Back from New York. Feeling like a stranger in a strange land. It's too quiet. Here then we have a 33 song selection from songs I played at my party on Friday: [ 33 ]

And you're turning tricks
With your crucifix
You're a star

It seems I'm doing everything in 3's this month. Fist I saw 500 Days of Summer. Then the following day I watched Gigantic. To end it all: All The Real Girls. Mission accomplished.+ Video for "Why Do You Let Me Stay Here?"

Longing. Longing for a wave of love that would stir in me. That's what makes me clumsy. The absence of pleasure. Desire for love. Desire to love.
