“Next artist, David Dondero, also crappy. Overly idealistic lyrics, poorly composed + Below average voice + Guitar = Singer/songwriter who probably thought he was cool in college. Also, is it hard to figure out how to end a song so that people know it’s over and you’re supposed to clap.
Okay, Aaron, who are you really mad at? The artists - or yourself for not just turning this podcast off? As MJ said, “take a look at the man in the mirror”. I could use a little Billie Jean about now.
“Yes, but I just assumed it was “ALL songs considered, a bunch of crappy songs then rejected, and a few good songs presented to the world at large”. Okay, calm down, Aaron. To each his own. To each his own.”—His response, after I replied, “Well, *ALL* songs are considered.”
“Okay, I am listen to the Tiny Desk Concert series, and decided to finish out the Shearwater group – the one we were teasing about being inspired by a fantasy novel. Well, the song I’m listening to now is named for a back entrance to climbing Mt. Everest. Also, it includes banjo, glockenspiel, and falsetto singing. One of the guys is wearing what appear to be 3D glasses. Now someone is pulling out an oboe, and the lead singer is talking about his bird survey work on the Faulkland Islands. How the hell did this get past the folks at All Songs Considered? S-U-C-K-S.

I successfully packed my lunch everyday. Each day, with the exception of Monday, I refrained from buying a snack on my afternoon walk. I only had one cup of coffee each morning. Instead of drinking a coke every afternoon I drank my homemade, fruity water. The only soda I had was at dinner with Amy on Wednesday night.
I would like to say that I will continue this trend next week, but since I’ll be out of town all weekend, I might not be organized enough to do it. However, I should remember that my lunches were delicious and didn’t give me that after-lunch stupor and that drinking water all day really is better for me than coffee/tea/soda.
I’m looking for a song to go with a graduation slideshow. Preferably about 5 minutes long. These are 12 year olds graduation from my school and there will be lots of students even younger in attendance. Any ideas?
Yum yum yum. The shiny, silver wrapper with its tiny little flag. It shines and shimmers with light galore. The wrapper looks like a flower. Spread your wings and fly. The flag I mentioned before is now a decoration that’s floating in the sky.
