your biggest enemy

Bad thoughts are worse enemies than lions and tigers;

for we can keep out of the way of wild beasts, but bad

thoughts win their way everywhere. The cup that is

full will hold no more; keep your hearts full of good

thoughts, that bad thoughts may find no room to enter.

Flashback. Throwback. Back back back

with one comment

So, my sister came over (Hi Michaela!) and we some how got to discussing songs we remember our dad playing when we were kids. Jimmy Buffett, Neil Young, Traveling Wilburys, Bob Dylan, John Prine…the hippie stuff!

But then I remembered…

You’re doing it all backwards.

Today just keeps getting better! First I find Cookie Monster in a tree, and now THIS!

So, I know in the new year you aren’t necessarily supposed to dwell on the past. You are supposed to leave it behind you, forget it, forgive it, grow from it. Well, for most situations this holds true. But I believe MUSIC is the only thing that comes with us year after year after year!

Where am I going with this?

I just set up my old college computer [circa 2002] and am crying, laughing, freaking out to all the music I have on this thing!! I plan on having an ALL NIGHT LISTENING SESSION fueled by several 5 Hour Energy (SHOUT OUT TO 5 HR ENERGY….WHERE’S MY SPONSORSHIP!??) I will then pull out some of my favorites and list them right here. In no particular order of course….

OH GOD, 1 song down, 6404 more to go! & it has already started!!

1. Michelle Branch – Breathe
2. Astronautalis – Oceanwalk (whom I believe is opening a few Tegan & Sara shows in CANADUH later this year!)
3. Matt Costa – Darling Be Home Soon (which is a remake of Joe Cocker’s 1969 original, which you can see HERE!)
4. Brad Paisley ft. Alison Krauss – Whiskey Lullaby (oh yeah, I got down to some country in my hay day!!)
5. The Starting Line – Best Of Me (well this seems fitting since they were just here! Brings back so many memories!)
6. Evan and Jaron – Crazy For This Girl (LYKE OMG!! But seriously…what movie was this song from!?)

[For those of you who are worried, Operation Steal That Cookie Monster From That Tree will probably get underway in 4-5 hours. It has to be a night mission. I’ll keep you posted!]

7. Phoenix – Run Run Run (BEFORE the car commercial, bitches!!)
8. The Fratellis – Flathead (Ha, remember these guys? This song was the jams in the day! Where’d they get to?)
9. Blessid Union Of Souls – I Believe Love Will Find A Way (Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!)
10. Natalie Imbruglia – Wishing I Was There (“Put that face away I’m melting for you.”)
11. Justin Timberlake – My Love ft. T.I. & Like I Love You (“It’s just Justin!” Duh! I miss you Justin!!)
12. Straylight Run – Hands in the Sky (Big Shot) (This song LIVE > This song NOT LIVE. Find out for yourself, trust me!)
13. Our Lady Peace – Life (Life is waiting for you.)
14. Lifehouse! (Seriously! So many good Lifehouse songs I forgot about! Just go listen to all the old stuff!)

[TIMEOUT! So, while listening to music from this old computer I’ve also been browsing all the pictures. 99% of them = GROSS and will never be moved off of this hard drive…EVER! However, I did come across 1 so far that I MUST SHARE! Our dear Harry, our first Boston Terrier! He forever changed the Rucci family. I love this dog!]

We miss you Harry Woogle!

15. Robots In Disguise – Turn It Up (This is all I think of when I listen to this song: SILVIAOMG!)
16. Aqualung – Strange & Beautiful (The OC Season 1 what whaaaaat!!?)
17. Augustana – Boston (Actually listened to this all the way to Boston once.)
18. Tegan and Sara – Living Room (Will probably always be my favorite song of theirs!)
19. Mike Doughty – Tremendous Brunettes (“Slow down, don’t fuck with my high!)
20. The Perishers – Pills (Now I remember why I love music. Please LISTEN HERE!)
21. Butch Walker – This Is The Sweetest Little Song (Off of his amazing albumThe Rise and Fall of Butch Walker & The Let’s-Go-Out-Tonite’s)

[Operation Steal That Cookie Monster From That Tree Update: 10:33pm EST – About to go take a recon walk on the block the said Cookie Monster was located to see if he is still in distress.

11:03pm EST – He is still there. Plan to steal him around 1 a.m. I will report back later! Expect pics!]

22. John Mayer – Comfortable

[ 1:10am EST – I GOT HIM!!!! He’s like the size of a 5yr. old <33]

23. Marvelous 3 – Cigarette Lighter Love Song (Wait, I just Wiki’d this and it says David Bowie helped write it? NO! Seriously? NOOOO!!?)
24. Goldfrapp – Strict Machine (Back when Nip/Tuck was actually good. TRUTH!)
25. Azure Ray – Leap Year (*sigh*)
