Hai, still no one wanting free paid journal time? I srsly, srsly would not like it to go to waste - so if you have a friend or a loved one you'd like to pass IJ journal time on, drop me a comment! I'm that desperate! I'm begging people to take stuff! *laughs*

Not getting enough sleep because the electricity keeps going is a bummer. But listening to Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds makes everything better.

One of the most amazing songs on earth, probably:

Eh Hee

These tracks were recorded live, and Dave M. was just discussing how he'd gone out and talked with some native Indians, and how he'd listened to them sing and create polyrhythms and music that came "before language" -- and this track blends both the before and the after of language in-- you have to listen to it, honestly. It as religious lyrics - but it's one of those times when you listen and you know that it transcends any sort of religiosity. They performed it at Radio City; most amazing DVD of anything I'd seen in my life - two men, two guitars and one voice.


Eh hee yeah amanaya yeaha yeah eh eh amana
Eh hee yeah amanaya yeaha yeah eh eh

Praise God who has many names but the Devil have many more
And with the love that my mother gave me I'm gon' drop the Devil to the floor
Im gon' drop the Devil to his knees
Im gon' drop the Devil to his knees

There's always people who'll try to convince you
That they know the answer no matter the question
Be wary of those who believe in a neat little world
Because it's just fucking crazy, you know that it is

Seen evolution, my people have come to believe
That we are the traitors, the cheaters
We pray that we're just a collection of cells
We parade with ourselves
And we're proud of avoiding the truth


And another, just because one is never enough: When the World Ends.

When the world ends
We'll be burnin one
When the worlds ends
You know you and me we'll be makin love
Oh yeah know when the world ends
I'm gon' take you aside and say
Let's watch it fade away fade away oh
Cuz the world's done
I've just begun it's done i's just begun
