Tied to a time
When we knew that the sun would shine
She was all smiles
And we could just talk for a while...
Of where we would be when the future comes
Of how she might heal while I played my songs

Strange how life never becomes
The way we see it when we're young.

If I could find her
I'd tell her about my life
Maybe I'd just write
To remind her of when we would dream...
Of where we would be when the future comes
How she could heal while I played my songs

Strange how you never become
The person you see when you're young

My thrilling Saturday night
"Cops" in HD.

That's about it.

How exciting.

I find this Paradise and rest beside a river
No need to walk another mile
It seems like everyone has everything that wishes could provide
But no one seems to smile

You won't believe me when I tell you this is fantasy
Don't ask how long all this can last
The same old sun will rise and make tomorrow just like yesterday
And so your time will pass

One day the wind may change and blow at your defenses
And shake the ground on which you stand
One day the tide may turn and wash away your castles in the sand
And silence rule the land

A shelter from the storm
A room without a view
A place where you belong
And like a mother's kiss
That carries you to sleep
The ignorance is bliss

One day the wind will change and blow away your wonderland
Blue skies will soon be overcast
One day the tide will turn and wash away your castles in the sand
And you'll find peace... at last...

The Wasteland of TV "Info"mercials.
Most of you may know that I'm really not a big TV guy. I enjoy a few shows, but I don't have cable TV and out side of the additional sports programming that it offers, I am perfectly happy with out it.

Anyway, I'm having one of those nights where I have a lot on my mind and can't really sleep. This early, there isn't much on, aside from Infomercials.

Which brings me to my point: Infomercials are amusing, amazing, and awesome for so many reasons.

They all seem to follow this really silly pattern of trying to look like a legitimate television program. "Welcome to Health Update," proclaims the announcer at the beginning of this extended advertisement, as though his being a part of this some how makes it more valid.

"We have an exciting show planned for today," the very serious host says, while wearing a suit that Johnny Carson would be proud of and not seeming very excited about this exciting show we've been promised.

He continues, "Joining me is MDR founder Pat Riley," as though the world is suppose to know who this loser is, and right on cue, they explain.

As the screen shows pictures of magazines (that don't really look like they have anything in common), the host continues, "You've all seen MDR in millions of magazines."

...Oh really?
I have?
Wow! I never knew that. Clearly I must know of this guy since I'm looking at a whole bunch of magazines right now.

"You've heard him on radio programs all across America!"

Wow, this Pat Riley guy must be a real big shot, being in millions of magazines and on radio programs all across America. I never knew! I'd better listen to what he says!

Out comes a man with a balding head, a beard and glasses, and you notice these things in that order. He talks for a while, spewing non-facts as though they were gospal. He could tell you that eating jars full of Mayonnaise is a healthy way to lose weight and sound like he really believed it.

I don't think the people that write these things give the audience much credit. I should take a page from them and go around telling people that they have obviously heard of me, since I've been in millions of magazines and been on radio shows all across America, after all. I would even show them pictures of a bunch of magazines like the infomercial did.

Of course, what infomercial would be complete with out "consumer" testimonials?

-"I had a tough time with my ____. It was always acting up, and it just wasn't like it use to be, then I tried _____ and suddenly, it was better then it ever was!"

-"I use to hate having to deal with ______, but thanks to my new ____, it's a breeze!"

-"I had tried everything for my ______, and was about to give up until I saw the TV ad for ____. I decided to give it a try, and I couldn't be happier with it!"

It doesn't really matter what the product is. You could even put the words "anus" and "Bob's Butt Plugs" into the above scenarios and it would work with this formula.
(Now, that would be an entertaining infomercial.)

There are a few of these paid programs I actually do enjoy watching. I always like the Time Life music ones. Those I sit through. However, I don't ever need to see another add for the "Showtime Rotisserie Grill!"

I can't imagine my self ever even beginning to contemplate purchasing one of the wacky items usually for sale in these infomercials. That said, someone must be buying this junk, otherwise we wouldn't seem them nearly as often as we do.

So rock on Infomercials. I salute you with as much disgust as I can muster at 4:30 AM!

Saw The Who tonight...
Man, what a show.

What an amazing show.

Simply one of the most amazing experiences I've ever had.

Despite the fact they didn't play a couple of my favorites (one I expected to hear, one I didn't), it was still awesome.

To make it even better, I got a free upgrade from the 300 level to the 200 section.


The only thing that would have made it better would have been having a friend to go with me. I don't know why, but it seems as though no body I know ever wants to go to a concert with me.

In my life time, I have never been to a concert with any friends, and it's not from lack of trying. I've paid for tickets, I've even gotten back stage passes and still no one will ever join me. Never. It never fails, they always bail. Always.

I couldn't even get my Dad to go with me to the show tonight.

Maybe I'm just not meant to go to a concert with friends.

I just wish I knew why.

Current Music: Leroy Hutson

My friends suck
Everyone bailed on me for this Alan Parsons concert.

So I end up eating the cost of the extra tickets, and I end up driving down to Eugene alone, with no place to stay now.

This is just wonderful. My friends are the best friends in the world. (Not really.)

I couldn't even bribe people to go to a concert with me, with the perk of getting to meet Alan Parsons afterward.

So, I just want to take this oppertunity to say screw you all. This was suppose to be the best weekend to ever have been, and now it looks like it will be a total crap fest.

So thanks. Thanks for nothing.

Current Mood: You really don't want to know.
