Today, a young man on acid realized that all matter is merely energy reduced to a slow vibration. That we are all once consciousness experiencing itself subjectively. There's no such thing as death, life is only a dream, and we are the imagination of ourselves. Here's Tom with the weather.

Products of the Week

The Fender Stratocaster. Probably my favorite guitar. I myself only own a Squier, but it's a Fender nonetheless. Plays great. I've been considering scalloping it, but I don't want to destroy it on accident.

This! is fantastic. Sounds fantastic. Looks fantastic. Costs...a lot of money. I would jump at the chance to use one of these for just one day. Some pretty big bands use these suckers.

Donate. I'm needy.

Please donate. Any bit helps. I'm gonna be going to college soon and I'm gonna need help paying for everything.

It's ok
Everything will be fine
I just can't believe this is real

He's too young!
This wasn't supposed to happen!
Give me answers!

If only I could turn back time...
I would give anything to get answers...
If I could just say one more thing to him...

He'll never see his future
He left so much behind
I will always miss him

He is in peace now
He will never suffer again
We'll see him on the other side

Dedicated to Lee Stassen.

As I lie with my headphones blaring
I focus on nothing
Nothing but the words
The drums
The guitar
The beautiful harmonies
I am a part of it
I am a part of everything I hear
I step out of my body
I reach my arms out
I try to grab whatever might be there
My eyes are closed
I touch something
I'm touching the music
Music itself in my hands
It's heavy but weightless
Blinding me in darkness
The beat of the song matches the beat of my heart
I love it
I bathe in it
I live it
It is mine
And only mine
It belongs to me
It's too abstract for others
One thing I can do
I'll break a piece off
It will grow forever
If you understand me,
It's yours.

When I was little

When I was little, I mixed up nickels and dimes.

When I was little, I stuck a fork in a light socket.

When I was little, I was afraid of balloons.

When I was little, I mixed up my shoulders and elbows.

When I was little, I thought my dad could lift a car above his head.

When I was little, I wanted to be a cowboy.

When I was little, I loved country music.

When I was little, I was afraid of heights.

When I was little, my PlayStation was my most prized possession.

When I was little, all my friends thought I would be a scientist.

When I was little, my favorite color was turquoise.

When I was little, I thought a guy couldn't marry a girl older than himself.

When I was little, I was jealous of the kids who could name all 150 Pokemon. I still am.

When I was little, I thought I didn't have an imagination.

Your turn.

A job. A wedding. An umbrella. Irks.

I went to the grocery store in town today and let the manager know I was still interested in getting a job there. I really need to get a job. I'm sick of not having enough money for anything. I want to buy a car. I want date money. Gas money for said car. Plus, I have like 10 friends who work there so that's pretty cool. I don't want to work with people who suck. I'm goin' to a wedding today. I barely know the people, but my girlfriend works with the girl so I guess I'm goin'. That means I gotta get all dressed up. I wonder if fedoras are acceptable at weddings. I've got some pretty classy ones. Nothin' better than a fedora, white buttondown shirt, striped tie, and black pants. Except maybe all that with a snappy umbrella. Now that's classy. Well, I'm off to get all dressed up. I leave you with a list of several things that irk me.

Wet socks
Dull pencils
People confusing "you're" and "your"
Fridges completely full of things I don't like
Bad English accents
People who think "gay" is a synonym for stupid
The letter Q
lol abusers. It's not even funny!
String theory

I woke up this morning, and surprisingly felt nothing like P. Diddy. Great way to start off the day. An even greater way, Toaster Strudel. Back to P. Diddy. I wonder who he feels like in the morning. It'd be copyright infringement for him to feel like himself in the morning. Quite the predicament for Mr. Diddy. Anywho, today is likely to be uneventful, unless, of course, I have the privilege to see Sami. Hope so. Got my laundry done, so I won't have to go out wearing dirty smelly clothes. I hate when I have to do that. I just now found that missing card I was looking for. I watched the movie Mary and Max the other day. Wasn't expecting much. It was actually pretty good. It's claymation, so you can see why not much was expected. It had some pretty funny parts. I'd recommend it. Question: How long is too long for a blog post?

I spose I should go take some shower or something.

Wednesday, August 18, 2010

Well, here goes.

Never done this before. Never even thought about it before today. But, I figured, why not? Sure hope this works out. Not sure if it's even possible for it to not work out. It's not like it's gonna be removed from the internets. I don't think they do that. Well, I honestly don't know what I'm supposed to do here, so I'll end this first super post with a haiku.

Lay like you're standing
In ridiculous places
The Lying Down Game
