Theres the overrated stuff (Walk On, BD (as much as i love it), Elevation)
The alright stuff (WILATW, Kite)
And the bullshit (IALW, POE, Grace)
As I see it, there's:

Classic stuff: TGBHF
Good stuff: WILATW
Also good stuff, but something wrong/missing: Walk On (cliche lyrics), Kite (intro sucks), Grace (just not on WILATW's level)
Mediocre but listenable: BD, Wild Honey, New York
Kinda daft: Elevation, Peace On Earth
Absolute dogshit: Stuck, IALW

I feel like this album has less cohesion than my symphonic. Sure, in the symphonic, that was the point, but, still, it's pissing me off.

I need a good opener for my second disc, and I don't have one.

My playlist takes some risks, I even have a ska band thrown in there.

Alright, I'll include you in the e-mail. It'll come with FIAE, but I guess you just don't need to download it. It'll be the 11/11/1980 performance.

Girl breaks up with her boyfriends of two plus years. How long do I wait to make a move?

That's actually my problem too. Some songs just aren't fitting together in the way I want them to. I'll get it in the end, I hope, but it might take a bit of experimentation.

Also, I've thrown my "no metal because Interference is closed-minded" rule to the four winds. Fuck it, I want a really dark tracklist, and I know where to get it. So what if some music n00bs can't take death growls?

The boundaries are just fucked. You get the feeling it's probably from some sort of Middle Ages dealing, some lord just buying up plots of land where he could with no regards to territorial cohesion.

And you MUST go to the Kunstmuseum and write to us all. Not necessarily at the same time. But if you were to sit down in a gallery there and write to us, that'd be even funnier!

My closing track is definitely going to be an instrumental, I'm just not sure which would work best ... there's a few. One would be a good traditional closing, but one would be a little off-kilter, but could work with the theme better if I work it right.

Needs a better opening to the second disc still. Can't find one. Hmm. Decisions.

This one song per artist rule really hamstrings me. I honestly don't listen to enough artists to get the cohesion going well enough.

I disagree. Let some other poor bastard be the rebound.

But then again, why the hell should he take advice from either of us?

I don't know if the relationship was as serious and intense as my 18 month college relationship, or why she broke up (part of why I broke up with him was that I was feelilng claustrophobic, so I really wasn't into commitment afterwards). But there will be a rebound period of a while. For me it was probably 5-6 months, though it took a while to find someone to emotionally rebound off of for final closure. But you don't want to be a rebound if you really like her....so I would wait a while if you want something healthy.

If you just wanna make out with her or have a shallow relationship built on rebound, go for it in a few weeks!
