Perhaps this is the Theme Song to my current path, desire for self and life, scholarship, etc.

Song: Truth by Alexander Ebert


The truth is that I never shook my shadow
Every day it's trying to trick me into doing battle
Calling out 'faker' only get me rattled
Wanna pull me back behind the fence with the cattle
Building your lenses
Digging your trenches
Put me on the front line
Leave me with a dumb mind
With no defenses
But your defense is
If you can't stand to feel the pain then you are senseless

Since this,
I've grown up some
Different kinda figther
And when the darkness come, let it inside you
Your darkness is shining
My darkness is shining
Have faith in myself

I've seen a million numbered doors on the horizon
Now which is the future you choosen before you gone dying
I'll tell you about a secret I've been undermining
Every little lie in this world comes from dividing
Say you're my lover
say you're my homie
Tilt my chin back, slit my troath
Take a bath in my blood, get to know me
All out of my secrets
All my enemies are turning into my teachers

Light's blinding
No way dividing
What's yours or mine when everything's shining
Your darkness is shining
My darkness is shining
Have faith in ourselves


Yes I'm only loving, only trying to only love
And yes, that's what I'm trying to is only loving

Yes I'm only loving, trying to only love
I swear to god I'm only trying to be loving

Yes I'm only lonely loving
And yes I'm only feeling only loving, only loving
Ya say it ain't loving, loving but my loving

I wanna only love til I'm only loving
I swear to god I'm only loving.
Trying to be loving, loving, loving, loving, loving, loving, love

Yes I'm only loving, yes I'm trying to only love
I swear to god I'm trying but I'm only loving
Ya say it ain't loving, loving, loving, loving, love my love

But I'm only loving, loving, loving
The Truth.

Guess What I Just Finished Watching?

When it comes to action cartoons that are heavy on action and lighthearted moments, Samurai Champloo is it! It's got an awesome soundtrack, great stories (hardly any connected), great sequences, characters and the art is amazing! Not since Cowboy Bebop has a show of this sort caught my attention (yeah, yeah, i know i'm late to the party sheesh!) and shows of this caliber are tough to come by.

Seeing this show makes me wish i had access to Nujabes' (peace to his soul) stuff on vinyl so i could wear some of this stuff out! i'll find something, no matter how long it takes (expense is an entirely different matter, but i can dream can't i?). Oh well, for those of you into action cartoons and especially Japanese animation that don't know about it, Samurai Champloo is a multifaceted gem worth checking out (not a bad way to start the New Year either).

Later (listening to this song at least two more times)...
