the only way i think that you could feel how much i love you is if you could curl up real small and crawl into my heart and i would hold you there inside the very middle of me. but really, that's how it feels: like you are there inside my heart always. and it is the loveliest feeling i have ever had.

For my own reference. [30 Oct 2003|02:47am]
I can't sleep. Therefore I write pointless lists.

Since moving to Saskatchewan on August 29th, I have seen the following bands/artists (in chronological order):

09/04 Fembots - Louis', Saskatoon
09/04 Jim Bryson - Louis', Saskatoon
09/04 the Weakerthans - Louis', Saskatoon
09/05 Fembots - the State, Regina
09/05 Jim Bryson - the State, Regina
09/05 the Weakerthans - the State, Regina
09/06 Sylvie - the Exchange, Regina
09/06 the Constantines - the Exchange, Regina
09/08 Oddities - Praireland Park, Saskatoon
09/08 Lillix - Praireland Park, Saskatoon
09/08 Not By Choice - Praireland Park, Saskatoon
09/08 Blackalicious - Praireland Park, Saskatoon
09/08 American Hi-Fi - Praireland Park, Saskatoon
09/12 Smokekiller - Broadway Theatre, Saskatoon
09/12 Mad Violet - Broadway Theatre, Saskatoon
09/12 Ron Sexsmith - Broadway Theatre, Saskatoon
09/26 Bottleneck - the Exchange, Regina
09/26 Ben Sures - the Exchange, Regina
09/26 Brundlefly - the Owl, Regina
10/26 Danny Michel - Lydia's, Saskatoon
11/08 Sam Roberts w/Matt Mays and El Torpedo - Prairieland Park, Saskatoon
11/08 Stars - Amigo's, Saskatoon


That's quite a lot for two months! I will add to this list as I continue to go to shows. I really wanted to see Hot Little Rocket on September 27th but we got there too late. I am seperated by two degrees to the drummer of Hot Little Rocket. The Dears are playing here this weekend, but I'm not sure if I will go.

I like music.

I'm pretty sad about Elliott Smith.

I saved this photo as "summerfeet.jpg" because of the time of year it was taken (last week). But then I remembered that blackcandy likes pictures of feet, so this is also for her.

say hello wave goodbye [23 May 2003|11:57pm]
Tonight the air is warm and muggy. The rain is falling lightly and there is a cool breeze blowing through the trees. It reminds me so much of late nights last summer in Quebec City; I think my heart might burst with nostalgia.

HAAAAAAAPPY BIRTHDAY SAM!


If I could, I'd give you a big squeezy hug. You'd be gasping for me to let you go.

eclectic tastes [20 Apr 2003|12:51pm]
LAST CD YOU BOUGHT: I bought the Fugees greatest hits for my friend's birthday. Oh, and I purchased Jill Barber's cd online, but it hasn't arrived yet.
LAST CD YOU BOUGHT USED: I can't remember.
CD YOU ARE THINKING OF BUYING NEXT: Oh my, this list could go on forever. The White Stripes, The Dears, Ben Harper, All Girl Summer Fun Band, and soon to be released Danny Michel, The New Pornographers, The Weakerthans ...
CD YOU LENT TO SOMEONE AND YOU WANT BACK: Tony borrowed my Norah Jones cd, but I'm not in a big rush to get it back.
CD THAT SKIPS AND IRRITATES YOU BECAUSE YOU LOVE IT LIKE THE SISTER YOU NEVER HAD: R.E.M. - Automatic For the People
CD THAT MAKES YOU WANT TO DANCE (IF YOU DON'T DANCE MODIFY THE TERM WITH, NOD YOUR HEAD OR, TAP YOUR FEET): The New Pornographers - Mass Romantic
CD THAT PUTS YOU IN THE MOOD: Zero 7 - Simple Things
CD WHICH WAS LAST IN YOUR CD PLAYER: Destroyer - This Night

ps. Want to know something absolutely ridiculous? I really want to go to the Justin Timberlake/Christina Aguilera concert. I won't because the cheapest tickets are $65 and there are plenty other shows I'd like to see this summer, but still. It would be so much fun! I have a weakness for manufactured pop music and I'm proud of it.

