I'm the independent band to Jerm's corporate conglomerate.
Lets just be honest. Sometimes I avoid talking because I can't keep what I want to say out of my mouth. I'm not the type of person who likes to spare feelings, but I do it, regardless of whose they are. Don't get me wrong. I'm not out on a crusade against anyone, I just seem to think if I can take it, I should be able to dish it out. But wait, you say, Javann, isn't that backwards? Of course, I say, it is. Because I think it should be. It shouldn't be if you can dish it out, you can take it. Because lets face it, a lot of people can dish things out. Its the taking it that seems to be the problem. And that's why I think you have to earn the right to dish it out by first taking it with a grain of salt. What's it?

So here's where I unleash on someone right? Nope. Because I know its not worth it. And I know they probably couldn't take it. Besides, who really reads what I say here anyway? Well, other than a select few. Symbolism and subtlety aren't your forte. No, disembodied voice, I really can't be subtle can I?

Didn't you use to be interesting? On another note, what's with the sudden cold? I think the weather should always be a pleasant seventy to seventy-five degrees and that anytime you can't wear shorts outside, you should automatically be exempt from doing anything but huddling up under a blanket and watching movies with the heater on. Yeah. . .I like that idea. The movies or the blanket huddling? And some hot chocolate too.

You're amazing! You should fight crime!

Fallout Boy is stuck in my head. I've been going down swinging, being number one with the bullet, and cocking and pulling it since yesterday. I'm not even a huge fan of the ban, its just that chorus and the accompanying riff is so catchy. I don't like anything else they do, I swear it. How do I know? I've never heard it, and I know all music that is good.

I think if I ever master, or wait, get good enough to know what the heck is going on with, my guitar, I'd like to write a catchy song. Something really catchy. There are lot of catchy songs. Franz Ferdinand's first hit, Take Me Out. I can hum that riff in Siberia while sipping vodka with my comrades, and I swear they will recognize it. Or say the opening notes to Nirvana's Smells Like Teen Spirit. Classic. Like a finely aged wine.

But that's the weird thing. One hit wonders are basically just that. Catchy songs. Here's a classic one hit wonder. Young MC's Bust A Move. It doesn't get any better than that. He didn't have anything else explode. But that break beat with the funky distorted electric guitar and the breakdown? Catchy. I still remember words to it. Another catchy one hit wonder was Gary Newton's Cars. Catchy. Very catchy. Or the Cardigan's Lovefool. Accomplished band with several albums but only one chart topping hit. Why? That song's catchy. Its got the girl whining "love me love me" and the guaranteed clincher: the distorted talking voice. Remember, I cry, and I cry, and I beg for you to.

In this city ladies look pretty/Guys tell jokes so they can seem witty/Tell a funny joke just to get some play/Then you try to make a move and she says, "No way"/Girls are fakin goodness sakin/They want the man who brings home the bacon/Got no money and you got no car/Then you got no women and there you are/Some girls are sadistic, materialistic/Lookin for a man makes them opportunistic/They're lyin on a beach perpetrating a tan/So a brother with the money can be their man/So on the beach you're strollin real high rollin/Everything you have is yours and not stolen/A girl runs up with somethin to prove/So don't just stand there bust a move

Don't really feel like posting today, but I would like to say, if a friend of yours goes to sleep on your loveseat, don't let him wake up in a cold sweat at twelve in the morning, suddenly realizing that everyone is gone, and someone's been drinking his vodka. Friends don't let friends sleep beyond the time the party's over. Also, Mystery Science Theater 3000 isn't funny if you like to talk through movies yourself, and frankly, you're funnier than anything those guys at the bottom of the screen can even think of.


See? Hilarious!

I won't do what you tell me/I won't do what you say!

That's right. Its Saturday. Oooohh ooooohh! Normally, I take the weekend off from posting on my blog, but this time, I took the week off. On the moon, our weekends have evolved beyond your weekends here on Earth. Now they are the entire week, and jobs have been phased out. And apparently, I'll be posting on the weekend. Actually just day, because, well, I don't wanna on Sunday.

Ever seen the opening montage to Bosom Buddies? You know that old show with Tom Hanks and Peter Scolari, where they had to dress in drag to get this apartment because they were broke, and then hilarity ensued? Or maybe not hilarity, more like one hugely popular star winning Oscars and a aplomb, and one unknown star who stayed unknown playing bit roles in stuff like, Honey I Shrunk the Kids: The TV series. Ouch! Way to insult the guy with a full time job!

That montage is cool. In a uniquely cheesy kind of way, of course. Of course. Ever wonder what your montage would be like? For instance, there's a shot of me bursting through a glass window, then another shot of me getting the subsequent stitches at the ER, all the time laughing and smiling. Or if I were on an action packed TV show, I'd burst through the glass window in a old school muscle car, guns and cigar blazing, (Because smoking is cool!) then it would cut away to me like running up in slow motion, or cut away to me roughing some random bad guy up, like slamming him up against the wall, or running one down. Then maybe a few shots of me in awkward situations, like waking up to a gun pointed at me. Then the I'm-too-cool-for-this-to-bring-me-down shot, or what some would call the I'm a well adjusted adult so when I'm not bringing in bad guys or solving crimes, I'm smiling and enjoying life shot.

Love is all around/why don't you take it/you can make it now/no need to fake it/you're going to make it after all!

And hat toss into the air.
