• I've considered it for a while...

    Jun 30 2006, 9h14

    And I've decided: a new account was in order.

    Not because I'm dissatisfied with my stats or anything, but truth said... I cringe at my username. The songs alluded to; it's disturbing.

    So I was Borders a few days ago.

    I decided to check if any Mogwai-wares of interest were in stock.

    I approached the 'M' rack with nonchalant indifference.

    As I questioned how redundant any adjectives used to describe said activity were, I suddenly stopped.

    For there, staring right at me, was a copy of You Are There.

    I was shocked. I then bought it.

    Now, I've never been the biggest Mono fan.

    But the point of this journal was to say, "The album is a lot better than I remember it being."

    Someone recommend me the most wildly technical band they know.

    I'll give you money.

    Except not.

    I mean, there's nothing too spectacular about the song, from a musical standpoint.

    But. Well, I could easily have it on repeat for hours, me just sitting here.

    Seriously, crank it up, and go sit/lay down somwhere and stare at nothing in particular.

    It somehow brings a sort of surreal calm. Indescribable.

    Well, yeah.

    God Is An Astronaut is cool.

    EDIT: You know, I sort of wrote this journal, expecting some sort of comments of agreement, or something.

    Yeah, ridiculous, I know.

    So disregard this journal's existence.
