ne-yo-2017

Tis the weekend!

Back on my grind, so I pulled from my favorites.

I was never the biggest Ne Yo fan, but have to give credit where it’s due.  This is one of the better covers of one of my favorite MJ songs.

Have a good one folks.

Humpday for most of you, the end of the work week for me.

Heading to a homie’s wedding, so this feels like a perfect song to go out on.

Have a good one folks.  See you Sunday.

Spinning a lot of plates right now; let me get this music in while I’m thinking about it.

Wouldn’t think a sample of ‘Lady In My Life’ would work so well, especially when I didn’t recognize it when this first came out.   But there you go…

Enjoy!

Looking out
Across the nighttime
The city winks a sleepless eye
Hear her voice
Shake my window
Sweet seducing sighs

Get me out
Into the nighttime
Four walls won’t hold me tonight
If this town
Is just an apple
Then let me take a bite

If they say,
Why, why, tell ’em that it’s human nature
Why, why, does he do it that way
If they say,
Why, why, tell ’em that it’s human nature
Why, why does he do me that way

Reaching out
To touch a stranger
Electric eyes are everywhere
See that girl
She knows I’m watching
She likes the way I stare

If they say,
Why, why, tell ’em that it’s human nature
Why, why, does he do me that way
If they say,
Why, why, tell ’em that it’s human nature
Why, why does he do me that way

I like livin’ this way
I like lovin’ this way

Why why
(That way) Why why

Looking out
Across the morning
Where the city’s heart begins to beat
Reaching out
I touch her shoulder
I’m dreaming of the street

If they say,
Why, why, tell ’em that it’s human nature
Why, why, does he do me that way
If they say,
Why, why, ooo tell ’em
Why, why does he do me that way
If they say why, why, cha cha cha cha cha cha
Why does he do me that way
If they say why, why, why, ooo tell ’em
Why does he do me that way
If they say why, ooo tell ’em
Why does he do me that way
If they say why, da da da da da da da da
Why does he do my that way, I like living this way
Why, oh why, why, why

I came to the realization a few days ago that most likely for the rest of my life, a major aspect of my private life will no longer be private.  And in the short term it’s shaping national security for the worst.

If that’s the way it is, fine.  But I’m going to be a lot more active in controlling the narrative.  So as much as I like entertaining purely for entertainment’s sake, I’ve started screenwriting again very very specifically to my voice.

Got in the car this morning and this was first song that came through the jazz station.

Perfect sign.

Enjoy!

I retweeted and what not when the news came across my various timelines, but the man who implictly named one of my shorts deserves a more proper tribute.

Rest In Peace, Rod Temperton.  Your lyrics and contribution will live on.

Enjoy!

 

‘Red Bird’

A few of my talented Jayhawk friends who helped me make ‘Lady In My Life’ a few years back need your help in bringing their next vision to the screen.

The name of the web series is ‘Red Bird’, and it’s being written and directed by Misti Boland.  She can explain her vision better than I, so here’s the link to the website with all the info you need.  There’s only a few hours left so help if you can!

The numbers tell me this is post 1,000 on this site.  ONE THOUSAND! So now is as good of a time as any to say thank you.  Whether you come here daily, weekly, or whenever the mood strikes. Whether you come for the music or the politics. Whether you come to hear my opinions on other people’s projects or want to know more about when I have something out there to promote.  Whether you come to see me be a complete nut or be deeply spiritual and introspective.

I enjoy it, I enjoy all of it.  And I appreciate all of you.  Some I’ve known since teenage years, a few who knew me before there was really a ‘me’ crawling around.  A few new-ish friends who quickly become a type of family.  Some of you we’ve gone on separate ways and (one of the better things about the interwebs) we find as each other as adults and build relationships we weren’t ready for when we first met.  Some of you motivate me more than you know, and I sense sometimes the feeling is mutual.  And some of you I’ll probably never meet ‘in real life’ and this is our ‘thing’.  Such is life these days.

Anyway, so much has happened, just skimming over the first thousand.  What will happen by the time I get to 2K?  I’m looking forward to it.

Cheers to you all.  Ladies and Gentlemen, once again, the Carleton Singing Knights!
