Opening Pandora and finding Christmas

7 Dec

Today I decided to wrap my Christmas presents because I felt cheery and in the moood. So I decided to listen to some mood music while wrapping the presents. Except listening to Kenny G’s “Every time I Close My Eyes” while wrapping presents made my wrapping paper do this:

and then switching to Barry White just made my wrapping paper strip itself…ok enough with the jokes…or the attempted jokes lol what I really did was go on my Pandora and created a radio station based on Vince Guaraldi’s Christmas song “Skating”. I love this song and was able to learn it on the Piano which was a triumphant task for me because I thought it sounded quiet complex. Speaking of Barry White, listening to his song “Can’t get enough of Your Love Babe” made me think…can you listen to these love songs while you’re single?! I mean, I feel that this song would sound so much better while dancing with someone you love. I felt that dancing by myself to this song would just make me feel like I was in a romantic comedy where the single girl starts dancing and then the door bell rings but the girl can’t hear it and so the guy in the movie (her crush) decides “Hey this door is unlocked let me just walk in” and then while she is dancing crazy he walks in and she’s sOOOOO embarrassed!!!!!! Oh man being a film major makes you think of these things. Kind of reminds me of the scene from Love Actually when Hugh Grant starts dancing to “Jump” oh classic. The video below is in French. I don’t know why.

I’m excited because I have plans for Monday. I found out that Sweat Records is going to host a screening of “The Stella Shorts” including a personalized message from the group “The State”!
What I’m really excited about though is how close i’ll be to Verdaddy’s. What!? You haven’t heard!? Its the best fast food Mexican restaurant on Biscayne blvd! Introduced to me by a fellow fan, it is a small ‘mom and pop’ shop owned by a ‘pop’ that is really just a ‘man’ because I don’t think he’s a father where he combines his Mexican acquired cooking skills with reasonable prices minus the degraded dog food meat Taco Bell offers (no offense degraded dog food meat). I recommend the “enchiladas con carne” or ….yea thats my all time favorite. So I was looking over the soundtrack for “New Moon” and like others, dumbfounded that so many good artists would agree to this!!! What were they thinking!? Anywho I was surprised that Radiohead’s “15 steps” was on the first soundtrack and even more surprised that Thom Yorke was part of the second. The song is called “Hearing Damage” (a thing the movies dialogue may inflict) which I have come to like. I added it on one of my Pandora stations and became even more surprised when I found another Radiohead song as part of another unexpected soundtrack. It is the acoustic version of “Fake Plastic Trees” and it was on the soundtrack of (drum roll) CLUELESS! Yes, the movie that left you clueless on why you bought a movie ticket for it! lol So I guess this isn’t the first time Radiohead has been featured on a tweeny movie. Hey I just noticed that “Lol’s” are like laugh tracks for writing. Just in case you didnt know if something was suppose to be funny I will let you know! LOL ….LOL.

Below is a playlist of the songs I’ve mentioned on my blog this week:
