Napoleon Complex

Today was the first day since Napoleon Dynamite exploded that I've gone 24 hours without having someone reference the movie. America, get a life. Seriously.

Alanis Morissette You Suck!

A couple of weeks ago i overheard a good chunk of that ridiculuously overrated piece of crap album, Little Jagged Pill, by angry for no reason, Alanis Morissette. Forget the lame music and the never changing, god aweful singing. She writes the most repetetive and ridiculously simplistic piece of shit songs ever concieved. Here are some samples. Tell me if you notice any patterns?

Hand in My Pocket

    I'm broke but I'm happy
    I'm poor but I'm kind
    I'm short but I'm healthy, yeah
    I'm high but I'm grounded
    I'm sane but I'm overwhelmed
    I'm lost but I'm hopeful baby

Right Through You

   I see right through you
   I know right through you
   I feel right through you
   I walk right through you

  You took me for a joke 
  You took me for a child
  You took a long hard look at my ass


  We all had our reasons to be there
  We all had a thing or two to learn
  We all needed something to cling to

You Learn

  You live you learn
  You love you learn
  You cry you learn
  You lose you learn
  You bleed you learn
  You scream you learn


  It's like rain on your wedding day
  It's a free ride when you've already paid
  It's the good advice that you just didn't take

Not The Doctor

   I don't want to be the filler if the void is solely yours
   I don't want to be your glass of single malt whiskey
   Hidden in the bottom drawer
   I don't want to be a bandage if the wound is not mine
   Lend me some fresh air
   I don't want to be adored for what I merely represent to you
   I don't want to be your babysitter

Your House

  Would you forgive me love if I dance in your shower?
  Would you forgive me love if I laid in your bed?
  Would you forgive me love if I stay all afternoon?

Hmmmmmm. Just slight recurences there. Just pick a lame sentence. A real simple one too that starts with a pronoun. Then make the next line the same exact sentence except change like 2 words. But do something clever. Like say the opposite, oh my. Or pick words that make no sense but rhyme. Alanis, you're a fucking genius. Using this pathetic though apperently commercial formula, we can thank 15 year old girls for that once again, here is a song i wrote:


  I am someone, but I am someonee else.
  I know I'm me, but i feel like you.
  I tried to try to try to try.
  I should have tried to try to try harder.
  I don't know what I'm talking about, but I talk about what I know.
  I spoke doke chika poo.
  I chika spoke poo doke.
  I   011100101
  I   100110101
  I "fill in the blank"
  I "blank fill in you"
  I am I I never though I was I I never knew I do I see I I I I I I I
  But never really I! I I I I I. Ohhh I why I. Die I. I. I.

Its ok to use the structure sometimes if done well, Pain of Salvations Imago. If not done well or repeated pathetically this many times a record turns into a broken record. So Alanis, keep a journal under your pillow, but stay the fuck off of the airwaves cause i can still hear the repetetive bullshit echoes of Ironic the song of a bunch of not so ironic but really just unfortunate events.
