Music Monday: Tonight, Tonight

Today is officially the day I stop counting them because it doesn't make sense to me anymore. And I've been thinking lately, about stuff. About me, obviously. mememe. Also, it's March now.


Whenever I hear the beginning of this song on the radio I think it's Disarm, which's strange 'cause they're completely different. Except for the violin part.

I'd also like to include Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness, the song that precedes Tonight, Tonight on the album.

What always got me was the 'Infinite Sadness' part. Infinite. Like 'The Perks of Being a Wallflower' infinite. Maybe we'll get there one day. It seems unlikely but we keep going anyways and I try not to wonder why.

Does anybody else think that Billy Corgan has a weird voice? I do. In any other kind of music I don't think I would like it. But it's the Smashing Pumpkins, and I love them.

andandand he says "the more you change the less you feel". Agree or disagree? I disagree. The more I change the more I feel. But I guess he's got an interesting point, maybe he means the more you change the more confused you are. I am very confused, often.

Also - Monday unofficially is sweatpants day. I want Free City sweatpants. I want their new shoes. And all their clothes, but who the fuck could afford that shit? Besides Kate Moennig, obvs.

Sorry this post is all over the place. Actually, I'm not sorry. I'm just saying.

"We'll crucify the insincere tonight
We'll make things right, we'll feel it all tonight
We'll find a way to offer up the night, tonight
The indescribable moments of your life tonight
The impossible is possible tonight
Believe in me, as I believe in you.. Tonight."
- The Smashing Pumpkins "Tonight, Tonight"

Definitely the more I changed, the more I felt. But that was the direction I was going in.

Is "The Perks of Being a Wallflower" very good, I was recommended it once. But I haven't read any fiction in a long while.

Also, I think I might have started a blog. Or it might lie there discarded.

Yes, I loved The Perks of Being a Wallflower. It's pretty short and easy to read so you'd probably go through it in a day or two but I think it captures some of that teenage angst which is why it resonates with "young adults" so much. Anyways I have a copy if you're interested in borrowing it!

And I will defs read your blog!

Okay, well one, it turns out the blog did go derelict lol.

I read another post where you mentioned The Perks of Being a Wallflower and I came back to this somehow. I'll give up my long abstinence from real fiction for it.. but! i propose a book swap lol. But I'm going to keep my book a secret. Also, the only way I'll see your answer is if you email it to me lol,
