Clearly...judging by the amount of time that has gone by since I've last been here...I'm losing my subkulture edge.

This frightens me...

Does this mean I am getting old?

Disaster area
2006-11-29 08:12:23 ET

My love life currently is resembling the opening credits sequence to the remake of "The Hills Have Eyes"...Bombs everywhere and oh so pretty surreal music piping over the disaster area.

This, I oddly find funny.

Beautiful Disaster ~ Kelly Clarkson

"He drowns in his dreams
An exquisite extreme I know
Hes as damned as he seems
And more heaven than a heart could hold
And if I try to save him
My whole world could cave in
It just ain't right
It just ain't right

Oh and I don't know
I don't know what is after
But he's so beautiful
Such a beautiful disaster
And if I could hold on
Through the tears and the laughter
Would it be beautiful?
Or just a beautiful disaster

He's magic and myth
As strong as what I believe
A tragedy with
More damage than a soul should see
And do I try to change him?
So hard not to blame him
Hold on tight
Hold on tight

Oh 'cause I don't know
I don't know what is after
But hes so beautiful
Such a beautiful disaster
And if I could hold on
Through the tears and the laughter
Would it be beautiful?
Or just a beautiful disaster

I'm longing for love and the logical
But he's only happy hysterical
I'm waiting for some kind of miracle
Waited so long
So long

Hes soft to the touch
But frayed at the end he breaks
Hes never enough
And still he's more than I can take

Oh 'cause I don't know
I don't know what is after
But he's so beautiful
Such a beautiful disaster
And if I could hold on
Through the tears and the laughter
Would it be beautiful?
Or just a beautiful disaster

Hes beautiful
Such a beautiful disaster"

Ah, but what a wonderful show we put on.

Jerk made me cry.

I knew this would happen. This is why I told myself not to get attached.

**sigh** "Nothing gold can stay".

**sigh** Here we go again. Up by the boot straps, put on the iron shirt and all that jazz...

Humans are amazingly resilient.

What's that saying, fool me once, shame on you...fool me twice, shame on me? Ya. I think that's how it goes.


"Six months of separation
And you never laugh when I call anymore
The sound of your voice echoes in my head
Like I am dead but not in heaven

All the fancy places we used to go
How far away, like a dream I used to know
And so you wonder why I cry?

Six hours flying home
And there's no warm hand there to meet me
Only the sound of baggage carousel
Is the only sound that greets me

Staring out the window on the ride home
Faces stare at me as if they know I am alone
And so you wonder, why I cry?

Six years in New York City
And im back on the block,
Where I say I'm living
People I know by name, don't know me
I never met them to begin with

Opening the door down on president
Counting the postcards that I wrote
But never sent
And so you wonder why I cry?" - Vic.

Back from the Dead
2006-09-26 16:28:02 ET

Been a long time. Just wanted to let everyone know I'm still alive. Sorry I haven't been around. I'm wicked busy since all my drama. I'm posting these lyrics for safe keeping because the song that made me think of it all after all this time should be preserved. Hope you are all well. My masters classes are killing me. I've never been so busy.
Buh byes!

Feels Just Like It Should - Pat Green

"Let's jump in my El Camino
Roll the windows down
Thought we could see what kind of trouble
we can find out on this messed up little town

The Boss on the radio
Take whatever comes
We'll go flying down the highway with my arms around you singing Born To Run

It feels just like it should
Must be some kind of miracle
Like I got sun on my face and the rain ain't never going to fall
It feels so good
Oh It is almost spiritual
Tomorrow's nowhere in sight
Right now, right here tonight
It feels just like it should

Well you got your good looks
And you got your style
And I'd drown here in this ccean
Just to have you float my boat for a while
I got a reputation
Don't you worry about that
Just give me a chance and we'll never gonna ever look back

And it feels just like it should
It must be some kind of miracle
Like I got sun on my face and rain that ain't never going to fall
It feels so good
Man it's almost spiritual
Tomorrow's nowhere in sight
Right now, right here tonight
It feels just like it should

Maybe Romeo gets the girl this time
I guess everybody gets the chance to shine
And tonight is mine

It feels just like it should
Must be some kind of miracle
Like I got sun on my face and the rain it ain't never going to fall
Feels so good
Awww it's almost spiritual
Tomorrow's nowhere in sight
Right now, right here tonight
It feels just like it should"

If I stand
2006-08-08 05:24:50 ET

If I Stand - Jars of Clay

"There's more that rises in the morning than the sun
And more that shines in the night than just the moon
There's more than just this fire here that keeps me warm
In a shelter that is larger than this room

