quote me

Today I watched my brother try to kill a mosquito.
As I was enthralled with reading about the alternative Waldorf Education (which is quite spiritual, interconnectedness of life in the cosmos yadda yadda), I jokingly said "No Peter, it's a SENTIENT BEING!" and then I ended with .. "and it needs your blood to live"

"Sentient being, needs your blood."

I HAVE TO PACK for france

PS- Joni Mitchell makes me cry

MORE Love at first song, Today:

Mind of a Toy- Visage

mmmm Licorice allsorts! i can't stop listening to this wierd-ass song.
I also love abandoned toys. My art is all about abandoned toys: (for some reason it won't let this pic be uploaded 90 degs how its supposed to be. . . .)

....I was led to that cool video through reading about the New Romantic movement... every band affiliated with it excites me a lot.

Love at first listen

Yes, sometimes it takes a while to warm up to a song, and it grows onto you.

Other times, it is love at first listen. Definitely a favorite feeling, and a rare one.
Here's some memorable ones:

Start out with the Montreal band TIGA, I just love the video, love the song:

the wonderfully androgynous Ariel Pink: Gray Sunset

Department of Eagles: No One Does it Like You

Elliott Smith: Between the Bars

Nina Simone: Love me or Leave me (that Piano solo is lovely)

Thank Hank- R. Stevie Moore (written by Victor Lovera)

Russian Girls are Looking for YOU!

Just wow.

Thank Jehovah, for Kung-Fu Bicycles

Talking to an old friend of mine on the MSNs, I was sent this strange documentary about people who write wierd songs, send them in, and get them recorded (for a sizable charge). Some songs are serious, some are downright STRANGE!

Here's a taste:


Here's the real doc, if you so desire to see:

I too am a songwriter, among other things. At the moment, I am battling tendinitis, an inflammation of the tendons in my wrist (painful). Which means NO GUITAR, UKE, FIDDLE, BANJO, or lifting anything.

I got this from strumming 1 4 5 chord progressions at unusually high velocities. I went to a bluegrass festival.

When I am feeling particularly inspired (music or art or thought), I really don't want to shower (and neglect to do so).. I don't take care of my overall appearance and wish I didn't have a stupid body to take care of. I'd like to stick it in a vault and pull it out when I need to use it.

I had this same thought after watching the gut wrenching Food Inc. documentary about HOW BAD factory farming is and how its everywhere now: again my gut-instinct was "I WANT NO BODY TO FEED so I don't have to part take in this." I think my wish is to be an ethereal spirit that is a set of eyes and a mind, a voice and hands to play music.

I wish I never had to sleep or eat or fuck. I'd like to erase all appetite and just read, speak and sing.

A body, by yours truly [oil on carved wood]

Sesame Street's Music is GR-eat, and so is Ariel Pink

Grover was always my fav. Great song.

Christopher Cerf wrote this song. Upon reading his wiki page, I was totally blown away by:

"Objected to the use of his music to break captive's will

On 9 December 2008 the Associated Press reported that various musicians were coordinating their objections to the use of their music as a technique for softening up captives.[1] The Associated Press reported that Cerf '...was horrified to learn songs from the children's TV show were used in interrogations.'"

Also I am LOVing Ariel Pink's music: Today I changed into all my clothes and danced to this song on repeat. OH faggy, I know, but just take a listen:


Don't be rippin without permittin (mine)

box o dusty unicorns
there sitting under that table
shining dirty in a cardboard box
sits ceramic dusty unicorns
somebody gathered and stuck together
now for sale
a box of dusty unicorns
lookin for your love
sittin under the table
if they do so happen to catch an eye
hoping to catch your eye

..Jelly shoes.

A style of the 80s, and 90s, and now, but kind of elusive!

I will ALWAYS be a sucker for anything jewel tone, shiny, rainbow, transparent, sparkly.

Looking at those purple ones reminds me that my older sister had some, maybe when she was 6 or 7...

My mom says: "Don't get em! They'll ruin your feet."
But they're nice to look at.

I want my computer to apologize to me every time it gives me a captcha and I solve it.
I just feel insulted every time I'm asked to validate my identity as human.

I've also had one that read: MY F4G once. I saved it, but I can't find it.

I am impatient, I know...

Today, I found some old songs I used to Love. Among them, a 90s masterpiece:
Remember 'Teenage Dirtbag'?

Last time I heard this song was when I was walking over to a friend's house, and I heard it wafting through the air. A bunch of guys were drinking beers around a minivan. And I yearned to run over there and sing it with them. Instead I just quietly remembered how it felt to be back in the 90s.

Wish Jason Biggs had a crush on ME!

I'm finally going to take this blog seriously

Flattery has driven me a little. Anonymous people and people I know tell me that I have to blog what I like cause apparently I entertain them thoroughly.

So here you have it. I have decided to make a little post every day then.

Last thing that entertained me thoroughly was:

Dang atta dang atta dang BONG BONG BONG

'Looky look what we got here"

"Just slam it into his face"

"dooong dooong don't you Ev-err DO THIS!"

...and so much more!

Musings of the day:

"I wonder if androgyny ever changes, as trends in favorable male/female traits change over time.

I can tell you I know that attractiveness changes... Celebs who were 'hot' in the 80s, some were totally heinous."

*IF* you want my body

"I don't know why so many pictures of Daniel Radcliffe show up on google images when you search 'sex symbol'. I guess he stood naked next to a white horse or something onstage to affirm his maturity?? Hm.. Horses are mighty trendy nowadays."

I just googled Ugly Sexy and this is what you get: ugly-sexy-bathtime.bmp ooo
