Radiohead Week

I didn't get to write on this thing last night cos my
computer wasn't turning on. It was pissing me off so much..
I hate my computer.. Dad says were getting a new one soon..
but he's been saying that for months! hurry up father!
heheh... hmmm this week I have decided to have a very
Radioheady sort of week, and listen to almost only
Radiohead. They are the coolest band in the world. I love
them so much. Yeah I've been listening to stuff from their
new album which is coming out in June, and yeah their new
album is very very very cool. Umm but yeah so I am
listening to Radiohead a lot. I am listening to a live
version if "Karma Police" at the moment, just before that I
was listening to "Creep" their first single from 10 years
ago now. That song is so damn good. The lyrics are so damn
good. Any guy who has ever felt inadequate with himself can
relate to that song. It's very much a song that a guy would
understand better than a girl i think... not that a girl
couldn't understand it as well.. I just think it would be
easier for a guy to relate to it. Hmmmm yesterday seemed to
go for ages. Drama class was alright. We formed the groups
for our performance assessment. My group is pretty cool. We
have some cool thoughts on what we're gonna do. It's not
due for like 6 weeks though so we have a fair ammount of
time i'd say. Yes well I watched "Cabaret" last night on
video. Hmm it is a very very good musical.. probably one of
the most emotionally real musicals I've ever seen... I
loved it becasue it wasn't as much about the Utopian values
of most musicals like "Singin' in the rain" or "Mary
Poppins", it was more about the realities of the world. and
how Music can be at times an escape from real life. But
really that escape never lasts and real life falls
through... I really enjoyed it, like I was just on the edge
of my seat in a lot of scenes just with this full
emotionally involved look on my face really tottally
absorbed by the drama. Yeah.. hmm.. I was gonna go see
Cabaret with Gab when we were together.. I was a little bit
sad last night about how I wasn't going to see it anymore.
I was gonna bye the tickets like the week before the day
she broke up with me. I ended up spending all the money on
things and not getting the tickets. Hmmm I kinds wish I did
by the tickets and that we still went as friends cos it
would have been so damn cool. And the cuttingest thing
about it is that it is this current production was directed
by Sam Mendes, who made my favourite movie "American
Beauty" Oh man.. damn it, now I am sad that I didn't get to
see it... I really missed out. Haha.. what would be really
cool would be if when I moved to England it was showing on
the west end. Oh I hope so! yeah man I really hope this
whole 6 months in England works out. I looked into it a bit
yesterday at uni. I was originally gonna go to Oxford...
both cos when i was a kid I always wanted to study there..
like in my mind Oxford was like where magic and Dragons
came from.. like a real magical place.. but yeah there are
like no performance art courses there, but there are some
very cool ones in London.. so If I go I will go there. Hmm
but I don't know if my Uni's student exchange program works
through those campuses.. so i'll have to look into it a lot
more... Hmmm.. yes well this is really my entry for
yesterday cos of my busted computer.. but I will write in
here later about what happened today. Hmm it's afternoon
already but I just woke up.. anyways here's the lyrics
to "Creep" they are beaut!

* * *

Creep

When you were here before,
couldn't look you in the eye.
You're just like an angel,
your skin makes me cry.
You float like a feather,
in a beautiful world
I wish I was special,
you're so fucking special.

But I'm a creep, I'm a weirdo.
What the hell am I doing here?
I don't belong here.

I don't care if it hurts,
I want to have control.
I want a perfect body,
I want a perfect soul.
I want you to notice,
when I'm not around.
You're so fucking special,
I wish I was special.

But I'm a creep, I'm a weirdo.
What the hell am I doing here?.
I don't belong here

She's running out the door,
she's running,
she run, run, run, run, run.

Whatever makes you happy,
whatever you want.
You're so fucking special,
I wish I was special,

but I'm a creep, I'm a weirdo.
What the hell am I doing here?
I don't belong here,
I don't belong here.

- (Thom Yorke, Pablo Honey, 1993)

Yaya! Memories.. ahhh "True Love Waits" just came on. I
love this song... Ahhh... very nice... actually this song
fully reminds me of good ol' Gabrielle... I can remember
her telling me to download it ages ago..like maybe a year
ago or something... awww... the lyrics are strange but
beautiful.. I think the music is what makes them
beautiful... but hey... just for the hell of it I'm gonna
post the lyrics to this song too...

* * *

True Love Waits

I'll drown my beliefs
To have you be in peace
I'll dress like your niece
To wash your swollen feet

Just don't leave
Don't leave

I'm not living
I'm just killing time
Your tiny hands
Your crazy kitten smile

Just don't leave
Don't leave

And true love waits
In haunted attics
And true love lives
On lollipops and crisps

Just don't leave
Don't leave

- (Thom Yorke, I Might Be Wrong, 2001)
