Reality Bites


Love that movie. I watched it when it came out and loved it. Watched it again within the last few years and still loved it. I love that the radio played a song from that movie for me this morning. Yesterday was the birthday of a guy I was really good friends with, MP. Just friends. We hardly ever touched but we talked a lot. I met him at one of my gas station jobs. We worked together, had a mutual friend and partied together. Him and I picked out the house we rented in Bloomsburg, not long after I walked away from my dealer friends down south. I lived there for seven months with him and several other guys. All just friends. No fucking up the living situation. We partied a lot and had the best, biggest birthday party I ever had, my 20th. Fun, fun times. He introduced me to Monty Python, Les Claypool, Clutch, Acidbath, a different kind of music and a different World. He taught me how to see the masks that people wear and how to see things that others don't. He showed me reality and reality sure does bite, doesn't it??

One night, he asked me for an idea of something to draw. I asked him to draw me a tattoo. I love my 'tramp stamp' but I don't like where the tattoo guy placed it. Alex doesn't either, he's thinking about how to make it look better because we do love the design. MP has married a girl who lives down the road. We use to ride the bus together but she doesn't like me so I'm not friends with him any more but I think it's great that he lives right down the road and is still friends with people I went to school with. He's not from around here

I had a tough time finding music again this morning. Rain sucks. "Uptown Funk" makes me think of barber school. I hate the version of "When Doves Cry" on Spotify but Prince is tight with sharing. He doesn't. It's my fav Prince song and his played on Hart Road, I have to add it. "Secrets" played in Magic Valley.....hmmm. I don't care much for "Stereo Hearts" but the radio is playing for me and keeping my heart beating. "Riptide" I listened to a lot in barber school, I'm definitely in love with that song.

Saturday evening I watched The Otherworld by Richard Stanley. I was enthralled. I want to go to all those places. They mention Jan 17 being important, there are seven gates to Hell and something important happened in May 1981. I want to meet Urainie and Jaap and I definitely want to walk on that:

Last night I watched an episode of How the Universe Works. On asteroids. I was blown away. I never knew so much about them but I knew they were important in birth charts. The word orignated in Greece 1795-1805 and means starlike. Hmmm.....Aquarius is the water-bearer in astrology and the Star in tarot. I have the asteroids Eros and Ceres in Aries, which means I Am. And here on Earth, I live on top of a mountain with a really awesome well and delicious, cold water. Earth is going to Hell. We are killing her and we need water. Centralia is on fire, where else have we fucked up?? I love this shows idea of making colonies on asteroids and floating around in the Universe. I've dreamed about being out there and seeing the planets up close. Wouldn't that be awesome?? Let's dream about that and make it happen. Until then, let's enjoy Earth's treasures while they are still here <3
