I bought "Back To Black" today, spurred by the Grammy win of Ms. W. And I like soulful female vocalists, so I figured: why not?

Turns out I don't care for any of the album beyond "Rehab". And listening to the other tracks makes me think that she doesn't really have that much talent - she's all hype and gossip. In fact, I'm half sure that her music and her entire persona is totally manufactured. Her sound is too demographically targeted... it hits R&B and baby boomer sensibilities, yet her antics also make her extra appealing to retro loving snort-coke-in-the-bathroom hipsters.

I'll take Fiona Apple over her any day of the week.

she smells of the sun
and she's constantly saying
that's it's all right,
because lies sound so nice
and like soil to seed goes
to casting my fears aside...

she says
the satellite is coming
I pray
the wrecking ball is waning
she says
the satellite is coming
it's come to take us home

satellite...

still smells of the sun
and the light that brings healing
is burning my eyes and the dark
seems so nice
and I'm choking on blessings that I can receive
I hide

she says
the satellite is coming
I pray
the wrecking ball is waning
she says
the satellite is coming
it's come to take us home

satellite...

she says
the satellite is coming
I pray
the wrecking ball is waning
she says
the satellite is coming
it's come to take us home

I want to make out with Brody Armstrong.

I want Shirley Manson to read me a bedtime story.

I want Gwen Stefani to have my baby.

That was a pretty good concert. Garbage was the best of the three.

So, went to the Bijou on Friday night and saw Spirited Away, a great anime from the makers of Princess Mononoke and My Neighbor Totoro. It was bizarre. Highly surreal and much cool. I'm going to go see it a whole bunch more times, especially now that I have my Bijou membership card and can see it again and again...

Saturday was mostly a bumming around day. I caught up on some TiVo, and started packing up a couple of things (RPG books mostly). I'm going to go room by room around the house and clear things out a little at a time - hopefully if all goes well tomorrow I'll start moving stuff into the new apartment during the next week. In the evening I went over to joe and chia's place (their townhouse is incredible) and played board and card games with a bunch of friends. Great time had by all.

In about twelve hours I get to look at my prospective apartment and decide if I want to live there. A little after that, I get to see No Doubt and Garbage at the Centrum. Apparently an episode of Dawson's Creek is going to be filmed at the concert tomorrow. Maybe I'll catch a glimpse of Katie Holmes or something.

This looks familiar, vaguely familiar
Almost unreal, yet, it's too soon to feel
Yet, close to my soul, and yet, so far away.
I'm going to go back there someday.

Sun rises, night falls; sometimes the sky calls.
Is that a song there, and do I belong there?
I've never been there but I know the way.
I'm going to go back there someday.

Come and go with me; it's more fun to share.
We'll both be completely at home in mid-air.
We're flyin', not walkin', on featherless wings.
We can hold on to love like invisible strings.

There's not a word yet, for old friends who've just met;
Part heaven, part space, or have I found my place?
You can just visit, but I plan to stay.
I'm going to go back there someday.
I'm going to go back there someday.

Last night I had a dream about you. In this dream I'm dancing right beside you. And it looked like everyone was having fun. The kind of feeling, I waited so long.

Don't stop, come a little closer. As we jam, the rhythym gets stronger. There's nothing wrong with just a little little fun. We were dancing all night long.

The time is right to put my arms around you. You're feeling right, you wrap your arms around too. But suddenly, I feel the shining sun. Before I know it, this dream is all gone.

Oh, I don't know what to do. About this dream and you. I wish this dream comes true.

Oh, I don't know what to do. About this dream and you. We'll make this dream come true.

Why don't you play the game? Why don't you play the game?

