I'm here because I was in the comic book

I was trying to find music I was in the mood to listen to as I wrote up assignments for my 518. (Let me decode that: poetry. I was writing poetry, okay?) Anyway, I made my through Death Cab for Cutie, The Shins, Eisley, Ben Folds (I did stay for awhile on "Don't Change Your Plans" and "Song for the Dumped"), and the soundtrack for Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham, which is what this post was actually going to be about. None of them were doing it for me, though. Until I finally found the answer. . . Josie and the Pussycats.

If you haven't seen this movie, you probably have more brain cells than me. But that doesn't change the fact that I love it. Love, love, love it. And the music is dreadful in a very wonderful way. Josie's voice was dubbed by the lead singer of Letters to Cleo. . . who is the group featured in 10 Things I Hate about You. This is like one big confessional, isn't it?

That movie is a triumph of dumb teenrock movies. It makes me happy.

I admire you for being able to listen to music while poeticizing. I want to be able to--Einstein said his theory of relativity was inspired by music--but I seem to be a little too skittish. The music gets my little heart all jazzed up and the poetry comes out like T.S. Eliot on crack. Utterly unreadable.

Good choice of homework music! Maybe I should give it a shot...
