you had a cd player in your car and you would get a new cd and put it in there and because you were too lazy to drag out your cd case and have to pick a new cd and change it, it just got left in there for a month, and consequently that music became the soundtrack to that month and when you listen to it now, marked sense memories rush up on you and you're over-run with all the thoughts and emotions and successes and failures that occured to you during that 4 brief weeks 5 years ago.

this may be one of the last albums that was that in my poor accord way back when. fiberglass resin fumes and foam dust, sneak-parking at the wilk, that girl who turned out not worth the effort, no matter how much she looked like kristen dunst, wind and leaves and dun puddles.

it's a shame about computers sometimes.

i read in a book once about a guy who saw a camera crew filming on his street and he slowly came to realize that they were making the movie of his own life. a series of events recently has led me to wonder if this thing is happening to me now too. like how did you know when to pick me up if i told you the wrong time? did you know that i was having an argument with you in my head when you crossed the street right in front of my car? did you turn the hot water off in my house to add dramatic effect to the otherwise stagnating plot of my life-film?

or maybe it's all jesus? i'm beginning to think my decision to take on a moral relativist view of the world might as well be a predetermined plot twist.
