Funk you, with a Twist.

Thursday, November 10, 2005

Ok, so I still haven't managed to make it out of this funk. I'm not even really sure why I'm here. I'm not really down so much as I'm stuck in the middle and definitely haven't crossed that line back into happyland. Maybe it's a busy-ness hangover. After having someone much going and having so much fun, now having nothing going on is kinda that post high come-down. Who knows. I'm sure it'll pass, just gotta get out and have some fun again.

Anyway, in my general mopiness, I seem to have forgotten it was Wednesday yesterday and therefore missed out on doing the Wednesday Wist. So since it's now Thursday, and I still want to do it, I'm just going to call it the Thursday Twist. Yup.

Anyway, on to the twistyness. Tally Ho.

So how do you participate in Wednesday Wist (Or twist)? You take whatever music player you use, put it on shuffle, grab the first 5 songs and write what that song makes you remember. If it's a new song...and you can't relate it to a memory....do you like it? Leave a comment if you do it on your site and if you don't have a site, comment your wist here! Oh...and feel free to comment about my songs as well!!!

1. Babyface & Stevie Wonder - How Come, How Long?

"There was a girl I used to know, she was oh so beautiful. She's not here anymore."

"How come? How Long? It's not right, it's so wrong. Do we let it just go on, turn our backs and carry on? Wake up, before it's to late. Right now, we can't wait. She won't have a second try, open up your hearts and well as you eyes."

Victims of abuse are everywhere. So many people turn a cheek and think it's not their problem, or not their place to say anything. If you know a friend or loved on is in an abusive relationship turning away is just going to get them more hurt. I know a couple friends in abusive relationships, luckily one of them ended it, but is still hanging out with the guy here and there. Friends like this need support.

2. Smash Mouth - All Star:

"Hey now, You're an all star! Get your game on, go play! Hey now you're a Rock Star, get the show on, get paid."

"Some body once asked, could I 'spare some change for gas? I need to get myself away from this place.' I said "Yep, what a concept. I could use a little fuel myself and we could al use a little change."

This is just one of those happy fun songs. I mean who doesn't wanna be called a Rock Star? I think this is what I need now, get my game on and go play. Get out and go something fun! As it says, we can all use a little change eh?

3. House of Pain & Jason Nevins - Jump Around 2000:

I'm thinking this one doesn't really need a quote. The only important lyrics are in the song's name. This one's a faster paced remix though. If this isn't an aerobics class theme song, I don't know what could be. Now get out your seat and jump around dammit!

4. Godsmack - Voodoo:

"I'm not the one who's so far away, when I feel the snakebite enter my veins. Never did I want to be here again, and I don't remember why I came."

No real memories or thoughts triggered, just kinda of a cool song. I love the tribal feel with all of the drums and how it's almost hypnotic. I guess the lyrics to make me think about it being someone the day after a night of heavy drinking. heh.

5. Richard Marx - Right Here Waiting:

"Wherever you go, whatever you do, I will be right here waiting for you. Whatever it takes, or how my heart breaks, I will be right here waiting for you."

"I wonder how we can survive, this romance. But in the end if I'm with you, I'll take the chance."

This is like the theme song for anyone separated from the one they love. It used to remind me of The Girl I Thought I Would Marry and I guess it still does, but not in the same way. Now I guess it would make me think of how I would feel if I met that "one" person. There's definitely a contender for that spot in my life right now, but only time will tell if things work out that way. Until then I'll be here!

So there ya go, your wisty wished have been fulfilled. Nothing super great this week, I really need to update my music!

Anyway, check in tomorrow for the Idiot Boss Review!

Slackman, cheer up dude!! Yer still breathing. Choose only one of the following...
A) Lying dead on a slab but with a happy face
B) Breathing but still in a funk.

Oh, by the way, I was working on cleaning out the basement since 1992 when we had a small house fire. I'll get it cleaned out soon!! right!!

You might be down, but beer still tastes good!!

Ok, so I TRIED to tell you - leave tomorrow after work and you should make it out to IL in time for drinks Saturday night!!! But you failed to acknowledge my invitation. :(

I hope your funk dissipates soon - and I'll do a shot in your honor when I am out on Saturday.

Wendi - I did no such thing! Wait, where'd it go?? Ok, mest figure out what went wrong...

At Thu Nov 10, 01:41:00 PM, Blogger Chief Slacker said...

Wendi - Most definitely will not! And you be careful with that tongue, might have to put it to use!

At Thu Nov 10, 02:22:00 PM, Blogger Pieces of Me said...

Hey now...quit with this funk! I know partly what it is although you wont say it...but I think so...LOL is anyone following?? me either...I have a splitting headache and advil or other things aren't working!! UGH! At least you have some better songs this week...I wish you would definitely update your music though I feel like I am in middle school AGAIN!!! LMAO yeah I totally just aged you ;-)

At Thu Nov 10, 02:35:00 PM, Blogger Marie said...

I hope these *hugs* help get you out of the funk. :-P

I'm liking the song list here, although the Richard Marx one I recall from a LONG time ago. It brings back sad memories from when my college sweetheart and I broke up many moons ago...but he was a possessive jerk anyways so it was for the best! heh

Do you need more hugs? ;)

At Thu Nov 10, 02:42:00 PM, Blogger Chief Slacker said...

Pieces - yeah i definitely need to work on the music! And sorry about the headache. As I said, i'm not so much down, i've gotten over taht stuff, now I jsut need soemthing to get me back to happy.

At Thu Nov 10, 03:13:00 PM, Blogger Chief Slacker said...

Marie - Who can ever get enough hugs. I think you should fly up here and not stop ;O) heeh

At Thu Nov 10, 03:19:00 PM, Blogger Esther said...

Sorry you're down. I've been down myself lately, maybe we can mope together?

I hadn't done The Wist List before, so here's mine:

Groove is in the Heart (Deee-Lite):
You can’t help but wiggle to this sucker. It reminds me of a strange date I went on with a guy I met – who called me ‘Hippy Chick’. The date was good, I wore a flowered dress. Then he disappeared after he contracted hepatitis. Che Serra.

All Your Way (Morphine):
I was supposed to see Morphine, but the lead singer died of a heart attack. The song makes me sway and think of Indian Summer.

Short Song for Strings (Johnathan Rice):
Languid and romantic, just as life should be.
“Well I’d walk through walls, to be with you…”

In Spite of all the Damage (Be Good Tanyas):
Quite possibly the most heartbreaking song written. It’s about that desire to call an old love after you’ve been forced to leave. Like moving out of your house when they’ve left town on business, perhaps.

Porchlight (Neko Case):
Neko Case. Nuff said.

Esther - How about we find soemthing to cheer us up together instead? Moping doesn't get us anywhere!

GDLG - Rock on beautiful! Way to join the crowd. I have that song (Groove is in the heart) on a compliation CD a fellow blogger made for me, definitely a good 80's classic! is it jsut me or is it always the good bands that lose soemone? :O( Thanks for the wist!

Rock Star makes me think of Shrek.

Just blame your funk on a man-period :) Why should women get all the ease of blaming their moods?

At Fri Nov 11, 07:13:00 AM, Blogger Esther said...

Sounds like a plan to me.

At Fri Nov 11, 08:34:00 AM, Blogger Chief Slacker said...

Kira - You mean Far Far Away Idol? hehe. The funk is cause be a lack of anything to be that happy about. I'm not down, just not up either.

Esther - Doesn't it though? Now, what to do to get out of it eh?

At Fri Nov 11, 09:07:00 AM, Blogger Esther said...

Hmm, see a good movie? Go out with some friends? I'm not being very creative here...
