I love Ain't no other man by X-tina. it's a fun fun song!

  15. I want a Magic Jesus 8 ball. That would be awesome!!!

    Wow, you know who Jump, Little Children are. I saw their last performance before they went on break. But, you use tolive in North Carolina, right?

  16. Kitty, I love that song, too. Can't help but wiggle when I hear it!

    Nicky, I looooove Jump, Little Children. I did live in NC, but they're actually a new find for me via Zach Braff's blog. He had a bunch of people recommend their music, and I quickly fell in love with them. Great stuff!

  17. I'd never kill myself but I wonder if you would strangle me during passionate lovemaking.

    The human body allegedly convulses crazily upon its death.

    You can put two and two together, love.

    Ride of your life.


  18. Johnny, I don't have words. *convulses*
