e'eryday seems a little closer

i feel like i should write something here now. whoops i just have nothing to say.
i can tell you that it is BALLS TO THE WALL FREEZING out and my roommate and i decided not to turn on the heat until absolutely necessary. i think neither of us wants to be the first one to cave. this means i am WEARING GLOVES IN THE HOUSE. whateverrrrrrrrrrrr.

i ordered twenty dollars of thai food and ate the whole thing BUT i don't feel completely awful over it because i packed sweatin to the oldies vhs in my suitcase for vacation. whateverrrrrrrrrrr

i'm working on a mix called "nice. and. easy" if i don't lose my mind before i finish i will listen to this mix when i feel like i am LOSING MY FUCKING MIND. whateverrrrrrr

i found out today, the day i came closest to getting in an actual car accident, that my brakes really aren't that great. really looking forward to testing them out tomorrow in the SNOW on the THRUWAY. whateverrrrrrrrrr.

i'm packing only sweater dresses for my entire ten days upstate. i plan to go to all the thrift stores and buy every sweater dress each one has and wear only sweater dresses (and maybe wool pant suits) for the rest of the winter who cares what anyone wears, whateverrrrrrrrrr

loneliness, loneliness, it's such a waste of time

so i'm in finals week at school. i keep trying to remind myself why i am doing this but truthfully can't think of any reasons! oops! because i am the ultimate procrastinator i have been downloading music like crazy and it is truly the only bright spot in my life currently (other than that dim light at the end of this weeks tunnel (i'll be out on wednesday, clutching my sanity with dear life)) below are two songs which i would like to really be on the same level with. let's call them the framework which i am going to build my winter break inside of. nice. and. easy.

whelp, i can't find the other song i wanted to share with you. its linda ronstadt's cover of little feat's 'roll um easy' just praying i can roll easy right into my vacation. bless.

Why don't you come to your senses
You've been out riding fences for so long now
Oh you're a hard one
But I know that you've got your reasons
These things that are pleasing you will hurt you somehow

Don't you draw the queen of diamonds boy
She'll beat you if she's able
The queen of hearts is always your best bet
Well it seems to me some fine things
Have been laid upon your table
But you only want the things that you can't get

you know you ain't getting younger
Your pain and your hunger are driving you home
And freedom, oh freedom
Well that's just some people talking
Your prison is walking through this world all alone

Don't your feet get cold in the wintertime
Sky won't snow and the sun won't shine
It's hard to tell the night time from the day
You're losing all your highs and lows
Ain't it funny how the feeling goes away

Why don't you come to your senses
Come down from your fences
Open the gate
It may be raining
But there's a rainbow above you
You better let somebody love you
Let somebody love you
Before it's too late

sunday night fitness vol. 4

i'm alive when i'm with you

from 1989:

to 1984:

to 1978:

to 1968:

to 1965:

to 1956:

the history of pop music is the best puzzle on earth and i hope i never stop putting it together

close our eyes and feel the light coming down for the night




raining raining raining raining i'm tired but i am not defeated and i will smile my way through all of this you just wait and see you you you (you) i dare you to just stare at me don't blink you might miss the moment i flash my first molars

(i wanted to tell you about thanksgiving, i wanted to tell you about my weekend, i wanted to load you, like icing, into a pastry bag and then extrude you. then you could understand. but maybe it was more like a perfume atomizer. maybe it was more like a fireplace bellows. perhaps it was a squirtgun. a supersoaker. nerf gun! either/or it was a force and then i was out and walking on a wheel again. remember my smile! it sort of makes the whole image okay, no? i still live from day to day. day to day. its the piece of my tree life that i have not forgotten. nothing can defeat us. one day and then another day. of this i mostly solemnly swear)
