• Too much California music can affect your health!

    27 Aug 2008, 18:59 by c-rebehn

    For all day now, I've been listening to songs about/from California, mostly the ones eekgeekface once sent me, plus the ones everyone knows and the ones I always had just because.
    So well, staring at the screen all day, including Google Earth distances to LAX for the AI flightplan for the Flight Simulator I'm working on right now, and listening to that music, you get somehow carried away. And when I look out now and see the grey, dark, rainy sky, I know I'm at home. And it makes me sad. I would be sad without the music anyway, but it makes me feel like the moment of getting ripped out of this enviroment has just been. You could say it keeps me close to the memories. You could also say it keeps the wounds open, not letting them scar. Open wounds hurt, and they could get infected and get worse, as we all know.
    It's only been ten days since I left L.A. but it feels like an eternity. On one side, I don't want to let go of it, to accept that it's over and will drift further and further away…
  • Trip around the world - these songs will I take with me

    10 Jul 2008, 14:58 by c-rebehn

    This summer, I will go to Los Angeles to see my baby Laine, to Singapore to meet Tina and to Bangkok just for the heck of it. Of course, going so far for so long needs a lot of consideration about which songs to feed your MP3 Player with. Here's what I collected for now:

    The Ataris - Takeoffs and Landings
    If you could go anywhere right now,
    Where would you go?
    And would you miss me when you get there?
    There's no place that I would rather be

    Please don't let me go falling from the sky
    This "fasten seatbelt" sign just needs to go out
    If only you could be, right here by my side
    Home wouldn't seem so far from here

    Boys Like Girls - Thunder
    Today, is a winding road
    It's taking me to places that I didn't want to go
    Ooo-whoa oh (Whoa oh, whoa oh, whoa oh...)

    Your voice...was the soundtrack of my summer
    Do you know you're unlike any other?
    You'll always be my thunder and I said
    Your eyes...are the brightest of all the colors
    I don't wanna ever love another
    You'll always be my thunder

  • Top 25 of 2005, Pt. 1

    9 Jan 2006, 08:40 by mrtim1420

    So these are my Top 25 songs of 2005. Though they aren't all songs actually released in 2005. Some were, but not many. It's more like, the top 25 songs that meant something to me during 2005.

    25. Blue Orchid This song kicked my butt the first time I heard it, and it still does.

    24. Feel the Pain Heard it for the first time on the Spike Jonze Director's Label DVD, and I don't know what it is, or why I like the repetition so much. But I do.

    23. Things to Do in Denver When You're Dead Going to Denver was real interesting for me. Alone for a couple days, my whole future to think about, I really did just roll around Denver all day.

    22. Birds In Your Garden I've liked Pulp for awhile, but I'd kind of set them to the side. Then I suggested them to a friend who'd never heard them, and it kind of sparked a Pulp revival for me, where I rediscovered this song.

    21. Thrasher A good song to play when you're alone, and I was for a good part of the summer, it seemed. …
