I’m really digging klezmer music.
It’s really strange how much I instantly liked it. If I had to compare it to something, I’d probably say it’s like Jewish swing music.
It’s times like this I wish I knew more Jewish people.
He sat at the crowded bar alone for hours. He left with clothes smelling like smoke and a growing sense of detachment.
"You’re leaving so soon?" he asked breathlessly. He had been told before that happiness was fleeting, but until then had no idea how temporary it could be.
An unbridled burst of creativity.
He slept soundlessly in his comfortable, albeit narrow quarters. The four walls surrounding him had become better friends and more like family than those who didn’t visit him anymore.

This is a story I wrote of a class once. I’m kind of self conscious about it, but I’ll never be a writer if I don’t let people read my work.
God’s Little Joke
“Hey, I’m home! Oh good, you’re still here. Let me tell you, I’ve had the most awful sinking feeling all afternoon that I just cannot explain.”
“Question: you a big baseball fan? Yeah, me neither, but I’ve been looking to get into it, you know? I mean, I know basically how the game goes. Actually, my dad took me to a couple games when I was younger. But anyway, check out this kickass bat I picked up on the way home. Nice, huh? Pretty good price too.
“Oh, what’s your opinion of Nine Inch Nails? Let me tell you, I love them. Well, him, I guess. Trent Reznor used do all the instrumentation by himself. That was before the newer albums, but I don’t really like them that much. My favorite Nine Inch Nails album is indisputably Pretty Hate Machine. Actually, that album has a really interesting back story. Trent Reznor wrote it in the wake of finding out his long-time girlfriend was cheating on him. The whole album is really an emotional rollercoaster. Have you ever found out a girlfriend was cheating on you? Man, that kind of thing could really fuck a guy up, you know? Like, in the head; mentally. Say, you wanna listen to it? I have that album on vinyl. It sounds amazing, especially when you crank it up loud. Oh, don’t worry about the neighbors; this apartment is really well soundproofed. That’s mostly my doing. I like to listen to music really loud; really clears my mind and gives me something to concentrate on. I’ll put in on after dinner, sound good? Yeah it does.
“Say, did I ever mention what I did? I mean, for a living. I’m a medical student. Pretty far along too. I could even be a doctor one day. That would be something, wouldn’t it? You bet it would. Oh man, the other day, I heard that funniest medical joke. Well, it’s more of a running joke rather. Not a conventional joke, like with a punch line or anything. But yeah, you know the temple? Like, the side of your head that hurts like fuck when you get a migraine? Yeah, turns out that’s the thinnest part of the skull. But the funny thing is, and you’re going to love this, is that a major artery runs right underneath it. Isn’t that hilarious? I thought about that all day and I thought to myself ‘you know who would get a real kick out of that?’ You, that’s who. They call it ‘God’s Little Joke.’
“You know, you’re a real agreeable guy. I can see why she likes you so much – whoops, I mean liked. Ha, sorry; slip of the tongue. But yeah, like, you seem like a great guy. Real quiet, sure, but other than that, not too shabby of a fellow. Not the kind of guy who would sleep with a guy’s girlfriend and then think the guy wouldn’t find out. Nope, not you; not this guy. Haha, wow, I’m shaking. I need to calm down. I’m gonna have a drink and put the record on now, rather than later. Do you want a drink? No? Well, don’t mumble. Oh yeah, I forgot.
“This is the first track; Head Like a Hole. Amazing song. Kinda fitting, don’t you think? Oh, right. That’s a surprise. Oh hey, remember that bat I was talking about? The baseball bat. The one I bought today. You want to see it? Just stay seated, I’ll grab it. Tadaa, here it is. What’s that? You want to hold it? Well, you seem to be all tied up at the moment, so I’ll just hang onto it right now.
“Oh! Here comes the best part of the song. ‘Bow down before the one you serve-
Crack, crack, crack!
“-You’re going to get what you deserve.”
