Speaking kind of cryptically
Cowboy Junkies, "Speaking Confidentially"
I chose this for my journal's title mostly because a journal kept on the web is not confidential, and since in writing it I contradict the principles I laid forth to keep it by and also because I contradict the last thing I say everytime I say the next thing I say, a contradictory title seemed appropriate.
Also a Cowboy Junkies title is appropriate because as long as their next effort is stronger than Miles from Our Home and they deign to tour somewhere in my general vicinity, they are my favorite band.
Besides, this song names the four usual ways I do speak. If there were a lyric about speaking contradictorily, it'd be perfect. But "contradictorily," even if I didn't just make it up, doesn't fit the cadence. Pity.
