being lazy all the time makes me feel good
makes me feel fine, makes me feel good
two AM thinking of where i'm gonna go
what i'm gonna do nothing in my head
maybe i'm hungry
me and jeff we sleep all day
chris and farleigh live downstairs
i like tv it's real good
hot tamales are good food
afternoon get out of bed
trying to find things in my head
but i already know
i can't think before two
caz and dave smoke too many cigarettes
dan stoppelman he's ok

dream

very odd. the first bit i remember is me, dave, and julie all going to apply at abacus (re-apply for me and dave). we're sitting in a big room with this lady attempting to convince a buncha people to work there. i guess it's one of those mass application days. one of her main selling points is that she's got a big bottle of pickles and we each get one. tho i never did for some reason - i wanted one. anyway, the 3 of us are being very insane, we keep talking and wrestling each other and ignoring all the abacus people. it was a lot of fun. at some point julie disapeared, and me adn dave go downstairs into a big lobby - it looks like for a hotel, maybe. there's a video game set up off to the side, one of us is playing it i forget who. i had some vital news for dave and run over to tell him. i dont rmemeber what it was, but i told him. part 2 of the dream, i'm in a parking lot, i've got my dad's truck cuz my car is broken (my car is fine and my dad doesnt own a truck). i was giving someone a ride home. i forget who it was, but he was kinda scary. not threatening, he was a friend, just a scary person [i know a few people liek that]. there was a lot of people in hte lot and we were all mingling. the guy i was bringing home wandered off but his stuff was still in the truck. i walked to a dining room - i dont know how i got there, i was walking to it and was suddenly there - and there was this long table, it was some sort of dinner/meeting. i knew everyone there. i was seated between the kid i was bringin home and steph. they start handing out jumbo shrimp (HUGE shrimp) as snacks/gifts. for soem reason i was going to turn them down cuz shrimp arent kosher, but decided to take one for 'later'. i joked to steph that later would probably end up being about 10 minutes. the shrimp was actually lobster shaped, but small (for a lobster, it was big for a shrimp) and it was definiltey shrimp-meat-looking, all slimy. it had eyes and everything. anyway, i set that down and it was time for hte main course, which presumably we'd had all along but didnt seem to appear til just then - lobster claw. a single lobster claw. it seemed kinda odd for a claw, as it was too wide and ddint look to have been detached from the rest of the lobster. it was kinda big too, about hte size of the ubershrimp. i tell steph that lobster claws look so weird - like big mutant slug things. i was kinda overstating the case: it didnt look so sluggy, but it definitley looked like something wonky. she laughed nervously and i kinda puppet it at her and move hte claw 'thumb' like it's talking. then i put it back down, and at that point the alarm went off. so who knows.

ya know, in every other way, i'm healed from my sickness. but my throat continues to worsen. i've been coughing a lot and it is very phlegmy (sp?) today. gross.

the end of this song is fun- it all gets drowned in massive fuzzy distortion, some guy yells "yippie!" and it beeps and ends. O GOD THEY WERE SO GOOD LAST NIGHT!! holy crap. nothing like i was expecting. i saw them about a year ago and they were a standard punk band. their half of "shot by lammi" suggests the same, but last nite they were crazy. it was like shai halud with actual singing. insane rhythm changes and weird atonal riffs and long (for punk songs. it wasnt tool length or anything) instrumental parts of them all doing like private solos that somehow came together. the singing kinda reminded me of that jack drag song, 'feel so tired'. it was awesome.
o, and kith rereleased "thick as thieves" on their new label, with 2 new songs. what the hell? theyre good songs, but i'm not gonna buy the cd twice for them. hmm, i just read an interview w/ the singer - apparently the 1st version taht i got was self-released. i spose it makes sense to re-release it, but i dunno why they wanted to redesign the whole thing. and they put breakdown in front of witness for the 1st track! breakdown does have a better intro, but it's not that great of a song, and witness is one of my favorites. mumble. anyway, this doesnt actually matter, i'm just babbling.
i did pick up the new drexel cd, whenever whatever, as i was so impressed by them. it's good, but nothing like what they did live. it's not like their old stuff either tho. it's cool.

Timing is so crucial when you're trying to be sociable
Every single one of you's the same (You're all the same)
Lying cheating stealing anyone who is approachable
Falls to be the victim of your game (stupid game game)
Lifeless laughter is your mating call
Patrick Swayze up against the wall
I don't think you've got any sense at all
But it's all right with me

I wish I was more like my friend's sister's older brother
But I'm not so fuck it, it all seems the same (it's all the same)
So wipe away those feelings that you thought you might have had
Cause I refuse to hear your voice complain
Elevated pageantry circle left to right
Civilized behavior is too much to ask tonight
Chivalry and courtesy to you their meaning's trite
But it's all right with me

Constantly complaining never-changing verbal acrobats
Never thought I'd meet the likes of you (the likes of you)
You're mildly entertaining but soon I've had enough of that
I've got lots of better things to do (things to do)
Lifeless laughter is your mating call
Patrick Swayze up against the wall
I don't think you've got any sense at all
But it's all right with me

I won't be like these people that are pissed about their days
No I won't forget that I'm myself or fall into their ways
You rap in your existence while fight up to the fore
Leading souls away until they scream for more
Smile away and pass me by I hope that I believe
To live to impress to invest to by me
Chivalry and courtesy I still never see
And it's not all right with me no

Well everyone's found someone how come nobody's found me
Well I don't care but
Everyone's found someone and no one's found me
Well everyone's found someone how come nobody's found me
Well I don't care but
Everyone's found someone and no one's found me
Well everyone's found someone how come nobody's found me
Well I don't care but
Everyone's found someone and no one's found me
Well everyone's found someone how come nobody's found me
Well I don't care but
Everyone's found someone and no one's found me


I'm an ordinary guy (just an ordinary)
I'm an ordinary guy
That's what you said
I'm an ordinary guy yeah we're all the same
