Before the deep shit, Avenged Sevenfold has landed a spot in heavy rotation, thanks to Doug’s help. He called it, “an acquired taste”, with which I agree. But now that I’ve acquired the taste, that’s a tasty meatball.
Back in January (on my ex-gf’s birthday, ironically) I suggested that people who don’t suck download the MP3 song “The Heart and the Shape” by 36 Crazyfists. The album, “A Snow Capped Romance” came out last Tuesday, and I finally bought it today.
Side note: BestBuy sucks, and Tower Records sucks… at least Tower had the motherfucker on the rack.
Since I downloaded “The Heart and the Shape”, every day that I’ve been in front of one of my Macs–here at home or at work–I’ll spin up iTunes, and it’s the first song to wake me. If the CD’s title isn’t enough: “A Snow Capped Romance”, tonight I finally got the opportunity to read the lyrics of the one song that rises to greet me almost daily. Poignantly:
And, so I grey the heart and the shape.
That look that you gave, staring.
At empty, help me back to awake.
I know it’s completely ghey to attempt to apply some random songwriter’s lyrics to your own life. It almost qualifies as fucking pathetic, really.
But, I’ve got to stop greying and help myself back to awake.
