In statistics today we spent an hour of the 95 minutes talking about absolutely nothing
So I wrote a song about the bug on the radiator. It goes like this:
Look at that bug! It’s so dumb On its pavilion, the radiator It just wanders around drunk like it’s 5PM on a Wednesday in some, abandoned industry town Looking for God knows what Does it not know about the state of things in this state of things? We’re at war, and the statistics show we need to be more aware! Read a goddamn newspaper
Circles around for 10 minutes, ignoring the immensity of our current situation, it discovers the edifice of its desire. The Pine figure imposing upon the field of vision of this lady is erect, at complete attention…
The orange oddity turns to the statuette, looks cautiously and places its front two at the base of the structure and
…Stops. And stares. The lazy fuck. Get a move on already!
But then it dawnnnssssss on me. The creeping fog wisps into my ears, past the drummer, and into my brain bank….
There’s a bug! A bug! A bug on my mug! That freeloading oval is looking for a free ride!
Like hell! It’s my property! I earned it, and the authorities agree! Stupid bug. Doesn’t even know how the economy works.
The benevolent creator that I am, I trickle down my hand and
To anyone who may have missed my Tumblr presence recently, I apologize
I’ve been very busy lately, and haven’t had time to use this particular platform. However, if you would like to keep up with me, please follow me on Twitter @thespicypumpkin. I’m there much more frequently these days.
When I came to LA in 2008 I was borrowing a friend’s beat up car. It miraculously had a CD player so I went to Amoeba Records a bought three albums. This fantastic compilation was one of them. It will always remind me of that time. Love this track.
At No. 3 this week is Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Leonard Cohen with the debut of “Old Ideas” (41,000). It’s the icon’s highest charting album ever and best sales week since SoundScan began tracking sales in 1991. The beloved artist’s new album is his first studio effort since 2004’s “Dear Heather,” which debuted and peaked at No. 131 (9,000 in its first week).
Oh yeah, Lana Del Rey debuted at No. 2. But who cares? To put this in perspective: Cohen’s next-highest-charting album, “Songs From a Room,” came out 43 years ago. And it charted at No. 63. Props to L. Cohen for finally getting a big enough cult to actually move album units.
You know, you’d think I’d get sick of listening to this album by now. Or at the very least, I’d have uncovered all of it’s nooks and crannies. But no, it continues to surprise and reveal itself in new ways.
Listening to only one song is kind of like just reading one chapter of a book though. Or looking at the corner of a painting.
I experienced someone whispering to herself while they loudly pooped the other day. I’m not sure they realized I was in there with them. It was pretty weird, though. Like they had to talk themselves through it.
Sometimes you need to give yourself a little encouragement. Sounds like she was going through a traumatic experience.
Oh my god, but what if she DID know you were there? That would be so weird. Like she was actually quietly whispering TO YOU and was wondering why you didn’t respond. And then felt hurt that her stall buddy didn’t help.
Ugh, I’m getting the heeby jeebies by this hypothetical person.
