You Don’t Need No Memory

Just A Place To Call Your Own

As We Drift Into The Zone…”

We’ll Be Playing

And Having Fun

And It Makes Me Feel So Fine

I Can’t Control My Brain…”

Together

We’ll Spend Some Time

Forever

We’ll Never Feel Bad Anymore…”

Before Hitting The Sack, Last Night…

(teehehe I Said Sack)

…I Was Listening To Some Quality Tunes That (almost) Always Put Me In A More Cheerful Mood.

I Figured If I Go To Sleep In A Good Mood, Maybe I’ll Get Some Good Rest.

Well…

…It Worked-Out By Going Pretty Much Up The Middle.

The Quality Tunes DID Put Me In A Better Mood.

The Rest I Got WAS Good.

However…

…I Only Got 4-Hours-Worth Of It.

Good Plan.

Good Execution.

Just Not Enough Good Execution Of Said Plan.

Oh Well, Right?!

RIGHT!!

Anyway…

…This Song…

ISLAND IN THE SUN

by WEEZER

…Was The Lone Little Number I Ended-Up Playing More Than Once During My “Good Mood” Attempt.

ISLAND IN THE SUN

…Is Simply A Wonderful Song…

…And One Of The Total BEST SONGS Of The 2000s.

It Has Yet To Fail In It’s Duties To Make Me Smile…

…And That’s A Very Good Thing, Fo SHO, My Peeps!

It’s Calming.

It’s Soothing.

It’s A Smile-Inducer.

It’s A Mood-Enhancer.

To Me…

…That Equals A Rather Splendid Life-Experience.

Music Is LOADED With Life-Experiences Of All Natures.

Some Make Us Happy…

…Or Sad.

Some Make Us Angry…

…While Others Fill Us With A Personal Ecstasy-Type Feeling.

Music Is Wondrous Like That.

Wouldn’t You Tend To Agree?!

GREAT!!

I Kinda Figured You Would.

😉

When I Awoke This Morning After My 4’ish-Hours Of Slumber…

…The First Thing I Wanted To Do Was Listen To This Song.

So I Did.

Now…

…I’ve Listened To It Damn Near a Dozen Times Between Last Night And This Morning.

It’s Stuck In My Head, Yet I Can’t Get Enough Of It.

Now THAT Is The Mark Of A Great Song.

Period.

Hear It A Dozen Times, Yet You’re Ready For Some More.

NICE!

I’ve Been A WEEZER Fan For A Long Time…

…And This Remains MY FAVORITE Tune Of Theirs.

Period Period.

Like I Said, It’s A Real Head-Changer.

For That Fact…

…It’s Stuck In My Head This Morning…

…And That Is NOT A Bad Thing!

Agreed???

AGREED!!!

😀

Did Up A Couple Quick Miles, Today. Nearly Passed-Out. But The Tunage SAVED-MY-ASS Once Again!!!

This Morning Began Like Any Other.

I Was Awake Too Damned Early…

…And Had Little To Occupy Myself With For A Bit.

Finally…

…I Says To Myself…

“Dude, Just Put Your GD Shoes On And HIT IT!”

Sometimes…

…I’m Simply Frothing-Over With Excellent Personal Advice.

At Least…

…Excellent Personal Advice For ME.

So I Popped On The Ole NEW BALANCES…

(Still The Best Walking Shoes I've Ever Owned)

…And I Hit The Dusty Trail.

The Temperature Was Acceptable.

The Humidity Level Was NOT Acceptable.

But…

…There Was A Steady Breeze.

To ME…

…Those All Added-Up To…

“Get Your Butt Out There And Kick This Pig!”

And So I Did.

THANK JEEBUS HARRY For QUALITY TUNAGE!!!

In No Real Order…

…Here Are 10-Quality-Jams From This Morning’s Walk-About-Adventure.

If The Oddly-Wild Variations In My Music Styling And Taste Hasn’t Become Blindingly Obvious To Y’all Yet…

…Well…

…Then You Just Don’t Know My Personality.

I Am…

(likely)

…One Of The MOST Random Human Beings You’re Likely To Encounter.

At Least, That’s What My Friends Say.

I Don’t Have Many Of Them…

…Though I’m Starting To Feel That’s A Good Thing.

I’d Rather Have 3 Or 4 People In My World Who DO Get Me…

…As Opposed To 300 Or 400 Who Haven’t The Foggiest.

I Consider That Personal Growth.

Perhaps By Showcasing My Opinions/Wants/Needs/Lusts/Loves I’ll Be Able To Ferret-Out The Remaining Peeps Who Simply Don’t Belong.

I’m A Nut.

I’m A Nut That’s VERY Hard To Crack.

And On The Inside Of The Exterior-Shell…

…You’ll (likely) Find Yet ANOTHER Nut.

😉

But I Wouldn’t Have It Any Other Way, My Peeps.

Gotta Keep The World Guessing, Right?!?

RIGHT!!!

😀
