life view.

nate: sometimes i wish i could be this complete selfish asshole that didn't give a shit about anything and just work at some mindless job that paid me a fuckload of money.  it'd make life a lot easier.

brenda: you don't want life to be easy.

Good Friday.

for good friday, i mashed up two songs from jars of clay and sufjan stevens, "liquid" and "to be alone with you"

i liked mashing up the songs because after listening to "liquid", what IS the one thing that i know?  i decided to answer that question using "to be alone with you" to describe it more fully.

yes i know the quartet part in the beginning looks a bit too fake...i don't really know what happened with the lighting inconsistencies...i'm kind of newb with that stuff.

here are the lyrics that i used:

arms nailed down
are you telling me something
eyes turned out
are you looking for someone

this is the one thing
the one thing that i know

you gave your body to the lonely
they took your clothes
you gave up a wife and a family
you gave your ghost

blood stained brow
were you broken for nothing
arms nailed down
he didn't die for nothing

to be alone with me
you went up on a tree
i never knew the man who loved me

hope you guys like it.

oldies but goodies

been thinking a lot through the book of romans recently, and just was listening through jars of clay's original album (90's and past theme of the month, etc.)

the lyrics in their debut album are just crazy awesome.

"sinking" has been describing a lot of my struggles recently.

an excerpt:

deny myself
deny my heart
deny Your hand
deny Your help
but You offer me
but why should i buy that?

see that i can play a pretty convincing role
so i don't need You
i don't think i need You

but You see through my forever lies, that You are not believing.
and i see in Your forever eyes, that You are forever healing.

reminiscing the 90's

when everything feels like the movies
yeah you'd bleed just to know you're alive.

i am.

typical.  look at how cliche i am:

i look shorter because of the bean's curvature distortion.

it looks like a frozen bit of mercury.

things about chicago that were meh:

- food (had everything i think that was chicago-an, and was thoroughly unimpressed)
- public transportation

things about chicago that was somewhat legit:

- architecture (if i had more time that'd be what i'd walk around looking at)
- weather (for summers, i can imagine it being a tolerable city to be in during that time)

this script is wrong right?

this can't have been where the map said to be.


back it up...two years, i think i was supposed to take a left when i took a right.

yeah.  it was definitely a left.

backtracking that far is gonna suck.

call me emo.

but listening to this amidst a crazy moment tonight made me tear up again:

stumble til you crawl.

so tell me what do I need
when words lose their meaning?

i was spinning free, whoa.
with a little sweet and simple numbing me.

the sweetness will not be concerned with me.
