I am angry all the time... and I don't know why.

"It's the sense of touch. In any real city, you walk, you know? You brush past people, people bump into you. In L.A., nobody touches you. We're always behind this metal and glass. I think we miss that touch so much, that we crash into each other, just so we can feel something."

In honor of the oscars I re-watched Crash tonight with Rome Girl and Fabulous Cousin. I think it's the 14th or 15th time I've watched the movie. Rome Girl makes fun of me because whenever she's out with her friends and I'm home alone bored I just watch the film again.

But, I'm like that. When I hear a song I like I listen to it 100 times until I feel like I "get" how they put it together. And when I see a painting I like I spend hours looking to find the brush strokes.

And this film is worth the time.

But, here are my questions:

1. Does Persian Girl know she's buying blanks?

2. Is it really snowing?

3. Is this a fable or a story or something else?


They Incorporate Little Girls

I was listening to Hole today and realized that the song "Awful" is almost exactly about what's been happening to Britney Spears lately. Maybe she and Courtney should hang out!

Swing low sweet cherry
Make it awful
Its your life, its your party, its so awful
Lets start a fire
Lets have riot! yeah its awful
It was punk
Yeah, it was perfect now its awful

They know how to break all the girls like you
And they rob the souls of the girls like you

Swing low, cherry, cherry
Yeah its awful
Hes drunk, he tastes
Like candy, hes so beautiful
Hes so deep like dirty water
God, hes awful
He says, oh, who's your daddy - he's so awful

And they royalty rate all the girls like you
And they sell it out to the girls like you
To incorporate little girls

Hey, run away with the light
Run away its divine
Lets run away, yeah, tonight and
Well steal the light of the world

Swing low, sweet cherry, yeah, its awful
Youre ripe for the picking, its so awful
Youve got your youth
Dont waste your money
Yeah its awful
I was punk!
Now Im just stupid!
Im so awful

Oh, just shut up youre only 16

If the world is so wrong
Yeah you can break them all
With one song
If the world is so wrong yeah you can take it on
With one song

Swing low sweet cherry
Make it awful
They bought it all, just build a new one,
Make it beautiful...yeah </a>
