goblin sneak

the sleep of death is dreamless.

send out the heralds & while you are at it run out the cannons, too. o & hell, the canons, lets make this shit get all dogmatic, because last night i met up with sparrowhills. thats right, the very swede who caused brother to turn against brother over fruits, vegetables & lambchops; who poisoned jesus' wine & made him say all that crazy shit; who dropped 'shrooms with some crazy guy on patmos. she's having some double-barrel action this christmas it turns out; but then, olive is a bit used to that sort of thing. i tore her out of the grasp of her union square hotel & took her to satellite, where victoria works. we drank gin & tonics there for a while, talking about my novel ideas & waiting for kate's flake to become official. eventually, when we'd had our fill, we took to the streets & arm in arm i walked her back to the hotel. i was going to take my leave of her then (we've got two weeks to be the best of enemies) but persueded myself into staying for a few drinks more. my impressions of the evening? if by impressions you mean the marks left on a punching bag when you get done with it, then we are on the same page. how many people live in new york? 8.5 million or something? anyhow, 9 million people live in sweden. so basically my town is as big as olive's country. which is to say: she's a big fish in a small fucking pond. but let me tell you- she'd be a big fish anywhere else. she heralds your destruction, o mankind.

first thing first; the knock-out song on the album is really "terrible angels." this isn't a 'nuff said issue here- terrible angels really deserves to be dwelt on. its lyrics are basically a lock-pick's fingers turning over my tumblers. apparently the singer is trained for opera? we'll i'd be her gentleman caller (least aways if i wasn't spoken for). "if every angel's terrible, then why do you welcome them," & talk of wearing purple eyes like rings? i need to get my shit together & download the entire corpus of that act. the rest of the album is very solidly a tale from a soldier to another, you dig? "why can't monsters get along with other monsters?" & shit like that. a whole song about time breaking the world! shit, i'm a lucky villian, slinking about the store- not a sunbeam, not a single customer, not any angel hair either mr. kobain. i've been here all day listening to this disc & looking at ICO screencaps. it is a particular sort of day. the only over-lap (the inevitable consequence of any mix) is the neutral milk hotel, so other than that? thats better than 90% accuracy!

it'd be swell if jenny was in a good mood when i got home.
