Needs/Wants (Meme Friday)

Needs/Wants

I need money. I want a world without employment. I need a car that doesn't run on petrol. I want a motorised skateboard. I need my neck not to be broken. I need to read more. I want to finish The Master and Margarita today. I want to finish the six collections I'm reading. I want to finish Vellum. I need to stop get sidetracked in my reading. I want you to buy my book. I want you to buy both of them. I need to start researching the next. I don't need much, really. I want to meet nice girls. I want to meet damaged ones more. I need to not want that. I want an island. I want to own car parking spaces. I want a pet monkey. Do I need a pet monkey? I don't need a pet monkey. I want cures for diseases but I don't need them. I'm too healthy to need cures. I need a disease to need a cure. I want the media to be less controlled. I want some more Dirty Three. I need to see more of the world. I need the environment changes to be taken seriously. I need less hypocrisy in the world. I want less political correctness. I want more honesty. I want to speak different languages. I need to be smarter so that I can learn different languages quickly and easily. I just need to be smarter. I need to know more. I want to know more. I don't need much but I want a lot.

Needs / Wants.

I made a list this morning of the all the things I needed and all the things I wanted
You weren’t on either list


The Needs/Wants meme was taken from Lynda Hawryluk (lyndahawryluk), whose blog is really cool and you should be reading it. Why aren't you?

You might want to rephrase this as for a while I thought Lynda was gay!

(And perhaps she is and good for her!! But it's not entirely clear that yours is first and hers is second...)

(I'm watching emotional prisoners doing Shakespeare right now. It's really quite... emotional.)

I'm pretty sure that is the Seinfeld line ('not that there's anything wrong with that').

Speshal K seemed to get a little excited at the prospect of me being gay. Whatever floats your boat K :-)

I'm listening to Clap Your Hands Say Yeah - Upon This Tidal Wave of Young Blood. Does the singer sound like David Byrne (Talking Heads) or what?

there's a longer line from george though, isn't there?

i've never really listened to talking heads, so i can't say. i dig the album tho. shame they cancelled their gigs out here.

He does, now that you mention it. And one of these days I'm going to track down the lyrics so I can understand what he's saying when it all starts to blur together after the third repeat of the chorus...

I actually thought it might be David Byrne for a second or two. And yes; his singing starts out vaguely understandable and merges into unintelligible without even using the indicators. A little hard to follow...

Absolutely! Ben just had me thinking for a while that you wanted to meet damaged girls ;-)

(PS: Your original poem is the coolest)

No; not particularly. They seem to flock to me like seagulls on a chip though. I really must buy some repellent.

Thanks for the kudos K; for that you shall be rewarded with 'friendness'.

You want to be loved and hated in equal amounts.

(to quote Gonzales. Actually it's wrong though. You just want to be hated. But sorry, posts like the above are what we love you for!)

You just keep getting yourself into abusive relationships with your fans, editors, peers... "I don't know how you do it, I just seem to attract certain types."
And then when they come down on you, you're all, "Was it something I said?"

That's alright, fuck wit!

Sometimes you kill yourself? Gee; I bet everyone around you is getting rather tired of *that* attention-seeking behaviour...lol.

Are you getting any good at it?

Practice makes perfect.
"Oh, when will all the killing stop?"
