Day 25 – A song that makes you laugh


Another one from the friends of the program Hardnox. “Fist Pump,” is hilarious. It’s also currently being used by the play off seeking San Francisco Giants on their “Fist Pump Cam.” Make sure you check out the 10.2.10 Giants Game to see Hardnox perform this at AT&T park.

signs that I’m not from Nor Cal

Ben and I were drinking sake that his brother just brought back from Japan (like nothing in the box is in English) that comes in a juice box at the Muse show. Hipster much?

Also the crowds in Sacramento? Klassy. Yes with a K.
Even the largest city that’s reasonable driving distance to me is moon like.
But from now on whenever I go to an arena show I’m renting a pregnant woman to go with. Adele made us all look responsible and people gave us a lot of space. Ha ha. But the baby enjoyed the show from what Adele said. Baby girl was dancing up a storm.

Day 24 – A song that you want to play at your funeral


Flogging Molly – If I Ever Leave This World Alive

And obviously I want all my friends (all four of them here in Chico, ha ha) to have a huge party. No one is supposed to be sad. Jennifer already agreed to make sure it’s quite a party, and she’s younger than me so she’ll make it happen when she’s 85 and I’m 90. 😉 Bring your drinking boots.

Tonight, my afternoon guy and annoying brother I never knew I had, Jeremy, the lovely Adele and that one guy Ben 😉 and I are all heading down to Sacramento to see Muse at the Arco Arena with some other people from Chico, who I haven’t met yet, but all of Jeremy’s friends are cool so I’m not worried.

Road Trip! Concerts! Tailgating! Del Taco! Yes please!


Day 23 – A song that you want to play at your wedding

This is a dumb question little meme, because I’m never going to get married. And that’s not a woe as me statement, I just don’t see it in the cards/stars for me. Let’s be real, I’ve been asked twice. And almost a year later exactly, I was out the door. I’m just not the marrying type I guess. Too stubborn.

That being said, when I was younger and thought that it may happen and maybe I did have a big moon eyed crush on some guy I thought was just *perfect* (he is mind you, just not for me) I’m sure the idea crossed my mind. Sometime before I was even 21. And in this silly immature happily ever after senario, this was the song:


Back here in reality, when my ex and I were really talking about getting married (and yeah, we had all the fun parts planned out) this was going to be our first dance, because think about where we lived and who our friends were:


But hey, that never happened either.
Only a few days left of this meme, then I might actually have to make blog posts again!

Day 22 – A song that you listen to when you’re sad

This is another odd/hard one, so I’m going to post a couple:


Dashboard Prophets – “Ballad For A Dead Friend”

Oddly enough I heard this song for the first time during an episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I know next to nothing about this band and wasn’t surprised that every video I found on youtube of it had something to do with some television show that had extremely dedicated fans that make fan videos. Don’t ask me why, I just wasn’t. Anyway this song always makes it into my sad bastard playlist. It’s really the perfect song to feel sorry for yourself to.


Incubus – “Love Hurts”

It’s very Junior High of me, but in the recent past I was often sad or at least bummed out because of this one guy I knew. We both really like Incubus. So when I was sitting around moping about this one guy I knew, this would be a song I’d listen to. Quelle immature. And no it’s not who you think it is. Or maybe it is who you think it is. I’ll never tell.


Bush – “Out of This World”

Another song I heard for the first time during an episode of Buffy. Seems odd, given what I do for a living, but Bush isn’t really a band I listen to much, and this wasn’t a radio single. Anyway this is pretty good sad bastard music. I listened to this a lot when I first got up here to Chico, on my iPod at night next to the pool.

Day 21 – A song that you listen to when you’re happy


Hardnox – “Going Out Tonight”

These guys are so silly and friends of the show. I had the pleasure of hanging out with them when they played in SLO last year and they’re rad dudes. Totes happy for them, they’re playing at AT&T park next weekend because the Giants are using “Fist Pump” as a rally song.

I listen to this song every time I’m getting ready to head out. It reminds me of some fun times back home and also puts me in the mood to go out and dance.
