Fleming and John are great. I first heard "Love Songs" by them a little over two years ago, and more recently, "The Pearl" which I think is a remake of the Harold Budd/Brian Eno song of the same name? It sounds really familiar, but I haven't been able to verify. Anyway, lyrics for "The Pearl"...




Oh look I've found it,
Oh I've really found it,
How could such a thing be happening to me?
Oh please don't drop it,
I'd die if you lost it,
You see it means the world to me.

Now everything we ever wanted,
Lies within our reach.
Patiently anticipating,
The world lies at our feet.

It could be the pearl,
It could be our hope, our dream, our life
It could be the pearl,
The end of all our pain and strife could be the pearl

Run, keep on running,
Oh I hear them coming,
How could they try to take what is ours?
Please run faster,
Oh they're right behind us,
How much further can we go?

It possesses me, controls me,
It makes me run, it makes me kill.
The very thing that made me strong,
Has taken all my will.

It could be the pearl,
It could be our hope, our dream, our life.
It could be the pearl,
The end of all our pain and strife could be the pearl.

I must take it, throw it in the ocean,
Far, far away from me,
We were happy, oh we were so happy,
When things were the way they used to be.

It could be the pearl,
It could be our hope, our dream, our life.
It could be the pearl,
The end of all our pain and strife could be the pearl.




And I just had to add myself to the LJ Map... it's just neat to see where everyone is. My map is here. You don't really need the ugly bulky form on here, just look at the page and it's pretty self-explanatory on how to add yourself. ;)

I cleaned up my buddy list earlier too... here's a screenshot of little ol' Trillian. I frequently get tired of seeing people on my contact list that I never talk to, it just wastes screen space, and depresses me that I have all these contacts, distant points in the world, and yet no one to talk to. So I cleaned it up... there's actually 16 people in the root of the Main section, and under More, there's 3 groups of other people... local people here in Olivet, people on Realms of Despair, and a general catch-all group. So much cleaner now. And just for kicks, I did another the smallest I could at the time. :D

My friend Ben sent me this link on AIM. Scary stuff. cryo said it best when he said...

[21:47:01] <Cryo> I don't want to know what that is above "Before Washing"

Hoverboards are a reality. Ooo.

I don't remember who I stole this from now, it's been a week or so I think. But anyway, Caring For Your Introvert.

I want to go see Matrix Revolutions Wednesday, hopefully I can. I'm surprised theaters don't seem to be doing a midnight showing??? And it's not sold out for the first show times still? Hmm, weird.

I need to remember to send my Back to the Future Trilogy DVD's 2 and 3 back to Universal to get them replaced.


Thank you for posting that caring for your introvert link! I read it the first time it went around and have been kicking myself for not saving it.
