Takagi and Bloc Party

I have a new love-- Bloc Party.

They're independent rock band from Britain. They're a bit like Arctic Monkeys, thrown in with a bit of... er... I dunno. They're just so versatile. They're guitar riffs are pretty cool. The vocals are a bit... meh. Really nice stuff. As far as rock-ish bands from the West go, let me rank them...

1. Franz Ferdinand
2. Bloc Party
3. Arctic Monkeys
4. Coldplay
5. Mute Math

Little Thoughts: A sorta sweet song. I like it, it's sorta mellowing.
Hunting for Witches: A more rock song. I don't like the very distorted start, but the guitar riff is very cool!
Flux: My favorite BP song. Techno for the win.
Helicopter: A decent song by them. A lot heavier than their other stuff that I've posted here.
Banquet: Second favorite Bloc Party song.

I really love their stuff... it's really an interesting band. I got all their CD's, and they came to St. Louis (!) but then Kele (main singer) got laryngitis, so they canceled the show. Which was oh so lame.

My first reaction was "WHAAA? A BRITISH BLACK GUY IN ROCK MUSIC?" But whatever. I like it.

I think that this band's a lot more versatile than the Arctic Monkeys, and are sort of like Franz Ferdinand in their usage of synthesizer in their newer stuff. They're also pretty good live. I'm going through my sort of "indie rock" phase. One good example is the band "The Editors".

Editors-- An End Has a Start
They are just... different. I dunno how to explain it. Catchier riffs, sort of like the Strokes (love that band too).

The Strokes-- 12:51: This is my favorite song by this band. Electronic sorta, but the vocals are just perfect. Main guitar distortion is amazing.

I'll post pics from prom later... I deleted my Facebook, and wow, I've got so much free time.

Takagi's Love Letter

Dear Girl,
There's been something that's been eating away at me for almost a month.... I've never felt this way before. I think it's love. No, I'm sure this is love. I think it would be best for me to be frank with you, seeing as how you are heavily involved in this love of mine.

See, love is irrational. It's blind. It has a will of it's own. For that reason, I was unsure at first if what I was feeling really was love. But now I'm sure it is.

Now, in advance, although this may sound a bit creepy, even if you don't feel the same way, let's at least stay friends.

Girl, I'm in love. With your laptop.

You may have pretty eyes, a lovely smile, a charming personality, a nice laugh, but your laptop has DUAL CORE PROCESSORS. Your laptop also has A BUILT-IN CAMERA!! Mon dieu! An ergonomic keyboard surely makes your laptop a lot better!! Your laptop has a nice LCD display, a nice mousepad, is slim and easy-to-carry, has over 100GB of hard disk space, God knows how much RAM it has, and it RUNS VISTA ALMOST PERFECTLY!! I haven't fallen in love-- I was gagged and thrown headfirst into it!

Tell your laptop that I love her,

I'm going to either gonna give it to her or read it out loud at the next National Honor Society meeting on the mic as 100 some members look on in awe. Suggestions? Read it at the meeting, read it in a class, read it in front of her alone, her and her friends, just give it to her? I'm going for the "OMG" value and reading it in the meeting, just to make her blush like hell is red.

Takagi's Orgasmic Experience

I think I had an orgasmic experience with a girl.... or rather, her laptop.

She was running Vista (said it was XP... fail), it had a nice pink theme to it, it was Sony Vaio, had Pentium dual core processors, a nice built in camera (aesthetically nice, dunno about functionality), very sweet keyboard and mouse layout, and was actually running pretty smoothly.

I totally plugged my USB flash drive into that thing.

It was this experience that made me realize something. I like computers and spend more time with computers than I do with girls. Besides the obvious reasons, here are some more insightful reasons why I favor computers over girls.

Listing a few of them off...

1. You can plug your USB drive into a PC right after you buy it and install the drivers. *innuendo*
2. You can unzip files on a PC within like.... ten seconds. A girl? Not so much. *innuendo*
3. Hitting your PC can usually fix problems. Hitting girls gets you in trouble.
4. You can dual boot a PC. So in case you don't like how your PC is running, you can install another OS. Girls can't change their personalities like that. Unless they're bipolar, in which case, you've got some problems.
5. The bigger the number on a PC (RAM, hard disk space, etc.), the better. The bigger the number for a girl (weight, age, etc.), the worse.

Yes, I need a life.
