Tha Face

You know how much chain e-mails and freaky pictures freak me out. When I saw this, I picture, I was freaky out.

The Face

Right Side Of Your Brain – This is So Cool!
An eye, brain trick. You will enjoy this if you are using the right side of your brain.
Stare at this picuture carefully and you will see this man turn his face.
Share this with your friends if you saw him turn his head.

Shine by Collective Soul

Here is another song that when I hear the first view seconds of it I have to change it. “Shine” (1993) by Collective Soul.

 

 

Shine” is a song by the American post-grunge band Collective Soul. It served as the lead single from their 1993 debut album Hints, Allegations, and Things Left Unsaid. “Shine” would remain the band’s most well known song and a hallmark of 1990s alternative rock. (from Wikipedia.com)

I really can’t think of one specific reason I dislike this song so much, but I do. The beginning of the song, irratates me. The middle of the song too. And the end of the song can’t come fast enough. The sound of the lead singer’s voice… URRG!!

I was so happy that I was able to copy the embedded link from YouTube before the video started playing. Because once that music earwig gets in my head, especially a song I don’t like, it’s there all day!

Here are the lyrics to the song, if you feel the need to sing along.

“Shine” by Collective Soul

Give me a word – give me a sign
Show me where to look – tell me what will I find? (What will I find?)
Lay me on the ground and fly me in the sky
Show me where to look – tell me what will I find? (What will I find?)

Oh – Heaven, let your light shine down
Oh – Heaven, let your light shine down
Oh – Heaven, let your light shine down
Oh – Heaven, let your light shine down

Love is in the water – love is in the air
Show me where to look – tell me will love be there? (Will love be there?)
Teach me how to speak – teach me how to share
Teach me where to go – tell me will love be there? (Will love be there?)

Oh – Heaven, let your light shine down
Oh – Heaven, let your light shine down
Oh – Heaven, let your light shine down
Oh – Heaven, let your light shine down

Give me a word – give me a sign
Show me where to look – tell me what will I find? (What will I find?)
Lay me on the ground and fly me in the sky
Show me where to look – tell me what will I find? (What will I find?)

Oh – Heaven, let your light shine down
Oh – Heaven, let your light shine down
Oh – Heaven, let your light shine down
Oh – Heaven, let your light shine down

I’m gonna let it shine – I’m gonna let it shine
Heaven, let your light shine on me
Oh, yeah
Heaven, let your light shine on me

Shine
Shine on me, yeah
Shine
Come on and shine

DWTS (U.S. Season 16) — Week 2

DWTS Season 16

Dancing with the Stars (Season 16)

Here is my 2-cents on tonight’s show.

Well my Early -Bird pick of Dorothy Hamill and Tristan MacManus didn’t do to well last night. She was injured and couldn’t really get into the dance. I hope that she will at least make it to next week to try again.

I’m still boycotting Mark Ballas and Derek Hough just because I don’t like them. Sorry Aly Raisman and Kellie Pickler, I have no rhythm to my reasons!

So this week here are my picks:

Best Pair(s) — Zendaya Coleman and Valentin Chmerkovskiy

Zendaya Coleman and Valentin Chmerkovskiy - 2

Zendaya did make a hinky comment about age just being a number. So, she’s 16 years old and she views the world differently than the older stars. As along as she can dance like she does, that’s all that matters. And other comments I saw about her were that it’s not fair she is on the show because she is a hip-hop dancer. So, I’m sure the moves she knows how to so are totally different than the ballroom dances she is learning. Lighten up people!!

I’m also like this version of Val Chmerkovshiy. He’s not doing Rated-R dance moves like he sis last season with Kelly Monaco.

Worst Pair(s) — D.L. Hughley and Cheryl Burke

D.L. Hughley and Cheryl Burke - 2

Sorry, someone needs to be the first to be sent home. D.L. Hughley is funny, but a dance he is not.

OR

Wynonna Judd and Tony Dovolani

Wynonna Judd and Tony Dovolani - 2

Yeah, I just don’t think she will get any better.

