Love’s musical posts… current!

So, as I slowly get these little posts about music and how it’s intertwined into my love life, I hadn’t had one happen in my life recently.  Basically since I started this blog I haven’t had a girl that I really like that had a song that would always make me think of her when I heard it.  My romantic life these past few years has been rocky to say the least.  Well things happen and sometimes we find someone that we weren’t looking for.  All the stars align and it’s beautiful.  But then one gets destroyed by the Death Star and everything gets crazy.  Or crazzy if you ask Crazy Dave.

I am currently crushing on a girl pretty majorly and somehow a song fell into place with me liking her.  The first line in Lorde’s song “Ribs” is “The drink you spilt all over me.”  Well,  One of the first times we hung out together with just the two of us I found one of those new Coke bottles with the “Share a Coke with…” label with her name on it.


I had it stuffed in my backpack as we wandered around downtown Fort Worth and while we were sitting down together at the Water Gardens I decided to open it up.  Guess what happened.  Whoosh!  Ker-splash!  Make your own sound effect!

Well, I hadn’t really listened to much of Lorde’s album, I’d pretty much switch it off after I heard “Royals” but I ended up listening to more of it on a whim.  “Ribs” made me think of the innocence that our first few days together was like.  Holding hands as we walked around, just enjoying being together.  We had a first kiss that I’m probably going to remember forever and she has a smile that will always melt my heart.  What comes next I don’t know but I’m being very hopeful.  Anywho here’s the song that I hope I’ll be enjoying for years to come:


34 years ago Led Zeppelin did this to me.

August 15, 1979 an album was released.  Wrapped in a brown paper cover with a stamp on the front it became my favorite album of all time a good 16 years later.  I still own it on vinyl, cassette, CD, and somewhere in a box here or at my parent’s house 8-Track.  It’s Led Zeppelin’s In Through the Out Door.


Now, I’ve already talked about Fool in the Rain on this blog Continue reading

And of course a song from my favorite album of all time.


Spanish again!

I was digging through my random picture files on my computer and I found this:


Of course the whole Hulk motif is why I saved it but as I looked closer I was reminded of my high school graduation party.  Continue reading

I can’t find the right photo…

So here’s a picture of my friend Jordan Christensen and somebody’s baby.


Jordan was the drummer for Crazy Dave’s Slightly Used Porn.  We would play parks in the middle of the day.

That's him back there.  Wave hi.  Soccer moms were angry.

We had issues.

Then 9-11 changed everything.  Actually it was the manager of the U-Haul place that changed.  The new one kicked us out.  Our career was over.  The End.

More Acts of Vengeance…

Marvel’s magical cross-title story line from the late ’80s to the early ’90s has a place in my heart.  Mainly because it was the first story line that I was actively following several titles at the time.  Rereading these titles has made me scared. 


Not really scared, but I am picking up on a lot more things that I missed in my early teens.  Like Hercules singing along with his Walkman:

Yeah, Thor had to leave because Herc sucks as a singer.

Yeah, Thor had to leave because Herc sucks as a singer.  Ooh!  They have the new issues of ALF!

Yes Hercules is singing this song:

On this machine:

And Thor isn’t Donald Blake!
