  • Music:

Nature of the Dump.

you know, i'll generally drop anything into this livejournal these days. i chucked up that flannery o'connor thing, after all. the why or reason to it or anymore, i say. feel free to write whatever you want as a reply.

i need some new music, is what i need. i'm scraping the bottom of the music bin at the moment, listening to ghost of the robot. (though the opening line to that valerie song, 'got an old smith's record and i put it on endlessly' is not bad.) anyhow, ghost of the robot isn't bad, but their lead singer is the fellow who plays spike on buffy. i saw the musical episode recently, which is about the only episode of buffy i've really liked, and i thought, hey, he isn't bad. but i mean, i'm finding my music through fucking tv shows now... come on. if only the radio hadn't turned into such a wasteland over the last year. i don't know who to go for in the i hope they die first contest: musicians, or radio personalities.

it used seem like interesting music would be released every week. it doesn't seem that way anymore, which has probably more to do with my tastes than anything else. it's the same with books. it seemed that an interesting book was released every week, but this no longer seems the case.

maybe it just seems that way at the beginning, when everything is fresh, and new. could be. don't suppose anyone has any new and fresh and neat things they'd like to share?

if all continues this way, i think i'll book a flight to sweden and have some assisted suicide. when they ask me why, i'll say, 'have you heard the kind of music they make these days?'

they'll look at me, not sure what to think.

then i'll say, 'and you remember the last really good book that was released?' and they'll mix up a whole serving of those tonics, to free us all.
