Offically Sappy Post- Negative Commentors need not reply

Pop rock in the last 15 years hasn't particularly appealed to me. Occasionally; however, I slide the dial past the low end loaded with NPR and other strange stations to listen to the other stations out there. I confess that the song 1985 amused me. I also confess to thinking My Band as pretty darn funny (and yes, loaded with explictives) but extremely creative. People might not particularly like Eminem, but they can't deny he is one of the most intelligent rappers out there. I mean who else can rhyme to Munchausen?

Anyway, I really do like the song She Will Be Loved by Maroon 5. It reminds me of the love that R gives me.

"It's not always rainbows and butterflies, it's compromise that moves us along"
is one of my favorite lines, but I specifically love the line "She will be loved." For a little girl, a young woman, to be loved is more than she could dream of and all she ever desired.

And Sunday Morning- well, that one speaks for itself. :D

Gentle & sweet. Nothing wrong with that. Went ahead and picked it up [the original song and the acoustic version] off the iTunes Music Store based on this. Thanks.

Yes, Greg, they are sweet songs. Glad to point you to something nice :)

I've seen your site on my sitemeter before and briefly visited, but went back with your comment and really liked what I read.

I didn't know Leslie liked Maroon 5. She will love the CD...

Hey, Garden State is out. Go rent it and let me know what you think.

Love and peace to you baby brother.

We rented Garden State. I liked it. It was very much my kind of movie, not so much Leslie's kind of movie but she liked some of it. The drug scenes were suprising because i don't remember you mentioning them. We just weren't prepared for all that stuff but its nothing we haven't seen before. i really enjoyed the commentary of deleted scenes on the DVD. To hear Braff(spelling?) discuss not wanting to cut a single line and later having to cut an entire scene was what we as architects are constantly battling. On New Years Eve we watched Life Aquatic. It was very similar to The Royal Tanenbaums, there is some language, a little nudity, but you gotta put that in or no one will go? Overall it was okay a bit long we kept thinking this should be over by now. We rented Napoleon Dynamite and watched it with mom. She really enjoyed it. sorry this is so long, i should be sending this in an email but i started typing and couldn't stop. We recieved your gifts and will begin my search too use mine today. Leslie likes hers and has began reading it. We looked for rings on Friday, and found one! It is exactly what i would have picked out if i had no idea what she wanted, it is so her. it was even on sale, the tag said sale on it. but we didn't really notice till i asked how much. and this means i get to spend the money that i earned last summer on the ring, i don't know what it is i didn't even work that hard but to know that i earned that money and saved it and bought a piece of my future with it is exciting. (not how that sounds, "bought a piece of my future". it is white gold and has some "lacy" carving stuff as it comes up to the setting this means the setting (prongs)is really incorporated into the ring which is what we were looking for. The lacy stuff are peices of half hearts and in the middle under the prongs they come together to form a heart, this we are getting rid of, leslie didn't like the heart. i didn't even notice it at first, it is very small but the jeweler said he could take it out and so he will. I hope everybody liked their gifts, even though it said from nick it should have said nick and leslie, she helped.
love you
