You can never go home again, Oatman... but I guess you can shop there.

Ei-yi-yiiiiiiii. These 12 hour+ days are rocking the shit out of me. Anyway, in efforts to save my brain from turning into total mush I tried to capture the subtle magic of summer earlier by photogizing a lightening bug. I do what I can? From what you can make out the little bugger is buzzing to your right. Though, blurry this suits my mental state. So. Tired.

This is perfect for a hot, lazy day in July and YEAH so what?! So what if this song played in Dirty Dancing. Yeah, 'The Swayze' pranced around on a log, in the woods in total man tights in effort to teach Baby the right moves. The song beats the shit out of that movie. It's fantastic, don't let that swaaaaaayze you. WOW. Wow, I just made you all not listen to this and quite possibly another single word from my mouth.

Hey Baby -Bruce Channel

Truce, still friends?!

This hits stores Sept. 4th. I haven't decided whether or not to pre-order this from Amazon for $32.49 (eligable for free shipping!) and possible recieve it late, or take my chances with Best Buy on the day of and possibly pay more.

What should I do?!

Kinda crept up on you, didn't it? No, you drove us here.

Today's weather has our pavement begging us for some doughnuts.
This made me laugh.

You better give it some, and play this while you do it
Tones on Tail -GO!

As someone who couldn't be more obsessed with the idea that we do not live forever and that time is a precious stone. This couldn't be more outstanding to read. Nicely, done Tan.

When I find a place where I belong -The Slackers

I'm convinced that this song is a remake, but I have yet to find proof. I have to say that The Slackers are hit or miss with me but this song is entirely too sweet not to be slightly moved. Plus, I have no idea why but this song has been following me all week.

You're smart. I like you. I'll probably give you a nickname

Why do we need another shopping center on Baltimore Pike? It's already over-crowded with a crapola of redundancy that further deteriorate land with stores, that only encourage all us not to go to Delaware to shop. Do we really need another Target, Acme, & Home Depot? When you can find all three of these within a 5 mile radius? Much land is being wasted at it's cost which of course infuriates the living shit out of me. Plus, if you're going to build such a mondo shopping center instead of sitting it across from Briton Lake, we all know that the Granite Run Mall could use a little revamping!?! To put it nicely that place is an unrestricted dump of generic stores that we've never heard of. This topic was long overdue, but as I drove past this site the other day I wanted to scream at its nod of future decadence. Not to mention Baltimore Pike is extending a lane to make room for this awful pit of commerce!?!? Awful.

Anyway, I've been meaning to post sooner but I've been tired, and busy. I've been writing in a spiral bound note book frequently during lunch hour mainly for the sake of sanity and also in the hopes to generate some new ideas for this blog. Unfortunately, my intentions fell short and none of which written on paper has made it onto this site. The reason? My guess is laziness? Or Maybe I have a hard time reiterating "the over-zealous bees cut through the air like machetes" -this urges some reconsideration. Okay, okay that was just a kewl line needless to say momentary writing is always questionable at a later date for me. Though, that's not to say its not valuable. Some of the best writing comes from unexpected moments. Speaking, of moments I've been reading Redemption Song every second I get. Its whooping 640 pages will be savored, and I almost want to take my time finishing it because it's that outstanding. Though, I've been reading it at a snails pace due to unrelenting workload. I've passed the first quarter of the book following his childhood and into early adult-hood. So far the book has chronicled Joe Strummer's earnest attempts at becoming a musician long before he hit a magnitude of success with The Clash. From what I've gathered Joe Strummer was quite the Casanova with the ladies (no surprise there), though he seemed to fall in love quickly he could truly be friends with women. Women seemed to trust his outgoing nature. Strummer had several close female friendships one of which included him marrying a friend solely so she could gain citizenship. This level of warmth blew mind and also saddened me to know that such a person no longer exists. Hands down, this book has been worth every penny. READ THIS, I don't care if I haven't finished it yet, that's just the nature of two jobs getting in the way. DO IT.

I must sleep.
