"Thank you for buying The Silent Force by Within Temptation. You might also like the album Supergott (Speedy Remixes) by Caramell."

What. The. FUCK?

The only thing I can think of offhand is that they're both European, but REALLY? There are a LOT of people in Europe. Caramell is Swedish, and Within Temptation is Dutch.

*cries* My iTunes is trying to drive me insaaaaane...

Edited to fix open quotes.

"Because you own Hefty Fine (Bloodhound Gang), Genius recommends Dark Light by HIM."

HOW, exactly, are the Bloodhound Gang and  HIM related on a musical level? Or, now that I think about it, a LOT of levels? Someone help me understand how iTunes Genius made this deduction. 

...mind you, it's kind of spooky because I like them both, but only periodically and specific songs from either one. But that's irrelevant, because iTunes has no way of knowing that. *looks surreptitiously for monitoring devices*

So...nothing terribly interesting in the personal life... I'm going to kickie my kitty if he doesn't stop getting into things he bloody well knows he's not supposed to, but that's nothing new.


Before I go into my whole WTF?! speech, for anyone who doesn't know, I was born in Denver and have been a fan of the Colorado Rockies since they were the Colorado Bears, which was...bugger I feel old...more than 15 years ago. That being said, It's not "What the hell?" like they shouldn't be here, it's "What the HELL?!" how did it happen. That being clarified, I will continue. :D

What the HELL are the Colorado Rockies doing in the World FUCKING Series?! I had this thought at 6 this morning, and I was just floored. First of all, this is a team that has had six straight losing seasons, and the one right before that was just barely winning. And now? They ended the season with the second best record in the National League...right behind the Arizona Diamondbacks, who they just swept for the NLCS. For those of you unfamiliar with baseball: to win the League Championship and go on to the World Series (yes, before anyone heckles me, I am aware that it's not really "World;" let me finish), you have to win four of seven games. The Rockies won four straight, and on October 24, they will go to either Boston or Cleveland in their first-ever World Series.

Okay, so they're not the Cubs (who the Diamondbacks beat earlier). It hasn't been 100 years, only 15. But fifteen years is about the size of a major league career, and Todd Helton has been with this team for ten of those, joining right after the Rocks got splattered by the Atlanta Braves in the division series. There was some talk of trading him to the Red Sox during the offseason, but everyone stuck it through. Now, granted, the Red Sox may very well make the World Series as well, but it's not the same as being with a team that you've stuck by for ten years and watched same come from being tied in last place to going to the championship effing game. In a MONTH. So, just wanted to share the awesometacular news. ^^ Go Rockies!
