I keep thinking there are hidden cameras in the room with me.
I act to these cameras when stupid people are being stupid around me and expect all the people who are secretly watching to be agreeing with me. But the only problem is that THERES NO ONE THERE!!!!!
I might stop trying to be normal and embrace insanity, it could be fun.

I guess it'll all settle down after a while and things will get back into a standard norm, but until then i'm going to really try just to get on with things and be myself, which I guess includes finishing this blog because writing about things just isn't me either!

Most people will not have heard of him, thats a shame for them. His music is exceptionally hard to describe, but well worth listening to.
My friend thinks its cult music, but only based on the titles of the songs (the highlight surely being 'The Black Hawk War, or, How to Demolish an Entire Civilization and Still Feel Good About Yourself in the Morning, or, We Apologize for the Inconvenience but You're Going to Have to Leave Now, or, "I have fought the Big Knives and will continue to fight them until they are off our lands!"' – that's just one song title, not lots of them).
So yeah, it's slightly odd, and may take a few listens to understand what you're actually listening to, but when it clicks it's closer to perfection than most musicians can dream of.
Stevens is currently undertaking a frankly ridiculous project of making an album for all 50 states in the US, of which he has currently covered Michigan and Illinios. And he's not making it easy on himself either. Illinois, the lastest album, has 22 tracks on it, so it's fair to say he's got a while to go. But if the standard stays the same, I can easily see my CD collection increasing by another 48.
