Emotional Assessment

My moods are not simplistic enough to be easily coded by some smiley emoticon or a “Feelings poster” on the wall.  However, read what you want into this litmus test about how I’m feeling today –  My play list for my morning walk to work:

I’m Free – The Soup Dragons
Ladies L.G.B.N.A.F. by Ice-T
God’s Away on Business – Tom Waits
Fuck and Run – Liz Phair

Also, Kid Nation continues to rock my world.  Kennedy won the gold star last night, and had a mini-speech in support of weird kids everywhere.  Yay freak, geeks, and dorks everywhere!  Oh, and she’s a poet.  Check out this AWESOME poem she wrote.

  1. Do you really think they write their own bios and stuff? I was poking around on the official website last night and some of it just seemed waaaaaay beyond an 11 year-old (e.g. Guylan’s writing). I still love this show … lovelovelove but I think it is a bit too adult-engineered. Oh, and some of the re-cappers at “Best Week Ever” are calling for a Jared spin-off solo project!

  2. It is sometimes a bit too adult-engineered, although this week it really sunk in how even though the show is structured around a challenge, that’s only 1 hour every 3 days…that’s a lot of downtime and footage they have to sift through for the weekly clips.

    Some of the stuff they write is pretty sophisticated, but I’ve been struck by how bright and sophisticated the kids are. They are definitely NOT your average 8 to 14 year old kids. They’re almost all really, really smart. I mean Alex? That kid is a genius – seriously.

  3. Did you see Maggie’s page? I swear it borders on kiddie porn.

  4. The gothy glamour shots?

  5. Oh, yeah, I saw them. Perhaps I’m totally jaded – after seeing some of the things 14-year-olds (and younger, despite MySpace policy) are putting up on the internet, those seemed rather tame.

    But they are a little sophisticated looking for a 14 year old.

    Also, we barely get to see the kid with the mohawk. I want more of him.
