My Own Pretty Glossolalia Machine 2.0


From Blogizdat LJ:

Pretty Glossolalia Machine 1.0 here

"There Is A Breeze
Mark Henley

"There is a breeze that comes by here everyday, Freshens the spirit, takes the dead away, There is a sun that shines for you and you and me, It's been healing nights for centuries...Fool, I say fool, You waste time as a rule, You don't measure days one by one, I don't mean to draw tears or bring sorrow to your years, I love you and I'd like to see you freer...You stopped believin' years ago, Been retrieving ever since you know, She says you're doing fine, And you believe her - La ...There is a feelin', it comes here everyday, Turns your head around, takes your breath away, It clears the morning eyes of you and you and me, We've been sleeping now for centuries...Don't you understand, We've wasted all the time we can, The waters of your soul are getting drier...And the circles that grow from the stones that we throw, Rush to the shore and then they die there, And your far away dream, Is only there because you seem to think it is...

Today's Randomnimity


From Blogizdat LJ:

*) Spring started officially on March 21st, and I've heard a few robins sing, but it's hard to take it seriously when the trees are still bare and the grass is still brown - I want see some green, demmit!

*) I know it's all a matter of taste, but I'm continually amazed that so many people like the things they do, things that I find most dreadful, almost as if ugliness is the all-encompassing aesthetic of the post-modern age, I mean, am I just some kind of cultural snob for still loving beauty - or am I the only one who does?

*) I thought both the first season of the American 'Shameless' and the most recent season of 'Californication' were written, cast and acted brilliantly, but I'm giving the slight edge to Californication, cause even though William Macy makes a great Frank Ghallagher, David Duchovny plays Hank Moody to even-more-brilliant perfection

From Blogizdat LJ:

*) Spring Is Icumen In, Lhude Sing Cuccu

*) I know, I know, pain is part of the human condition, and that without illness we would never appreciate wellness, but I''m just so over it all, really, I mean, why does the head/foot/back/heart ache have to hurt so bad, so much of the time - seriously, pain is a bitch, and I'm a hella coward when it comes to such things - indeed, I always read in the obits that someone has lost a 'courageous' battle with some condition or other, and I'm always a bit impressed, but if I'm being honest, I can assure you that will never be said of me, I will be the one in palliative care whimpering and whinging about how I can't take it any more, and dear gawd, won't they please increase my morphine drip, and I just know my trip across the River Styx will be a most pusillanimous one, of that I'm sure.
