...for the days where you feel just like this, and you want it to last a lil bit longer.

1.  stereo total "l'amour a trois"
2.  grandaddy "am180"
3.  the cure "the 13th"
4.  m83 "don't save us from the flames"
5.  manitoba "crayon"
6.  u2 "the sweetest thing"
7.  genetic world "breathe"

half an hour of dizzyingly cheery upbeat music is usually as much as i can take.  at that point you should be outside running through sprinklers or tumbling through flowery fields like a ADHD nine year old anyways, not inside lissening to music.

they will recieve their rewards [Jul. 12th, 2005|01:57 am]
heat lightning and unmade beds

i put together playlists and make mixtapes like the perfect one is gonna conjure up the perfect girl for me

instead of vice versa

am i the only one to pretend that i'm not shaping exactly who i want based upon devices as clumsy and intransigent as musical taste?

it's so frustrating to be unable to remedy my faults by simply acknowledging them

it's so frustrating to realize i don't know how to remedy them

it's so frustrating to realize maybe i'm too lazy to try and find out how

apologies go out, yet remain as worthless as...well, hey this here mixtape

1. the stars - elevator love letter
2. polaris - waiting for october
3. the shins - kissing the lipless
4. the rentals - california
5. clap your hands say yeah! - in this home on ice
6. the magic numbers - forever lost
7. the pixies - wave of mutilation
8. rolling stones - time is on my side
9. wilderness - your hands
10. modest mouse - wild packs of family dogs
11. preston school of industry - walk of a girl
12. pinback - tripoli
13. aimee mann - save me
14. placebo - lady of the flowers

I have a scanner at work [May. 25th, 2005|01:24 am]

...and I found this photo on the ground, on my way to the interview for my new job.

But where was it taken? And what is at the end of the trail?

The print had been run over at least once, causing the scratches and tears. Fortunately, the image itself wasn't too damaged.

raison d'etre [May. 2nd, 2005|12:54 am]
heat lightning and unmade beds


to even suppose to have a reason or due justification for an emotion seems like a funny concept. all of us are led to believe that we should be able to reign in emotions and run them through the logic algorithms in our heads in order to determine whether they should be displayed or not. when alcohol, drug intake, exhaustion or simple frusturation override the normal protocol and emotions are instantly displayed, against our own intentions of keeping them secret, the reactions are mainly incredulous. after a few minutes, perhaps disappointment in the persons inability to "keep the lid on" or, on the other hand, some empathy. but, what i consistently fail to see is any genuine sympathy, and i don't know if it's because we truly cannot remember for whatever reason any point in time where we had the same sort of "breakdown" or if it's only been ingrained that such things are meant for a more private arena.

if you need to yell, yell
if you need to cry, cry

and i realize my own deficiencies when it comes to understanding that, even as i write. rolled eyes and quiet whispers are the weapons we wield at those times, and i think it's time we put them down.

-stuck up with all the leanings christ'd appreciate but would be berated for condoning, all the stirring cries we give when we clear our eyes are nothing in step with our mucky headed workdays and fuck you fuck you weekend hangovers-

when we sit outside the girls will all smile and only wagging tails will pass our broken down couch

heat lightning and unmade beds

all of the great books i tend to dig out of drawers with intentions of re-reading already have bookmarks halfway through them. and i never know what to do in this situation, begin all all all over again, or continue on, even if don't recollect what i've missed.

the doves "snowden" has a great dreamy intro that fits it's title.
