Is God In Show Business Too?

I love that line. It's from the song Lucifer's Flowers by My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult. If you ever get a chance, you should listen to that song -- perfectly sums things up.

I would like to get a big, rocking, plasma screen with a killer surround sound and the first video to be played to break it in would be Marilyn Manson's version of Personal Jesus. While Depeche Mode did a great job on the original, something about MM's version is just more raw and to the core -- I like that video.

I've officially made the decision - I absolutely want to move. Now the catch is to find the perfect place - I have it narrowed down to the building but I want a great view. The best thing is that I would literally be able to walk out the front door on to McKinney Avenue.

There's something very alluring to just being right in the midst of things, jumping on the trolley to get to the big book store down the street or West Village & the Magnolia Theater. Or the lovely Nikita where my favourite toast is painted on the wall behind the bar -- "To the beauty of our horses and the strength of our women."

Where I live now there is just too much time to think - and that's driving me round the bend. Every night I have to pop Tylenol PM to get my mind to chill - and even then I only get a few hours sleep.

I find myself slowly sliding towards my former ways - that's not necessarily a bad thing though. I was a bit more reckless, more private yet more outgoing -- a contradiction I know. But it is easily pulled off by keeping people talking about themselves and saying little about yourself.

I'm finally listening to rain on the windows for the first time in weeks -- I love the rain.
