Moby – In This World

 

That feeling when you’re off. Off to see the world. You’re all packed up and ready to go. To go see distant lands, see creatures you’ve never seen before, only heard talking of. Those places you’ve never visited before; of which you never knew their beautiful existence. And so you spread your wings and fly, open your arms, and your heart, to welcome anything that’s New in there, anything at all, as if to say “Hi, who are you? I wish I’ve met you sooner, cause you kinda light up my world”. But then, as you go out there, out into the wild, no one really notices you. Well, you know, maybe some dog does. But no actual human being notices you. Such a shame. You’d think they’d notice. I mean, look at you, you’re nice, and friendly, and courageous. Take the first man on the moon, for example, I bet they noticed him. But you’re not like him, are you? No, cause him at least they noticed. No one notices you, do they? Until … suddenly, … someone does notice you. Not only notices you, but actually sees you. And you feel your heart lighting up, you feel on top of the moon, and … and he walks away, anyway. And you don’t understand. Lordy, don’t leave me all by myself. So you pack up, and leave. Back to your old place. Where nothing is ever New. But only when you arrive awaits you something you hadn’t noticed before. They have seen you have returned. And you’re welcomed into someone’s world. And so now, mhuhahahah, now you’ve found the perfect plan. Now those strange folks must notice you.

Aesop Rock – Kirby

 

Let’s hop along on the “oh look, a small kitten acting cute”-trend. Cause for stuff to go viral, all you really need is one awesome-looking muppet and a cute kitten on your bed. Whatcha doing, Kirby? Just joking around with her boss, the psychiatric patient, or really any other human. She’s his confidante, his partner in crime, his eternal friend to turn to in times of utter pain. She’s all you ever hoped for in your Facebook’s “What’s New?”-page. Don’t have that sense of purpose other people have? Not to worry: here’s Kirbs. I mean, sure, you could get Facebook, go to a shrink, get drunk all day, … but really, all you need is a cute little pet to get to come home to. Fifteen years taking prescriptions, now a shrink like “I don’t know, maybe get a kitten?”. E-xactly. Cause kittens rock. They pass the time. Their cute little ways of going ecstatic for your average plastic bag or cardboard box, it’s just like: Damn… Maybe you’re making life more complicated than it actually is? And they’re not like dogs, too, in the sense that you’re forced to go outside and leave the tender touch of your comfy couch. No, no, life’s awesome just the way it is: Me and Kirbs hanging about. Keep an old man sharp. Keep the lovin’ alive.
