Cogs can think.

I'm a mere, tiny, insignificant cog in a whole clockwork of stupidity.
The little cog that wanted to break free, I am.

Gallery play

I bought the acoustic re-release of "Jagged Little Pill" yesterday (Alanis re-released it as an acoustic version to celebrate the ten-year anniversery of the best selling debut* album of all time (30 million copies)-- and dear lord, I never knew an artist could be so much better than all her competition. This is insane!

In football, we call this gallery play. One team is so superior to the other, that it can do whatever it wants on the pitch, including fancy tricks with the ball and all that. That's exactly what this acoustic re-release of Alanis' breakthrough is: gallery play.

Recommended to anyone who can appreciate real music.

* Jagged Little Pill wasn't her real debut album; it actually was her third album. However, you can see this as her international debut.

Now playing: Alanis Morissette, "Perfect" (acoustic)

PS: Just came across this quote on the web about Alanis' supersmash "Ironic":

"Irony is the disparity between what you expect will happen, and what does happen. So raining on your wedding day isn't ironic, it's just crappy. It would have been ironic if she had lived in a place like Seattle, and traveled to the desert of Mexico for a wedding and it ended up raining there, but not in Seattle. Alanis always gets the last laugh though. We all sit here, saying her song isn't ironic, but in fact, that's pretty ironic that she wrote a song called 'Ironic' that wasn't really ironic. Those Canadians are pretty crafty."


Priceless!!