Sometimes I feel like my head might explode after reading (and writing and talking) about race, class, gender, and the media for weeks and weeks. And I don't mean that in a bad way. I love sociology but sometimes the material can be very frustrating. This is why I hardly ever write anything political in my journal or get into heated discussions online. It's not because I don't care, or because I avoid conflict. And it certainly doesn't mean I don't think about these matters. Sometimes I think too much. It's because if I were to get into it, I would get too involved for my own good. Maybe some of you know what I mean.

Perhaps this summer when my brain requires some stimulation we can all sit down and have a nice chat.

It's late and I'm wide awake, wired on caffeine. Fun random facts, survey style! Read more... )

I hope you have a wonderful day!

for rainy days when you need it the most [08 Apr 2003|03:02pm]
Do you ever hear a song and then become obsessed with it, repeating it over and over and over again? I heard "In Perfect Time" by Jill Barber on New Music Canada's radio show Saturday night and I've been listening to it non-stop ever since. It's been in my head for the past three days and I'm not getting sick of it at all. I even find myself humming the tune on the bus.

Here's a link if you want to hear it: http://www.newmusiccanada.ca/genres/artist.cfm?Band_Id=6624
It's a bit folky with a twangy guitar, but her voice is like that of an old jazzy blues singer. I've been listening to a lot of this type of music lately. Swoon!

eat-in or take-out [31 Mar 2003|12:38am]
[ mood | aggravated ]

I keep telling myself that this 'whole leaving things until the very last minute' is good practice for working against time if/when I ever get into journalism and will constantly be dealing with deadlines.

Sometimes I can fool myself into believing it too. Ha!

I'm tired and I want to sleep. I wish I never took this stupid developmental psych class. I hate it. This stupid observation assignment I'm working on is so pointless anyways. The results have no relevance to the real world of psychological research and didn't even remotely resemble ANYTHING you'd actually do in a real observational research study. It seems like pointless busy work. I wish I'd taken Sociology of the 3rd World, or a Poli-Sci class, or something that I'm even remotely interested in. (I hate how I end my sentences with prepositiions too but I'm not going to do anything to change it right now.)

Sigh. Hindsight is 20/20 I suppose. I feel like I've waisted four months just to get three lame unassigned credits. Don't mind me. I'm just in a very bitter, trying to finish this term without going insane, hating everything because I just want to sleep, pms-y mood. Back to work!

dilly of a pickle [24 Mar 2003|07:53pm]
Why don't I ever learn? I am officially the worst procrastinator in the world. No wait that doesn't make sense. I'm the best. I hate that feeling when you finally realize how much work you actually have to do and how little time you have to do it. It's this horrible, sinking, "why do I do this to myself" feeling that just makes you want to curl into the fetal position and hide in bed. I'm right there. Right now. *cries* Thank you, ten page media studies paper.

I'm not stressing as much as usual though, because I know myself well enough and know that somehow, someway, I will pull this out of my ass and get a reasonably good mark on it. And I don't mean to be arrogant at all. I guess I just work well under pressure, which explains why my attempts to finish this paper early have failed so miserably. However, what doesn't help the stress level is me constantly reminding myself how well I have to do this term so that I can transfer to a good school this September.

Also, the internet is a terrible distraction! I need to ween myself off online journaling again. It usually happens every summer when I'm busy working and doing fun things everyday.

As much as I love school, I am so ready for this term to end. Goal for tonight: 4-5 pages.

Regarding shirts: do you say button-up or button-down?

"I got this rad button-up shirt at the thrift store."
"Check out the cute boy in the button-down shirt."

sounds familiar [19 Mar 2003|08:29pm]
"We emerged from youth all wide-eyed like the rest. Shedding skin faster than skin can grow, and armed with hammers, feathers, blunt knives: words, to meet and to define and to... but you must know the same games that we played in dirt, in dusty school yards has found a higher pitch and broader scale than we feared possible, and someone must be picked last, and one must bruise and one must fail..."
