emotions seriously @ 08:41 pm

I want to fill Tom's shuffle the rest of the way with indie folk country sad ballads

Elliot smith
Lloyd Cole
stephin Merritt

of course

people who are able to wield emotions so deftly
do they take them seriously?
as they play with them...
it's a game
such heart-wrenching feelings

of course
that is why I should be writing pop songs
to play with emotions

obviously I take emotions too seriously
terrified by them
not exactly paralyzed
but made insane

but not to numb out to them
to delve into them and wield them

just playing
making art
just playing

Get Townes van Zandt for more of a country edge (hope I've spelled his name properly).

I love Nick Drake too. Sad music actually makes me happy.

PS. Today (August 6) is Elliott's birthday. He was murdered in Oct. of 2003 (it was made to look like a suicide).
