on an elliot and errors

at one point someone told me that in my song bits i sound like a female version of elliot smith. i can actually kind of hear it, even though i was never a big fan of the man. joseph loisboy and i were talking about this a bit ago about how much of himself elliot poured into his music and how much i respected that. he said that he is going to be greatly missed and i noted that he probably didn't feel like he would be missed at all. isn't that often the way it is though? i am sad today for his family/friends. he will be missed greatly in the indie music community. i might have to buy a couple of his albums now. it's strange how someone passing pushes them up towards the top of my want list.

alex gardenhead just showed me this review of the dcfc show at the black cat the other night. i could write a better review in my sleep (AND I WAS NOT EVEN AT THE SHOW), so i did:

z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z ben gibbard z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z has been busy with another project called the postal service z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z band line up change z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z the band toured europe this summer z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z i am getting paid for this z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z z

(rubs eyes)

oh wait, no, i don't write for the washington post. if i did, i wouldn't know the front man's first NAME! i wouldn't have mentioned any of the above HIGHLY PERTINENT facts in a review of their show either. no wonder i can't get a job.

hipsters! ha ha

ahhhh..reading yr post about seeing hipsters at the post office and the grocery...brought me all back to when i first moved to chicago last sept! i was like whoa!!! what's up with all the scenesters!!! i was expecting a lot--but there were wayyyy more! it's kinda funny..but it gets annoying.
hmmm..if you need any help with general shit..i can help as much as i can. but i live in ohio now so i can't like physically take you around or anything.
if yr looking for a job--go to my old job! it's fucking boring and awful but you will make at least $9. and thats better than nothing. it's at PeopleScout on ontario and orleans downtown. its by the tourist-y area. go to www.peoplescout.com and you would want to be a telephone recruiter. if you call them, fucking act SPASTICLY HAPPY AS HELL!! that's how you get hired. and tell them you have LOTS of customer service experience.
hmm..
that's all i can think of for now.

ciao!
sarah

"lyrics that are just above a high-schoolers' air, a really smart high-schooler"

what the hell.
