Moon Taxi – All Day All Night (McDonald’s Commercial)


All day and all night
My eyes are open
All day and all night
I’ve been going
All day and all night
We stay up, we stay on
All day and all night, ooh yeah

Well I don’t know just where I’ve been
Same clothes on my back again
And if you see me in the morning
You’re bound to see me hanging by a thread

One more time before I go
One more night before I know
And if you see me in the evening
You’re bound to see me out of my head

All day and all night
Eyes are open
All day and all night
Keep me going
All day and all night
We stay up, we stay on
All day and all night

Whisper words into my ear
Tell me what I need to hear
But I don’t close my eyes without you
Even if I have to make it one more day

I never know when to say when
The sun is setting once again
And underneath the stars we have until the morning comes
And washes us away

Mumford & Sons – Ditmas + Lyrics

And in time
As one reminds the other of the past
A life lived much too fast to hold onto
How am I losing you?

A broken house
Another dry month waiting for the rain
And I had been resisting this decay
I thought you’d do the same

But this is all I ever was
And this is all you came across those years ago
Now you go too far
Don’t tell me that I’ve changed because that’s not the truth
And now I’m losing you

Fragile sound
The world outside just watches as we crawl
Crawl towards a life of fragile lines
And wasted time

And so I cry
As I hold you for the last time in this life
This life I tried so hard to give to you
What would you have me do?

Where I used to end was where you start
You were the only one
And now I see your eyes move too fast
You were the only one

Careful hands
And wandering without that much to say
Your words are empty as the bed we made
Is there another way?
Oh love, is there another way?

And now I’m losing you

Zac Brown Band – Bittersweet + Lyrics

Can’t tell where the sky begins
And the water ends
No clouds to hide the sun
Waves playing me
A symphony upon the sand
As I lay drifting on the ocean
With this bottle in my hand

Sat down on the boardwalk
For a little while
Your memory, my company
Something ’bout this place
Had a way to make you smile
You always loved this island breeze

The wind whistling ‘cross my bottle
Still can’t blow away the sorrow
That tomorrow you won’t be here with me
So I raise it up and toast
The day we met and won’t forget
The way you love me
The amazing way you love me

It’s bittersweet, you see
You’re not here but I can feel you
Every memory is on the tip of my tongue
Close my eyes, see your face
Hold on tight to yesterday
Praying when I wake, it was just a dream
It’s bittersweet

Doctor said there’s nothing we can do
Took my hand, said take me home
To the only place with half a chance
To take the pain away
Make me feel alive before I go

You said life is only borrowed
So let’s wash away our sorrow
That tomorrow I won’t be here with you
Go and live your life with no regrets
And don’t forget how much I love you
I love you

It’s bittersweet, you see
You’re not here but I can feel you
Every memory is on the tip of my tongue
Close my eyes, see your face
Hold on tight to yesterday
Praying when I wake, it was just a dream
It’s bittersweet

I brought you back just like you wanted
So you don’t ever have to leave
When I poured you ‘cross the southern sky
I couldn’t help but to cry
I know you finally got your wings

Bitter, bittersweet
Bittersweet, oh

The wind whistling ‘cross my bottle
Still can’t blow away the sorrow
That tomorrow you won’t be here with me
So raise it up and toast the day we met
I won’t forget the way you love me
The amazing way you love me
It’s bittersweet

6 New Yelp Badges: Barfly, Carrot Top, Footloose, Meathead, Unleashed and Happy Hour Power

* BARFLY – easiest of the new ones to obtain: need 4 check-in at bars, lounges and/or pubs over two separate days – anytime of the day. Not quite sure how this differs from SOUSED (unless it’s because it requires more than just one day since SOUSED in more of a pub-crawl on one night). (2672 yelpers “unlocked” and counting)

* CARROT TOP – 3 separate check-ins at 3 separate vegetarian establishments on 3 separate days. (106 yelpers “unlocked” and counting)

* FOOTLOOSE – 3 separate check-ins at 3 separate Dance Clubs over at least 2 days. It has to be a Dance Club too. I have a check-in at the Ballroom Dance Studio where I do some dance lessons and that check-in was in between the Dance Club check-ins, but it did not count towards this badge (85 yelpers “unlocked” and counting)

* MEATHEAD – 3 separate check-ins at 3 separate Steak Houses over 3 days. However, hamburger places (ie. fast food), burger shacks, mini-burger trucks, even gourmet burger establishmentsetc. etc., do NOT apply. (179 yelpers and counting)

* UNLEASED – 3 separate check-ins on 3 separate days/nights at a Dog Park. It can be the SAME dog park all 3 nights too. I walk my two-pocket panthers after midnight (since there are usually no dogs around then) through the Glenbrook Dog Park. near my home. It has to be a Dog Park also. Not a regular park. Not a Dog Sitter or Dog-Walking service either. (63 yelpers “unlocked” and counting)

* HAPPY HOUR POWER – I was praying this had nothing to do with church meetings, and luckily I was right. It took 5 check-ins and 5 different establishments, over 4 separate days, between the hours of 5-7pm. [Maybe 8pm. And maybe if you push it, you can get it in 2 or 3 days. I don’t know.] (75 yelpers “unlocked” and counting).

