enfin's reality, music

surprise! this past weekend was wunderbar.Β  yes… back to my native tongue! it’s funny how quickly you can fall out of habit, but then, as if nothing happened, return to it as quickly as you fell out!

for starters- i hate fourth of july.Β  i always have, and i always will, and i suppose there are a few reasons behind this hatred.Β  one: i am not patriotic by any means.Β  surely, i do love living in the united states- solely because of freedom- and yes, generally i wouldn’t say that, because i feel as though some rights are most definitely hindered, but, today i am saying that.Β  two: drunks on the eastern promenade are not the sort of people i like sitting next to, while having them regurgitate on my blanket.Β  three: i’m not too big on fireworks- in fact, the only reason i watch them, is to hear them.Β  four: i think the color combination, red white and blue is rather tragic, and i hate seeing it plastered all over everyone who makes a big deal out of the frikin’ fourth of july.Β  five: i prefer bastille day.Β  to hell with america, vive la france!

but let’s back up.Β  today was unexpectedly grand.Β  trips to the beach with healthy vegetation, books galore, the clash & family.Β  not to mention miraculously warm waters to swim in, and even warmer temperatures and endless sunshine.Β  all this followed by a mid evening excursion to el rayo- which i initially protested, but now, after experiencing the dining, i have clearly changed my mind.Β  so fresh, so clean, so delicious, so divine.Β  i was rather pleased with el rayo- hence this.Β  dancing in the ghetto with sparklers and watching the fireworks from the roof was a nice night cap, and now i ready myself to sleep, just so i can awake, ride to the corporate sell-out spot, and then take another trip to the beach again.Β  rinse, repeat, rinse, repeat.Β  so much fun, so happy it’s summertime.Β  it seems as if all my film keeps disappearing.Β  gone through 5 rolls this week- everything is adding up, and there is no ending in sight.Β  oceanic adventure beginning in one day.Β  what can i say? i’m looking forward to it, for both selfish reasons and reasons of pure selflessness (if that even existed).

i’ll eventually post a new mixtape for summer (i’m getting lazy, yet i’m balancing two blogs, and going on holidays often).Β  i’ll also try and scan some photos and get them posted too.Β  there is some sort of surprise in store regarding a revolutionary idea to re-amp a wonderful thing that portland is probably missing- and i plan on makin’ some creme brulee soon- so someone better buy me a blowtorch.Β  no more green for quite some time, and just because i thought of that, let’s chew on this- i hate pbr.Β  eff off hipster culture and cry me the nile.

postscriptum: i’ve had two very cute waiters this past week, hmm… oh yeah, jack johnson never changes, and i’ve decided that’s a wonderful thing! oh and to add to the local natives video featured up top- if you haven’t listened to gorilla manor, YOU MUST.

enfin's reality

pynchon


lady stole my dream outfit.

do you ever get bothered by something you probably shouldn’t be bothered by? for example, this is completely hypothetical mind you, yer best friend seems to have this deep intense enjoyment of pretending to be you and pretending to live yer life? well, i get bothered by things like that quite easily. and i just did.

i’m reading gravity’s rainbow by pynchon. it’s quite good thus far, and i’m trying to savour it rather than eat right through it. last evening was so boring. i should have gone to coyle street or to space even though that’s where the hipsters go.Β  deertick played at space, and story played at coyle street. its unfortunate that i was too lazy to hop on ethel and ride to one of those venues. lately i’ve been feeling like i’m sans friends, which is kind of, in an odd way, refreshing. i don’t have any obligation to turn on my phone, nor do i have any obligation to log on to the f-word (facebook).Β  canada is in five days, which makes me pretty damn excited. other than that, my week promises to be busy. i don’t exactly want to go play tennis, but i know that i have to thus I must.Β  i really hate people who try to be someone they’re not.Β  in addition to that, i hate friends who go through other friends to get what they want and pretend they’re someone they’re not. someone who has observed the same type of behavior told me not to mind it, saying that it was a form of flattery. bullshit. i don’t care about flattery, i never have. all i know right now is that i’m in for a long day. whether or not that’s a bueno thing… we’ll see in 12 hours.Β  which in reality is not a long time. time. another thing i’d love to speak about. we’re racing against time, whether we define time as the moments that have passed, or the moments until the end, everyone, in one way or another, is racing against time. i wish we could just forget it, seeing as a million years ago it didn’t exist. stupid marilyn kept me up all evening, with her legs swinging and hands ticking. mocking my very existence in a way.Β  just to stay organized, because i check this more than i check my calender, below i’m listing my next month, so feel free to bypass it. thanks.
