Music to my ears…

First let me start by saying that I tried Tumblr’s blog and my god it was confusing. I’ll just stick to this.

Do you have a song that you can listen to non stop?  Do you have a song that can instantly put a smile on your face?  Do you have a song that as soon as you hear the first note, it brings a tear to your eye?  What about a song that you want played for your funeral?  Ok that last question is kind of weird but people choose their funeral song more often than you may think.

Non stop- 

  I’ll fly with you by Gigi D’Agostino.  This has to be one of my favorite songs.  It brings me right back to my days in the service.

Put a smile on my face- 

  Part time lover by Stevie Wonder. Something about this song just puts a smile on my face.  As soon as the first note hits, I remember visiting my mom in Arizona.

Brings a tear- 

 When my parents got divorced I remember my mom telling me that we’d be under the same bright star.

Funeral song (im dead serious on this pun intended)- 

 I’ve loved this damn song since i could first remember hearing it sampled by Jay Z.


First things first…Cutler is a fkn idiot and needs to go. The Bears shouldn’t be this bad with all the good players on this team.

For some reason i think about death.  I mean, not really how I’ll die, but my funeral.  I guess it’s just planning ahead.  I’ve told my wife that I want to be cremated, with part of my ashes spread in alamogordo and the other part kept for her.  Of course though, she wasn’t going for it.  I then told her to have my ashes added to some tattoo ink and get a small tattoo in remembrance of me. Nope.  So then I said fk it, donate my body to the Body Farm.  The problem with that though is that is, it’s expensive to ship my ass from here to Tennessee.  I don’t really want a casket. I don’t see the point of paying all that money just to look good before you rot.  I’m going to get a military funeral since I’m a veteran and of course my wife will get the flag, but after that, just throw my body to the wolves.

The funny thing is, even though I don’t want an actual funeral, I do want music played.  I already have songs picked out.  1) I’ll fly with you by Gigi D’agostino 2)Broken Wings by Mister Mister 3) Father Figure by George Michael 4) My Way by Frank Sinatra 5)Chasing Cars by Snow Patrol and 6) My Immortal by Evanescence 7)Slippin by DMX 8) Celebration by Cool and the Gang.  I know you’re probably thinking ..why?  Each one of these songs has a special meaning to me which i won’t get into right now.

I know it’s crazy, but I also told my wife that if I do have to have a true funeral, I want my tattoos cut off and put in a case with formaldehyde to be put on display.  Again, like the songs, each tattoo tells a story.  Now, you and I both know that my wife wouldn’t do that, but I still think that would be pretty cool.  Plus, I spent a lot of money on them, why not show them off in frames?

Did i mention how much Cutler sucks balls.

Veterans Day is coming up and I think that all veterans should get a mandatory paid day off on that day.  When I say veteran, I’m not talking about all military men or women.  Only those that have been TDY or who are out of the service.  If you’re in the military and haven’t left the states, then really you’re not a veteran of anything.  I know some won’t agree with that but hey..whatever.
