  So..wow..I actually might leave Texas after Christmas. How crazy and awesome would that be? I hope that everything works out. I really do. I really really really do.  
I miss my clean white linen and my fancy french cologne

  Well, I'm leaving California to come home to Texas on August 6th. It's so strange that I've been here all summer AND that I even missed Texas...I think it was home more than anything else that I missed. I've decided to highlight key moments of the summer that made it beautiful or educational or wild or mellow or all of those things. In the style of VH1 I'll do a countdown of some fashion.

L.A. I will miss you!!! It's been fun!! See you soon!!!

ACL 2006!!!!   
12:41am 16/07/2006
  Alright everyone. I'm going to be positive. Despite the invasion of yuppies in the last two years I've bought my ACL pass and it feels good. I only bought passes for Saturday and Sunday because I don't want to go up to $200.00 and catch my Dad's eye on my credit card receipt. The Friday pass will be bought later this summer if they don't sell out. If they do, hello e-bay. I'm THRILLED about seeing everyone and in the style of Ms. Natalie Joan Darrah, I will post my list of people to see below. Hope to see you all there! We can have a bonfire and throw in all the ridiculous non-locals that have ruined this beautiful celebration of music and all things ATXXX!

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers
The Flaming Lips
Nada Surf
Kings of Leon
The Shins
TV on the Radio
The Rocket Summer
Aimee Mann
The Raconteurs
The Stills
G.Love and Special Sauce
(If I get a Friday pass:)
Ted Leo and the Pharmicists
Cat Power
Wolf Parade
Theivery Corporation
Van Morrison

  Got no place to go
but there's a girl waiting for me down in Mexico
She's got a bottle of tequila, a bottle of gin
And if I bring a little music I can fit right in
We've got airplane rides
We got California drowning out the window side
We've got big black cars
And we've got stories how we slept with all the movie stars
I may take a holiday in Spain
Leave my wings behind me
Drink my worries down the drain
And fly away to somewhere new
Hop on my choo-choo
I'll be your engine driver in a bunny suit
If you dress me up in pink and white
We may be just a little fuzzy 'bout it later tonight
She's my angel
She's a little better than the one that used to be with me
Cause she liked to scream at me
Man, it's a miracle that she's not living up in a tree
I may take a holiday in Spain
Leave my wings behind me
Drive this little girl insane
And fly away to someone new
Everybody's gone
They left the television screaming that the radio's on
Someone stole my shoes
But there's a couple of bananas and a bottle of booze
Oh, well happy new year's baby
We could probably fix it if we clean it up all day
Or we could simply pack our bags
And catch a plane to Barcelona 'cause this city's a drag
I may take a holiday in Spain
Leave my wings behind me
Flush my worries down the drain
And fly away to somewhere new
Take a holiday in Spain
Leave my wings behind me
Drive this little girl insane
Fly away to someone new
Fresh song. I don't know.

  Everything goes and comes
A bicycle wheel
A hard, buckskin drum
I never knew about dirty things
I had quiet dreams
I rolled over in my bed
But it wasn't that pea pushing me from underneath
It was my pearl earring, I accidentaly slept in
The earrings that we met in
A tangled tumbleweed of soft blonde hair, your quiet stare
Somtimes it's like I wasn't there
It fits so long ago
That pearl earring poking me
And stirring up my darkest dreams
In the blackness of my room and pretty things
I am the lady lover, the writer, the mother
You're a traveling man
You take a stand
You feel my heart when you hold my hand
I know that some God protects you
I know that some God connects you
To me
But you don't know finer things
You don't know pearl earrings
And under your lips I found hillbilly country
I found out if you loved me
So, little pearl you're just a nuisance in the night
Something to take away my sleep tight
And bruise my back in time
I meant to show you all my life
We know how to make love stay.

  I will always love him so much. Always. When Tom Robbins asks 'Who knows how to make love stay?" we will be able to say that we do. The mystery in relationships is what makes love stay, and we will always be a mystery to each other, even if we know each other so well. I love him. I do.
I'll close with some lyrics...courtesy of Joni Mitchell.

