midnite ramblings

You live like this, sheltered, in a delicate world, and you believe you are living. Then you read a book… or you take a trip… and you discover that you are not living, that you are hibernating. The symptoms of hibernating are easily detectable: first, restlessness. The second symptom (when hibernating becomes dangerous and might generate into death): absence of pleasure. That is all. It appears like an innocuous illness. Monotony, boredom, death. Millions live like this (or die like this) without knowing it. They work in offices. They drive a car. They picnic with their families. They raise children. And then some shock treatment takes place, a person, a book, a song, and it awakens them and saves them from death. Some never awaken.” [Anais Nin]

during the year of 1995, radiohead delivered their second album *the bends* and shared in what would make them today known as one of those very special bands. they were just beginning the road to success… and thom’s pure voice truly goes to beautifully prove that from this raw quality performance of just him and jonny acoustically at the cat’s paw radio studios in atlanta, ga.

    To more midnite ramblings… often the best time to ramble: it’s a time between time that can produce words that mean something. Happy New Year D.x

    what a beautiful, insightful quote. i agree with so much of it. only i think sometimes the awakening only points out what you can’t have, or what you’ve lost, and that’s almost worse somehow. *sigh*

  4. music is art

    thankyou 🙂 street spirit is working fine, a lil distortion in the first few seconds but once the vocals begin, its all good. hope it works ok for you..
