[Current Location |hi from my bed]
[music |the rolling stones are my favorite band]

I could have kept walking for another hour or two tonight, especially because I kept seeing people I knew and one person I didn’t know told me I was beautiful. Someone else I didn’t know told me I was a cutie, and another person said hello. So I also had a smile on my face, and it’s nice to walk around with a smile on. It would have been a good night to keep going in circles or squares. Sometimes the air is pleasant here and some times of year are very special, one ought to remember.

On September 4th, even in Brooklyn (by way of New England) the smells of a new season breed, somehow smoky and telltale of what comes. And I’m something like happy on my walk home, with the naïve idea that when he leaves town it seems like the world is minus a butterfly, that one day from our cadavers violets will grow so that the perfume will delight the good men and good women who trot our path and help them to forget their sorrows. But on a night as this while you are en route home and alone, forgetting who your friends are and the capacity to call, you may placate yourself again and again with the words ‘I’m something like happy’ and hoping that someday lost capacities may one day restore themselves.

Steely Dan takes on Wes Anderson [Aug. 25th, 2006|09:56 am]
Dana Heather
Has anyone caught wind of this kerfluffle ?

http://www.steelydan.com/heyluke.html
http://www.steelydan.com/heywes.html

particular points of meaningless numbness and/or mere observation re: heywes.html:
1. Steely copyrighting SIMPLE USES OF THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE i.e Art Crime ? I picture Steely Dan as leather-blazer wearing narcoleptic invertebrates who take all their meals in some underground dungeon fortress recording studio from heavy women in nursing smocks, or as boozing on baby blood for the energy everyday to work towards another Grammy award winning album-- but despots of English ? Thanks for stealing Art Crime, as well as Faboriginal from the rest of us.
2. at the dotted line preceding "Strategy 1" either Walter or Donald switched chairs and the other took helm of the endeavor, CLEARY, as a completely different arsenal of vocabulary and perception of written chaste and form come into play.
3. KNOCK ON MARK MOTHERSBAUGH ? Just makes me a little sad, that's all.
4. Donald and Walter's spiritually omnipotent tone.
5. "So - let's get going, shall we? Send the check for US$400,000 (advance on licensing fees) out by Fedex to Mickey by tomorrow and we'll talk a little later in the day about merch, percentages, backend, soundtrack, ASCAP, etc. Mickey himself doesn't need any kind of an advance but he'll probably take a couple of points on your net career action." -- Right on, fight the machine, Steely ! But obviously more sensitive than my sister during allergy season, You, Me, and Dupree bombed at the BO so there's your instant karma.

One warm Sunday by the sea Casey rubbed sun block up and down my back and my red arms. I leaned back on my hands and felt my hair tickle my skin as I swung my head left. I called "I love you," as he turned and walked away, and thought 'this is love' when he didn't hear me and I didn't care, watching his golden shoulders sink into the ocean, his bright brown eyes wide awake underneath my closing eyelids as I fell asleep to the sound of the waves. These little things on little days, nearly always forgotten but never lost.

salute the summer

This month’s issue of Harper’s Bazaar is bound to what is possibly the most unattractive photograph to bedeck a magazine cover in the history of the western world. Rather than lustfully cupping her breasts, Britney Spears is merely cradling what look like deflated footballs. The lack of emphasis on her presumably pregnant stomach and goofy smile instead of provocative sneer reads “happy, naked and fat !” rather than sexy and preg (which might be impossible according to a pregnant friend-- unless it’s 1991 and you’re Demi Moore, which is also arguable and likely to be untrue). Thanks to Photoshop for softening the blow of what she probably really looks like naked right now. And, dying her black doesn’t make her different or reinvented, it just shows that she copied me from when I dyed my hair black in 10th grade and looked awesome. Also, I wish certain personalities would quietly fade into the background at some point, rather than sticking around galavanting about magazine covers naked, grown up and pregnant. Britney’s been in the public eye since I was in 7th grade (which really doesn’t seem like that long ago), and clearly not recording music at this point now only serves to make me feel old.

Riding the subway today immersed in a magazine I looked up seconds before approaching my 14th St stop and saw Long Lost Favorite Gay Friend From High School! In shock and wondering if the hat I was wearing still looked okay like all hats do when you leave the house but after hours of wearing inevitably start looking stupid, and not sure if I should sacrifice a timely exit for an enthusiastic 4year overdue hello, I froze and watched in awe, in this 4seconds of eternal anxiety. But LLFGFFHS got off at the same 14th St stop! A shoulder was tapped, screams were heard, and then the squeezing and the screamysqueezing, and after 30 loaded minutes of catch-up and relating in the park, waterfalling compliments and elevations— (apologizing in advance but after diluted contemplation, it’s really come down do this) but I got absolutely no interrupted “I-I’m sorry but I just can’t get over how GREAT you look!” Is that vain? Was it the stupid fucking hat? I was HUGE in high school by pre-eating disorder standards, and after 4 years do I not look GREAT godammit! Can a member of the young gay community please tell me that I look great and that the hat is okay?

Also, Casey's been gone for seven days now and I can't remember what he smells like, I feel like I wouldn't be able to remember his scent to save my life ! I have this static odorless image of a boyfriend in my head that grows less and less vivid with each growing day and slowly in my mind he's losing his hair and his ears are losing their shape, and with 21 days left of tour my imagined-Casey is sure to implode into thin air

“You cannot brush my rock and roll hair!!!” I screamed into the void, but no one heard me because no one listened and instead told me that I’d be “fine” that I’d be “going places” that I had “all the time in the world” and my hair began to detangle. It’s Tolstoy’s conviction that the aim of art is to state the question clearly—not to provide answers. Assuming life is art, let’s allow Tolstoy to endow my youthful western spirit for a moment: 1. What the fuck (re: graduation) ? 2. What the fuck (re: post-graduation) ? 3. What the fuck (re: no snuggiez for a month Boyfriend on tour) ?

I think I stopped writing in my livejournal because I joined myspace, and I think I am writing in my livejournal right now because I have a midterm tomorrow. My world reduced to syllogisms:

studying means procrastinating, I am studying, therefore I am procrastinating
livejournal heals all wounds, I have a livejournal, I am healed

so people are calling their livejournals blogs. Cool . BLOGS were on the cover of New York Magazine and are now a collective cultural phenomenon.
blogs are awesome, I have a blog, I am AWESOME.
I'm going to invite corporate sponsors to advertise on my BLOG and make nectarious profit ! CAPITALISM MY SWEET SWEET BABY. must gather cognizant stories and photos for my ravenous blog !

Oh I saw someone I used to date wearing cowboy boots. I hope that works out really really well for him. It's been working out well for my dad since the 70's. They've given Ivan the extra inch or so he's been desiring. They gave Sean Beach's life a new meaning and took him to a different location where he probably has a lot of sex. I think that was the right decision


currently : incessantly washing hands with soap, reading magazines instead of books, eating oranges instead of apples, assimilating myself to MAC instead of PC usage, wearing glasses almost all the time instead of almost never

the life and times(0)=0

a pleonasm: I started my internship today, just went in to say hi and I have the fruition to say right now that it's going to be AWESOME-- long story short I am in the process of joining myspace because I think it will help my career.
