Friday, October 12, 2007


Today, I took the drug and alcohol test.The drug and alcohol test, required by all Florida drivers in order to get their permit is a royal pain. Yes, I know it is seven months after the blissful occasion when I turned fifteen. Yes, I know that I have been lazy and slow in getting my learner's. So, today, on the first day of fall break, I decided that I would get the drug and alcohol test out of the way so I could go to the DMV ASAP. Four hours, should be no problem. Right?


Four hours of timed readings of chapters on statistics of yearly deaths in America from doing drugs, drinking, and drinking and driving at the same time. And then, at the end, a forty question exam to test you on your newly gained knowledge of drugs and alcohol. So, here are a few nuggets of wisdom I picked up that you should know.

1. There is a collision every five seconds. Every ten seconds, someone is injured in a collision. And every twelve minutes, someone dies in a collision. That means that in just ONE DAY there are 17,280 collisions, 8,640 injuries, and 117 deaths. JUST FROM COLLISIONS!
2. Every year, 19,000 people die from drug use.
3. Alcohol first affects your judgement. Usually, you don't even notice it affecting you.
5. Crashes resulting from alcohol cost the public $116 BILLION.

So, I have this to say about the whole thing.

Across the Universe

Ever since I first listened to them in the third grade, I have been a die-hard fan of the Beatles. I have almost all of their albums, and not a week goes by without me listening to at least "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band". I viewed all covers of their hits as evil, sacreligious. How did those losers expect to recreate some of the most popular and classic music of the twentieth century??? They had absolutely no hope pf achieving what these great brits did for rock-n-roll. But I was pleasantly surprised to hear of 'Across the universe', a movie about life around the time of the Vietnam war, set to Beatle's tunes. When I first saw the trailer, and heard JIm Sturgess start singing 'Girl', I knew that this was going to be a different story then all of those wanna be coverers.

Evan Rachel Wood and JIm Sturgess protray a couple in the film that reminds me of John and Yoko. With all of their anti-war protests, and free hippie lives while singing Beatle's hits, I was astonishes at the similiarities.

The Soundtrack is entertaining from beginning to end, with songs from 'Hey Jude' and 'All You Need Is Love' to 'Let it Be' and 'Come Together'. Some pleasant surprises include 'Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds' and 'I am the Walrus' sung by Bono, lead singer of U2, and quite possibly one of my favorite rock stars ever!
Here are a couple of photos from the movie:

"All you need is love..."

So, now that you have read this post, go out and BUY THIS SOUNDTRACK! You won't regret it!

I'm Rennovating

OK, I have decided to make some changes about this blog. First of all, you may have noticed the new color scheme. I was getting a little tired of the dots. :-) Also, I lately have been lacking inspiration for my poetry, so I probably won't be writing poetry for a while in this blog. I am now going to devote this blog to MUSIC. I'll tell you about upcoming releases, cool bands, and make up cool playlists to have on your iPod! There might be a little bit of poetry here and there too...
So, I thought that I should just let you know what was going on so that you wouldn't think this was a different blog or anything. :-) Thanks for reading my rantings, and I will be sure to post about some cool music soon!

Where do I get my inspiration?

I get it from everywhere imaginable.

I get it from magazines
like Vogue
I get it from movies
like Breakfast at Tiffany's
Walk the Line
et cetera
I get it from the music I listen to
like U2
Death Cab For Cutie
The Shins
and Wilco
I get it from people
like my family
my friends
and even people I don't know
like famous historical figures
writers and poets
