12:53 am - are you brave or are you scared straight?
Top 5 of the Moment

1. My new "cheap beer" of choice is Miller High Life. You can't go wrong with the "champagne of beers."
2. The Long Winters. Enough f-n said.
3. Writing really interesting songs on the piano when you have no business playing the piano.
4. Recording aforementioned piano songs.
5. Writing really f-n sad lyrics for aforementioned piano songs.

Stay tuned...

07:55 pm - you look good, but you sound better...
I was waiting for you
I was standing around
I was getting older
I was going down

If you always get up late
You'll never be on time
If you always make it
After work
Ba ba da-da-da
After work
Oh, the day never comes
And I stand up, waiting on

I saw you down there, I know you were tired
I saw you, you looked like a swimmer

Alright
I wanna be with you all the time
Why can't you satisfy?
You look good
But you sound better
You were the best I had

If you always get up late
You're never gonna be on time
If you always get up late
You're never gonna be on time
And that's a shame
‘Cause I like you
I never see you

08:20 pm - become one anything one time...
Bored walking on the boardwalk, New Jersey Shore.
If I come to New York, can I sleep on your floor?
I've been living out of a suitcase on the motel floor
and running up tabs at the corner store.
I'm barely walking on the boardwalk anymore.
When summer gets along,
your hair gets too long.
I'm picking up the habit of drinking long before four,
when July is gone, I'll be twenty-four
and then not anymore.
New Jersey shore, New Jersey shore,
then not anymore.

11:18 pm - I'm gonna make a record so I never forget...
We agree on so many little things
Dr. Dre, Project Runway
but there's one thing, I can't bear to eat
you think I'm crazy, and that's ok

you say, "I like chowder"
and I say, "lobster bisque is better"
you say, "I like chowder"
and I say, "lobster bisque is better"

Christian Bale and Benjamin Gibbard
a tall Blue Moon, all guaranteed winners
we like seafood, even mashed potatoes
but there's one thing I can't stomach to this day

you say, "I like chowder"
and I say, "lobster bisque is better"
you say, "I like chowder"
and I say, "lobster bisque is better"

ayshay, oh oh, oh oh
ayshay, oh oh, oh oh
ayshay, oh oh, oh oh
ayshay, oh oh, oh oh





This is how I spent my afternoon.

11:06 pm - so unsure that you would...
Top 5 of the Moment

1. My new Mbox 2 Pro... aka the ability to record something in high quality and THEN make it sound like shit...
2. Josh Rouse
3. Guitar lessons with Charles from the Wrens over X-mas/ New Years (?!?!?!)
4. Paying off loans at an absurd rate
5. Wishing I was somewhere else... with someone else... doing something else...

02:04 am - it's all gonna break
Nobody’s hoping for better days
No one knows what to do.
You’re okay in your secret place,
With no one bothering you
It might save time if I meet you there, but I don’t care
I’d rather wait for you
When no one’s home and the weather’s fine,
I’d rather wait for you
When no one’s home and the weather’s fine,
I’d rather wait for you...

11:13 pm - do you ever think about it?
So my Macbook hard drive officially died on Monday. It was pretty weird to be without a computer for a few days... but also kind of liberating in a way. Fortunately I backed up almost everything 4 days earlier and I have Apple Care... so nothing was really lost.

In the meantime, I was able to write an entire song from start to finish in one night. It was a riff i've been kicking around in my head for a while, but I was finally able to sit down and arrange it and put some lyrics to it. Lyrically, it may be the best song i've ever written. I'll spare you the lyrics or topic... It will most likely be recorded within the next week or two though.

In other music news, my "band" will be submitting a song for the Sufjan Stevens X-Mas Song Exchange Contest that "we" wrote and recorded last week. Stay tuned for that.

Otherwise, things have been about as OK as they can be in Detroit, MI.

Lately i've started to really take a hard look at my life choices and i've come to realize as somewhat happy I am with my job, this town/path isn't really where I want to be. For several reasons, i'd like to be in NYC right now and taking advantage of that life style while I'm young.

Believe it or not, chemical engineering positions aren't that easy to come by up there... but you know me... if there's a will, there's a way.

Speaking of cliches... I love this song.

11:05 pm - Back East tomorrow!
I'd swim across lake Michigan
I'd sell my shoes
I'd give my body to be back again
In the rest of the room

To be alone with you...



I think this pretty much sums up how i'm feeling right now.

09:07 pm - I know, I know, I know it's true...
Well I haven't updated this in quite a while. Things are going pretty well in Detroit. Sounds like I may be out here for a bit longer than I had originally expected. That's ok though, it isn't too bad. I do miss a fair amount of people back east, but it's a pretty short trip back. I'll also be around all next week for Thanksgiving and for two weeks at Christmas/ New Years.

Did I mention I ended up closing down the bar with members of Broken Social Scene on Friday night? Probably one of the top 10 best nights of my life. :-D
