(More Life Reflections)
It's kind of Monday. I've probably been the worst employee in the universe these past few months, but today I really feel like changing that. I'm going to dedicate this week to doing everything with precision and accuracy. That includes semi-updating this blog.
Today's playlist is available at Grooveshark, or in the embedded widget below.
In this playlist:
1. Crystal Ball by Grimes
2. Cover My Eyes by La roux
3. Astroboy (And the Proles on Parade) by The Buggles
4. Man Without A Yes by Obi Best
5. o0Oo0Oo by Oberhofer
6. Don't Stop (Color on the Walls) by Foster the People
7. Boogie Down by MGMT
I probably had a very relaxing weekend. Saturday was my older sister's birthday and Sunday was Mother's Day. I spent a portion of Saturday watching movies with my sister. Munched on pizza with my Mom on Sunday while being on my better behavior. Can't say that I completely behaved myself, I got a bit grouchy over some "well you're single" jokes, but over all behaved.
I spent the rest of Sunday watching a documentary on The 14 Hour Technicoulour Dream (Dream) and How I Met Your Mother (HIMYM). Most of Dream covered Pink Floyd and small insights into Syd Barrett's multi-color character. HIMYM should really be called "Before I Met Your Mother" as it really only talks about the main character's life before he actually meets the girl he marries.
All this inspired the theme to this playlist. I'm largely attracted to psychedlic music and topics because of the rich, colorful, and even majestically whimsical feelings it builds in me. It's almost like swimming in a fish bowl with thousands of colors radiating out of a prism into my blood. Kind of like tasting rainbows and easing into a bodily sway of ecstasy.
At the same time, HIMYM reminded me of the state of life and where I want to be in five years. So like maybe I do want to find a special someone to parade around town and strategically denounce modern society evils. Or do I want to dance to my own private soundtrack of music like in this playlist? Maybe I want to create art and live a pseudosolitary life.
I kind of just want to do everything and attempt to do it well. I can only do one thing at a time, though. Must learn this organization thing so I can continue my own color Dream party with no regrets.
