Gonna spin The ‘59 Sound over and over again until I fall asleep.
Life is like one of Ed’s stories. Two tangents for every tangent, and as the hours pass i’m burning with impatience. What is this about? How did it start and what could it possibly mean? How can I hurry up and get to the end without being rude?
Ed’s stories are never funny, but he always has a good laugh at the end. Is life like that, a joke that’s not funny? A story that doesn’t make sense? Maybe he has the right attitude, laughing anyway. Maybe life isn’t the joke at all, but just the punchline which makes the jokes stupid. When i die, will Ed laugh? Will I?
I think life may be a book with the last pages missing, or a song cut off at the end of the tape. Struck dead in the middle of one of Ed’s stories, would it come as a relief, or would the feeling of withdrawal be torturous? I hate to leave anything unfinished. But, alas, that is probably the very essence of life. Feeling incomplete. Like Ed’s stories, ending but never coming to a conclusion."
Last night I cried because I want to be in a punk band so bad.
I’m on the air tonight, 88.7fm in the Hudson Valley.
