Songs of the Week

I have no idea if I'm going to do this post a week from now.  We'll see, I guess.  Life seriously needs some spoiler alerts.  Although, I'm almost always correct with my instincts anyway (and they're usually bad, but meh, you get used to it).  Either someone/thing is gonna have to prove me wrong for once (doubtful) or I'll just get used to knowing what's gonna happen well in advance.  Until then, I'll pop on my iPod and lose track of time while I write stuff.  See you next week?  Maybe.  For all none of you who read this.

Side note - Dirty Laundry may be my favorite collection of lyrics for a song, ever.

Songs Tally

5th tally for You, Me and Everyone We Know, 3rd tally for Dirty Laundry

Dirty Laundry - You, Me and Everyone We Know
All alone again.  I speak as if I'd last one minute with eyes not fixed upon this screen.  Stalking the girls I could never fuck.  I mean, they're sluts but it seems I lack that luck.  And I'm not the man to wash my hands all alone or acting like we've hit it off, 'cause either way I'm just jerking someone off.  At 2 AM, dicks out and pissing, 'til you leave town wishing.  I won't be satisfied.  Things are gonna be different now you see.  And add to all this dirty laundry you left me.  It's getting air and with heavy rotation.  You'd better have a damn good explanation.  You act as though you have lived a lie because your tan's been overcooked.  But, I've been burned and burned and burned and burned.

6th tally for Secondhand Serenade, 2nd tally for Vulnerable

Vulnerable - Secondhand Serenade
Your slowly shaking fingertips show that you're scared like me, so let's pretend we're alone.  And I know you may be scared and I know we're unprepared, but I don't care.  Tell me, tell me what makes you think that you are invincible?  I can see it in your eyes that you're so sure.  Please, don't tell me that I'm the only one that's vulnerable.  Impossible.

5th tally for The Used, 2nd tally for All That I've Got

All That I've Got - The Used
I'll be just fine pretending I'm not. I'm far from lonely and it's all that I've got.

24th tally for Say Anything, 1st tally for Wow, I Can Get Sexual Too

Wow, I Can Get Sexual Too - Say Anything
I called her on the phone and she touched herself.  I laughed myself to sleep.

25th tally for Say Anything, 2nd tally for Colorblind

Colorblind - Say Anything
Here comes a view I've seen a million times.  Here comes a boring song with thoughtless rhymes.  I know you're sick of me, so tell me here, because you could have been the one to make it all disappear.  But, I move too slow and I think too fast and the first rainbow I see will be the last.

26th tally for Say Anything, 2nd tally for Hate Everyone

Hate Everyone - Say Anything
Did you know that there are people in the world annoyed with all the other people in the world?  And of all these angry people in the world, I am the angriest boy.

1st tally for Gavin DeGraw, 1st tally for I Don't Wanna Be

I Don't Wanna Be - Gavin DeGraw
I don't wanna be anything other than what I've been trying to be lately.

Pursuit of happiness, yeah.  I don't get it, I'll be good.

1st tally for Motion City Soundtrack, 1st tally for The Future Freaks Me Out

The Future Freaks Me Out - Motion City Soundtrack
It's so hard to relate to the whole human race. I don't know where to begin, I don't know where to begin. If we can both find a way to do the things that we say, we might not sit in our rooms and drink our daydreams away.  Betty, I'm a dreamer, I'm not a vicious schemer.  Oh, Betty won't you - ah, fuck it.

49th tally for Blink-182, 2nd tally for What Went Wrong

What Went Wrong - Blink-182
I'm sick of always hearing all the sad songs on the radio.  All day it is there to remind an over sensitive guy that he's lost and alone.

50th tally for Blink-182, 4th tally for Wishing Well

Wishing Well - Blink-182
I reached for a shooting star, it burned a hole through my hand.

5th tally for Sum 41, 1st tally for In Too Deep

In Too Deep - Sum 41
The faster we're falling, we're stopping and stalling.  We're running in circles again.  Just as things were looking up you said it wasn't good enough, but still we're trying one more time.  Maybe we're just trying too hard when really it's closer than it is too far.  'Cause I'm in too deep and I'm trying to keep up above in my head instead of going under.

