Day 8

A Song You Know All the Words to

Back in high school my global teacher made us study this song as a way to understand and connect our lives to modern history. So, because I’m me, I learned the song.

Also, it was the first time I reazlied the lyric went:

“Space monkey, Mafia” and not “Space monkey mafia”

A Space Monkey Mafia would be awesome though.

Day 7

A Song That Reminds You of a Certain Event

Going to keep these next few short and non-blabbing, because I can. Yeah. I rocklike that.

Anyway, a song that reminds me of a certain event is

Specifically it remind me of Thanksgiving. You know how people get nostalgic for certain things, well I hear this and I get nostalgic for being a child and the magic that surrounded Christmas. It was pretty much prohibited in my house until after the Macy*s Thanksgiving Day Parade, when dad would put on this song, and mom would take Christmas decorations out and start decorating. Yeah. Good times.

Day 6

A Song That Reminds You of Somewhere

So many many choices here, since I’m one of those people who associates things with other things. For example, the song Blind, by The Talking Heads? Reminds me of that time we were driving back from my cousins’ in Long Island, and it was late at night, I know cause it was summer, and it was dark out. I don’t remember much, but I do remember that specifically. There’s a bunch of songs I can associate with France, either because it was sung at karaoke, or because I was listening to it on my cd player while I rode my bike.

Soul Coughing, in general, reminds me of specific events back in college.

But College was a big deal for me, I remember being there, and enjoying the hell out of myself. Should I have paid more attention to my studies? Yes. Very much yes. But it’s hard t regret a time full of great friends and a lot of laughs, and few frustrations. Even the people I’m not friends with anymore, the people I lost touch with, or had a falling out with, it’s hard for me to be sad or angry about the entire relationship because I had such a good time with them at school, that I can’t help but smile.

In this category, there was place, an on campus apartment, that I hung out at a lot. It was called The Boat, because we were pirates, and I can’t tell you how cool it was that these juniors who I thought were really really cool, deigned to hang out with me, a lowly freshman.

That year there was a snowstorm that gave us a snow day. So a friend of mine, and myself, went over to The Boat, where we watched The Transformers: The Animated Movie (the only Transformers movie, IMO), and one of our friends, the one I had a huge crush on at the time, talked about this song, and its repetitive, yet awesome, nature. As he sang the chorus and performed repetitive movements (such as opening and closing cabinet doors), we were all cracking up. So more than just a place, I remember a time as well, a damn good time, whenever I hear

I had a really great night a few weeks ago. And it was one of those nights that, looking back on it, I’m still stoked about it.

To truly understand this remarkable night, I have to take you back to my second semester of my freshman year at college.  I don’t remember the night specifically, but I think it was a weeknight, and I remember being really depressed about something. I don’t know what, maybe I had a fight with a friend, or the guy I had a rush on had a girlfriend, or I failed a test, or all my friends went to dinner without me and never told me… or something stupid.

Anyway, I was walking around the campus,  glum because I was in my “if people see I am sad maybe they will cheer me up and I will find the love of the my life because he didn’t want to see me sad” phase. It was a dumb phase. But I did run into a friend. Well, she wasn’t really a friend friend at the time. She was someone who was friends with a group of people I wanted to be able to call friends, and while I think they called me their friend at the time, I didn’t feel like I was because they were all juniors and I was not so I felt like a 3-year-old and that they just humored me because that’s what you do to a three-year old.

Anyway, she was friends with them, and because I hung out with them sometimes I recognized her and knew her name, and she knew mine, and that was good enough I suppose. She was walking somewhere with intent, and came across me.
