you know the song “forever young” by alphaville? the ’80’s “forever young” that needs a solo slow dance and a disco ball? well i made the mistake of buying it on itunes and now IT IS THE ONLY SONG THAT EXISTS! all the other songs are dead to me. it is the perfect soundtrack to every possible thing you can do: essay writing, bus riding, spinning around in circles, drawing, imagining day-to-day life with james franco, opening hospital bills. it just makes every moment of life seem more like a movie and therefore more important. here, for example, is an artistic rendering of my upcoming 25th birthday, inspired by alphaville:
yesterday i saw 3:10 to yuma again. if you haven’t seen it, you should. if you have, you should see it again. i think it might be better the second time. it’s pretty clear to me that ben wade is a post-modernist. after the movie my friend jim and i sat outside the under-construction jewish museum downtown, underneath a security camera, and drank beers we bought at whole foods. i only have a few days of reckless youth left so i have to do things like that. but only with beer from whole foods. and only in clean, well-lit areas.
here is something REALLY important that you wanted to know SO BADLY: i got 98% on my first grammar quiz. which means i destroyed it like a cougar attacking a poodle tied to a tree. if you have any grammar questions, i think you know where to turn your gaze.
which reminds me, as alphaville says, “it’s so hard to get old without a cause. i don’t want to perish like a fading horse. youth’s like diamonds in the sun and diamonds are forever.”
i think you know exactly what i’m talking about.
