As the title says, this is pretty much an excuse for me to tell you about my new song. But lookie here, there are other things we can talk about to water down the blatant self-promotion:
^^Hey, look at that trendy, copy-pasted text! *pats myself on the back*
There's one thing that I'm sure we've all been pondering for a while: my poll for everyone's favorite hobbit (<if you're reading currently, see the left sidebar). It ended up tied between Sam and Pippin.
You all have good taste.
And yes, I voted for Sam. But Pippin's cool too. I was thinking about going on a rant about how Sam's the best hobbit of the bunch but I thought scandalizing half my viewership wasn't the best idea. ;)
It's really cold right now. Like, so cold that there's ice fog everywhere and when you breathe in your nostril hairs immediately freeze.
Right now the computer says it's -2 degrees. *dies inside because of how cold it is and because I can't find the degrees sign on the mac keyboard*
(I was so close to making a Hamilton reference for this one. So close. But I'm sure you Hamiltonians will get it anyway. Or it will just drive you crazy, muahahaha.)
This weekend I went and saw La La Land with my mom, our current youth minister, and our former youth minister (funny how that worked out).
It's difficult to describe how I felt about this movie. It was amazing, unlike anything I had seen before (which isn't much, because I haven't seen that many artsy things). The acting, the visuals, and the music were all fantastic.
It was a musical, but also romantic, but also a comedy, but also a philosophical conundrum.
The problem was that when it ended I felt like I had been kicked in the stomach. Repeatedly. By a cave troll. Without spoiling anything, I'll just say it was a very emotional movie. So you might want to keep that (and the unnecessary PG-13-level content) in mind before you think of seeing it.
My friend MJ started her own blog, where she is enjoying being sometimes fanciful, always random, and never politically correct. Enjoy if you dare.
All right, now we come to the song. It's the second one I've ever written, it's highly influenced by conversations with MJ, and it is not autobiographical at all (haha I wish ;P):
There’s something in my eye, not sure who but I know it’s a guy
And you tell me to reach for the sky but I don’t really wanna try
I dream about romance but none of these dudes have a chance
So I think I’ll just wear pajama pants and binge watch Netflix
My mom says in college guys always get better
My brain says I need a large Irish Setter
My dad says it’s fine and my books push dystopian romance
The man I have in mind’s eloquent as Ed Sheeran,
Brave as a hobbit and funny as Martin Freeman,
And looks don’t really matter but I think he looks a lot like Chris Pine
Do do do, dut do do do do do do do
My fortune cookie says soon I’ll see an improvement
But in my love life I don’t see that much movement
Unless you count seeing Ryan Gosling for the first time
The press says my problem is high expectations,
But I don’t see an issue with having aspirations
Except they make me wanna curl up in a ball and die
Do do do, dut do do do do do do do DO,
But the Bible says why the long face,
Don’t underestimate time and grace
And I need to trust that I’m in the right place
But for now there is…
Who's your favorite hobbit, and why? How cold is it outside your house? And do you sometimes want to give up on the male population and sit binge watching Netflix? (sorry guys if you're reading this. You're excepted. ;)
