Length Matters #2

I’m talking, of course, about songs. What did you think I meant?

It’s been a while since I’ve posted some music, so I thought I’d share my favorite songs that are a bit long-winded. I went with songs over five minutes, which really isn’t even that long. This is by no means an all inclusive list since I’m not about to do research for this.

Many of these, if not all, have that quality I have decided to call, “You-Think-It’s Over-But-It’s-Not Syndrome.” Very creative, don’t you think? What I also love is how some of these songs have sections, like you could split them into parts and almost make different songs out of one. Awesome.

I’ve decided I’m going to dedicate each Wednesday in May to Ze Frank.

Ze May, if you will.

I still love him. So, so much. He’s still so awesome to me. Inspirational, wise, wonderful. He always has this way to make me feel at ease with this thing we call life. I’m not sure how, but who cares.

Enjoy.

I’m an introvert and have been for as long as I can remember. I think introversion is often misunderstood. And it’s something I’ve been thinking about a lot lately, wondering if I’m insanely flawed. Because being an introvert is such a strong part of me, expect more posts related to introverts in the future.

This video attempts to shed some light on this topic. Enjoy.

Wednesday Wisdom #5

I mentioned once or twice or more that I don’t like pop music too much these days. This video showed up as a recommendation on YouTube, and I couldn’t agree more with what Corey Taylor has to say.

*FYI: Corey is a fan of the f bomb.

Yes, yes, yes. Amen. 🙂
