Up the Hammers!
Well, congrats to Steve Harris and all the other West Ham fans for moving back up in the Premier League.
And congrats to me, because I've hust realized that I have MTV2 again, and to welcome me back they just played the new Slipknot video.
Also congrats to Edu for moving to Valencia. How that's supposed to be a great career-move is beyond me, but all the best anyway.
Somebody has to write the Danish FA and tell them, "if you're going to Finland, bring your own bogrolls". (in Danish)
This is funny, in a morbid kind of way.*
I can't remember if I posted this link before, but yipeee for Iceman staying at Highbury. And I kinda need to put in some kind of division to make the asterisk work.
And Arseblogs banner for the FA Cup was pretty funny. Asterisk coming right up now.
This is also funny. And that's about it for today.
(* In a blatantly fake kind of way.)

When you wake up feeling old.
Hurrah, I handed in my paper yesterday, which was a great frelief. 20 pages on Italian neo-realism, which I managed to compare with Dickens, Kafka, Greek tragedy, Richard Linklater and other more or less pretentious stuff. Unfortunately the traditional celebrations got a bit out of hand, so I'm a bit busted today. On the plus side I managed to win a bunch of money in a poker game.
Right now the best thing on tv is Patch Adams, which is rarely a good alternative to anything, but in 5 minutes there'll be a documentary on Motorhead, and at midnight there's a Bill Maher show, so things are looking pretty good right now.

Back by popular demand, the new improved Roy now has his trademark Gallagher Brothers eyebrows....

This Should Cheer You Up For Sure
Everyone else are posting their South Park versions of themselves, so now I have joined in on the fun. This is actually frighteningly close to how I look on 9 out of ten photos of me, except for the fact that South Park Roy isn't throwing the "sign of the devil" with his hands. Go here to make your own.
Today is of course the day of the most anticipated game of football this year, and yes that is including the extremely dull CL Final on Wednesday. This of ccourse means I haven't really been able to focus on my paper all day. My only hope now is that I won't be to emotionally scarred tomorrow to do some serious work. So far I have done all the reading, watching and learning, and written 3 out of the 20 pages, so tomorrow it's GO-TIME, and I'll hopefully write 5-7 pages. I shall persevere, oh yes, I shall persevere.

Cry, Cry Again.
So, I have officially started working on my paper now. That is, I've read the curriculum and seen one of the movies in question - haven't exactly written anything yet. I drew a question about Italian Neo-Realism, with a focus on Ladri di Biciclette and Germania, Anno Zero. Hardly one of my areas of expertise, but you can't win them all, I guess. 20 pages seems like quite a lot right now.

Good Things Come to Those You Hate.
Well, it's about time to stop beating around the bush, with the wrong end of the stick, and get some writing done. I have to pick up my assignment in an hour and then write 20 pages on film history in the next week. Yuck.
Roskilde has picked up Velvet Revolver and Jimmy Eat World, which means that this year is going to be all about the stadium rock, which is of course fine by me. Excellent, in fact.
And in an attempt to make nice with Roy Keane, Vieira has been talking about the FA Cup final. I especially enjoyed this quote:
Vieira then accused Keane of leaving his own country in the lurch when he turned his back on the Republic of Ireland at the 2002 World Cup in Japan and South Korea.
Asked about this latest remark, Vieira added: “Is it not true then? Did he not walk out on his country? Thank you."
Very nice. Bitchy, but nice.

v. pro·cras·ti·nat·ed, pro·cras·ti·nat·ing, pro·cras·ti·nates
To put off doing something, especially out of habitual carelessness or laziness.
I should be reading a lot of stuff today, trying to prepare for my exams, but why would I want to read when I can play Digger?
On Pete Yorn's website you can read that his next album will be out this fall, and he has even let that Dave Grohl dude play some drums on it, because that's what all the cool kids are doing these days.
Henrik's Tongue is the place where you can see all the celebrities in the world dressed in Celtic outfits. My personal favorite has to be Shatner.

Go Go Crown Maker!
I finally got around to buying my ticket for the Roskilde Festival today, so now I can start looking forward to seeing Sabbath again. In other terrific news I have dicovered that I have a week more than I thought before I have to start writing my paper, so now I'll just hang out and be dead man walking for a while. Actually I'd better start reading a bit in preparation.
Since I'm still not doing anything fun this month, I've had a bit of extra cash, so I decided to buy the new, and very excellent, Nine Inch Nails album. So right now NIN and Eels are pretty much the only two bands in my universe.
To make matters even better I've managed to win a bit of cash by predicting the 3-1 scoreline between AaB and AGF, and by betting on Swedish football and a horse named Crown Maker. Good stuff. Unfortunately I don't own the ability to quit while I'm ahead, so they'll probably dissappear again very soon.
Oh, and how sweet is it that AGF are falling completely apart right now? If you answered a lot of sweet, then your answer is correct!
I finally got around to watching Garden State tonight, and I have to say it was a bit disappointing. There was a lot of funny moments in it, but overall the story was pretty lame, and I didn't care too much for the ending either. For some reason there was also some very obvious flaws in the editing, although that's hardly enough to ruin a movie.
Finally, I better make a link to Dennis' blog, because he has been kind enough to make a link to mine. Quid pro quo, and all that stuff.

This Shit is Bananas.
It's very rarely these days that I hear a female vocalist that I can really relate to. I like listening to some of Aimee Mann's stuff, and I've been to a Heather Nova show back in 1999 (I think), but I can't really say that I relate to them. Maybe I'm just not in contact with my feminine side. But that only makes it that more special that I've finally found a female songwriter that I can relate to. So now I can proudly say like Gwen, that I too am no hollaback girl.
Wow, that felt great to get off my chest. It's those kinds of lyrics that just go straight to my ovaries.
I have just seen Kingdom of Heaven, which was okay, but by no means great. One thing that puzzles me is; why cast Edward Norton to play a role where you don't see his face, and he does a very bad Marlon Brando imitation? They could just as well have hired me to do my imitation of Eddie Izzard doing a James Mason voice...

Now You're Really Living.
Right now there's the anual regatta thing going on in the park outside my window, and it appears that I am one out of only a handfull of university students, who have decided not to drink the day away. So right now I can sit in my room, listen to the bass from the extremely lame music they play, and watch people pissing against every tree in the park.
The reason I'm not down there, in case you're wondering, is that I have embarked on yet another abstinence month. So from now on it's no beer, or deer, for a month.
In more positive news I have received the new Eels album. I don't exactly know what to think about it yet. I like Eels quite a lot, and have all their albums, but it reminds me a lot of Daisies of the Galaxy, which is my least favorite Eels album. And 33 songs may be just overdoing it a bit.
I also got Garden State on dvd, which I'm looking very much forward to watching, and I got a combi-dvd featuring I, Robot, which is going to suck, and Dodgeball which is immensely funny.
And, wasn't it just terrific to see Liverpool kick Chelsea out of the Champions League? The funniest part is of course that if Chelsea had won the CL it would have been pretty remarkable, but now they end up with the "fake double", which is sooo not as cool as the real double which Arsenal has had a habbit of winning. So up yours Chelsea!
And now the Chelsea players are of course whining about the goal, somehow missing the fact that their keeper commited a clear foul seconds before the ball crossed the line, which should have led to a penalty, and possibly a red card. Oh well...
Finally, here's a videoclip of possibly the biggest miss in the history of football, and no, I'm not talking about Mette Laudrup.
