Lyrics and what-not… and a game! II

June 05th, 2017 | Category: Life,Random Thought,Thoughts on Music

So, seeing that nobody won my lyrics game, though lots of folks viewed it, perhaps the game’s a little too rough. I’m going to give away a few answers to see if we can’t get a winner…

Here’s the lyrics list, with a few answers filled-in. I don’t want to make it too easy. C’non, people, hit the google machine! I want somebody to win!

But I got a message from the hummingbird, he gave me a warning in disguise… 

Just one question before I pack, when you fuck it up later do I get my money back? – Aimee Mann, How Am I Different?, Bachelor No. 2 (Or, The Last Remains of the Dodo)

I love you for what I am not, I did not want what I have got…

Won’t you follow me down to the Rose Parade…

Oh it’s all just a lost cause… – Priscilla Ahn, Lost Cause, When You Grow Up

Drinking champagne from a paper cup is never quite the same and every sip’s moving through my eyes and…

Don’t you know that I love you? Sometimes I feel like only a cold still life, only a frozen still life… that fell down here to lay beside you. – Elliott Smith, Angel in the Snow, New Moon

Like I said, the first person to note the…

Lyrics and what-not… and a game!

June 01st, 2017 | Category: Life,Random Thought,Thoughts on Music

So, I wonder… Did any of my readers who read Music in the dark know all the songs playing on the fellow’s iPhone at the story’s end? I picked them at random, whatever popped up on my mix, I used it in the story. It was sort of an exercise, making the story fit the songs, while still keeping the story intact. Two of the songs are super easy, they’ve had plenty of exposure. The others are more obscure, which is a shame, they’re beautiful songs. That said, let’s play a game…

The first person to note the…

Just thoughts

May 19th, 2017 | Category: Life,Random Thought

I’m tired.

I’m nervous.

I’m alone.

I miss… someone who probably doesn’t want their name written here.

I want to write about some books I’ve read, records I’ve listened to, movies I’ve seen.

I have a bunch of tattoos to post.

I realized the long-time goal of acquiring my dream headphones. They’re the headphones I’ll use until I quit breathing, which is a little morbid.

I’m a little morbid.

I’ve lost much.

In a rut

I’m in a very ruttish rut, but all ruts end one way or another.

Just wow…

The current election cycle isn’t my first rodeo, but it is by far the most bizarre political horror movie I’ve ever seen.

I know my posts have been… sparse.

I want a pony.

(I’m thinking about writing entirely in non sequiturs).

Kitty on a Table…

Kitty on a Table…

Kitty on a Table…

I feel like this photograph has at least forty-seven metaphors within its kitty-filled frame full of kittyness.

What exactly is kittyness? Well, it’s an ephemeral quality possessed by kitties, sort of the kitty’s mettle, the kitty’s radiance.

As for the metaphors, they’re pretty obvious. How can you NOT see them?
