Angry Women

I was talking to a new friend the other day about music.  One of those, “What type of music do you listen to conversations…?”  I mentioned that through the 90s up until today I like a lot of the woman singers out there.

Might of had a crush on Stevie Nicks back in the day.  Maybe Heart…

But as an adult I was impressed with the Alanis Morissette and Avril Lavigne type.

Today I was out surfing blogs and stopped in at one of my favorites, Harsh Reality.  (This place always makes me laugh.  Love the opinions of the Opinionated Man).  He had the following video up of Christina Perri:

Christina is one of my latest favorites.  I just love her “look”.  The tattoos, combat boots with the wedding dress.  But mostly her teeth.  I know.  That’s a weird comment.  I don’t have any teeth fetishes (not sure if there is even a tooth fetish?)  But the fact that her bottom teeth are crooked.  It just adds to her imperfections which in my opinion, make her attractive.  I’m a screwed up mess, what can I say?

Your gonna catch a cold from the ice inside of your soul. 

Power, thought provoking, deep?  Or maybe just my tooth fetish?

Be Like Mike

Summer of 1991.  I am a few weeks away from turning 21.  Living in Nacogdoches, Texas and attending Stephan F. Austin State University.  I spend most of my summer days listening to the Houston Astros like I posted here.  T and I are in love.

Chicago Bulls and Michael Jordan just won their 6th Championship. The entire world is learning who Michael Jordan #23 is.  The greatest and most competitive basketball player to ever set foot on a court.

I love Michael Jordan.  Watching him on the court is, still to this day, the best I have ever seen.  I imagine there will be nobody better.

Gatorade just decided to offer Mike 13.5 million as their 1st athletic sports star.

Gatorade decides to run a commercial called, Be Like Mike.  The song in the commercial is from the movie, The Jungle Book.  I still whistle it in my head…

Watching Jordan sitting in his red shirt during the commercial just laughing still brings back fun memories.  To me that commercial scene shows that Jordan was human.  He had fun.  He laughed.

After Jordan made the last second fade-away jumper to win the game.. He runs and jumps up pumping his fist.  That scene, that game… will always be etched in my brain.  Amazing.

This weekend during the NBA All-Star Game it will be the 50th Anniversary of Gatorade and they will release the original Be Like Mike advertisement that has been digitally mastered.

Perfection In Lyrics

It has been a busy day that ended with the Rockets losing a game they should of won to the Chicago Bulls.

I don’t really have any new inspirational thoughts today… Nothing earth-shattering has happened.   But I did make a new email friend from WAY up north… Enjoying that.

I was reading Facebook a few months back and an old high school friend that lives on the East Coast posted something that I think about every time I hear Brad Paisley’s song, Perfect Storm.

My ole buddy Chuck posted,

The single best line ever put down in song lyrics is the following….

If she were a drink she’d be single barrel Bourbon on ice.

Chuck is on to something…  I toast a high ball to you Chuck.  I miss you buddy.
