A Little of Everything…

January 25, 2011

So tonight is the State of the Union Address.  I have to be up unbelievably early tomorrow, so I’m not going to partake.  Doesn’t mean I won’t have to hear all the Republican Regurgitation when I get home from work tomorrow…  Part of me wants to say that Obama will say the magic words that will snap this country back to one that I can be proud of, but I doubt that will happen.  Too many people have drank the tea and I think it’s going to be a long time before people start thinking straight again.

Anyway, I think I’ve finally figured out where to go with the vampire novel.  I’ve got a general outline and hopefully am down to three segments.  Hopefully will have that done some point in early February and queried out not long after.  Lulu is fun, but I still feel kind of weird about self-publishing.  Maybe it’s a certain level of having someone else say, “This shit is good” and having them convince other people to publish it.

And lyrics of the day.  I was messing around on Youtube and found this song.  The band is a part of the New Pornographers “network”, being where Kathryn Calder started off and she does most of the vocals for this song.  Easily one of the most remarkable pieces of music I’ve heard lately (Even if the song is six years old).  It kind of perfectly encapsulates where my mindset was for a very long time.

“No Way Out”

 

I didn’t wanna stay
I didn’t wanna stay
I didn’t wanna go
I didn’t wanna fight
Anymore

I didn’t wanna stay
I didn’t wanna stay
But I didn’t wanna leave
I didn’t wanna plead
Anymore

And those nights just kept turning to day
Nothing ever seemed to change
It was just that impossible way
You had of making everything seem so strange.
So strange.

I had no way around
I had no way around
A tide had crossed my path
I knew that I was trapped
On those rocks.

So I just had to jump
I closed my eyes and jumped
I had no other choice
A scream replaced my voice
In the sea.

And your eyes just kept turning away
Distracted every single time
By what someone else had to say
More important to you
It seemed so strange.
So strange.

No way out
No way out
Backed up against that wall where there’s
No way out
No way out
Nothing left to do but kick and scream and shout

No way out
No way out
Backed up against that wall where there’s
No way out
No way out
Nothing left to do but kick and scream and shout

I didn’t wanna go
I didn’t wanna go
I didn’t wanna stay
With nothing left to say
Anymore.

I didn’t wanna sleep
I didn’t wanna sleep
But I couldn’t stay awake
I couldn’t even make
It to bed.

And your eyes just kept turning away
Distracted every single time
By what someone else had to say
More important to you
It seemed so strange.
So strange.

No way out
No way out
Backed up against that wall where there’s
No way out
No way out
Nothing left to do but kick and scream and shout.

No way out
No way out
Backed up against that wall where there’s
No way out
No way out
Nothing left to do but kick and scream and shout.

And your eyes just kept turning away
And your nights just kept turning to day
And there was nothing more to say

No way out
No way out
Backed up against that wall where there’s
No way out
No way out
Nothing left to do but kick and scream and shout

And your eyes just kept turning away
(No way out, No way out
Backed up against that wall where there’s)
And there was nothing more to say
(No way out
No way out
Nothing left to do but kick and scream and shout)

And your eyes just kept turning away
And there was nothing more to say.
