Hi.

Essential Wisdom, 2015

What are you doing?

I'm about to make dinner, but right now I'm watching old Aerosmith videos on YouTube. Crazy. Cryin'. Life just started feeling too serious and I felt like returning to something that reminded me of my more rebellious days. So here I am. It happens. We like what we like. Did you know both Stephen Dorff (from Sofia Coppola's movie, Somewhere) and Josh Holloway (Sawyer from Lost) are in the Cryin' video with Alicia Silverstone? All of them so young... Yes. It is true.

  2. My husband and I - our song is Angel (from the 80s). I was just thinking tonight about how the movies of my youth have stayed with me, and formed my love of romantic novels and movies. Likely hair bands played a part in that as well.

  7. I have to say my favorite Aerosmith is either Dream On or Janie's Got A Gun...I'll have to go check out your selection.

    One year on a field project I had this technician who figured out that 80's music made me ridiculously happy and so she would gauge my mood in the morning...if grumpy (which was usually cuz I am so not a morning person), she'd break out the 80's playlist. Almost immediately I'd be cheered up listening to the silly lyrics.

    1. Great favorites! Now I'm thinking about Sweet Emotion and Back in the Saddle... Wise technician. I hope you listen to a few of those songs, and feel that accompanying cheer, soon.

  9. Ahh so true. Now that you mention it, there is a lifting of the weight of life and a general relaxing that occurs when one returns to music of the past. I must remember to do it more often. And yeegawds they are all SO young in that video!!!!

  10. Yes! I love to listen to 80's, too. They always bring me amusing memories through layers of time. Favorite musics enable me to chat with the younger "me" and bring the vitality. Have a nice weekend with cool musics.