And there's a loyalty that's deeper than mere sentiments
And a music higher than the songs that I can sing
Stuff of Earth competes for the allegiance
I owe only to the Giver of all good things

So if I stand let me stand on the promise that you will pull me through
And if I can't, let me fall on the grace that first brought me to You
So if I sing let me sing for the joy that has born in me these songs
And if I weep let it be as a man who is longing for his home

And there's more that dances on the prairies than the wind
And more that pulses in the ocean than the tide
There's a love that's fiercer than the love between friends
More gentle than a mother's when her baby's at her side

And there's a loyalty that's deeper than mere sentiments
And a music higher than the songs that I can sing
The stuff of Earth competes for the allegence
I owe only to the Giver of all good things

So if I stand let me stand on the promise that You will pull me through
And if I can't let me fall on the grace that first brought me to You
And if I sing let me sing for the joy that has born in me these songs
And if I weep let it be as a man who is longing for his home

So if I stand let me stand on the promise You will pull me through
And if I can't let me fall on the grace that first brought me to You
And if I sing let me sing for the joy that has born in me these songs
And if I weep let it be as a man who is longing for his home

And if I weep let it be as a man who is longing for home"

Huh...

Something that I heard today and took deeply to heart. (It's a twist on "mother's advice".)

"Girls should always look for a man who loves them more than they could possibly ever love the man and who loves God even more than that. If they would do this, they would never be unhappy."

Interesting quote...
2006-06-30 07:01:39 ET

"In a completely rational society, the best of us would aspire to be teachers and the rest of us would have to settle for something less because passing on civilization from one generation to the next ought to be the highest honor and highest responsibility anyone could have." - Lee Iacoca

Thanks a lot "Cowboy". (Smiles sadly) Now I'll be sad for a week.

Please pardon these lyrics. It was on the radio this morning. You shouldn't cry and drive. It's dangerous.

******************************************

"Who else is gonna bring you a broken arrow?
Who else is gonna bring you a bottle of rain?
There he goes moving across the water.
There he goes turning my whole world around, around.

Do you feel what I feel?
Ah can you see what I see?
Can you cut behind the mystery?
I will meet you by the witness tree;
Leave the whole world behind.

I want to come when you call.
I'll get to you if I have to crawl.
They can't hold me with these iron walls.
We got mountains to climb, to climb."

HELP ME! PLEEEEEEEESE!
2006-06-27 09:22:47 ET

OH FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THAT'S GOOD!
I can not get these lyrics out of my head...For TWO WEEKS ALREADY! Enough is enough!
I turn to you, my cyberfriends, for I think only you can help me!

Where have I heard these ska lyrics before?! What is the name of the song?!

They go something like this...

"I may walk through the valley of the shadow
and I walk through the violence (?) in the ghetto.

keep on going down the open road
sprits will carry you wherever you go

there's one thing that I will always know
spirits will follow you wherever you go

spirits will carry you straight until the day that they bury you
and everywhere that you go and everywhere that you've gone
spirits be there to carry you on."

Then there's a bit about "you're only lost" something something.

I scanned the picture of Hello Kitty off of my CD case. It turned out pretty alright. I think. I want to make it perfectly clear that I did not make her and I do not know who did but I give full credit to that person. Like I said, I found her months ago and I think the website may now be extinct. Isn't she sweet though?

How rude!
2006-06-21 15:43:57 ET

Ok, so MONTHS ago I found a picture online of "Hello Kitty rudegirl". I thought she was just too cute all in her little fedora and 2tone bow...Of course I didn't save the picture I only printed it and pasted it to my CD case. Now that I want to blow it up and stick it to a t-shirt do you think I can find it on the internet? Of course not! An hour of searching google images and I've come up with nothing. How aggravating. :o(

Can't help myself
2006-06-14 17:47:41 ET

Pardon this poetic posting...I can't help myself. It's self-expression I guess.

Untitled #1

You fall from my memory;
Gracefully;
as a star from the perling of mother sky.
Soundless;
You burn in the atmosphere of time.
You are but a moment,
a flash,
captured amid one million flickering lights
reflected in my eyes.
Never to be forgotten,
but gone just the same.

Untitled #2

Memories of what once was
and never will be
drip from my body
as wax.
They cover me and change me.
No longer the straight and unburned candle
I am melted, manipulated and formed,
though still burning.
The memories that slide from my skin
collect in pools at my feet
and make me who I am.
