aw shit. you know how you can get obsessed with something, say a certain song, and listen to it over and over again, you know, like the oingo boingo tune one post back. well, i don't know, but i've watched that video close to a dozen times now. why? beats me. tho boingo is not my favorite band i've always admired danny elfman, and the band boingo has about a cd's worth of songs that are very good.

perhaps it's something to do with that passage of time. that i saw boingo in i think 1990 at the concord pavilion. a fantastic show. and that i can't believe nearly 18 years have gone past. also, did a little research and found that that video is culled from boingo's farewell concert in 1995. you get the picture, music, time passing, etc. etc. not sadness, but surprise and puzzlement that time goes so very quickly. the only comfort i take is that nothing stays gold forever, ponyboy. everybody and everything ages. so hang on, and try to enjoy the ride.

I am a bit irritated that such a big online journal would mispell Kitasono Katsue's name.

point taken. names are i think incredibly important. surely i don't think i'm the only one who obsesses about names, my own and the names of others. and of course when i place my name against the some of the euphonious names of writers i admire mine sounds like the thud of a dropped brick.
