Apparently there is a gift option in the U.K. that you can set up play lists, and post them to fellow iPodders. You can also set up codes, like gift cards, that let people download specific play lists you have created.

Colin sent me an iSkar list-
It's long.
And yes it's a romantic gesture.

So I won't bore you with the details of why he picked each song-lots of sweet sentiment (which he is prone too), some confusing selections, and plenty of dance music that he has begrudgingly started listening to in preparation of a future with a BarSlut.

Cool Part?
Versions of songs I've never heard before, bands I've never heard of, and an insight into what he thinks of as the soundtrack to me.

Not so Cool Part?

Pleasant Surprises...
Passengers, 'Slug'
John Williams, 'Hedwigs Theme'
Pulp, 'Something Changed'
Dead Can Dance, 'Enigma of the Absolute'
Simple Minds, 'Belfast Child'

Amusing but Obvious...
Oasis and The Chemical Bros, 'Setting Sun'
and another Oasis song
and another
and another
and another
Moulin Rouge Soundtrack, 'Come What May'
Texas, 'In Demand'

Confusing and will ponder for days...
A Touch of Class, 'Around the World'
Buffalo Springfield, 'For What It's Worth'
Arcade Fire, 'Neighborhood #1 (Tunnel)'

Wow he was pissed when we broke up the first time...
The Verve, 'So Sister'
Fiona Apple, 'Criminal'
Soft Cell, 'Tainted Love'
Joni Mitchell, 'Both Sides, Now'

Brand new to me bands to give a listen to...

The Crimea
Louis XIV

Including The Flaming Lips song that late at night/early early early in the morning, he'll phone and sing to me in a very sleepy voice.

"Mr. Allen, this may come as a shock to you, but there are some men who don't end every sentence with a proposition."

Today I was feeling, for the first time, that I had been dumped by a woman.
Turns out that I had not been dumped, just that cell technology prevented my re-affirmation of self-worth in regard to my 'family'
It's true, that Saryn is all I have ever known as a sister.
I'm over protective, I crave her opinion, and I feel an unprecedented need to take care of her.
(It also makes me FAR too over protective of her)
but so goes life.

So tonight we had a girls night out-
and there was drinking
and catching up
and gossip

I love my gals

They help to keep everything in perspective-
(sometimes I forget what I'm NOT committed too-
I KNOW that-
but what my limitations are)

so we're out,
we hear Duckie is sad,
he can't join us.

Take a survey of the bar staff...

They have lots of questions for a group of gals composed of lesbians, bi, and straight gals.

It's coming up on midnight and I miss my boy.
So I call him

"Are you awake?"
"I am now."
"I'm tipsy"
"Oh yes?"
"oh yes"
"Were you a good girl?"
"Mae West type good girl, or applying for the nunnery good girl?"
"My options are Mae West or Ophelia?"
"I guess I was Ophelia while asking the bar man about adventures"

This is not the first time he has referred to me as his Ophelia, and I decide I should re-read Hamlet rather quickly to discern any possible para els between me and this girl I only know as Hamlet's driven mad lover.

I know he said he loved her, but he could not posses her due to his mad obsession of his uncle, his country, and those pesky ghosts and witches-
Where do I fit in with this type of madness?

"Why Ophelia?", I ask, "Why not some Miranda/Tempest action?"

"You siting Miranda makes me want to get legless!"

I'm far too tipsy to know what that means.

"I'm tipsy Darling! Can't you come up with some sort of pillow talk that I'm hip too?"

"Give me one more chance
And you'll be satisfied
Give me two more chances
You won't be denied

Well my heart is where it's always been
My head is somewhere in between
Give me one more chance
There will be a lover tonight"

I swoon!

-and then Saryn calls.

I should be in bed, or at least trying to sleep.
OH! How I LOVE Los Angeles, and the life I live.

Sweet dreams to my fellow west coasters, and wishes of great mornings to those cursed with only a few hours of sleep due to time zone differences and commanding attentions.

"Let's get down to brass tacks. How much for the ape?"

Vegas was filled with the sort of irreverent and non-sensible adventures that I think only someone who had undertaken the adventure would truly be able to appreciate.

There were the usual appearances...
gambling, drinking, the cursing of fate-

The not so usual...

The Amish Ninja, Liberace gravitational pulls (then being honked at to get up off the street),

Then those bits of abstract that still confuse, even after hours of catch up sleep and no alcohol.

Tut-humping, Blue fist fisting, The politics of Daubing, singing the secret jingle called, "Welcome to Barstow!"

I could never bring a fair portrayal to the weekend, but if you'd like to read my compatriots takes on it all, you can read about them here, and here when they get around to typing about it.

Lessons Learned-

On Las Vegas Blvd, every man who dreams hard enough can be Britney,
It is in fact possible to be pulled over by a policeman on a horse,
and the whores clock out in front of the Barbary Coast at about 5 a.m.

And teh suck, no more pirates at Treasure Island-no more skull and crossbones on the sign.
It's now called T I and it S U C K S
