Having a bad day? Dance it out to this…
I must say, I have to appreciate the brutal honesty from family members. I wish we lived in a world where everyone could just give honest constructive criticism without being fearful that the person being criticized is going to slap you in the face or break into tears. Why can’t we learn to take everything with a grain a salt? I’d rather know what could be done to improve myself than have people just thinking the negative about me. That’s why we love our family though. They can tell us straight up, and I appreciate that.
When do we become real? When do we stop playing the game where we play pretend and act like we are everything positive that we envision ourselves to be? Is it really fair to know the truth in our heads yet keep the charade going due to common courtesy of not wanting to bear the ugly truth? I mean, we all WANT to be that perfect person we have planned in our heads, but we know it’s not going to happen every day. Maybe we aren’t lying to the other person, but rather ourselves. Choosing not to believe that’s actually who we are, and that maybe this time things will be different. Maybe this time that monster will have retired and we can be something entirely better. Just maybe.
“Cause the sign says run”
The Airborne Toxic Event was one of the bands that really impressed me at Live at Squamish. A great show for sure and I cannot wait for their next here.
“I was thinking that if you know a way out then I’d like to go with you”
I absolutely love this song. Another great show by Our Lady Peace tonight. My second this year in fact! Their music, both lyrically and musically, just makes me feel so safe and so at peace. My favourite band, hands down. Much love and appreciation.
I love how they’ve done this trailer, and I really wanna see ParaNorman!
Late night listenings; The Airborne Toxic Event - The Graveyard Near The House
It’s interesting how you can listen to a song so much and all of a sudden a certain line will hit you. Is it because we rarely actually listen to the words being sung? Or does a trigger go off in our head when it means something more particular to us at a certain time?
“But it’s better to love whether you win or lose or die.”
A flock of sheep that leisurely
One after one; the sound of
rain and bees
Murmuring; the fall of rivers,
winds and seas,
Smooth fields, white sheets of
water, and pure sky;
I have thought of all by turns,
and yet do lie
—William Wordsworth, one of my favourites.
August 06: Foxfest - Daniel Wesley, Public Enemy, and Sublime with Rome.
What a wicked night. One downfall, if felt like Daniel Wesley played only 5 songs, we wanted more! However it was a good start to the night while the sun went down sitting on the grass hill with some beers. Questioning why Public Enemy was chosen to play we immediately changed our opinions once they did. Flava Flav, clock and all had us going wild. At least I can say my first hip hop concert was by real hip hop artists. Sublime with Rome was wild! Mostly because we spent the whole set in the pit jumping around like maniacs. Dani lost her shoes almost immediately, I lost some jewelry, and we all probably lost a couple pounds from sweating so much! By the end we had been bounced around, knocked down and crowd surfing and we spent the next day comparing war wounds. The perfect end to the show was Dani catching the set list. That was everything a concert should be.
Nightmare - Avenged Sevenfold. Craving last years Uproar Festival. It was perfect, great bands and a great start to good ol’ eerie october. Gotta love fall.
It consumes me.
Day in, day out, hour after hour.
Controlling my every thought,
A voice in my head I can’t ignore.
An ache in the pit of me.
It is… hunger.
hah. I can’t stop eeeeaating!
