Taking The Jump:Music Video Friday 3

"Beauty isn't in the eye of the beholder;I've checked.There's nothing in there but veins and goo."
-Stephen Colbert.

I just found out two of my songs off my current playlist actually deal with suicide.Who da thunk it?The videos are so very different...

Anyway,Seether are a South African band(imagine that!) who have found international success with their own blend of modern rock.Off the 2007 album Finding Beauty In Negative Spaces,this is "Rise Above This"

Fun fact:They were formerly known as Saron Gas.Have a lovely weekend:)

And On the Third Day....

Everybody likes to dance to a happy song
~Weezer,"Pork and Beans",2008

Just spent my entire weekend babysitting my computer which died last week.Two days,multiple system recoveries,two Windows installations and one hard drive format later,my computer is back online.Hallelujah!

In celebration,I present a Soulja Boy/MC Hammer medley by the good inmates of the CPDRC.Now if you'll excuse me,I'm off to listen to some happy music:)

Others Said It Better

Sherman made the terrible discovery that men make about their fathers sooner or later...that the man before him was not an aging father but a boy, a boy much like himself, a boy who grew up and had a child of his own and, as best he could, out of a sense of duty and, perhaps love, adopted a role called Being a Father so that his child would have something mythical and infinitely important: a Protector, who would keep a lid on all the chaotic and catastrophic possibilities of life.
~ Tom Wolfe, The Bonfire of the Vanities

That is the thankless position of the father in the family - the provider for all, and the enemy of all.
~ J. August Strindberg

The older I get,the more I sympathize.
Happy Father's Day Dad.

Where now the horse and the rider? Where is the horn that was blowing?
Where is the helm and the hauberk, and the bright hair flowing?
Where is the hand on the harpstring, and the red fire glowing?
Where is the spring and the harvest and the tall corn growing?
They have passed like rain on the mountain, like a wind in the meadow;
The days have gone down in the West behind the hills into shadow.
Who shall gather the smoke of the dead wood burning,
Or behold the flowing years from the Sea returning?

-Unknown Rohirrim poet,of Eorl the Young,
circa year 2600 of the Third Age.

RIP Ifeanyi
