Addiction II

The problem with tying to be a "collector" is that the stuff I want to collect is wanted by many other people who have a lot more money than I do. For example, I'd love to have this, but I've gone as high as I'm able to go, and I'm sure someone with more money is going to come along and snatch it up. And I got close to getting this one, but someone outbid me by $.50 right before the auction ended. That's really annoying. But it's things like this, this, and this that I'd really, really love to have, but it'll be a long time before I have the money to spend on things like these. Mainly, I like to collect Garbage cd's, Elastica cd's, Natalie Merchant/10,000 Maniacs cd's, and Broncos merchandise. Along the way I've picked up some Guttermouth and 10,000 Maniacs on vinyl. While in Massachusettes I picked up a Garbage single for the song "Milk". I was happy to find that. Which reminds me, I need to ask Theryn where the cd's we bought in Northampton are.

I think Rodney had a good idea on July 15th. I think I'll just quit school and blow all the money I earn at whatever job I get - since if I quit school I can't work where I work anymore. I won't worry about getting an education in the hopes of getting a better job so that one day I'll know what it's like to not be poor. Then I'll get a job that while it is a fun job, it's not going to get me anywhere - kind of what they call a "dead end job". Then I'll just do whatever I want to, when I want to and not give a damn about anything. Oh, wait - that sounds way too similar to what Avery's doing. Although, Avery was learning to work on VW busses, which could, in turn, mean learning to be a mechanic. Mechanics make a lot of money and can get a job virtually anywhere. But Avery's a hippie. And I hate hippies. So, I guess I'll just keep doing what I'm doing. Oh, but I must apologize to Rodney. I'm sorry, Rodney. I'm sorry that I'm not able to go out with as much as I did in high school. I'm sorry that I have responsiblities. And mostly, I'm sorry that I'm not there to help you relieve your boredom.

Now back to that collection thing. What is it that makes people want to collect stuff? I guess it could be a form of hero worship. The more stuff you buy of your favorite band's, the more money they get, and therefore the more stuff they can produce for you to buy. I think it's more than that, though. It's like by having this stuff, I am able to hold on to a little piece of the artist. Plus, there could always be something new, something you haven't heard yet and it's awesome when you find something like that. That's why I want that "In My Tribe" demo cd. "In My Tribe" is one of my favorite cd's ever, and to hear new old versions of the songs on it would be a blast.

On a random note, I shouldn't have eaten that whole bag of popcorn. Rodney and I are indeed going to the Social Chaos tour. That should be a blast. Tomorrow I'm going with Theryn and her family to Worlds of Fun. To me, Worlds of Fun isn't worlds of fun. I don't really like rollercoasters, and the main attraction at WoF is rollercoasters. I'm going to go, because I said I would. I'm going to have a good time because I want Theryn to have a good time and having a good time is fun. I was going to use this weekend to pack and catch up on homework but that doesn't look like it's going to happen. So, I'm over it. I'll deal. I'll have a good time this weekend and be fucked on Monday. Hey - just like during regular classes!

As you might have noticed, I added some webrings to my page. I've still not been added to Open Pages, so I think sometime soon I'm going to email them and see what's up. I'll do it from my shell account, which I can't access here. Anyway, take a look at some of the pages on the rings if you will. There's a lot of interesting stuff out there.

Shameless self-promotion, eh?
