i remember you well in the chelsea hotel. you were famous, your heart was a legend. you told me again you preferred handsome men, but for me you would make an exception.
and clenching your fist for the ones like us who are oppressed by figures of beauty, you fixed yourself, you said "well, never mind, we are ugly but we have the music."
too fucking real.
i say the same thing about dunbar from catch-22 by the way.
longish story about nothing
you know that berenstain/berenstein bears conspiracy theory? i'm experiencing something similar tonight but for real.
around 12 years ago i was in college and listening to a lot of Josh Woodward because his music is nice and calming and free. i still have those files i downloaded at the time.
tonight i was listening to his first album again and noticed that one of the tracks seems a bit glitched. it's exactly 4 minutes long, but the last 30 seconds are silent except for a brief moment at the very end which sounds like a distorted clip of the first chord for the following track.
it's been a long time so i don't remember if that was always there or if the file got corrupted at some point. i went to his website and checked the song there and it's shorter by around 10 seconds. still has 20 seconds of silence at the end but no glitch sound.
but then i listened to the whole file and found that two lines of the lyrics are different! the music sounds otherwise the same. i looked it up on archive.org and that has the "new" version too.
did he just swap with a new take and not note it anywhere? or are my hard drive and i from a different timeline where the lyrics were different? at least the new lyric is better.
thanks for reading my true story. i didn't make it up.
and now, without thinking, i drained my spaghetti in that same sink. i now see that it was foolish to be concerned about the cold when the heat was a much more immediate danger.
sometime last year i got a few cans of a local brewer's one-time-only-special bourbon barrel aged stout. it was nice.
today i noticed i still had a can so i opened it up and i'm not sure if it's still good. it tastes maybe a little weird but i don't remember if that's how it was supposed to be. it's not BAD, just i dunno.
so i'm just going to keep sipping it here until i make up my mind on it. if i get all the way through, we'll say it's good.
and if i'm dead in the morning, you know what did it.
a week or so ago the everdrive gb cried that the battery was dead and wiped my save. it started working again right after but i lost a couple weeks of progress.
today it is crying again. guess i just have to get a new battery. the cart is only six months old so unless they shipped an old battery these things don't last long at all.
at least i was more cautious this time so i only lost a day of progress.
"Could it be that Shinji's true synchronization wasn't zero, but the closest value to zero?"
"Yes, his sync rate is... infinite."
ah. that's how that works. i see. very good. makes perfect sense.
the story so far:
everyone: shinji get in the eva we need you.
shinji: no i won't do it ever again because bad stuff always happens.
[shinji gets in the eva anyway; bad stuff happens]
everyone: hm yeah you should definitely never pilot an eva again. try to avoid doing that.
shinji: i'm going to get in the eva guys but don't worry it'll be different this time.
[shinji gets in the eva; it's not different]
