Stranger than most.

What do you think about leaping off a building?
I don't think about leaping off a building.
Yes you do.
No. I try to think of nice things.
 Everyone thinks about leaping off a building. Everyone.
Well, I certainly don't think about thinking about leaping off a building. 
They say--I read this in this fantastically depressing book--that when you jump from a building, it's rarely the impact that actually kills you.
Well, I'm sure it doesn't help. 
There's a . . . There's a photograph in it, a photograph, from the L.A. Times around forty years ago. Called "The Leaper". It's old but, it's beautiful. From above the corpse of a woman who had just leapt to her death. There's, there's blood around her head . . . like a halo. And her leg is  . . . buckled underneath her. And her arm has snapped like a twig. But her face is so serene. So at peace. And I think it's because when she died . . . she could feel the wind against her face.

"I write to remember."

I know you so well,
even used to your feet smell.
Riding, sighting, biding, gliding,
so accustomed to all the fighting.
Now we poke fun and slightly fight,
taking the mind games to a new height.
We pick each others' scabs just to watch each other bleed.

Blah blah blah Pauly D's blowout is super silly but at
least he has the greatest personality on the real-
ity. I give up on rhyming
when I do not have the timing.
It keeps me restricted when I want to run free.
I don't wear these feathers to sit in a cage.
I wear them to fly off this damn page.

I fall in love everyday.

I am in love. This beautiful 4 year old knows what Jesse Jackson is talking about as she passionately bangs on her chest. We are all somebody special.

Good music is good music

Presenting Loverboy: Part 5 from Brett Dennen on Vimeo.

"Music is a time machine, a camera that makes moments last forever. In an instant you could hear a note or two notes and it could take you back to whatever memory you associate with that song, whatever you were going through the first time you heard it or whenever that song had an impact on your life."- Brett Dennen
