    no that any one reads this shit anyways but here we go. a new post.
    i'm now listening to the song So What by Ani DiFranco. she played it last night when i saw her at the Beacon Theatre in NYC. i almost cried as she played it. i realized just how much it pertains to me... here... read it and see for yourself:

    who's gonna give a shit
    who's gonna take the call
    when you find out that the road ahead
    is painted on a wall
    and you're turned up to top volume
    and you're just sitting there in pause
    with your feral little secret
    scratching at you with its claws
    and you're trying hard to figure out
    just exactly how you feel
    before you end up parked and sobbing
    forehead on the steering wheel

    who are you now
    and who were you then
    that you thought somehow
    you could just pretend
    that you could figure it all out
    the mathematics of regret
    so it takes two beers to remember now
    and five to forget
    that i loved you so
    yeah, i loved you, so what

    how many times undone
    can one person be
    as they're careening through the facade
    of their favorite fantasy
    you just close your eyes slowly
    like you're waiting for a kiss
    and hope some lowly little power
    will pull you out of this
    but none comes at first
    and little comes at all
    and when inspiration finally hits you
    it barely even breaks your fall

    who were you then
    and who are you
    now that you can't pretend
    that you can figure it all out
    subtract out the impact
    and the fall is all you get
    so it takes two beers to remember now
    and three more to forget
    that i loved you so
    yeah, i loved you, so what
    i loved you
    so what
