Mr. Wister!

Wednesday, November 23, 2005

Quick laptop update: After Day 3, 209 bad clusters, 23% complete.

So yeah, it would be Wednesday, hump day. That, as usual means it's time again to partake in Amy's crazy concoction: The Wednesday Wist.

In case you're not familiar:

How do you participate in Wednesday Wist? 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!!!

And with that, we begin:

Dido - Thank You:

"And I, want to thank you, for giving me the best day of my life. And oh, just to be with you, has given me the best day of my life."

This song always reminds me of standing at the top of a parking ramp watching the day begin with Girl I Though I Would Marry. We had stayed up the whole night talking and were going to go to sleep when we realized the sun would be coming up in a half hour. We went to the highest point we could get to and watched through the haze and is got light out. Couldn't see much of the sun, but we didn't care, it was the moment that mattered. That was the day we stopped being friends and started being a couple.

Cold - End of the World:

"Now I'm all alone, Kept the pain inside, Wanna torch the world, Cause I'm breathin fire."

Push the pain down long enough it's going to force it's way out eventually. Eventually that day will come where it feels like evethings coming down, it's the end of the world. I've been like that before, but now I'd much rather deal with it, and move on. Dwelling doesn't do anyone any good.

P.O.D. - Boom:

"Boom! Here comes the Boom! Ready or not, here comes the boys from the South. Boom! Here comes the Boom! Ready or not, How you like me now?"

"Is that all you got? I'll take your best shot."

This one doesn't really make me think of anything. It's just a fun energetic song. You can't help but get pumped up. Boom baby ;O)

Collective Soul - Forgiveness:

"It used to be all I'd want to learn, was wisdom trust and truth. But now all I really want to learn, is forgiveness for you."

It's the theme song for the broken hearted who still want something with the one who did the breaking. Sometimes you get back together, sometimes you stay friends. But for either to happen you have to be able to forgive or it's never going to work out. And I think I speak for most when I say that learning to forgive is not an easy thing. Some of my Exes like Cross Country Girl and Gitiwm (mentioned above) I have or would forgive. Other like SaraJean, nah, not going to happen.

Hoobastank - Crawling in the Dark:

"I will dedicate, And sacrifice my everything for just a second's worth of how my story's ending. And I wish I could know if the directions that I take and all the choices that I make won't end up all for nothing."

"Show me what it's for, make me understand it. I've been crawling in the dark looking for the answer. Is there something more than what I've been handed? I've been crawling in the dark looking for the answer."

Despite the fact the band's name always makes me giggle, if any song could describe a little of how I've felt lately this is it. It'd be great to know how things are going to turn out, but that's probably not going to happen. Kinda sucks having the freedom to do what you want, but having no idea what you want to do.

Well there ya go, another weekly wisting has come to pass. Yet another odd mix of music it was as well. I just found out my computer has iTunes. This could be a bad thing. heh.

I just wish someone would tell me what Hoobastank's name is about. I've heard them asked in interviews, and they're always really vague. But WHAT THE FUCK IS THE STORY BEHIND IT? I've got to know.
