if you were a wink, i'd be a nod.

I've been totally out of the blog loop. I will buy a shirt if you have any smalls for me.

I'm feeling so ________...I don't know the word. Insecure? Un-self-confident? I'm like falling apart at the seams at a time when I need to be stitched tight the most!

I'm going through another phase of "omg, i can't be a counselor, i suck at everything, what am i doing with my life?" crap.

I suck at counseling - I'm going to see my first client next week. We did some role-playing with a classmate this week. I was horrible. My body language and nonverbals sucked, and the worst part is that I couldn't even muster a half-way decent empathetic response.

Maybe I don't understand people enough to do this. Maybe I was never meant to do this. But then what is it I should be doing?

Ever since a couple years into college, I've been having trouble with words. I forget the words I need and stumble in my speech. I read books and I write well, so why can't I speak???

I am trying to remind myself that pain and struggle are an UNAVOIDABLE part of living and I would do well to embrace this. Maybe I'm just freaking out and everything will fall into place soon enough. If I run away, quit, whatever, I'd be simply reinforcing myself by avoiding the fear and then I'll never do anything risky. OR maybe I should quit b/c I suck at people.

On another note, wtf is up with Joaquin? Does he actually believe people are fucked up for reacting to his personality/career change the way they are? He's an actor - he understands people and how they work. He must be doing some kind of experiment.

almost forgota headline.

friends, i need a count of how many shirts to order.

maybe sean can make a size list at the top of the page so i can figure this out in an easier fashion. all these random postings are stressing me out.

the sizes and amount vary in cost, so it's really important that i know an exact number and if i should order a few extra just in case. ( i will probably do this, but i need someone to second me on it first. thanks.)

i told val we'd probably order 35 shirts. is this an accurate count? i was counting all the people on this blog, but the others like kacey's sister etc. but i know there are people i'm missing. the max we can order on short notice is 40. please let me know asap if this is what we need to order.

also, brian can you email me the actual size thing. i tried to send the saved pic i have from this to val and she couldn't open it. thanks.

<3333 love you!!!!

actual size

this makes me never want to have sex again.


possible design

what does everyone think of this design for a t-shirt/koozie? (obviously) there are two versions. one with white windows and one with black. i'm not sure which one i like better.

be honest, i won't get my feelings hurt.

i got the image from a picture that jessie milliff has up on facebook.. it's a black and white shot of the pirate flag in tatters. pretty awesome picture.

WKUK movie?

I think this will work, but if it does n't the link will be right after it...

more on this

shirts seem like a popular idea. here's what i would need to know:

1. how many shirts do i need to order?
2. i need a design. bri and jo, work on this and email me something.
3. i'm willing to pay the service fee of 25 bucks and pay the 150 in advance, but that means that everyone has to pay me back for the shirts. menowsky is a half jewish last name. if you know what i mean.
4. sean, can you be in charge of asking those not on the blog? like, i know max checks this but i don't know how often. also, keesee who also checks, but i don't know how often, eldridge, kruter, etc etc. you're really good at stuff like that, so i need you buddy.
5. i think that's it.
6. micky, no hoodies! that's expensive! although i would love an upton cardigan. maybe i'll make a patch and sew it on me.

like a boss!

In the defense and support of beards!

I have been noticing beards have gained popularity recently, and rightfully so. Bring back Civil War era facial hair!

hey buttmunchers.
i've been thinking we should make shirts or koozies to commemorate each other within the upton community.
this mostly came about because my friend who runs iheartyou productions told me how they aren't getting as many orders as they could etc etc, bad economy and whatever else.
so i was like "dang, maybe since all my friends are like frat brothers anyways would want to get shirts or something awesome looking to hold our beers that we could use for the rest of our lives even when we live far away from each other."

so with that, i'm bringing up the idea on the board. i, personally, would wear/drink the shit out of something like this. and if we plan it out right, we could have them by the time it's gettysburg.

if i read the site right, it'd be like 150 bucks for like 20-49 shirts. so that'd be like 7 bucks each if 20 people bought them. also, koozies are 50 for 90 bucks. someone with a physics degree should check my math on this, since my degree only taught me how to read and write and know about primate mating patterns.

just throwing it out there. i think it'd be badass.

check it out for yourself and let me know what you all think.

You just got Vin Diesel'd

whos your daddy and what does he do

Randy Moller, who does play-by-play for the Florida Panthers hockey team, likes to punctuate goals with random pop culture references. Watch and learn.

Is this for real?

Joaquin Phoenix... is this serious?

This is happening at UH. It's pretty much one of my favorite things ever and if anyone wants to go with me I'd love the company. I know how much everyone on here loves to think/hear/see/enter vaginas so it could be fun and cool for, you know, everyone on here. Plus, all the money is going to a great cause because we all know there's way too many bitches getting beat now-a-days.

(women's resource center)
The WRC is helping a student group produce The Vagina Monologues on campus. This much-produced play celebrates the lives of women and our bodies, while addressing issues of violence against women. The play will be presented on Saturday, February 28 at 8pm at the Jose Quintero Theater on campus. Admission will be $10.00 and $8.00 for students. Proceeds will benefit the Houston Area Women's Center. Seating is limited so advanced ticket purchase is recommended. Tickets go on sale on February 16 and can be purchased at the WRC.

uh yeah

i'm sorry if you didn't get an invite via facebook. it took a while to go through the list.

regardless, make sure you're there.

ChiCity, whats up? Its Jesus.

Debbie Downer

From Canto V of Alfred, Lord Tennyson's In Memoriam, A. H. H.:

I sometimes hold it half a sin
To put in words the grief I feel;
For words, like Nature, half reveal
And half conceal the Soul within.

But, for the unquiet heart and brain,
A use in measured language lies;
The sad mechanic exercise,
Like dull narcotics, numbing pain.

In words, like weeds, I'll wrap me o'er,
Like coarsest clothes against the cold:
But that large grief which these enfold
Is given in outline and no more.

This poem overall (at least, what I've thus far read of it) has really resonated and was a well-timed assignment to receive, I feel. I've been struggling for awhile, trying to write a poem or poems about Sam's death that were actually inherently good, without somebody having to had been close to the experience to appreciate them. Harder than anctipated - and workshopping these poems is really tough; I had a poem about Journey and Sam and stuff that I thought actually came out well, but my peers kind of tore it apart. I've been wondering if I was wrong to try and write about this kind of thing so soon after it happened, but reading some of Tennyson's words, especially that second stanza above reassured me. These poems have been a kind of dope for me, but more than that too. Anyway, something I was thinking about in class tonight and had to get off my chest. I guess what I'm saying is go read In Memoriam if you can muster the dedication -

disturbingly hilarious

havent been any offensive videos lately. here you go.

blows my mind

and is about comic books.

Poll: Do you think the phrase "blows my mind" has more etymologically to do with explosions or fellatio?
