Look What I Dug Up?
This is one of the weirdest songs of all time. I came across it on the Youtube. Then I remembered watching this on Soul Train when I was very young.
Sometimes you just gotta look at life, and just say, "hey"!
This is one of the weirdest songs of all time. I came across it on the Youtube. Then I remembered watching this on Soul Train when I was very young.
This morning started out really good. I had to meet with a couple of guys about youth ministry over at Starbucks. So, I woke up early, took a shower, and got ready for my day. After all that, I went for my half mile walk to my bus stop. At the stop, there was this family; a mom, a dad, their son, and their two little girls. I don't know what happened, but all of the kids just started screaming. A couple of minutes later I was starting to go INSANE!!!!
Okay, so I've been off of Facebook now for six glorious days. They say that when you quit something, it's always hard the first week. Whoever they are, I want to punch them in the face. Only because they're right.
As some of you know, I have made the choice to leave the Facebook nation for a while. You may ask why. Here is the answer.
First off, I must apologize. I haven't blogged in a few months because I forgot which email address I used. I also forgot my password. Now everything is back to normal. Time to blog it up.
Okay, so a while ago I put up a post wondering who the band/artist of the 2000s was. To recap, a lot of people think that Elvis was the artist of the 1950s. The Beatles was the band of the 1960s. Led Zeppelin was the band of the 1970s. U2 was the band of the 1980s and Nirvana was the band of the 1990s. Now again, who would you say was the band of the 2000s.
It's been a month already. Wow, time flies when you're shoveling snow. Here's what's going on. I normally start my day roughly at 5:45am. I get ready and leave the house at about 6:30am. Then I'm headed off to the bus stop. The bus leaves at 7:00am and it gets about 5 degrees that early in the morning. I arrive at work at 7:30am and take a bit of a nap. At 8:00am, I start work. It's a good time. Then I leave at 5:00pm.
This is a first in a series that I'm dubbing, "The Utah Chronicles". You see a couple of months ago I got offered a job in Park City, Utah. This job is working at the number one ski resort in all of North America, (as chosen by the readers of Ski magazine), Deer Valley. This place is so "choice". It's the resort where all of the top celebrities go skiing. No joke.
So, some of you know this, others don't. I just really haven't got a chance to tell you. On November 23, I will start my new job working in the ski rental shop at the Deer Valley Ski Resort in Park City Utah.
In August, my roommate, Erick and I got into a scuffle. One of the things that happened was that when I first moved in, it was going to only be for six months. Those six months have turned into three years. In those three years, I have not really kept up my end of the bargain.
Welcome to a new segment on The Lunaverse called, "Internet Clip of the Week". In this edition, President Obama calls Kanye West a jackass. Take a listen.
So check this out. Since the beginning of August, I have decided that I'm going to start changing my life for the better. I'm gonna do this mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
Here's a jewel from 1998. I remember hating this song when it first came out. It was WAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYY to overplayed for a couple of years. Now that it's been eleven years. It's like most song that get overplayed when they first come out, first you don't want to hear it, then it becomes okay to listen to.
If you go into Albertsons, you may or may not notice that we have a wide range of music. I guess that's like most stores. I'll give you an example of what happened yesterday. I heard Guns N Roses followed by James Ingram, James Taylor, Green Day, The Ramones, Green Day, Whitney Houston, Joan Jett, Lenny Kravitz, 4 Non Blondes, Poison, Mariah Carey, and Willie Nelson (I get bored at work, so I keep track of the songs they play). Some songs they play are awesome, some you just love to hate. Then there are songs that just seem to grow on you. No matter how much you may hate the song, if you hear it enough times, you may even like it.
Something crazy happened this summer. I came to the realization that I really don't listen to as much new music as I should. I've had conversations with my friend Nathan about new music. We'd say that we wouldn't stop listening to new music. Nathan hasn't, but I have. It happened by accident. Mainly because my radio broke. I guess I could listen to internet radio.
I don't even remember the last time I blogged. I wanna say May or June. Good news, I'm back and I'm here to attack. I really don't have anything good to report, but don't worry kids, I'll have something good posted pretty soon.
