No Live Music For You


Things that are depressing that have nothing to do with Heath Ledger and only relate to live music and me:

1- I purchased two tickets to the Tilly and the Wall show this March and now I might not be able to go. Dammit!

2- Tegan and Sara are doing another leg of their US tour, but aren't coming to Chicago. Why do you hate me? Is this because I'm not a lesbian? (Any Law & Order fans out there?)

3- As far as I can tell, Joe Firstman has no plans to come to the midwest. I'm gonna go curl up with my iPod and cry.

If you can't fix it, you gotta stand it.

I'm very sad about Heath Ledger. He was one of my favorites.

My dad was lying on the couch in the family room watching CNN, because he's boring, and I was on the computer, doing something pointless, because I'm me. I heard him yell for me, I think he thought I was in the basement. I wasn't sure what he wanted, his tone of voice seemed sort of urgent. That was when he told me. "Heath Ledger is dead." Obviously my first reaction was that he had gotten the information wrong. I read it for my self on, but I still don't really believe it. There is a part of me that honestly expects Heath to show up on the news tomorrow with a very Twain-esque "reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated." Because- Patrick Verona cannot be dead. It's not possible. When I told my mother the news, I laughed. Inappropriate, I know, but the words coming out of my mouth just seemed so rediculous.

I still have a magazine cut-out, an ad for 10 Things I Hate About You, on my bedroom wall. I also have not one, but two James Dean posters in my room. Coincidence? I think not. Both eternally young, beautiful, and cool; both figures that will always raise the question of what would have come of their obvious talents had they not died so tragically young.

I recently applied for a job at the Wilmington Public Library. That's not what this is about.

For many many years, Abby and I have been trading books within a close-knit circle of friends. Abby has decided to step things up a notch and created the Unimaginary Book Club.

After Holiday Sales

"Sale $39.99- Hydraulic Jeans - Reg. $38, you save $-1."

Well, with savings like that, how can I afford not to buy?
