Dear Trent,

I know it's been forever since I last wrote, but don't think I don't love you the same as always. I totally, totally do. I hope you're having a nice break, baby, and I hope you're cooking up something beautiful for me in the new record department. As a longtime follower of your doings, I feel a little foolish for looking forward to such a thing in the near future, but I'm giving you the benefit of the doubt, Sparklepants. Maybe I'm a fool, but I believe you when you say "shortly."

In the meantime, here are a few of the things I've been doing:

  • Suffering a mortal illness, probably typhoid, that means all I do is lay in bed all day and cry.
  • Dreaming about Nyquil, which isn't available in my neck of the woods, and that makes me cry harder. I bet you aren't allowed to take Nyquil, huh Trent? That's a pity. I'll bet there are literally SHELVES full of it in Los Angeles!
  • Watching all 8 hours of The Thorn Birds in one day, and crying when Fee tells Meggie that Dane is dead, and then crying more when Meggie tells Archbishop Ralph that Dane was his son.
  • Falling madly in love with Stephen Colbert. Trent? When we get married, you know how you've got to have a list of people whom, no matter what, you'd HAVE to sleep with if given the opportunity, and the other person would HAVE to forgive you? Stephen Colbert is on my list. I hope you'll be able to forgive me. If you wouldn't, I'd probably cry.
  • Crying.

Trent, my dear? We miss you. We miss your sexy ways, and all the crying is really doing nothing for my looks. Come back soon.

Awwww, D. I would mail you a case of Nyquil, if you wanted. Seriously.

I remember watching part of The Thorn Birds when I was younger. I remember getting very upset when her cutie brother got killed by the wild boar.

Oh poor Dierdre. I hate being sick. Maybe you ought to include some Kleenex in that care package Maise. The kind with lotion so she doesn't get too dried out.

Posted by: Iris | Aug 30, 2006 1:32:45 PM

Girls, we have STRAWBERRY SCENTED KLEENEX around here. That is one thing that I am all stocked up on. Plus, I am totally swilling cough syrup. I'm wasted! Yeah!

Hack, hack.

Posted by: Dierdre | Aug 30, 2006 1:38:44 PM

That funny as hell! Does it come in other flavors too? I totally want a novelty box. Pretty please...

Posted by: Iris | Aug 30, 2006 1:49:44 PM

OMG, D. (Too many letters for you?) I'd totally be the meat in a Jon Stewart-Stephen Colbert sandwich. That reminds me--I should see about putting some Colbert Report episodes on my new 30GB iPod (which I've christened Ruiner).

Strawberry-scented Kleenex? Sounds like something the Japanese would dream up. That is, if they didn't have a taboo about blowing your nose in public...

Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert are HOTTIES!! Plus, SO FUCKING FUNNY. Did anyone else see the episode where Stephen made Jon walk a mile in Geraldo Rivera's moustache? I almost died laughing.

In fact, if not, here. You need to watch it.

Iris, it also comes in peach, mint, and lavender!! I will totally send you some. E-mail me your address, and you too, Maise, I have some things to send you as well... just as soon as I am able to get out of my bed.

Dierdre - You say you would be the meat in a Jon Stewart-Stephen Colbert sandwich? Well then, I guess you will enjoy this clip.

Stephen Colbert - NIN

Posted by: BD | Aug 30, 2006 3:49:12 PM

No, I said that, but I'm sure D. echoes my sentiment.

And that's hilarious.

Posted by: emerald527 | Aug 30, 2006 3:57:54 PM

Oh! My! God! That video! BD that was awesome.

Posted by: Iris | Aug 30, 2006 4:17:49 PM

Stephen Colbert is delicious. I had the hots for Stewart, too, till I found out he's 2 feet tall (seriously, is he shorter than Trent?).

But ohmigod, smart + funny = me in a puddle.

Posted by: JR | Aug 30, 2006 4:29:42 PM

Also, scented Kleenex? Can you tell when you're sick?

Posted by: JR | Aug 30, 2006 4:30:48 PM

Oops. Sorry Emerald, I must've scrolled too quickly and saw Dierdre's name instead of yours. What can I say? You can't expect me to visualize a Stewart-Colbert meat sandwich and read clearly at the same time.

Posted by: BD | Aug 30, 2006 4:55:04 PM

Oh dear lord, you people are gonna be the death of me.

