Super glue, anyone?

I still haven't gotten any super glue. Now even the rubber button thing has fallen off. When I type a "T" I'm just hitting naked metal. Is this bad for my computer? My friends think it's funny.

Today I read In Our Time, by Ernest Hemingway. I really like his writing style. I could clearly see locations and understand characters, but there was no excess of language. I guess that's what you always hear about Hemingway. Short, declarative sentences. But the declarative sentences conveyed so much. It made me want to try writing something again.

I've been spending most of my free time looking for Japanese music. It's strange. I used to think lyrics were so important, and now I understand very little and yet I am still able to love the songs. So what is it then that's appealing? Apart from the fact I'm studying Japanese and every time I make out a word or *gasp* complete sentence it's incredibly exciting? How different from the rhapsodizing over lyrics that drew me to Green Day and American Idiot.

My cousin got tickets to a MCR concert. I'm thinking about going. I don't listen to MCR, but he says he'll make me a CD. It could be fun times, right?

Hi hi! Sorry about zee late.

I think I will go. My roommate type person just decided she likes MCR, specifically their new album, so I've been listening to a fair amount. It's good and I bet the concert will be cool. I mean, they love Green Day, I love Green Day... there's gotta be some solidarity just from that.

I still leave out the T's occasionally. Like that T just now in still, or all those in that... gotta retype everything. Dang that was a lot of T's. And they just keep coming! Oh! Coming has no T's!

Naked metal is so going to be my band name. When we make it big, we'll have an interesting story. Well, maybe not interesting, but there will be a story! And you'll be in it!

I read this before and I forgot to comment, for which I apologize.

Story of my life. I still feel rather absurdly proud of myself when I can actually make a coherent sentence. My Japanese is that sad.

I believe I need to send you some more MP3s. You'll have to remind me what I sent to you before, I'm afraid I don't have any sort of "sent" records for MediaMax.

Oh my goodness thank you but don't feel bad about lack of commenting or late commenting. I understand about not being able to check livejournal everyday, or not being able to collect thoughts to form a coherent comment right off the bat, or any of the varied RL concerns that cut into fandom... yes so no worries. Comments are appreciated whenever they come.

I'm still really at the "I know that word!" stage when it comes to listening to music. Actually sentences only come in a flash of "Oh whoa I think I know all those words and could piece together a maybe-meaning from them". Yeah, so....

I've been listening to tons and tons and tons of Japanese Music. I've been meaning to make a post, and thank you again for all the awesome, awesome music. I've been listening to much Gackt and Hyde, but lately I've been branching out a bit too. Any recommendations / MP3s you have would be awesome and much appreciated, especially if they fit into the sentence _________ 's sound is a lot like Gackt/Hyde... and I still haven't listened to enough l'arc~en~ciel. Mostly I find I like male vocals with rock/poppy sounds.

I've picked up some music I'd be happy to share if you're interested. You've been so generous I'd like to give something back :)