SPECIAL NOTE:

Sometimes you get a TWO-fer. My check-in at “Badlands” (Sacramento) counted towards BOTH “Barfly” and “Footloose”. But not towards “Happy Hour Power” since my check in at Badlands was late at night. IF, however, my check had been before 7pm, I can’t help but wonder if I would have gotten a THREE-fer with the “Badlands” check-in.

It’s Not Right But It’s So Gay

GLEE – Full Performance of “Somebody That I Used To Know”

Now and then I think of when we were together
Like when you said you felt so happy you could die
Told myself that you were right for me
But felt so lonely in your company
But that was love and it’s an ache I still remember

You can get addicted to a certain kind of sadness
Like resignation to the end
Always the end
So when we found that we could not make sense
Well you said that we would still be friends
But I’ll admit that I was glad that it was over

But you didn’t have to cut me off
Make out like it never happened
And that we were nothing
And I don’t even need your love
But you treat me like a stranger
And that feels so rough
You didn’t have to stoop so low
Have your friends collect your records
And then change your number
I guess that I don’t need that though
Now you’re just somebody that I used to know

Now and then I think of all the times you screwed me over
But had me believing it was always something that I’d done
And I don’t wanna live that way
Reading into every word you say
You said that you could let it go
And I wouldn’t catch you hung up on somebody that you used to know…

But you didn’t have to cut me off
Make out like it never happened
And that we were nothing
And I don’t even need your love
But you treat me like a stranger
And that feels so rough
You didn’t have to stoop so low
Have your friends collect your records
And then change your number
I guess that I don’t need that though
Now you’re just somebody that I used to know

I used to know
That I used to know

Somebody…

You can’t just dump peanut sauce on top of a dish and call it Thai.

When I ask others what they think of when they think of Thai food, I commonly get responses involving peanut sauce (vegetables and pineapple with peanut sauce, noodles with peanut sauce, beef covered in peanut sauce, etc). I think it’s safe to say after a year of cooking Thai food that none of these are typical Thai dishes. I’m not even sure they’re Thai dishes at all, although I can certainly understand the temptation to smother anything and everything with this delicious sauce.

WHEN WILL THEY EVER FUCKING LEARN? If you have a chance to go to Thailand, don’t be surprised if you don’t see peanut sauce in your Pad Thai. Why? Cuz nobody eats  it that way, and they never will. It’s disgusting. There’s no peanut sauce in Pad Thai recipe ever! Only crush peanut. Got it? Also don’t try to be oriental by eating Pad Thai with chopsticks. USE FORK!

Also, don’t even think that you look cool by eating other Thai food with chopsticks. You’re making a fool of yourself. We have evolved! Fork and spoon (spoon mostly) have been used in Thailand for centuries now!

RIP Whitney Houston – My Love Is Your Love

My favorite Whitney Houston’s My Love Is Your Love.

If tomorrow is judgment day (Sing Mommy)
And I’m standing on the front line
And the Lord asks me what I did with my life
I will say I spent it with you

If I wake up in World War III
I see destruction and poverty
And I feel like I want to go home
It’s okay if you’re coming with me

‘Cause your love is my love
And my love is your love
It would take an eternity to break us
And the chains of Amistad couln’t hold us
‘Cause your love is my love
And my love is your love
It would take an eternity to break us
And the chains of Amistad couln’t hold us

If I lose my fame and fortune
And I’m homeless on the street
And I’m sleeping in Grand Central Station
It’s okay if you’re sleeping with me

As the years they pass us by
We stay young through each other’s eyes
And no matter how old we get
It’s okay as long as I got you baby

‘Cause your love is my love
And my love is your love
It would take an eternity to break us
And the chains of Amistad couln’t hold us
‘Cause your love is my love
And my love is your love
It would take an eternity to break us
And the chains of Amistad couln’t hold us

If I should die this very day
Don’t cry, ’cause on Earth we weren’t meant to stay
And no matter what the people say
I’ll be waiting for you after the judgment day

‘Cause your love is my love
And my love is your love
It would take an eternity to break us
And the chains of Amistad couln’t hold us
‘Cause your love is my love
And my love is your love
It would take an eternity to break us
And the chains of Amistad couln’t hold us
