But he Did

March 21st, 2013 by Bekah Brunstetter

I am unashamed, or maybe like just a little bit ashamed, of how much I love this sappy Jason Mraz song, I Won’t Give up. It’s basically about, you’re a crazy person, I’m a crazy person, but let’s let each other be crazy, and not give up on each other. Some lyrics:

Well, I won’t give up on us
Even if the skies get rough
I’m giving you all my love
I’m still looking up

And when you’re needing your space
To do some navigating
I’ll be here patiently waiting
To see what you find

I love this sentiment. It’s passionate and ridiculous, but also mature and sane. The internet informs me that he was dating another singer / songwriter for quite sometime, so obvs, this song is about her. But then, the thing is: the internet also tells me that, kind of out of nowhere, he broke off their engagement and left her. And so, he did Give Up. But perhaps he tried first, at least? And perhaps this song is said trying?

The Terrible things I miss

March 19th, 2013 by Bekah Brunstetter

My phone and facebook tell that it’s currently that terrible time in New York, when it feels like it’s been cold for ten years, and it’s supposed to be nearly Spring, but it’s not, and it wont stop snowing 13%, and all you want is to step outside NOT wearing a coat that doubles your body mass and NOT die. I miss this terrible, wonderful time.  Other terrible things I also miss:

– Being bored with all your music, or bored with music in general, so to amuse your self while waiting for the train, you watch some rats chase each other.

– Attempting to dress yourself in the Summer, then after 10 minutes on the train where someone appears to be eating a lasagna with their hands, you are covered in sweat and other people, and it’s like the previous shower never happened, at all.

–  When your metrocard finds the perfect time to expire, and it’s right when the train’s pulling up, and it’s 15 minutes til the next one, or it’s just, DELAY.

– Wondering if a smell is a dying person or a really nice kabob.

– Indecision re: whether to take the train or walk the 20 blocks, and doing the math as to which would make more sense, time wise, since you know your city block walking average, and wasting time doing said math, to the point where, you probably should have just taken the train, on which someone will probably be eating an entire lasagna, with their hands.

– All of it. Every little stinky, stupid part.

I Love this.

March 18th, 2013 by Bekah Brunstetter

A house by mine has a tree out front decorated with vintage chandeliers, and the whole thing is coin operated, and it’s really, really lovely at night, which I won’t show you, because it wasn’t night when I was walking by it, and so use your imagination machines:

You can’t make this stuff up. I couldn’t assign this as a quirky trait to a character if I even TRIED.

Basically

March 17th, 2013 by Bekah Brunstetter

When you finish a marathon, they wrap you in a foil, shower you with bagels and crackers, and then everyone stands are you and tells you how awesome you are. Basically, we should all finish marathons, all of the time. GO BLAINE!

my favoriteist time

March 15th, 2013 by Bekah Brunstetter

Second to any time I’m ever at the Dixie Classic Fair, my most favorite time is when I’m writing something new. I told myself I’d write a movie this year, and now I’m doing it. It’s the best time because you’re sort of in a weird haze, and you can’t wait to get home to it, and everything relates to it. Then, it’s finished and you give it a good read. Then comes the painful realization that it’s not as good as you thought it was, and  it’s derivative and / or unfunny, and then you cry and second guess and rewrite, but that’s all SO MUCH LATER. Now is the best time.

Schwag

March 14th, 2013 by Bekah Brunstetter

Original Works was the first company to publish me, namely You May Go Now, my REALLY STRANGE PLAY IN WHICH A MAN LIVES IN A REFRIGERATOR AND A GIRL FINDS OUT SHE WAS KIDNAPPED AFTER LEARNING HOW TO MAKE A LAYER CAKE. Not sure. Years later, it’s getting a production in Vegas, which gives me an incredibly valid reason to go, but I can’t. But I do get this free T-shirt which is almost as good as going to Vegas, shimmying into a sparkly tube top, pretending to know how to gamble, losing 500 bucks and ending up face down in a plate of cheese fries, which is what going to Vegas is like, in my mind.
