I just imported my 4000th song

and I made sure it was “Love Shack.”

On a side note, please disregard the last post; it’s true, but it’s whiny. I should have more perspective: my job isn’t that bad, is pretty easy, will be over in under a month, and then I’ll take two awesome trips and have some time off before starting a new year and TA’ing, and then spending a semester in another continent. Really, I have no right to complain.

(Isn’t it funny to speak about a “right to complain”? I should say I have no desire to complain. That’s not quite true, though, and I can’t lie about what I actually want to do, whether I think I “should” want to do it or not. See: The Book)

This is what Dennis Miller says on the subject of the “right to complain”. I found it mildly funny.

On filmmaker Michael Moore during a 2003 episode of The Tonight Show: “He’s going to wake up every day for the rest of his life, and he’s going to tell us how he hates everything about this country except his right to hate it. And then we say that we love it and he’s going to tell us what naive sheep we are and that he’s the true patriot because he hates it and he sees all the problems in it. Yeah, right, Mike. You know something, if my yawn got any bigger they’d have to assign it a hurricane name, okay? Michael Moore simultaneously represents everything I detest in a human being and everything I feel obligated to defend in an American. Quite simply, it is that stupid moron’s right to be that utterly, completely wrong.”
