This is a Christmas song I wish they'd play in every dept. store everyday... but alas, they never will.

in search of.... [Sep. 1st, 2008|10:51 pm]

Just thought I'd put this out there to the LJ peeps I know. I'm looking for some decent podcast fiction. Be it short stories, or novel length. I'm not really into fantasy, and I'd prefer if it wasn't Sci-Fi either. Does anyone have any recomendations?

fridayfive from ymasen .. because.. well, it's music related, and why not? [Aug. 15th, 2008|11:04 am]

1. What is your favorite song right now? Why?
I'm not sure I have a favorite song right now, I've been finding myself listening to two CD's over and over, they are, in order:
The Last Shadow Puppets -
The Age of the Understatement
Neutral Milk Hotel -- In the Aeroplane Over the Sea ( I have cgoldfish to thank/blame for this one )

2. What genre of music makes you the happiest?
This REALLY depends on my mood, but I'd say that it's hard to go wrong with a good jam band (DMB, OAR, etc.)

3. What would you name your band and what kind of music would you play?
Hmmm, I've never put a lot of though into a band name, I guess if it ever came to the point where I needed one, I'd have to sit down with marq to come up with a good one. We would be either a jam band, or a hair metal band, depending on the others involved.

4.What's your favorite lyric of all time? Why?
Are you kidding? this is easy...

Its unintel-ligible
I just cant get it through my skull
Its hard to bargle nawdle zouss(? )
With all these marbles in my mouth

That song, and that stanza specifically crack me up every time I hear them. They just never seem to get old.

5. What band/artist could you never live without? Why?
I have some bands/artists that I absolutely love and adore, but, I could probably do without any one specific band/artist as long as I had enough variety to fill the gap. For me, it's all about variety, it's about having a wide enough range in my collection that I can always find just the right music to fit my mood for the day.

Need to insult someone? Having a hard time finding the right words? [May. 23rd, 2008|07:57 am]

Try looking to William Shakespeare for help!

Someone on another site pointed this out and I though it was pretty funny.

journaling [May. 7th, 2008|12:18 pm]

Ive made a decision, I'm going to try to start journaling more. I think it's good to remind myself of some of the things Ive worked through, and how much Ive dealt with. I doubt I'll write three and four entries a day like some of the people on my f-list ( you know who you are... :-) ), I may not write every day, and I may not share some of the postings with y'all (yes, I've adopted the southern colloquialism for this entry, sorry to all my Yankee friends who may read this). My goal is to write at least two entries a week, even if it's just really short.

I know my SN is baseball related, but there likely isn't going to be a lot of baseball related content here. Mainly because I only have one person on my f-list right now that likes baseball, and as she's proven in the last few days, she knows how to contact me when she wants to give me guff about my team (you know who you are, too) :-). But also, that's not the point of my writing here, the point is to catalog my growth, both emotionally and spiritually.

Harold and Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay [May. 4th, 2008|10:59 pm]
tigersfan
If anyone who sees this considers themselves a fan of the first Harold and Kumar movie, then I highly recommend the sequel. This is, with out a doubt, one of the least disappointing sequels ever. In fact, it may well have actually been funnier than the first one.

Not Just Tax Day [Apr. 15th, 2007|01:01 pm]
tigersfan
April 15 is typically known in the US as Tax Day, the day most people need to file their federal tax returns. But lesser known to many Americans is that it is also the anniversary of the day that Jackie Robinson broke the color barrier in Major League Baseball. Sixty years ago today, a black man first played professional baseball among white men. He did this in a time where blacks and whites didnt use the same bathrooms, or go to the same school. He did this knowing that he would be threatened, mocked, ridiculed and abused on a daily basis. He did this without using words to fight back, his only recourse was to play well and show the world that he belonged there.

Jackie Robinson was someone we could all look up to, white, black, yellow, purple or polka-dot. He was superhuman, and showed us all just how little difference there really is between the races.

While we here in this country have come a long way as a society in terms of race relations, in light of recent happenings such as the firing of Don Imus, it's apparent that we still have a long way to go. I hope to see a day where in this country, things like race, gender, and sexual orientation will have no effect on how we as a country, and we as individuals judge eachother.

Thank you Mr. Robinson your efforts and attitude inspire me.
