Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.

Trap

Stuck

In this labyrinth you call life;

A series of unsurprising oddities and I,

Unable to find the exit door.

The liquid in this bottle is stinky. My hands tremble so.

  2. mind=BLOWN. Even though it is sadistic to say so, this couldn’t have taken a more perfect turn. :p

  3. The brilliant thing about life is that you don’t need to find the exit.
    It always finds you.

    • That’s true.
      But Ian didn’t wait for the exit to find him, did he?

      • He was an overachiever.

        Do you know his work?

        • He was an overachiever. 😄

          Na, I don’t know much.

          • Shadowplay.

            If you google “Joy Division lyrics” you’ll find a lot of his stuff. I think you’d find it interesting.

          • Don’t miss:

            > New Dawn Fades
            > Transmission
            > She’s Lost Control

            If you want to hear any of Joy Division tracks let me know and I’ll post the audio. I’ve got them all.

            I’ve also got video for “She’s Lost Control” and a brief BBC doco on his life and death if you want to see them.
            If you get really enthused you can try to find a DVD of the 2007 movie based on his widow’s account of his life and death. It’s called Control.

            I’m pretty partisan, but given the darkness of some of your recent writing I can’t help thinking you’d appreciate Curtis.

          • Haha. Right.
            I checked these today… Show me the documentary?

          • Here’s the doco.

            One thing that needs to be said is that while the doco (and Debbie Curtis) take it as given that Ian was having an affair with Annik Honoré (referred to in the doco, with typical well-heeled BBC racism, as “a Belgian woman”), not only did Ian deny it but Honoré insisted right up to her death (exactly a year ago today) that their relationship was purely platonic. Bernie Sumner, who knew them both well, says that Honoré was Ian’s close friend and confidante but he doubts there was a sexual relationship. But Debbie was sure there was more to it and that’s what destroyed their marriage.

          • Ookaay. I’ll watch it. Thanks :3

          • To truly appreciate Love will tear us apart you probably need to hear the kitschy and upbeat cover of Neil Sedaka’s Love will keep us together that was a big hit for The Captain and Tennille a few years earlier.
