LIFE STORY: life + Seth MacFarlane = life that doesn’t suck
…because I have
unflattering pictures of my new laptop! Seriously, I don’t know why every picture my digital camera takes looks like it was hit with the ugly stick, but the laptop looks way better in person. It’s a sexy matte black that resists fingerprints, not a washed-out dark grey. Silly digital camera. You’re going to have to step up if you want to the favorite piece of technology I own, because the competition is getting fierce.
(yes i will keep that thing between my laptop forever because apparently the way it’s designed makes it easily damaged without some sort of protection between the lid asdfhjkl)
/okay, I don’t know why each image’s caption’s font and color look different (according to the post’s preview, at least), but hey.
I am officially a Sony fangirl! …who unfortunately doesn’t have the funds for a gorgeous Vita. :’c Now, the only problem is that I can’t actually use my laptop in my room, because there’s nowhere to put it… my desk is already taken up by my desktop and computer monitor, and — despite the misleading name — I’d never actually put the laptop on my lap.
Anyways, onto Seth MacFarlane, who is one of the few human beings on this planet that I don’t hate. It might seen self-destructive to call the creator of Family Guy one of my role models, yet he’s at least more reasonable than 99%+ of the rest of the world. I’ve been drooling over his upcoming debut big band CD, Music Is Better Than Words, but now that it’s technically been released, I don’t know how to get my hands on it… amazon.com had its release date set at September 27, so yesterday (one day late, but I had late classes on the 27th! orz) I rushed over to Wal-Mart, which might be the last place in North Bay where you can purchase CDs, and went to the ‘new releases’ section where I had snagged Rise Against’s Endgame, but… no dice.
I had a bad feeling when the CD (listed online on sites like Wal-Mart US and HMV Japan) wasn’t on any Canadian retailers’ websites, but I refuse to give up! Strangely enough, amazon.ca changed its release date from Sept 27 to Nov 1… although amazon.com’s listing clearly shows it being on sale. So, maybe Canada is just late? Maybe it’ll be released in stores like Wal-Mart and HMV here when it’s November? I’m tempted to grab a copy off amazon.com, but if it IS released in Canada at a later date, I’d hate that the album would lose a Canadian sale. (Fuck you, every sale counts!)
NO, I will not buy it digitally, or torrent the album. I’m not going to start on an anti-piracy preaching session, but any CD by Seth MacFarlane — like Rise Against — *has* to be in my physical collection. Seriously. Imagine my intensity when it comes to collecting books (especially manga; same height & look awesome as a collection)/DVDs/video games/children’s trading cards/etc… and combine said intensity with my reverence for Seth MacFarlane. THAT’S HOW BADLY I NEED THIS ALBUM.
So. Yeah. In the meanwhile, at least I can get my dosage of Seth MacFarlane with the new seasons of Family Guy and American Dad! Sooo excited for this Sunday’s FOX Animation Domination Crossover~ and I need to find a way to watch Seth’s ‘Swingin’ In Concert’ on EPIX online somehow… because EPIX is apparently an exclusively American channel. Canada, stop disappointing meee!
