My English essays are graded on a rubric but as long as you did it right you get points (the rubric is more of a symbolic grade to show how well you would do on the AP exam).

My history teacher is a good teacher but he grades things a bit weirdly. The essay was about the 'true cause of the Mexican-American War'. To get one hundred percent he said we had to have the 'correct thesis' and I went for an evolving thesis approach discussing all of the major causes in chronological order. What's annoying is I hinted at his 'correct thesis' all throughout the essay and spent a paragraph properly discussing it but since I didn't explicitly say that was the main cause, I didn't get a 100%. His 'correct thesis' ignores all of the underlying issues that mine included though. /rant

I got a 99 on my first book review for one of my classes because of "perfect combination of analysis and critique" which is cool. Would've been a 100 if I cited things correctly. I got a 100 on an 8 page paper in that class as well as like a 97 on another long ass paper. Today I wrote the last book review for that class and I hadn't even read the book. I managed to get to 1000 words somehow. He grades based on analysis, organization, and logical arguments/criticisms. In other words I am a god of sorts at writing papers which makes me confident about being a freelance writer in the future.

In my Spanish class today though we went over some Spanish painters for our final and one of them was Dali and my teacher told the class that he was still alive.

I joked about doing so. But I probably will keep these papers forever. I like the feeling after you finish a good paper. I only like writing papers about things that I care about though.

Picasso and Dali are cool. Goya creeps me out.

Oh and she didn't even mention Un Chien Andalou. If I was the teacher I would have mentioned it and then brought up the Pixies.

She also said he has a thick handlebar mustache. I was living a really bad comedy this morning.

i don't like paintings, the goofy fabric kind. they are ridiculous false windows for poofs. i can respect cave paintings i guess.

i don't like the pixies.

i like un chien andalou. i also like l'age d'or. because i'm supposed to like them and i don't have any discernment. as if there's any difference between liking and supposed-to-like-ing. identity is a delusion.

on a subjectively related note, i had a dream that there was a supposed bob dylan song that blink 182 covered. it was on a concept album from around the another side period, and, both musically and lyrically, it was very much inscrutable and arcane, while also being crude in the league of anal cunt. the album was possibly a hoax, nonexistent.

some amusing paraphrases from the dream:

"some said the album was 'songs of negro something-or-other,' others said it was space themed, others said it was beyond such commonplaces."

"no single person could invent something as good as the blues"

Lel. Bob Dylan dreams are the best dreams.

Last night I dreamt that Hamilton Morris was sitting across the aisle from me on the bus. It was just he and I as the sun was going down. I could hear his inner monologue, which was in the exact style of his voiceovers on that drug adventure show he does. o_o

Is that Margritte?

I had a dream about starting a fuzz-folk band with Jay Reatard once but I know nobody cares about other people's dreams so I won't tell that story.

The dream was that I saw someone squatting in an old house in my town who turned out to be Jay, and I said I wouldn't turn him in if he started a band with me. This was about two years ago and it's one of maybe five or six dreams that I vividly remember in my life.

People talk about fuzz folk but I never know exactly what they're talking about.

due, I have the second half of my song basically written, I just need to 'spice it up' since it's a bunch of cheesy major scale melodies and generic chords.

Neither do I, but I distinctly remember saying "fuzz-folk." To bad the dream ended before we played any shows.

I always post about dreams but I'll go ahead and do it again.

I had a dream a few years ago that was my whole life (starting from waking up the next morning- a false awakening scenario). The dream was twenty years long (I died in my thirties) yet it was physically only one night. It's hard to explain. I don't remember too many details but at the end when I died it was the best way to die, like the ending of a book. And then when I closed my eyes to die I woke up and was fourteen again. It was an incredibly strange feeling.
