Stupid internet radio station disobeying my orders.  It's not that I dislike Jackson Browne, but everytime I listen to this station (which is the AccuRadio: Motel California station) it always plays myriad Jackson Browne songs, sometimes the same ones in short revolutions, and I get tired of it.  Although I've listened to Glen Frey's solo version of Desperado twice now, so I can't complain about one Jackson Browne song I guess.  And if this paragraph has been completely lost on you, then you need to brush up on some good old rock-and-roll.  May I suggest some Tom Waits?  Eagles?  How about some CCR?  That's right.  It won't hurt you.

Now, I know that's not what I came here to talk about.  *ponders*  Now I all can think about is that the Piano Has Been Drinking.  (gods bless Tom Waits).  OH!  That's right.  I came here to tell you all how completely awesome, jerad is! 


I don't know when Jerad and I started talking.  I know where we met, and that was through the EK forum.  But when exactly we started getting along and decided it'd be fun to chat, that time frame escapes me.  Although, I know that it's been almost close if not more than two years, and that fact astounds me.  We chatted a lot in the beginning, especially late at night, when we needed to talk about anything and everything.  He is a great listener, and a brilliant writer.  I wish he'd write more.  Or at least post more of what he writes!
Jerad's poetry is emotional and raw, and reaches those feelings you didn't know you had about experiences you've never even been through. That might not make sense until you've read a few of his poems, but it's true!  He's been through some tough times which lead to some of his more emotional fed pieces and their maturity level.  Jerad is one of those people that automatically screams "old soul" if you read into those sorts of things, because he feels so comfortable with so many different topics of conversations.  He listens to you and is able to give advice that makes you feel like he's been through this a million times before, whether he has or not.  But whatever he says, is just the right thing to make you feel better. A remarkable ability for someone a few years younger than me. 
I wish I had more time to sit around and chat with him like I used to.  *hugs*

*hugs* Me too. But now I'm working and in school at the same time. School ends next week, though, so I'll just be working, and not having to worry about studying and what not. And speaking of poems, I have a new one to post at Shattered Mirror, but I have to find where I wrote it. It's in one of my school notebooks somewhere. I'm just going to leave my ICQ on permanently now, so we can trade messages back and forth even if one of us isn't online.

That's a very good idea. Mine's usually on, whether I'm there or not.

And may I say, that Tom Waits is a complete badass. Listen to the song Goin' Out West. He's 55 today. Happy birthday, Tom!
