Spring makes everything better.
Being so afflicted, perhaps I should move further south. But I don't think it would be quite the same.
Something about the way my brain works. Everything just seems to be glowing right now.
And why can't I ever fall in love in the spring? Always in the fall. It seems symptomatic of something.

Right now all my problems...

Lately I'm in the sort of mood that can only end in something drastic. Murder. Suicide. Selling all my belonging and moving to Seattle. Unfortunately, none of these things really seem like options. What can you do that's drastic, but won't ruin your life (further)? Perhaps I need to start harvesting the organs of local drunks. I don't know. This is...

I only question my motives so you won't have to.

It occurs to me that I haven't respected my peers since elementary school, possibly 7-8 grade (although that was more a matter of hating/pitying/fearing my peers). In a perverse way, I kinda miss that.

March is going out like a fucking chameleon. It's not bad weather, just bland. Bland is...

I know it's old hat to complain about the weather in Minnesota, but goddamn. You can't turn your back on that bastard for ten minutes, I tell ya. I wouldn't even care that much, but I had these plans. Sitting on the patio at the Local on St. Patty's, so we could smoke. Spending spring break wandering Uptown, browsing used book...

Finally, updation.
Making up words is funtastic, even if it causes me some chagrin...English major syndrome, you know. Ooo baby, make it hurt so good.

Spring has sprang, and goddamns is it good. Windows open, fans whirring, the lingering smells of winter nasty and too many cigarettes getting washed away. On the horizon: reading in the sun, drinking on the bluffs over the river...

Updating for the sake of updating.

Just been very bored lately. Winter.
Reading a lot, since I can't seem to write.
McCullers, O'Brien, Ellis, a number of randoms.
All good, nothing earth-moving.

Waiting on a number of albums.
Trying not to crush on a certain girl.
Nothing changes.

Incidentally, I don't believe in Beatles, either.

This is why I shouldn't read contemporary authors.

Kerouac wrote his masterpieces in about a day. I hate him for that.
Well over a year since I've written anything but the occassional long, drunken rant about my life (and that can only be considered 'art' in the sense that street theatre is 'art,' which is to say it's not, but reflects some...

i used to freak out about the fact that ani difranco was who she was at 19. and that leonard cohen had a country band in his early years, and i've already surpassed these ages.

but then, i think that's nonsense, and do currently. 27 is so young. 23 is a helluva lot younger.

the end of last year, a certain amount of sucess came out and bit my ass--writing for a local fashion magazine, a circulation of 10,000 in print, with 125,000 hits on the website per month. people ARE reading what i'm writing. it's amazing. and when i published my book, i was 22. that's been roughly a 5 year gap of relative suckiness/obscurity. now, i VIP and press access to most every fashion related event in town.

this is not to brag, but to point out how things happen suddenly.

you're gonna be alright.
judas:
and as for my winter, it's been the same old, same old. sucky breakup in january after brief relationship that didn't really work from day one, followed by a dramatic uptick in positive circumstance in february.

the usual.

I don't miss where I come from, but each night I dream about being back home.

i dream a lot about my elementary school and house in aberdeen. i don't know why. maybe it's just the fact that that's my childhood. whatever it is, i wake with a bit of an ache from it.

how's your winter been, given that it's not much of a winter?

i'm still around. just not typing

I've definitely had enough. Woke up on Tuesday with what seemed at first to be the worst hangover of my life, turned out to be a cold. I miss my soft bed, I'm tired of this goddamn shower with no water pressure. Bloody hell.

Made this mix. May put it up for download later, right now I don't even remember it's...