I have a new favorite show. I don't care if I'm not in the key demographic (1-5 years old). I was at my friend, Jordan's house and we were having a serious conversation about what God is doing in our lives. I just happend to turn my head for a second and saw his little boy dancing to this...
So check this out. A week before Johnny Cash died, I listened to his music a everyday. The same thing happened very recently when I found my Bad CD and started listening to Michael Jackson again. The past couple of days I've been getting in touch again with Tom Petty's music. Does this mean he's going to die too? Oh man, I sure hope not. Maybe I should start listening to The Jonas Brothers More.
In the summer of 1998, my uncle Joe moved in with us. He just got a divorce and he didn't have a place to live. My parents told him that he could live with us for a while. A few months later he and my dad got into a fight about the rules of the house. My dad basically said that if you don't like it, you can leave. So my uncle left. He left, but didn't really tell anybody where he was going. He didn't even tell his kids.
When I first got my blog, I'd blog everyday. I would blog even if nothing interesting happened to me that day. Sometimes, I'd tell a story or post something I saw on the internet just so I kept the blog busy. Nowadays, I really don't blog that much anymore. I don't even remember the last time I read anybody else's blog. I kind of miss it. I'm only blogging now to stay off of anybody's "Dead Friend's" list. I hope to get back in the swing of things soon. 'Til then, Peace, I'm outta here.
I need a new job. I have certificates, but everywhere I've looked, they want experience. How can I get experience if nobody will hire me? I have resorted to this. If anybody out there needs a secretary, or an office worker, or if you know somebody who needs one, Here's my qualifications.
I'm Sorry I haven't blogged in a while. Every time I would go to blog, I would always have something negative to say about life, and it would seem that I would want you to feel sorry for me. I really don't want that. Here's what's going on with my life. Don't feel sorry for me, instead keep me in prayer.
About a year and a half ago, I created my first Ooongatz movie and posted it on Youtube. A lot of people loved the first video. It was called, "The Glorious Picnic". I went on Youtube the other day to show a friend who had never seen the movie. As I went on, we could not watch it. Due to copyright laws, Youtube took out the audio track. The worst part was that I deleted the actual movie off of my computer, thinking that it's on Youtube now and I can clean up space on my computer. Man was I wrong!
So the other day I put on Star Wars. I was also online, and I was chatting with someone. He wanted to know what I was doing. I told him that I was watching Star Wars. He asked which one. I said, "Star Wars". He wanted to know which episode. I just went by instinct and said, "oh, the first one". "Episode 1", he answered. So I was thinking, "that's right, I forgot that George Lucas messed up one of the coolest movie series of all time and gave all of his movies extremely long titles". I guess what I was supposed to say was Star Wars - Episode 4: A New Hope.
Hey computer geeks, I'm trying to sell my computer, but I don't know how much I can get for it. I hope to get more than $150.00 for it, but I don't want to sell myself short. I can't find any similar items on ebay or craigslist.
So check this out, I was cleaning up my room, and I came across my dad's band's record. Since I don't have a record player, I thought maybe I would get lucky on the internet and typed it in. It was released by Polydor Records. Tower of Power, Pancho Sanchez, and Elton John's bassist played on it, so it was worth a shot.
Years ago on Youtube, a boy named Chris told the world to leave Britney alone. Now a twenty year-old man named Chris wants you to leave Octomom alone. Sure, she's a whackjob who now has 14 kids, but tonight I turned on the TV and saw a mob of people in front of her house as she brought home two of her new children. I mean hey, She's been though a lot the past weeks and all she wanted to do was to bring her babies home. Leave Octomom alone!
Sometimes when I blog, It's something silly, or I have a countdown that nobody pays attention to. Once in a while I will write about something serious. I am not afraid to write what is on my mind. This is something I've been wanting to write about for a while.
Well this is it. This isn't just the last movie and song of the 90s, but it's the last movie and song of my little series. So here's a Mel Gibson movie that he did in the nineties that didn't have the words Lethal or Weapon in the title.
Wow, I can't believe I didn't post this video yet. Joe Pesci would probably stab me with his mother's knife if I didn't put this video up.
Oooh here's a good one, usually....
Here it is my 200th post, a movie that is most worthy of being my 200th post, Rushmore.
