whoa.

Holy shit! I just spent two minutes listening to two separate songs at the same time, and not realizing it. I was just like, “whoa, this is a really cool song”. Then I went to check on another song that was downloading, and realized with was playing at the same time! This is incredible, because it actually sounds like it’s supposed to be that way. So, if you’re curious, try playing “Sweet Dreams” by Marylin Manson and “Pretty Piece of Flesh” by Nine Inch Nails at the same times. It’s incredible.

I went for a walk across the fields near my house. In New Jersey I would go walking in the woods, but the lack of woods precludes such a possibility here. But, the corn fields do almost as well when they’re empty. I’ve never seen anything so empty. Looking in the right direction, there’s a set of power lines, a road with a couple cars, but other than that, basically nothing. It has this sort of hopeless beauty to it. It sounds depressing, but I find it rather exhilarating.

Today, on the way home, the bus was going abnormally fast. I didn’t think much of it, and was actually happy I would get home sooner. Then the driver just pulled over on the side of the road near Assembly Hall, and ran into this portapotty 20 feet from the street. The guy sitting a few seats in front of me turned and said, “I guess this explains the speed we were going.” I just smiled. The bus driver came back, and we proceeded on our reckless way, seeing as now he was running a little late, I suppose. The whole thing just kinda amused me.

background noise: “Dammit” blink-182 (because everyone is entitled to their own mainstream pop punk band)
