Hey Livejournal what's up long thyme no sea. I'm in the library. I'm KILLING TIME. I have french in 25 minutes. I spent last week in New York, also Philadelphia. It was TITE. Labs with abs are TITE, too. Today is my first real day of classes. I almost killed Marie yesterday. My phone is definitely out of commission. I had to wake up super early today! Earlier than most days even. I don't got a lot a say.

Universe City [19 Oct 2007|01:53pm]
What?!? College?!???? It's nice out today! I have a discussion section for History in a little over an hour. I have to read seven little articles before then. That'll go fast. THEN I AM GOING TO SIT IN THE SUN AND READ VIRGINIA WOOLF YEAH ALRIGHT! I'm going up to the "Yay" (Or, "yey," depending on whether or not one prefers cocaine to hyphy) in like two weeks. I was gonna go up on a Wednesday night, but now I'm gonna go up early-ish on Thursday because I have to do my radio show that morning. I totally have one of those, by the way. I play twee music on it. My college experience is way hipper than your college experience. Also I met a dude from Benicia and he knows some people (person) I know cause it is a small town. Alright homework time, yeah.

I have been having a sweet string of days here. Lots of burritos and lots of other.. stuff. I'm pretty excited for school to start cause it'll be something new. I tried to nap today but everyone else made it pretty tough. I got like 20 minutes though. I learned today that if my car could drive STRAIGHT UP I could get to outer space faster than I could get to Half Moon Bay. WHAT! NO WAY! I know, but it's true. If you haven't yet, I strongly suggest you listen to the new M.I.A. album, with emphasis on the song "Paper Planes." Or you could listen to it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fCFN1XwDOqE. It's not really a video. It's just sound, mostly.

Alright I gotta get to Nissa in the morning cause she left her car here and I don't have her key and BLAH BLAH BLAH.

(CW)TB out.

You guys know who's awesome? My Bloody Valentine. And you know what else? They get even better with every increasing decibel. Alright.

7/4 (synth line) [21 Aug 2007|11:42am]
I was in rural new york all summer. I taught wealthy jewish kids from manhattan how to make friendship bracelets and paint kangaroos eating burgers. I also stayed with chris hunt in philly (twice!) which was a sweet coincidence. twice. I went to boston and nyc and ithaca and middletown, which was worthless. I saw I'm From Barcelona play with Blonde Redhead for free in Brooklyn, and they had a slip-n-slide. I met tonnes of british people, and an australian. also some hungarians and several dozen americans. then all my toiletries got confiscated at the airport cause I forgot to take them out of my carry-on bag. what a shit summer.

tentative decisions [04 May 2007|08:08am]
I have decided that, by the time I'm 22, I will release an album called "Big Circles." It will have twelve songs, the first song being written in the key of C, with each track ascending the circle of fifths until the last song, in G. More byzantine, however, will be that every track will be titled so that the first letter of each song title will correspond to the key each song is written in (I suppose flats and sharps can be omitted for practicality's sake). Wouldn't you?

no people like show people [21 Apr 2007|09:08pm]
I'm super excited for the next couple of weeks and the wondrous shows that they will bring. among them!
Kimya Dawson, The Books, Tapes 'n Tapes, Explosions in the Sky, Skeletons and the Kings of All Cities!
and perhaps the blood brothers, although, eh. I don't know. I got into some colleges. I need to make up my mind.

I went to popscene the other night and it was super lame. I got indian food tonight and it was super delicious.

(CW)TB out.

"well make it if we run"?? [23 Mar 2007|06:03pm]
You know, it's been said that an infinite number of monkeys, sitting at an infinite number of typewriters, while listening to an infinite number of bruce springsteen records would eventually reproduce the entire works of the arcade fire's "neon bible."

Thomas Pynchon is taking a lot out of me. [11 Mar 2007|05:15pm]
I didn't realize "300" was based on a frank miller book. now I kind of want to see it. maybe I'll go to the [theater] in san mateo so I don't have to pay. I saw alex fonti last night at his apartment. he's gonna open a salon in a few years. I'd rock that. Tony thinks he should call it "Fabulous." I want some pringles. Or a grilled cheese sandwich. I probably won't get either; not anytime soon, anyway. My computer a'sploded and I just got a "new" one (I got it from the side of the road - classy) and finally installed windows XP on it. Now I'm downloading itunes so I can get my music back on track.



