Who's On This Geek's Playlist? - June 2012

Photo taken during my first trip to Boston
with friends this past month. (Proof of my
life outside of the internet.)
Ok, so I have been SUPER lazy about making any entries for this blog. Seems I actually have a life offline (Who knew? haha), so other than filling my Tumblr blog's queue once or twice a week, I haven't contributed much online lately.

During my time away from my computer, I managed to finish the book I have been reading for the past 4 or so months (R. A. Salvatore's The Ghost King), went to Boston for the first time ever (where I defeated my fear of escalators!), and started playing bass guitar again (just a bit... but yay!).

I also started going though and listening to my collection of CDs, which is part of the reason I am FINALLY back to writing for this blog.

So who's on my playlist right now?

Answer: Ben Folds!

Ok, anyone that knows me is probably saying, "Shantelle, he is ALWAYS on your playlists!"

And yes, that is very true. I don't think I have had a playlist that hasn't included at least one Ben Folds song (with or without the Five).

However, the sole reason I am mentioning him now is that I made the random decision last week to listen to his CD Rockin the Suburbs (2001), and I've been listening to random songs from it every day since.

Here are a couple songs from the album. Enjoy!
Hope you enjoyed the music!

Questions and comments are always welcome, read, and replied to...

So go ahead and leave me something! (Please?)

And as always...

Thanks for reading! (^_^)

Just a Random Thought

I haven't posted in a while... mostly because I was having an intense case of blog-writers block. So here is my random thought for the day:

The way I see it, I have two brains.

One brain is a complete idiot, and is responsible for things like:
  • Making me almost pull food out of the oven with no oven mitts.
  • Forcing me to walk into a room 5-6 times before I remember why I was in there in the first place.
  • Erasing a person’s name from my memory 5 seconds after they introduce themselves.
The other brain is highly intelligent. Its contents vary from person to person, but it’s there.

Sadly, the idiot brain is a control freak and is ALWAYS fighting for command of my thoughts and actions.

My goal in life?

Stamp out the idiot brain.

Thanks for reading my random thought of the day, haha! (^_^)"Cross-section Human B...$16.98 Wayfair
