ain't no hollaback girl

10:51 p.m. x 2005-01-07

i met hoards of cool kids at kara's party! a duality of lias, a chelsea and a kayla, and another cute one...i forget her name but she was very cool. the illustrious abe was there! as well as regulars of kasa de kara such as josh, clare, that kid named paul, andy, tweak, ryan and myself. and also the most beautiful kara you've ever seen (and some very sexy pictures from the hair show!).

i gave her the shins "oh inverted world", and she also recieved the luscious pecks of JUANES' new album, yellowcard, and a candle that must be cucumbermelon crack because i was sniffing it all night, and i hate cucumbermelon.

i was being very neurotic, but it is important for me for kara to know that i had an outstanding time being with her and fondling the sport utility vehicle card in "apples to apples".

but think of it like this, and sleep knowing i love you.

i think i'll go home and mull this over
before i cram it down my throat
at long last it's crashed, the colossal mass
has broken up into bits in my moat
lift the mattress off the floor
walk the cramps off, go meander in the cold
hail to your dark skin
hiding the fact you're dead again
underneath the power lines seeking shade
far above our heads are the icy heights that contain all reason
it's a luscious mix of words and tricks
that let us bet when you know we should fold
on rocks i dreamt of where we'd stepped
and the whole mess of roads we're now on
hold your glass up, hold it in
never betray the way you've always known it is
one day i'll be wondering how
i got so old just wondering how
i never got cold wearing nothing in the snow
this is way beyond
my remote concern
of being condescending
all these squawking birds won't quit...building nothing, laying bricks...

- the shins, "caring is creepy"

RYAN PLAYED "HOLLABACK GIRL"! if you haven't let the vast amazingness of "hollaback girl" utterly consume your life, you're missing out (as if there's any left of my life to really devour...i bought the TWIN PEAKS SOUNDTRACK today, never played used for seven dollars after this thing -> and i bought kara this shins and clare...a secret). it's awesome how in the liner notes they have diane stuck at the end of the cast, reverberating the presence of the holy dictaphone. and on the front where it says "soundtrack from", the m is obscured so to say "soundtrack fro".

we're out of ink. we just got the computer fixed and now we're out of ink (which i'm telling you is entirely unrelated to the mysterious appearance of thusfar half of the secret diary of laura palmer...ugh, what suffers in the throes of addiction).

i enjoy listening to angelo badalamenti in the car, and apparently i have made a sizable fan of his out of my mother. if it's a david lynch soundtrack she's like "OOO!" which is great, even "lost highway", but then how do you expect a gym teacher to turn down rammstein...

if anybody should ask i'm going to a seminar
pieces of the moon
sensitive heart, you're doomed from the start
(& etc)

anybody can be just like me, obviously.
not too many can be like you, fortunately.
