Day 2 to the rest of your life

It is 9:13 am. The sun is shining gloriously, reflecting angelic off the newly fallen snow. Pretty. It is Friday and I have a second day off from work. Highly unusual. Unprecedented snowfall here in Northern Virginia. At least in the last 3 or 4 years. I wouldn’t know about that since I’ve only been here since October. But my eyes do not decieve me.

So I have a gift today, this Day of Valentine. What shall I do with my gift? For one, I’m writing this post. Writing when the mood is not upon me. When not even the best of juicers can illicit a drop of creativity from my cranium. So why don’t I tell you about the last coupla days.

Been doing a bit of “tubing” and  stumbled on yet another band  I really like – In the Moment. Their official vids are by far the best (it’s that way for so many bands isn’t it? except for the Chili Peppers lol). So I’m posting links to some of my favorite In the Moment songs. Granted you have to be in the mood but really, who can deny their most excellent rendtion of Blondie’s Call Me. Check it:

This one’s pretty tame. I like how tight the band is. Wonder how long I can go on not writing this morning…..geez trying not to post the “scary” vids like

Hey, since it’s Friday, give a thought to stopping by tonight at the Wakefield Doctrine sponsored Friday Night Hangout Vid Chat. Hangout, it’s a google thing. Always cool people coming and going, some staying. We talk about all kinds of shit…. like the Doctrine and why clarklike females (with a 2ndary scottian aspect)  and a few scottian women are the only females to like this band. Just hangin’ on a Friday night, ya know?

Some more mood music for you edge people. Later peeps. Later….

Tell me you don’t like this one. Tell me your head is not doin’ the bob.

    The music is awesome. I love how you incorporate music. 😀
    Vid chat: one of these days I’m going to call. I have more and more stuff working with regards to that and I’m thinking I need to get better at it so I can start tutoring online. 🙂
    For now: coursework. Bleh. I’m procrastinating. Can’t you tell? 😉

      Thank you Cyndi and you are welcome to procrastinate here anytime!
      We will keep the light on for you at the Vid Chat:)
      Now back to the coursework young lady. It won’t be there forever:)

    I am an old fuddy duddy, and these “songs” just don’t do it for me. Why the screaming? Why? It reminds me too much of children fighting.

    Hope you are enjoying the unprecedented (or at least only every 4 years) snow day.


    • GirlieOnTheEdge · February 14, 2014

      Christine, you are no fuddy duddy:) It’s an aquired taste. And the mood must be proper.
      So I can cross out one scottian woman not into In The Moment. LOL

      I am enjoying the sunshine and warmth while we have it today. A little more snow tonight I believe and then, I think that’s it for a while. I hope.

      Have a wonderful weekend!

    My head did no bob. And I want to get that poor girl some soothers for her throat! OWWW!

    Though the guy in ‘promise’ has a nice voice. Might see you later.


    • GirlieOnTheEdge · February 14, 2014

      ‘sOK my friend. He did have a nice voice.
      What do you mean “might”?


  4. findingninee · February 15, 2014

    You always do such a great job of using music in your posts and I’m so excited for you that you had a day off. We did too but you know – I had to entertain a 4 year old all day so it felt more like work (although it was fun). Happy V-Day weekend!


    • GirlieOnTheEdge · February 15, 2014

      Thank you Kristi. Hope you enjoyed:)
      Yes, good to have the day off. Hope you and Tucker enjoyed the snow!

    Hey your ‘other’ blog does not allow Comments to Posts.
    So here is my Comment:

    “Once I had it all and now I have nothing. There comes a time when it is necessary to take a stand and make a choice. To find another place. To acknowledge how it is you want to live.”
    well stated, but imo, thats all you can hope to get. the rest is to act in the here and now… you get to be forced to confront the simple fact that there is only the here and now, that the people, places and things (in your ‘life’) are features that reflect your own needs and desires, but as ‘real’ they are no more real than your (current) hope for a better life…and no less real than
    Power is a verb, the body creates the world each and every day, claim the power and live the life.
    the nostalgia that we hold for anything and everything, present and past is remarkable… ask the abused spouse, ask the self-abused person, ask anyone….the worst and most self-limiting aspects of our ‘real’ lives is way, way more sought after (and when left behind, missed) than any promise of happiness.

    …fucked up, non?

    I waste so many hours on the “tube”. I find gems, though, like you have.

    Hopefully I will get around next Friday to say hello. I’ll wear my horns and cat mask.


    • GirlieOnTheEdge · February 17, 2014

      It’s easy to do. Can’t believe how quickly time passes watching videos!
      That would be cool:) Yes. They are quickly becoming signature:)


  7. skipcote · February 17, 2014

    I dont do music much in general so it didnt really sing to me ( pardon the horrible pun.) But I totally get the procrastination thing! And reading mr.philosophy’s (Clark) comment I think I need to read the other blog too! Intrigued.


    • GirlieOnTheEdge · February 17, 2014

      No worries. I had only one reader like any of the songs. LOL. Like I said – gotta be in the mood for it.
      I used to procrastinate much, much worse when I was younger. Then I got better. I seem to be regressing now that I’m older!
      Thanks in advance if you do. Funny about the comment thing. The first post I did at tube tops way long ago allowed for comments. Due to my procrastination writing the second post, damned if I can figure out how/why (not) comments can be/can’t be left!!
      Thanks for stopping by tonight:)


  8. skipcote · February 17, 2014

    I had that prob on rewritten at first until another blogger cued me was something shut off in settings under comments cant remember exactly. …so the other blog is tube tops?


    • GirlieOnTheEdge · February 18, 2014

      The weird thing is, the first post you could leave comments. Now who the f knows what I did! Will try and figure it out by the weekend.
      Yes, it is tube tops, tattoos and TimeLines. The tube tops and tattoos is reference to 2 posts I did back in 2011 I think.


  9. LauraALord · May 22, 2014

    This is one of my favorite bands! Oh my god, they are fantastic. We had tickets to go see them, but due to the snow they had to cancel the show. Broke my heart. Go listen to their songs “Blood” and “Whore” and “Adrenaline.” Absolutely studdening!


    • GirlieOnTheEdge · May 22, 2014

      I can’t believe it! Someone who knows In the Moment. They are relatively new to me but I liked their stuff. If you read any of the other comments, no one really liked the vids I posted LOL. Finally! Someone did. Nice to have company Laura:)


      • LauraALord · May 22, 2014

        It sure is! I’ve posted plenty of these songs before and only had a few people who actually really liked them. In This Moment is fantastic. And Maria Brink is girl crush material. She’s just wonderful 😀
