never let down - andrew w.k.

now you're thinking, no no that is ridiculous. well, you are right it is, but can you say you've never let a friend down? that you haven't written them off when they've taken a bad turn? i certainly can't. so it's ridiculous, yes, but that's the kind of friend i want to have, and saying so makes me want to be that kind of friend to mine. fend-mencing.

I'm not sure what the lyrics say, but I think this song is probably about The Joker.

andrew w.k. - i get wet

an example of the the hard of his rock and maybe what i first liked. this particularly on my running mix is phenomenal. as soon as i hear those synth horns, i know that it is time to

and a cover of i ran across by jon sebastian. here, wif wife.

i'm always skeptical of hero worship. i think people use it as a crutch to get out of building their own identities. i am a fan of this musician or writer or film director, so you may take the attributes that i admire of them and please apply them to me. thank you.

that said, i'm a pretty silly fan of andrew w.k.

guy is a unabashed force of positivity and that's something i value and aspire to emulate (i'm rubbish at it). i lost track after i get wet and the wolf went by unnoticed by me. i picked up the thread again during his rash of motivational speaking dates and found his philosophical ramblings sound a lot like my philosophical ramblings, reading the same bullsh, buber, maslow, rogers, etc. since then i've padded the back-catalogue and am following close. i'm on the ship, wherever she sails.

i'll be doing a string of songs from him coming up, but i chose this one today to puzzle in with hoon's love theme and because it could be about a girl who lives in my building.

let's go on a date - andrew w.k.
