I am breaking ALL of the rules (but not really, probably)

Rules are meant to be broken. Or maybe I am just too lazy to follow them.

So this post has nothing to do with any related DailyPost topic thingamagigs from WordPress (or does this count?)

I probably spelled thingamajig wrong (how do you spell that word, anyway?)

And I know that – at least on twitter – music is usually reserved for Music Mondays…but because I can’t wait for Monday, Happy Music Friday!

I don’t know about you, but my Fridays are just as – if not more – crazy than Mondays. It’s my day to tie up loose ends from the work week. It can get kinda crazy, finalizing last minute design work, re-organizing art supplies and lesson plans from teaching, driving to and fro across the county, spotting plant material at job sites that needed to go in yesterday, going for end of week bank run, and if I’m lucky, setting a lunch date with a girlfriend or my mama…you name it, I’ll squeeze it in.

But, as you probably already know, music always makes the day flow so much better.

(Oh, geez, flashback!) Did I ever mention that back in the day, in a land far, far away, I used to be a DJ for Cuesta College in San Luis Obispo? I was studying Mass Media/Journalism at the time…and I was the only girl DJ (I know, right? High five). Funny how some things in life come full circle.

So here it is. Something to inspire (or distract) you…a little ditty from one of my fave, fave FAVORITE artists, Pheonix. A cool acoustic version of ‘1901’ to start your weekend off right…

And if you haven’t seen it yet, don’t forget to check out the trailer for the film, Somewhere, featuring music by Phoenix. Enjoy the tunes!

1901 from album wolfgang amadeus:

Counting all different ideas drifting away
Past and present, they don’t matter, now the future’s sorted out
Watch her moving in elliptical patterns
Think it’s not what you say, what you say is way too complicated
For a minute thought I couldn’t tell how to fall out

It’s twenty seconds until the last call
You’re going, “Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey”
Lie down you know it’s easy
Like we did it over summer long
And I’ll be anything you ask and more
You’re going, “Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey”
It’s not a miracle we needed
No, I wouldn’t let you think so
Fold it, fold it, fold it, fold it

Girlfriend, oh your girlfriend is drifting away
Past and present, 1855-1901
Watch them built up a meteor tower
Think it’s not going to stay anyway, think it’s overrated
For a minute thought I couldn’t tell how to fall out

It’s twenty seconds until the last call
You’re going, “Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey”
Lie down you know it’s easy
Like we did it over summer long
And I’ll be anything you ask and more
You’re going, “Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey”
It’s not a miracle we needed
No, I wouldn’t let you think so
Fold it, fold it, fold it, fold it
