A Case Of You [Nov. 4th, 2004|02:35 pm]
Willful Suspension of Disbelief
[oh, wouldn't you like to know |reflective]

Just before our love got lost you said
"I am as constant as a northern star"
And I said, "Constant in the darkness
Where's that at?
If you want me I'll be in the bar"

On the back of a cartoon coaster
In the blue TV screen light
I drew a map of Canada
Oh Canada
And I sketched your face on it twice

Oh you are in my blood like holy wine
Oh and you taste so bitter but you taste so sweet
Oh I could drink a case of you
I could drink a case of you darling
Still I'd be on my feet
I'd still be on my feet
Oh I am a lonely painter
I live in a box of paints
I'm frightened by the devil
And I'm drawn to those ones that ain't afraid
I remember that time that you told me, you said
"Love is touching souls"
Surely you touched mine
"Cause part of you pours out of me
In these lines from time to time"

Oh you are in my blood like holy wine
And you taste so bitter but you taste so sweet
Oh I could drink a case of you
I could drink a case of you darling
Still I'd be on my feet
I'd still be on my feet

I met a woman
She had a mouth like yours
She knew your life
She knew your devils and your deeds
And she said
"Go to him, stay with him if you can
Oh but be prepared to bleed"
Oh but you are in my blood you're my holy wine
Oh and you taste so bitter but you taste so sweet
I could drink a case of you darling
Still I'd be on my feet
Still I'd be on my feet
I'd still be on my feet

My heart's the bitter buffalo... [Oct. 24th, 2004|09:46 pm]

[la musica |Azure Ray]

The events of this weekend have caused me to think a great deal. I am in awe at some of the events that have transpired; in awe because there is so much in my life that seems so real right now. And by this I mean so real in a "wake-up and realize that life isn't simple and pretty and reasonable." I realize now that people don't always mean well.
I used to live in this fantasy world where I sincerely believed that people made decisions and behaved in ways that were in accordance with genuine goodness and respect. I guess I enjoyed thinking that people thought about others and the consequences of their actions. Also, I thought a friend was for the most part a friend for life unless something horrible and unforgivable happened. I have been alerted to my many fallacies. And wow, what a miserable, disheartening revelation.

This morning I woke up and my eyes were swollen shut.

All I want right now is a Chipotle chicken burrito.

I want to watch the following documentaries: Paradise Lost, Spellbound, The Filth and The Fury, Outfoxed, One Day In September, The Fog of War - Eleven Lessons from the Life of Robert S. McNamara, Capturing The Friedmans

Band Obsession of the Week: The American Analog Set

Oh yeah, and Jon Stewart is a hard ass? (see below)

*******************************************************************************
STEWART: Now, this is theater. It's obvious. How old are you?
CARLSON: Thirty-five.
STEWART: And you wear a bow tie.

CARLSON: You had John Kerry on your show and you sniff his throne and you're accusing us of partisan hackery?
STEWART: Absolutely.
CARLSON: You've got to be kidding me. He comes on and you...
STEWART: You're on CNN. The show that leads into me is puppets making crank phone calls.

CARLSON: I do think you're more fun on your show. Just my opinion.
CARLSON: OK, up next, Jon Stewart goes one on one with his fans...
STEWART: You know what's interesting, though? You're as big a dick on your show as you are on any show.

Wow, the contemplation that took place. The decision to create an entry on livejournal... for it's been so long. I don't know what I really think of this so-called journal anymore. I might continue to update or I might create another journal... can what I want to say be adequately stated? Or kept confidential if need be?

Quandary.

I love that word.

Soon I will be 22 years old... why is this such a depressing thought? It helps to know that I will spend half of my birthday in Zurich, Switzerland and the other half in Naples, Italy but to tell you the truth, I feel like an old hag at 22...
