Neptune's Birthday

Postby Elen Sila » Fri Feb 25, 2011 5:36 am

Neptune's first birthday is coming up. This year, on 11 july by my own calculations, or 12 july according to Wikipedia, it will be the one year anniversary of Neptune's discovery by humans, on 23 september 1846, in neptunian years.

Therefore, on the night of 11 july, shortly before midnight, I will post in this thread a song dedicated to the planet Neptune.

I missed Neptune's birthday. I even set my phone to alert me a few days in advance. It rang, I didn't know why. I realized later. I'm sort of crying at the moment. It's like I can't do anything I say I'm going to do.

I don't think Neptune will mind a belated card.

Exactly. Given the crawlingly slow nature of Neptunian years, it will probably still be his birthday for quite some time, anyway.

It's not that. It's just a bunch of shit all happening to me at once, and all seeming like it's my fault. And then, on top of everything else, I suddenly forget I was going to write a song for Neptune on a certain day, and didn't remember at all. It's like the camel's proverbial last straw. I just feel really disproportionately depressed about it.

School starts in late August and I still have neither funding nor admission. I've already wasted two years of my fucking life, and I'm extremely scared I'm going to end up having to waste another fucking year, just because I didn't start applying for this stuff early enough.

Can't you join during the Spring Semester, JIC? I have a friend who's doing that because he's got to wait and go through military training for the college money.

When did you apply? Didn't you wait too long for applications last year? Or was it the year before? They usually give deadlines of when you have to have everything handed in to get it back on time on the websites and things.

Yeah, hopefully. It'd still be 2.5 years wasted instead of 2.

I don't even know what's going on.

I handed in an appeal for reinstatement of financial aid back in early june, when Osama Bin Laden's body was still warm. I kept checking in, like once a week, and they kept saying it hadn't been considered yet.

I went to my advisor, and got a sheet to reapply for admission, which I'll probably fill out tomorrow or the next day. But I still need my financial aid, or else I'll have to withdraw less than a week after classes start, so I don't owe anything.

And even if they do give me my financial aid, it's so late now that all the classes are probably filled up, so I'll have to take a bunch of useless general ed classes anyway. Even if I don't lose the year, I'll still basicly lose a semester because of all these motherfucking delays.

I'm just angry and anxious and depressed and everything, all at once.

Financial aid always takes longer than actual course enrolment. I had to apply for mine in November, and I started my course on Feb.28th.

Also, what does Osama Bin Laden have to do with it? It seems strange that you would bother mentioning his death in this context.

Please accept these lyrics as a tentative idea of what the song will eventually be like. (For those of you who are not aware, there is a weather feature on Neptune that was photographed by Voyager 2, which the astronomers called "the wizard's eye". The "eye of glass" refers to the Voyager spacecraft; the "dragon storm" refers to a weather feature on Saturn.)

The song is in a minor key, and I have a tune for the vocals, but no tune for the instrumentals yet. The last line is either a spoken word fade-out finish, or else the first line of a stanza I'll write later.

Your wizard’s eye
Your wizard’s eye
Your wizard’s eye sees my eye of glass go by

Your wizard’s eye
Your wizard’s eye
Your wizard’s eye sees my soul sailing by

Your wizard’s eye
Your wizard’s eye
Your wizard’s eye peers out from a dark brow

Your wizard’s eye
Your wizard’s eye
Your wizard’s eye sees me and cares not how

I came here, I came here
Know no fear, know no fear
I’ll be only a short time, then I’ll be out of here

I came here, I came here
For your year, for your year
It’s been less than one for you, but I’ll be out of here

No dragon storm endures your wizard’s eye...

I applied for reinstatement for financial aid the day after he died. That's why I remember exactly when I applied. There's not necessarily any causal connection. It's just mnemonic.
