I can fly!

Well, that didn't last. ~s~

I'll go back to sleep sometime soon, though. I think my subconscious prodded me awake in order to make me come down and check my e-mail. Heh.

Anyway, enough Things. I suppose it's time to try and get some more sleep.

Meep.

Someone on zoo_music_girl's journal mentioned a Tori Amos cover version of something, and it reminded me that 'Rattlesnakes', from her 'Strange Little Girls' album, is one of my favourite songs. But I didn't know who did the original. zoo_music_girl kindly informed me it was the great Lloyd Cole and the Commotions, so I've just kicked Kazaa into downloading it for me. I'm on dialup, so it's only about halfway through. ~s~ But.

Oh god, it's beautiful. I love Lloyd Cole himself, but the only two songs of his/theirs I've heard before are 'Lost Weekend' (which is great, but not beautiful) and 'Perfect Skin' (which wins for its lyrics, rather than its music, I think). But this is *beautiful*. I mean, it had to be fairly wonderful because the cover is so glorious, but...

It's got guitars in it, and they're making me cry.

Meep.

    Actually, 'Living In Neon', Spray - also wonderful.

Ahem. Don't tell anyone this, but...

Today I feel really quite confident within myself. I don't know quite what's happened to engender this, but it's kind of nice.

I've looked in the mirror a couple of times today and been happy with what I saw, and I've had enough confidence to assume that something lovely that wildeabandon said was about me, and I'm aware that there are people out there who love me and want to see me. It's bizarre, but as I said, it's kind of nice.

It's all your fault, you know.

Lyrics

"Never been a fashion victim, "the scene" - it's not my bag
Till one day I woke up and found myself a walking chainstore ad
When I bleed, I bleed in logos spread across my arms and legs
Don't think me fraudulent, I found a kitemark on my neck
Christ, it's fucking painful, but at least it saves some cash
And it's worth it - all this torment - for a fashionable rash..."


I know it's not genius, but I still like it. Especially the last two lines. From 'Fashion Stigmata' by Spray.
