alice lost in labyrinth

i picture you in the sun / we're one but we're not the same

goldmourn says (5/13/2006 12:27:42 AM): have you heard the michael stipe & coldplay cover of 'In The Sun' ?
the boy replies (5/13/2006 12:27:48 AM): I have not
you have it?
& i say (5/13/2006 12:27:53 AM): yes.
want it?
the boy, surprised, says (5/13/2006 12:27:57 AM): what!??
yes please
is it ?
goldmourn (5/13/2006 12:28:15 AM): it's not the same. i love joseph more, but i've always loved michael stipe.
he says gander hahaha (5/13/2006 12:28:28 AM): well I'll give it a gander
goldmourn (5/13/2006 12:28:57 AM): i like it anyway : )
& then he asks me a question (5/13/2006 12:29:19 AM): do you dislike anything?
but i'm off on a tangent (5/13/2006 12:29:25 AM): i love michael stipe singing U2's 'One', actually - i have that from a live U2 thing.
& his question gives me pause (5/13/2006 12:29:30 AM): ha... um.
& he says (5/13/2006 12:29:38 AM): this is a test question
you better pass it
; )
blahblahblah i say (5/13/2006 12:29:57 AM): yes, i suppose, but mostly i like everything just about, i'm open to new discoveries.
why i like so much, really.
& oh! goldmourn fumbles the ball (5/13/2006 12:30:57 AM): i dislike some stuff, yes.
& the boy grades my non-answer (5/13/2006 12:31:00 AM): I give you a C- for that answer
& he presses (5/13/2006 12:31:08 AM): well like what?
you dislike ....... ?
goldmourn stares blankly at the screen (5/13/2006 12:32:07 AM): i dislike...
& tries to turn it around (5/13/2006 12:32:24 AM): why do you want me to think of the negative?
but the boy ain't hearing that, see (5/13/2006 12:32:38 AM): you said there are things you dislike.
still, i try (5/13/2006 12:32:44 AM): you were asking me.
& the boy says (5/13/2006 12:32:57 AM): but you said there were things you dislike
and I was asking you what baby.
(awww, he called me baby) (5/13/2006 12:33:22 AM): you said, 'do you dislike anything?' - of course the answer is yes.
goldmourn, stubborn as all get-out (5/13/2006 12:33:29 AM): i can't think offhand, really.
& yet he tries (5/13/2006 12:33:32 AM): well what then?
that's why you get a C-
I hope you're understanding that I'm being a dork
but still, you're evading my questions
goldmourn thinks, a C- is a pass, right? & yes, he's a dork. but it's a good question. & the South Park reference is still hilarious & so i say (5/13/2006 12:35:04 AM): haha.
the boy changes the subject (5/13/2006 12:37:35 AM): nice harmonies here
vocals that is
goldmourn agrees & thinks, that's why I wanted to share this with you... dork. (5/13/2006 12:37:47 AM): not too bad.
for two distinct individual voices.
did you hear him say, 'this is the best song ever written, in my opinion'.
at the end.
& the boy is (5/13/2006 12:39:31 AM): almost there
goldmourn rambles again (5/13/2006 12:39:44 AM): yeah, michael stipe directed produced the film 'Saved!', where the song 'in the sun' was put in...
& the boy says (5/13/2006 12:40:05 AM): haha
very nice
goldmourn (5/13/2006 12:40:15 AM): yes.
the boy is so polite (5/13/2006 12:40:16 AM): thank you!
goldmourn can be too, sometimes (5/13/2006 12:40:55 AM): you're welcome. i still prefer the original, of course. the song makes me think of you, & myself.
& he says (5/13/2006 12:41:13 AM): well well, really? ; )
I know I know
me too
they actually did pretty well with this. I mean. It's like a different song really.
goldmourn knows she dislikes some things... but this moment isn't one of them. (5/13/2006 12:42:55 AM): yes.
& Timay! says (5/13/2006 12:43:24 AM): now I need to listen to the original
for the 1000th time
hey, it's number one on 25 top played
in my Itunes
& goldmourn can't help but (5/13/2006 12:43:59 AM): : )
