received a call from friend Alicia in L.A. aside from falling out of touch and having different visions of which direction MY life should be heading... she has remained my first and foremost music critic....

anyway, i had sent her a tape of newer songs, post-"happy&broken" even though "happy&broken" has yet to be released. an aside: she thinks happy&broken is "utterly" me and brilliant, however... next batch of songs, so thus far, are strange, ecclectic and just plain i-can't-put-the-proverbial-finger-on-it.

Alicia's opinion of new songs:

"you're stuck somewhere between being the next morrissey and "Exile in Guyville": the morning-after. It works for you. I'm just not sure that you want to be a whiney, regret-filled waking up angry at yourself for last night's behavior and having to ask yourself the questions, just how did i get this stain on my shirt? is that bloody mary or blood? why are my stilletos still on? However, that may rock the way you roll. p.s. My favorite lines (most of them, oddly enough are questions): 'if they call you tarzan does that make me jane?,' 'is love sick or infectious? is this my deathbed?,' 'i think i've been cursing the day i met you, i thank god i've run outta 4 letter words,' 'i wish i knew now what i knew then. cos now i break whereas i used to bend,' and something about you haveing your arms around his wishy-washy-ness. classic. mint, baby."

yadda, yadda. but how exciting! Exile in Guyville-the morning after. s perfekt. s clever. DAMN me for not thinking of it first.

but i am NOT the new morissey. nothing against morissey, i just don't think anyone can be THAT depressed ALL the time. at least i have happy songs about the NY times crossword and wasting away sunday mornings/afternoons.
