My Freznedesque pet peeve.

Like Frezned with "42" this bothers me way more than it should.

Muse: 1. in ancient Greek mythology any of 9 daughters of Zeus and Mnemosyne; protector of an art or science. 2.the source of an artist's inspiration.

Dear youtube commenters,

Stop dedicating love songs on youtube to your "muse", also known as the girl who left you three years ago because all you did was watch music videos for songs about romance and never got around to actually love them, either that or your wife. Either way, stop using the word "muse" it just makes you sound pretentious and self important.

One of these days I should get around to actually writing a legit post with some sort of point.

How I deal with stress

I clear off a space in a table/desk/floor/where ever and get something done I've been meaning to do f0r a while, in emotionless mechanical ecstasy.

Doubt

May 3rd


God, what have you done?
Why did you make us this way?
Must clay be obedient?
Have you torn us down to build us up?
Have you buried us in to dig us out?
What if you have?
Would it matter?
The shadow proves the sunshine.
But who caused the shadow?
I know you are holy but I don't understand.
God, why? Why must we be broken before we are whole?
You could have ordered
the world anyway you liked.
Why this way?

The Chou Effect.

Define: You. You is the second-person pronoun in Modern English. 

Define: Chew. A wad of something chewable as tobacco.

As you can see there is a distinct difference between these two words. Throughout my entire music listening career I have silently noticed and accepted a phenomenon that I like to call "The Chou Effect.". (That's pronounced "Ch" as in "Change" and "ou" is in the last two letters of "you") It doesn't matter that I decided to call it "The Chou Effect" thirty seconds ago, I still like to call it that. Musicians, or as they call them "artists", have decided that blur the lines between these two words "You" and "Chew" and make a new word "Chou". It really just means "you" and everyone knows that. Seriously, am I the only one that notices this? I don't think so. There are dozens of examples. I'll list just a couple, because I love these songs and they also are perfect examples. 

First: "You're All I Have" -Snow Patrol
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6RcP95XiSS8 Listen for the line "It's so clear now that Chou are all that I have." And yes, Micah, even in this video he's kind of a spaz. It's the hair. 

Second: With or Without You - U2
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WdlPjAJFIrw U2 was never very good at music videos. The line ought to be "With our Without you" But once again we here that familiar word Chou.

Not like any of this matters, but it ought to be said.

The Hipster.

We are a generation
Who knows exactly who we aren't
I'm not my parents.
And I'm certainly
Not going to let myself get grouped in
With all this "generation" crap.
I'm not you!
But you're obviously trying to be me.
We're not those peope who look like fools over there!
The one's laughing!
I'm not a thing like my friends.
They ain't like me.
We're a generation
Who knows exactly who we are.
I'm weird.
I'm different.
It says so on my facebook.
I'm into The Panda Bears
Yeah, of course you've never heard of them.
I'm a poet.
Like Ginsberg, but no homo.
Because he was different.
I'm allowed to be like him,
Cause he's dead.
He died when I was seven.
April Fifth nineteen ninety seven.
That's who I am.
I don't buy into this "live like there's no tomorrow" jargon.
Or this "Dance like no one's watching" garbage.
I know who I am!
I'm different!
I'm not like everyone else!
I'm the "G" In the Godel's Incompleteness theorem of society!
I'm a void.
