One good thing about music is when it hits, you feel no pain.
June 25, 2004

So, I’m driving down the road. What I’m doing while driving is something I do quite often, as driving generally bores me to the point of not paying attention to what I’m doing, which I’ve heard can be dangerous. I’m amusing myself by singing along to music. But not just singing along. I pretend that I’m actually doing a duet with the person that’s singing from the CD – the person who got paid to sing this song.

Sometimes I pretend that it was me who got paid to sing that song, and I marvel at the excellent job I did. I think about all the great times I had with the band, and laugh out loud that that one thing that was so funny that happened while we were on tour, and how we laughed about it for days afterwards.

Sometimes I pretend that I’m actually performing with this singer; that we’re on stage at a small club in a hip city. The singer recognized me in the crowd and invited me up like I was a superstar. The singer was so happy to have me there – he or she was humbled by me and was amazed that I knew all the words to the song.

Sometimes I’m just singing karaoke in a nifty Japanese karaoke bar, a la Lost in Translation. This is mostly when I’m singing along to my anime themes. I know them all by heart.

I know I probably look like a total idiot, singing like I mean it in my car, but I don’t care. It’s all because I’m a superstar. At least inside my head…


aww. head. you're kind of pathetic.

Of all the dangerous things one can do in one's car, I think singing along is not all that dangerous.

I might be wrong.
