I Love You, David Bowie

David Bowie Is  opened in Chicago this past week, and I will be visiting the exhibit on Friday.  Needless to say I’m excited.  Really fucking excited.  Even after skimming this review, I know that it will be awesome.  At least it better be.  Not only do I have to battle traffic in Chicago, but I will also have to pay for parking, attend the exhibit with numerous other annoying people, etc. etc.

First of all, can we talk about how in that review that I referenced earlier, there is someone in attendance who DOESN’T EVEN KNOW WHO DAVID BOWIE IS?!!  Umm, are you 5 years old or something?  Are you Vincent Adultman from Bojack Horseman?  Go away.  If there is anyone like that at the exhibit when I attend on Friday, I will flip shit.  (I will actually probably just complain to my boyfriend the whole time, who will tell me to calm down and mind my own business because I don’t know anything about Bowie either.  Whatevz.)

I am not in any way claiming to be a Bowie expert; rather, I am an avid fan.  Scratch that, an avid fair weather fan (bonus points to me for incorporating a sports phrase!).  I know (most of) his hits and I’ve read one biography, so I have a pretty good grasp on Bowie.  But, I mean, I didn’t see The Labyrinth until a few months ago.  However, like that dude says in his blog post, people tend to “describe David Bowie with respect to [themselves].”  I am not an exception to this rule, and I aspire to be an all-knowing Bowie babe someday.  Until then, I’ll make lists of my top-5 Bowie tracks for the time being.

Sammerz’ Guide to the Super Bowl

I dare you to think of anything more American than the Super Bowl.  What other event encourages its viewers to shove massive amounts of food down their pie holes while catering to their incredibly short attention spans?  Sure, the game itself is long, but let’s be honest; most of us heard this conversation 80+ times over the last week:

Dude, you watching the Super Bowl this weekend?

For sure!  But Imma be honest, I only watch for the commercials.  

OMG me too!  Those ones with the talking babies – GENIUS! LOLOLOLOLzzzzz

Food, booze, football, and various companies trying to get us to buy their products.  Really, there is nothing more American, which is why you need to prepare for the game ASAP.  Pretty sure you get kicked out of the US if you don’t participate in at least 2 of the following rituals.
