Space

Here's an Amazing Music link for the morning:

They have a new video up today, a cover of the song Against All Odds, and the song is really beautiful.
Featured on the soundtrack of against all odds, Phil Collins ,1984

How can I just let you walk away, just let you leave without a trace
When I stand here taking every breath with you, ooh
You’re the only one who really knew me at all

How can you just walk away from me,
When all I can do is watch you leave
Cos we’ve shared the laughter and the pain and even shared the tears
You’re the only one who really knew me at all

So take a look at me now, oh there’s just an empty space
And there’s nothing left here to remind me,
Just the memory of your face
Ooh take a look at me now, well there’s just an empty space
And you coming back to me is against all odds and that’s what I’ve got to face

I wish I could just make you turn around,
Turn around and see me cry
There’s so much I need to say to you,
So many reasons why
You’re the only one who really knew me at all

So take a look at me now, well there’s just an empty space
And there’s nothing left here to remind me, just the memory of your face
Now take a look at me now, cos there’s just an empty space

But to wait for you, is all I can do and that’s what I’ve got to face
Take a good look at me now, cos I’ll still be standing here
And you coming back to me is against all odds
It’s the chance I’ve gotta take

Take a look at me now




Here's my office, the space where I sit, Monday through Friday, 9-5.

Today's a hard day I would say. There's about as much going on outside me as inside me. Yesterday the PATH ride home was all fucked up because apparantly there was a terror worry at the Hoboken PATH and some cop overreacted and ran around the station with his machine gun. As it was backed up the station was so hot I was just sitting in sweat. And then on the path everyone was so squished, I started laughing to myself at everyone, someone noticed and he laughed with me. It was like being at a concert up in the front.

But otherwise the city is so empty and dead and it's easy to get a seat on the PATH during rush hour. The fucking republicans scared all the workers away. And it's funny how so many look the same. Middle aged married couples with really bad hair who like a lot like Frank and Peggy Hill. I remember inauguration weekend in DC in Jan 2001. I had never seen so many women in big fur coats with massive Texas hair, fake hot pink nails and hot pink lipstick. They totally uglied up the district with their attempts at winter fashions. And now they are in new york uglying it up again.

Maybe I should try to see a play or go to an exclusive restaurant cause apparantly these things are all empty. But I am kinda sick. Go figure. And I really have to see Peter Krause in "After the Fall" eventually.
