I'm feeling rough, I'm feeling raw, I'm in the time of my life...

Ah, to be a teen. Twenty next year, without a care in the world.
I lie. Even though I'm jobless, broke, and still supported by my parents (don't judge- I know many a person who moved out too early and moved back home in under a year.) - I have my problems. Some, of course, revolving around the above. Ah, at least I know that when I finally escape my nest, it will be right. Then we'll see who's laughing.

New topic.
This beautiful soul here is a magical man. Ben Kweller (yes, that is his own merch he wears proudly on his chest- and why shouldn't he?). He is the character I quote and speak of so frequently that it drives you all mad. To apologise would be quite absurd; I mean every word, gush, utterance, mention of him. He, besides the Lord, is who I question when I need instant answers. He is my creative muse, my inspiration.
You should all, at the very least, look into him... (!)
Find out what makes this family man tick. Keep in mind that today (in Australia, at least) he's releasing a new album- "Changing horses". A more country styled LP, a different direction- though I'm digging it! I am psyched to my absolute core, to say the least!
Hurry and bring me some B.K love, mistah postman.

Oh yes, I could continue on my B.K ramblings, but I am absolutely positive all possible future interest would be lost in him forever more. I'll save it for another post. ;] Until then, "
Remember me, don't forget me" - it's time for me to sell up one festival ticket for another... Blues & Roots, Ben, I'm headed your way! :D

I wish I were with you, I couldn't stay.

"New year, time for change..."

That's what they all say, is it not? It's only a number of weeks, if not days, before the majority of the world's New years resolutions go down the drain... Prove me wrong.

What the first 27 days of '09 (not including this morning) have brought me so far:
A new year, a holiday back home, twilight zone, another year of life,
the thought of shaving for a cure- in addition to the thought of moving home, and a teenager's puzzled heart...

(To those who read my last post, I have also received a mango splitter in this time. Miracles do exist.)

The rest of this week will be one of the greatest of my life. As well as the new B.K album "Changing Horses" on the 31st (FUCKING YEAH!),
I get to see one of my idols, as well as Ben's...

... time to keep truckin'.

Echoes and silence, patience and grace

All of these moments I'll never replace
Fear of my heart, absence of faith
All I want is to be home.
