The Comment Funk

Come on,
bring on the schnoobs,
bring on the funk.

I Told You They Existed

If any of you know about the musical greatness that is "Polar Bears of the Night" by myself and Ms. Lam, then you'll appreciate this:

They truly are enchanting creatures. Worthy of such a song tribute. When I get home I'll be sure to post the song which inspired millions, like these kind folks, to embrace the polar bears!

I'd like to think Lam is the one on the right.

Ahh, noble polar bear!

I <3 Commenters

I ran across this great quote on a lyric website. People comment on what they think the song is about. It's so great because I was reading this one quote and I thought to myself, "Wow, this is a great comment...profound, intelligent, very positive" Here is the first part:

"I think it's about getting lost in the details of life. Sometimes it's just about living life and trying to be happy in the moment. Planning the perfect career or perfect marriage is temporary, all passions fade. Mother Nature is timeless, she doesn't care about your petty life..."

And then he pulls 180 and completely slaps ya in the face with:

"...Eh maybe, could be about a girl...I sure as hell hope not, no bitch ever brought me happiness."

I couldn't stop laughing. Great, simply great!

Return of the Jedi : PIAS Edition

On Saturday, April 5, I'll return to Play It Again Sports. Michael, my old boss, asked if I could help out this weekend because he was short on staff. Even though it involves waking up at 8:30am on a post-Friday drink-a-thon morning, I am excited to help him out. I feel it will be a positive experience. I'll be down in Fredericksburg anyways for a friends birthday and the shift he needs me for seems to fit perfectly in my schedule.

Ahh the old job alma mater (actual PIAS not pictured):

I'm curious about how it is going to feel to be back there. The last five months have been quite traumatic and I wonder if being back in a place I really loved will be a nice break or a sad reminder. My guess is it will be a nice break. I believe I'm past that whole "I want to be back in college" phase. It's no doubt going to be weird working with the old crew and Michael. I'm sure to go down memory lane and succumb to nostalgia. Hamper back to the good-old-day of college and reflect on that tumultuous senior year. But hopefully it'll lead to some needed resolution.

If anything it will be a nice change of pace from my regular day-to-day sitting in front of a computer. As said in a previous post, I've become a depository for information. For the past five months revelations on life and living come bi-weekly (average) among those revelations is the notion that an office job is simply not for me. The need to move around, be outside once in a while, and really believe what I do is unique is now critical for happiness. Thus far in my career I've only done the extremes. I went from the exact opposite of an office job (PIAS) to the classic office job (Science). I now see these two extremes serving as well needed experience in what no to do. Thanks to both I know my ideal lies in between.

On an semi-unrelated topic I will also be picking up the rest of the Radiohead tickets from Paris. YEAH! I still need to find though, someone else to go with the group. So if you're interested in the greatest band alive, the ticket is $45.
