Exits to freeways twisted like knots on the fingers; jewels cleaving skin between breasts.
Your Cadillac breathes four hundred horses over blue lines you are going to Reseda to make love to a model from Ohio whose real name you don't know
You spin like the cadillac was overturning down a cliff on television and the radio is on - and the radioman is speaking - and the radioman says: women were a curse, so men built Paramount studios and men built Columbia studios and men built Los Angeles
it is 5 am and you are listening to Los Angeles
And the radioman says it is a beautiful night out there! And the radioman says Rock and Roll lives! And the radioman says it is a beautiful night out there in Los Angeles
You live in Los Angeles and you are going to Reseda; we are all in some way or another going to Reseda someday to die
And the radioman laughs because the radioman fucks a model too
Gone savage for teenagers with automatic weapons and boundless love
Gone savage for teenagers who are aesthetically pleasing in other words fly
Los Angeles beckons the teenagers to come to her on buses;
Los Angeles loves love
It is 5 am and the sun has charred the other side of the world and come back to us and painted the smoke over our heads an imperial violet
it is 5 am and you are listening to Los Angeles.

Fancied has so many connotations! I totally had a crush on the lead gargoyle in Gargoyles (although I cannot be bothered to look up his name at the moment). Um... nothing else comes to mind

the dulcet tones of Hell's Kitchen on the tube. And for walks: Daft Punk
9. How do you feel about reincarnation?
i like the idea of it. it makes me feel less guilty about killing bugs (which, i know, is weird because the whole point is that i *shouldn't* be killing bugs, but hey, my head is a strange place). but i'm not sure if i actually embrace it wholesale.

Look, I know you're trying to assert yourself, and I'm glad you finally have opinions, but could you please not react with a huff or a pout or a snap every time something doesn't go your way? I wish I knew if it was me truly stepping on your toes every five minutes or you being totally sensitive, but I'm getting really fucking tired of being on edge and I will snap sooner or later.

finally getting the rest of our stuff! and starting up school again.
