In a White Room

It's so interesting. Simply everything. Everything is interesting. Everything has a story, everybody has a voice, and put two and two together and you essentially get uniqueness. It's really neat.

Allow to me to attempt to make sense: Somehow we all manage to associate every little thing in our lives with ourselves in one way or another. This is what I've come to realize leads us to imagination. I see water and I think of life. I consider myself lively and in that sense if ever I were to write, say, a story or a song or a poem and used water chances are high I would personify it with pieces of myself.

I've been studying lyrics lately and began to wonder just how much of somebody's personality you could pick out of a song. I know with the lyrics I write I usually end up pouring more of myself into the song than I mean. Almost to a point of exaggeration. And then I'll share the song with the band and try my best to hope nobody can see in between lines. We (we being the songwriters, poets, and speakers of the world...anyone not afraid to speak their mind) often are the victims of playing the role of the suspect. We try to say "Yes I am this," but don't really try to say it. Rather we often may find it more intriguing to sort of tease it out of our audience. In this sense there can even be found the connection of one person with yourself. How do they translate you with it being you they're translating?

The one song that has baffled me for some days is Cream's White Room. Knowing their lyricist as I do I simply refuse to believe the song is honestly and simply about a train station. I can tell by the depth there is something beneath that surface but dammit I can't figure it out. It's near maddening.

Emotion, time, philosophy, religion, all such incredible drives and to the writer they're also purpose. In a world where life seems purposeless I suppose the writer has the upper hand. Whereas the common man or the politician can lead out their lives and die if there really is a undying soul perhaps we take with it our philosophies? And in that same thought maybe the writer has a chance at still carrying on life after death whether there is a heaven or not.

These are my thoughts and yes I have much too much time to think. Maybe someday, when we're all dead, I'll be able to carry them all alongside me. It's kind of pretty don't ya think?

Why everyone should at least lurk on the DToid forums.

I Review Them In Stereo:
Joanna Newsom's Have One On Me
Two Door Cinema Club's Tourist History
Tunng's ...And Then We Saw Land

Things people say I like:

I can't fully enjoy the PS3 without an ample supply of hookers and blow. How does that figure into your Reaganomics? - MegaStryker

I can't explain myself, I'm afraid, Sir, because I'm not myself you see. - Alice from Alice in Wonderland; the greatest book ever written

Best thing about those cards are how bad the pun/product writing is. "I only have Snake Eyes for you." "You've Duke'd it out with my heart and now I'm yours to command." "I have a Cobra Commander in my pants." - sheppy

How to read a review without being pissed off:
1. Decide prematurely whether the game is balls, or the second coming of flying spaghetti monster.
2. Go to www.metacritic.com and search for the game.
3. If flying spaghetti monster, click on first link. If balls, scroll to the end and click on the last link.
4. You should now be sitting and staring at a review you agree with.
5. Complement reviewer on such a well thought out and non biased review.

That's because WWI was a pretty low-budget project, it was mostly about the story of soldiers in trenches and lay-low tactics, the sequel WWII, was really the bomb, with millions of dollars invested on it and top notch action sequences. - adrianboy

I think booze is a pretty cool guy. eh keeps me from doing the recaps on time and doesn't afraid of anything. - Pendleton21

Everyone else tolerates it because you're an attractive woman, I find that quite shallow. - Mousse420

*NOTE: I like that quote because at least I know if everyone is going to assume I'm female at least I'm attractive. Call me.

I was able to cause my child to fall into a well of depression after shattering his tailbone by horribly failing the see-saw QTE at the park three times in a row. Then I tried to cheer him up by buying him candy, but picked the one flavor he didn't like. It was like reliving my own childhood.

Xzyliac: @punisher898 Score! I wonder if Cyndi Lauper and Lady GaGa hang out together. #ponders
punisher898 (aka Occams Electric Toothbrush): @Xzyliac: I bet if they do its like the best Folger's coffee commercial ever.

That's awesome. Hollywood writers are the best! I had one make me an iced latte the other day. It was totally adequate!

Uno just brings out the animals in all of us. It's just too sexy of a game.

Xzyliac, shut up, you\'re not cool.
-Fear No Darkness

*NOTE: I would like to note that later on I explained myself to Fear No Darkness and he totally sent me an apologetic PM. He's a classy fella whom I'd love to share a drink with sometime.

If you've never had promiscuous thoughts about a Dreamcast then you're not a gamer.
