Eden --beggars and thieves--

Music: Commissioning a Symphony in C by Cake (if it actually works... if not then whatever song plays...)

Uhhhhhhh favorite books..... hmmmm I don't really have absolute favorite books because I love most of the books I read... except for when they're really stupid... but I'll try to think of some.

1984 by George Orwell

Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams
Earth (the book) by Jon Stewart

I'd add one of those romantic teen comedy type books but they all kind of blend together in my mind... though I would put the ones that Victoria has written in the list if I knew their cover art...

ANYWAY! So today, by standing with a sign that said "Will b stoopid 4 coachella $$$", we ended up getting $6.15

When that slightly disheartened us, and when the fact that it's kinda sold out making us even more disheartened, we for some reason (I think it was to make more money by the whole begging thing...?) decided to make a band. So uh, we are Beggars and Thieves, because we like... begged for money... and the thieves part (my idea!) just kinda sounded cool.

So Imma look through some poetry of mine now to see if any of it can be adapted into a song

VICTORIA: Read a book. It's good for you.


i just had a sandwich, no ordinary sandwich, a sandwich filled with jelly fish JEEEELLLLYYYYYY!

That. has. nothing. to. do. with. this. post.

MUSIC: I like the song Rhi chose, so i'm just gonna keep it at that :)
So heres my life this weekend. it was actually fun! Thursday: saw the school play with my mum. Clapped, cheered, laughed. sent a candy gram. Friday: went to the beach and took some pictures, had some french fries whilst spelling the icky ocean poop, watched a little boy go up and down on the bouncy trampoline thingy, left the beach too late, ended up riding home in the dark scared, took my cheesy teen books off my shelf, made a bed with sleeping bags, pillows, and blankets, read my favorite parts of the books. Saturday: got my hair did blonde...ish, had a yummy ceaser salad whilst this middle age man kept staring at me like i was crazy or something, tried calling rhi all day but she was asleep, went to her house to deliver her binder, went to the school play again with her, clapped, cheered, laughed, sent another candy gram, walked home in the dark, continued reading favorite parts of books, went to sleep with the light on, woke up in the middle of the night with my mom asking me why there was a vase next to me, didn't have an answer, so i guess turned off the light and tv, picked up a random vase all while i was asleep. Sunday: continued reading favorite parts of books, went to the central library with eden on our bikes, got a bunch of books, cds, and waynes world 2 and david bowie movies, got ice cream at balboa, went home, did laundrey, took the lights from the tree and am making a twinkly light thingy on my book shelf, put away clothes, finished up some homework, went to sleep in my actual bed where i tried not to sleep walk and pick up any stray vases.

ANYWAY! that was a play by play of my weekend! how was urs?

And on we go....
I really want to do my favorite books!

Favorite books!


Probably my favotrite of them all. Maybe cuz i just love john green (youtuber) or just because I know the story behind it (youtube) or maybe just cuz its amazing.

And right now i'm reading.....

Cutest thing ever! The boys name is John Lennon but people call him Beatle and her name is Destiny McCartney and its just super adorbs! I havent finished it yet but still :)

If you would like to do this as well, i mean post ur favorite books, go right a head :) but you don't have to if ya don't wanta

song: a song to pass the time by bright eyes

bright eyes
and I hang like a star
fucking glow in the dark
for all those starving eyes to see
like the ones we've wished on well now I'm confused
is this death really you? 

elliott smith
drink up baby, look at the stars I'll kiss you again between the bars

the xx
watch things on vcrs with me and talkin' bout big love
i think we're superstars 
you say you think we are the best thing 
but you
you just know
you just do

if you've lost your faith in love and music oh the end won't be long
because if it's gone for you then I too may lose it 
and that would be wrong
it's not about tenements and needles 
and all the evils in their eyes and the backs of their minds
daisy chains and school yard games and a list of things we said we'd do tomorrow
found a pretty video to go along with this next one
and guess what? the person in its name is rhiannon also, hehe
blog here

bob dylan
still I wish there was something you would do or say
to try and make me change my mind and stay 
but we never did too much talking anyway
so don't think twice it's all right
then take me disappearin' through the smoke rings of my mind
down the foggy ruins of time
far past the frozen leaves 
the haunted frightened trees 
out to the windy beach 
far from the twisted reach of crazy sorrow
Yes to dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand wavin free
silhouetted by the sea 
circled by the circus sands
with all memory and fate
driven deep beneath the waves
let me forget about today until tomorrow

