"If the day and the night are such that you greet them with joy, and life emits a fragrance like flowers and sweet-scented herbs, is more elastic, more starry, more immortal- that is your success. All nature is your congratulation, and you have cause momentarily to bless yourself. The greatest gains and values are farthest from being appreciated. We easily come to doubt if they exist. We soon forget them. They are the highest reality. Perhaps the facts most astounding and most real are never communicated by man to man. The true harvest of my daily life is somewhat as intangible and indescribable as the tints of morning or evening. It is a little star-dust caught, a segment of the rainbow which I have clutched." - Henry David Thoreau
It's been so fucking long! It snowed hella lot, I almost PK'd on the ice, and I'm going back to see the cats tomorrow! (Or... today.) The Killer's Hot Fuss is probably the best album I heard in a long, long, long time.
I think this pair of earphones lasted the longest, but alas it had to go sometime. That's the circle of life. I shall have to procure another pair tomorrow somehow, thus beginning another life cycle. Maybe I should stop listening to music in bed.

I hate when a good song is sung by a terrible voice. For example, Rihanna's "Unfaithful." The lyrics and music are decent, but she sounds like:
(a) a bleating, tone-deaf lamb that is slowly dying from a slashed throat;
(b) a desperate, begging wino (and not the hilarious, Barney Gumble-like kind, or even like the pathetic, exonerated Abel Koontz);
(c) my caterwauling clarinet playing;
(d) a pregnant cow (which kinda ties in with c)
I stick around for a minute or so for the lyrics, but usually I can't take much more than that and I have to switch the radio station, lest I go deaf. Every time I hear the song I think, "Good Lord, this song would be 2x better if I sang it, and 1,000,000x better if someone talented did." I'm kidding about the first part, by the way. Probably only 0.25x.
Was NASA too busy to brush up her vocals or something? Even Paris Hilton's "Stars are Blind" is better. I mean, holy crap. Paris Hilton. 22:38
