This is a monologue taken from a song called Dead Flag Blues by Godspeed you! Black Emperor. Their genius is in finding moving interviews and monologues, then adding music to it. This sometimes sums up emotions I’m feeling, especially with the music that accompanies it.

the car’s on fire and there’s no driver at the wheel
and the sewers are all muddied with a thousand lonely suicides
and a dark wind blows

the government is corrupt
and we’re on so many drugs
with the radio on and the curtains drawn

we’re trapped in the belly of this horrible machine
and the machine is bleeding to death

the sun has fallen down
and the billboards are all leering
and the flags are all dead at the top of their poles

it went like this:

the buildings tumbled in on themselves
mothers clutching babies picked through the rubble
and pulled out their hair

the skyline was beautiful on fire
all twisted metal stretching upwards
everything washed in a thin orange haze

i said: “kiss me, you’re beautiful –
these are truly the last days”

you grabbed my hand and we fell into it
like a daydream or a fever

we woke up one morning and fell a little further down –
for sure it’s the valley of death

i open up my wallet
and it’s full of blood

First: I got 20 on this one. Don’t cheat.

27 02 2006

I got:

The average person only gets 7 right.

This is based on U.S. info, so use all lobes of your brain. This can be more difficult than it looks – it just shows how little most of us really see!

There are 25 questions about things we see every day or have known about all our lives. How many can you get right? These little simple questions are harder than you think– it just shows you how little we pay attention to the commonplace things of life. Put your thinking caps on.

No cheating! No looking around! No getting out of your chair! No using anything on or in your desk or computer!

Can you beat 20?? It is nearly impossible for any normal person to get higher than a 20 (The average is 7). Write down your answers and check answers (on the bottom) AFTER completing all t he questions.

REMEMBER – NO CHEATING!!! BE HONEST!!! That means no looking at your phone or anything on your desk…

Then, before you resend this, change the numbeon the subject line to show how many you got corre! ct.

I had to document my breakthrough in my paper thesis. This will only make sense if you’ve read As I Lay Dying by Faulkner. I recommend it, as I liked it. I could lend it to you.
What is the larger theme in the text?!?!?!

Addie Bundren’s freedom! Did she want children or not? Anse was dead to her. she looked away from him before death. Talked of wild geese in her section. Darkness…darkness… darkness… light of her eyes flared up right before death, then died. How does whitfield tie in? Jewel and her affair with Whitfield? What did the children mean to her? What about after death? Did she “get back” at them by “causing” the trials and tribulations? Did she get at them by asking to be buried in Jefferson?

My entrepreneurial friends Chloe and Liah have started this great idea, and you all need to know about it. It’s called You Tattoo Us. The website is www.youtattoous.com. You all should go check it out, especially since I’m on the front page! I guess they like my goofy face. Maybe I’ll end up on the news when they show the site!

They were also just in the Capitol Times. I can’t find the link right now. Check out their blog off of the site, though!

New Mason Jennings album out May 2. YES! If you haven’t heard him, you need to.
