Boring Day

It was. I did nothing but lay around and watch Malcolm in the Middle all day. Also I'm sick for the first time this Winter. It just has to be over break, doesn't it? Blegh.

This Is a Sermon For the Vermin

A song to draw blood.
A finger in the dam trying to hold back the flood.
We are down, but we're still not out.
We struggle with faith in the face of doubt.
So is it a crime to think that we've found something more sublime?
That we're somehow more alive?
That we're not just busy dying?
No coincidence, it's by design.
Herded into a pen with the rest of the swine.
Born to shine, or born to stand in line?
You decide.
So you better step up to bat, before your dreams get hammered flat.
This is the sound!
Even when your ship has run aground.
Don't let bastards get you down.

Today I am a Political Blogger

So I've been asking myself a lot lately where I think music is going right now. I've noticed that really all the stuff I listen to was made at least 5 years ago. But I think the answer is that the music is going where we're going. People talk about music like it's some giant in the hillside. But the problem is that most of the music being made right now is shit. So if the music won't get better until the people get better, how do people get better? Well, in my understanding, people get better when they start to understand that they're valuable. And they not valuable because they got a whole lot of money, or because somebody thinks they're sexy or anything like that. The media's full of shit that makes the "not beautiful people" like us feel like shit. They're valuable because they were made by whatever the hell made the world. Whatever you think made the world. Whether it be Buddha, The Big Bang, Allah, Pharrell Williams, or whatever other god you pray to. Take your pick. And whether or not you recognize that value is one thing. But there's all kinds of governments and stuff trying to be god. They wanna put cameras and satellites and put tracking devices in us. They want to make us think they have an all-seeing eye or whatever. They want you to think Big Brother is watching. Don't buy into any of that stuff. Dont get phased out by any of that, none of the helicopters, the tv screens, the newscasters, the satellite dishes.. They're just wishing. They could never have that kind of control over us. Just make sure that when you're taking your pick, not to pick as your god. They didn't create you. They aren't god or anything close to it. They're not invincible. Fear not of men because men must die.

Today I Discovered the World's Best Convenient Store Chain

So today after we left the hippie funeral, we drove through Troy to find some place to eat. We ended up stopping at a Pilot Travel Center with an Arby's restaurant in it. It was probably the coolest gas station I've ever been to. Now if you've never heard of these places (which I hadn't until today for some reason), they're basically normal gas stations. Only ten times bigger and ten times awesomer. On their website, they put it this way,

Whether you're a professional driver, a business traveler, or a family on vacation, Pilot Travel Centers is your one stop for convenience. Fill up your vehicle, grab a bite to eat in one of our quick-service restaurants, unwind with a visit to our video game room, and stock up on your favorite road trip supplies all in an environment that is Fast, Friendly, and Clean.

But they're being modest. Every bit of this is true, but way cooler than they make it sound. Well, maybe the "clean" part is a bit of an exaggeration, but all the best things in this world are dirty. Still, these places are awesome. If truck driver smell didn't make me nauseous after about 10 minutes, I could live in one of these places.
