Put Your Arms Around Me|Texas

Are you ready maybe I know where to run
Are you ready to let yourself drown
Are you holding your breath
Are you ready or not

Are you ready maybe too long to confess
Do you feel that youre already numb
Are you sure of yourself
Would you lie if youre not

You tire me out
Dont wanna let that happen
A secret scream so loud
Why did you let that happen

Ooh ooh so put your arms around me
You let me believe that you were someone else
Ooh ooh cause only time can take you
So let me believe
That I am someone else

Mani, are you ready to break
Do you think that I push you too far
Would you open yourself
Are you reckless some nights

You tire me out
Dont wanna let that happen
A secret scream so loud
Why did you let that happen

Ooh ooh so put your arms around me
You let me believe that you were someone else
Ooh ooh cause only time can take you
So let me believe
That I am someone else

You tire me out
Dont wanna let that happen
A secret scream so loud
Why did you let that happen

Ooh ooh so put your arms around me
You let me believe that you were someone else
Ooh ooh cause only time can take you
So let me believe
That I am someone else

What are brothers for?

Critiquing an anti-Bush|Saw satire?
or dying on the battlefield?

I can't bear to think of my two nephews and the world
they will inherit.

At least I know their parents are making a difference.

I have such a negative view of the world...

ex NYTimes.com

The most depressing thing about this series is not the creativity of the bloodletting but the bleak view of human nature, specifically our talent for ruining the present to avenge the past. In the opening scene, a man frees himself from an ankle restraint by pulverizing his foot with a brick; fortunately, all we have to do is get up and leave.

“Saw III” is rated R (Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian). It is obscene in every regard.


2,809 US troops killed in Iraq.
Two families are pending notification.

The scariest word known to man: UNTIL.

2,80? and counting...


and I saw a "preview" to HOSTEL II?
What?
Did I get confused with CNN again?

Anybody know this guy?

You can say (or not say) what you want...

Well, you can say what you want
But it won't change my mind
I'll feel the same
About you
And you can tell me your reasons
But it won't change my feelings
I'll feel the same
About you

Something transcendental
This influence deepens the emotions and creates a greater need to belong to an individual or to a group. Friendships are extremely important to you today, and they may change your life. Love relationships are more intense, and physical sexuality is experienced as something transcendental. This is a good time to try to understand your emotions and how they affect your relationships. Today you can enrich and enhance a relationship as you realize the strength of your feelings, in a moment when you experience the full force of your emotion. Certainly any emotion that you feel today will have extraordinary force and vigor. No experience under this influence is superficial, nor would you be satisfied with any that was.

White.


Truce.
Surrender.
Purity of heart.
Purity of mind.
Blending of all colors (additive).

Mostly truce.

The most frightening word, ever: until


We haven't crossed into 2,800...
until there've been five knocks-on-the-door notifications.

Five chaplains, ten military representatives.

God be with those specific families.

Crazy. Loco. Plain, ol' outta-my-mind.

i'm so in love with you
i'm so in love with you
whether it is right or it's wrong
i'm too weak to be strong
i'm so in love with you

So in Love (with You)|TEXAS

God.
To hear Annie Lennox sing this.
Brilliant, nonetheless.

Austen: Happy Birthday!


Sapphire blue?
Your color, right?

What goes around,
comes around.

That's about all I can say to you.

Over, and out.
But certainly not down, and out.

I really pity you.
"I'm damaged goods."
"I'm afraid I'm going to fuck this up."
Blah blah blah.
And I fell for that?
I was cautioned "he's playing the victim."

I should have realized in January,
when I was sick, and out of work,
and all you cared about was going on vacation in February and April.
And then the story about you smoking a pack of cigarettes and drinking,
on New Year's Eve, because my quite unexpected hospitalization
"ruined" your night.

I guess you can't do any better than that.
A manipulative fucking cry-baby.

Sad.
You're in the very field where you are supposed to help people.
You don't even have a good relationship with your own dogs,
and that speaks, excuse me, BARKS volumes.

It's good you can wear a mask to work.
Then again, you're dealing with your intellectual equals.

Remember this:
I may only have two photographs,
but I have thousands of stories,
and a very good memory.

What a sad, sad story.
Apparently you think people are disposable.
Like the trash you are so quick and routine to dispose of.

You see if there's someone else,
of my caliber.

Get out your dildo(s).
I think it|they want|s to cook you dinner.

And maybe, just maybe,
you'll get some good conversation out of it later.

Gary was oh-so-right.
I should have stayed home in the first place.
And if I had gone down the road I was at the beginning of,
I wouldn't have cared. About you. Your name.
Or your "human" side.
You would have been a piece of meat.
Nothing more. Nothing less.

Remember: nothing is ever wasted on me.
I learn from everything.
Even Grace's death was the biggest gift to me.

This isn't even in that league,
but I am the wiser.
Much, much wiser.

And the next one? Will wear a ring. On the right finger.

I believe you told me a promise laced with lies –Texas

Kill Yourself.


Let's go, motherfucker.
Do it.

Alison

Goldfrapp.

Bark bark woof.

Should be considered armed, + dangerous.



I've got 5 shots.
By the time you hear the arrow,
it's already too late.

Proceed with caution.
Contact the proper authorities.

ex|Quiver


The unaimed arrow never misses.

Shoot an arrow into the sky and if it goes up,
good for you.

Doggy Style|Part II


Nice view.
Have some pillow while you're at it.

At the very least, you have something to concentrate on.
'Cause you know I'm thinking of someone else.

That's the way (uh huh, uh huh) I like it...


Nothing better than doin' it doggy-style.
Ask Alison.

Blogger was down for most of yesterday.
That's either good or bad.
Good because you don't have to read my rantings.
Bad because I couldn't rant,
and it was a day of serious spleen-venting.
