An Ode To Cumuli

Sung to the tune of Queen’s Fat Bottomed Girls

Oh won’t you coat the sky today
Oh block out all those UV rays
Oh and you never bring the rain
Flat bottomed clouds you give this rocking world some shade

Hey I was just a walking fiend
Who forgot to wear sunscreen
Thought I’d burn before I’d walk a couple miles
But then overhead you towered
Soft and white like cauliflower
Heaping cumulus, you done make this walker smile

Hey hey!

I’ve been walking, don’t you know
‘Cross the city, ‘cross the Bow
I’ve felt every ray of sunshine on the way
But when I’m beneath your shade
I feel like I could walk all day
‘Till the sun goes down and its rays you glow

C’mon
Oh won’t you coat the sky today
Oh block out all those UV rays
Oh and you never bring the rain
Flat bottomed clouds you give this rocking world some shade
Flat bottomed clouds you give this rocking world some shade

Yes, I know there’s another verse, but this is all I remember coming up with on my walk this afternoon, so chill.

The Brave Little Blogger Goes for the 4 Year Mark

Next month at this time, I shall have passed the “I’ve been blogging for four years” mark. A stupid celebration of my lack of a life is being planned.

In other news, four day weekend, bitches! Thank you, Christianity.

ALSO: the very brief conversation with Maggie regarding Mika’s “Rain” music video (congrats, by the way ) got me thinking about the strange/cool/WTF music videos I’ve seen in my quest for a new song every day (and, of course, in years previous). You know this means you have to put up with another list (don’t worry, no repeats of past MVs I’ve posted):

  • Sebastien Tellier’s Look: probably the smoothest, most chill music video I’ve seen. Nothing like staring at a lady’s backside for four minutes.
  • Air’s Sing Sang Sung: nice flow, plus COLORS!
  • Mika’s Relax (Take it Easy): again, COLORS!
  • Queen’s Who Wants to Live Forever: because it’s Queen and this song is insanely awesome.
  • Gigi D’agostino’s The Riddle: I have no idea if I’ve ever linked to this one before, but it’s cool enough to be a repost if I happened to have done so. Jacob gets like 6 million brownie points for introducing me to this song/video.
  • The Rain’s Symmetry: lack of drumsticks and wet Germans. Why? Who the hell knows. Maybe ‘cause they’re The Rain?

Yeah.

 

Today’s song: Ariel by Dean Friedman

 

STILL STUDYING, blogs still short!

Best. Freaking. Sporcle. Quiz. Ever.

WSU!

Huttah!

The band marched “Queen” halftime at WSU today! We were pretty good. I think. Now I know that I can march with very shaky knees. And while suppressing my impulse to vomit.

Hehe.
