be responsible, vote!


YOU...

YOU ARE!...
YOU ARE MISSING!...

ENTRIES!

DANGIT!



ok. now remember, YOU CLICK HERE and then, when the page loads (it's MTV University), find the button that lets you vote for Meg and Dia and click on it... do it again if you have time... and if you keep starting with the special link I just gave you here when I typed YOU CLICK HERE then you give me the gift of entering me in the Meg and Dia merchandise contest (cuz every vote I get them gets me a chance to win Meg and Dia merchandise and you know how happy that will make me... and you do want to make me happy, of course, I mean, why else would you come here?...

well, I suppose you could be bored, but still, it couldn't hurt to make me happy and click a few times (or at least once) to give two sweet and very talented kids a chance at the exposure and fame they deserve, right?... come on, say right... this is the music business, after all... I'm a promoter, see, and it's my job to convince you to check out and even like Meg and Dia music... so YOU CLICK HERE and then you vote and by doing that, you help me be a better promoter...

I'll send you free tickets when I get rich and famous and get free tickets to send cuz you know, there are all sorts of payola in the business... Don King told me and he knows, I mean, just look at his hair... and I am doing my best to fill the role of avid fan... I even have a pimple on my face proving my teenage hormones are still alive and kicking therein providing me with more authenticity... so YOU CLICK HERE and Madonna will come over to your house and give you a massage... unless you'd rather Rob Thomas come over...

if YOU CLICK HERE enough, we could negotiate with the celebrity of your choice... it's up to you... just remember that every time YOU CLICK HERE and vote for Meg and Dia where the link takes you over at MTV University, we all win... you help me, you get a massage, and we help send the girls through college...

it's a win-win situation for everyone... even Donald Trump would endorse this, so you've gotta know it's good... did you know his father built the house I lived in when I was six?... yes, and all the houses in the neighborhood, in fact... there was even an area known as Trump City and Trump Housing was popping up all over New York City when I was a littler kid... so I wouldn't lie, after all, I lived in the Donald's house... I wasn't an apprentice though...

got a minute?... well then, CLICK HERE TOO... of course it's the same link, but guess what?... you get to vote again and give me one more point in the Meg and Dia sweepstakes... yes, that's right, I could win Meg and Dia if you just help me out... I'll take good care of them if I win, I promise... I'll water them and feed them and give them plenty of sun... I'll treat them with kit gloves... and I'll dress them up real pretty and take them out daily to wherever they want to go...

did I mention I'll love you forever?... no really, I will... it's what I do... everybody's gotta have an avocation... and a vocation as well... so help put the girls through college and help be become a good promoter and help yourself to a whole lotta love (do you need cooling?)... JUST CLICK HERE and vote for Meg and Dia... they'd make a great President...

so did you vote?...

you could be laughing seriously
maybe not sure what to make of me
just write me off for being silly
or you could see more deeply, see?

I could be a fantasy or this could be reality
relative insanity, who's to say what is crazy?
it all depends on what you believe in
what do you believe in when you believe?
hopefully you believe in something
cuz without believing life is empty

as for me, I believe in love
yeah, the simplest one of them all
and you could be laughing seriously
but I live for the fall


well, some of you might not have stuck around for this segue what with my ovulating (wait, I think I meant something else) over Meg and Dia for more than a half dozen paragraphs, but then, maybe you don't believe what I believe (but if only you believed what I believed... we'd get by) believe it or not... after all, there is plenty of wild left in this world in spite of what we ignore and deny...

by the way, the last two links had nothing to do with voting for Meg and Dia, even though they remain as beautiful and talented as ever... those links in the previous paragraph were just a couple of rhymes I wrote last night and didn't have time to upload the day before when I uploaded last night's writing...

it's ok, I say huh? a lot too...

but just in case you weren't paying attention enough to find yourself in a huh? moment, well, no worries, you can be oblivious and still CLICK HERE and vote for Meg and Dia and help me become a promoter cuz I think I wanna be a promoter when I grow up... I might have mentioned that...

