yesterday i woke up sucking a lemon

Take a long hot shower and listen to Kid A...you’ll never be the same.

There are musicians in this world whose creations I at certain times, actually feel myself needing...craving. The sounds, the chords, the melodies, the voices, the rhythms, the lyrics even, all put together in such magnificent ways, inspiring people, provoking every kind of emotion and sensation imaginable, healing. I can’t even bring myself to consider what life would be like without being able to listen to and hear these things. I’m grateful.

Did life actually exist before I was introduced to the indescribable beauty that is Radiohead? The complete and utter poetic perfection that is Elliott Smith? The wonderful stories told by Bob Dylan’s voice that never leave me without a smile on my face or a tear running down my cheek? The honesty and warmth that radiate out from within the songs of Iron and Wine? I could seriously go on forever.

There are so many incredible artists out there. I can only hope that they are/were content AT LEAST, swimming in the awareness of their amazing abilities. To be able to add something so beautiful to people’s lives is a fucking gift. Pure, and at times intoxicating goodness...God fucking bless every single one of them.

A few weeks ago was my friend's birthday. That nite, we went to a club, my first time. It wasn't nearly as bad as I thought it would be. I heard "everything in its right place" but I didn't recognize it at first. All I could hear was that pounding beat and haunting tones at the beginning. As soon as it repeated a couple times, I knew immediately it was radiohead, having heard the song before, but not in that context. As the song went on, I recognized it and was completely lost in the moment. I've been listening to that song constantly since then.

Is life predestined or a series of tragicomic coincidences, teetering on the edge of extinction? I hope so.
