That John Tesh is so Prolific!
Every wednesday night when I close the restaurant, The John Tesh radio show plays on WLIT W-Light (or W-Suck, as I refer to it) Every city has their own version of this station. In Chicago it was “Windy 100” They all play the crappy soft rock that plays way too much Phil Collins, Brian Adams (yes that is Brian not Ryan) Of course there are 3 songs that they play constantly. Every time I hear these songs I just smile and grit my teeth just pushing all that fury down inside like some sort of song-hating volcano.
The First Song:
Five for Fighting – “100 Years” the stupid hook of “15 there’s still time” just sounds like some sort of Rhesus monkey squeeking to background music.
The Second Song:
Martina McBride – “This One’s For the Girls” This song is at first catchy, then it is heart warming because it tells encourages girls to gain self confidance, after that wears off, this song is annoying as satan trying to play “it’s a small world after all” on a saw. The songs goes through a number of ages that women go through and encourages them in their lives. At work I enjoy making up my own verses that include lines like this: “this one’s for all the fetus’ about three months” (but then I ran into the problem of their being no rhyme for month) so I moved on to “this one’s for all the girls about 105, living on respirators, just trying to survive. (that one worked a little bit better)
And last but not least…The Third song:
Jefferson Starship – “We Built this City on Rock and Roll” This song was named as the worst song of Rock and Roll by Blender Magazine…Their list was good but I did have some disagreements with it, never the less, This one is BAD! I liked, and still like Jefferson Airplane. I was almost obsessed with them back in high school, but never got into the 80’s spin-offs of the original cast. The Doobie Brothers and Chicago went this route also, exchanging songs like “Rockin’ Down The Highway” for “What a Fool believes” with Michael Mcdonald on lead vocals (The way he sings is just pathetic) Chicago Used to have awesome songs like “25 or 6 to 4” but in the 80’s made crap like “Will You Still Love Me” (another of W-suck’s Favorites) So in conclusion, the 80’s was not kind to classic rock artists, so stop playing the pain
But, back on track with John Tesh
Every night his little “Intelligence For Your Life” segments really entertain me. They provide interesting tidbits of info and make the night go a little bit faster. So I salute you John Tesh, keep making that Soulful brand of contemporary adult piano music and Keep the Tidbits coming!
That is what I call it. Blog Fodder. Everyday I look at my life and think “what today is “Blog-Worthy” What will people want to read, and how can I make it interesting.” I don’t know if anything I write about myself is all that intersting but at least it is entertaining to some, like my new Brother and Sister-inlaws!
As my Co-worker Tim has mentioned in the Chatterbox to the right, I do have an admirer at Dots. Dots is an interesting clothes store that is next door to where I work. I made a delivery to a girl that ordered a wrap the other day, and ever since then, she has been “interested” in me. She has asked when I work, and I think my co-workers told her because she came in tonight and tried to make small talk and flirted with me. I gave her the cold shoulder and made her Extreme Peach Smoothie. She Dresses like a girl who wants attention from guys at the bar. Considering that I don’t go to the bar, and am not interested in girls at the bar, or girls who are so damn straight-forward and think that Britney spears is the end-all for fashion, I did not pursue this endeavor. Is it wrong to not even give someone a chance because of things like this? I mean I am pretty sure that our standards, interests, and compatability are pretty far apart just by seeing how she dresses, acts etc. Should I have flirted back and seen how this would have gone?
I didn’t recieve the wedding pictures form my brother, but I did get the downtown ones…so here are a few:
This is a fountain/sculpture in the new Millenium Park Downtown, that is me in front of it, sporting my cool new duds from Express
This is Another Sculpture called Cloud Gate, it is a giant stainless steel thing that is HUGE! It reminded my brother and I of the movie “Flight of the Navigator”
And another….What a beautiful day!!
The Rest of the Day
We (Me, Joel and Liz) also did a Geocache on navy pier this day. after that We went looking for the place that sold The Apprentice ice cream that was subposedly sold at this store downtown…They said that they can never keep it stocked and that they never know when they will get more, this made us all very sad so we got some coffee drinks at starbucks and went home, just in time to do a Geocache with my new Brother-in-law’s and my new Niece The whole Brady Bunch (minus the parents) ate chili together and a good night was had by all. Wedding pictures will be coming in a matter of days, so all the lady’s better get a towel to sop up all the drool when they see the pictures of me in my new suit!
That is all for now….I love you!
P.S. you know you are a nerd when you do a Geocache instead of getting dressed for your mom’s wedding day!
