Freshman year of college I had a roommate, who like me, was a nerd.
Now we were nerds in the sense that each of us had interest in things that weren't cool.
SciFi, Dilbert, computers, the like. In '99 when computers weren't suggested for freshman each of us had one, me with my laptop, and him a desktop. Sharing a dial up connection was tough but we made it work somehow.
That year was pretty good and we stayed in touch the next few years, then drifted apart around junior year, oddly enough I ran into at graduation and we talked again. He was getting his degree in Music and considering staying on for Computer Science (what he entered college to do) he admitted that the year living with me had changed his view of college and had more fun after living with the slacker that was me.
Anyway he found this video early in our freshman year.
We quoted it throughout the year and I had looked for it off and on for years.
Makes me wonder if Phantom Menace 3d is still in theatres.

Years ago I was visiting Southern California and the World Famous KROQ would play this about once a day.
Without a doubt I knew it was No Doubt but didn't recall where I knew it from.
The answer: King of the Hill
The one where Bobby pretends to be a high school senior and the school ends up winning a contest to get No Doubt to play a dance.

Yeah I like Ghost World.
But honestly I like nearly any movie with Steve Buscemi.
Before I came to Seattle I remember drinking with my friend Lizzie and she asked me why I was going to Seattle.
I asked if she had seen Ghost World and I told her it was like taking the bus where you didn't know where it'd go.
She got it and wished she was that brave.

Snuff Box answers the question: What would happen if Bob Fossil and Douglas Reynholm hung out.
Netflix recommended it and I'm enjoying it.
Although now people are going to ask why I watched that instead of The Wire, How I Met Your Mother, Dexter, True Blood, or Plenty of Other Shows.
