Shamelessly watching Laguna Beach alone on a friday night.
new level of white girl achieved!
driving to the mall listening to Britney spears.
Try while listening to the Spice Girls and we’ll talk.
…you think “jackson” you don’t think of the president, but of darling conor crooning “sollllliiidddd jaaaacksssonnn”
…’I like your shoes’ has become an acceptable come on line.
…someone says the best Bright Eyes song is “Lover I Don’t Have To Love” and you roll your eyes and think ‘way to be mainstream’
…you made some sort of weird happy squeally noise when you saw Conor was actually in the “Easy/Lucky/Free” video.
…whether or not you smoke or not you’ve considered picking up a pack of Parlaiments
…you KNOW Conor hasn’t been a vegan in a long time just like you know Desaparecidos is over.
…girls— you want to be Maria Taylor. boys— you want to be Mike Mogis
…you know all the subtle differences in the live versions vs. the studio versions
…you still don’t know what the fuck “arc of time (time code)” is about
…you’ve experimented with various puncuation around the words “You Will”, and still can’t get it as good as Conor did.
…you never knew hair pulling could sound so sexy
…you’ve planned a road trip based on June On The West Coast
…Feb. 15 is circled on your calendar
…if you want to name your daughter Arienette
…if, unlike non-fans, you’re amused by the interview on Fevers & Mirrors, not disturbed like people without a sense of humor
…when you know the interview at the end of “attempt to tip the scales” is simulated, but a small part of you wishes he really was that blatantly weird.
…someone calls Bright Eyes emo and you’re ready to fight.
…someone puts Bright Eyes in the same category as PANIC! At The Disco, Fall Out Boy, or even Snow Patrol, and you’re ready to savagely attack.
…you’ve wanted to sit down on a bench next to a stranger and hold his hand— to see if he thinks he’s cured.
…you’ve planned to visit and/or move to Omaha
…you can find a lyric of Conor’s for virtually any situation in life
…you’ve found yourself nodding to several of these and now want to be my friend
…you’ve named a fictional character “Conor”
omg ahahahah most of these are SOOO TRUE.
patience patience patience patience patience patience patience
i hate waiting ! I want things to happen now now now now now
I have an idea
let’s defund all music and art programs in public schools and just throw standardized tests at every student, especially those in low-class areas, and then make welfare only available for people who haven’t done drugs in their lives, and let’s just tell every kid with a felony that they can’t go back to school or have any shot at life even if they never did anything totally wrong (ESPECIALLY if they’re a minority because ya know, they’re always the bad ones). let’s also make jobs not available to anyone who has any history with drugs.
and you know what? let’s take this a step further. let’s make abortion totally illegal
so that way, we know that the low-class streets will be overflowing with kids who will never get anywhere in life, and when they get in our way we can get mad at them and tell them to do something of value in their lives, even though they have no idea what the fuck that means because they grew up with no knowledge of what a good life is like, but you know what who the fuck cares because if they’re not trying to help themselves then that’s not our problem, right? let’s make sure that college and medical bills are completely unaffordable to anyone who probably needs it the most.
this sounds like the BEST COUNTRY IN THE WORLD
WORLD’S GREATEST COUNTRY
