Should I just retitle this journal "How my mind works"?

No. Because that's implicit (and often deeply obvious) in whatever I wind up writing about. Besides, I like calling it I Me Mine, I Me Mine, I Me Mine, which I have since the start back in 2004.

How does my mind work? Yesterday it mashed up a Beastie Boys song with a Rage Against the Machine song. I wondered if those two bands (assuming RATM itself consistently worked together again) would ever collaborate. The two reactions I got from friends were "Uhhhh. Hope not" and "Why do you want horrible things? Why do you hate the Beasties and their fans?"

Also, someone said on Twitter "Christ, I need a drink." I replied "He did bring drinks that one time. Zing!"

And I flashed back to the 1993 film Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story (and got re-earwormed on Randy Edelman's earworm-y "Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story Love Theme" that got used in about 23% of all movie trailers in the Nineties), and decided that if a critic had seen the film and thought it crushingly boring and slow, that reviewer's review could've been headlined "Draggin' the Bruce Lee Story." Yes, sometimes I think like a writer of bad headlines. I've written my share.

Also, I still think (over five years after I said it) that "Weird Al" Yankovic's "Don't Download This Song" may be genuinely brilliant. So's the Bill Plympton video.

What else do I think?
