Day 131

Yeesh, last night was rough. It was a weird night at work, made difficult by my tumultuous emotional state. I might have cried all the way home for no real reason.

Today is better, but I'm feeling distracted. I think I'm going to go read some more Game of Thrones....

Speaking of Game of Thrones, I love, love, love soundtrack music. My favorite composer is Hans Zimmer.

Day 132

I have two things to say.


I can't just say I'm tired.

I have to say...


THAT, my friends, was a long day. And I didn't enjoy a whole lot of it.
So glad it's done.


I love Bjork.

So much!

Don't turn your nose up at me.

If you don't like Bjork, it's because you haven't listened to the right song.

THIS is the right song.

I can never put a finger on exactly what this song means to me.

I can only say it evokes passionate emotion in me.

Happiness, Longing, Fear, Love, Melancholy

It's all here.

God Bless You, Bjork.

God Fucking Bless You.

Day 133

Do you have a Summer Song?

You know, that song you play when you first smell summer in the air.

The song that means Sun and Freedom and Rolled-Down Windows.

This is my Summer Song.

Vieux Farka Toure is an amazing guitarist born to a Grammy-winning guitarist, Ali Farka Toure, out of Mali.

This song has played at the beginning of my every summer these past few years.

And I have a feeling that it will be my Summer Song for many more years to come.

Day 143

This weekend I took a trip out-of-state with my mom, her friend, and my sister to go see my brother play his first solo gig.

Things I Did -

Ate fabulous meals.
Visited the restaurant I ate at before my debut as Clara in The Nutcracker
Diagnosed my mother's stomach problem. (We'll hear in a minute if I was correct.)
Sang back-up for my brother.
Got drunk and confronted my father.

...Anyways. Today is overcast and rainy, and my feet are still recovering from my transition to serving...

So with my feet propped up and the sound of drizzling outside, I'm in the mood for something classic.

Day 147

Since music posts are all I can seem to manage these days, let's just go with that.

Yesterday in the hour I had before work, I posted "Love is a Battlefield" by Pat Benatar, because (1) amazing song and (2) I feel like it's my anthem to the conquerable troubles Zee and I are having to face right now.

Today I'm not going to be personal. Instead of looking inward, I will be looking outward.

I have become something shy of obsessed with the History Channel's show "Ancient Aliens." The premise of the show is to go over the literal MOUNTAIN of evidence that points to extraterrestrials visiting us in our ancient past. Everything from ancients possessing knowledge of stars too far for the human eye to see to their knowledge of the lay of the the Antarctica coastline miles beneath the ocean. From cave-paintings all over the world depicting beings wearing helmets to evidence that our ancestors somehow had possession of nuclear tools, flying crafts, and building knowledge that surpasses our own.

Mmm, like I said, getting close to obsessed...

So when Katy Perry's "Extraterrestial" came out, I jumped all over that.

A few things to say about this video:

1. I think Kanye is a talented and snobby, slimy pit of ultimate douchery.

2. I hate it when rappers remix a song, and what they rap has nothing to do with the message of the song.

3. This video is gorgeous. It's neither over- or under-done, in my opinion.

4. I want Katy Perry's hair-do in the last section of the video. Must find a way to wear my hair like that about once a week when my hair is long.

Day 155

I promised myself I wouldn't miss the song link-up!

I also promised that I wouldn't link up another foreign song, but tonight my sister and I are watching Devdas...

I've seen it before - and it's such a sad movie - so I'm not able to pay perfect attention to it.

The parts that do have my full attention are the songs - so beautiful and emotional!

This song in particular has meaning. On the day he left to study abroad, Parvati lit a candle to guide her love, Devdas, home. Ten years later, word has finally arrived that he is heading back.

Even though they were just children when he went, she never forgot and she never let the lamp die. This song is an illustration of the lamp's fortitude. The servants try to extinguish the light several times in this song, but nothing works. It's almost like the lamp, and Pavarti's love, is magical and all-powerful.

sorry I was gone for so long
well, five days isn't long
work and Zee were stressing me out
I needed a break
I should be back now
if work doesn't absolutely kill me tomorrow
I should be able to post again
cross your fingers
