Post Your Drafts

Hi Darling Ones,

I always want to be the kind of writer who is constantly scribbling down ideas and sentences whenever they strike me. However, I also don’t want to be a pretentious asshole who stops conversations, calls attention to themselves, and then writes down whatever word barf occurred to them.

Dilemmas, amiright?

However, today when I heard the song “Alabama Pines” I decided to add it to my 14 Songs note (see below). While looking for the note, I found all these other notes, and I realized, I AM that kind of writer.

I jot down ideas all the time. My planner is full of them too. Maybe I’ll show you or maybe I’ll continue to wander around in a dark, gloomy 1992 of my mind. Who knows?

Anyway, here are some of my ideas that never really saw the light of day. Until now.

He does mention Matt Dillon

I applaud whatever dude I was referring to here for mentioning Matt Dillon. I love Matt Dillon.

60 Songs

He never gets into how the songs explain the 90s.
He used the word incendiary 4 times in the Hunger Strike episode.
If he doesn’t do Misery by Soul Asylum this whole thing is a sham.

Obviously this is about my beloved 60 Songs that Explain the 90s. It is the only podcast I listen to and will continue to listen to even though I had to break-up with my imaginary boyfriend Rob Harvilla since he answered the Reality Bites question wrong, lauded Chuck Klosterman’s shitty 90s book, and repeatedly pronounced Winona as Why-nona. He also said he didn’t like people taller than him, and I am taller than him.

Joni Mitchell said if you find me in my work I haven’t done my job but if you find you in my work then I have.

“The rock and roll culture is so male dominated and it also seems to be dominated by some hostility toward women,” Linda Ronstadt.

I dunno, probably just inspiration.

I wanna write a book of essays or memoir about 14 Songs that explain my life or something. It’s vague right now. I haven’t even finished the list.

Write about the weird dream you had where you explain John Irving novels in chronological order to a romantic interest.

Why I can’t get laid even in my dreams is a mystery to me. What more would a romantic interest want? Is there anything sexier than Jodisplaining John Irving to some dude?

Panties Vs dainties.

Sometimes I have Siri take a note first thing in the morning so I don’t forget whatever brilliance is on my mind when I wake up.

Write about Orpheus over singing the siren so much that they died and compare it to the Joni Mitchell Bob Dylan record listening scene in Lisa Robinson’s book.

I bet this would’ve been pretty damn good had I ever gotten around to it.

I’m full of good ideas and out of ambition,
