i'm a rabbit in your headlights

today i woke up smelling hydrogen peroxide.

i checked my email today. a long one came from poshgurl1. i replied a shit load of words to her, and hit the "send" button. normally when i email people i will send the message back to my account too, just to see how it turns out like. and i checked this one, whe whole email was a blank. no words, zero, zip, nada. i spent half an hour typing that email, and nothing turned out at the end. everything got erased.

now that is a good reason to be depressed about.

i am back to my "radiohead mood" since i heard my iron lung ep for the first time two nights ago. the album's pretty haunting. yesterday i ended up on my electone seat, figuring out the chords for the song "punchdrunk lovesick singalong". i managed to. whoo hoo! my hearing is excellente!

that song reminded me of a collaboration thom yorke did for UNKLE. they released a single called "rabbit in your headlights". i remember watching the video on "senor moby's house of music", i think it's one of the best videos i've ever seen. a man wearing a coat walking in the middle of a tunnel and getting hit by cars. he gets up and starts walking again. gets hit again by a huge car. gets up and starts walking again. rolled over by a car, tore all his clothes from all the accidents, but never gives up. he walks again shirtless until the end of the video. it was excellent. now that's my kind of optimism.

i love the lyrics too.

"if you're frightened of dying and then you hold on
you'll see devils tearing your life away
but, if you've made your peace
then the devils are really angels
freeing you from the earth...from the earth"

it's like reading thom yorke's version of the bible.
lovely. just lovely.
