My last day of work starts in about an hour. I am excited to be once more a member of the unemployed community.
Also, tomorrow morning, I leave for FSC. So long, Emerson College! Ha!
I've been burning CDs like a madman today in an attempt to free up harddrive space on my computer. New additions: Lightning Bolt "Ride the Skies," John Zorn "Grand...

Emerson film student you say. My big sister told me to stay away from your kind. Anyway, I was just checking up on the Boston boys and thought I'd say hello.

I've foolishly followed the urgings of my friends...
I've been writing poetry.
May the ghost of T.S. Eliot beat me blue with contempt.

Tonight is my last radio show. I'm kinda sad about it. If anyone in the Boston area is reading this, I'll be on from 2-6 a.m. on 88.9 FM. Give a listen.

"Kala Naak," the Snake's Tongue.

Jump up and grab me by the throat,
pull me close,
gleaming wild maniac glances into my eyes,
and set off an electrical chain reaction.
Shoot lightning through my brain.
I yearn for the thrill of ECT.

Rain is falling, spattering, sputtering, pounding hard against the streets of Boston. Alleys flow with microcosmic rivers, drains clogged with salt and dead leaves. It's a nice night for a swim.
Today has unravelled itself thusly:
-no History of the U.S. final exam.
-last Introduction to Visual Arts class. Watched most of Cronenberg's "Dead Ringers" for some reason.
-bought a Thompson-esque cigarette...

The date (or whatever you call dinner and a movie between friends) went rather well. "Bowling for Columbine" amazed and astounded me, and, at points, nearly brought me to the brink of tears. Still, it's nice to know that you can live without fear.

Ashley asked me if I believe in predestination. I told her that I believe in synchronicity -- things happen for a...

I WILL get through it though. I have to now! Dear Lord, it will be my nemesis otherwise. It's like the Canterbury Tales, nearly killed me, hated it, still read it. The Bible, I'm about half done. Maybe I just have insomnia. I always wonder what compels people to read what they do, that's all. And later I can never quite figure it out.

I draw the line at certain Russian writers, however.

Ah, the Canterbury Tales... I just got a beautiful copy of Boccaccio's "Decameron" (from which Chaucer shamelessly plucked many of the Canterbury tales). You should read it sometime.

Where are you going? Where have you been?
I've got one week left before I turn my back on the gristmill that is Emerson College. I'm going to miss plenty of people here, but good riddance to the rest. So long, infernally-clanking radiator. So long to the window hidden in the corner that looks out over the dumpsters behind my building. So long...

Saw two jazz performances at NECM tonight. The first was by far the better of the two. The lineup: 5 saxophones, 2 upright basses, 2 drumkits and a pianist.

Feeling incredibly on top of things for the first time in a while.
Justin suggested the appropriation of Barber-Shop music for the revolutionary struggle. "(A) Capella," if you will.
"If you hate something, make it your...

Winter wonderland: Boston's weather is cold and bleak, and the sidewalks are salted to the pallor of bleached bones. Kinda looks like a creepy old ghost town. Charming, really.
