i love the way you move, baby

April 26 - Jazz Fest!

April 28 - Alpharetta!

I have seen 7 Dave Matthews Band shows in which 122 songs were played, an average of 17.43 songs per show. At these 7 shows, there were 74 different songs played. (song stats here)

summertime and the wind is blowing outside

The cigarette ash flies in your eyes and you don't mind. You smile and say the world, it doesn't fit with you. I don't believe you. You're so serene. Careening through the universe. Your axis on a tilt. You're guiltless and free.

i needed that. seven days on a southeast tour.

i feel rested. and ready to take on my work again.

and my life.

i'm sort of excited. and quite content.

I go home to the coast. It starts to rain I paddle out on the water, alone. Taste the salt and taste the pain. I'm not thinking of you again.

... and I've never been so alive.

i think that she knows

I like that he did this - it's my favorite part of Lovestoned. And I really have an affection for looping machines. I've never seen John Mayer live. Part of me thinks it could be boring. Part of me doesn't like the stories I've heard about him. And part of me loves his music every time I listen to it... I think, actually I know, I need to see John Mayer live. I just need to know.

funny the way it is if you think about it

download the new single here:

somebody's going hungry and someone else is eating out.
funny the way it is - not right or wrong.
somebody's heart is broken and it becomes your favorite song.

you take my hand and drag me head first

And I don't know why, but with you,
I'd dance in a storm in my best dress.

you'll be the prince and i'll be the princess

I'm listening to the new Taylor Swift cd. Uncharacteristic, yes. I'm also reading Midnight Sun - the partial draft of the version of Twilight from Edward's point of view. Not so uncharacteristic at this point.

And the two combined make me realize that women have the same emotions from the time they're born until the day they die (I assume). At the very least, until the time they're 24 years old.

We all want to be loved and protected and desired. Forever. That's all.

That's all. (I'm chuckling to myself right now....)

That's the very premise of the book Captivating that I never finished. And it's not that I didn't believe the book, it's just that it is so very evident from the pieces of my life right now. If you put them together, it's right there. Obvious.

And maybe I'm the last person to notice and think this. Maybe I'm just slow to put my thoughts into words. Hmm.

Romeo, save me. I've been feeling so alone. I keep waiting for you, but you never come.

let's finish off this bottle & open another one or two

Come on, its a good good time tonight to be here with you. Smoke your cigarettes. Drink your wine. Have a good good time.

Kt and I were third row during this - a little to the left - in front of Boyd.

I wish they had recorded this song. *sigh* R.I.P Leroi.

Dance if you're feeling blue. You can shake it off. You can shake it off. You can shake if off. If you will, it's a good good time tonight.

big girls don't cry

sometimes i don't think i will ever be able to have the life i want. i will never live alone or travel long distances or figure out what i want to do with my life or get a salary and have health insurance. i will never find someone who's attention i can keep for more than a few dates or (at best) a few years. i will never find someone who can't imagine their life without me. dreams fade. people go away.

life is very disheartening sometimes. and it's not just me.

things keep coming and i keep wondering

Doesn't matter how tough we are, trauma always leaves a scar. It follows us home, it changes our lives, trauma messes everybody up, but maybe that's the point. All the pain and the fear and the crap. Maybe going through all of that is what keeps us moving forward. It's what pushes us. Maybe we have to get a little messed up, before we can step up. -- Alex Karev, Grey's Anatomy

... I start feeling the walls close in. Things keep coming and I keep stumbling. I start feeling I'm strong enough to break.

and it's alright. yeah, it's alright.

Dear April,

Last year you sucked. I apologize for thinking you were the problem of 2008 when it turns out you merely 1/12 of the issue. That was rude. However, you still really really sucked. Please be nice this year. I don't have the time to mess around with you. Thank you.

Yours truly,
