oh, my fuck.

So I'm sitting here at the Lyric (www.lyrictheatrela.com), minding my own business and reading the Onion (which we can get for the low-low price of free.99 here in California) when I read the following passage in a review of Tearing Down the Wall of Sound: The Rise and Fall of Phil Spector - which, could we think of a more obvious title? but anyway - when I read the following passage. Read it and tell me why I'm having an aenurysm. First with the right answer gets a prize*.

Spector's hatred of a pop world that had passed him by lies an almost pathological desire for love that, to paraphrase a singer strongly influenced by Spector's melodramatic "little symphonies for the kids," could easily have turned murderous.


I'm adding on to this entry because I don't have enough to say to justify starting a whole new one...

I went to a work meeting of Kyle's (with the theatre, not Whole Foods) today and it was fucking boring. The last year of my life has really hammered home that I've been very alone recently. All the people I hang out with are friends of Kyle's. They're nice and everything, but they're people that would take his side if we ever had a major argument or problem. Not to mention the fact that if I get close with any of them, I'd feel weird going out with one of them without Kyle because that would be like stealing a friend, wouldn't it? I mean...wouldn't it? Fucking interpersonal relationships. We should do away with them altogether.

*Not really, since I'm giving you the answer in my tabs section. Nice try though!

Also, what is the tabs section?

(this is Lauren, by the by...I don't know why I'm coming up as "lulu," although that is what John's mom calls me.

Lauren, the tabs section is the group of blue keywords at the bottom of each page which kind of gives the readers an idea of what the entry was about. Also, you can click on each word and every other entry that's related by that word will pop up. Pretty cool!

Hey you, it'll take some time, but you shouldn't feel uncomfortable about hanging out with them when Kyle's not around. I promise you is not friend-stealing!