There's no time for us
There's no place for us
What is this thing that builds our dreams, yet slips away from us

Who wants to live forever
Who wants to live forever
Oh ooo oh
There's no chance for us
It's all decided for us
This world has only one sweet moment set aside for us

Who wants to live forever
Who wants to live forever
Ooh
Who dares to love forever
Oh oo woh, when love must die

But touch my tears with your lips
Touch my world with your fingertips
And we can have forever
And we can love forever
Forever is our today

Who wants to live forever
Who wants to live forever
Forever is our today
Who waits forever anyway?

hold your breath
make a wish
count to three

come with me and you'll be
in a world of pure imagination
take a look and you'll see
into your imagination

we'll begin with a spin
travelling in the world of my creation
what we'll see will defy
explanation

if you want to view paradise
simply look around and view it
anything you want to, do it
want to change the world
there's nothing to it

there is no life I know
to compare with pure imagination.
living there you'll be free
if you truly wish to be

if you want to view paradise
simply look around and view it
anything you want to, do it
want to change the world
there's nothing to it

there is no life I know
to compare with pure imagination
living there you'll be free
if you truly wish to be

tall and tan and young and lovely,
the girl from Ipanema goes walking,
and when she passes each one she passes goes "a-a-ah!"

when she walks she's like a samba that,
swings so cool and sways so gentle,
that when she passes each one she passes goes "a-a-ah!"

oh, but he watches her so sadly,
how can he tell her he loves her?
yes, he would give his heart gladly

but each day when she walks to the sea,
she looks straight ahead not at he

tall and tan and young and lovely,
the girl from Ipanema goes walking,
And when she passes he smiles,
but she doesn't see,
she just doesn't see,
no she doesn't see...

Well, that went not at all as planned. Apologies to all involved for screwing up the drive-in plans; poor communication and unfortunate circumstances ruled the day. Damn cell phones for not getting calls, damn stupid drivers who rubberneck and bottle up traffic, and damn me for not being more clear with direction. As it turned out, Harrison fared no better and wasn't able to round up people for his crew either... so the whole thing fizzled out.

I salvaged my evening by going to the Price Chopper and picking up some dessert items for Ren and Justin's pot-luck-drink-the-rest-of-the-wine-dammit dinner. Got to hang with friends, drown my sorry lightweight ass in boozy goodness, and later hook up with the people I disappointed who would have attended the drive-in trip. I fully intend to reschedule a drive-in trip... and next time there will be much better preparation, having learned from the mistakes that were made.

Also - please recall that this coming Monday night is MASSIVE-SUSHI-NIGHT. I know a bunch of people would like to attend all you can eat at Zipango this coming week... look to Noah and send him your name; we'll need a head count so we can call ahead and let Wilson know we're going to inundate him.

And so, today, though overcast and cold, will be a brighter day. I'll be heading out to Jen and Aaron's for a barbecue shortly, and we're going to go see Shakespeare on the common tonight (Henry V). Should be much fun, I don't get to see Jen and Aaron nearly enough!

In other news - I have been cast in a musical! "Return to the Forbidden Planet", a retelling of "The Tempest" in the setting of a 50's sci fi movie. I am most excited about this. I haven't done theatre in some time, and I'm really psyched that I've made the decision to get involved with it again. I'm even a main character, and get to perform a song with Steve Dupree's little sister (yes, Stan-who-just-got-married-Stan). Tom Russell has been cast in one of the two male leads... it's going to be an amazing production with the talent pool we've got. Keep the weekend of October 3-5 open - I'm not sure where we'll be performing yet, but it's an MW Rep show so it'll be somewhere on the WPI campus!

Apparently a lot of people tried out, and I got picked over a bunch of other folks... I really want to do well now. And I know I can, so I really can't wait to show my stuff. :)

I want it in the butt now.

WHY CAN'T I GET THAT OUT OF MY HEAD?? AUUUUUGGGGHH!!!

Man I'm a loser... I haven't updated this thing in months.

I got a couple new CDs in the mail today from Yat-Kha. It's weird shit. A combo of folk/rock/cowboy songs and throat singing. Very Oriental, with influences from almost every Asian culture, sounds like a mix of all of them. It makes me want to ride on a horse and be Conan. Kill wizards and ravage wenches and move boulders and stuff.
