Why Bother

God this weekend has sucked. I've been bored, I've been angry, crazy, depressed, frustrated. I can't play guitar because it's strings broke and I can't get another set right now since I've reached a new level of broke. Mostly I've sat around and done nothing and feeling sorry for myself. thanks for listening to me complain.

maybe we could even get together

maybe you could break my heart next summer



The other day someone called my friend a pseudo-intellectual and it got me thinking. Really, what is the difference between an intellectual and someone pretending to be one? Nothing. An intellectual is someone who thinks a lot and comes out with well thought out opinions. A pseudo-intellectual is someone who thinks a lot and comes out with well thought out opinions that you think are bull shit. I don't think that you should degrade someone you don't agree with so much as to call them a phony. And that maybe instead of calling them intellectuals and pseudo-intellectuals, we should call them intellectuals and intellectuals who can go shove it.

(the song scoff is no where on the internet so I put negative creep on the playlist instead)

in my eyes, I'm not lazy
and my face, its not over
in your room, I'm not older
in your eyes, I'm not worth it

I need the new stylus for my turntable to arrive today. I have faced the last week virtually without music. My turntable has been acting up for quite a wile, enough to damage a record irreparably. So I broke the needle and because I have an obscure, old, crappy player I had to order away for the new needles. Meanwhile my dog chewed through my head phones and, even after borowing another pair, I left my cd player at a friends house. I'm going out of my mind. I never realized how much I needed music to stay sane before

Some will die in hot pursuit and fiery auto crashes
Some will die in hot pursuit wile sifting through my ashes
