somebody that I used to know

I swear I’m writing posts of substance right now. I figured out a couple things and I also want to share some stories. Truth.

But until I finish those, here’s what’s really popping my cork these days. Gotye is bar none my favorite music discovery this year. I love him (it? them?) and I pretty much listened to Making Mirrors on a loop my entire Seattle trip.
And this song? This song is honey on my wounds. This song reached into my soul and pulled out the truth. It punched me in the guts and pulled out the pain and tears. It’s exactly what I had and have been going through the last couple months. Seriously. Every damn word.

And you know what? It makes me feel better. I feel validated, I think. But it’s also somehow very Foucault. Like, someone else took my thoughts and feelings and put them out in the universe and so they’re not in me anymore. Something akin to catharsis but not quite.

So I'm happy this week. Light at the end of the motherfucking tunnel yo.

Also? This video rocks my whole world wide open. Enjoy!

Music makes everything better. Except I'm not sure about sex cause my wife says the CD player is broken. It's been broken for a long time.

Sorry attempt at humor I realize, but oh well.

We've been full-on obsessed with this song for over a month now. Good stuff comes out of the South Pacific! Glad you were able to obtain some closure from the awesomeness of Gotye. Have you listened to much of Kimbra? Wandering Limbs = OMG.
