Oh baby,
I’m so tired
The man…from the government
The man…from the tax board
The man…from the public school
The man owns the golden rule,
yeah
I’m everybody’s slave, I made you my slave
You said this I do for you
If it would help to give the world back
What it gave, then I would
I would
I would
I would
I would for you
I would for you
You say my eyes are crazy eyes
Sometimes they are and so are you
And if you wonder what I would do
I would do anything if I could
You know I would
I would
I would
I would for you
I would for you
I would for you
I would for you

The Avett Brothers - Carolina Jubilee
Ain’t got no money
But I’ve got time
I don’t care about the sunshine
But I love to see you smile

So you say you’re lonesome
Baby dry your eyes
Well there’s a road to your door step
I’ll be there by morning’s light

But I don’t have an answer
For when you ask me why
I know I love you baby like I know I never ever
Gonna let you ever say goodbye
Say goodbye, Say goodbye

I’ve got an old Ford pickup truck
I got a Cadillac
And I don’t care how I get there
Transportation can’t hold me back

But I don’t have an answer
For when you ask me why
I know I love you baby like I know I never ever
Gonna let you ever say goodbye
Say goodbye, Say goodbye

Cause I’ve had bad lovers, yeah
That walked to my back door
I’ve wasted years walkin’ for them gals
That’s how I know you’re worth walking for

So you say you’re so in love
Well baby so am I
And I don’t care if I’m on the road
I am always by your side

But I don’t have an answer
When you ask me why
I know I love you baby like I know I never ever
Gonna let you ever say goodbye
Say goodbye, Say goodbye

Neutral Milk Hotel - On Avery Island
And the first one tore a picture
Of a dead and hanging man
Who was kissing foreign fishes
That flew right out from this hands
And when I put my arms around him
I felt the blushing blood run through my cheeks
And an eeriness surrounded when his tongue began to speak
And he said…Oh boy you are so pretty
Enough to wrap tight in rice-paper string…
And when I finally kissed him the whole world began to ring
Lost like a bell that’s tipping over
With two cracks along both sides
And I knew the world was over so I took a look outside
And watched the fires that were reaching
Up to the weather vane and the tops of trees
And the waiting scene and the sunday dream
They’re all waiting here for me

Deli markets with their flower stands
Pretty girls and the burning men
Hanging out on the hooks next to the window displays
And I took out my tongue twice removed from my face
Across a bridge and across the mountains
Threw a nickel in the fountain
To save my soul from all these troubled times
And all the drugs that I don’t have the guts to take
To soothe my mind so I’m always sober
Always aching, always heading towards
Mass suicide, occult figurines
And wasted gas-station attendants
Attending to their jobs
And a nice drive in the country
Finds a nice cliff to drop off
Oh when this life just gets so grating
All the grittiness of life
But don’t take those pills your boyfriend gave you
You’re too wonderful to die

And the last one tore a picture
From the pornographic page
But all the pleasure points attacking
All the looks of love were staged
And its a lie that you’ve been giving
It just hurts you everyday
So why should I lay here naked
When its just too far away
From anything we could call loving
Any love worth living for
So I’ll sleep out in the gutter
You can sleep here on the floor
And when I wake up in the morning
I won’t forget to lock the door
Because with a match that’s mean and some gasoline
You won’t see me anymore

I’ve posted this one before, however on Sound Opinions today they were talking about shoe gazer and specifically, My Bloody Valentine’s Loveless. Though it is not a very popular opinion, I have always been partial to Isn’t Anything. I’ve only met one person who agrees with me…I don’t know; maybe it’s just a case of the right time, the right place when I first heard it.
Well, here is a track from that album. It’s a dirty-beautiful song that (in my mind at least) was written for a dirty-beautiful girl.

My Bloody Valentine - Isn't Anything

Cupid come from coffee cup
Sickly heavy heart
Semi-set adrift in your
Lifted sugar eye
Come back down I’m waiting here
And lick me with your fire
Connected silver tounges
Our lips beside

Every time I look at you
Pins me to the ground
Mirror me your memories please
And let me help you down
Swallow me into your bed
With glimpses of your thighs
Forget your vanity
Come cupid come

Cake - Motorcade of Generosity
Well, your CD collection looks shiny and costly
How much did you pay for your bad Moto Guzzi?
And how much did you spend on your black leather Jacket?
Is it you or your parents in this income tax bracket?

