Me, I Ain't Going Anywhere, Just Sit and Watch the Sun Come Up, I Like it Here

My old buddy, Sibyl, from this evening.

My old buddy, Nick Cave, from his latest masterpiece of a record, "Dig!!! Lazarus Dig!!!"


"Albert goes west, he crossed the vast indifferent deserts of Arizona, oh yeah
He had a psychotic episode on a dude ranch that involved a bottle of ammonia
Henry, he went south and lost his way deep in the weeping forests of Le Vulva
He grew so wan, he grew so sick, he ended up in a bungalow sucking a revolver

The light upon your rainy streets offers many reflections
I won't be held responsible for my actions

Bobby, he goes north, then he goes east, then over to New Hampshire
Bobby is a cautious man, he walked into a Concord dive to drink a beer


Do you wanna dance?
Yeah, do you wanna move?
Yeah, do you wanna dance?
Do you wanna groove?

I said this world is full of endless abstractions
I won't be held responsible for my actions

Me, I ain't going anywhere, just sit and watch the sun come up, I like it here
I watch the people go ticking past, go hey hey hey, you know I gotta say I like it here

All right.

Sha la-la-la, sha la-la-la, sha la-la-la-la-la-la
Sha-la-la-la, sha la-la-la, sha la-la-la-la-la-la"

Endless abstractions sort of week. Had a hell of an evening with Chip last night (thanks Marko and Chris!). Dropped him off at Stacy's this morning for the "tornado shoot." Lauren is coming in tomorrow as is Sarah.

I wish my baby were here, too.
