Playlist of the Week

I’ve been living off these three songs this week. They are practically the only tracks I’ve been listening to. I don’t know, I’m just obsessed with them for some reason or other.

Dig by Incubus. I love this song because it’s by the best band in the whole world and because it reminds me of my sister. I use the chorus as my alarm tone and my sister heard it when I was home for the holidays and she liked it so much that she kept playing it. Because of that, this song rocks even more. Plus I’ve always loved Incubus’ clever way with words. Who else can come up with lines like these:

If I turn into another, dig me up from under what is covering the better part of me. Sing this song, remind me that we’ll always have each other when everything else is gone.

Hate That I Love You by Rihanna featuring Ne-Yo. Have you seen the video? Rihanna’s gorgeous and so is this track. Yeah, yeah, it’s sappy stuff, but it’s uber cool sap. Very catchy, too.

And I hate how much I love you boy, I can’t stand how much I need you (yeah). And I hate how much I love you boy, But I just can’t let you go. And I hate that I love you so. One of these days maybe your magic won’t affect me, and your kiss won’t make me weak. But no one in this world knows me the way you know me, so you’ll probably always have a spell on me.

Misery Business by Paramore. I first saw the video of this and I thought it was Ashlee Simpson trying to rock out. I was shocked that she actually sounded good. Then I realized it wasn’t little Ashlee and the world made sense again. Haha. I heard the acoustic version on radio and it just made me wish I had the patience and passion to master that damn guitar. Sigh. Anyway, their website calls them a pop punk band. I prefer to call them cute-punk. The girl sounds and looks so cute.

Whoa, I never meant to brag, but I got him where I want him now. Whoa, it was never my intention to brag, to steal it all away from you now. But god does it feel so good, Cause I got him where I want him now. And if you could then you know you would.

Manic Friday

There are so many things in my head right now and I am praying to explode (or implode maybe).

I’m listening to NU107 and, as what always happens when I’m listening to music I like, I want to do nothing but drown drown drown in the sound. I miss watching Pinoy bands live.

At the same time I’m surfing the net and reading about independent/cult films I’ve missed and I feel besieged with the desire to somehow find all these films and not leave my apartment until I’ve watched them all.

These days I’m also obsessing again about t-shirts, indie shirts, band shirts, whatever. I feel weird obsessing about shirts. I’m thinking I want to screen print my own shirt one of these days. Crap, I wish I was artistic.

Speaking of obsessions, I think I have the design I want inked on my back, but now I’m thinking maybe I should get in shape first before I do anything. I need to tone my lazy ass. Argh. I’m too lazy to exercise. Must play ultimate tomorrow.

I’ve been surfing (stalking) people’s blogs too. I stumbled onto the blog of rising indie actor and musician Ping Medina, spawn of the great Pen Medina. Now I think I’m having one of my week-long crushes again (last week it was Justin Long, as a result of having watched Die Hard 4). I’ve only seen one film of the guy – Ang Pagdadalaga ni Maximo Oliveros. great film.

I’m too lazy to do any work right now.

Thank God it’s Friday?