Now tickets to concerts, and drinking at clubs
Sometimes for music that you haven’t even heard of

And how much did you pay for your rock and roll T-shrit,
That proves you were there, that you heard of them first?

Now, how do you afford your rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle?
How do you afford your rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle?
How do you afford your rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle?
Oh, tell me.
Oh yeah, alright.
Alright.
ah yeah
alright oh.

How much did you pay for the chunk of his guitar,
The one he ruthlessly smashed at the end of the show?

And how much will he pay for a brand new guitar,
One which he’ll ruthlessly smash at the end of another show?

And how long will the workers keep building him new ones?
As long as their soda cans are red, white, and blue ones.

And how long will the workers keep building him new ones?
As long as their soda cans are red, white, and blue ones.

Yeah, aw, yeah, aw, yeah, all-right!
Huh, oh haw how huh

Aging black leather
And hospital bills
And tattoo removal
And dozens of pills

Your liver pays dearly now
For youthfull magic moments
But rock on completely
With some brand new components

Now, how do you afford you rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle?
How do you afford your rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle?
How do you afford your rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle?
All-right, aw yeah.
So good.
Oh baby.

Your self destruction doesn’t hurt them
Your chaos won’t convert them
They’re so happy to rebuild it
You’ll never really kill it

Midnight
And I’m a-waitin’
On the twelve-0-five
Hopin’ it’ll take me
Just a little farther down the line

Moonlight
You’re just a heartache in disguise
Won’t you keep my heart from breakin’
If it’s only for a very short time

Playing with the queen of hearts
Knowin’ it ain’t really smart
The joker ain’t the only fool
Who’ll do anything for you
Laying out another lie
Thinkin’ ’bout a life of crime
‘Cos that’s what I’ll have to do
To keep me away from you

Honey, you know it makes you mad
Why is everybody tellin’ everybody
What you have done
Baby, I know it makes you sad
But when they’re handin’ out the heartaches
You know you got to have you some

Playing with the queen of hearts
Knowin’ it ain’t really smart
The joker ain’t the only fool
Who’ll do anything for you
Laying out another lie
Thinkin’ ’bout a life of crime
‘Cos that’s what I’ll have to do
To keep me away from you

Lovers, I know you’ve had a few
But hide your heart beneath the covers
And tell ’em they’re the only one
And others, they know just
What I’m going through
And it’s a-hard to be a lover
When you say you’re only in it for fun

Playing with the queen of hearts
Knowing it ain’t really smart
The joker ain’t the only fool
Who’ll do anything for you

Playing with the queen of hearts
And knowing it ain’t really smart
The joker ain’t the only fool
Who’ll do anything for you

And laying out another lie
Thinkin’ ’bout a life of crime
‘Cos that’s what I’ll have to do
To keep me away from you

All day in my mind
I replay the second time we chimed
So sweet what a treat sensual
Skin on skin is swingingly swell

Fat treasures
Don’t compare to our pleasures
Kissing and suckling the boots, come unbuckling
Enter sexual altered states
No sleep, um, we’re staying awake

The music connects us
The rubber protects us
And what the neighbors think, just doesn’t effect us
Check my spot and dig my swirl, I’m a liberated girl

I need your loving
I want your love
I’ll be your friend
I’ll be your lover
I’ll be your friend
I’ll be your lover

Against me your body’s pressed
I want to hug and kiss you and all the rest
Forget your troubles, ills and aches
And like an earthquake our body shakes

Just turn up the frogger bass and enter sexual altered state,
Just turn up the frogger bass and enter sexual altered state,
Take off your shirt, I’ll take off my bra
A rub a dub lovin’, until you say, ahhh
Keep holding on, until you say, ahhh
Keep holding on, until you say, ahhh
Keep holding on, until you say, ahhh

I need your loving
I want your love
I’ll be your friend
I’ll be your lover
I’ll be your friend
I’ll be your lover

