A Moment with Henry: Beyond the Sea

I took this on my last day in Hawaii almost five years ago, in the van on the way to the airport.
There are few things in this world that make me happier than watching a Disney movie. Of all the Disney/Pixar creations I have quite a fondness for Finding Nemo that really can't be defined. I mean I LOVE Monsters, Inc. and Cars, and all the Toy Stories. Up and Wall-E are great, and The Incredibles has grown on me (I was somewhat disappointed in it on first watch.) Finding Nemo surprised me I think. So I love it. I love the ending when they play Bobby Darin's Beyond the Sea. Although I think I might like to go Beyond the Sea first, and then maybe no more sailing, if I were to find someone waiting for me, in Fiji. Or something. This song always makes me feel better, about life, as does watching an excellent Disney film.

I have been in an extreme funk this semester and I have no idea why. I think I figure out a solution to my issue, but then, no, there it is. That nagging feeling. Li…

The Second Hand Unwinds

I typed in Time After Time in the Playlist search engine for my song of the week this week.

Say what you will, I love that song. It is one of my all time favorites. Cyndi Lauper, Quietdrive, Saosin, Sarah McLaughlin, whomever sings it on the Strictly Ballroom soundtrack (I can't remember their names right now.)

Those are all the versions of that song that I own.

I love it.

So when Ashley Tisdale came up on the list of results, I wanted to stab myself. In the ear.

Listen to Cyndi's version. Remember the excellent music video she did for that song? (bahaha. The single tear at the end gets me... time after time... Oh the 80s.)

Also, did you read this? Yes I know, another blog. That nobody cares about. Why do I try? I don't know. I think I need to go to BA (Bloggers Anonymous.) Anyway, read it. Thanks.
