Now that you've learned something, I will tell you things.
I just watched the first episode of The Wire.
I ordered Papa John's and ate it with Jon.
Brian's not here.
I am writing a Classic Brian post.
Today, I night edited at the paper.
I could've done better.
I slept through my 9 a.m. class.
I felt bad about it.
I came home, and an episode of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia was on.
Before coming home, I had phone conversations with my brother and girlfriend.
She's Jenn Arms, by the way. If you didn't know I'm frankly surprised.
She visits me on the weekends quite a lot, which is very nice of her.
I am watching the second episode of The Wire.
I will talk to you guys later.
This post was arbitrary.
For more on that, you should check out my post from last week.
Lord knows it didn't get very many pageviews.

Nick - I Hate Happiness

I feel terrible and it's late. Quick post!

Most of the music I listen to is pretty depressing. I mean, we all know that The Mountain Goats are bleak. Two Gallants, as you saw last week, sound pretty forlorn all the time. In fact, I don't think I really like any happy music.

Maybe I like some vengefully happy music. Or some laugh-in-the-face-of-defeat music. But the truth is, I just don't like happy music. I find it emotionally draining. It makes me feel like I'm being forced to be happy, it all just feels so fake. The song didn't give me anything to be happy about, it just told me to get up and dance.

No, I prefer my remorseful and bitter and desolate music. It puts me at ease and relaxes me. It's weird, but happy music makes me upset and upset music makes me happy.