and if you were just passing through and overlooked them because this entry is so full of the wild and cuddly girls from the west, well then, you missed out on my rhymes (I slip them in most innocuously sometimes, especially when the neon sign is not working... feel free to celebrate in the dark until we get it fixed)...

new readers who are not used to my playful sarcasm might find reason to offend themselves (cuz I'd certainly never offend anyone) or even completely misunderstand whatever points I attempt to make... that would be sad, so let's gather all the new readers together and explain that I mean no harm and love to tease in the hopes of inspiring smiles and laughter and that I take caring so seriously that I trust myself to be playful and trust you to understand and find the love in ever tease... of course you don't have to find the love... but if you think you find anything negative, then you put it there (so please don't and just CLICK HERE AND VOTE, dangit!)...

hello, I'm ric, and this is my diary... I don't always have something to say, and sometimes when I do, I don't always get it out in just the right words... and sometimes I don't have much or anything to say, really, but the words don't seem to mind cuz they just keep coming out anyway... even if that's silly or a waste of time, it's fun and I hope you're having fun too...

and since I am going to be working day shift and might have actual work to do that takes most of the time I am at work (as opposed to now when I can do the required work in an hour or two and the rest of the time is mine to do extra work or to babble on as I am doing now), I am taking advantage of my last two weeks of night shift babble time (aren't you lucky) so I might even write some nonsense that is meaningless instead of my usual nonsense which is secretly profound...

it's just so much fun to pretend to be some philosopher genius (like it's fun to be a promoter, ya know?) and state the obvious as if it's some profound obscure hieroglyphic pantheon of universal knowledge or a gift from the gods, even... but wait, I don't do that, I'm always serious and meaningful and sincere, you know that... so don't forget, buy Meg and Dia music and merchandise and remember that to CLICK HERE and vote for the girl wonders so they can go to University...

this entry was especially created as a gift for Serenity cuz she so loves Meg and Dia that she'll probably take off from work just to vote for them a gazillion times (now dontcha feel inadequate for only voting for them once?... you did CLICK AND VOTE, right?... yes, well, don't feel too bad, after all, we can't all be as amazing and wonderful as Serenity...

we have until Friday to CLICK AND VOTE for the precious and powerful Meg and Dia as many times as humanly possible (and for my alien readers, please CLICK AND VOTE HERE as often as you can within the laws and internet etiquette on your planet) so that this entry was not a waste of your time and remember most that it is up to you to prevent forest fires...

Smokey the Bear CLICK AND VOTED seventy-three times so far... he said he'd vote lots more if I mentioned the forest fire thing, so be careful with matches and open flames out in the woods, especially during the dry season... and don't smoke cuz that's just slow suicide and makes your mouth taste like an ash tray and nobody likes licking an ash tray (just the thought of kissing a smoker grosses me and Smokey out... I'm not sure about the Donald, though he did just text in a vote for the amazing and wonderful Meg and Dia)...

I love the way they rock, I love the way they roll
I love the way they sweat and drip into my soul
I love the way they feel all soft and warm at night
I love the way they explode into the spotlight

I love the way they sing words written for the heart
and when they harmonize my walls all fall apart
I love it when they smile and look me in the eyes
that's when my knees get week cuz they seem so wise

I love the way it feels to get lost in their sound
the depths seem bottomless like a lost and found
you can laugh or mock me for the way I am
but try to understand I'm a Meg and Dia fan


and I am proud to be a Meg and Dia fan... I know, I didn't get this way last month when Spill Canvas were the best thing since chocolate fudge topping in a jar, but then, Spill Canvas had me listening to them in the car as the only car CD for a few months, so they got plenty of playing time... and I saw them in concert and they were wow, fantastic... but whether it makes me chauvinist or just plain heterosexual, it takes a cute girl to get me gushing about in silly rhymes... I think that's cuz the romantic in me fantasizes best when there's some lust rising up from deep within the biochemistry of this body, but I don't overanalyze the process too much cuz that might upset the precarious balance that inspires me to get all silly and creative and even if they're a mockery of poetry and bad it's just too much fun (for me at least, and I just know some of you feel the same way, right?) to question or interfere with...
