“If it takes shit to make bliss, then I feel pretty blissfully. If life's not beautiful without the pain, well I'd rather never ever even see beauty again. Well as life gets longer, awful feels softer. And it feels pretty soft to me.” -Modest Mouse “The View”
I like the new CD. It's a different sound, but still cool. I also like that lyric, and song lyrics in general. I feel silly for spouting them so often. Perhaps if I combined them into art… maybe I should just come up with my own material.
I don't even really agree with that lyric, I just like the way it sounds. In Vanilla Sky Jason Lee's character says something to the effect of “the sweet isn't as sweet without the sour.” I agree. Huzzah for pain! We'll see beauty in time.
Well, not that there's pain now. This is just for future reference, and something I can cross apply to the past.
Yesterday during a class of doom I tried to update this only to lose the entry. Curse the intarweb, curse it to heck*!
Let us all sit down and do paint by numbers together. It will be a joyous communion.
