on the road
Posted Jan 17, 2003
Why all this frustration then? I'm reading 'On the Road' by Kerouac at the moment and it's amazing. Just the crazy exuberance of it makes me want to actually go out and live more. It's a great book for its power and feeling and holy madmen. Pity I can't write like that; my creative things are all dense and constricted and angrily tense. I'm gonna try to make a role playing game instead using RPG-maker-2K but it's a bit difficult to just jump into straight away. Oh well.

Though I suppose it's actually really sad that in this amazing world, the only way we can think of to convey our selves is through secondary references to other interpretations of the world. This truly is a post-modern world. I mean, I have plenty of experiences that people just 100 years ago would be astounded by, yet I still want to relate to people by finding some art whose appreciation we share.

In the (deliberate) absence of specific personal information in my space, I thought I'd show the music I like, which is probably the best indicator of my character anyway. Here is a random, whimsical selection of my 'albums of the moment':
Beth Gibbons + Rustin Man - out of season
"Lord knows how I adore life..."
Queens of the Stone Age - songs for the deaf
"Close your eyes and see the skies are falling..."
Van Morisson - astral weeks
"You breathe in, you breathe out, you breathe in you breathe out youbreatheinyoubreatheout..."
Sparklehorse - vivadixiesubmarinetransmissionplot
"A horse, a horse, my kingdom for a horse..."
The Flaming Lips - yoshimi battles the pink robots
"As the dawn began to break, I had to surrender..."
Mercury Rev - all is dream
"When they lived they loved complete, but in their tombs I hear them scream, spiders and flies live and die..."
