...and what were the three of us doing that night, exactly? john, jacob, and me. girls night out, guys night in. all i remember is playing t. rex on my new used stereo, and then we watched that fat, flamboyant kid sing "over the rainbow" on gorillamask.

mad money, the bucket list, cloverfield. i can't believe this pile of shit clogging up movie theaters. why do films like this get made? who's still going out and seeing these movies? haven't people seen enough films to just be completely disgusted with mainstream cinema? and people are always attacking movies for being too violent, or too sexual in nature. people need to take a stronger stand against absolute garbage. but then again, something like hustle and flow surprises me, so i don't know what to think anymore...

some people are just born with talent, or else they're well-connected. i wonder if these people ever had to spend months brooding, contemplating the absurdity of our existence, worried about whether they'll sink or swim.

an allegory: this kid starts a garden. but he's only got one seed. he plants the seed and waters it, and he waters it, but nothing happens. finally, after a little nurturing, it grows, but just a tiny bit. just enough to know the damn thing's alive. he keeps watering it, hoping it'll grow into something, something big, like a goddamn tree or some shit. but it doesn't really grow into what he thinks it will. so, he decides to just leave it alone for a while. maybe it needs some independence, some sunlight, some time to grow on its own, he thinks. this dumb kid. and he sits by the window, watching, waiting, every single day, for that fucking thing to grow. sure, there are weeds, and there's some awful goddamn rotten soil, but he believes in it. he believes it'll grow. it fucking has to.

Rambo comes out on Jan 25. Who wants to see a senior citizen try to take down an army.

Just to change it up, how about the Power Station covering T. Rex on cassette. Actually, I do have it on vinyl.
