i could not see the horizon, the seas had swallowed up the skies, it seemed like that Waterworld was going to be a huge bust but maybe that little girl could perhaps make a comeback it didn’t hurt Kevin Costner, though, they still make movies with him why is that I wonder the postman was reviled by critics everywhere and I never saw most of it but I guess I trust critics to tell me what to do more than myself these days anyway I mean they get paid to tell what is good art and what is bad art but I think maybe that they are missing something too getting all that music for free and getting into movies for free not that I haven’t snuck in to many a movie or bootlegged a lot of releases in fact I bootlegged this release here from my college radio station but I’m doing so much important work for them that I just take the free music off the top you know most of its pretty bad anyway I can’t stand all this indie rock they play most of the time it’s just so boring but who knows maybe once indie musicians get past the internal baggage that they are all carrying about being indie and serious artists the music will get fun again and we won’t have to worry about selling out and posers and scenes and cliques and anything at all. Ha. maybe not then but we can dream can’t we I mean that’s what this music makes me want to do anyway dream so many dreams that I never want to wake up to some stupid day job that I have for the summer that is slowly sucking the life out of me ok maybe not but I still don’t like to work more than anyone else in the world and god knows that my emotions and feelings are more important than anyone else I mean why would I run a website that publishes music reviews if I didn’t think that I was the king of the whole world but I shouldn’t put all this sarcasm in here at all because that’s not what the music is and that’s what I meant to write to convey and wanted to show people that it’s like flowing and beautiful maybe which aren’t my thought processes at all but music has the possibility of changing things and I think that maybe when I listen to this that I can change the fact that I can’t talk to people that I don’t know and that I spend more time on the internet than I should and that maybe internet people aren’t as real as I want them to be and when/if I met them in person not that I would they wouldn’t be what I wanted god I’m doing it again there is no purity available that can express this except the purity of unadulterated unconscious unedited thought which may not be beautiful but it is pure and that’s all I want to say, basically but made up elaborate unorthodox ways of saying it so I hope people get it from that and disregard it all else and but so here we are again writing the same words to the same songs but this time it’s so much different that people will understand and want to participate in this movement but you know that no one likes to be forced into things and that everyone wants to be different and that everyone makes fun of everyone else for trying to be different when everyone is trying to be different it makes them all the same or something insightful like that but the point is is only that maybe my failures in life and the things that I haven’t said are like contained in melodies and harmonies but even so probably not at all but we can dream now can’t we I’d like to think that maybe when this is all over that we could get a cup of coffee even though I’ll be drinking perhaps coke because I don’t like coffee all that much but that seems to be what people like and maybe we could go to starbucks and sit outside if you’re not an anarchist type that hates corporations you know I just think that maybe like it would be easier or whatever or perhaps I could just get you something to drink from the fridge and we could stay here in the comfort of our own rooms and think about things we could possibly do but don’t dare to do because we’re so tired from living and it’s not like that at all in real life but they keep showing it on TV so I figure that there’s got to be some truth to it perhaps maybe but I’m not sure at all god that violin is piercing and now it’s gone into the night and perhaps only four songs is not enough to be a full release full of warmth hope sadness and depression but perhaps it’s the perfect length because you know expounding on stuff just ruins it because length is just arbitrary when the songs are this good you know what I’m saying at all can you hear what I’m saying through this sheen of glass I doubt it but at least I can say I tried
