Pay Your Dues

VERSE
There are streetlights roaming
Swearing in their innocence
to put into words
this night’s importance

Pre-Chorus
Heavy eyes are not worthy
to keep us from singing!
A song about silence!

Chorus
There’s a finding
Only for Me
There’s a Strategy
For us to dance free
and I know the stars,
hold the currency, this currency!

Verse 2
Fall flowers keep on changing
creeping to orange and blue
bring the change we need
this guitar stands for you

Pre-Chorus
Heavy eyes are not worthy
to keep us from freezing
into this silence!
THIS SI-LENCE!

Chorus
There’s a finding
Only for Me
There’s a Strategy
For us to dance free
and I know the stars,
hold the currency, this currency!
There’s a finding
Only for Me
There’s a Strategy
For us to dance free
and I know the stars,
hold the currency, this currency!

Breakdown
These streets, Pave The Way!

Chorus
There’s a finding
Only for Me
There’s a Strategy
For us to dance free
and I know the stars,
hold the currency, this currency!

Let’s Get Another Work Week Underway

So I pretty much took the weekend off from posting a blog. I have been updating twitter quite frequently though. I am pretty much addicted to that service and don’t see an end in near site. It’s all good though. Today was a fun day, Myself, Kimberlie, Darin, Lindsay, Casey, Jason and little man Chandler all went to our first St. Louis Cardinals game of the season. Now factor out that they pretty much got destroyed by the Cubbies, their largest rivals for those playing at home, the weather was amazing. It was hot but we were actually under one of the upper decks so we were in shade. Now I’m one who would prefer sitting out in the weather then like suites, that’s part of the whole experience is being out with the fans, not in some air conditioned hotel room. That’s like going camping in a decked out RV, I mean, sure you’re staying in a foreign place, but I can’t really consider that camping when you have flat screen tv’s electricity and full out beds, no offense to those who have these, I’m just saying, put up a tent, way more fun.

So anyway, I also bought a few zombie horror movies, 28 Days Later, 28 Weeks Later and Diary of the Dead. 28 Days Later is the only real winner here, but I got them all for a combined total of $20 I guess that’s cool. I also went to Darin’s and saw the movie Forgetting Sarah Marshall. This movie is from the same guys as Superbad and 40 Year-Old Virgin, so it turned out to be a very funny film. A few too many wiener shots thought I must say. We also got in the hot tub after watching it, so it was a pretty solid night.

Not too much else going on with me. I’ve been keeping up with the NHL Playoffs, a lot of teams are going to game 7’s. That makes for some intense hockey, keep your eye on the Chicago/Calgary series, it’s getting pretty heavy.

Anyway, I’m going to post a link to my Twitter, follow it if you have one and I’ll do the same, I hope everyone had a great weekend. If you were in the St. Louis area, I hope you got out and enjoyed the gorgeous weather. Summer is almost here! Have a great week all!

Lost Sound In A Speaker, That’ll Get Annoying Fast

I’m bumming right now because the other day I dropped one of my speakers I have hooked up to my laptop. It no longer feels the need to work. Anybody who knows me know that I spend so much of my time listening to music, it annoys me having music out of only one speaker. I guess I can add that product to my wish list. I guess I can’t complain too much since I got them for free anyway, still, bummer!

I’m sitting here, just got out of the shower, I’m waiting to go to Lindsay’s to watch the Blues game. It’s a must win tonight, if they lose, their season is over, something I don’t want to think about. At least they’re at home so that helps their chances greatly, I don’t want them to get swept! I’m not sure when Darin is picking me up, probably about 6:30, we’ll also be dog sitting her dog Max. She has to work till 8:30 so hopefully we keep him alive.

I’ve been twittering a lot lately. I know everybody else in the world is as well, but I haven’t just been posting. I’ve started following some people. Granted, many of them are musicians or actors, John Mayer, Dr. Drew and Mark Hoppus just to name a few. It’s cool to see just regular updates from people that doesn’t involve self promotion. Like you see real posts, not stuff like, hey go buy my album January 12th or something dumb like that. So it’s kind of my new addiction. I like that you can post to it via text, that’s nice as well. I need to find cooler things to post though, I mean, I can’t really top Mark Hoppus talking about a grown man chasing down an ice cream truck.

I also discovered the new tool that is “tinyurl.com.” This website let’s you take a web address that may be super long, and condenses it down dramatically. This has also turned into a great tool for Twitter users because now you can post links to your Twitter within a little message to go with it. It’s very easy too, good times for that.

I started a new audiobook today at work. It’s called “World War Z.” It’s basically about zombies that took over, and how humans had to take back the earth. It’s told on accounts of people who were involved though. It’s set at such a serious level though that sometimes I have to remember it’s fake. It’s really cool, plus Mark Hamill from Star Wars is a voice in it. This is by the same author as “The Zombie Survival Guide”, which is another great book I listened to.

I just thought I’d update a little bit, I’m really trying to get this blog a solid content foundation. I eventually want to start a personal website so I can post blogs, videos and whatever, but that’s another date and time. For now, I’ll just stick to good ol WordPress.

Toodles.

Messing With WordPress, Learning A Little

So here I am spending some time on WordPress. I have had a couple of accounts set up, but never really messed with them. I am learning a little bit about the site, but I still have much to become familiar with, that’s for sure.

So anywho as I develop this thing I am hoping to get a better theme and a nicer appearance to the overall deal. It’s kind of slopping and just boring right now. I have no idea what this blog will cover, I kind of want it to be a personal blog, just with whatever I find interesting or whatever I can post on here.

It may cover stuff about my life, cool links, articles I have written and so on. So anyway, this is just a cool little post for now, I hope I can really some day, make a cameo appearance to the online world. That’d be cool.

Bring On The Zombie Invasion!

So I was over at my Brother’s new apartment last night, and he showed me this book he was reading. It is called “The Zombie Survival Guide.” It’s basically a full-on explanation and guide for what to do “when” the zombies rise. It’s a very humorous book because there is not a single moment where this book is not serious. I mean, obviously, it’s a funny book, but the author, does a good job of sticking to a realistic chance of this happening, the whole time. I downloaded the book on tape cause I don’t have a whole lot of patience to sit down and read it. It’s good though so far I recommend picking it up.

I’m going to go to Old Navy today, maybe pick me out a few new tshirts, I have found I have really nothing but black colored tshirts, that gets old. So I may get some new colors, I have no white shirts so maybe that’s a color I’m aiming towards.

Tonight is game 2 of the Blues’ playoff series against Vancouver. They trail one game to none right now, but they’ve been really good about bouncing back after a loss. T.J. Oshie, Patrick Berglund and David Perron, also known as the “kid line” is quite amazing, great future for the Blues, that’s for sure!

I bought some new roller blades the other day, and I’ve had to pace myself with using them because they’ve been killing my ankles. Or maybe it’s the fact that I haven’t roller bladed in a long time, so my ankles aren’t used to it. Add to that, I was wearing no show socks, not a good idea as I now have scabs on both sides of my ankles. I can’t wait though until my ankles are healed and I can just skate for exercise and to shoot the hockey puck.

It is a nice day in St. Louis today, I am sporting a sleeveless shirt, shorts and sandals, can’t get much better than that, I hope we are getting passed the cold weather. I’m extremely tired of it, and I hate wearing a jacket or hoodie many times.

Well that’s all for now, I’m off so I hope everybody enjoys this great day, and if it’s cold where you are, you have my utmost pity.

Toodles.
