The music video for Captain Ahab's song "U Want Me" is quite possibly the greatest thing I have ever seen. I'm not even remotely kidding. I'm particularly fond of the squirting blood. (Another fantastic video: Hustler by Simian Mobile Disco. Finally, an answer to the question that has haunted a generation--what really happens when a group of girls have a sleepover?)

I have to do my Russian homework & then study like a mofo for my French test. The test itself features two essay questions (on Portrait de Nestor and Arsène Lupin) and 10 word definitions (from a list of 40 words). The definitions have to be as close to identical to dictionary definitions as possible, and we also need to include synonyms. It's going to be a bitch. I'm probably going to die.

In other news, I really wish I were in Russia and/or France right now. Dammit, college, why can't you hurry the fuck up already and let me graduate? Jeez.

and i'm off to make my fortune in a big old world
and a nation of city fathers couldn't stop me
and you'll soon forget me if you got any sense
in your sleep head
Jeremy Warmsley - Dirty Blue Jeans

and if you see this world as ugly and thin
then you'll be so cruel to the touch, you'll lose the body you're in
to a land of angry soil, that swallows boys and coughs up men
Voxtrot - Mothers, Sisters, Daughters & Wives

i'm sick of sucking on second hand air
Jeremy Warmsley - Dirty Blue Jeans

don't follow the crowd
for once
carry yourself
Jacob Golden - Carry Yourself

i won't come home 'til after
i've shaken hands with native lands
and kissed the old friends back there
'cos i wanted water
Ambulance LTD - Swim

maybe the reason we're so uninspired
'cos we're hours late and our bodies are tired
i think everybody here can agree
that the party ain't great 'cos the booze is free
no, free spirits ain't setting no one's spirit free
The Rapture - Whoo! Alright-Yeah... Uh Huh

i don't wanna live here no more
i don't wanna stay
ain't gonna spend the rest of my life
quietly fading away
Alan Parsons Project - Games People Play

set sail from sense, bring all our young
set sail from where we once begun
Klaxons - Golden Skans
(is it even remotely surprising that I'd mention one of their tracks?)

Some lyrics that don't fit how I've been feeling, but are damn good regardless:

this kind of love is like das kapital
i know who wrote it, often quote it, never read it all
this kind of love is like the red brigade
what was so scary once is now a little bit quaint
Maxi Geil! & Playcolt - Making Love In The Sunshine

people don't dance no more (what!)
they just stand there like this (that's right!)
they cross their arms, and stare you down
and drink and moan and diss (okay now!)
The Rapture - Whoo! Alright-Yeah... Uh Huh