You’re smiles as big as the Brooklyn Bridge
You rock me like no one ever did
Live and let living, tripping not slipping
Chewing on a chicklet
Make me want to knee dip, let me roll my full hips

Rolling Philly’s acting silly, the hippy spliffy
Made you lick your lippy
Our love a dub rubbin’ is king size trippy

All day in my mind
I replay the second time we chimed
So sweet what a treat sensual
Skin on skin is swingingly swell

Keep holding on, until you say, ahhh
Keep holding on, until you say, ahhh
Keep holding on, until you say, ahhh

I-I-I need your loving
I want your love
I’ll be your friend
I’ll be your lover
I’ll be your friend
I’ll be your lover

Extended Play E.P.
Sexy lover smokin’ with passion
step to the front if you wanna see the action
glance at the mic should I rock my style
it’s been a long time since I got buck wild
sometimes I feel lost in the sauce
when it comes down to who’s the boss
am I being too soft
feenin’ for your love and your special attention
trying to get you to look in my direction
eh you ’bout straight, put a cake in your oven
got to see me to get the good lovin’
wanna get the chance to sex and romance ya
on the dance floor, yeah you want more
I’m wit your girlfriends on the weekend
I give you all types of freakin’ now you tell me you’re leavin’
girl get a grip cause I’m hittin’ all angles
you know how the game goes
you gon’ feel shamefull

When you had it, you didn’t want it
now you ain’t got it, so you want it back
when you had it, you didn’t want it
now you ain’t got it, so you want it back
(you don’t want this)
when you had it, you didn’t want it
now you ain’t got it, so you want it back
(you want that)
when you had it, you didn’t want it
now you ain’t got it, so you want it back

Spotlight game tight
every night new sights
who would ever think life could be so nice
everything’s love til you find out the price
you’re saying you’re sick of the same routine
can’t serperate life from a floor style dream
you wanna take a look split from the scenes
when you thought you got a grip it’s true you lost steam
kick start strain but you can’t find step
in your place is a stud with a bit more pep
little less rep secret well kept
aid her when you need every night you slept
heard it all before can’t beleive it came true
hard to see what a good party’ll do
what ya gon’ do listen to your crew
shoulda took a better look at who’s sleeping with you

When you had it, you didn’t want it
now you ain’t got it, so you want it back
when you had it, you didn’t want it
now you ain’t got it, so you want it back
when you had it, you didn’t want it
now you ain’t got it, so you want it back
when you had it, you didn’t want it
now you ain’t got it, so you want it back

Everytime I turn around you’re lookin’ for somethin’ new
talkin’ ’bout who got to find something else to do
who you wit’ and what you want is just a fantasy
that’s why I keep tellin’ you your ass need to be with me

You know what I’m sayin’
that’s what you want…

When you had it, you didn’t want it
now you ain’t got it, so you want it back
when you had it, you didn’t want it

I am in, I am in, I am in!
A dream that started in 7th grade and was put on hold for far too long has finally started to become a reality.
From a double-wide in Mill Creek to a grad student at Duke University, it seems like I have lived several lifetimes during the intervening years.
Oh, and all you non-believers/haters/ex’s can suck it 🙂

Digging through the crates this week, came across this album. Yes, ‘Just Can’t Get Enough’ is the catchy dance song, but the record is full of 1985 goodness.

I’m not going down on my knees,
Begging you to adore me
Can’t you see it’s misery
And torture for me
When I’m misunderstood
Try as hard as you can, I’ve tried as hard as I could
To make you see
How important it is for me

Here is a plea
From my heart to you
Nobody knows me
As well as you do
You know how hard it is for me
To shake the disease
That takes hold of my tongue
In situations like these

Understand me

Some people have to be
Permanently together
Lovers devoted to
Each other forever
Now I’ve got things to do
And I’ve said before that I know you have too
When I’m not there
In spirit I’ll be there

Here is a plea
From my heart to you
Nobody knows me
As well as you do
You know how hard it is for me
To shake the disease
That takes hold of my tongue
In situations like these.

