last call. he was sick of it all.

now, the calitexican has been debating with herself on whether or not she should say something about the rumors surrounding owen wilson. as 1/2 of the great anderson/wilson writing team, she has an extreme amount of respect for his writing abilities. she does, of course, have a sense of humor, but she does not respect his comedic talents as much as she respects his brain.

on the way to work this morning, the calitexican was listening to elliott smith, yet another favorite of the calitexican's. she kept thinking about how elliott supposedly committed suicide, and was prominently featured in the suicide scene in the royal tenenbaums. her heart ached as she thought about the turmoil one must have to be in in order to attempt such a drastic act.

in particular, she thought that elliott may know a thing or two about depression and/or suicide. so she was listening to the below song and thinking about owen wilson:

a passing feeling (from a basement on a hill. 2003)

everything is gone but the echo of the burst of a shell
and i'm stuck here waiting for a passing feeling
in the city i built up and blew to hell
i'm stuck here waiting for a passing feeling
still i sinned all the time
my request for relief
down the dead power lines
though i'm beyond belief
in the help i require
just to exist at all
took a long time to stand
took an hour to fall.
i'm stuck here waiting for a passing feeling
stuck here waiting for a passing feeling

still i sinned all the time
my request for relief
down the dead power lines
though i'm beyond belief
in the help i require
just to exist at all
took a long time to stand
took an hour to fall

although she knows she doesn't know the wilson family personally, her heart and thoughts go out to them right now...
