Van Occupanther

I am loving the songs that I am finding during this winter break. You have to check this one out. Its somewhere along Indie/rock or Folk/Rock. šŸ˜€

I must be careful now in my steps
Years of calculations and the stress
My science is waiting, nearly complete
One glass will last for nearly a week

Let me not get down from walking with no-one
and if I stumble from exhaustion
These buckets are heavy, I fill them with water
I could ask these people, but I shouldn’t bother

Oh no, I’ve stumbled, was I going too fast?
Some get angry, some of them laugh
They told me I wouldn’t, but I found an answer
I’m Van Occupanther, I’m Van Occupanther!

Let me not be too consumed with this world
Sometimes I want to go home
and stay out of sight for a long time

Let me not be too consumed with this world
Sometimes I want to go home
and stay out of sight for a long time

Something to look forward to?

Music has been the answer to that for me. Always. Its always something to look forward to, something to make my day brighter and something to get me off my bed even if its just for dancing. There is thing with me, that whenever I listen to something new I feel this urge to immediately share it with other people regardless of the fact that they might or might not like it. Hence today I want to share this amazing album calledĀ Blue Screen Life (2001).Ā Its an album by a band calledĀ PinbackĀ  which dabbles in mostly indie-rock/alternative stuff. Anyway the album is hauntingly beautiful and my first from this band. I am looking forward to listening to their other albums, however in the meanwhile I would love if I could interest any of you guys in listening to this song which is my favourite from this album:

Do tell me if you liked it and why you liked it! I’d love to discuss or just talk. šŸ˜€

Hesse and Vacations.

Exams are over, so is the current purpose of my life. The only thing that does not work out with vacations is you loose your purpose. All that time I spent giving my exams, I kept thinking, “when will vacations come??”. Because of course, IĀ don’t want to give exams either. But when vacations do arrive, I spend all my time sleeping. So I picked up something today, which I had been planning to read for a very long time. DEMIAN by HERMANN HESSE! The reason I chose this novel is because the epigraph struck a chord with me. It goes like:

All I wanted to do was try to live the life that was inside me, trying to get out. Why was that so hard?

So lets see what tone does this novel set for my vacations. I just felt like writing something again. I shall revisit with my mood-swings and some spoilers.

The imagery!

Over the way lights went on; far down the block the crash was heard, and pedestrians rushed up wonderingly; upstairs a tired man awoke from the edge of sleep and a little girl whimpered in a haunted doze. And all over the moonlit sidewalk around the still, black form, hundreds of prisms and cubes and splinters of glass reflected the light in little gleams of blue, and black edged with yellow, and yellow, and crimson edged with black.

The Cut-Glass Bowl,Ā F. Scott FitzgeraldĀ 

***

So pretty, isn’t it? Its one of the best last lines of a story that I have read so far. Every time I read this I fall in love with Fitzgerald all over.

Down the unimaginative lane in trash town.

Creativity is playing hard to get and coffee is rearranging everything inside my head for now. I just realized that i might have spent my entire day Joyriding a Jet-pack on my cell phone and right now I couldn’t care less. Philosophy is some tough sport. But I cant stop listening to The Killers. Heard of ’em? You should. My recent favorite has been ‘Somebody told me’. Catchy. SO its high time, need to create-wise (pronounced as creativise, yep I am drunk on caffeine) myself, the wallflower me needs desperately to go on an imaginative spree.
