I have claimed the em dash as my new favorite form of punctuation.
Think about it.
It’s an after thought, of which I have so many. I can list all of the things I should have said, or was too shy to say, or didn’t think of until it was too late. Really, on the computer, it is just a series of numbers; — : — how strange is it to be something completely different on the inside. I really think most things are like that. I mean, I don’t really think I am, but I know myself very well so perhaps I am biased.
There is also something mysterious about the em-dash like how I have not figured out a single way to get it to work on Microsoft Word, unless two dashes automatically string themselves together.
On a side note: the most exciting thing that has ever happened to me next to learning how to speak and walk , has happened. Candy Hearts is opening for Nana Grizol! Nana Grizol— the only band that can be literarily held in the same spectrum as the Weakerthans. My second favorite band. I am only playing under the condition that I don’t blurt out that I completely idolize non-rockstars and embarrass my friend, who booked the show. If only they were actually rockstars so when I drool, and stutter, and cross my arms over my guitar with uncertainty, it would make sense. I mean really…I might just die. If it were the Weakerthans I would for sure just die, but with this it has to be at least an 80% survival rate, like getting hit by a car driving at 45 mph.
it makes me sort of sad that they are playing some of the same nothing venues I get myself into.
