Whatever …

…tomorrow brings, I’ll be there.

with open arms and open eyes.

How you doing?  Good, I hope.  I’m doing fine… just really busy in the real world.  Taking time out to reach out and touch is important though…

I was on my way home from work today (Thursday) when I decided to just make a beeline to the grocery to pick up some essentials.  Feeling to hang about a bit, I went to the movies right after, where I took in Shia in “Eagle Eye”.  Good movie… go see it if you can.  I really wanted to catch “Traitor” with my boy Don Cheadle, but I think it finished its run in local cinemas on Wednesday.

[I Watch Stuff]

Close to being on my way home, and being bored with what I was hearing on the radio, I changed stations, and heard the opening bars of one of my favourite songs …

I was a teen when “Slippery When Wet” came out, and I practically wore out the album on my cassette player.  Top notch lyrics and music, even though Rock wasn’t really my thing.  I had the windows up and the AC on, so I sang without a care in the world as I drove by my house a few times at about 5 klicks/hr.  Bon Jovi really knows how to perform (and write) a tune.

If that wasn’t bad enough, just as I was about to stop and get out to open the gate, the DJ followed it up with this song. Man, I just got back in my car, put my foot back on that accelerator and continued driving… and singing!

This song introduced me to Incubus, and I like it for the melody, lyrics and instrumentation.  The original video was tight too, and well, original.  I’d have embedded it here, but I couldn’t find a copy that could.  It’s here, though.

Today was just a good day.

🙂

I got a chance to go to Tobago last weekend with my girlfriend, and I took some pictures of Mount Irvine (pronounced Irving) Bay Hotel, the beach and some other things.  Look out for them on Bobolee Pix soon.  I think I took over 200 pix, and it’ll take me a while to sort, pick and watermark the best of the best.

Peace and Rice, folks!

Rent-Ah-Tile Wednesday

In keeping with my ‘no stress for the week pledge’, here’s some “Rent-A-Tile” music.

In Trinbagonian parlance, to “rent-a-tile” means to slow-dance with your partner held so closely to you, that your feet/bodies don’t move that much on the dance floor.

Its almost like all the two of you do is ‘dance’ (more like grind) on the same tile…

Rent-Ah-Tile music are the songs you have to dim those lights and hold your honey bunches of oats reeeeal close.

Here’s something from the sultry, seductive Sade: Cherish The Day.

Put the kids to bed! 😉


You’re ruling the way that I move
And I breathe your air
You only can rescue me
This is my prayer

If you were mine
If you were mine
I wouldn’t want to go to heaven

I cherish the day
I won’t go astray
I won’t be afraid
You won’t catch me running
You’re ruling the way that I move
You take my air

You show me how deep love can be


Sade Adu
You’re ruling the way that I move
And I breathe your air
You only can rescue me
This is my prayer

I cherish the day
I won’t go astray
I won’t be afraid
You won’t catch me running
I cherish the day
I won’t go astray
I won’t be afraid
Won’t run away

You show me how deep love can be
You show me how deep love can be
This is my prayer

I cherish the day
I won’t go astray
I won’t be afraid
Won’t run away
Won’t shy

I cherish the day
I won’t go astray

I cherish the day
I cherish the day
I cherish the day
I cherish the day
I cherish the day

Peace and Much Love.

Smooth Soul Groove Monday

I’m really feeling mellow today.  In a good way.

I don’t want to get stressed out this week.  I don’t want to let things get to me.

I won’t.  They can’t.  They won’t.

I think I’m going to find and play good music everyday… and share it with you.

First up, here’s something from Anthony David. Its a duet with India.Arie.

From Anthony’s album “Red Clay Chronicles”, here’s their collaboration: Words.

They definitely make beautiful music together.

I believe that
Heaven must be like this
Ray of sunshine
Kissed upon your skin
Just say you love me
Make my day go good
Pot of gold at the
End of the rainbow

Can’t tell you nothin’ you ain’t already heard
No matter what I say it’s nothin’ but words
Just let me prove to you what I know is real
Let me express to you the way that I feel

I believe that
Love is synonymous
With heaven
Such a sensual bliss
The way you touch me
Makes this life so good
A reward at the
End of the long road

Black White Rose

Can’t tell you nothin’ you ain’t already heard
No matter what I say it’s nothin’ but words
Just let me prove to you what I know is real
Let me express to you the way that I feel

Fairy tales can be
Real if you just believe
Go my mind made
I don’t plan to leave
Cuz you were meant for me
Simple that may be
Why be complex
Loving you is so easy

Can’t tell you nothin’ you ain’t already heard
No matter what I say it’s nothin’ but words
Just let me prove to you what I know is real
Let me express to you the way that I feel
