Ah... Back from Rocky Horror. Was a good night, thanks to everyone that showed up. Big thanks to MrVader and Andy for seriously refreshing my memory. Not having been to a RHPS screening in over a decade, I'd pretty much forgotten all of the shoutback lines. They made it easy for me to remember!

Now I sleep. The Northern Chinese I conquered earlier tonight seem to be preparing for a bloody uprising, so I think I'll need all the rest I can get.

Tho' much is taken, much abides; and tho'
We are not now that strength which in old days
Moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are,--
One equal temper of heroic hearts,
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

-- Tennyson, Excerpt from Ulysses

Blah. Working hard. I have a headache. Apparently my plans for tonight have completely fallen through. Great.

Happy Fucking Halloween.

Spent the night dealing with a throat that was burning from all the stomach acid I was coughing up. As a result, I slept like shit and even overslept, losing two hours of working time this morning. Goddamnit.


"People just ain't no good
I think that's well understood
You can see it everywhere you look
People just ain't no good

We were married under cherry trees
Under blossoms we made our vows
All the blossoms come sailing down
Through the streets and through the playgrounds

The sun would stream on the sheets
Awoken by the morning bird
We'd buy the Sunday newspapers
And never read a single word

People they ain't no good
People they ain't no good
People they ain't no good

Seasons came, Seasons went
The winter stripped the blossoms bare
A different tree now lines the streets
Shaking its fists in the air
The winter slammed us like a fist
The windows rattling in the gales
To which she drew the curtains
Made out of her wedding veils

People they ain't no good
People they ain't no good
People they ain't no good at all

To our love send a dozen white lilies
To our love send a coffin of wood
To our love let all the pink-eyed pigeons coo
That people they just ain't no good

To our love send back all the letters
To our love a valentine of blood
To our love let all the jilted lovers cry
That people they just ain't no good

It ain't that in their hearts they're bad
They can comfort you, some even try
They nurse you when you're ill of health
They bury you when you go and die
It ain't that in their hearts they're bad
They'd stick by you if they could
But that's just bullshit, baby
People just ain't no good

People they ain't no good
People they ain't no good
People they ain't no good
People they ain't no good at all."


-- Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, People Ain't No Good

Run, but don't be scared to look behind.
Stop, don't wait too long, make up your mind.
The end is almost here,
the sky, the air, so nice and clear,
the sound of your decay,
and the ringing in the air is the sweet debris of yesterday.

There, now that you know it's not so bad.
See, the good meet soon for lots of air.
So if you try to enhance,
we don't deserve another chance.
Just laugh along the way,
and kiss your ass goodbye with a shadow dream of yesterday.

Yesterday, the good old days.
Yesterday, the way we used to play.
Yesterday, it just got worse and worse.
Yesterday, the future's been rehearsed.

Run, but don't be scared to look behind.
Stop, don't wait too long, make up your mind.
The end is almost here,
the sky, the air, so nice and clear,
the sound of your decay,
and the ringing in the air is the sweet debris of yesterday.

Yesterday,
yesterday.

Stupid orgonic vibrations.

Been hanging out at home for a few hours, doing some light work and resting my throat. Mostly gearing up for tonight. Just stepped outside for a moment, though, to see what the weather was like, and I swear that I could hear somebody whispering to me, just over my left shoulder.

That hasn't happened since high school. Goddamn, is it ever annoying.

Repeat screaming until jumping up and down, crying.

So you're feeling unimportant,
'Cuz you've got nothing to say.
And your life is just a ramble
No one understands you anyway.

Well, I got a piece of news, son,
That might make you change your mind:
Your life is historically meaningful,
And spans a significant time.

Slumber will come soon,
And you are helping put it to sleep.
Side by side we do our share,
To faithfully assure that
Slumber will come soon.

Well, now, do you feel a little better?
Lift up your head and walk away
Knowing we're all in this together
For such a short time, anyway.

There is just no time to parade around sulking,
I would rather laugh than cry.
The rich, the poor, the strong, the weak,
We share this place together
And we pitch in to help it die.

I'm not too good at giving morals,
And I don't fear the consequence.
If life makes you scared and bitter,
At least it's not for very long.

Slumber will come soon,
And you are helping put it to sleep.
Side by side we do our share,
To faithfully assure that
Slumber will come soon.



-- Bad Religion, Slumber


Fuck this. I'm going for a walk.
