oh...hello!


i saw this picture and decided that the artist reminds me a lot of elle ruiz, aka the hello kitty art historian! and yes, it's on a tortilla.

welcome to 2008

new year, old song, same sentiment.

this is the beginning of year 3 of no contact. i still think of you, still waiting for me to forgive myself. i have found love twice in these past two years, and completely lost one. then i completely lost myself from which i'm just beginning to recover. this year is a new beginning. a breath of fresh air, the start of a new life.

saw david garza play the other day. he played one of his oldies, "discoball world." pretty much echoes what i think about you. i want nothing but the best for you, and i hope you are doing well. seems like he was where i was, but 10 years earlier. if you substitute (two thousand two) for "92," i could have tried to write this song.

every day i miss the you i used to know
before i let you down
before you let me go
we'd listen to the left side
of the radio

and you were so fine with your train track smile
i fell for your coffee eyes
your half and half
white lies
back around 92
i lost god
i found you
i found you

i found you dancin
with the blissed out brothers
and the dred locked white girls
spinnin like a discoball world yeah
with the extra virgins
and the gold teethed stoners
spinnin like a discoball world yeah

the flowers that we stole from san jacinto
they're in the vodka vases
by the window
i can't forget the date that you forgot me

when you kisses got so vicious

and i fell for your coffee eyes
your half and half
white lies
back around 92
i lost god
i found you
i found you

i found you dancin with the blissed out brothers
and the dred locked white girls
spinnin like a discoball world
yeah, yeah
with the extra virgins
and the laptop loners
spinnin like a disco ball world
yeah, yeah
alright

alright

can i dance with you baby?
can i dance with you? with you


but i didn't, and it's good to hear and i'm glad it's a fun dance number. so here's to you and me. happy new year.
