This is what schema is good for...

My friend posted this video  -



- on my Facebook wall, and the whole time I kept thinking...gee, something's familiar about Ariel. Then it came to me...



Oh, Rick Perry. Priceless.

Other thoughts: The Prince Ali guy is pretty attractive. And he must be a math major because I've only ever seen math majors able to draw perfect chalkboard circles like that.

By the way, what's up with that? I haven't seen an actual chalkboard in years!

Also, Gaston is pretty darn talented. That's all.

Mix Tape Monday: Let's Try This Again

It's been a while. I know. The last month or so has been crazy with trying to get everything done for my classes. Fortunately, tomorrow is my last final. I apologize to my small but faithful readership for my lack of posting. Here's another attempt at regular activity.

Last year my friends and I saw My Darkest Days with Three Days Grace in Milwaukee. I wasn't really familiar with My Darkest Days except the one song I'd heard on the radio ("Porn Star Dancing"), but I'd liked Three Days Grace since about 2003 when I randomly bought their album on one of those CD subscription things. (Back when I still bought CD's instead of just digital copies).

Anyways, My Darkest Days opened with "Save Me" and, though not much of a concert goer, I was immediately struck by the feel of the bass hitting my body from the floorboards. I bought their album, but I really only ever listened to "Save Me" and maybe two other songs from the album, I hardly gave the rest of it a chance.

My bad.

I decided to plug "Save Me" into Pandora so I could find more songs like it and it couldn't be found. I typed in the band and the first song it played was one from the album I own but haven't listened to. It's beautiful. Here it is. This is the acoustic version. I love Matt Walst's voice. (His brother, Brad, is the bassist for Three Days Grace. That had to have been a fun tour for them.)



Here's the album version as well. Both versions are great, but I think I like this one a little better.

My Darkest Days - Can't Forget You

Powered by mp3skull.com

"Cant Forget You" by My Darkest Days
When it's said and done, you're the only one (You're
the only one)
And when it's said and done, you're the only one,
you're the only one

Whoever said this pain, would ever go away?
Didn’t know what it meant to, be here without you
Is everything you see, reminding you of me?
Does it hurt when you breathe too? cause it does when I
do, cause it does when I do

Chorus:
When anybody says your name I wanna run away,
I keep remembering I can't forget you
It doesn't matter when I try it happens anyway,
It's been forever and I can't forget you
With every single day, it won't go away
The way I feel about you
And when it's said and done, you're the only one
And I can't regret you, so I can't forget you

When it's said and done, you're the only one (You're
the only one)
And when it's said and done, you're the only one,
you're the only one

I hate to feel this way, my days all feel the same
And yesterday was proof, that tomorrow will too
No matter what they say, can't drink it all away
Cause all that I do, is think about you, is think about
you

Chorus:
When anybody says your name I wanna run away,
I keep remembering I can't forget you
It doesn't matter when I try it happens anyway,
It's been forever and I can't forget you
With every single day, it won't go away
The way I feel about you
And when it's said and done, you're the only one
And I can't regret you, so I can't forget you

Stop haunting my dreams
Please set me free
Stop haunting my dreams
Please set me free
(You're the only one)

Chorus:
When anybody says your name I wanna run away,
I keep remembering I can't forget you
It doesn't matter when I try it happens anyway,
It's been forever and I can't forget you
With every single day, it won't go away
The way I feel about you
And when it's said and done, you're the only one
And I can't regret you
Stop haunting my dreams (It's been forever and I can't
forget you)
Please set me free (It's been forever and I can't
forget you)
Stop haunting my dreams (It's been forever and I can't
forget you)
Please set me free (It's been forever and I can't
forget you)
