Wednesday day

I went over to my grandfather's old place this morning to help my mom move things. Apparently my great aunt or what your grandpa's sister is had been staying there for the last couple years after he passed away and had basically left it a ruin, cat claw marks everywhere, fridge is broken, blah blah blah. She was going to stay for four months. Anyway, we went through a lot of stuff, I took pics of all of it. My mom wanted to share the pics to see if anyone wanted any mementos or anything. Then we started bagging things up and boxing em. There's a ficus on the back porch I got my eye on. Found a couple fishing reels I took with me too, and some fridge magnets. Forgot the sailboat painting. I want that sailboat painting.

Then I got home, did a few emails and worky things, and did almost an hour on the old eliptical. I'm feeling pretty ok, not terrible. Three days in a row of about an hour of moderate exercise. Let's make it four tomorrow.

I learned how to play "Infinite Arms" by Band of Horses on guitar also.

Just the chords, not the dreamy parts.

I had a dream
I had a dream
That I was your neighbor
About to give birth
And then everything
Was really hurt
And I was so lonely
I didn't see It's like
Living in a movie
Twisting the plot
My friends and family
The little things I've got, I've got

When my thoughts drift to youI love the morning

I like to listen
To 4am birdies
Begging to feed
Now there's something here before me
A figure, I think
Isn't there a warning
Or something to drink
My god, my god

When my thoughts drift to you

These mended bones
The storms approach
Ever so slowly
Out on the sea
There's an animal below me
Lack of control
Others came before me
Others to come, to come

When my thoughts drift to you

F, Em7 repeats for the verses
then G, Am, Bm, C for the "when my thoughts drift to you part. There's two times they do the drift chorus twice, and between you go back to the F for a few strums before it's G time again. The last one you play slowing down. What do they call that in musicality-based societies?

here, take it.

The Jesus Lizard
"Then Comes Dudley" (youtube, fucking kickass)
Goat (google)

That woman's crazy, she's the mistress of a man who's crazy too
That woman's carryin'
Then comes Dudley
Dudley's gonna do us all a favor and tear 'em both a new asshole
Dudley feels the time has come to swell his balloon
Dudley feels the time has come to clean this womb (wound)
That's right Dudley, yeah
If it had a face I won't (wanna) eat it, he said
If it had a face I won't eat it, he said
Power of the pink he said (piggy's head)
Power of the pink he said
That woman's crazy, she's the mistress of a man who's crazy too
That woman's carryin'
If it had a face I won't eat it, he said
If it had a face I won't eat it, he said
Power of the pink he said
Power of the pink he said
Power of the pink he said
Power of the pink he said

One of the coolest bands ever. I took a piss next to Dave Yow at Brick by Brick and told him drunkenly "You're my hero" and he said "You shouldn't tell me that while I have my dick in my hand." Then I puked in a trashcan and punched a d00d in the grill and ran.

finally

nicely summed up "controversy" over "evolution" (i don't think anti-evolutionists even understand it):

There aren't two sides in this debate, unless you count presenting the facts as one side, and presenting a batshit insane lie as the other.

That's basically the rightwing's whole approach, to economics, to geopolitics, to science, to everything they do. "Well, now, you may have the facts and figures and pretty logic on your side, but I didn't come from no monkey!"

Wha? Of course not, asshole. Why would monkeys still be around? Anyways, read the link, it's good stuff.

wednesday lyric

charles sent me a lyric for a bad religion song, but i've hated bad religion my whole life, so no way. instead i'll put up a Pinback song, because i opposite-hate them.

Pinback
"Bloods on Fire"
Summer in Abbadon

Brain to head. What is that for?
Vein to vein. Torn and Sore
Carpet so thick and worn
Blanketed, dark, and warm

Break the bed, Burn the floor
Heat to Head. Twisted. Sore
Accident. Never warned
Can't explain. Nevermore

Calm yourself
Calm yourself
Bloods on fire
Bloods on fire
It's not in the spark that's not in your eye
Like we used to talk
It's not in the phrase that's not in the language
That we used to talk
Not in the face, you missed me
There
It's not in the science that we didn't learn
When we used to talk
Sit outside, penitence, just
Just let me know, Please say the words.

I'm alright, what was that sound?
Woke me up, now you're around
Pick me up, drag me around
Don't forget to breathe now

Calm yourself
Calm yourself
Bloods on fire
Bloods on fire

We all forgot
We're all lost in Autumn

It's not in the dead shocks that dropped underneath us
When we used the car
It's not in the strings we didn't pull
to move you around the floor
Where are you now?
Pacing a faceless maw somewhere vague
You're not outside. You're not inside. You're not anymore
Where did you go?
Here's to the pranks
we never pulled
And never will

Reading those lyrics doesn't come close to showing how powerful a song this is. I'd recommend taking a listen. Pinback is seriously one of the best bands of all time, and I'd recommend a careful listening to anyone who likes music.
