christ, you mean it's not over?

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): July 4, 1776 is generally regarded as the day the 13 American colonies issued the Declaration of Independence, thereby asserting their right to be free of Britain's rule. But the fact is that only two members of the Continental Congress signed the document on that day. Most of the other 54 men waited until August 2. In a similar way, Virgo, a process you thought was fully climaxed this week will not reach its full ripening until early August. I suggest you reserve making your final conclusions until then.

ok so it seems i'm not the only on a little down lately... actually i think i'm on the upswing again so i'm going to tell/show you how i did it.

1. i watched this

(and shutup before you say you've seen it, it's been passed around the internet 5 times by now yada yada yada blah blah blah. just watch it.. listen to it all the way through. watch the little kid in the balcony jam his fucking brains out... listen to the bridge... hear 'em bring it back the other way. listen. appreciate. love.)

**update** fuck buzznet

2. i listened to "sound system" by op ivy. seriously, one time my friend turtle michele (oops) wrote this about the song:
This makes me fucking happy. It’s about creating something, turning words into song, making those words come to life, taking a thought you have in your head, making something of it, and it’s not yours anymore because you’ve put it out there and gave it to everyone. And it’s about being fucking happy, not giving in to the shit around you and just living in the moment. Well, that’s what I get out of it anyhow. box in my hand music by my side. skanking to the rhythm of the music by my side. Yea, dude.
and she's right. fuck how i feel about lint now, back then this was the shiznit -- as all the kids are saying these days.. (oh they're not? oh ok)

well listen to it anyway, i swear you can't help but smile.

3. when all else fails listen to debaser on repeat. it may not cheer you up, but it gives you something to do while you hate the world.

4. ok so you won't be cheered up? then at least GO VOTE for your favorite early 80's punk rock song over at faster than the world. then vote again and again and again. angry voting rocks.
