a list that describes my sophomore year

books

brave new world - best book i've ever read. i think about it all the time

a visit from the goon squad - the part about the punks in 1970s new york was pretty cool

the catcher in the rye - i didn't read this this year but i kept finding myself relating many of the themes to my life

animal farm - i know we read this in school but it's still one of my favorite books ever. i love allegories



albums

sonic youth / daydream nation - repeat repeat repeat repeat

the white stripes / de stilj - best white stripes album and the opener is sooooo good

zoo kid / zoo kid - this is the coolest album i've ever heard and it doesn't hurt that zoo kid is super attractive

deerhunter / halcyon digest - very very beautiful and many of the songs manage to give me chills

minks / by the hedge - this album puts me in a strange state of mind. i like it though and i think it's fantastic for a chilly, rainy day


the velvet underground and nico - this album had always intrigued me but i don't think i truly appreciated its brilliance until this year. heroin is probably the best song ever written

pavement / crooked rain, crooked rain - whenever i hear this album, it always makes me think of california skateboarders in the 1990s. i wasn't there so i can't really say, but i have to imagine that it was pretty cool

led zeppelin / I - one of the sexiest albums of all time. i mean just listen to that bass line in dazed and confused. hot DAMN.


girls / album - it's beginning to get overplayed but it still contains some of my favorite songs (lust for life, morning light, summertime, curls)

the beatles / white album - my favorite beatles album by FAR

the strokes / is this it - it had to go on here. the tightest album i know (although it might have overstayed its welcome this year). still, it just gives me that feeling...


movies

easy rider - this is the movie that made me want to hop on a motorcycle and go wherever the road takes me

dazed and confused - i genuinely just love this movie. it makes me happy

wayne's world - PARTY TIME PARTY TIME

the virgin suicides - a beautiful but unsettling movie. sure, it's a stereotypical tumblr movie but still, it's fantastic

clerks - one of the funniest movies i've ever seen

gummo - the most haunting movie i've ever seen but also the most memorable


tv shows

freaks and geeks - i feel like i could have been really good friends with lindsey weir lol

skins generation one - best teen drama i've ever seen

copying katya and putting (some of) my stickies on here

result of a weird psychological test that i thought was scarily accurate
You are expecting too much from the world and this lack is expressing itself in frustration and dismay. Often there will be a distinct problem with a loved one caused by unrealistic expectations of perfection. If this is the case, then there may be sexual problems caused by this lack of understanding or empathy.

Feelings of insecurity, both physical and mental, are creating stress and anxiety at the moment. A desire to experience the fullness of life is being met with frustration. You are searching for both fulfillment and sympathetic friendship, and unfortunately finding neither. There is a desire for intimate connection to the outside world and a fear that this may not be possible.
