Today, during Marianne's Adventures into the Real World, I went shopping. And I realized just how isolated I am from everyone else. And how different I am, and un-normal. I thought about how there are so many people out there. Strangers. Just one big writhing mass of humanity. And I said to myself, "We're the only sane ones out there, darling."

But I know that there are people out there that I can relate with. I just need to find them around here. Yet I'd rather just live in my own perfected world of my imagination. Or, if that fails, my imaginary world of the internet. Because here I can be myself. I'm sure that I can be myself elsewhere, it's just that.. there's no one worthwhile to reveal myself to. Or else I'm scared of being judged.

Bleh. What strange creatures these mortals be... I'm going to end up moving to New Zealand and hiding away while I write and otherwise indulge in my idealized fantasies.

On the plus side, I found some arm warmers. And I got the new Metallica cd, which I am listening to at the moment.
Current Mood: okayokay
Current Music: Metallica - St. Anger

Hey, I was going to ask you about the Metallica CD, cause I know you like them...I'm more into the older stuff, but I think you like their newer material.

I was just wondering what you thought about the new CD? I heard it was their worst album...everything is just kind of thrown together from fast to slow to fast again and there aren't any guitar solos.

From what I heard, the people who like their newer stuff are turned off by the harder, faster songs on it (moreso than Load/ReLoad) and people who like their older stuff (such as myself) think it's a half-assed attempt at an album.

I just listened to it again. I like some songs, but I do admit that I don’t think it’s as good as some of their previous albums. I have to agree with what you said, I’m not as into the harder and faster songs. I think I’ve grown more accustomed to the styles of Dream Theater and Blind Guardian. I know it took me a little while to get into Blind Guardian to begin with, mostly because I wasn’t sure of their vocals. With Metallica’s new album, it’s more of the opposite. I had a lot easier time getting into the harder songs on Load and Reload. This is just kind of.. different.