Songs of the Week

This week really became centered around music on Tuesday.  There's a lot going on in my life right, more so than I'm used to.  A lot of moving parts and new things.  I'm nervous as fuck, but kind of enjoying every moment of it.  Music was there to put everything into perspective and slow things down.  Side note - it's almost impossible for me to choose just one part of the lyrics in the song Therapy.  I kind of wanted to post the entire thing.  My mind has been going a million miles a minute for over a week now.  Also, this is easily my most diverse group of musicians I've ever had in one week.  Kind of awesome, if you ask me.

35th tally for All Time Low, 2nd tally for The Irony of Choking on a Lifesaver

That's just my luck these days.  Why can't you just be happy for me?

36th tally for All Time Low, 3rd tally for Therapy

Therapy - All Time Low
Give me therapy, I'm a walking travesty, but I'm smiling at everything. Therapy, you were never a friend to me. You can take back your misery. Arrogant boy, love yourself so no one has to. They're better off without you.  Arrogant boy, cause a scene like you're supposed to.  They'll fall asleep without you.  You're lucky if your memory remains.

1st tally for The Doors, 1st tally for Break on Through (To the Other Side)

Break on Through (To the Other Side) - The Doors
You know the day destroys the night, night divides the day.  Tried to run, tried to hide.  Break on through to the other side.

11th tally for Green Day, 1st tally for Let Yourself Go

Let Yourself Go - Green Day
Cut the crap 'cause you're screaming in my ear and you're taking up all of the space. You're really testing my patience again and I'd rather get punched in the face.  You're getting on my every last nerve, everything you've said I've already heard.  I'm sick to death of your every least breath and I don't give a fuck anyway.

3rd tally for Box Car Racer, 2nd tally for Letters to God

Letters to God - Box Car Racer
I won't lie, I won't sin.  Maybe I don't wanna go.  Can't you wait?  Maybe I don't wanna go.

38th tally for A Day to Remember, 3rd tally for You Had Me at Hello

You Had Me at Hello - A Day to Remember
What have I gotten into this time around?  I know that I had sworn I'd never trust anyone again, but I didn't have to.  You had me at hello.

14th tally for Brand New, 2nd tally for Failure by Design

1st tally for Semisonic, 1st tall for Closing Time

Closing Time - Semisonic
Closing time.  You don't have to go home, but you can't stay here.  I know who I want to take me home.

Everywhere I Go - Hollywood Undead
My signing bonus was quickly spent, so I'll beat my meat like I'm a fuckin' butcher and I'll punk the pussy like I'm Ashton Kutcher.

4th tally for You, Me and Everyone We Know, 2nd tally for Carolina Heat

Carolina Heat - You, Me and Everyone We Know
We're at the tip-top, yeah, we're not getting any better than this.  I'm out of lines, girl, we're not getting any smoother than this, but could you blame if I, if I, if I took you all for prisoner with just one line, one lie because I'll be the preacher to all his converts.  Donate now to my rightful cause.  But what good is a quick healing to go if the lesson is never learned, it's just like stitches for show?

1st tally for Eminem, 1st tally for Superman

Superman - Eminem
You don't want that, neither do I.  I don't want to flip when I see you with guys.  Too much pride, between you and I, not a jealous man, but females lie.  But, I guess that's just what sluts do, how could it ever be just us two?  I'd never love you enough to trust you, we just met and I just fucked you.

1st tally for Alex Clare, 1st tally for Too Close

Too Close - Alex Clare
I can't lie no more, I can't hide no more.  Got to be true to myself.  And it feels like I am just too close to love you.  So, I'll be on my way.

Many folks, they never heard of me so I'm gonna introduce myself using some hyperbole

Firework - Katy Perry
Katy Perry has nice boobs.

Songs of the Week

I haven't got a clue why there's so much rap this week, but I guess that's how it works out sometimes.  Very interesting week, tons of reflecting upon stuff like I'm prone to do.  Fairweather Fan has quickly become a go to song for my bonding time with my iPod.  And back-to-back weeks featuring Green Day, which I'm happy to see from an old favorite of mine.  Jay-Z, Brand New, All Time Low, Four Year Strong, Green Day, Kanye West, Troop 41, Against Me!, Mayday Parade, and Kid Cudi all in one week.  Yep, I'm totez normal.

