Song Similarities

Similarities between songs are impossible to avoid.  But I’m still entertained whenever I find them.

The choruses of Kill (2000) by Sufjan Stevens and Roman Candle (1994) by Elliott Smith are really similar.  Mostly its the lyrics that make it stand out.

Roman Candle by Elliott Smith

"I want to hurt him
I want to give him pain
I’m a roman candle
My head is full of flames”

Kill by Sufjan Stevens

"I want to kill him
I want to cut his brain
And when it’s over
I know I’ll feel okay”

Open mic at White Rock Coffee.  You should’ve been there.  The clouds opened, shining light and raining money upon the listeners.

Hacked!

The main Miserable Crush website got hacked.  It’s my own fault, using an absurdly outdated version of Joomla to run it.

As far as hacks go, it was pretty mild.  There were a bunch of new registered users and a ton of new posts advertising lawn mowers, porn, and something in German which I didn’t ever translate.  None of this even got onto the front page, as they never figured out that anything tagged as “blog” got posted there.

As far as I know, the site could’ve been hacked for months without me noticing, because I never check on it… Which is why we’re moving everything over to Tumblr.  I update this way more than I ever did the main site, so we might as well have Tumblr as the main site.

Hey, it’s good enough for Sufjan Stevens.
