okay, so i know i've been posting a lot of eyedea stuff lately. but i've been listening to him a lot. and finding it so very good.

i figured this one was appropriate for today. especially as i can hear it hitting hard outside right now.

these are the thoughts
that don't make it
over the bridge to tomorrow.
my best laid plans
die in the dark,
unless i tend to them
through the night.
leaving me too tired
to carry them out.


my greatest ideas
are born at 3
in the morning.

the next day,
life takes them
for the marks
that they are.

they were
just born yesterday.

ghosts haunt me in the morning:

i'm a little disconcerted that a half awake dream i have before i wake up can, among other things, put me in a melancholy mood for the rest of the day.

everything about sleep is against me.

a fancy feast for fancy gentlemen (a photo post):

note: neither scott nor i smoke. the pack of cigarettes were found in our couch when we moved in and are utilized solely for joke purposes. also, giant 52 ounce fountain drinks should be consumed only by trained professionals.

oh monday:

eyedea & abilities - exhausted love

aesop rock - 9-5ers anthem

fortunately the after work portion of the day was good.

and a preemptive thank you to u.p.s. for my waking up at 8 tomorrow to sit around waiting for a package delivery.

maybe i can get some writing done.

i just found out that the rapper, eyedea, died today.

i had been meaning to start a series of posts about early influences on me, specifically hip hop based influences, and the first one was gonna be about him. but i kept putting it off cause i wanted to take the proper time to express myself clearly.

maybe i'll come back later and actually do that post.

for now i'll just say that i don't think i would have ever really thought i could rap if i hadn't seen and heard eyedea.

here's a couple songs.

eyedea and abilities - ...powdered water too (part one)
