ARGH!!!

I'm so mad and sad!

Warning to whomever gets my song next month... It's going to be Linkin Park.... I LOVED them (saw them in concert, of course) and am so sad/mad their singer (Chester Bennington) committed suicide! I cannot even imagine what musicians and actors go through, but it must be some seriously heavy stuff for so many of them to choose to take their own lives...

I am also still marinating on my song LO.... For all that I lived and love the 90s music scene, I'm not much of an Alanis fan so I might be doing a CJ-like justification for the inspiration I use!

Apparently he was extremely distraught over Chris Cornell's death and today would've been Chris' birthday. 😓

Before I learned about the Chris Cornell connection, my son was looking at the lyrics for "Heavy". He said that you could tell that something was up.

Yes... that's what I read also.
I'm sad for him that he was so tormented that he felt this was the best way to find relief...
I am also sad for his wife and 6 kids who lost their husband and father...

Sad all the way around! ::

Definitely sad for the music world! It hurts my heart to know that anyone would take their own life.
And those lyrics to Heavy are definitely sad ones.

All of the Linkin Park lyrics are like that. I like them but it got to the point where I couldn't listen to them anymore because it was so darn depressing!

Ugh that was sad as well, though I wasn't as much of a Soundgarden fan as hubs was. I did see him in concert as Audioslave though. UGH... I listened to Hybrid Theory earlier today working on my work project and had to stop because it made me so sad that another soul who was so talented is gone.

I already know which song I'm going to pick....

No, it's not going to be Heavy... Despite plenty of material, I don't think my recipient would appreciate me much for that!

I refuse to add the 'd' at the end of love....

I did see Blink 182 cancelled the tour they had planned with LP tho... Interestingly Blink was one of the bands I saw with LP back in the day. That would have been epic! urg...

Interesting that you bring up Blink 182... I have listened to LP off and on over the years, never "stopped" listening to them. However it's been yearszzzzz since I listened to Blink 182 and just recently I got back into them, like I'd say within the last 3 weeks... I even purchased a Blink 182 Greatest Hits CD, hope this isn't some kind of an "omen".

LOL! Geez I hope not! I've actually had similar situation. Since loosing all my data on my old college computer, I didn't have the music I had back then (or the pictures), but since adding a ton of 90s music from mp3s and Pandora, I've really gotten back into my music genres. Feels good!
It should be noted I had CDs, but they've all been scratched or disappeared!

Isn't it funny/sad that the music we listened to is now a 'greatest hits' kind of music?

Funny and sad...

I used to listen to "oldies" on K Earth 101, now music I listened to when I was growing up is being played on there and I'm like, "wait...does that mean my music is now considered "oldies"... oh no!" LOL!

OMG you're in my head again! Sistas from another mista! Lol
I just said that to DH this weekend! We were listening to K-Earth as well and Pearl Jam came on and we both started feeling old! WHAT in the world?!? PEARL JAM as 'oldies'!?! Eddie Vedder is probably cringing from his Hawaiian beach house...

I did the bonus song! I'm just putting the direct link for now because I'm on my phone, and will be all day, and I cannot for the life of me get the embedding link to copy!!

Anyways, I loosely took the lyric "We went searching through thrift store jungles." My boyfriend and I are frequent thrift flyers so it really hit home. I used ribbon for the twist that came from also a thrift store. These LO isn't really celebrating any specific trip to a thrift store so I don't know how much journaling I will do. I am not sold on the "We searched through" and will probably change it, the, but it does what it needs to for now.

I will try my best to remember I need to embed it later, so hopefully by tomorrow it'll be right!

ACU mms

It's very sad that some musicians are so tormented but I think that's where their talent sometimes come from I wish they'd use their wealth to check into a top notch hospital for the sake of their kids even if it used every last dime they had. Somehow I think the kids would take the loss of wealth to have their parent back.

Oldies yup had 101 on and it wasn't playing 50's and I was like wuuuuut when did the 80 and early 90's become oldies

Need to get mine going know the pic and line for a couple just been enjoying summer and working in a swap

I have not forgotten, just been a month of Mondays or something. I have my photos and lyrics picked out, just haven't found a design that will make them play nicely together, yet. Plan on working on it between loads of laundry today, my guys willing.

Finally coming in at the last minute!

My song was perfect for these two, as they really are great friends and will always stand by each other, but I really struggled to make it all work together until I simplified it down to one word from the last line, "friends".
