My amazon order arrived a full week ahead of schedule... - Paint It Black
Living the American dream one heartbreaking piece at a time
My amazon order arrived a full week ahead of schedule...
... and I just finished watching one of the new additions to my collection. I had a hard choice between some the six options that I was presented with (unpacking this order was a real treat, almost like Christmas). Eventually I decided that since I was in sort of a quiet, easygoing yet melancholy mood that I should watch Cowboy Bebop: Tengoku no tobira, also known as "Cowboy Bebop: The Movie."

I made the right choice. The music is perfect, the story superb and the art just as good as I remember it from my copy of the series box set. It was good to see Spike, Faye and Jet again on my TV... in a way it was sort of like coming back to the town you grew up in and seeing familiar faces. On some primitive, simple level it just warms your heart.

Right now I'm converting my new CDs to MP3s and chatting a little bit with jingle on FurryMUCK. It's nice to see the Jinglecat again as it's been quite some time since we've talked. It does feel a little weird, we've each gone our separate ways over the last two years. Heck...so much has changed since then. Let's see, in two years... Jingle's gotten married and I've ended a relationship, landing firmly back at square one as a single guy. Jingle has bought a house, and I've moved from one apartment to another as I prepare to buy a house. They're small things in some cases, and not so small in others, that make it hard to find a common point to start a conversation from. How do you start when each of our lives have changed so much? Still it's nice that we got a chance to talk, stilted or otherwise, even if it was only for a few minutes. I don't talk nearly enough with my friends, and I rarely realize it until they've long gone. I wonder why that is.

At this point I'm two CDs down, and have one left to go. After I'm done converting my new Flaming Lips CD to MP3 I think I'll strap on my braces and give my wrists a rest before I go to sleep.

Is it woman, is it man?

Current Mood: drained drained
Current Music: Tulku - Golden Era

How's that bebop DVD?

I wanted to pick it up, Amazon didn't say if it had both language tracks on it or not. I assume it's widescreen and comes with many goodies?

And hooray - Lips! Which album?

I have to ask... is there any logic, rhyme, or reason to the quotes at the end of your posts? Here you quote what I read as a line from Metallica's cover of "Turn the Page", even though that's not what's listed as your "current music"...

Wow. Took me a moment to figure out why you specified the cover version, and not the original Bob Seger...then I remembered upon further contemplation that the lyric is actually slightly different between the two. My hat is off to you, sir :)

In a word: nope! Usually it's just a phrase that's turning over in the back of my head, some little snippet of a tune I heard in the last day or two. Once in a while it will have some passing relevance to the topic of my entry (snarky lyric for a bitchy entry, usually) bit that's gotten a lot less frequent. I just try to make sure that the lyric I grab isn't part of the bridge -- I like obscure ones.

Hey, Ferenhead. I know things had been rough for you relationship-wise for a while and you had been longing for a house. Back 2+ years ago, you were the one with the girlfriend and I was single, thinking I'd just keep growing older without finding anyone and stagnating in the same old routine until I die of old age or boredom. I envied you a little bit, truth be told. Then I went to AC, met my Mousie, started talking to her, and like a bolt from the heavens, everything changed so fast. In one year's time, I went from living alone with my mother in a small town to being married and living in a nice house in the big(ish) city.
But no matter how much things change for either one of us, I still consider you a good friend I can talk to about pretty much anything.
