"Young Shields" by Casiotone for the Painfully Alone
"there's a shield around us
we are heady we are groundless
& we burn our friends & kill their names
build insecure & petty fames
& tattoo things that we believe
stars & skulls & hearts in half-sleeves"
..it's a great track - I recommend checking it out!

i am so glad i found this place!! haha.. i was starting to think that i was the only human in the world who LOVED words. i think they're beautiful. my love of lists is borderline excessive as well... so word lists .... wow, i can't wait to dig through all the books i've read!! (i circle them... even though some say it makes my book look like a mess)... i think there is beauty is chaos of that nature.
*i also tend to be unnecessarily verbose at the most inappropriate times...* *ahem*....
i am glad you saw my list! i'm only learning spanish now... but i'm addicted! MORE WORDS! and i guess i just noticed this phenomenon more than once.
and... if there is more than one item (of any kind...) = list.
let me know if you think of anymore! i'll be sure to add them here as well ...

i use this word as a verb -- use it to replace the (extremely boring) word disappear.
ex: 'pulled a phantom last night' ... 'sorry i phantomed on ya...'