Well, sorry for the two day delay. Last night was the Academy Awards and Slumdog Millionare won, but fourteen years ago, a movie that actually deserved the award won...(Ooooh everybdy hates me now!)
After this post I am taking a break for Saturday and Sunday. I will be in Big Bear, and I am not taking my computer with me. That being said, it's time for the nineties movie and song of the day.
The funny thing about this trailer says that it's a Walt Disney picture, but Touchstone Pictures released it. I know that Disney owns Touchstone. I just wonder if at the last minute Disney decided to take their name off of it. Also, Does anybody else love this movie?
Quite possibly the best movie with Tara Reid, Aimee Mann, and Flea...
Here we are the beginning of the end. This is the last series of movies and songs of the day. This movie takes place in the 70s and has an all-star cast of then unknown actors.
Why can't Tom Hanks make movies like this anymore?
Since it is Sunday, I thought the best movie trailer to show would be a movie about two brothers who are on a mission from God.
Well since it is Valentine's Day...
Does Barry Manilow know that you raid his wardrobe?
Before Christian Slater and Heath Ledger kicked butt in The Dark Knight, Micheal Keaton and Jack Nicholson did it first...
This one time, Steven Spielberg and George Lucas had a baby and named him Indiana Jones
Before we get to the movie and song, I wanted to share with you something that happened recently on the news. It features everybody's favorite fawcett and fixture guy in the entire world.....
The movie of the day stars a young Corey Feldman and surprisingly Josh Brolin.
This is it the final 70s movie and song of the day. The movie is brought to you in glorious black and white.
This week marks the tenth anniversary of my dad's passing. To honor him, I have chosen his favorite movie of the seventies.
Usually I when I do this I find a trailer. This time is different. Here's a scene from the movie instead.
The movie stars Al Pacino as a guy who just wants to rob a bank.
You knew that sooner or later I would pick this movie as the movie of the day.
The movie of the day is about a shark that likes to eat people.
Here we go, Seven Days Of The Seventies begins with my favorite Jack Nicholson movie.
The movie and song go hand in hand.
The movie is a rather "Odd" One.
I decided I was gonna make this more interesting. You now get to guess what movies and songs I am choosing. Are you ready?
Movie - Dr. Strangelove or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb
The Movie - Butch Cassidy And The Sundance Kid
I'm starting this new thing called, Six Days of the Sixties. It will be followed by Seven Days of the Seventies , Eight Days of the Eighties and so on and so on.
Many people have commented on a recent Facebook status about me saying that I had the worst experience at El Taco ever. It was more of a weird day than a bad one.
On Conan O'Brien, he does this bit called, "If They Mated". If you are not familiar with this, he gets pictures of two celebrities (usually a hot Hollywood couple) and mixes their pictures up and a picture comes out of what their baby would look like.
A few years ago, I was reading about this boy who had a tumor. It was pretty massive and the doctor told him that he didn't have that much time left. His parents had practiced meditation, they taught him to do it as well.
*DISCLAIMER* Before you read this blog, you need to read my previous blog entitled, "There's Something Out There, I Can't Resist".
The year was 1985. Wait a minute, I think it was 1986. It could have been 1987. I really don't think it was 1988. Whatever, I don't feel like looking it up right now. I get lazy. Let's just say I was either five or six when the song, "These Dreams", by Heart was a big hit.
Last night in a bible study we talked about joy. Although that was not the focus on the study. To be honest with you, I don't remember at all what the study was about. Sorry. I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I lost track of what I'm trying to say.
Sorry I haven't blogged in a while. I just don't have anything interesting to report on. I hope this video will make up for it
Wow, 2008 will be over in just a few hours, and tomorrow will start the last decade of the 2000s. It has been a crazy year (for me anyway). Let's see, I'm trying to figure out what happened this year.
Usually in December, little white objects falling from the sky isn't a big deal, especially if you live in an area where it snows. In Downey, a more disgusting white thing falls from the sky. I wish it was snow, but it's not. It's bird poo.
So on a previous blog, I told you guys how I didn't have any sound on my computer. I've been trying to figure out what the problem was for the past couple of days. Then a few minutes ago I was talking to my good friend Paddy online and Paddy just told me to update the driver. So I did and it worked. Thank you, Paddy. Who's my buddy?
