...for the approximately 1.5% of my brain cells that have died since this morning. And no, these are not alcohol induced casualties. The cause of death is overexposure to the body of work of Soulja Boy. I had heard of him on occasion, as well as his eponymous dance, but it wasn't until today that I gained a full awareness of him and the utter crap he has spewed on the public. In his Wikipedia article, Snoop Dogg, 50 Cent, and Jermaine Dupri all blasted his lack of talent. If the East Coast, the West Coast, and the Dirty South join forces against you, then you must really suck. How full of yourself are you if you name your debut album after your website? It's a good thing Soulja Boy is already an American citizen; if he weren't, his command of the English language would be insufficient to pass a citizenship test. What does it say about the state of our culture that "Crank Dat (Soulja Boy)" spent seven weeks at the top of the Billboard Hot 100? The consolation prize is that courtesy of these lyrics, and Urban Dictionary, I now know what "bathing apes" are, as well as what it means to "Superman" a female. I will NOT link to anything related to Soulja Boy here; he doesn't deserve any kind of additional publicity.
I rolled out to Durham after work, and secured two tickets to the UNH hockey game two nights hence. I bought straight from the box office to avoid paying the exorbitant fees that are attached to online ticket sales. I also went shopping for a sweatshirt at Hayden Sports, but decided against buying one when I discovered that I had left my bank card in the Minivan o' War (I took it out to pay for the tickets at the Whittemore Center). I then proceeded just down Main Street to the Durham House of Pizza. If I had but a single word to describe the quality of those three cheese slices, it would be exquisite. That was the best pizza I've had in a very long time.
Current guilty pleasure: the MySpace TV series Roommates. Girls will probably like it because there's wall-to-wall drama, and guys will definitely like it...well, because's it's hot girls on film.
