October 25th, 2007

For someone who's apparently busy, I'm way too bored for my own good.... @ 08:30 pm

temper: recumbent recumbent
soundtrack: The times they are a-changing - Bob Dylan

 Hmmm.... to update, or not to update?

Okay, quick update: I'm good, New York is still awesome (although at times freakishly irritating, as with this morning when three subway stations (mine and the ones on either side on the line were closed so the police could investigate some sort of accident),  grad school is starting to own my soul...

...yeah, that's pretty much it. Other stuff's been happening, but it's most out of date by now... so whatever. You don't get to hear about it. At least not tonight.

Time for another round of the lyrics game!

Okay, same deal as always - put the music collection on random, take the first 20 songs and post the first two lines or so of lyrics for people to guess the title and artist....

1. What a life it would be, if you would come to mine for tea…
2. Here's a true story Said someone to me yesterday Said he'd heard it in a taxi ..

3. She came from a happy home, a very happy home a very happy home…
4.  Come up to meet you, tell you I’m sorry, you don’t know how lovely you are
5. Baby love, my baby love, I need you ooh how I need you

6. You were on my mind inside the cinema, you looked so beautiful I almost had to go
7. He's into that, that spiritual stuff, My brother's into, my brother's into, He's into that, that spiritual stuff
8. There ain't no space and time, to keep our love alive
9. I’ll sweep out your chimney yes, and I will bring you flowers yes, and I will do for you most anything you want me to
10. This thing, called love, I just can’t handle it
11. I have seen peace. I have seen pain, Resting on the shoulders of your name. ...
12. Sometimes I can be up like that, when I don’t cross myself with you, Sometimes I can be down like that, when I don’t cross myself with you
13. They call me the rhymenocerous, not because I’m fat not because I’ve got birds on my back…
14. Papa died smiling, wide as the ring of a bell, gone all star white
15. Lost souls, you and I, my dear. Whiskey bottle and a forty-five, my dear.

16. In a basement flat lying cover, in a head full of heights were a couple of lovers
17. Ohh, can’t anybody see, we’ve got a war to fight, never found our way
18. Well the truth it fell so heavy, like a hammer through the room, that I could choose another over her
19. I went to the movie the other night, the plot was groovy, it was outta sight
20.  When we grew up and went to school, there were certain  
     teachers who would hurt the children any way they could

I know what you mean. I'm incredibly busy but I really can't be bothered anymore. Must be something about this time of year...

Seriously. I'm only halfway through my semester though, sadly, so hopefully I'll find some inspiration somewhere...

...or not. Working sucks.

Man, I was seriously sitting there while you were doing it going 'man, I should have kept a note of these... what the hell's #6? I hope that's one of the ones that Katey knows!'

Brainshare... in the different sense of farming out parts of your memory on other people. Very handy!