Understand me

Don’t Stop don’t stop, no
Just keep on going

Playing hard to get when we’re together
Hard to get there on your own
When will you ever come to conscience
I’ll let you be alone
You never had it better
Than when I was with you, baby
Come back to earth, let’s drink some tea and smoke some herb

Don’t Stop don’t stop, no

Don’t Stop don’t stop, no

50 cents of humor’s worth
When and how did I become my mother
Am I getting on your nerves?

Risque de s’ennuyer… t’endends les sirenes, les sirenes de la fete,
Tu sais ce que j’en pense….
Je veux me reveiller…

The best of both worlds

Ahhhh, serendipity.

I was talking to Martha on the phone. When I asked what she was doing she decided to admit the truth. “Watching Hannah Montana.”

I was off of work today. I had caught four or five episodes of the marathon.

A day off is great. Having friends that share your dorky, guilty pleasures; that’s priceless.

I finished my first dance mix for our varsity cheer leading team today. They will debut it at this Friday’s pep rally (it’s homecoming week). I would like to think that Dr. Banks would be proud. I was sitting in the lounge at lunchtime a month or so ago and the cheer leading coach was complaining about their music this year. I pipe up and let her know that I used to do mixes for drag queens. And the rest is of course history…

Along with going to the prom this ranks up there as one of the best good/bad/good things about being a high school mathematics teacher.

Different people point to different milestones as an indicator that adulthood has been reached. First sexual experience, first loan that you get without your parent’s cosigning, registering for selective service, etc… Today I achieved a personal one.
I finally donated to NPR for the first time. Slowly but surely, I am becoming an adult 🙂

I had a hard time deciding between the crank radio/flashlight and the This American Life CD…TAL won out in the end.

Cuttin’ Pumpkins 2007

Less than 36 hours until the great pumpkin carving fest. Can you feel the excitement? I only wish it was a little colder to match the activity. I had a whole warm mixed drink thing planned for the party, but it just doesn’t work with 80 degree weather.

Does anybody really know what time it is?

Numbers, numbers, numbers while they don’t invade, consume, and drive me mad ala “A Beautiful Mind” I always smile when I see little coincidences and other bits of symmetry pop up.

We all have probably seen the email about May 6th at three past 2 am, the time/date will be: 02:03:04 5/6/7. Last year in April there was a similar moment when it was 01:02:03 4/5/6, etc… More important than all that nonsense though is today’s date: 5/2/7, 5+2=7 it also happens to be my 34th birthday: 3+4=7. Conspiracy? No. Cool coincidence? Yes. If I was a conspiracy theorist I would also point out that my wonderful girlfriend, Laura, has got us tickets to see Blonde Redhead in Chapel Hill this Saturday. They are touring in support of their new album entitled “23”, Laura happens to be 23 years old. The concert is on May 5th, 5/5…5+5=10, which is also the number of tracks on their album. Coincidence? I think not! To quote (probably poorly) Paul Thomas Anderson at the beginning of Magnolia, “These things don’t just happen, do they?”

The long and short of it is that it is my Birthday today. Thanks goes out to the school system for sending me to a half day workshop today but paying the substitute for a full day. I am now sitting in a coffee shop listening to the new Blonde Redhead record on the headphones, typing on the school system’s laptop. I hate being here without my MacBook Pro, I love throwing contemptuous, holier than thou looks at PC users while exchanging knowing glances and nods with my fellow Mac people. But, all that aside, it is a nice, sun-shiny birthday day. I am at a non-corporate coffee shop where I can be a jack-ass and order a triple shot latte breve short and they know what I mean.

I now have plenty of time to walk, pick up a few books from Barnes and Nobles, send late birthday cards to my two fellow May 2nd birthday peeps Mistie and Glen, open my State Employee’s Credit Union account, make a dental appointment, etc… All the stuff that I keep putting off. A good Birthday all in all. Friday I will have dinner with friends, celebrate, and make a drunken ass of myself…if this old man can still manage to stay up late enough to do that. Birthdays are no longer the pseudo depressing business that my first couple 30’s ones were. Maybe that is because I am no longer a drifting, floundering college student. I am a man with a plan who has been able to check several things off of his to-do list this past year. Add that to the fact that whenever I do get depressed I can take solace in the fact that while I am 34, Dr. Banks is 35; now that’s old! 😉
