I swear Sounds is like taking over my life. It's infiltrated every part of my consciousness. I just can't escape that damn class and everything that we're being forced to understand and see from it. Today, I couldn't help but wonder why I'm buying a Kimeru CD when CDs are obviously so passe? MP3 people, it's the MP3 now!

And I just read a paper on the radio and nostalgia and now I can't help but think of it as I listen to Kimeru.

For the last two or three days, I've been a bit preoccupied with Road of Major and SunSet Switch. Do you how it's like when you love a couple of songs so completely and fully that you play them over and over and over again and days later, it's not like you don't like the songs any more and when you hear them you still go "damn, that is a good song" but you're still just a bit tired of them?

That's how I feel now.

So I went back and am now listening to Kimeru. He's such a balm for the senses. It's like he soothes your restlessness and assures your calmness. It's definitely nostalgia -- all of the old feelings I've felt for Kimeru and have been brought about from previous listenings of his songs are all rushing back to me and filling me with this content feeling. No matter what, Kimeru was a bit part of my life for the last few years and I've enjoyed the ride so much that his songs can't help but bring up good thoughts and feelings. Right now I'm smiling because it's just so good to be listening to Kimeru again.

How this relates to the radio and nostalgia article was that Jo Tacchi argued that nostalgia in the modern sense does not adequately describe the phenomenon people experience while listening to the radio because it grounds the subject in the past and assumes it can't influence the present because of it makes you long for the past. Instead, the Greek (or was it Roman?) definition of nostalgia is more as though about how the past influences the present and therefore connects with future.

I think this is true for Kimeru. While in some ways I do long for the days where I was completely Kimeru crazy all the time, I think I've moved on to a bit more of a mature relationship (though it's definitely debatable because I definitely still get Kimeru crazy at times) and through experiencing these past feelings via his songs in the present time, I am only more able to appreciate the entire story. The past feelings influences my present state of being and in turn, allows me to become a better person with time.

:)

And now I feel very goofy. This is what MAP courses do to you at 4 AM in the morning.

edit x1: Oh, and I swear, Last.fm is like the new Facebook for me. It's absolutely crazy how much I obsess about it now.

One of these days it'll be "I Look at My Last.fm Statistics Late at Night Instead of Studying" instead, lol.

Those who don't get it -- well, you really had to have been into the whole Facebook craze...

Oh my god... Ow, ow, ow, ow, OWWWW!!! God what is this?! Owwwww...!!! I am currently being assulted by the worst headache ever around my left temple. God, pain, pain!!! Maybe I should I go to sleep now? It just suddenly started too and god, it hurts to keep my eyes open...

Damn, I think it's starting up on the other side of my head too... Shit. I'm going to bed. Laying down has to help, right? I'm praying it's just lack of sleep, even though I took a three hour nap today...

I ♥ Eggs

Last week it was omelette crazy. Today, it's egg sandwiches. God, I forgot how I much I love egg sandwiches. Not egg salad because that has always turned me a bit green, but fried egg sandwiches. And they're so convenient. Just an egg, some lectuce and mayo. Of course I like ketchup on all my sandwiches regardless and I placed a couple thin slices on ham on it too but that's only to kick it up a notch.

Right now I'm enjoying my egg sandwich to its fullest and having a kiwi flavored Ramune. Surprisingly, Kiwi Ramune isn't that bad. It's not exactly the best thing to go with my egg sandwich but I'm thirsty and in a pinch so...

Today it's work work work. I must make good progress on my lab reports or else I'm so incredibly screwed. So work for me today. Yay.

I just love Eyeshield 21.

I really do. Right I'm in one of those moments where you can't help but smile because everything in the world is aligned just right and everything is perfect! ^^

I'm happy! Saizen released a new episode of Eyeshield today and I got to hear the new OP and ED for the first time! Innocence by 20th Century is just sooo good! I was only able to find the short version of the song though... That does bring me down a bit but at least it's something. I would be even more heartbroken if I didn't have anything at all...

It's really a great song... I love their voices and I love song... They seem somewhat familiar so I wonder if I've heard some of their songs before...

And GOAL by Arashiro Beni is pretty good too. I just love her voice! I didn't like Step fro Major that much but it was an okay song too... Cherish from her latest single though is absolutely beautiful though. I can't believe all this time I thought Cherish was the 3rd ED! I mean usually the single name is the name of the track but with another track with a name like "GOAL," how could I have thought otherwise?

Right now I'm in a hunt for the song "FARAWAY" by Paradise GO!! GO!! which is the 2nd ED for Major. I hadn't realized that I didn't have it in my collection and now I'm trying to find it... Somehow, I think it's going to be as difficult as finding Kokoroe...

But I'm enjoying Innocence a bit too much to really care and I've found Stoptazmo so I'm getting all the chapters of Eyeshield 21 that I lack too. It's definitely slow going but I have presistence and determination so I don't really mind. Over all, it's a good moment in my life. :)
