I feel sad that the Wiz is going out of business, it was always a cool circuit city type store with high prices but SOME deals to be found and most importantly good location for me (only a mile walk as opposed to the 5 miles to best buy) That didn't stop me from picking over the bones for some cool stuff cheap though. I got a couple of things and will probably return for a few more but the most important was I finally picked up the Sublime album known as...sublime. I had most of my favorite songs from it on a greatest hits album but I just couldn't force myself to live without Caress Me Down any longer at that reasonable a price, not to mention the reprise of one of my top 10 favorite songs of all time, "What I got."
This Album brings back my summer as a C.I.T. camp which in retrospect was probably one of the most loose and relaxed times of my life. No permanent record, no worries about college or a post collegiate career, just the limited present and a loose sense of responsibility which I went far beyond the bounds of in trying to do a good job.
It's intereting how well moods stick to music. The FEELING of any period of your life can be brought back by playing some music from it. That's one of the reasons I think it's important to keep seeking out new stuff. If you just play the same music over and over it's like your taping over an important scrap book of your emotional life. I've always listened to Guns N Roses and now it doesn't really recall anything.
But I'm rambling.
Today was pretty Mellow, I didn't do a heck of a lot. Just some thinking and relaxing.
People tell me I'm funny and should maybe get into comedy all the time (Ah ha! Your JOKES about how UNFUNNY I am are SO hilarious!) I've been thinking of writing up a routine and trying an open mike night somewhere. The problem is that I'm much better thinking quickly on my feet than sitting down and TRYING to be funny. I'm a riffer not a writer. If you bomb riffing you bomb like the allies did Dresden. It's not a pretty sight.
Umm a bunch of new people have added me recently so I figure I should ask a question.
What song/band brings you back to the feeling of a particular period of your life. Do you know why it does this?
