Miserablism

Now that I've finished with another long horrible job... I'm thinking of enrolling in a course in miracles. School always suited me better than the professional world anyway. Yeah, I made it out to Coachella, as a day player. I only caught a handful of acts, but I did get to see the last half of Bjork's set and it was well worth almost losing my job. I don't feel like resurrecting the details, cause they bore the shit out of me. But yeah, this job was hell on earth in huge helpings.

I did manage to post a new song over on myspace, so check it out. I was "in a mood" so reserve judgement.... Here are the lyrics:

Living on the edge never interested me. Being afraid of heights, it was the tooth decay that did me in. Or maybe the cavity inside my ribcage, blackened, charred by habits designed to impress and offend. Now I find myself in waiting rooms, next to last in line, not regretting the past… but in awe of a present I was unaware of. Obscured by the branches and blinking lights, wrapped up like my fear of sugar, in the punch lines of micromanagement and the chaos that rules control. I read the labels, note the patterns and surrender occasionally to the demons of emotion whose mutiny I must abide. I don’t see the edge as the end of the world, but as a starting point.

This is the edge, kids. More soon, I promise....
Love as always,
SO

Great song Saviour, love the sound.

And half a Bjork is better than none right? I may go see her in the fall here. She's headlining the Virgin Festival.

Glad the job's done.

Even a fraction of Bjork is better that none at all. I think you should definitely see her at the Virgin Festival, regrettably though.... I don't think they would let me in....

Thanks, Dale, for the kind words. I am angry and friends with bees.

Peace!

Hey, really.... It's not so bad, y'all... Like that time Britney shaved her head, I have just had an epiphany about how shitty it is to be married to Kevin Federline. That's all... No end of the world drama, just a good old fashioned tantrum.

I'm OK, you're OK and even the baby Feds are gonna be OK....
