censored for your protection

February 24, 2009

censoredI don’t know if I’m back or not.  It’s still too early to tell.

What I will tell you is that I have been and will continue to remove some posts from I&I.  Cleaning house, if you will.  Based on no certain criteria other than I said so.

In other words, if there’s something you’d like to use to blackmail me in the future, and it’s still here, you better copy and paste quickly.

war and peace

November 21, 2008

I haven’t read anything in a really long time that has reached me as much as this did today. So, I thought I’d share.

war and peace
Charles Bukowski


to experience
real agony
is
something
hard
to write about,
impossible
to understand
while it
grips you;
you’re
frightened
out of
your
wits,
can’t sit
still,
move
or even
go
decently
insane.

and then
when your
composure
finally
returns
and you are
able to
evaluate
the
experience
it’s almost as
if it
had happened
to
somebody
else

because
look at
you
now:

calm
detached

say

cleaning your
fingernails

looking through
a
drawer
for
stamps

applying
polish
to your
shoes

or
paying the
electric
bill

life is
and is not
a
gentle
bore.

I can’t even begin to describe how much I love this video.  Thanks to Mr. Sheen himself for the youtube upload.

Song of the Day Project: Update

July 11, 2008

The experiment continues.. .

I’ve created a separate blog for my Song of the Day Project.

I think this will make it easier as far as formatting goes. It should also be easier to keep track of, for all you feed readers out there.

Here’s the link to the feed: http://songofthedayproject.wordpress.com/feed

I will still keep an updated link to each SOD in the upper left-hand corner here, and the link to the blog can be found in the “Ben’s Headphones” tab at the top of the page.

I need a nap.

Song of the Day Project

July 8, 2008

If you’ll please look to the upper left-hand corner of your screen… you’ll notice my Song of the Day. (Though, technically at this moment, it’s still yesterday’s song of the day.)

I’ve also added a new page which I’ll be updating with each song.

If you’d simply like to hear the song, you’ll be able to use the link here on the homepage. If you’d like to read a little bit about why I’ve chosen a particular song, feel free to visit the SOD page for at least a little detail… maybe.

This is a project I’ve been wanting to undertake for a while, and I’m sure we haven’t found the final format that will work best for song sharing, so please be patient with any changes that will come.

I am of course, again, pretending that you’ll actually be interested in what I’m listening to.
