Unlike most people I have nothing that resembles a regular sleep schedule. It happens when it happens and doesn’t sometimes when I want it to. Regardless, my superior intellect allows me to ponder (and sometimes solve) some of the most pressing issues of our time. Hmm…well that’s true if choosing between downloading a movie or a new album. Life or death decisions like that are very important. Here are a few more things I think about as I am slipping off into dreamland. Read the rest of this entry »

It’s easy for me to churn out music inspired lists because I don’t usually have to think about them. For one reason or another (usually a futile attempt at impressing the fairer sex by being a new aged sensitive guy who wears his heart on his sleeve) music has become an extention of my being. Since I have no musical talent at all I find this a bit odd, but I try not to think about it too much. Brains were made for destroying with drugs and alcohol not thinking.
Previous lists have included some of my most played songs so this list will include those songs, but will have additional songs that have not been previously mentioned. This is so you get an accurate reflection of what it is I am listening to, or at least a flash view of my immediate likes. Keep in mind that I have more than 5200 songs in my media player, not to mention many more on CDs I haven’t imported onto my computer. Read the rest of this entry »
Hopefully this event will take place later rather than sooner, but in my opinion it is never too early to start planning. Who am I kidding? Anyone who knows me personally knows that planning is pretty much my kryptonite. It saps all of my energy and is an effort in futility when I am the one doing the planning. In any event, some of the songs I want played have been in other lists so I won’t include them in the five, but they are definitely worth noting. “Spiritual” by Johnny Cash (things you want to experience before dying) would be at the top of this list because it just sounds like an appropriate song to play in that circumstance, “Bold as Love” by Jimi Hendrix would be appropriate because it’s my favorite song, and Justin Timberlake’s “Sexyback” (songs I have listened to more than four times in a row) and Soulja Boy’s “Crank That” (guiltiest guilty pleasures) make the list because people need to be dancing and having fun as well. Enough of what’s not on the list, here are the songs that made it: Read the rest of this entry »
Depression seems to be a common theme amongst my plethora of (unstable) friends. Inevitably I know someone who is going through a rough patch either because they aren’t on meds, they forgot to take their meds, or they ran out of their meds. Yours truly is no exception to this rule, and I regularly deal with the unfortunate affliction that is depression. Today I was reminded of a song by New Buffalo. “Cheer Me Up Thank You” is a good poppy tune that puts me in a lighthearted mood, but it got me thinking about the things that are able to physically and psychologically cheer me up: Read the rest of this entry »
In my mind I like to believe that I’m a beacon of hope in this ever expanding sea of intolerance and tumult. Judging people based solely on their aptitude rather that some preconceived notion instilled in me from an early age. Then again, this is the same mind that considers the Hills to be must see TV and has Ramona Quimby Age 8 in the list of top literary works of all time (list forthcoming), so it is obviously a bit off. Just like everyone does, whether they admit it or not, when I find out certain things about you my immediate impression is altered. Depending on how those personal preferences line up with mine, this could be extremely good or extremely bad. This is an unfortunate fault of mine because it’s harder for someone to emerge from under my cloud of suspicion (even if worthy) once I find out certain things regardless of how long I have known them. There are people I’ve known for years who make statements that make me question my friendship with them. Is this wrong? Yes, but at least I can recognize my own bias and am attempting to change it. So here are a few things that I have judged you for if you have exposed them to me: Read the rest of this entry »
Chassi did this video and I didn’t want it to get stuck on the comments page without being seen.
While there are quite a few remakes I enjoy, as noted in the previous post, there are a few that make my blood absolutely boil. These two lists were actually spawned when I heard a song on this list, and it angered me so I was determined to let the entire world know about my frustration. Hmm…I guess the entire world could potentially know, but the only people who will are the 6 friends I have. Thanks guys, you are the best. Read the rest of this entry »
Sometimes it’s hard to be completely objective when you listen to someone cover a song you truly enjoy. In fact, it is virtually impossible to be impartial, which is why finding a cover you like is such a rewarding accomplishment. What makes one cover loved and another hated is an inexact science. Some of the ones I like take a song and slow it down giving it a softer more demure feel, yet the same can be said of some of the ones I hate. Whatever. Here’s my list of song I like just because I do: Read the rest of this entry »
Robot battle dancing is my chosen profession, but surprisingly there isn’t lots of money on the circuit right now. Steve Jobs and Bill Gates were initially interested until they realized there weren’t actually any robots involved. Check out my styles: Read the rest of this entry »
