Not All Know The Dark

“To go in the dark with a light is to know the light.
To know the dark, go dark. Go without sight,
and find that the dark, too, blooms and sings,
and is traveled by dark feet and dark wings.”
-- Wendell Berry

I Passed!

Earlier today I found out that I passed my Praxis exam... (I actually DE-STROYED it!) And was so excited that I jumped around work so much my boss thought I had to pee. Nope! Sure not bwoss! I'm just happy I'm actually for realsies in grad school now. Hoo-rah!

Guess what? It's October. I love October. I love October because I love fall. I love fall because you get to knit. I love knitting because you get to snuggle with doggies. I love snuggling with doggies because you go on walks with them. I love going on walks with them because I love walking in the fall air. I love fall because it's October.

You see what I did there?

I have no direction for my post today. Other than "I haven't blogged" in a while. This isn't to say I ever actually really have direction. With anything, really. But I'm ok with that. I'm ok with a lot of things, actually. Most recently, myself. I'm really, really OK with myself. It's pretty damn cool.

Whoops, class is starting. Better go listen now that I'm in grad school for the first and a half time! Yay!

ee cummings is the shit

there are so many tictoc
clocks everywhere telling people
what toctic time it is for
tictic instance five toc minutes toc
past six tic

Spring is not regulated and does
not get out of order nor do
its hands a little jerking move
over numbers slowly

we do not
wind it up it has no weights
springs wheels inside of
its slender self no indeed dear
nothing of the kind.

(So,when kiss Spring comes
we'll kiss each kiss other on kiss the kiss
lips because tic clocks toc don't make
a toctic difference
to kisskiss you and to
kiss me)

You know what I miss?

I miss Mel Gibson before he was crazy.

But I guess that just goes to show what sugar-tits and alcohol can do to a guy.

Why It'd Be Cool to Be in a Movie, Clovis Style

I've always thought it would be pretty badass to be in a movie, but not really for the reasons most other people seem to want to: celebrity, money, getting laid, money, artistic expression, and getting laid because you have money.

Nono, as it is with me for most things, I prefer the slightly eccentric, simple pleasures. So here are the reasons why I've always wanted to be in a movie, Clovis Style.

#1. Slow Motion Walking (romancey)

There has to be some scientifically proven fact that the slower-motiony someone walks in movies (particularly coming downstairs or entering a room) directly increases how attractive they are.

Believe me, I've tried it in real-life, but it just isn't the same. I just wind up looking like I'm trying to walk in slow motion and that just kills the whole effect.

#2. Slow Motion Walking (badassy)

In contrast, given the right elements (ass kicking music and some pleather), walking in slow motion could make me look infinitely more awesome than I am. Like you see here in The Matrix, except with fewer guns and even less death:

#3. Theme Music

Honestly, I have a fairly steady stream of theme music running in my head at most times, but it'd be so much better in surround sound. What's on My Life Soundtrack? Why, I'm glad you asked!

Everyday Theme Song:

Character Revealing Moment Song:

Song for the POTS/Fibro/Depression Mornings:

"I'm Gonna Hulk Out On You" Song:

Song for the Good Times (i.e. le montage):

Singing Into a Brush as a Microphone Song:

After-Life Song (morbid, I know, but I want this played at my funeral):

Wait until CD #2 comes out!

I just spent about an entire hour trying to find a video that would adequately depict how awesome my kicking ass scenes would be, but couldn't find one good enough. If you could combine Trinity with some Milla Jovavich and something other than pleather, you'd have it.
