09:54 pm - life
Life is good
Sometimes it’s bad
It has its ups
It has its downs
Just sing a song and feel all right
Cause that’s just life
And if you’re lost
Don’t be sad
There are good times to be had
Just sing a song and let love shine
Cause that’s just life
That's just life
That's just life
So darling don't cry

And when your hour
It is near
And your friends
They all are here
To share their love and to be kind
It’s just life

Oh and when you’re gone
You won‘t be back
I’ll remember those
Special times we had
I’ll sing this song and feel alright
Cause that’s just life
That's just life
That's just life
So darling don't cry

For some reason, all I can do right now is chuckle.

11:41 am - all I want for Christmas is you...
So Jimmy and I recorded a song for the Sufjan Stevens X-Mas project. Although we didn't win, I figured I'd share the song. It's not really the direction I'm looking to take my music, but I still somewhat enjoy it.

Be forewarned, it kind of has a depressing tone... but what else did you expect? haha

Christmas Getaway

Another year gone by in front of your face
will she come back home today
but will she, will she stay
presents on the ground
decide your fate

On Christmas, Christmas Day
The bills they can't hide from you anyway
On Christmas, Christmas Day
The snow on your front yard
hides your pain

Holiday shows, snowflakes, goodbye waves
empty avenues, false claims
the girls they, the girls they came
on the trains to make a getaway

On Christmas, Christmas Day
The bills they can't hide from you anyway
On Christmas, Christmas Day
The snow on your front yard
hides your pain

It's your white skin on the white snow (let it snow)

In other news, I watched a pretty interesting Q&A with Donald Trump on CNBC this morning. As much of a jackass that guy can come off as, he is pretty damn brilliant.

Soooo can't wait for NYC/DC!

05:12 pm - maybe, you're gonna be the one who saves me...
Have I ever expressed my love for the Magic Bullet info-mercial? I think I've seen it at least 20 times now... so lame, haha.

It's gotta be the combination of cheesy/hilarious over-acting and delicious food made in seconds.

11:36 am - 2007- Best Song of the Year
I don't mind
what you left behind
aren't you tired?
but then again I'm wired
the speed

if all goes wrong
if all goes wrong
if all goes wrong
with me
would you believe?

I don't mind
who you've left this time
if what transpires
between crash and choirs
is me

if all goes wrong
if all goes wrong
if all goes wrong
with me
will you believe?

save yourself
if what you saw is someone else
for keeps

save this love
if we can say what's kept
nothing's free

if all goes wrong
if all goes wrong
if all goes wrong
with me

if all goes wrong
if all goes wrong
if all goes wrong
with me

will you believe?


This song was performed by BC solo during the second Asheville, NC Pumpkins show I saw this summer. Even though Zeitgeist was terrible, this song proves to me that BC still has it in him. More chills upon the first listen of a song than almost any song I've ever heard.







This is kind of a shitty version. I have a better version on MP3 if anyone wants it.

11:26 pm - change
There are times
when you think you've got my funny number figured out
there'll be days when I don't feel like I ever knew you all that well
and there are lines, drawn behind, around, above and over everything
in an effort to figure out the place and time, the wrong, the right, the yours, the mine
and I'll be damned if I feel like I will ever know anything
but if we don't keep moving on that last hill,
we'll never know what's on the other side



Wow, I love this album more and more and more and more with every listen.

Jersey tomorrow. Woo.

11:02 pm - feel good lost
I wish I was blank
I wish I was blank
I wish I could thank
I wish I was blank

I'd write a letter to you
And there'd be nothing to it
I wouldn't hem and haw
On just how to start it

I wish I was blank
I wish I was blank
I wish I could thank
I wish I was blank

I wish I'd stand up straight
I wish I'd said things different
I wish I'd said nothing
Things would be so perfect
I wish myself to keep
I pray my soul to sleep
I wish myself away
I wish I was blank




Goodnight

03:16 pm - snow daze...
Ugh, so why am I in Detroit again? As of right now we have over a foot of snow out there, yuck. Luckily I'm somewhat smart and decided to go outside and clean off my cars rather than doing it at 6 AM tomorrow.

Last night, driving back in this crap, I was nearly involved in an accident on the highway. Some idiot tried to quickly switch lanes two cars in front of me and did a 360 in the middle of the interstate. Then the car behind him tried to stop and also did a 360, slamming into him. Luckily I calmly pumped the breaks and skidded off onto the shoulder. Narrowly missing the guy behind me who was also heading to the shoulder. Hopefully the weather is OK when my roomate and I drive back to Jersey for X-mas/New Years break on Friday...

Speaking of which, I should probably write out my itinerary so I remember it...

December 21st- Drive back to Philly, possible dinner with Jared and Steph, possible dinner with Jen, possible dinner with Anita, possible dinner with Heather and Colin...

December 22nd- Home, extra lazy/unpack, record songs with Jimmy, possibly shop, watch some dvds, possibly Game On in AC to see Jamie and the like

December 23rd- Home, most likely laziness and record songs with Jimmy, possibly see Brian, possibly go to AC with Angie

December 24th- Home, lazy, cookies, Christmas story

December 25th- Home, extra lazy with lots of shrimp cocktail on the side

December 26th- Home, lazy, possible lunch with Kevin in Delaware

December 27th- Drive to NYC, possible guitar lesson with Charles Mexico, hopefully dinner/drinks with KGrand, guitar with Geoff, drinking with Geoff and his lady friend, ideally karaoke with all of the above referenced people...

December 28th- Drive to DC with Geoff to see Mark, have some beers and "musically masturbate" to recordings of our old band while Alisha makes fun of us...

December 29th- Do something fun in DC, hopefully hit up a karaoke bar, hopefully Sandy will come into the city to see me as well... it's been forever ever

December 30th- Drive back to NYC with Geoff, hopefully dinner and/or drinks with Ali, possibly see Dan and/or Kayla, work on some music with Geoff

December 31st- Hang out in NYC, work on music with Geoff, try not to be awkward at KGrand's party, Geoff's coworkers party, drink, enjoy, pass out

January 1st- Drive back to NJ

January 2nd---> January 5th- Home, lazy, no plans though

January 6th- Drive back to Motown...ugh


All of this weather permitting of course.


Wow, this has been long.

I'm totally digging Crystal Blue Persuasion right now. I think my dad put it on my computer when he was setting up his new Ipod.

07:40 am - you think you know, but you have no idea...
Wow.

It's 7:42AM and I'm just getting to bed.

This is a first.

Can't say I regret a second of it either.

In addition, let's all thank the AT&T Gods for weekend minutes.
