Black Flag

I’ve had a pretty bad month. I’m hopefully going to be bouncing back soon. I’m struggling a bit on content for the blog, so I though I’d share the other side of my brain in this post. I’ve already shared my “Pep Me up! Wooo Yeah! You go girl” song (You’ve Got Another Thing Coming – By Judas Priest) Can you say MANIC?!?

Here’s the bi-polar side of things. Kings X wrote Black Flag back in 1992. I typed out the lyrics, if it’s too much metal for ya 😉 The video looks like it was made on a budget of $500 (really hoaky), but the song is great.

A year in the hole had taken its toll

When I took a good look at me

And what a surprise the scope of my eyes could only see black

And I remember someone who was taking them two by two

and lately I’d become the one who’d have laughed at you too!

There was a Black Flag on my morning

There was a Black Flag on my day

There was a Black Flag on everything around and I was walking backwards again I walked in the day, my usual way, looking through a 2 X 4

It colored my view, I couldn’t see you

Or maybe I just wouldn’t

And I remember the time when the sunlight fell on my head

And lately I’d become a member of the walking dead

There was a Black Flag on my morning

There was a Black Flag on my day

There was a Black Flag on everything around and I was walking backwards again and I know that I was wrong.

It was up to me if I wanted to see

And I remember the day when I saw the mask on my face And I knew that it was time to put the thing in its place I’d put the

Black Flag on my morning

I’d put the Black Flag on my day

I’d put the Black Flag on everything around And I was walking backwards again And I know that I was wrong

I don’t celebrate Christmas, however I love, love Christmas lights! This regular sized bulb was located in the normal bulb shelves, not by the decorations*, and for only $5. Score! I do tend to zone out looking at it. Relaaaax 😎

*So that means I can keep it lit all year?!?

Sunday Funnies!!

Happy Sunday!

I’m not a fan at all of advertising or watching commercials. Thank goodness for DVR’s & the FF button!! Yet, it seems now you can’t watch a T.V. show without some kind of product placement right smack dab in the middle of the show. I recently watched a show where two characters were walking to her car to go somewhere and her line was, “I really love how my Kia Sorento has this self raising rear door. It makes for easier loading of groceries.” You can’t FF over that! Advertisers are sure are getting sneaky. This is why my ‘bOOb tOOb’ watching has gotten less.

On the other side, I do appreciate a well done commercial, and this one is one of my favorites! Let alone it is for a cause that is close to my heart!!

Thanks for not Fast Forwarding through it =-)
