Sometimes I Don't understand....

So I have led my life trying to be honest in all interactions. If I misspeak I apologize and acknowledge that fact.

I am puzzled at the fact that I can say what I mean and that I understand what someone is saying to me, and still be told that I don't understand and that I'm just blowing off this situation.

I will never understand how it is that one person can say exactly what they have in their head and still be accused of not getting it.

It's all part of the Great Cosmic Joke©, I'd imagine.

What is it about the human brain that prevents people from taking things at face value?

I understand that the World is a place full of dichotomy and duplicity, and that people may not always be forthcoming...but dang, why second guess everything anyone else says.

Especially your friends, the ones that have made it clear you will never hear a word from them that is not exactly what it means. lol.

Anyhoo, I will write about the GCJ© at a later time.


Today's recommendations:


Django Reinhardt - French Jazz guitarist from the 20's & 30's. Genius. His work is amazing, and when combined with Jazz Violinist Stephane Grapelli, Magic happens, serious.

the Shins - Indie rock at it's finest, most heartfelt, and most remarkable. Musically probably one of the finest bands of the last 10 years.


Godspell - Just watched it again for the first time in is dated, but the music is so awesome, and the style is fantastic. Truly a charming musical.

Big Trouble in Little China - Watched this the other day with my monkey and remembered how much I truly love this movie. Probably my favorite John Carpenter movie, it's fun to watch, which makes it a great film, IMHO. :)


Lamb, the Gospel according to Biff, Jesus's childhood pal - Currently reading. Just so funny. Having grown up Roman Catholic, I thought I'd heard it all...but so far this is really entertaining. I will write more on it when I'm done.


Electric Ape Power Hour - It's a couple of my real time friends talking about different stuff like they would at the cafe where we hang out...funny, real and entertaining. Check out episode 5...

OK, so maybe not daily. :D

So I didn't post yesterday. I think I was just being lazy.

I often wonder what people would say if I was as brutally honest as I really want to be. F'rinstance, I really don't care about exercise regimens in prep for anything. There is little less interesting to me than hearing about reps and times and the like.

I was chatting with my friends Megs about this. I have a lot of people as 'friends' on the various internet networking sites to which I belong. I was mentioning to her that a fuckton of those people I have no idea who they are; or I have a really passing familiarity of who they are. Megs said it's because of the job I was doing at the event we work...bunches of people who know who I am, but may not know me directly. I told her I also felt kind of guilty saying no to friend request.

Silly eh? 'Specially when you consider the mild disdain I have for many of those people.

So i decided that I'm going to gradually cull the herd, removing people who are not necessarily friends, but people i know in passing....I mean, they don't even communicate with me directly, you know? So, really, why bother having them on a Flist if all i'm ever going to read is what kind of cheese they are?

I'll get into detail about my disdain for some of these's actually kind of lame, but could make for interesting reading.

This next section will be up daily and have all sorts of different stuff recommended for no other reason than I feel like recommending it! :D

Today's recommendations:

MUSIC: Carlos Gardel - he was an Argentine composer/singer of Tangos. Amazing stuff.
Velocity Girl - great band from the 90's, and not grunge, post punk or whatever, just a good solid band, with a great lead singer.
