i thought i knew you, what did i know?

i had to go to work today (a fucking saturday) because of valentine's day. for those of you who don't know, i work for RedEnvelope. these guys live for valentine's day. i just work there to pay the bills. anyways, i've collected a few tunes to help get me thru "VDAY", as it's called at work. in the words of frank booth, from blue velvet:

I'll send you a love letter! Straight from my heart, fucker! You know what a love letter is? It's a bullet from a fucking gun, fucker! You receive a love letter from me, and you're fucked forever! You understand, fuck? I'll send you straight to hell, fucker!

i don't know why i just thought of that. weird, man, weird. oh yeah, i think i used that quote to illustrate how i feel about the whole st. valentine's day line of bullshit. so there you have it.

i hope i got the links correct, gimme a shout if i didn't.

cat stevens > here comes my baby
xtc > your dictionary
the beatles > i'm looking through you
neko case > if you knew
stars > your ex-lover is dead
gloria jones > tainted love
joe jackson > happy loving couples
lesley gore > look of love
blondie > just go away

If you feel like that about VD, and I don't think you're alone, are you working for the right company?! :-)

haha, it's okay. it's all numbers to me most of the time.

It does my bloody head in, it's all so fake and the expectations are so contrived.

I buy my wife about 10-15 bunches of flowers a year at random times and because I feel like it. Of course I have to do on VD as well and they have to be bigger and better... What BS!

Ooh, word verification thing is DJTurd! How cool is that?!

robot_hero said...

yep, i hear ya man. hmm, i wonder if that new DJTurd album is out yet...

my veri-word is whicyd. must be a reference to the missing legendary rapper, icy d. "where is icy d?"
