If I’ve ever seen an AWFUL AWFUL GOD-I-DON’T-BELIEVE-PEOPLE-SIGNED-ON-TO-DO-THIS-SHIT BUT-I-MEAN-REALLY I-ACTUALLY-LEFT-THE-MOVIE-AT-ONE-POINT-ONLY-RETURNING-TO-PICK-UP-MY-SISTERS OH-MY-GOD-PEOPLE-SPENT-MONEY-ON-THIS JUST-KILL-ME-NOW THANK-GOD-I-DIDN’T-PAY-FOR-MY-TICKET WASTE-OF-TIME-SPACE-AND-EFFORT movie, it would have to be Twilight: Eclipse.
Really. It was so heinous I can’t even bear to italicize that shit.
Honestly, it was barely at entertainment value. BARELY.
I made a playlist that reminded me of the Tenth Doctor from Doctor Who (duh). So, prosecute me. Maybe I make playlists about everything. Maybe you should just be quiet and enjoy some great free music. Maybe I thought about poor Rose Tyler and the Doctor a lot while I made this playlist, and maybe that might help you decipher why some of these songs are here. Or maybe you should be adventurous and open your mind and make these connections yourself.
Alright, love and kisses, Mer (Oprah Noodlemantra)
I’ve been down a long road I’ve become a stranger to myself Digging in my heals and hoping time Might be kinder if I waited out
Nothing came from wondering I’ve became so small and insecure Didn’t know the cost of all I lost Until I finally fresh and new (Again with you)
2. Wilco – Hell is Chrome
When the devil came He was not red He was chrome and he said
Come with me You must go So I went Where everything was clean So precise and towering
I was welcomed With open arms I received so much help in every way I felt no fear I felt no fear
The air was crisp Like sunny late winter days A springtime yawning high in the haze And I felt like I belonged Come with me
3. The Motels – Only the Lonely
It’s like I told you Only the lonely can play
So hold on here we go Hold on to nothin’ we know I feel so lonely way up here
We mention the time we were together So long ago, well I don’t remember All I know is that it makes me feel good now
4. Ray Lamontagne – I Still Care for You
Hear me out Day follows day Light turns to clay in my hands
How to explain, So pristine the pain Kindness made the cut so clean
I still care for you
5. Sarah Harmer – Lodestar
And wait for it, There are only two things now. This great black night, And the fire glow. Listen, the darkness rings, The darkness. Listen, the darkness rings. And wait for it, There are only two of us now. This great black night scooped out, And this fire glow. Listen, the darkness rings, The darkness, Listen, the darkness rings. Take off your things, And listen, the darkness rings
6. Andrew Bird – Opposite Day
But if you think there’s something else Well you’re right, there is There’s something else But if you think I’m gonna tell you, think again Why should I even think of telling you what there is Yeah, ‘cause silence is knowledge And knowledge is power I’m under explicit orders to dare not speak its name Listen up, I just work here Oh I dare not speak its name I can’t keep talking about it Oh, I dare not speak its name
7. The Decemberists – The Engine Driver
I’m an engine driver On a long run, on a long run Would I were beside her She’s a long one, such a long one
And if you don’t love me let me go
8. Toto – Africa
The moonlit wings reflect the stars that guide me towards salvation I stopped an old man along the way, Hoping to find some old forgotten words or ancient melodies He turned to me as if to say, Hurry boy, It’s waiting there for you
It’s gonna take a lot to take me away from you There’s nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do
9. Phoenix – 1901
Counting all different ideas drifting away Past and present — they don’t matter. Now the future’s sorted out Watch, you’re moving in elliptical pattern Think it’s not what you say What you say is way too complicated For a minute thought I couldn’t tell how to fall out.
10. Seal – Don’t Cry
Don’t be so hard on yourself. Those tears are for someone else. I hear your voice on the phone. I hear you feel so alone.
When we were young, And truth was paramount. We were older then, And we lived our life without any doubt.
Those memories, They seem so long ago. What’s become of them? When you feel like me I want you to know. Don’t cry, you’re not alone. Don’t cry tonight, my baby. Don’t cry, you’ll always be loved. Don’t cry tonight, my baby.
Today I dreamed, Of friends I had before. And I wonder why. The ones who care don’t call anymore. My feelings hurt.
But you know I overcome the pain. And I’m stronger now, There can’t be a fire unless there’s a flame.
Limousines and sycophants, Don’t leave me now, Cause I’m afraid what you’ve done to me. Is now the wolf. In my bed, In my head.
The challenges, we took were hard enough. They get harder now. Even when we think that we’ve had enough. Don’t feel alone, Cause it’s I you understand.
I’m your sedative, Take a piece of me whenever you can.
11. Supertramp – Take the Long Way Home
When lonely days turn to lonely nights you take a trip to the city lights And take the long way home Take the long way home
You never see what you want to see Forever playing to the gallery You take the long way home Take the long way home
Does it feel that your life’s become a catastrophe? Oohh, it has to be for you to grow, boy. When you look through the years and see what you could have been oh, what might have been, if you would had more time.
So, when the day comes to settle down, Who’s to blame if you’re not around? You took the long way home
12. Sea Wolf – You’re a Wolf
I’m walking on the southern street, get to the river ‘fore it runs too low. Old gypsy woman spoke to me, lips stained red from a bottle of wine. "The one that you are looking for, you’re not gonna find her here."
I’m runnin’ on the northeast street, get to the ocean ‘fore it runs too low. Get to the ocean ‘fore it runs too low. "The one that you are looking for, you’re not gonna find her here."
Old gypsy woman spoke to me, said, “You’re a wolf, boy, get out of this town.” "You’re a wolf, boy, get out of this town." "You’re a wolf."
Today is the fourth consecutive day I’ve gone to hot yoga. I bought the one month unlimited pass on Thursday and so I’m going to go everyday for one month.
Since Thursday I have found that if I sit anywhere too long I’ll end up falling alseep. My shouldes are KILLING me right now, so much so that…
I started doing rigorous yoga as a warm up for one of my classes at university about 6 months ago. Originally I thought I hated it and thought it was only good at making me feel like a loser. I’m come to love it, and especially when I wake up early before work I love to jump out of bed into upward-facing dog and do a whole routine. It gets better as your body gets used to it!
I just looked over and realized that I have 62 followers. Which is kinda crazy, because in no way do I really care about how many followers I have (let’s face it, I’m kinda weird, and if someone likes one thing I post, they’ll probably hate the thing following it).
Last time I checked, I had like 13, and at least 4 of them were people I knew in real life.
So um, if you follow me, thanks. That’s kind of a crazy cool thing!
Cool. Now I’m gunna go watch more Doctor Who, read some Charlaine Harris (Dead in the Family, yeah!), and maybe get some sleep before fishing tomorrow! Yeah!
Today, I went to get a fishing license with my dad. The lady at the counter thought he was my boyfriend. EW, BOB, NO. As an apology present he bought me a box of live sandworms.
When I was driving him back to his house, he called an eye-care place to make an appointment. The lady asked him for his full first name and he replied, “Bob.” His actual first name is definitely Robert.
I went to WalMart (I know, gross) and got the latest Sookie Stackhouse novel. YES!
I have new paints and several canvases. Now what shall I paint?
