YouTube – Flyleaf – “I’m So Sick”

Oh so many days have gone…

It’s not so much that I bore easily, it’s just that when I finish reading whatever and I’m sure that I’ve accomplished my projects for the day, I just can’t stay away from the the old blog poster tool. I don’t even know what I’m gonna write most times. It’s kind of an exercise to practice my touch typing, as it is poor.

Now.

That all said, Jen and I are both working our way through the vocal solo tours on Rock Band (Me on Medium, Jen on Easy). Careful readers or longtime readers will know that Jen is some kind of mutant “sing-along” game player where she can just hum along and rock the socks off of these games, which makes her choice to play on easy somewhat perplexing. I think she’s just trying to score easy achievement points.

Yes, I have added a bunch of DLC to the game (Nine Inch Nails, Punk content and some alternative stuff). As I write this Jen is singing “Buddy Holly”.

Which leads into why the song appears at the top of this post; I kept hearing this song and was even aware of FlyLeaf (I’m fairly certain it appears in my iTunes collections) but could not place the song when Jen was singing it a while ago. Now I do; it was on the screen when Justin “Jeepers Creepers” Long was typing away on his Movie OS terminal before Bruce Willis came knocking in Die Hard 4 (Now with more smirking death).

My Dad said he dug on this when he saw the movie.

Oh well.

Speaking of ol’ Dad. We watched the new Billy Connolly “Was it something I said” stand up act this weekend, I’ve watched it a couple times at this point. I’m not a big fan of the majority of it as it was borne of “Look at the trappings of my wealth and listen to me bemoan them and aren’t men and women different?” I enjoyed a bit of the religious commentary and the parts about door theft; but I think Billy has pulled a bit far from his roots and forgotten what makes him so funny – the common touch.

Then there was one more thing this weekend:

What silly notion led the Bishop to use a man who was wealthy all his life and died young after NOT fighting against the Germans in World War One as an example of a “Good Catholic”

It seems to me that any Saint that was wealthy all their life should have their Sainthood revoked on principal as they never actually forsook their material wealth.

That’s just me.

Oh; and the reward for being a “Good Catholic” — Death at 24 and posthumous rewards.

I’d rather be a good person in this life and live a long life surrounded by those who benefited from my good works (even if they didn’t know I did it).

That’s just me.
