- The Dreamers.
Long Beach is filled with dreamers. Not dreamers like you or I, but dreamers who digress towards an inappropriate dose of things that cannot be measured. Or so we should be so arrogant to believe. I dream for success, for a certain level of fame so I can ignore it all with humility, for some [...]
- Life, As It Were.
A swirling mass of denim and associated items, digital cameras, way too many energy drinks, Rock Band injuries; that is my life as of late. It isn’t always the adventure it sounds like; which is more than it should be. For every moment when I realise I need time away from something, there is a [...]
Over the weekend I added some various, random, writings that span all the way back to 2002. For those of you not in the know, 2002 was when blogging was invented*, and I was right there changing the world. If you peruse these archives, you will find; early morning drives, Cheetah conservation, vague reminiscing, 11 [...]
- Certain Things.
There are certain things for me that will always; render a photographic image in my mind, create a yearning for particular things, begin a private screening of out takes of life events in moving picture form, trigger an onslaught of emotions past. For me these things are typical; for me these things are atypical. Songs, [...]
- Not To Break Tradition.
…but “today, a tradition.” Summing it all up with one thing, it was a year of things. Not so much things to eliminate (though there are plenty), but things to remember, things to cherish, things to pretend only existed in alternate dimensions. My life consisted of flights across the Pacific with the most modern of [...]
- Insert This Before It Should Be Inserted.
Driving the five, and I’m learning how to smile. I’m not sure when it was I forgot how, but it is evident, it has been a while. I’m proudly displaying far too much of an affliction for a band that is far too popular for this kind of event. It says so much, it always [...]
I have often been told i am before my time. I suppose everyone is really, but then at some point they must get past their time. I would have fought well in the crusades, I would gladly have slaughtered hundreds of innocent men (so long as I could do so with a sword and with [...]
- Forward, Falling Forward.
In what was to become a pivotal moment in my life, soundtracked via Heatmiser ever so suspiciously by a man-who-would-be-genius-if-his-life-weren’t-cut-short, I tripped on my own tears knowing there are some things I am missing more than anything in this world, and some I can’t wait to get away from. And it did, because of me. [...]
- The Daylight Revolution
“It is official, I am giving up on daylight savings time. I will start a club, there will be membership cards of course; we will flash them incessantly to anyone who proclaims we are late.” And so started the major revolution of Drake’s life; finally his cross had arrived via mail order, and it was [...]
- Ten Thousand Year Old Increments.
I don’t like this air, but do we really know any better. I traveled today across hours in minutes. I froze time once, months ago, and now I have reached its rival, speeding time up. We always hoped it possible, but it only comes as a distraction, I aged 5 more years today, which means [...]
- I Woke Up This Morning.
Which is a fine start. It is very clear to me that Long Beach is the new Seattle, which was the new London. And this makes alot more sense being the new London. I am here, and she may very well be in London again. She’s always leaving this place I tried to meet her [...]
- Complicated Simple
So sitting here deciding which hardcover edition of books I already have read to purchase makes up my time. And I contemplate my decision making ability, as of late it has failed me. Am I so wrong in so many circumstances? Have I created this alternate mindset, that the rest of the world hasn’t followed [...]
- The Spring Predictives.
I’m pretty sure I will marry someone famous, or someone famous’ ex- wife, or someone famous’ illegitimate daughter, or just a model who is not really famous but gets us into all the Vogue parties. Or someone who is absolutely so amazing that she is famous to me and that’s all that matters.
- Neon Signs And 5 Lane Exits.
So after a week-ending, because it included part of the week, of roadtrips and concerts it puts quite a nice spin on the world. You never really know how resourceful you can be until it hits you in a parking lot, and yes jumper cables are so much more valuable to me. We all seem [...]
- You Gotta Have Your Moments.
I don’t know what I want but I should find it, at least before it’s found in the darkness. And it’s not so much that I’m afraid of the darkness, but the simple truth known only to myself at this moment. You cannot see very well in the darkness, and if my judgment is to [...]
- A Night On The Mesa.
I was at this party Friday night, no Saturday, because Friday was dinner and sit in the kids section at Borders reading magazines night. All my friends were drinking, and they were drinking Ice House which must be the worst beer ever made, and I was so over it. I wanted to push people in [...]
- Who Would Honestly Build A City In A Desert?
It’s all so surreal though, the situation, how we met. Every conversation we have there in my memory as if I only dreamed it. Maybe I am just piecing together all the great moments before the fall from all my past situations. It’s just a compilation, a really good compilation. So she calls, and she [...]
- The Once Traveled, Shall Return.
You wake up, shower. Black shirt or Blue? Black. Coffee or Tea? Black… Coffee. The day begins; you walk out your door. Meanwhile in the rest of the world they do the same. You get in your car, slide the next hit into the stereo. You drive away, never noticing she has the same routine. [...]