P.S. Gravity's Rainbow is tricky!

you see your shoes are tied [18 Feb 2007|02:58pm]
christ, these days. I'm not doing anything today. I hope I get a job soon. I need some money. babysitting's alright, but it would be better if I could do babysitting and have a real job. I went to a bonfire last night in the city and today my clothes smelled like smoke and it reminded me of last summer, and last summer was nice. maybe this summer will be too. I like the weather these days; it's gonna be really nice in san diego. I'm thinking of driving to the city later and dicking around, but I don't think it's really worth it. I'll probably just stay home and read and stuff. I took pickles to the beach earlier.

menos el ocho [30 Nov 2006|11:43am]
hey I am going home soon. I should pack/I should finish my school work. I did my uc application today, which was good, I got my Why? ticket last night, which was good, I am going to see minus the bear on the sixth. whoo party! two days after that I get on a plane at 3 and come home at 5. two hour flight, thanks time zones. I want a burrito so bad.
I went to northern ireland, and they have a "Peace Wall" separating the protestant neighborhoods from the catholic ones, and our cab driver gave us a pen to write on the wall and I wrote "well east coast girls are hip I really dig the styles the wear." I think that's pretty self-explanatory.
eight days left until burritos and driving. oh and people? people.

It made my head ache, it was that great. [20 Nov 2006|01:27pm]
I woke up with this song in my head this morning.

and it was Talking Heads. I had a dream that I was in my car with my mom and we were listening to the Talking Heads' "77" and my mom skipped "tentative decisions" and "never had one ever" (by the smiths, but for some reason it was on there.) and then I said "stop skipping all the good songs; you just want to hear 'psycho killer!'" and she was all "no, I love the Talking Heads." and I was all "no."

hah. [10 Nov 2006|06:37pm]
today I was at Rough Trade Records in Neal's Yard, and I overheard the following:

Guy #1: "I wanted to see if they have any Slint."

Guy #2: "Oh, I have Spiderland on vinyl, it's pretty sweet..."

I didn't bother telling him it was either cliche or funny, because I hope that in his heart of hearts he knows. I'm going to see WHY? when I get back to the states, the day after I get back, actually. I'm excited. hm... Livejournal is a cold dead place. I went to the park today and fed squirrels with sean and kate and shannon. they are so cute when they eat! the squirrels, I mean. Hilary's coming over and we're going to do college applications yayyy.

We march to a faster pace/ look out here comes the master race.

Is this... it. [05 Nov 2006|01:14pm]
Winter is slowly approaching! UC Application Deadline is slowly approaching! Coming home is slowly approaching! Me writing a paper (or two) is rapidly approaching! Getting a job at a bookstore and only wearing "The Books" t shirts to work is slowly approaching! If you look closely and critically, there is a world of difference in one's choice between the phrase "going home" and "coming home." Myself being aware of this world and its difference, you don't really know what to make of my choice, but were I unaware, you could read very deeply into it. Okay it's Kevin Spacey time.

what happened to the sands? [15 Oct 2006|05:23pm]
I went to brighton by bus yesterday. There was an ocean! and much less pedestrian - as well as vehicular - traffic. it was nice to not feel like every breath on public transport may be your last. or that it will facilitate your getting cancer. anyway, it was nice, though the beach didn't have the traditional "sand" that covers beaches, it had a series of big ol' rocks. there was a small patch of sand, though, and hilary and I wrote "CALIFORNIA" and wrote our names in the sand. kind of like... beulah? sweet sweet dreams and colored sounds, highways in the fog waiting to be found. you know. my family's coming here in less than a week. and uhh I'm going for indian food in like half an hour. party!

therapist/don't exist [29 Sep 2006|01:52pm]
my pants are covered in guacamole. not covered, but definitely spattered. I'm in england, hey.

I could make a career out of being blue
I could dress in black and read camus
smoke clove cigarettes and drink vermouth
like I was seventeen that would be a scream

speaking of hipsters, I met these guys from new york who work at american apparel. They live in the east village. remember what I said about hipsters? At least they do not work at a food co-op. ha ha? OH and did I mention clove cigarettes?

well. Let me just say this about that:

I am sick and tired of vomitting from smoking them, so we decided to go our separate ways.
it's over.
no chance at patching things up.

did I mention how the magnetic fields give me a frame of reference useful for appreciating the band Beirut?
cause I didn't get it before, but then stephen merrit explained it to me.
