This is an archive of journals from late high school. A bit like a diary, this was a personal fork off of my senior project at the time to build a fully functioning blog site that people could sign up for, manage, and etc. I managed to recover all the posts, but I apparently forgot to back up the comments and attached music tables before repurposing my personal server, so those are mostly gone. This is a little embarrassing but not as awful as my old Geocities/tcn.heathenkitties.net early high school journals.

Caught in the high beams

Atmosphere - "Godlovesugly" 3:50
Once in a while I get in a rap mood. I don't know why or how, it's kind of random, but it happens. I do listen to hip hoppish IDM like Cex and Prefuse 73 fairly often. But yeah. It's kind of a jump.

But this is good stuff!

Atmosphere--I've loved his work for years, and I downloaded his albums over the winter, but never listened to them wholly. I'm listening to God Loves Ugly now and it's not bad. But the title track, Godlovesugly... I cannot get over that last part of the song. His rhymes and imagery are mesmerizing.

why scream, when you can lose yourself inside the wide-screen
let life be a bowl of melted ice cream
or be the deer thats caught in my high beams
im rollin with the lights on, scared stiff
reality is just too much to bear with
paranoid, walkin around careless
no wonder youre in love with your therapist
go to sleep my little time bomb

Just noticed an interesting connection though--I tend to love songs that mention going to sleep. I was obsessed with APC's song Pet back in my young teen days, where Maynard whispers "Go back to sleep." I still have a deep fondness for the Theivery Corporation's song "Until the Morning" where Emiliana Torrini croons "Sleep on tight..."
