the trick is to distract the brain  
Ordered tickets this weekend for Belle & Sebastian with the New Pornographers concert in March. Pretty damn exciting as they're two of my top favorites. I think one of the keys for me making it through my annual winter depression is to have something to look forward to, something to try and focus my attention on instead of self-hatred. It would be nice if writing could serve that purpose, but frankly that's the source of too much of the self-hatred. So, instead.... I will focus on thoughts of a great concert with two bands I love, on how I'm going to push my way through the crowd to get right up to the stage, and have a blast.

Listening to: Belle & Sebastian - "The Blues Are Still Blue"

Yup. Philly on the 3rd. DC on the 4th and 5th.

AAA! Must get tickets...

Actually, make that philly on the 4th, DC on the 5th and 6th.

I just checked and both DC shows are sold out, I would have to go up to Philly to see them. Ponder ponder.

Is AC Newman still with The New Pornographers? Or is he all solo now? (I really love his solo album!)

Neko and Bejar are in sort of an iffy state (recording but not touring), but I believe Newman is the constant. He's even got his niece in the band now.

Try focusing all your hate on others ... been working wonders for me.

Ha! Who are these "others" you speak of? I know I am reality's only occupant. You can't fool me....

That girl is real; I have no idea about you. She reminds me of my second American girlfriend; in every physical detail. How do you do it? Apple pie and Ice Cream, I guess, but that's an ASS.

Re: Reality
I have to agree. She looks like someone I once knew (too young for when I knew the cute miss...)

Currently, I'm hating all those folks who indulge in luscious, forbidden tobacco products. Did I spell 'tobacco' correctly?

Quitting the smokes, eh? Good luck. I'm trying to figure out if all the second hand smoke at your job makes that easier or much, much harder... probably the latter.

the girl in the picture looks so playful I just want to bite her.
