Do you realize how many words can fit into a second?
I only ask because
I miss when I used
None at all.

I've been reading a bunch of Andre Breton's work lately...I'll probably add some quotes to this later. I've finished Mad Love and Nadja, and I'm halfway through Earthlight.

Anybody ever hear of this guy?

You are a silversmith, you are cutting me like diamond
I want to make a mix cd for someone, I think.

I don't know who.

It's just a nice passtime, because it makes me think and try to guess about what a person might like to hear and what I might like them to hear and what order might be neatest to hear things in and how to balance things nicely or maybe give them a track of an artist they love that they've never heard or haven't heard in that context.

I like those sorts of things and processes I guess.

Track list of a disc I made for a friend this spring:

Doo Right- Man Man
How Will I Ever Find My Way Home- British Sea Power
Promises Like Pie Crust- Carla Bruni
Old Flames- Harlem Shakes
One Step Inside Doesn't Mean You Understand- The Notwist
General Lafayette! You Are Not Alone!- Lost At Sea
The Cowbell Song- AM Syndicate
Lovely Guilty- Visqueen
Lull- Andrew Bird
Boys, You Won't- The Wrens
Saturday (Reprise)- Cut Copy
Light in the Room- Caleb Engstrom
Summer Romance- The Redwalls
Feed the Tree- Belly
Roscoe- Midlake
M'bife- Amadou & Mariam
These Few Presidents- Why?
Slip Is Showing- Annie Hayden
Going Blind- The Go-Betweens
Take Me Lonely- Eastern Lane
Children- Delta Spirit

I regret not putting any Silent Years on, or any Ra Ra Riot(despite the fact the cds owner knows there stuff.) But I'm pretty happy with the ratio of smaller to larger and local to national acts on the disc. I also like that I listen to most of this stuff a good deal, but I think the cd sticks pretty closely to the person's musical tastes without hitting too many names they've heard before.

The moon distorted in the sky
by the faint showing of clouds
like a
blurred fingerprint
like my
blurred fingerprint
i've yet to reach outside this
fuzzy identity

Did a little writing today, here's a bit I kind of liked, opinion(s)?

And I would name my son Carlos
If I had the pretty accent
To make it sound so nice

And he would be worldly
And still love his mother
With the pretty accent

But I come from nowhere
So his name will be Jordan or Mark
And there will be no accent to remember me by.

PS- Seriously check out the Harlem Shakes and Why? if you haven't before. Also, Ra Ra Riot. I'm quite obsesssssssssed. Lemme know if you like um, too--we can gush together or something haha.

I am back at school.

Sandwich-good book-good conversations-cozy top bunk bed-walls covered in neat things-walking everywhere-options of things to do at night-parlor chillllin-listening to killer music in a rather uninterrupted fashion.

I am home.

Us Kids Know
I elbowed the press at work yesterday.

I have burns in two places around my elbow now, but I have no idea how they both touched the thing at the same time.

424 degreesssssssssssssssssss= 2 red splotchy splotches.

On the plus side; I've been makin loads of stuff (okay maybe like, 3 things) lately. It's the excitement in my life, though, haha.

My new roomie knows my old roomie.
ISU continually proves to me how small the world really is. Sheesh.

And finally; fog is fantasssssssssssssssssmic and so is the weather lately.
Oh---and I bought a red plaid lumberjack shirt. If I wear it with my new ear flappy hat I may just be asked for directions to the nearest woods/Canada/flapjackery.

The End.

I walked to Emma Mccarthy this weekend--it was perfectly emptily slushy lovely.
Wake this
Watch it go-a-go-go

Manipulate these
See where we forgot to wash

Letting dirty skin
Decide we are no good

we are no good
no good
no good.

(PS- At the park I got to slide and jump and hop and dance around because no one else was there! Best park experience, I think.)

Happy Post!
The Envy Corps= Gooooooooooooooooooooooooodness.


We stood right against the stage. Britney Rover was there helping them out with he orchestra skillz in 'Before the Goldrush'. Ege got told he was holding up the show when he and the drummer began to discuss the similarities in their glasses. He was then picked as the volunteer when they asked for one; so he got to go up on stage and play some percussion-i-ness for them. They gave him a cookie. Afterwards we stayed around and talked with them a little, and got a group picture. I was about to explode with happiness at this point. Joy joy joy!

I bought a christmas present there, and myself the General Sherman CD, and Ege bought Leap Year's disc.

PS- If you brought in any sort of thing like an ipod or thumb drive or blank cd, they put Dwell (their upcoming UK album) and bonus tracks onto it for FREE because they kinda felt bad that they hadn't released anything stateside for a while. LOVE!

They also did their New Order cover again, and this time I was smart enough to video the darned thing, cuz, uh, it's crazy-amazing, is the thing.

I don't do this
I don't get attached
I don't ever just trust that, in situations like these, things will just work out
I don't let myself overlook things I know about
but I did this time because I figured it couldn't hurt
but oh my god it hurts.

I'm really sorry for all the crypticness-but this is probably about what I would write in a journal at this moment and that's what this is, right?
I mean, you're welcome to ask questions and maybe I'll tell you more and maybe not but this is what I feel like writing for now.
9:38 am
Harder this time to take it in stride
My heart didn't exactly have time to get involved--but you can still break hope, right?

It hurts like you can, anyway.

Here to breath rust through whatever metal makes this work
Break is a funny thing.

I'll slowly adjust, or something.

A jumbled mess
I never swallow whole
can't remember to handle with care even when
the structure promises to tear like tissue
it seems too old to be considered
too hard to decide what is and is not to be forgiven
coming apart like tender flesh from bone
a shiver reveals
no trust left for paper walls
I squint my eyes and will away memory
I’d imagined you taller
and less willing.

Best thing I've read in a NON-Popjustice article lately:

"Prince Fans United hopes that Prince and his army of lawyers will reconsider, but we figure it's highly unlikely seeing as it's obvious he's lost his damn mind."

thank you, AOL News. You've served your purpose for the day.

this is the place where I save face
this is the spot where I jump off
this is the bar where I lose heart
over the pain and I'm past the bleeding
it's not the tracks it's where they're leading

this is my best king carnavore
this is my scream it's just a dull roar
these are my hands I've shown you before
over the pain and I'm past the bleeding
it's not the tracks it's where they're leading

hasn't been so bad yet I'll do it again
error of my ways, maybe one of these days

it's irrelevant I'm an elephant she's a mouse x2


I think this may be one of my favorite songs. Their Car Button Cloth album is really growing on me. I dig the vocals and the bits where the songs drop into something simpler.

it's nice, is all.

Current Mood: eh