1- Sorry to hear you're sick D. Hope you feel better soon, if you don't...I'll have to attack you with bad fanart or something.

2. THE RIVERIA REFLECTOR! I thought I was going to fall off my bed laughing at that. Too funny.

3. That Stephen vs. NIN was hilarious. Again, pain and Kitty off her bed.

Ilove you guys. You've become the reason I check my internet at all hours of the day.

Posted by: KittyKins | Aug 30, 2006 9:12:40 PM

Jesus, D. Ralph was a CARDINAL when Dane was killed. Can't you get anything right?

Posted by: Jane | Aug 30, 2006 9:56:30 PM

KittyKins you need to hit us up with the bad fan art whether Dierdre is feeling good, bad, or indifferent. Seriously.

And JR, how’s it going with your hog head project?

Posted by: Iris | Aug 31, 2006 8:20:50 AM

Oh don't worry Iris, I've been hitting Maise with it. You'll see my remarkble digital tracing skills. And possibly my crap attempts at actually freehanded Trenty goodness.

Posted by: KittyKins | Aug 31, 2006 8:29:06 AM

Yes, Iris, I have begun to gather materials for my homage to Closer.

And I have to say, what was Colbert's motivation in that video? It's awesome, and I didn't notice in the first watching that he is wielding a sword (now, Colbert wielding a sword in a suit is COMPLETELY different from APD Trent wielding a sword in a flowy getup).

I wish I knew the larger context it was in, but until then, I just love that whoever posted it titled it March of the Truth. Fantastic!

Posted by: JR | Aug 31, 2006 8:53:32 AM

Is that what it is he’s twirling around? A sword? I couldn’t tell because he’s moving too damn fast. I thought it was one of those little half mic stand things like Freddie Mercury used to rock. I guess I thought he was staying in character with the fact that he’s dancing around to a music video.

I just don’t get your sense of hotness though. PD Trent with a sword/ice pick, the perfect facial hair, and that entire set of the video, and singing about how his life is shit without out you doesn’t punch your buttons but a comedian in a suit with a plastic sword and moshing with himself in front of a blue screen does? I mean the “march of the truth” video is hilarious but come on. I don’t think you know what you’re missing out on with the PD era. But to each her own...

Posted by: Iris | Aug 31, 2006 9:36:09 AM

As a matter of fact JR, I’m wonder if your tune would change if Steven Colbert were to “walk a mile in PD Trent’s shoes”.

Posted by: Iris | Aug 31, 2006 9:44:25 AM

Let me just say, for the record, Iris, that Stephen Colbert is totally fucking SMOKIN' whatever he does, and that's because, exactly like our man Trent, he is a massive fucking genius.

Which, by the way, JR, exonerates Trent from a multitude of sins, none of which are captured in the bewilderingly scrumptious gothy splendor of "The Perfect Drug" video.

Just my .02

Posted by: Dierdre | Aug 31, 2006 10:32:30 AM

I love Stephen Colbert. Love. Absolutely love. But...the man does nothing for my nether regions. Him *and* Steve Carell. I love them both, but they stir nothing sexual in me. There. I said it.

Posted by: maise | Aug 31, 2006 11:16:21 AM

It's the deadpan and the suit. Oh god, the suit.

Yes, both are geniuses and that does forgive a multitude of sins. I'm willing to pretend that the APD era of Trent never existed, but you guys are making it hard for me to forget. Ick, ick, ick.

But does it make me love him less? No way. I think we all have experience on one level or another with people we cherish that have embarrassing chapters in their past--I have a few people I'm close to for whom this applies--but we try our best to forget about it. Until *other* people keeping bringing it up...

And Iris, I would love to see Colbert walk a mile in Reznor's APD look (hell, he's already got the sword), if only because I know he'd send it up in just the right fashion. I'd be willing to bet he sees the hilarity of it as I do.

Posted by: JR | Aug 31, 2006 11:32:06 AM

And by both of them, I mean Colbert and Reznor, not Colbert and Carell.

Posted by: JR | Aug 31, 2006 11:33:26 AM

And now I'm sad that I have to wait three whole hours before I can see the "March of the Truth" thing.

Posted by: maise | Aug 31, 2006 11:49:22 AM

I'd say it's worth it Maise. Funny as hell! I even did one of those hoarse laughing things while watching it.
