A Tribute

to musician that I love and his former band.

"Oh, the sound of rollin' dice to me is music in the air"

"No one beats him at his game For very long but just the same "

"I cannot risk the bet, cause hearts are fragile toys, so easy to forget."

"He tries to scare us, with angry words but we all know that they're lies "

"'Cause promises like lives, can be bought so very cheap."

"All dressed up with nowhere to go"

"There's something inside your head"

"Round that corner, man hiding in the trash can
Something's waiting now to pounce, and how you'll scream"

"Let's imitate reality
Let's strive for mediocrity
Let's make believe we're all the same
Let's sanitize our little brains "

"But go ahead sleep tight in your beds, remember what the wise man said"

"They're busy building toys and absolutely no one's dead"

"I never was a punk
I never shot junk
I never even tried counter
Culture passed me right by
(I'm on the outside)"

"A million years of evolution, we get Danny Quayle"

"Diagrams and charts, mending broken hearts"

"We close our eyes
We close our eyes and dream
And the world has turned around again"

"Every time I look around this place I see them scream but I hear no sound."

"If you can find me come and get me out of here"

"Purify my brain and hose down my soul"

"Just because I cannot see it doesn't mean I can't believe it"

"Locked away inside, never says a word, hope he hasn't died"

"Won't you stay with me one more day"

"He's underprivileged and abused, perhaps a little bit confused."

"Do you peek at magazines filled with doggies and leather queens"

"She could look in peoples eyes and read their minds"

"They don't know what life's about"

"Throw him in the ocean then, see if he is sad."

Hopping on the Blogwagon

Look at my list of buddy blogs! It keeps getting longer! This is a great thing though because it adds to the list of family/friends that I get to spy on. LOL Let's not get me started on the people that I only MARGINALLY know that I can read up on because they're in my blog network (linked by me through another's blog... like a chain).

If you haven't visited Boobs etc. I suggest you do. She's a frigging crack up! I can't remember exactly how I stumbled upon her blog, but I'm so glad I did.

When the hills of Los Angeles are burning

palm trees are candles in the bitter wind. Wow! If you've never been to California to experience the phenomenon known as Santa Ana winds, you're missing out. No, it's nothing compared to tornadoes or hurricanes, but it's our own wind storm misery (I like it though because lets not forget, I'm only happy when it rains). I also like it because I don't live in the brush like so many stupid people around here do. There is a rule of thumb here in LA/OC, if you build a house on a hill surrounded by brush, it isn't a question of IF your house will either be victim of a mudslide or brush fire, but WHEN it will become a victim. And yet, people still live in Malibu (as anyone who has ever visited will know).

So, not only are we having crazy winds (worse than any time that I can recently remember) but it's super dry. This equals massive fires around here. My apartment stunk like fire last night, and we lost power sometime while we slept too. Matthew's parents also had a casualty last night; their lime tree broke in half and blew over. :( No lime aid this summer!

Kelty is an enterprising young woman thats taking art to a new form. Luggage. Check out her website She's got some amazing designs for all her types of bags, but you can also create your own! Check them out, they're really cool!
