Off to see Elton John at the Air Canada Centre in a few. :)

... Of course the migraine I've been struggling with for weeks *would* get extra horrible tonight. I ate so healthily today (after days of constant cakes and treats and crap and work) until the migraine set in, leaving me queasy and with no appetite for anything except carbs and comfort food. Then I mixed up too much pancake batter for supper, ate these two super pancakes and completely overdid the carbs/comfort food, which was not good for the queasiness. Ugh. Effing migraine, go away...

But, off to see Elton John in like half an hour. ;)

I feel like everyone may well have heard this already, but I just find it hilarious that some Christian groups are up in arms about the new music video for David Bowie's song The Next Day. The Catholic League issued a press release that not only criticizes the video, but that also puts Bowie down as a "switch-hitting, bisexual senior citizen from London". Um... ok, that's actually kind of more awesome sounding than anything else, but anyway, moving on...

Youtube apparently tried to ban the video, too. I'm not sure if that's also hilarious or just really disturbing, or both. Seriously, Youtube? An artist can't draw on Christian religious imagery/iconography/mythology in an artistic (and "profane") context? There's no more such thing as freedom of expression? Or is it that you can't have slight nudity or gore in a music video? I mean, really, Youtube?

Anyway, whatever. The only thing worse than being talked about is not being talked about, and I for one am proud that Bowie is still getting people up in arms at his current age (and in my lifetime, when I'm around and involved to see this).

(He needs to tour though. Come on, I need one more opportunity to see him live, just this once...)

Also: I am dealing with the later stages of a migraine right now, and am presently in the "weird food cravings" stage. The current craving is for cereal. I just ate up the last of my Rice Krispies and almost the last of the milk, and am seriously contemplating making a run for more even though I feel like crap and haven't left my apartment in two days (so much work, omg)...

ETA: Ooh, apparently, The Next Day video has been reinstated and Youtube says the ban was a mistake. Oops? Also, I totally made that run for more cereal and it was awesome getting out of my apartment...
