Obviously music is an awesome thing, but I think truly one of the most remarkable things about music is the way a good song or album have an affect on you. Meaning that an album has the ability to be flawless regardless of a mood. I rediscovered last night that beauty, how an album you once related with good feelings can also help cope with the bad feelings. I think a song writers ability to capture emotion regardless of what it is, makes them truly an artist.
It’s hosility, and it’s so FUNNY. We get it, really we do… but it’s your own fault, man.
I sincerely I hate my gut feelings that I have. There are so many times/weird moments in my life where I have these thoughts or feelings and ignore them and they end up fairing true. It’s truly bizarre and annoying.
Like for example, (this goes years back) but I was driving down route 1 and thinking to myself, “going kinda fast Kim…” but I never really put too much thought into speeding because I have a radar detector and usually alerts me of any authorities in the area. Plus I’m usually pretty keen at spotting cops. But in any case, driving along down the road, and all of a sudden flashing lights behind me… my radar detector was going so crazy it silenced itself. So like I knew, but disregarded my thoughts and it ended up in a traffic violation…
Numerous times I’ve been affected by this so called “gut feeling” and it’s resulted in confrontations with friends, family, work… and the law. When will I learn to go with it?
I also may be making a big deal out of nothing, because ya know “hindsight’s always 20/20” but really I think my intuition is super sensitive.
I sorta came up with an idea for a blog, like a celebrity sighting blog but instead of sighting actual celebrities it would be.. “I was on the bus and I thought I saw Adrian Greenier, and he was reading Faulkner, but turns out it was just someone who looked like him”
Also, that sighting really happened to me yesterday. I think it would be funny for celebrities to read. Just imagine all the Zach Braff look a likes walking around out there… why not document it? I mean I think working in NYC at least 3 times a week I think I see someone famous… but it’s either very wrong or I’m not sure
Not like I have time for this, but hey just an idea…
Real nice to see my team showed up to play on Sunday, oh wait I’m not an Eagles fan? The NY Giants deserved to lose their shot at the superbowl yesterday because honestly they played the worst game of their season yesterday, in my opinion. Awful… Eli Manning was miserable! Everytime he threw the ball (for the exception of the one throw to Hixon) he threw away his trip to Disney. Whatever… all I have to say is by some chance the Cardinals had better destroy the Eagles next weekend because another philly team one step closer to another champion ship in the same sports year makes me sick, in short haha.
Devils, aren’t doing too bad, glad to see things aren’t completely falling apart with no one scoring goals and Brodude out on the bench. I am sad that I haven’t been able to go to a game this season, maybe I’ll get tickets for something coming up soon.. who knows!
Shockingly I’m excited for baseball to start, really just a few short weeks away. I think I may finally invest my time in a team. I haven’t really cared about any team in particular, I mean I always sorta rooted for the SF Giants, but it’s hard to be interested in a team that has ZERO fan base (or even rivarly for that matter) in a 100 mile radius of New Jersey. I also want to go to one million baseball games because they’re so much fun!
I don’t care enough to make a huge list of favorite albums, artists, songs of the past year. But I will just make one claim, I thought it over pretty long and hard and the best album (in my opinion) is:
The Black Keys - Attack & Release
I’m still more of a fan of their prior albums, mainly Thickfreakness, but this was a great album for this year (sidenote it was produced by danger mouse, so hello, awesome haha). Who gives a shit about fall out boy and Kayne West was a huge disapointment. I like the Killers album but it doesn’t thrill me like the others, I think they fell shy of their worth this time, but I still like it regardless.
Clearly I’m all about Gaslight Anthem, but they didn’t quite make it to huge mainstream release level this year. Don’t worry mad love for the B.Fallon xo
Imagine being in a room with about 50 people you graduated high school with, and about 15 of them you can trace back to your elementary school days. It’s crazy and it happens, and it did last night.
Aside from the “give me a drink” quick thoughts, a lot of crazy things come rushing back into your head. Like, “god- do these people even remember me?”, “what did they think then and what about what they think now?”. It’s really a weird dynamic, especially when you’re trying to figure out why you stopped talking to some of these people or why you didn’t talk them (more than likely for a stupid reason).
I feel about 10 years older thinking that things that were friendship breakers then are stupid now and currently I wouldn’t dream of such things. I’m glad I’ve found my big girl words and know how to be more of human now.
The things people say and remember about you are mind blowing. I vow from this day on to look spectacular at all times and say only very nice or very funny things.
