What can I say? Sex sells! I have no idea why I’m thinking about this right now. Maybe it’s because I’m still trying to find other shades of “it-never-comes-off” lipstick to supplement my favorite lip color, MAC’s Pro Longwear Lipcolor in Lasting Lust. None of the other Pro Longwear Lipcolors appeal to me, and Christina’s makeup dude recommends LipSense. I keep looking at the LipSense website, but I am too chicken to order anything I can’t try on first because I’ve had some bad luck with that. I might try a pink Lip Tar after seeing it on a friend.
I recently managed to move Christina’s music — and all my other songs — from iTunes on a dying PC to iTunes on my functional Apple. Apple doesn’t make that easy. I have a feeling that Steve Jobs would prefer that I repurchase all the music I downloaded from CDs. Unfortunately, not all that music is on iTunes and I don’t have all the CDs now, because, you know, we weren’t supposed to need ’em. I used ImTOO iPod Transfer software and was mostly successful. The only problem is with the album art. When I saw 1980s band Kajagoogoo‘s album cover and heard Eminem instead, I experienced a moment of severe cognitive dissonance.
This might not be ImTOO’s fault. I’ve been listening to Afroman’s “Because I Got High” a lot. Maybe my iPod is stoned.
Back in 2001, “Because I Got High” made it to 13 on the Billboard Hot 100. If I recall correctly, the song disappeared from radio playlists after 9/11 when we all thought we’d never laugh again. But now that I think of it, the song is all about how the guy ruined his life by getting high, so it’s really a Nancy-Reagan-worthy anti-drug song! Afroman was robbed.
UPDATED TO ADD: Interesting news! Christina is working with Stripped producer Scott Storch again. Sounds like a good plan to me!
