Nothing to say
It's odd. I really want to post something but I have nothing particularly pressing to communicate. I'm not hungover, I didn't have Gatorade at breakfast, I'm not pissed at any boys. I do however, think I have that problem where the ligaments in your heal are inflamed--plantar fasciatis? I won't try to spell it. I'm listening to Arcade Fire once again on iTunes and really warming up to them.
Okay, here's something. Similar to what I was saying yesterday about liking sad songs when I'm happy, I also like to listen to unrequited love songs when I am either happy in love or not really caring about the subject either way (the later rather than the former at present). Probably because unrequited love songs completely romanticize and beautify a feeling that is anything but. When my heart is broken and bleeding the last thing I ever want is to have my feelings glossed over. Thus, in states of heartbreak I tend to like music that sounds as raw as I feel. But today, because I have not been recently dumped and I am not in anything resembling a committed relationship (happily), songs of pining, heart-draining, soul shredding love are the order of the day. The best so far is Mazzy's Star's Fade Into You, which has to be one of the most exquisite musical declarations of love from afar to come out of the '90s. It was the anthem of many a wispy, introverted teenaged girl, and even to me at age 28, it speaks as eloquently today as it did then.
