superinframan:

drawing-bored:

that was a weird day. like, we’d never show a murder over and over again on television, all day. but, when it’s something like the challenger explosion or 9-11 or the columbia breakup, they show us footage of people dying as many times as we’re willing to watch. and i’m not sure what the difference is.

I wonder if it’s because so many of us watched it live? I was just barely old enough to be in school, and they wheeled in the AV cart so we could watch the shuttle launch. It was an event.

My teacher didn’t know what to say to us when it exploded. We weren’t quite sure what to think of it either.

Cold War, Reagan, all that invincible bravado against the Russians. And then our technological achievement became this horrific reminder of mortality and hubris.

I love them.

When I’m all alone on my own by my lonesome
And there ain’t a single ‘nother soul around
I wanna dig into my guitar bend a blues riff that hangs
Over everything
When I’m by myself and it’s daytime cuz down-under
Or wherever it is I live when it’s evening
You know I speed-read the morning news
And come up with my own little song also
Too
When I step outside to a beautiful morning
Where the trees are all waggin’, my hair-flag waving
The scenery ragin’, my life cascading, and the smog hangs
Over everything
When I’m outside in a real good mood
You could almost forget bout all the other things
Like a big old ominous cloud in my periphery
Don’t wanna talk about it
Simultaneous I shout it
When I was young I liked to hear music blarin’
And I wasn’t carin to neuter my jams with earplugs
But these days I inhabitate a high-pitched ring over things
So these days I plug em up
When I’m strugglin with my songs I do the same thing too
And then I crunch em up in headphones, cause why wouldn’t you?
You could say I hear you on several levels at high decibels
Over everything
When I’m all alone on my own by myself
And there and another single one around
I wanna dig into my guitar, bend a blues riff that hangs
Over everything

Carolyn’s Fingers – Cocteau Twins

When he said, ‘You are full of love’
She fell down into this dirty mess
Some people see me laugh and tell us,
‘It’s wrong to make fun of me’

She fell down into this mess
(Even then they don’t give)
(Try, try to fall)
She fell down and he’s so sick of it all
And of me

This part not out of her saw fit to drop
Whispers might prove it all
(You’re just closer to me when you fall, but you broke)
This would prove it all
(You just closer to me, but you broke)
This would prove it all
Sleep now
You susur, try to talk
Reach out for that hand

Reach out for that hand
(And even they don’t give any more)
(Try, try to fall)
Even then they don’t give
(Try, try to fall)
You just closer to me at the fall
But you don’t want, want me hand
You’re just closer to me
But you don’t want, want my hand

Yo La Tengo – Don’t Have to Be So Sad

You and me were at some goldfish pond
And I, I was tagging along for the ride
All the big-mouthed fish really made us laugh

And while I stood still, I felt a chill
I thought that maybe you did too
I wanted to feel that way forever

And that’s why if you’re looking at me, I’ll try
To be what you want to see, and if I’m
If I’m ever that lucky
You won’t have to be so, you won’t have to be so sad

You won’t have to be so sad

Last night I was trying to read in bed
I got to watching you sleep instead
Even when I got tired, I couldn’t stop

Because I love you so
And I pray you know
But I’m not much for praying
I knew I couldn’t say that without making a joke

And that’s why if you’re looking at me, I’ll try
To be what you want to see, and if I’m
If I’m ever that lucky
You won’t have to be so, you won’t have to be so sad

You won’t have to be so sad

Yeah, that’s why if you’re looking at me, I’ll try
To be what you want to see, and if I’m
If I’m ever that lucky
You won’t have to be so, you won’t have to be so sad

You won’t have to be so sad
You won’t have to be so sad

outer space / freezepop

Alone in the moonlight
Heading for nowhere
Gone is the solar glare
Don’t follow me here tonight

Run away, far away
Run away, fly away

Needing to find my place
Something just feels wrong
Knowing I dont belong
Escaping to outer space

Run away, far away
Run away, fly away

Unafraid
Every mile
You fade
There are no delays
I won’t look back [4x]
Run away, far away
Run away, fly away

Oh so quiet here
Caught in the milkyway
Bound by the cosmic ray
I could just disappear

Time will slow
No more earth below
Another day to go
I won’t look back [4x]
Run away, far away
Run away, fly away

Alone in the moonlight
Heading for nowhere
Gone is the solar glare
Don’t follow me here tonight
Don’t follow me here tonight
Don’t follow me here tonight
