Soul Coughing

I'm not good at being sick. Can't stay in bed. Can't listen to music too long. Can't watch any serious stuff and anything random like HBO programming feels like a waste of time. I miss my smokes.

Villains United
is hurting my head and not because it's badly-written, no, if anything it's turning out to be my favorite of the Countdown to Infinite Crisis titles, but it is a lot of work. Making connections in my head, the OYL and 52 storylines tangled like wires. Any wires. They all get tangled up in small, impossibly tight knots sooner or later.


How will I keep my insides in?

Malapit na ako mahimatay.

Editors live in Japan. After the concert montage is an acoustic session. Have I said that I really, really like the band?

You burn like a bouncing cigarette on the road.

Obssessed. Collecting singles again. I'm so glad I found this.

Work it out

7:30 in the morning is downtime (coffee, comicbook) when THE lecture series starts. Actually, these are the good old days, the Big Brother (the TV show) bitching boxed and shipped like last year's files. Sometimes work, plain as a phone call, is comforting this way.

8:00 and the participants are working on last night's assignments. From a personal essay to a memo. Sounds tough but they seem to be enjoying the task in a quiet, absorbed kind of way. I guess, they too miss work, plain as penmanship.
