Love Is Still

As I recorded this, I wanted to pay a bit of homage to Neutral Milk Hotel’s “Ghost” which I don’t think I really did. But boy, it took a lot out of me.

And I can’t help but wonder, how much did it take out of the band? How much did it take out of Jeff Mangum? And, perhaps, is that why he stopped making music?


Not Creative At All

January 22, 2008

A cover, and the original

Yeah, not creative at all.  No wonder both were made the same night…

Another Girl

January 20, 2008

I don’t want to go into details.
But who knew this could be so much fun.
I wonder why I spent so much time being shy (that almost rhymed!)

Go Ringo at 1:35!

A Few Conclusions

January 18, 2008

– The city is *so* cool. I still don’t think I’m ready to live there, but getting there is a simple as driving down a few roads, hopping on a bus (or train).
– I think I am, however, ready to work there.
– My college friends are still living in college. Which makes sense, as they are still going to college. Which is why I don’t want to live with them.
– What is ‘sunshine-folk-pop’?
– What is action through realisim?
– Those Tchaikovsky records.
– Jens Lekman, who I love right now, wanted to work at a Bingo Parlor, instead of continue with music.
– Wayne Coyne (head Flaming Lip) worked at a Long John Silver’s for 11 years.
– David Lynch had a Paper Route while filming Eraserhead, which took him six years to make.
– Darren Aronofsky was 27 when he started making Pi, which was released when he was 29.
– Ergo, I can wait.
– Older women don’t act immature (debatable)
– Younger women do act immature
– And to think, she would’ve been a nice “artsy” person to hang with…

So Creative…

Even I was thought it was real.

Le sigh.  No first date.

Which means only one thing – bad movie watching time!

The Best Advice

January 9, 2008

Please point out the error of my ways, when needed.

If I get caught talking to myself, I like to tell people I’m the best person to talk to.
Once though, while being witty, a young woman pointed out what I was looking for – and thus, the best person to talk to is not myself.

Oh No, Not Again

January 5, 2008

I want this out not in me

If I put this much thought into it, there must be something there.

As I left today, I couldn’t help but feel the same…

It’s These Memories

January 1, 2008

  How often is it that we get to have a perfect night, without doing a damn thing? I didn’t tell my parents I was going out, cause I didn’t. I didn’t waste gasoline, I didn’t spend money on items I want but don’t need, and I didn’t eat excess food. Well, I didn’t pay for excess food. Granted, a cup of coffee would’ve been nice…
  It’s these nights that will one day become memories, and I’ll probably wonder if in the future I will ever have one with my next of kin. I’m not saying that my child(ren) will grow up irresponsible or hating me, but who knows what will happen by then. At this rate, we’ll have our own television screen inside our computer, which is how we’ll communicate. And at this rate, we won’t have the Dick Clarks or the Carson Dailys (ugh) with special guests counting down to midnight. We’ll just have countdown sites, and maybe stand in the same 10x10x10 room just so we can see each other at the moment it hits midnight. And then we’ll go away, because the computer will make us uncomfortable around humans.
  But that’s exactly the point. I didn’t worry one thing about my future, my career, or my concerns with the human race tonight. It was just this “energy” throughout the world. We can begin anew. And we have.

No new song, no new video. Not creative at all.
