Stag Pool Party.

(A Farmer’s Insurance commercial that literally makes me laugh so hard I nearly hyper-ventilate, every time).

NOTE: Between the second and third scenes with the lights coming on, the diving board in the background…omfg…

 

Drowning Pool – Turn So Cold.

“It’s too much, not enough…

what you need, I don’t get…

and all I get is you turning away.

Grey Street.

“There’s a loneliness inside her,

and she’d do anything to fill it in…

And though it’s red blood bleeding from her now,

it feels like cold, blue ice in her heart…

when all the colors mix together to grey,

and it breaks her heart.”

 

“Mad Skillz”.

As a lover of Terminal Velocity in Free Fall (although admittedly, I am no swooper by the stretch of anyone’s imagination – but I know a few record title holders in skydiving’s kindred “suicidal sport”), I am not alone in finding this particular parody absolutely hilarious. I have included the original scene of ‘Downfall’ (out of which ‘Mad Skillz’ was created) – followed by the Skydiver Twist in regard to the sport of Swooping. The story behind the original joke is a long story but in short, was about a comment made by an amateur swooper in regard to his own ability to swoop before having the proper canopy or enough hours of training. Enjoy!

Condition.

“I pushed my soul,

in a deep dark hole,

and then I followed it in…

I watched myself crawlin’ out –

as I was crawlin’ in…

got up so tight,

I couldn’t unwind,

I saw so much –

I broke my mind…

I just dropped in… to see what condition my condition was in.”

By Kenny Rogers and The First Edition

Fine Again.

(my all-time favorite song by my all-time favorite band Seether, released in 2000)

I feel the dream in me expire, and there’s no one left to blame it on…

I hear you label me a “liar” ’cause I can’t seem to get this through…

they say it’s over, I can sigh again – yeah…

why try to stay sober when I’m dyin’ here…?

Happy Animals #1 – Bamboo the Skateboarding Dog.

I have TWO favorite things about this video clip:

1) The smiling and happy dog fucking pumps her leg for momentum!!!

2) She is undeniably stoked as Hell to be skating the beach parking lot.

Could YOU Be Love…and Be Loved?

“Don’t let them fool ya, or even try to school ya…

we’ve got a mind of our own,

so go to Hell if what you’re thinkin’ is not right…

LOVE WOULD NEVER LEAVE US ALONE,

if I am the darkness, you must come out the light;

Could you be love?

And be loved?

Don’t let them change ya, or even re-arrange ya…

we’ve got a life to live – they say:

Only – Only – Only the fittest of the fittest shall survive…”

SO STAY ALIVE…”

My Own Worst Enemy.

By Lit

It’s no surprise to me, I am my own worst enemy…

’cause every now and then, I kick the living shit outta me…

the smoke alarm is going off and there’s a cigarette – still burning…

Please tell me why –

the car is in the front yard, and I –

am sleeping with my clothes on –

I came in through the window, last night…

and you’re gone…gone.

California Dreamin’.

” All the leaves are brown, and the sky is grey

I’ve been for a walk on winter day…

If I didn’t tell her, I could leave today…

California dreamin’ on such a Winter’s Day.”

Love Song.

Adele covers The Cure classic Love Song…

“However far away,

I will always love you…

However long I stay,

I will always love you…

Whatever words I say,

I will always love you…”

“Face-Down, Frog Modified”.

“And, Always Watch the Horizon, Okay?

On a super funny note:

If you have ever been skydiving, then you’ll know how true to life this clip is in regard to instruction…and if you don’t skydive – now ya know just about as much as those of us that do! :-)”

Don’t Dream it’s Over.

“There is freedom within,

there is freedom without,

try to catch the deluge

in a paper cup;

There’s a battle ahead,

many battles are lost,

but you’ll never see the end of the road,

while you’re traveling with me…

Hey now, hey now
Don’t dream it’s over
Hey now, hey now
When the world comes in
They come, they come
To build a wall between us
We know they won’t win

Now I’m walking again,

to the beat of a drum,

and I’m counting the steps

to the door of your heart;

only shadows ahead,

barely clearing the roof,

get to know the feeling of

liberation and release…”

Feelin’ Good.

it is over

“Fish in the sea, you know how I feel…?

river running free, you know how I feel…?

blossom on the tree, you know how I feel….?

its a new dawn, its a new day –

it’s a new life for me…

and I’m feelin’ good.

Dragonfly out in the sun, you know what I mean, don’t ya know?…

Butterflies all havin’ fun, you know what I mean…?

Sleep in peace when day is done, that’s what I mean…

and this old world is a new world –

and a bold world for me…

and I’m feelin’ good.”

Take On Me.

“Talking away
I don’t know what I’m to say
I’ll say it anyway
Today isn’t my day to find you
Shying away
I’ll be coming for your love, OK?

Oh, things that you say
Is it a life or just to play my worries away?
You’re all the things I’ve got to remember
You’re shying away
I’ll be coming for you anyway

Take on me (take on me),
Take me on (take on me)
I’ll be gone – In a day…”

Everybody’s Fool.

“Look here she comes now,

bow down and stare in wonder…

oh how we love you, no flaws

when you’re pretending…

but now I know – she

never was, and never will be;

you don’t know how you’ve betrayed me…

and somehow you’ve got everybody fooled…

…without the mask, where will you hide?

Can’t find yourself…lost in your lies…

I know the truth now,

I know who you are,

and I don’t love you any more…

never was, and never will be;

you’re not real and you can’t save me;

and somehow now you’re everybody’s fool.”

Shimmer – Fuel.

“she says that love is for fools that fall behind,

and I’m somewhere between…

never really know:

a killer from a savior – so I break at the bend.

Here and now:

will we ever be again?

’cause I have found:

all that shimmers in this world is sure to fade –

away again…

It’s too far away for me to hold, too far away…

….guess I’ll let it go.”

Get Up Now. And Dance.

“Don’t let them fool ya,

Or even try to school ya!

Oh, no…

We’ve got a mind of our own,

So go to hell if what you’re thinking is not right!

Love would never leave us alone,

If I am the darkness, you must come out the light.

Could you be love, and be loved?

Could you be love, and be loved?

The road of life is rocky and you may stumble too,

So while you point your fingers, someone else is judging you

Love your brother men….

Don’t let them change ya,

Or even rearrange ya.

Oh, no!

We’ve got a life to live.

They say:

only,

only,

‘only the fittest of the fittest shall survive’ …

So Stay Alive!
