My library has plenty…guess who ordered those for the collection? :lol: 

@Ahhh Girl Erm… let me guess… one of your colleagues?

@Necko Myself, yeah, friendship works, but I would have gone for American values as so much of what the Beats did was question and challenge the "American Dream" of the time.

I went on a Beat ordering binge leading up to my trip to San Francisco in 2011 (there's a picture of me on a street car floating around somewhere).

I went to a reading at City Light Bookstore while I was out there. What an experience to sit in that room.

These are the two authors that read parts of their works the night I was there. This was taken in the room where the readings happen.

Another picture from the room. All the chairs were full by the time the reading began.

The stairway leading down to the rest of store.

 

@Ron Nasty That is true about their work and lives being reactionary. A colleague suggested that I read Sloan Wilson's Man in the Grey Flannel Suit in preparation for that trip. I'm glad I did.

 

Oh, yeah, while in SF I went to the Beat Museum too.

Again, thanks for being considerate everyone. I really am just in a bad place in which I can't see myself getting out of. I know @ScrambledEggs said not to get a reassessment, but I have to and I've got no choice in the matter. I'm just constantly panicking about it and I know I can't change anything and I know I still love her and I know I can't do anything about it and I know I've got to move on and I know it's hard but I can't. I physically can't. I don't know what it is, whether it's some kind of obsessive disorder, but I'm just like a brick wall. Things are going through one ear and out the other. Advice telling me to keep away is deflected and it doesn't stay. Advice on what I can do to give myself a chance with her can change my whole life around temporarily, and that's not an exaggeration. I don't know why, but it's just like that. And to be frank – I'm scared. It's killing me from the inside and making me hopeless. I only see what I want, and I don't know why. Nothing is changing me anymore, especially since everyone's telling me to give up, and every time somebody does, it drives me deeper into a hole of despair. It's falling off a cliff and having to accept the fate. I just can't do it. I really, really can't. I would do anything to re-do this year so I had a chance. I'm terrified.

Still sorting out the separation down here.  Trying to sell an 'investment' property that has been losing money for over 3 years – it's so hard to sell a place and cover its mortgage when you have no money for marketing, mandatory inspections, legal fees etc etc.  Still chasing a job, sorting out finances and living arrangements and having a bunch of x-rays, CT and MRI for something which has decided to manifest in the middle of all this.

Otherwise, all good.  It's the morning of a new week, I have coffee, lots of new music to listen to (up to Help in the US box tonite) – so there is lots of good to go with the not so good.

Good luck with the not so good! Happy to see someone looking on the positive side in the midst of issues.

@MrMoonlight, I'm sorry if I sounded glib in my original message ("get some hobbies!" etc). That wasn't my intention. I was speaking as someone prone to introspection who has lapsed into depression on occasion, and I found, for me, distractions are far better than dwelling (I actually started this website to keep the black dog off my shoulder; thankfully he's long gone). But it sounds like your issues go deeper and I'm glad you're getting professional help.

Make sure you get the help you need, and don't be left to lapse even further. You might not be able to see a way out, but others can show you some coping strategies. My wife is a psychologist who has treated all kinds of horrors (sorry, she can't offer online help) and I know people's lives can be turned around. You're not beyond hope, so work through it, don't close yourself off and don't give up on yourself.

But still don't take any notice of what the idiots in your school think. That advice definitely still stands.

In my life? For my day job I'm writing about Dylan Thomas, Peter Blake and The Beatles, and trying to get an interview with a 60s musical legend (no, not who you're thinking). I'm also planning stuff on the 30th anniversary of the miners' strike in the UK, and I'm setting up a film shoot with an 80s singer and looking for locations. It's quite fun.

Please don't spoil my day; I'm miles away

There's an "eating right now" and a "listening to right now" thread so why not one for when you're not eating and/or listening?

I'm watching the NHL playoffs – Game One of the Montreal-Boston series, just about to go into sudden-death overtime. GO HABS!

Watching my kitten play with a toy I made for her. I put a couple of her jingly balls inside a taped up shoebox, cut paw-sized holes into the top, and now she's going crazy trying to get to the balls inside. This could occupy her for hours.

Still on the mashup mix thing. 23 minutes and nine songs in! It's not the best quality mashup there is, but it's alright. The transitions aren't perfect and the timing isn't incredible, but I really hope you enjoy it. Anyone got any suggestions for songs I could use? And would you like me to reveal the songlist now or keep it a surprise?

If you listen to it when it's done, it's probably going to be crap. The first track is good, IMO, but it's not very professionally done.

Keep it a suprise and I recomend Piggies and Ob-La-Di Ob-La-Da. Did you use Mr. Moonlight?

30 minutes of mashup completed in 24 hours. It isn't amazing, but the most recent track I've done suggests I've got my mojo back.

Any more songs you'd like me to include?
