Weezer!!!

Posted 09-18-2009 at 05:15 PM by dsmith2904

It took entirely too long to get to Irvine Meadows last night (yeah, I'm old-school like that, still calling it Irvine Meadows) for the Blink-182/Weezer show. The parking lot was super-full so I had to walk forever to get the venue. The concession stand was having some kind of beer issue so it took me 20 minutes to make it through that relatively short line.

With pizza and drink finally in hand, the lights go off and Weezer's intro music comes on. Damn it!! I power walk up the hill...

I Gotta Feeling

Posted 09-17-2009 at 02:21 PM by dsmith2904

I'm actually pretty excited about seeing the Black Eyed Peas open up for U2 at the Rose Bowl next month. I like the group's past singles and have a certain affection for Fergie ("The Dutchess" is a great dance pop record and I grew up watching her on "Kids Inc."), so had a fair amount of confidence in the selection when the tour was announced.

Lately I've gotten more enthusiastic about the Black Eyed Peas' set because of the song "I Gotta Feeling." I...

Happy Rex Manning Day

I adore the movie "Empire Records," it's a great one to pop in when I'm sick or down or bored because it totally picks me up. It's about a record store, the kids who work there and the one day that changes their lives forever, but in a totally quirky, slightly indie, '90s kind of way.



A portion of the movie is dedicated to Rex Manning, a former teen idol turned bitter pop singer...

Black

I believe my high school boyfriend truly had a soundtrack to his life. Any major moment, happy occurrence, favorite memory was accompanied by a song, and hearing said song would instantly transport him back to that time and place.

For me, songs aren't necessarily tied to a specific moment, but instead a series of moments or a time in my life.

Pearl Jam's "Black" just came on the radio and sent me back to high school. I was best friends with my brother's on-again/off-again...

All the Way to the Light

Posted 04-28-2009 at 05:05 PM by dsmith2904

In his first Tweet of the day, John Mayer mentioned that today is his 11,518th day. I did a little math and figured out that today is my 11,580th day.

There is a theory that it takes about 10,000 hours to become an expert at something. I've been on this Earth now for about 277,920 hours, so I think that more than qualifies me as an expert in living my life.

Knowing that, actually having the numbers to look on, gives me comfort, makes each day less scary, less overwhelming....