OR

Lisa Vanderpump and Gleb Savchenko

Lisa Vanderpump and Gleb Savchenko - 2

As much as I want to see Gleb Savhenko more, I don’t think Lisa Vanderpump is going to get any better,

Best Song(s)

I’ll be watching tonight to see if any of my picks were right.

Bell Peppers

You learn something new everyday!

Did you know this about Bell Peppers?

Bell Peppers

Flip the bell peppers over to check their gender. The ones with four bumps are female and those with three bumps are male. The female peppers are full of seeds, but sweeter and better for eating raw and the males are better for cooking.

To read more about it: The difference between three bottomed bell peppers and four bottomed bell peppers.

I have really not pay attention to this before. But the next time I chop up some bell peppers, I’m going to take a look at how many bumps they have. Wait, that didn’t sound right??!!

You know what I mean.

From Me to You

I saw this on an old friend that I went to church with growing up Facebook page. It was on the card that they past out for his mother’s funereal.

I can’t remember ever reading or seeing this poem before. But when I read it, I felt a little calmer, a little bit more at ease.

So I am posting this for my family, friends, acquaintance and anyone who needs a little something to bring a smile, some peace or just a happy feeling.

I Said a Prayer for You Today

I said a prayer for you today
And know God must have heard.
I felt the answer in my heart
Although He spoke no word!

I didn’t ask for wealth or fame
(I knew you wouldn’t mind).
I asked him to send treasures
Of a far more lasting kind!

I asked that He be near you
At the start of each new day;
To grant you health and blessings
And friends to share your way!

I asked for happiness for you
In all things great and small.
But it was for His loving care
I prayed the most of all!

Song of the Week #2 — Born To Be Alive

This week’s Song of the Week is… “Born to Be Alive” (1979) by Patrick Hernandez.

Born To Be Alive

I have currently put this in my “Quick List” (list of songs that I don’t want to search for) playlist on my iPod.

Things I didn’t know about Patrick Hernandez:

Misheard Lyrics:

“Born To Be Alive”
Misheard Lyrics:
People ask me why I never find the place to stump and settle down down down
But I never wanted all the things that people need adjust to find their lies lies lies.
You see war born, born, born to be a lie.
Original Lyrics:
People ask me why I never find a place to stop and settle down down down
but I never wanted all the things that people need to justify their lives lives lives.
You see we’re born, born, born to be alive.

Song of the Week — I Wanna Get Next to You

For the longest time, the only song that I thought Rose Royce sand was “Car Wash” (1976.) I won’t even  mention that I thought Rose Royce was a person.. but I digress.

Rose Royce

One of Rose Royce songs that I love is “I Wanna Get Next to You” (1977.)

 

 

The song talks about how a narrator pleads love for a beautiful woman, except that the young woman is unkind, and does not understand his affection for her, as he wastes his own money calling her, but she does not respond, regardless, he still wants to “get next” to her. — From Wikipedia

There is just something about this song that makes you want to sway with your partner at a high school dance. I would have loved to see the high school dances with music from the 60’s and 70’s playing. The sounds, the clothes, the vibe must have been far out!

While I have been writing this post, I have listened to the song five or six times and singing along with the lyrics. Only if I have my bottle of Tickle deorderant to sing into!

I Wanna Get Next to You
by Rose Royce

I Wanna Get Next to You by Rose Royce
Sittin’ here in this chair waitin’ on you
Ah baby, to see things my way
But not a word do you say
You won’t even look my way
Boy, I’m spending my dimes, wasting
My time, talking till I’m black and blue
Ah, can’t you see I wanna get next to you

Dreams of you and I go sailing by
Whenever your eyes meet mine
(You’re so fine)
And boy you make me feel so insecure
You’re so beautiful and pure,
Why must you be unkind
(And tell me I’m not your kind, blowin my mind)
Boy, my, my money is low and I know
That I can’t take you to the
Fancy places you might wanna go
Still I wanna get next to you
I wanna get next to you

Boy, you can bend me, shake me, make me
Whatever it takes to please you
I’m willing to do
‘Cause you’re my dream come true
And I wanna get next to you

I wanna get next to you
I wanna make you mine (for all the time)
I wanna get next to you
I promise I’ll never make you blue
I wanna get next to you
I wanna get next to you
