Life is hectic. Lots to do and when you try to get all of it done in the same day you run down and get sick. What are we really looking to "get" out of life?? where do I want to be in five years? Depressing thought. I'd be really happy to stop where I am and spend time doing things and learning things. S.O. and I watched Groundhog Day last week and I sat there being jealous of Bill Murry! I know, the point of the movie is that we should be nice people in our day to day lives and interactions. Damn it! I want to stop life, play piano, sleep around, read books, smoke a big wooden pipe and tell the world to piss off! Oh yeah, to clarify - sleep around *with no commitment*. But that may have been obvious. Hell, let me extend that no commitment to everything else too.
I want to have my cake and eat it too. Right now, as short sighted as it may be, I'm even ok just eating it.
Rav Shmuel Skaits is releasing his first major album. He's been in the US for the past 4 years after a while in Israel. Here is one of the best music videos I've seen in a long time.
Also on my fun list is my new, addictive, shockwave game. "Double Wires." My high score is 180yd. Let me know if you best it.
On a more thoughtful note, I need to work on slowing down. How often do I live a moment? How often am I doing nothing more than just "doing what I'm doing"? It's tough. I get it when I'm playing music or when I'm cooking but how do I do that with my relationships? How can I dance without feeling self conscious and embarrassed? How can I sing without feeling that I need to organize, harmonize, syncopate, synchronize, or otherwise stick out? What is the recipe for "Just be"?
We could use a bit more fun in this post...
A guy goes over to his friend's house, rings the bell, and the wife answers the door. "Hi, is Tony home?" "No he went to the store." "Well, do you mind if I wait?" "No come in."
They sit down and the friend says "You know Nora, you have the greatest breasts I have ever seen. I'd give you a hundred bucks if I could just see one." Nora thinks about this for a second an figures what the hell - a hundred bucks. She opens her robe and shows one. He promptly thanks her and throws a 100 bucks on the table. They sit there a while longer and Chris says "They are so beautiful I got to see the both of them. I'll give you another 100 bucks if I could just see the both of them together." Nora thinks about this and says what the hell opens her robe and gives Chris a nice long look. Chris thanks her and throws another 100 bucks on the table then says he can't wait any longer for Tony and leaves.
A while later Tony arrives home and his wife says "You know your weird friend Chris came over." Tony thinks about this for a second and says "Well, did he drop off the 200 bucks he owes me?
