Okay so I know it's not really Monday. That's how it goes here at Technicolor Typecast though! Monday was 2 days ago, and I'm still not ready for it. Ah well, here goes anyway.
Back in my heyday, I was quite the audiophile. I used to read (and I mean read thoroughly) a handful of music magazines and listen intently to songs for hours a day on a daily basis. So I have been loving these music blogs I keep running into by you guys. It's got me a bit nostalgic, and I'm jelly. I wanna have a music blog too, *hmph.*
I wanted to make my first Music Monday post about the album Plastic Beach by The Gorillaz. It's one of my favorite albums. I was going to mention my trip to the Unemployment Office. It was quite an experience.
But I'm just not feeling that today. I'm feeling Mos Def's Umi Says.
I've been in a funk for the last day or two. Frustrated with being such a completionist at life. I only feel like I do things right if I do them like they are the most important thing ever. Unfortunately it's actually physically impossible to do that with 1,436 things. That's got me bummed.
I love songs with lyrics like this one. They are just so real and refreshing. I don't really like fluff or depressing stuff anymore. Everything I do, I want to make myself and the world better. That includes listening to music. So it's been hard to listen to music with lyrics for the past few years. You really have to dig for positive influences. But wow, once you do the work, there are so many songs with beautiful lyrics.
Shine your light on the world.... Shine your light for the world to see...
