 The sky looks pissed and the wind talks back...


Here is The Chain by Ingrid.

Now put it on your mp3 player and go outside.  
It is nice out there.

I'm a whole lot in like and maybe even a little bit in love with 2008 so far.

And Old Navy commercials...

We walk the city
I talk to you, understand
So what you tell me
How I know this place like the back of my hand

My arms get cold
In February air
Please don't lose hold
Of me, out there

Lights - February Air

Accidents, Fargo, Snow, and other reasons November receives a downgrade

Status Update:

It's not you it's me... oh wait it is you conversations and funerals in addition to accidents (mildly special one for me and a mildly serious one for Glenn) and Fargo leave me with the impression of November 2007...

All my Luvin...

There seems to be a pattern here... I can't wait until I'm rich enough to pay british men to sing to me on demand.

A delightful british boy's new (or at least fairly new) jazz album...
I would advise listening to Get Your Way, London Skies, Oh God, 7 Days to Change Your Life, and.... oh who am I kidding... this whole album is magical.

Jamie Cullum - Catching Tales

The special edition in a two part series.  All of the music from the musical "Across the Universe" that warped my mind in a glorius explosion of Beatles magic.  The hippies got some things right... All you need is love.

Across the Universe [Disc 1]

Across the Universe [Disc 2]

The two songs from the Across the Universe Deluxe Edition that didn't make the cut for the Amazon version.  No one quite knows why they are missing, but my old friend Best Buy knew better and my version came complete.

Edge of the world

Everyone has to start somewhere, why not in the beginning?

Title: Words: 100
Purpose: Mild amusement and to get it out of my head.

Edge of the world

Rationalizing- Musically speaking

Because E works at a Bible Camp:

"Fourteen hymns for the heathen
First hymn: the son of God complex
Second hymn: the prodigal damsel
Third hymn: the tree stump of knowledge
Choking on Adam’s apple"

Cursive - Hymns for the Heathens

Because real life sucks:

"How did it come to be
That you and I must be
Far away from each other every day?
Why must I spend my time
Filling up my mind
With facts and figures that never add up anyway?
They never add up anyway"

Fountains of Wayne - Hey Julie

Because it's a walking dancing contradiction:

"My heart could take a chance
But my two feet can't find a way
You think that I could muster up a little soft, shoop devil sway
But I don't feel like dancin'
No sir, no dancin' today."
Scissor Sisters - I Don't Feel Like Dancing

Because admitting you have a problem isn't the first step, having the problem is:
Warning: This is a rainy days and Mondays kind of song, not the "stay in bed" cheerful song by The Lovebugs

"I gave up coffee and cigarettes
I hate to say it hasn’t helped me yet"

Michelle Featherstone - Coffee & Cigarettes

Because you already know "Wanna put on a tight skirt and flirt
With a stranger'":

"Oh such grace
Oh such beauty
And lipstick and callous and fishnets and malice.
Oh darlin'
You're a million ways to be cruel."

Ok Go - A Million Ways to Be Cruel

Because maybe:

"Maybe I'm Amazed At The Way You Love Me All The Time
Maybe I'm Afraid Of The Way I Love You
Maybe I'm Amazed At The Way You Pulled Me Out Of Time
And Hung Me On A Line
Maybe I'm Amazed At The Way I Really Need You"
Jem - Maybe I'm Amazed

For the record... I take requests.

Still not working for that career.  After helping J with mild layout crisises... crisi... crisis plural... I miss it. 
Making money and not paying rent thereby possibly making enough money to pay future rent.
Spending 13 hours a day breathing/covered in/walking through dirt.
My teeth look really clean compared to the rest of me.
Falling asleep on the couch at 10 or so and feeling like an 80 year old.
Rainy days mean fewer trucks.  And fewer crack snorting truck drivers asking inappropriate personal questions.
Unless they loaded the day before.
Sometimes TV is good to me... like today with a Jake 2.0 marathon.  It was like Jim Halpert's studlier computer geek twin gains superhero-esque powers through nanite technology accidentally injected into his blood stream.  AND he is a spy. 
We're out of coffee because a skunk was using a conveyer belt as a treadmill and I guess coffee gets rid of that lovely odor.  There is no up to no coffee...

And now for something completely...

I was going on a perfectly emo rant about farming sucking but the page disappeared thanks to my pop up blocker for some reason or another, so the abridged version.  Creepy hired men like being paid but not working because they are scamming the medical system.  The tornado missed it's target by about a mile because she is still next door.  The tornado did however manage to bring the hail storm through... twice.  I am sure the rainbow over our house while the rain, tornado, and hail were going full force was meant to be ironic.

But somewhere over the emo there is a silver lining and possibly an incredibly witty hipster fairytale by the sound of that phrase... anyway... I spent the day in Canada with Ma on Wednesday.  While she got her hair did I bought and read about a third of Stardust and it is magic.  I got the same hair cut that Miss Manitoba got when she came to get her hair did so I find that mildly amusing.  And then we spent the day and our money on incredibly useless albeit somewhat delightful things like clothing and jewelry that I didn't need but who am I to argue with five dollar pants? 

So continuing on this theme of I don't know what I bring you the song that vh1 played me that made my morning cup of coffee that much better...

Vanessa Carlton - Nolita Fairytale
