Ten

In true lounge fashion yesterday was 10 years to the day of the first post i ever hit publish on, of course being a fucking stoner i missed it, well maybe not missed it i just thought it was the 17th, maybe i was distracted in the last days of the Republic by the gigantic shit show that i can't seem to get away from... or maybe i was just really really high... i guess a lot has changed and a lot has stayed the same over the last decade in my own cold little corner of Cyberia, fuck if i know, it's been a right laugh and it entertains me so i guess i'll just keep doing whatever it is here i do, i have no delusions of grandeur, i've never tried to win an award or expand my "brand" or whatever the fuck it is that goes on here with these things, apparently there's a whole cottage industry and conferences and what not, i don't understand it or pretend to want to, i prefer the solitude and some good tunes, fucking people get on my tits if you know what i mean, and so without much (or more correctly no) fanfare we're a decade in, the lounge roughly six months younger than the I-mac and 2 years and change older than Nick Disaster, how's that for perspective old man, i've kicked old habits and started new ones and kicked those and quit smoking cigs and learned how to booze and discovered what the kids call vaporizers and though i could go on i won't, it's the lounge for fucking christ sake, we've never tried that hard and we're not about to start now dammit... and so i'm gonna pour a Guinness and have a toke, ten years of this shit, i shake my head, i must be a fucking nutter...

Blow out your candles. Make a wish. Just wait until the boyos are old enough to read this. That'll learn 'em.

cyberia is getting colder (hotter) and thicker (alienating) and atomizing (ubiquitous) by the day.

thank you for keeping the lights on and the jukebox playing at one place down the same street and through the old door where none of that shit even remotely matters.

HTFY!!!

Good attitude, although as I have very little money coming in, someone was urging me to at least get my blog in some sort of shape so that I could hawk it round publishers. Oh boy, the number of friends I'd lose though!

Exile- Like Mark Twain the boyos will be allowed to read this after their old man's demise... i don't think i want to answer all the questions, i write stuff for the on the side anyway haha!!

Kid- Kid you know you have your own seat at this here joint that only you're allowed to sit in, cheers brother.

Looby- just tell those friends they're all about to get their 15 minutes... and why not? you spin good yarns and that's what it's all about innit? and thanks for reading this non-sense i sporadically post...

Twin- like Sisyphus i roll that rock up the hill and then watch it roll back down again, i don't know who's dumber? the rock or the roller... thanks for stopping by all these years ;)

Hey, why the Pavement track? I read the post twice looking for the connection. Good song though. And good album."I am not one half of the problem." We've been at this blogging thing around the same time. I must be around 12 years now. Holy balls.

Kono said...

Dr. Noisewater- there is no connection really other than the slacker ethos espoused by Mr. Malkmus (back then) and myself (to this day), what i refer to as an intellectual non-chalance, sorta sums up the lounge i guess... and it's one of my all-time favorite songs.