So check this out. There is no sound coming from my laptop. I've troubleshooted and troubleshooted, I just don't know what to do. I've looked in the properties, and everything seems to be working fine. Also, it is not on mute. So computer geeks, can you help me out?
So I was watching, "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation" last night. There was this one scene that I never really focused on until last night. You know the one. You don't? Let me refresh your memory.
I know, I know, on a prior post I said how presents aren't important around Christmastime, but it is nice to get something for Christmas. I'm not gonna lie to you. So here's my list of things that would be nice to get for Christmas.
So check this out. I am currently watching, "The View", and Meryl Streep and Amy Adams are on promoting their new movie, "Doubt". I don't know why, but Ijust realized RIGHT NOW that Meryl Streep has a strange name. I mean who would name their kid, Meryl? I don't think that when I have a daughter, I am going to name her Meryl. I'm done venting. Plus I have a weird crush on her.
So check this out. Today as I went into Best Buy, I heard this little kid around the age of five shout out, "Mommy Mommy, Look David Bowie David Bowie, Mommy Bowie"! The kid was pointing at my t-shirt with David Bowie on it. It was quite possibly the highlight of my day, and the most awesome thing ever.
So I got to thinking about Christmas movies the other day. Then a question popped into my fragile little mind. What is the best Christmas movie of our generation. My grandparents had "It's a Wonderful Life". My parents had "White Christmas". For me, it's "A Christmas Story". If you are younger than me, maybe it's, "Home Alone".
A few years ago I walked into Rite-Aid and saw a "missing" poster with an old childhood friend of mine named Vince Humphries. When I saw the poster I was in shock that he was missing. A few days had passed and the poster was gone. Part of me thought he was dead. The other part thought he was safe.
It's that time of year again. That's right all you lucky people, it's Christmas time. Today I got to thinking and reflecting on past Christmases. You see before I became a Christian, Christmas was all about presents and me getting disappointed that I would get something I didn't want in the first place. It's been ten years now, and I have grown to think that Christmas is more than just cool gifts.
I went back to El Taco today after work. I came, I saw, and I got my free my chicken quesadilla. Read my last blog so you will know what I'm talking about.
So check this out. Yesterday for lunch, I went to El Taco (Which is spanish for, the taco) and ordered a simple order of taquitos and a coke. Now, it was super slow, and I don't know why but it took forever. Then more people started coming in and they were getting their food before me.
It's time for me to tell you all something. This is not easy for me. I have a secret that I need to put out in the open. This means that many of you may loose respect for me. There is an addiction I am facing. I've been facing it for almost a year. I have just not told anybody about it until now.
I wonder if I can get a job wth TMZ. I'm watching it right now (The shame, the shame). I just wanna be one of those guys who are like, "Okay, so we got Lee Majors coming out of the Ivy and man, he's really let himself go".
On November 18, 1928 this happened. I'm not going to tell you what it was, that's your job to figure it out. Here's a video to help you out.
As some of you know, I work at Albertson's. It's not the best job in the world, but I kind of like it. I work at the customer service lobby. My job includes processing film, sending out Money Grams, cashing checks, cashing lottery tickets and ringing up items in the store.
The past few weeks have become rather interesting at church. I've been nominated as the head of the Media Ministry. True, I nominated myself. I didn't do it because of the attention. I didn't do it because I've always wanted to lead a ministry. I did it because the ministry faded away. It's been gone for about a year and a half and I felt that it needed to come back. I've been involved making videos at church now for three years and I needed to do something about it.
So the "Cool" at Prop 8 thought it would be a great idea to get a celebrity to endorse a NO vote on Prop 8. But Why Samuel L. Jackson? That's just not cool. Got that Sam, Not cool at all. I'm still voting yes. Here's the dang commercial.
I just realized the other day that I've been blogging for a whole year now. Thanks for reading. I have nothing else to say.
As some of you may or may not know, Friday night, my uncle, Eric flew me out on a trip to Park City, Utah. It sure was an amazing trip. On that note, here is my Jason Parks sized blog.
