What Goes On In Your Head

Last night I watched the Emmys. So sue me. Or judge me from afar.

One thing I noticed is that Claire Danes doesn’t much look like Claire Danes. That is to say, Claire Danes (the woman trying to revive her career) doesn’t much remind me of Claire Danes (the girl from My So Called Life). Possibilities of plastic surgery aside, I’ve met people that don’t really resemble themselves throughout much of their lives. But I’ve also met people who look similar from cradle to coffin.

I wonder how our brains handle this. It’s easy enough to slot a certain person into a category (this is “Dan” because he looks like “Dan”), but how does a brain handle someone in the category of “Dan” who doesn’t really look like “Dan”? If someone’s looks change through their life, or they have plastic surgery, or they have facial reconstructive surgery, how do we really see that person?

I don’t know if maybe this changes with how close to you are to that person. It might be that I’m not overly familiar with Claire Danes, but whenever anyone said “Claire Danes” my brain said, “That’s not Claire Danes!”

So I wonder: If Laura (my wife, and a very attractive woman) were somehow damaged and had to have reconstructive surgery that made her only vaguely resemble herself, how would my brain react? And if I reacted the same way to Laura, how long would it take for my brain to put her back in her category?

Songs

I’m going to dump some half-baked bits of songs here. They’re not really anythings yet.

Camera

What the camera sees
it isn’t me
it isn’t really me

I’ll fill the details in
with all the things
that maybe you should know

It’s annotated and cross-referenced
it’s encyclopaedic
it’s irrelevant

I am more than a collection of parts
I am more a shadow in a cave
I am more than a soul to be saved

Waking Up

I keep waking up broken
Don’t know what happened to me in the dark
I lost another memory
Can’t keep going with so many missing parts

But you are on the breeze
As if to say do you remember me
I can’t forget the way you move
You still move inside of me
I do, I do, I do remember you

Fallen Cathedral

In this great fallen cathedral
we are holding a bazaar
You can find anything
your heart desires

From the hearts of broken people
to the ever-moving star
That marks the place

She Always Shoots You Down

I was flying halfway to the moon
told the satellites I’d find her soon
but the hidden guns were all I found
love, she always shoots you down
love, she shoots you down

I was skipping rungs up two by two
for a better life in navy blue
but the dirt I hit was army brown
love, she always shoots you down
love, she shoots you down

Knowing

As it turns out, you never get to know
except a few things, but fewer than you knew
I guess you get old and leave here for a while
and then you come back when it has been made new

I know that’s not what you wanted to hear
that I can’t take it’s measure
but in the end perhaps you’ll find that it’s clear
in your golden forever

Backwards

come on come on
everybody’s wrong
everybody’s song
is playing backwards

sleeping dogs lie
curled up in the sky
they never wonder why
it’s running backwards

I could learn a thing or two
absent in epiphany
we could let it work itself
out

let’s build a wall
against the empty squall
of doomsday prophets all
who got it backward

nothing will end
at least of what can bend
and let me tell you, friend
I’m bending backward

I could learn a thing or two
absent in epiphany
we could let it work itself
out

Yellow Bird

in the beginning was a word
it was something that you heard
on the street

it kept on ringing in your head
a little yellow bird that said
move your feet

these movements
you didn’t study
but your body
knows

these moments
you can’t remember
but your body
knows

Hold On

You can hold on to anything that you want to.
As long as it keeps you afloat you’re okay.
As long as it keeps your head above water.
As long as it keeps you sane for the day.

Camera II

Camera o camera what do you see
all these backwards upside down pictures of me
I keep on hiding but you’ve already got
enough to put me in a box

I will be fine
in retrospect
what will we find
in retrospect
I will be fine

Black Balloon

This song is like a black balloon
elephant cloud in the middle of the room
everyone can hear the tune
they open windows to dissipate the gloom

Static

Bury it alive. Listen to the beat
slowly winding down, it’s going away.
Life is analog. It’s not just on or off.
It comes and it goes, it comes and goes.

Your head is a radio
Your heart is an antenna
You feel like you’re static
You feel like your dilemma

Sky Falls

The sky is falling down
like is always has
it’s falling down around
our shoulders

When it does we will
finally catch a glimpse
of all the planets in
our solar system

It’s not a bad thing
we never learned to breathe
the way we should

Valuable

You have walked the twenty blocks to where
all the people seem put together
patched up and sewn together so well
where all your stuffing’s coming out.

You’ve been on a train to nowhere
so long you can’t recall solid ground
can’t remember paying for it
in blood and tears, in blood and years

but you’re more valuable
than diamonds and gold
so why do you keep saying

I’ve got nothing that you should want to have
I’ve got nothing but broken pieces
I’ve got nothing but the words you said
I love you I love you I love you
You keep begging for salvation
but it never seems to find you out
hidden in plain sight you are
everywhere and nowhere at once

there is happiness in chemicals
happiness you trade for dollar bills
and all the other fantasies
you’ve tried them all

Should

Proud of the scars?
Gotten this far.
Should be.

Memories decay.
Better that way.
Should be.

Waking up and this isn’t
waking up and thing isn’t
waking up and this isn’t
home. Should be.

Hometown Girl Makes Good

What are you looking for?
Will you know it when you see it, finally?
With your foot in the door
to a place I have left behind me

Oh I, Oh I would tell you if I could
If you could be the hometown girl makes good

Could you give me a clue?
Maybe just the room or weapon.
Something to misconstrue,
connecting dots that never happened.

