SSLYBY "Glue Girls"

Here I am again, laying flat on my back, tapping the sides - not the soles - of my boots on the floor, trying to decipher a pattern in the ceiling tiles. I only ponder philosophical questions at times like this when I'm waiting for life to happen. Or maybe I'm a trailblazer in the infinite number of decisions I could make, paths I could take, things I could say.

And, somewhere, in the optimistic pop, playful guitar solos, cowbell, and lyrics about two sisters and waiting for love, I get the sense Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin is sharing this state of mind. It's not about the lyrics, really, but the delivery:
"she can make-your-tongue
she can make-your-tongue,
make your tongue stick to the suuu-un.

May-be if i laaaaay low,
love will fall around my door
the dogs will let me know..."
And so it goes. Perishing will be released on April 8th.

I've been busy, okay?

Some of you have been e-mailing me asking why I haven't been posting for the past month and a half. Here's an answer:

Sometimes I like to take a virtual vacation: I don't check my e-mail, pick up the phone, or turn on the television. I've been in need of one lately, and there's no way to pull it off during the I took a blog break instead. This semester is a bit crazy, but I'll try to get back to posting as often as I can.
