how is it that portable cd players seem to keep getting smaller and smaller? and what's with all that stabilization nonsense? people jog with cd players these days! years ago a high school friend and i went to the local record store in our small town in his 1970's trans-am or camaro. he'd updated the tape deck with a portable cd player - i think the cd player had cost him a few hundred dollars. at the store he bought the new sonic youth, "dirty." it was one of the special limited edition ones with the "dirty" pictures. we were so bad-ass in those days, right?
i was reading a lot of 'rolling stone.' and i knew i was too old to be reading the magazine, but i couldn't help it. i liked peter travers - he turned me on to hal hartley's film, trust. it took me years to see trust. but peter travers is the one who pointed the way.
sometimes i think about having children and when i think about that i have to consider the ages to which i'd introduce them to rolling stone magazine and sonic youth. would i even do that? can you force things like that down your kids' throats?
sometimes i wonder if i'm becoming a libertarian? politics has always been such a tough thing for me to figure out. i do like this new keyboard i'm using, though. all the keys work! it makes for a much happier me.
from cd players to talking about myself. i sure am probing the depths of my thoughts and existence tonight. existence. makes me think of that david cronenberg (sp?) movie - eXistenZ. i didn't see crash. i should make that attempt. sex and cars. cars and sex. i passed on seeing "ocean's eleven" this morning. i had errands.
last night i did my ERRANDS dance for my roommates. i'd had one beer! one beer and i was dancing! what has gotten into me?