Oh I, Oh I would tell you if I could
Then you could be hometown girl makes good

Maybe no-one has the key to it.
Maybe no-one really knows.
Maybe we’re all in the same house
lighting matches as we go.

Lies

in an old email
in a lost message
there you’ll find it
fresh as ever

or frozen solid
bones of granite
tell the story
artful as ever

It’s all lies
yeah you know
yeah you know
it’s all lies
it’s all lies

buried in a closet
bolts of hidden logic
sewn to be forgotten
quick as ever

a better plotline
motive and design
a novel concept
it fits together

25 (More) Facts About Me

Have you plumbed the depths of my narcissism?

  1. I don’t eat fish. I watched a documentary once about what we’re doing to the oceans, and that put me off fish forever. The way we “harvest” fish is like burning down an entire forest just to capture a few birds.
  2. I think skepticism is easier than faith for me. I don’t think this is true for everyone.
  3. I would rather live in Europe than Canada. Specifically I’d rather live in Germany. I could use all the skills I have in the manufacturing sector there, and get paid better, and have more time off. I’d also settle for New Zealand or Chile.
  4. I’ve played golf only once in my life. I’m pretty sure I’d enjoy golf, but I don’t have the time or money to invest in it.
  5. I strongly prefer pencils over pens. The upside of pencils is that they almost always write, in almost all situations. I also suspect that our pens being made in China explains why pens seemed so much better when I was young. I also suspect that this is a cognitive bias, because I have absolutely no proof, and memory is a flimsy support for a theory.
  6. I don’t trust memory. I’d rather forget than remember.
  7. Urban Terror is my favourite video game ever. I like it more than I liked Call of Duty 4, and that says a lot. It helps that I’m pretty good at it.
  8. I dislike “realism”, especially when realism focuses on violence. Films that claim to be realistic and then gloss over the boring parts just don’t cut it. Call your film “gritty” or something so I can avoid it. Violence does not equal realism especially in today’s world.
  9. Cops make me angry. Especially when they outright lie to get more funding. Several chiefs of police in Toronto have used gun violence in Toronto to push for bigger budgets and tougher laws. This seems like callous exploitation, at least to me. In a decade that’s seen nothing but declines in crime rates here in Canada, to claim otherwise is to be willfully ignorant or willfully deceptive. Either way you’re a huge douche-nozzle.
  10. I’ve had my car broken into four times, and my house broken into twice. Four of these six incidents have happened while living at my current residence. I’ve labeled it “The Worst Apartment Ever” for good reason.
  11. I own a dog. It’s a Boston Terrier. It’s name is “Turtle” and she’s female.
  12. My dream dog is a Greyhound or at the very least a Whippet. Turtle being a Boston is a compromise between my wife and I. She likes ugly dogs, low to the ground (I know, that’s pretty much me too); I like pretty dogs that go fast (I know, that’s pretty much my wife).
  13. The reason I don’t post much here anymore? Twitter. All the things I used to say here I say on Twitter. I don’t often like the character limitations, though.
  14. I have a hard time dishing out praise. This is a failing of mine, I know. It feels more genuine to be a critic than a fan. I don’t want to like everything. I don’t understand people who like everything.
  15. I love Indian food. Or at least the Indian food of our Westernized restaurants. Pakistani food is okay too but not as nice.
  16. I’m as nostalgic as the next person, and I’m not even 30. It’s odd to think that 1/3 of my life is over.
  17. I can’t write novels. I’m not disciplined enough to write something that long. Even this post is pushing it. Sometimes I can’t even read novels, especially older novels with flowing, flowery wording. It seems to me that if you could have made your novel into a short story, you should have.
  18. All the people who understand me are either a) Married to me, of b) People from the internet. My real-life friends are from different cultures and have different interests. None of them are nerds or geeks or interested in a wide range of things. Sometimes I feel profoundly alone in my own head. I don’t really have a lot of people to talk to in real life, at least people that won’t nod and smile, nod and smile. I would very much like someone to talk to about that stuff. Unfortunately, geography seems to have screwed me over. Peter is in Burlington, Art is in who knows where, Chris is in the land of the corn fields, Spencer is the other land of the corn fields, Goef is distributed over the internet by a fairly robust system of servers, and Keith is ensconced in his liberal paradise over the mountains. And it seems that every other real-life technophile I meet appears to be less than human. So here I am.
  19. I drink coffee. For a while I went off coffee. That was okay. Now I’m back on it again.
  20. I’m going to learn to play tennis, and you can’t stop me. I bought some cheap racquets and some balls the other day. There’s a tennis court close to our house.
  21. I think the most annoying type of atheist or agnostic is the freshly minted kind. I also dislike hearing someone “embracing ambiguity”. Well bully for you; is it really so hard to not pick a position? Seems easy to me.
  22. I wear size twelve shoes. Extrapolate from there if you must.
  23. I’m sorry, but I can’t help disliking some people. Extended contact sometime breeds friction. I am not a very good person, yet.
  24. There is a part of me that’s very open and willing to share as much information as you might wish. There’s another part of me that’s extremely private. Don’t open that door; you won’t like it.
  25. Sometimes when I hear about a natural disaster I think, “Good. There are too many people anyways.” Then I think, “Am I that cynical already?” Then I think, “No-one can bear the weight of all the horrors todays media can report.” I wonder whether my children’s children will have any feeling left, at all.
