I drive a Space Ship

I drive a space ship, but its not a Lincoln and I’m not Lady Gaga, but I may be gaga.  Everyone says she has a space ship, which I definitely could believe with the way she dresses.

Those Lincoln commercials got me thinking they’re selling space ships which in my opinion is really awesome. Its got futuristic 80s music that are all covers for some reason but are still cool and they say awesome things like space ships don’t have keys.  If I liked the way the Lincoln looked over the car I have (which I don’t) and had the money I would probably buy a Lincoln based on the commercial.

Major Tom by Shiny Toy Guns instead of Peter Schilling

Space Oddity by Cat Power instead of David Bowie

Burnin’ for you by Shiny Toy Guns (Lincoln must love them or they just like 80s covers) instead of Blue Oyster Cult

Under the Milky Way by Sia instead of The Church

I drive a Honda Civic ’09 and it comes complete with an electric speedometer and a video gamish steering wheel.  Its sleek fast and as a pinstrip down the side and its really low to the ground and oval.

Yes I love space ships and futuristic music and people too if you haven’t figured it out and I’m not ashamed.  How about you? And have you noticed the Lincoln commercials at all?

Don’t Fear the Reaper

I finally found out what more cowbell means. I’ve heard the joke more often than someone who doesn’t understand necessarily wants to hear.  I knew it was an SNL skit and that’s about it.  But then I heard Don’t fear the Reaper and looked it up and viola the SNL skit.  And the real song does sound like it has cowbells which makes it funnier.  The skit’s funny (Much funnier than the joke out of context which I fear I will do because it was really funny.

The song’s awesome and not about suicide as so many people think.  I never even thought about that until a read some comments and stuff.  I just assumed it was about eternal love even beyond death.  What do you think about the meaning of the song?


cowbell I kind of used a little more cowbell.

Rock N’ Roll

I think its kind of sad that it took the game guitar hero to make me really love rock. I’ve been moving in that direction over the past few years. I had to discover Led Zeppelin, The Doors, and Stevie Nicks after that I started liking classic rock more. Before I would describe me listen to rock as apreciation, now I can’t get enough guitars.  Not to mention that I now know the life stories of everyone from Jim Morrison, Slash, and Axel Rose. The weird thing is its not like I haven’t heard a lot of the songs I really really like now alot but now I love them and before I didn’t.  I would almost describe it as tone deafness or something going away, because now I feel like I can hear more in the music than I had before. 

So now while I draw I can listen to Guns N’ Roses, The Doors, Led Zeppelin, Heart, Van Halen, etc.  I’ve also noticed that I like what I dubbed “hippie rock” like The Doors, Blue Oyster Cult, and Jefferson Airplane. The 60s and 70s have the most awesome music ever.  What makes me somewhat sad is why didn’t I know about these groups so much earlier

Now your probably wondering what I used to listen to. Well that would be 80s, 90s, and music made now.  There is a movement now (which I like) for music that sounds like 60s.  I guess I’ll be talking more about this later so I’ll stop rambling.
