Melodies And Desires

Everytime I listen to this song it breaks my fucking heart. Sometimes, like tonight, it makes me cry. Cry in the way Vespertine does. I cannot define love in words, only play representations in sound.

Four Things I Want On Record

1) Lady Gaga is bullshit.

2) Kanye West is insane. And, his music is not good enough to warrant childish, egotistical rants.

3) I find Victoria’s Secret models boring. Meaning, physically they’re like pretty wallpaper.

4) Chelsea Clinton is hot, and I’d so do her.

Her Mom is still beautiful, so I’m not surprised she grew up to be beautiful too.

That is all.

Guns N Roses – Chinese Democracy

I took Chinese Democracy out of the library, listened to two songs, and realized nothing is truly free.

The spread of Walmart.

Someone used some crazy internet site technology stuff to show how Walmart spread across the US since it’s beginning. Its crazy neat and depressing.

BTW, I hate Walmart. It’s evil. I refuse to shop there. I’ve bought three things in Walmart in the past like 10 years: Motor oil in Texas driving here. Radiator stopleak stuff here in Phoenix, because my mechanic said to get it there. And, pepto bismal at 1 AM, because it’s the only place open 24 hours. When I walk in I feel like it’s evil. It’s always disorganized, gross, and I never find what I want anyway. There is a Walmart within 25 miles of every person in the country. That’s sick. Long Island was actually the last major area to have a Walmart, reflected here on this website. Zooming in, you can see the first one pop up in Coram in 1995. Living in Coram, I naturally remember it opening too.

I highly recommend this movie: Walmart: The High Cost Of Low Price

I like Kathy Griffin.

I really do. I think she’s funny. Anyway, I put on CNN to watch the ball drop because of her and Anderson Cooper, who I’m also a fan of. They also promised performances by My Morning Jacket and Lady Gaga (who suddenly I should care about?). Anyway, this is why I like Kathy Griffin:
