Hello again, old friend.

SOOOOOO IT'S BEEN a while. Feels almost new. I just thought, "who wouldn't want to document their life?" and now here we are.

And what a great day to start the livejournal revival. Maybe I'll make keeping up with this my resolution. I didn't even think of one on new years eve.

Anyways, today. I guess I'll start from here and work my way back. Not longer than maybe ten minutes ago I witnessed the moon (somewhere between a new moon and crescent) falling towards the earth. I never really took the time to notice the slow revolutions our planet is constantly in a state of. It's normally very strenuous to focus on something like this with an unaided eye, lucky for me I found a pair of binoculars today in the trunk of my neighbors car (yes I'm allowed to be in there). With these new super powers my eyes attained I watched as the moon set. Seeing the magnified rock in this way had an almost dizzying effect. For a moment, I paused in awe; My world suddenly seemed upside down (and technically every other direction too). If you ever get the chance to stargaze with a telescope or anything similar, don't think twice, treat yourself to this natural spectacle.

I feel like watching life now.

Other than that my day was kind of lazy. That's fine though, this winter break with everyone home in Jupiter has worn me out. I needed the break. And nothing is more relaxing than hanging out with your brother and listening to records. We listened to quite a lot now that I think of it, but it seemed to go by so fast. We listened to a few of my christmas presents and other new albums. First we listened to Amnesiac by Radiohead. I can say without hesitation that that album alone changed my life completely. I may not know what Thom Yorke has to say most of the time, but damnit they write some great songs. To this day I feel like I've never heard anything like it. I'm sure you've guessed by now that I like it. Next we heard Amputechture by The Mars Volta. This is the last album with their original drummer Jon Theodore. I remember being so upset when I heard that Jon was leaving the band. I really thought no one in the world could play better than him. Sure enough Omar and Cedric found someone who plays in a way that I can only describe as 'beastly.' Thomas Pridgen was no Jon Theodore, but in all fairness, Jon Theodore was no Thomas Pridgen. In the end, their charm was lost and my taste in music had mutated, but they sure do rock my face off to this day. Then we listened to The Bends by Radiohead (I'm not sure why we flip-flopped bands). The bends is a classic rock/pop album. I really don't have much more to say. After that we kept on going with Radiohead and put on Kid gAy. This album has always had a special place in my heart. Always. It has a way of making me tranquil. Finally, we listened to Owen Pallet, who, don't get me wrong, I love, but in all honestly I tend to feel a little bored and sleepy while listening to his recordings. I wanted to smoke some weed and listen to I'm Wide Awake, It's Morning (and I have a boner [as biff would say is the actual title]) by Bright Eyes, but Bren had to go home. Maybe next time.

I don't feel like writing anymore so I'll close with some lyrics to a song I've been jamming for the past few days. I'm not very good, and it will take me a long time to finish (IF I finish), but what the hell.

I know that you lost your flower;
some dirt without a seed.
Time to accept reality;
no more make believe.

Get outta your seat;
get onto your feet.
This world is so empty without you;
Is there anything I can do?

By the way, the song of the night is We are nowhere and it's now by Bright Eyes.Goodbye.
