Should I stay

posted 13 October 2003

Gabrielle

Here I am,
Waiting for a sign,
I never seem to know
If you want me in your life,
Where do I stand
I just don't know
I never feel I know you
'Cause you blow hot and you blow cold

It seems I've grown attached
Though we're not the perfect match
I just can't explain

Should I stay
Should I go
Could I ever really stand to let you go
Can you now find the right words to say
That maybe I'm getting in your way

I feel your warmth,
got me wanting more,
you've left the door half open
I'm in two minds to explore,
But then again am I being honest,
Being truthful to myself,
Can I see my life without you
Could I be with someone else

It seems I've grown attached,
though we're not the perfect match
I just can't explain

Should I stay
Should I go
Could I ever really stand to let you go
Can you now find the right words to say
That maybe I'm getting in your way

Should I stay
Should I go
Could I ever really stand to let you go
Can you now find the right words to say
That maybe I'm getting in your way

It seems I've grown attached
Though we're not the perfect match

Should I stay
Should I go
Could I ever really stand to let you go
Can you now find the right words to say
That maybe I'm getting in your way

Bloggers are like...

posted 13 October 2003

Now, I try not to meta-blog too much -- gives you hairy palms and sends you blind -- but there've been two very good pieces recently that I found via the surprisingly good iWire (it's corporate... but clever, dammit!). First is that bloggers are like DJs: they sample the best bits of older, and mix it in new ways with other things, in a way that's equally creative. I'm not sure what that makes ShinyPixel, since Rik is a DJ who blogs, but we'll mix that metaphor when we get to it.

The other piece is by William Gibson (the novelist) who says that as a professional writer, he finds blogging is like boiling a kettle with the lid off. It sort of suggests that if I could stop blogging for 24 hours, I might achieve something useful. Which is, to be fair, almost certainly true.

But there's no shortage of similies for blogging, so who knows?
