Someone's got it in for me

It's been a long time since I listened to a song on repeat. 2 days ago I felt so miserable for Some Reason. I could barely move. I listened to Idiot Wind by Bob Dylan on repeat for over an hour. It was like the only thing I could do. The next morning I felt better but I did it again just to be sure.

Do you listen to songs on repeat? I used to do it a lot in junior high and high school. Now I have rediscovered the power. I'm not miserable now so maybe I'll listen to something else on repeat, like Fight For Your Right by the Beastie Boys. This whole post was maybe a ploy to show you this purikura.

I've made some of my best illustrations listening to Bobby D on repeat. When I'm in that mode I HAVE to listen to a song on repeat to get shit done.

So Ize thinkin', 'twas about this time last year I began swigging the Stoli and by 10pm I was G-O-N-E.

Twister, gin, Valley of the Dolls, Total Eclipse of the Heart, tonic, Spoons, limes, Dem Blues...

whitney - my friend kina wants to help me plan a beach party. it's birthday season but i feel so lazy so i will probably just see what happens. i might not throw a lot of parties but i'm sort of leaning toward celebrating on my own with a series of nights going out and getting into trouble in the party districts.

oh jer i miss you i miss you i miss you

i like writing to short playlists on repeat but i don't know why i haven't unleashed the power of one song at a time yet. wait, i did it with grapefruit moon by tom waits once! and it was like the best thing i've ever written.

i have been writing really creepy little poems lately maybe i'll send you some.
