A Musical Sort of Day

I have been enjoying what I would like to call re-connecting to music in the past year or so. I used to LIVE for music, I still kinda do but when I entered University life as I know it just plummeted into nothingness. A first real relationship and University sucks the time DRY. Not that I regret it or anything as I did learn a lot about life, I graduated from one degree, dabbled in another and hope to finish this current one sooner rather than later. Plus the extensive long term relationship with my first love recently ended quite well although in hind site it should have ended earlier but we were too afraid to take that step cause you get used to hanging on.

Last year I broke my foot and I really took the time to sit back, contemplate and reassess my life. I looked into the past in order to see how I can learn from what I have experienced. I learn from the past, live for today, and look forward to the future. Now that I have time for myself and I am around more people with similar interests on a daily basis I am able to do what I want (art, music, sports...whatever) and be quite a bit happier.

So for today I am going to post music because I have lost touch from it and have been enjoying getting back into it, albeit very slowly with some bumps here and there. :P There are WAY too many vids to post. So I only have a selection here...which will still be way too much, but I dun give a shit 'cause i love the songs.

Oh BT, reminds me of good times. Night time driving in a foreign city to just walking the streets of European cities

Paul Oakenfold's Essential Mix...This is only one part of many. This stuff is epic.

So nostalgic...

The sound of Death is the Martyr of Beauty reminds me of a foggy morning in the forested hilly countryside with sun peaking through to shine on the dew drops.

Skinny Puppy! Reminds me of grade school and just hangin out in the warmer months. I love the video too.

NIN always a fav. Fuck yeah Trent Reznor

Bowie and Reznor = AWESOME. This music video is fucking great too. Makes me laugh everytime.

Gary Numan and NIN = EPIC!!!!!! FFFFFFFFFFFFFF. I wish I saw this. Shoulda seen the show in London. Would have been worth it. FUCKING AWESOME! Reznor's cover of Metal was fucking great too but this is just exponentially more epic. god damn.

The Major Tom story:

(1980) -- My friend sent me this awhile ago, had to include it cause the kid is cute

(1995) -- Love the long hair. For real. Too bad it wasn't dark

That was satisfying.


  1. Oh wow thats alot of music, I'll have to check it all out! And are you enjoying the geology degree, how far along are you?

  2. Yeah...I totally would have posted more music but blogs really aren't about that are they? LOL. I am new at this bloggin thang, but its all good. I love geology. Some classes are hard as fuck but after it all I learn so much and I realize it was well worth it. Keeps me busy too. I am in my final year. So far I have been successful in pulling a Van Wilder, I did one degree blindly not knowing what I wanted to do then when I got my shit together I realized I really wanted to do Geology because I find it very interesting. The job itself would be pretty fun as travelling is involved and the chances of finding a job after I graduate are good which is a bonus