The strokes
oh maya says i'm lacking in depth
I will do my best 
you say you wanna stay by my side
darlin your heads not right
you see alone we stand together we fall apart yeeeaaaauuhh
i think I'll be all right

she & him
Orpheus melted the heart of Persephone but I never had yours
hehe :)
in sweetness comes suffering
i won't rest till i can't breathe 
I can't breathe with you lookin at me
"I lived on a table, I don't know where to go. I know my friends would…I know where my friends are now. I lived on a farm, yeah. I never lived on a farm. Where did my friends go? where did my friends go?"

fleet foxes
hummingbird, just let me die, inside the broken ovals of your olive eyes
i do believe you gave it your best try
oh hummingbird sing to me

that was fuunnnn

EDEN! I was so excited to do this post!!!
Hokay, so i cant do top 5 like you did, i just cant do it!
In no specific order.....

1. The Morning Benders- Excuses "And I made an excuse, And you found another way to tell the truth, I put no one else above us, We'll still be best friends when all turns to dust" It's not so much the lyrics that i love about this song, it's really the music and the chorus of voices. Not to go all weird on you, but i really think this song shows a more mature level for the morning benders compared to their last album. It has more depth. Even if it is about SEX. 2. Fleet Foxes- He Doesnt Know Why "Memory is a fickle siren song, I didn't understand"  Again, i like this song more for the music rather then the lyrics. I love the calmness of it ; 3. Noah and the Whale- The First Day of Spring (album as well)
"It's the first day of spring

And my life is starting over again
The trees grow, the river flows
And its water will wash away my sins
For I do believe that everyone has one chance
To fuck up their lives
But like a cut down tree, I will rise again
And I'll be bigger and stronger than ever before
For I'm still here hoping that one day you may come back
For I'm still here hoping that one day you may come back
There's a hope in every new seed
And every flower that grows upon the earth
And though I love you, and you know that
Well I no longer know what that's worth
But I'll come back to you in a year or so
And I'll rebuild, be ready to become
Oh the person, you believed in
Oh the person, that you used to love
For I'm still here hoping that one day you may come back" (I put the whole song in.... becuz this one i love becuz of the lyrics and i couldn't pick my favorite part :) I even used this song for an english assignment to represent transcendentalism) 4. Bright Eyes- The First Day of My Life  AND Land Locked Blues "And theres kids playing guns in the street, And ones pointing his tree branch at me, I put my hands up I say enough is enough, If you walk away, Ill walk away, And he shot me dead"
AND "Yours is the first face that I saw, Think I was blind before I met you ....... This is the first day of my life, Glad I didn't die before I met you,But now I don't care I could go anywhere with you, And I'd probably be happy" I think i love his voice a little too much.....
5. The Smiths- The Boy With The Thorn in His Side (up untill this point all the songs have been sorta folky and calm....and now the smiths! Yay!) "How can they look into my eyes, And still they don't believe me ? How can they hear me say those words, Still they don't believe me ? And if they don't believe me now, Will they ever believe me ?"6. Arcade Fire- Neon Bible "Take the poison of your age, Don't lick your fingers when you turn the page, What I know is what you know is right, In the city you see only light, It's the Neon Bible, the Neon Bible, Not much chance for survival" this song is super haunting sounding. That's why i like it so much.7. Katy Perry- Fireworks (Um.....heheheheheehheeheeee might as well be honest with myself. I listen to her way to much then i should. and i like it.) I'm not gonna add lyrics cuz i think we all know how it basically gos  8. The Decemberists- Summersong "Summer arrives with a length of lights, Summer blows away, And quietly gets swallowed by a wave, It gets swallowed by a wave"

Other songs i'm obsessed with currently but am not dedicated enough to the artist yet:

1. Ship of Promises- Villigers
2. I Feel It All- Feist
3. Tighten Up- The Black Keys
4. Two Way Monologue- Sondre Lerche
5. Friends- Luke Top

PS: I fially updated the blogger posting thingy! Now uploading pictures is not as difficult!!!!!!!!!!!
