The World is Full of Crashing Bores



Seems this album has come up alot lately, see the title might be Mozzer but as i was listening to this on my way home from the bar tonight, a night cut short by the realization that i'd rather be home with the sleeping boyos than hanging out in hipster bars and listening to the inanity of people who think they're interesting but they are not...but bear with me, i'm a bit fucked, the list of substances i put in my system is 3, 4 if you count nicotine and i went to a good friends and watched the hockey game and had a conversation with another good friend, a guy who i used to have brilliant conversations with and tonight was like the old days, when you realize the friend you had when you were doing all kinds of shit that could get you killed or thrown in jail  had your back still does, a beautiful thing really, an epiphany that we've grown up but still really give a shit about each other after years of ups and downs, a beautiful thing to know that you've made friends who care that much but i digress and shouldn't even be typing in this state, but let me get back to the point, see this was supposed to be short but how often do you get to see a Kono who's not completely on top of his game? anyway the first part of the night was great but then the game ended and i went to the bar, then shit just went progressively downhill, don't get me wrong there was some good people there but some people just show up and want to whine about how they don't get laid or don't have a girlfriend or about how tough the job is or how they're broke and really i don't give a shit, don't bring me down maaaaan, basically you just make me want to finish my beer and bee-line it home, which is what i did, stopping to get my boyos a surprise treat for breakfast, to go back a couple sentences i've never been one for the pissers and moaners and the older i get the less patience i have and what's worse is these people aren't kids anymore they are supposedly fully formed adults, ah fuck it, i'm tired and going to bed, i should hit delete but sometimes one has to rip off a post while under the influence right?  and this song? basically sums up how i feel about shit in general a good portion of the time.

always a good idea to vent your spleen every now and then... sitting in the bars, listening to the conversations? i consider it just bad radio.

i have a lot of friends. but there are about five that i trust with my life. who know me well. who know how to drunk-proof me when they drag my blacked-out ass home...

I cannot STAND pissers and moaners, especially when they're adults. This is probably really shitty to admit, but I have a friend with severe depression, and I've totally distanced myself from him, because I can't DEAL with the downer conversations. I just can't. He does nothing and whines about it, but whines about how he can't get the motivation, and whines about the lack of females and sex but how can you get any if you never meet anyone or go anywhere? It's a cyclical cycle of sheer SUCK, and it ends up depressing ME, so I steer clear.

I can only hit the bars when I'm on holiday. how do you get yourself up again in the morning Kono?

When I was younger, my girlfriend and I used to whine all the time. Bad. So bad, our friends called us the Whiner Sisters. The good part is no one else had to hear it because we had each other to bounce off of.
Bars are made for whiners. I mean, are you going to talk rocket science when you can hardly hear each other. Really!

What, with a title like that and we don't get the Smiths?

Kiddin' - Just getting my whine in. ;)

I don't miss the bar scene. I still like the bar, but a different scene, quieter, no whiners, only wine.

I'm going to iTunes to get spiritualized...

Take it from me, pal, the older the boyos get, the more time you're going to want to spend with them (vs. the bores in the bar). The enjoyment increases precipitously until they're teenagers, at which time there's a momentary dip in the festivities. At some point it'll dissolve into some "what I'd really like, dad, is to borrow the car keys. See you later. Can I have them please?" shit so you better get your arms around it while you still can.

Daisy- sometimes the conversations i overhear at bars keep me laughing for days, example, "i like 80's music, you know i lived through part of it" guy looks at young kid, really? when were you born? "in 87".

Sybil- yeah it was just one guy and he couldn't stop moaning about why girls don't like him, i coulda told him why but he's an alright guy when his diapers not wet.

Nurse- Not only do i do it but i do it with two young boyos, basically it's like second nature at this point and i've learned exactly what to expect the next morning by what i've done the night before.

RJ- these hipster bars are frequent aren't to bad, unless you go upstairs where the dj's are or if there is a band playing, otherwise you can hear the jukebox music and still have a conversation.

Jayne- i like my bars, just depends on the night, weekends are always a crapshoot, and yes Spiritualized are brilliant, new album on the 17th of this month.

UB- i still have a good time in the bars, know alot of artist and musician types and the conversations can be great, otherwise i keep to myself and drink, still can't shake the streets after all these years, still i know what's coming... and how did i know someone would quote Harry Chapin?
