Endless Loop: No More Tears

ozzyHave you ever had one of those songs that gets stuck in your head for days…weeks…years? Sure you have. These are the songs that always make the cut. The songs on repeat. We all have them. I have a ton. Welcome back to Endless Loop.

“No More Tears” by Ozzy Osbourne

The Joup Friday Album: The Dresden Dolls – Yes, Virginia

It’s weird that some things can feel so relevant in a moment when in truth, they have nothing to do with the situation at hand. I can’t get this line out of my head in light of many recent events – all of which have an indelible effect on our world.

A combination of personal life and mainstream news has left me broken, bitter, and cynical. This ship is sinking, and there’s not much we can do about it. I chose The Dresden Dolls’ second album, Yes, Virginia for this week’s album because it gives me something to yell without sounding like a crazy person.

Strangely enough, my favorite Danzig song is a love song of sorts.

The Joup Friday Album: David Bowie – Lodger

Bowie-lodgerI’ve always vouched for Lodger as my favorite Bowie album, but have never been given the time to explain why I feel this way. When I saw that I was tagged to write this week’s Friday album I wanted to write a piece about an album I could talk endlessly about. This was one of the first that came to mind: a soapbox for me to lavish Lodger in praise was ready for me to sit on.

Endless Loop: Moonlight Sonata – Piano Sonata No. 14 (Movement 1)

“Moonlight Sonata – Piano Sonata No. 14 (Movement 1)” by Beethoven

I know it’s hoity-toity and as pretentious as all hell, and could possible be viewed as a written foray into pseudo-intellectualism on my part, but I’m totally riffing on classical music today.

Thank God for VOD! – The Invitation

I don’t get to go to the movies as often as I’d like to, but that doesn’t mean I can’t watch awesome flicks at home. Thank God for VOD!

In my life, I have been lucky enough to be able to maintain a whole slew of close relationships and deep friendships with a number of people, some going back 25 years or more. Our tight-knit little group has bonded together more and more through every era of our lives, every triumph, every tragedy, and then some, keeping in contact despite the physical distance between us. When we all do get together, it’s as if no time has passed at all. We all still love each other. I love that. I don’t know a whole lot of people that have that, and it’s a very precious thing to me.
