spread the love around

it’s the underlying principle behind my excitement over our idea to put up our own speed-dating service, marnie and i.  instead of wallowing in the bleakness of our own lovelives, why not try to channel that energy into something positive?  if it is not working for us, then why not try to help others get their own lovelives kicking off? 
 
but when government came up with its own speed-dating gimik, i was a bit disappointed that someone else had beaten me to the idea. 
 
but the principle is still there.  and if forces of nature allow for it, then maybe tonight i’ll get a glimpse of whether i have what it takes to play cupid for someone else.  *fingers crossed*

on mtv this morning they were doing a short blurb on bands with weird names.  the list included two bands which have since gone into oblivion land, but whose music i used to love so much.  toad the wet sprocket and hootie and the blowfish may be so 90s, but their music helped mold the decade in which i moved from 12 to 13 and onto 20 and back to 13 again.
 
in particular i remember TTWS’s last album, ‘coil’ and this song, ‘throw it all away’ which i love so much but seem to have forgotten about with the advent of vertical horizon, lifehouse, 3 doors down and the calling (yuck).
 
Take the dreams that should’ve died
The ones that kept you lying awake
When you should’ve been all right
And throw ’em all away “
 
ares is exhausted from all the downloading i’m doing now. i swear my pc is on hte verge of a collapse.

how can you not love this man and his music?
 
“I know that the spades are the swords of a soldier
I know that the clubs are weapons of war
I know that diamonds mean money for this art
But that?s not the
shape of my heart…”
 
the shape of my heart right now is a boondock. if plans pan out, i will be climbing my first peak by the 20th.

get back to work, you jerkalam mo vince, minsan talaga, mga linya mo bulok.