24th tally for All Time Low, 1st tally for The Irony of Choking on a Lifesaver

The Irony of Choking on a Lifesaver - All Time Low
Stop fucking around with my emotions.  I like you better when you're numb.  I'm sick and tired of false devotion.  Devote yourself to moving on or suck it up and let it go.  But, you're always out to get me.  You're the snake hidden in my daffodils when I'm picking flowers.  That's just my luck these days.  Why can't you just be happy for me?  You're the break lines failing as my car swerves off the freeway, it kind of feels like sabotage.

12th tally for Brand New, 1st tally for Mixtape

 Mixtape - Brand New
When I say let's keep in touch, I really mean I wish that you'd grow up.  This is the first song for your mixtape, it's short just like your temper, but somewhat golden like the afternoons we used to spend before you got too cool.

13th tally for Brand New, 1st tally for Failure by Design

Failure by Design - Brand New
I walk myself picking at the chip on my shoulder.  I'm another day late and one year older.  It's failure by design.

5th tally for Four Year Strong, 3rd tally for Fairweather Fan

Fairweather Fan - Four Year Strong
I know it's only a matter of time before my luck runs out, 'cause I know it's only a matter of luck before my time runs out.

1st tally for Kid Cudi, 1st tally for Pursuit of Happiness

Pursuit of Happiness - Kid Cudi
I'm on the pursuit of happiness and I know everything that shine ain't always gonna be gold.  I'll be fine, once I get it, I'll be good.

3rd tally for Jay-Z and Kanye West, 1st tally for H•A•M

H•A•M - Jay-Z and Kanye West
Fuck y'all mad at me for?  You don't even know what I've been through.  I play chicken with a Mac truck.  Y'all motherfuckers woulda been moved.  I swam waters with great whites, y'all motherfuckers woulda been chewed.  I hustle with vultures late nights, y'all motherfuckers woulda been food.

10th tally for Green Day, 1st tally for Kill the DJ

Kill the DJ - Green Day
Someone kill the DJ, shoot the fucking DJ.  Hold him underwater until the motherfucker drowns.

Everybody do the John Wall, John Wall, John Wall, John Wall, John Wall, John Wall, John Wall, John Wall, John Wall, John Wall, John Wall, John Wall, John Wall, John Wall, John Wall, John Wall, John Wall, John Wall, John Wall, John Wall, John Wall, John Wall, John Wall, John Wall, John Wall, John Wall, John Wall, John Wall, John Wall, John Wall, John Wall, John Wall.

Random Review (The Cabin in the Woods)

Whenever I add a new DVD/Blu-Ray to my entertainment collection, I have to restructure my Random Review list to accommodate the newcomer.  What I usually do is take the list of my inventory and randomize it all over again.  Where the new addition lands in the list is where I insert it in the original rundown.  As luck would have it, one of my new additions, The Cabin in the Woods was number three on the new list and so, by default it became my next movie to review.  Very excited about that because I loved this movie so much.  Unlike most of the movies I review on this blog, this is actually a fairly recent release.  If you haven't seen it yet, then I must warn you that my review WILL HAVE SPOILERS.  If you have any interest in seeing this, I implore you to go watch it first and then come back here!

If this is your first Random Review and you're wondering what the fuck I'm doing, I just randomized my DVD collection and decided for shits and giggles, I would watch each one and review it.

You're the pride and joy of Illinois, Chicago Bears.  Bear down.

2nd tally for Coldplay, 1st tally for Viva la Vida

Viva la Vida - Coldplay
I used to rule the world.  Seas would rise when I gave the word.  Now, in the morning I sleep alone.  Sweep the streets I used to own.

11th tally for Brand New, 5th tally for Last Chance to Lose Your Keys

Last Chance to Lose Your Keys - Brand New

9th tally for Green Day, 1st tally for Fell For You

Fell For You - Green Day
You're out of sight, but not out of mind.  I had a dream that I kissed your lips and it felt so true.  Then I woke up as a nervous wreck and I fell for you.  I'll spend the night living in denial.
