Today, I waited in line as a man counted dimes praying to buy his morning coffee. In downtown LA, the homeless sleep on curbs every day before the police come by and wake them. Across the skyline, near Hollywood & Vine, workers polish the golden curbs for tourists. Why don’t you stop at Venice Beach and go buy some weed; I’ve been told the doctor is in. As night comes, stars, not in the sky but at the bar, spend thousands on their preferred poison. No, I’m not lying. I swear I’m not lying. Just promise me you’re still listening.
Now would you believe the homeless on the streets go hungry when it’s 78 and sunny?
Would you believe to smoke some weed, you can feign a headache and get some from an M. D.?
Oh, but please believe me when I say God doesn’t love you if you’re gay. Sorry Prop 8, you’re just a regression from disposing immorality.
Good to know you’ve got your priorities straight. Good to know.
“The Room Got Heavy” by Yo La Tengo 
Random Music History Song of the Day
Eleven studio albums in, Yo La Tengo just kept rolling out great music. The band continued to find new ways to mix the stylistic influences they draw on. “The Room Got Heavy” made bongos, a Krautrock drone, 60s soul organ pumps and monotone vocals seem like they’ve always belonged together. That’s all you really need to know. Oh, except that the album title rocks: I Am Not Afraid of You and I Will Beat Your Ass.
So remember when I said I didn’t want to blog anymore? Well, I’ve decided against that decision. I don’t know how much I’ll be able to write while I’m at school, but usually I’ll stay up every once in awhile til the wee hours of the morning writing some entry that is more for me than it is for anyone else to read. Nevertheless, I’ll continue to write every so often- especially in the summer.
I’ve realized I hate tumblr shortly after I created one. I don’t want to blog anymore nor do I enjoy this twitter-esque use of tumblr by its users. The only reason I haven’t deleted my account is the fact that there are one or two blogs I enjoy following. Just don’t expect me to write anything anymore. Bye.
Actually, forget this post. I’ve decided I’m going to use this less as a blog. I’ll post pictures, videos, thoughts, and blog when I feel up to it. I guess I’ve decided to reformat lulz.
