Oo...

Ahh...

I tried some practice physics test my teacher gave us...and I didn't know pretty much everything on one of em. it was about electrical stuff that i don't remember learning. cos i probably didn.t but eh, what can ye do! :) I'll just keep smiling when I fail, it'll be fun.

I didn't take a nap today, or watch any TV, yet I still ended up doing my homework at 9 PM. It took me a really long time to figure out how to play Private Jinx. If you're bored, try and play it. It's sucha nice song, yeah:

your head in the clouds, your heart on your sleeve, a black soul that sings like your private jinx


verse:

the bitter taste you'll leave behind, will always be your only crime

& now you're close enough to be within reach,

so you'll hang on to this like a leach


chorus:

with your head in the clouds, your heart on your sleeve

& a black soul that sings like your private jinx

(probably isn't totally correct, but sounds good enough to me. by now your fingers should be digging into the strings of your guitar and turning bloody)

so you're convinced yourself, & the devil as well

you don't need any time to dwell cause


(same stuff as verse)

every day's another scar on you...


chorus:

with your head in the clouds, your heart on your sleeve

& a black soul that sings like your private jinx

(listen to the song a million times and you'll see how everything fits...or doesn't fit)



I found this amazing article about Libido...Even has a daughter! And he's incredibly normal. I mean...that's good. Actually, even though part of me wanted to know basic stuff about him, I kind of don't because in a way I just want to listen to his music and that's it. Just that. I'd like to be blind to everything else unlike most of the other musicians I like (i don't know much about electronic artists I like...I'm not as curious I guess). But now it's too late. I'm being sucked into something. Help. I need it. *burp*

This made me laugh. Does that make me insane?
