This is Why You're Single


The mix & etc. I’ve been working on since the day we met that’s somehow still mediocre & barely so13 tracks, 39.9 minutes

This is the mix that I made for Nickolas when we were dating. I hated it & thought it was a stupid mix at the time, but it’s since grown on me. I never gave it to him because we broke up the day after I finished it & I was too sad to be bitter & throw it at him or leave it on his door step or something of the like. I never finished the “& etc.” part, I just threw it away before finishing. I figure someone might as well listen to it, because (now) I think it’s pretty okay.

TRACKS:
“Honey, I Need You” - Johnnie & Jack
“Short Country Song” - Emmy the Great
“Reasons” - Bombadil
“I Don’t Believe In Love” - The School 
“Some Other Dirty Things” - Cold Bear Scout
“Just Another Love Song” - Roadside Poppies
“Hesitating Beauty” - Billy Bragg & Wilco
“You Shook Me All Night Long” - The Darlings
“Angel (Will You Be My)” - Pale Saints
“Secret Tongues” - Adam Green
“Hardcore Days & Softcore Nights” - Aqueduct
“Sheila Take A Bow” - Young Traditions
“I Still Love You” - Cinecyde

Why you shouldn’t be single.

She is your crowbar, your vodka chaser, the loudest fastest punk song you ever heard. She’d eat what you discard; she’d lick up your saliva, bathe in your sweat. She is a tick, thick on your blood, sickening on your scent. She’d drive across desert to get to you, even in this wet green land where she’d need a major detour to even find desert. She would, for you.

She is your mistake to make, & you know what you will do. You will detour around your life for a day, a week, a year. You will feed her on poetry, wine, engraved chocolates. You will let her grow fat on you.

You will consider staying. You will imagine life with this scattershot pillarbox muffin of a girl; you will wonder if she could fix the knife-edge cross-hair details of you. You will look for gold in her; scrounge through her insides for the glint of coins, so sure that there is treasure. You will find kidneys & anger & bent cogs & red blood cells & mixtapes & tarnished keys & bone marrow & everything except that glint of gold.

By then she will have scratched at your surface, pushed the dirt of your skin right under her fingernails. She will keep the bits of you there, pushed down with toothpicks so they won’t wash away. You won’t even notice that the dirt is gone, but she will. She will keep scraping that dirt away until your skin shines like apple-peel, until her face is reflected in it.

But then when she is too full to run, so gorged that she can only fumble around & grasp between her palms, you will let go. She will topple, this leech full to bursting. She will rupture like a glob of mercury.

Later, you will miss the taste of her: that sicksweet reek of lust & desperation. You will wonder if you could have glued the parts of her together; that cross-hair detail of yours would ensure that the cracks did not show. You could have made her softer, cooler, harder, hotter. You could have made her. You could.

But she wouldn’t really be soft; she’d just be less hard. She wouldn’t be hot; just thawed at the edges, frozen at her centre. She’d memorise all the words, everything you ever said, & she’d twist it around so it sounded clean & new, so you’d think that she was.

So the sun & the snow will fall, & you will sleep along with the day. Before sleep you will think about stopping & you will think about running. Finally you will realise that you had fun; & end-of-a-chapter fun is what it’s all about. You have a party, you take a photo, then everyone goes home & it’s another thing to think about in the endless moments before sleep.

Of course, you will forget that your dirt is still under her fingernails. You will forget that the taste of her still sticks to the inside of your cheeks.

mythical creatures?

This is why you’re single: You call you group of friends “the dragons”

….and you’re all in your mid-20’s.

Is this clean?

This is why you’re single: You don’t empty out the clean laundry from your laundry basket and eventually end up with a huge pile of dirty clothes next to your laundry basket until you have to do laundry all over again.

Double Life

This is why you’re single: You have two different OkCupid accounts.  One for when you’re at school, one for when you’re at home.

Three strikes, right?

This is why you’re single: You agree to go on a second date with someone you’ve complained about on this blog.

Healthy Emotional Tendencies

This is why you’re single:  You want to re-friend your ex on Facebook just so you can see your new friendship page.

Wheat Thinners?

This is why you’re single: “Healthy” day means eat-the-entire-box-of-Wheat-Thins day.  As a mid-day snack.  What, that’s a serving, right?

But tons of people call me…

This is why you’re single:  Your first concern when your cell phone dies is, “What if the delivery man calls me and I miss it?!”

Isn’t that why you walk to music?

This is why you’re single:  When you listen to music on your walk to class, you end up dancing the entire way instead of walking.  People look at you like you’re insane.

Confidence!

This is why you’re single:  You assume they’re not going to call you, before they have a chance to call you.

Write what you know, right?

This is why you’re single: When it comes to the weird, pathetic person in the short story you’re writing, you base all of their quirks off of things that have genuinely happened to you.

Looking for something?

This is why you’re single:  OkCupid is your most visited site.  More than Gmail, more than Facebook. 

It Wants To Play Now!

Girl: I like your dick.

Boy: It likes you, too.

Boy: It really wants to come hang out with your pussy sometime real soon.

Girl:  … That was really creepy…

Boy: What?

Girl:  You just personified your penis…
