i’m gonna just throw up all my thoughts on this post.

academy awards – well directed. great choice in host, it’s been a while since there was an entertainer as a host as opposed to a comedian even though conan o’brien could host the heck out of it without having any lines scripted. i like that they themed each catergory and set the stage to correlate which takes production and money. there was time spent and i appreciate that. i hope people DO notice that and appreciate it as well. i like to focus on the production as it’s usually forgotten. also it’s ridiculously fun to see the energy that comes from the slumdog millionaire entourage because it was unexpected and it’s greatly humbled by them. so any award they take home was one they never thought they would take. sometimes it shows things are just organic. you can’t make it happen, it just does.  latika!

i wanna go snowboarding one more time this season. :(

education – i wish i surrounded by more people that want to share things that they’ve learned. it’s gotten to the point where sometimes it seems uncool to share random things you know. i like when people teach me things because it makes me feel a little brighter. also it makes me feel important because i feel as if i’m worthy of their time to take a moment to share that bit with me. it’s inspiritng and motivating. never stop learning. i need to stop being lazy and get my brain cells working.

recreation – man i miss playing ball now. sure, i run whenever i can but i’m getting burnt out a bit as there’s not much interaction unless you run with a friend…then i feel that if i can’t keep up, i’m just holding them back. yeah, it’s a confidence thing. nevertheless, i miss playing ball cuz i’m so used to just running in a straight line, i’m missing all the other muscles involved when you’re playing D on your opponent or changes in direction in a moment’s notice. so if anyone wants to just play whatevz, i’m gonna push myself to just go and do that.

nightlife – it used to be fun but it can get old when you know what’s expected and sure enough, what you expected is what happens. it’s good to see people but i just wonder how come no one just meets up for dinner to hang out or do random events as opposed to “we’ll just meet you guys up later if ya’ll go out.” it’s almost like we can only keep a conversation going if we’ve had a couple drinks. you’re in good company if you can get through a dinner without it feeling awkward.

music – kings of leon

Only by the Night

i’ve never really listen to much rock.  alternative, yes.  blues, yes.  punk, yes.  but rock, i think this group falls under that category.  if you listen to it’s style, it fits in that genre and i deem it to fall into rock.  i like that the album starts off with this type of energy that makes you want to feel it out.  first of all, when an artist uses abstract image as their cover it shows they have more of a meaning to what they produce and it’s however you interpret it as, so give it a listen.  they are huge in the UK but funny that they are a band straight out of tennessee – funny how this world works.  then again, that’s how *nsync got big too.

weekend playlist:
kings of leon – use somebody
lily allen – the fear
the prodigy – omen
brian mcknight – anytime (the beat building up to the first verse is just sick all by itself)
hot hot heat – goodnight goodnight
stereophonics – local boy in the photograph
jamie foxx – slow
coldplay – lovers in japan

ok, i’m blank now.  bbc radio 1 is all win.

UK’s rihanna – alicia dixon = overplayed.

academy awards – werd.

education – I learn something new everyday. but watch out. it’s like asking someone the time but them telling you how to build a clock. and that happens nearly everytime I ask a question.

recreation – you mean dance =(

nightlife – short trip to SA for thursday dinner

music – haven’t heard king of leon yet. not a fan of rock music either. can’t get into it.

btw, I’ve quickly realized snowboarding = $$$
