Last night a little angel
She came humping on the floor

it's getting to the point where i am no fun anymore shot a man in Reno just to watch him die i got satin shoes i got nasty blues and the crowd scatters for the turnstiles when gollum the evil one crept up and slipped away with her scar tissue that i wish you saw sarcastic mister know it all there comes a time everybody hurts mean mister mustard rocky raccoon fell into his room only to find gideon's bible everybody hurts sometime time goes by like hurricanes freight trains faster things have a cigar you're gonna go far go to a lake of fire and fry polly wants a cracker if you want to well you can bleed on me who killed the kennedys we hurt each other and we're doing it again we've got to carry each other got a cobra snake for a necktie i was laying in a burned out basement with the full moon in my eye i've waited here for you everlong people and things i still can recall blood in the streets is up to my ankles thinking about what a friend had said i was hoping it was a lie

To herself
There's no one else


Watching the clock

It's four o'clock

It's got to stop

Tell him
Take no more

She practices her speech
As he opens the door
She rolls over
Pretends to sleep as he looks her over

She lies and says she's in love with him
Can't find a better man

She dreams in color
She dreams in red

Can't find a better man

To herself

There's no one else
Who needs to know

She tells herself
Memories back when she was

Bold and strong

And waiting for the world to

Come along

Swears she knew it
Now she swears he's gone

She lies and says she's in love with him
Can't find a better man

She loved him
She dont want to leave this way

She feeds him
That's why shell be back again

Can't find a better man


Blue, blue windows behind the stars
Yellow moon on the rise
Big birds flyin' across the sky
Throwing shadows on our eyes

Just downloaded some Neil Young that my friend, Verlaine, recommended.

Is good.

Is veddy good.

Helpless is absolutely sick on the Massey Hall disc.


I am currently downloading all the Bridge School Benefit box set. Lotta good stuff there. Neil puts on a benefit concert every year in San Francisco for the Bridge School, an educational program that helps kids with severe speech and physical impairments.

And the shows are all-star, all-acoustic. Elvis Costello, Pearl Jam, Thom Yorke (doing "After the Gold Rush." Dude.), Ben Harper, CSN ((&Y, natch)), Jack Johnson, Metallica... acoustic, R.E.M., Chili Peppers, Willie Nelson, Tenacious D, Emmylou Harris, Tom Waits, The Smashing Pumpkins, um, Neil, James Taylor, Wilco, and Lou Reed, among others.

Is good.

Is veddy good.


More on music... VH1 Classic was running this Rock and Roll Hall of Fame series of tv shows that was of classic albums. Each show was an hour dedicated to the recording of a classic album, and they showed how it was recorded, interview the band about it, and they will sit there with an acoustic and talk about hhow they wrote a specific part. They also interview the producers, who have the album loaded into the console, so they will isolate the lead guitar tracks, the drum tracks, etc.

It's cool.

One in particular involved Stevie Wonder getting the entire studio band that recorded Songs in the Key of Life back together (((they hadn't seen each other in 30 years))) and re-doing a bunch of the songs.

Watching Stevie Wonder talk about how he wrote the songs was incredible.

Especially when he got behind a drum kit and laid down the funk. Stevie Wonder can play drums like a mother.

I don't think I have ever seen a blind person play drums before.

And I'm telling you, Stevie Wonder can play the freaking drums.

It's really good. Watch it if you can. They also had a sweet Faces concert, a Queen album, which was way cooler than I thought it would be, and Fleetwood Mac Rumors, which was an absolute soap opera, except with Stevie Nicks.


There is a big storm happening right now.

I am going snowboarding tomorrow with Bells.

Because I can't go out like a punk.
