I got a piece of mail today.
It was from someone I don't know out in California who was apparently a good friend of Tom. He had this... letter... a letter Tom was writing to me. Well, had written, but had not mailed that was shoved in a notebook that was left at this guy's house.
He's spent the months since Tom's death debating out wether or not to send it to me and he finally did.
It's just lyrics.
Just lyrics to a song that I happen to have listened to this morning and again this afternoon and now, here it is in my mail, in Tom's handwriting. And Tom's handwriting wrote out all the words and told me that it's soooo me. And Tom's handwriting said that this isn't meant in the bad way that I may take it. Tom's handwriting says that Tom loves me a lot. Tom's handwriting says Tom is coming to see me at the end of March and that we will in engage in the end all, be all, big mamba jamba, water gun throwdown to end all throwdowns.
And that he will kick my ass.

Well, Tom.. you're died instead didn't you?
And now your body is in a little jar type thing in Robert's suitcase.
And you're just dead.

But Tom's handwriting fails to mention that.
Tom's handwriting says "love love love love love and a kick in the butt" and signs Tom's name.

And this song is so much more appropriate for him, than for me.
fuckin pink floyd.

Shine on you crazy diamond.

Remember when you were young, you shone like the sun
Shine on you crazy diamond
Now there's a look in your eyes, like black holes in the sky
Shine on you crazy diamond
You were caught in the cross-fire of childhood and
stardom, blown on the steel breeze
Come on you target for far away laughter, come on you
stranger, you legend, you martyr, and shine!
You reached for the secret too soon,
You cried for the moon
Shine on your crazy diamond
Threatened by shadows at night, and exposed in the light
Shine on you crazy diamond
Well you wore out your welcome with random precision
Rode on the steel breeze
Come on you raver, you seer of visions, come on you
painter, you piper, you prisoner, and shine!

  • Oh LJ...

    I think I need to remember to keep the LJ open in the background. Download another client for it and actually run the thing. Maybe that will increase…
