The Third Shift


  1. My girlfriend not only noticed that the Mountain Goats were playing a week from Sunday but then went to the Aladdin Theater the next day to buy the tickets in person to save $22 in processing fees.
We’ve been dating for two months. If I don’t love this woman, then the day I know I do isn’t very far off.

  2. TV on the Radio, “Poppy”

    The lyrics couldn’t represent mature love better, in my eyes.

    I’m not looking for a mommy
    Don’t seem like you need a poppy
    Plenty of time till you’re an old lady
    And the same for me before I’m an old man

    We could celebrate it monthly
    How we stayed individuated
    Oh kid, congratulations
    You held on to your dear dear dear identitiy
    Even while spending so much time with me

    I see two blackbirds in the yard
    They are paired together
    They are feeding
    They are flying
    They are fucking

    I see two dragonflies do the same in midair
    There is something
    Special in the air

    We wake up in the same bed
    But with different bodies
    God bless our separate heads
    Oh desire will run about

    That’s what the geese were all roaring about 
    The fact that our love
    Is not that kind of love
    Not that selfish love

    Says what’s yours is mine
    And what’s mine is yours

    I don’t need to turn you out 
    You don’t need to turn me into your whore

    We are not some rutting pair of wild boars
    We’re just psyched so psyched
    So psyched so fucking psyched

    That’s what the geese are all roaring about
    That’s what their hearts were all open about

    Our love
    That kind of love
    Unselfish love