I remember that time that you told me, you said
Love is touching souls
Surely you touched mine
Cause part of you pours out of me
In these lines from time to time

Oh you are in my blood like holy wine
And you taste so bitter but you taste so sweet
Oh I could drink a case of you
I could drink a case of you darling
Still I’d be on my feet
And still be on my feet

  I'm not the sort of person to fall in and wuickly out of love.
But to you I gave my affection right from the start.
I had a lover who loved me, how could I break such a heart.
Yet still I gave my affection.

Why do you come here, when you know I've got trouble enough.
Why do you call me when you know I can't answer the phone.
Make me cry when I don't want to.
Make someone else some kind of unknowing fool.
You make me stay when I should are you so strong or is it the weakness in me?

Willy and I saw Three Burials again after a delicious Canyon Cafe Extravaganza.
Tommorrow marks two days til' Spring Break begins.
I'm ready.

I know this was my claim when I discovered green apple gum, but this time it's the real thing. This evening I was exposed to the first film of the most badass triology of all time called "NIGHT WATCH" directed by Russian filmmaker TIMUR BEKMAMBETOV. This fantasy series is one of the most amazing displays of computer generated visual effects I HAVE EVER SEEN, and that's saying a lot considering the amout of film my eyes intake each year. Not only was the story original and also an underlying social commentary, but it was an action/fantasy film with...wait for it....here it comes...almost there...SUPERB ACTING. The frustrating thing these days are the films that have amazing stories and elements, but are screwed up by the actors that butcher the dialouge (SAW), however NIGHT WATCH is not like that at all. There were moments in the film where it was almost trying too hard to be badass, but it really badass and it didn't have to try. To prove how hardcore this movie was, the Lord of Darkness pulls out his spinal cord at the end of the movie to duel the main character, Anton. The cinematography is badass, because it's unusual and also adds to the slightly disturbing nature of the film. I strongly suggest this film to everyone that has 6 dollars in their pocket (the only theater it's playing at in San Antonio is the Bijou). A negative element to the film is that there are occasional moments when some of the effects are almost arbitrary, but overall they were amazing and also subtle. I really enjoyed that the 'evil' characters actually had a MOTIVE to be evil, instead of the screenwriter just explaining their evil nature as if it's a given. Some could say that the good vs. evil story is a tired one, but this is a different approach and it makes you think about how relative those two 'sides' actually are.


I saw another movie today called "THE THREE BURIELS OF MELQUIEDAS ESTRADA" directed by Texas local Tommy Lee Jones. Never in my life have I gone to a movie with very, very high expectations and left the theater feeling that the film actually SURPASSED my high expectations. The cast very much contributed to the outcome of the movie, and although the story was fairly simple, you felt it and the characters very deeply. I have never seen a movie like this before, and the best part of it really was the acting, cinematography, music, and dialouge. Considering that I feel the most important characteristics of a movie are dialouge, cinematography, acting, and music, this movie fufilled 4/4 of my requirments. Again I HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend it (except if you feel you can't watch a dead body being dragged across the desert on horseback-it's pretty sick).

Out of these films, 'Three Burials' was my favorite, but I have become a lifelong fan of 'Night Watch' and will succumb to it's hardcore awesomeness every day I am alive. If you want to spend a good 12 dollars wisely, get your ass to the Bijou where both these films are playing. Peeeeaaacee.

So today fucking sucked again.
I got rejected at University of Colorodo at Boulder, but I only applied because I wanted to ski my ass off all semester. Oh well, guess I'll actually have to go to class.
Can I just tell everyone how bloody much I love Mary J. Blige? Got her CD today and it's b.a.

I have so much shit to do, and that MACHIAVELLI ESSAY ALL YOU AP MOTHERFUCKERS, I'm not killing myself tonight to get it done. I'm taking a 90 on Monday. Like I'm going to stay up til' 3 am.

I feel like the guy in Office Space today when he's talking to the hypnotist (sp?) and he's describing how every day is worse than the one before and therefore every day is the worst day of his life. Seriously the only good things in my life are my Video Tech project, my health, and the love of my family.
Sorry for the bummer post. I'm going to watch "Moonstruck" to cheer me up and wish I was making out with a one hand Nicholas Cage.
Maybe I'm a wolf that's gonna chew my own foot off like Cher says.
