May 4, 2014 brendan commented on What Was the Last Piece of Music that Gave You the Chills?.
A couple weeks ago, I was sampling some music that Spotify had suggested to me, and I heard Brolle's "Handen på hjärtat" for the first time. The song gave me chills, especially the bridge and the final repetition of the chorus. My Swedish is pretty terrible, but the guy's got pipes, and the overall sound is very... emotive.

When I was dealing with depression in the twelfth grade, Alanis Morissette's "Thank U" [sic] probably did more for me than meds or therapy.

Scones are almost always too dry and crumbly for me to enjoy; as a food purist, I refuse to dunk things in my coffee. And what's with the giant crystals of sugar on top? Sometimes I settle for the two-bite scones from the grocery store, which are probably full of stabilizers and preservatives, but at least they have good flavor and texture.

@33, Worst place in the entire world? Surely you jest. Boring neighborhood, yeah, but I sleep pretty well at night with all the nothing going on.

+1 @33. WPH is OK, but Kylie's is considerably better.

@25, stuffed pizza is gross. Wads and wads of semi-molten cheese that just won't go down the hatch without making me gag. Ugh.

Kylie's is an excellent approximation of Chicago-style pizza. Been going there for years.

You know what would be as morally repugnant as Pedophile Pride Day? Bryan J Fischer Pride Day.
Sep 19, 2012 brendan commented on Leschi Property Owners Taunt Angry Neighbors and Government with Sign Telling Obama to "Kiss Our Booty".
The mention of Obama is puzzling. Just about any alleged burden these wackos would encounter (e.g. getting the right building permits) is sure to be a city/county issue, not a federal one. An Obama presidency has no bearing on the permitting process, height limits, setback requirements, etc. Idiots.

I'm sorry, Dan and Cindy, but that was intolerable to listen to.
Sep 16, 2012 brendan commented on AZ Judge to Sexual Assault Victim: "When you blame others, you give up your power to change.".
Shame on the dishonorable Judge Hatch for blaming the victim of her sexual assault. SHAME. And the judge could use an English lesson, too.

Incorrect: "If you wouldn’t have been there that night, none of this would have happened to you."
Correct: "If you hadn't been there that night, none of this would have happened to you."
