Oh Look, Krill!

Oh don't worry. Whales don't eat clownfish, they eat krill.


Eventually I’ll Be Fine But For Now, I’m Not.

Lyrics after the jump.

I’m clearing my phone
Clearing the wall of the pictures you gave to me
I can throw your letters away
But what to do with my soul
And you made up your mind
Now it’s the time to be done with my memories
I will try’n get on with my life
But i still care for you

Chorus:
So don’t lead me on
Saying that I’ll be fine
Yes I may live and get on with with sometime
But I will not be fine

And so, I’m trying to think
Of ways that a life without you may just better me
Busy me, with busy things
But always wondering how you are doing
And so, I’m going to try
To numb off the part of my brain that’s the life of me
Second prize for all of my life
‘Cause you will not be mine

Chorus

But I see you all the time
but I still feel the same
How as that change the things I say
When not speaking out is allowed

I will not be fine
I will not be fine
Yes I may live and get on with some time
But I will not be fine
Yes I may live and get on with some time
But I will not be fine


Walk With Me In Hell

There might be a chance that Lamb of God might be coming to our sunny (and sometimes rainy) shores in 2010. To say that I’m fucking excited would a superb understatement.

They are awesome.

It’s insane but interesting. I’m just not sure if the locals would actually do this since, you have to admit, that we’re a wussy lot.

I really, REALLY want to go. Anyone game?


Cheating On Voldermort?

I was listening to Foreigner’s Hot Blooded yesterday when this line caught my attention:

Now it’s up to you, can we make a secret rendezvous?
Oh, before we do, you’ll have to get away from you know who

So, does that mean that the singer is out to bang Voldermort’s girlfriend? Wouldn’t he be worried that Voldie is just going to Avada Kedavra his ass?


If I Were A Boy

The current song that makes my breath hitch every time I hear it.

If I were a boy even just for a day
I’d roll out of bed in the morning
And throw on what I wanted
And go drink beer with the guys

And chase after girls
I’d kick it with who I wanted
And I’d never get confronted for it
‘Cause they stick up for me

If I were a boy
I think I could understand
How it feels to love a girl
I swear I’d be a better man

I’d listen to her
‘Cause I know how it hurts
When you lose the one you wanted
‘Cause he’s taking you for granted
And everything you had got destroyed

If I were a boy
I would turn off my phone
Tell everyone it’s broken
So they’d think that I was sleeping alone

I’d put myself first
And make the rules as I go
‘Cause I know that she’d be faithful
Waiting for me to come home, to come home

If I were a boy
I think I could understand
How it feels to love a girl
I swear I’d be a better man

I’d listen to her
‘Cause I know how it hurts
When you lose the one you wanted
‘Cause he’s taking you for granted
And everything you had got destroyed

It’s a little too late for you to come back
Say it’s just a mistake
Think I’d forgive you like that
If you thought I would wait for you
You thought wrong

But you’re just a boy
You don’t understand
And you don’t understand, oh
How it feels to love a girl
Someday you wish you were a better man

You don’t listen to her
You don’t care how it hurts
Until you lose the one you wanted
‘Cause you’re taking her for granted
And everything you had got destroyed
But you’re just a boy


They Gave Me Goosebumps

I’ve never been that a great of a musician and even my tastes for music may raise a few eyebrows but I know what I like and I know what’s good. Anything that gives me goosebumps from beginning to end is not only good but awesome in my books.

I saw this clip of the Teresa CarreƱo Youth Orchestra on TED.com a while back and the video could still give me goosebumps.


Band Geek Memories

The first three years in my high school band were the happiest time in my teenage life. I enjoyed every practice session. I looked forward to it and I couldn’t understand why other people didn’t seem to have the same passion as I did. Sure it was a bitch to practice for a performance but I enjoyed every minute of it. I spent so much time with the band that my studies suffered but I didn’t care. I thought that making music was fun and for that three years, I felt like I belonged somewhere, (yes, yes, teenage angst and all that) but that was a long time ago.

While randomly looking for songs on Blip.fm, I thought, why not just see if they have that overture piece that I played when I was in the band and they did! I was amazed!

It brought back so many memories. This was the piece that we played for the first indoor band competition that my school band had attended and we won the bronze medal. Not bad for a school that has never entered the competition before. (The next one they entered, they only got a certificate of participation. That’s because the instructor sucked but that is another story.)

So anyway, after listening to the song, I thought why don’t I search for the other piece that we played for the competition. We played 2 pieces, one given by the competition people and the other chosen by the instructor.

They didn’t have it on Blip.fm but a simple Google search found it for me.

Hardy Mertens – The Heavenly Flute Player And The Dragon King –

I never thought that I would here these songs again but I’m glad that I’m wrong. To say that I’m having a lot of fun with this, is an understatement.

Once a band geek, always a band geek.
