Writer's Block: Take me back

Is there any song that reminds you so much of an ex-partner that you can't stand to hear it? Details, please.

Say Goodbye, from Chris Brown. I were about to break up when he showed me this song; I asked him whether he meant it or not, he lied and I ended up breaking with him. Obviously it was not the only thing, but It was what helped me make my mind about what I really wanted to do with my life. He was not in my plan. However, I cannot bear to hear it even today.

Built to Spill - "Things Fall Apart"
Air - "How Does It Make You Feel?"
Animal Collective - "Bluish"
Grizzly Bear - "Ready, Able"
Astronautalis - "Love Song for Gary Numan"

The love of my life for four years left me a month ago. These songs wreck me every time I hear them. Honestly, I'm not sure which way to go; I can't see ahead in any direction.

I'm 24 and she's 20. I know I'm young, and that she's younger - I know that she has to experience life and to know herself apart, but she made a clean break and hasn't spoken to me in a month. I had planned to spend the rest of my life with this lady.  I suppose i should be a man about this and stop moping around so much, but it feels like she's a phantom limb.

Anyway, these songs listed above are the most beautiful, poignant, and heartbreaking songs that remind me of the lady that I love. I hope someone else can enjoy them.

i used to feel that way about "stereo love." it was such a hit this past semester and i heard it at a club on my first date with my "ex." we both loved it and called it "our song" from then on. then things went sour, fast. after that, i couldn't stand to hear the song and would change the station immediately whenever it came which was often. but after awhile i realized how silly i was being about it. it's just a song. i can do this! so now i just keep it on because it's a really fun song anyway.

My last Ex was OBSESSED with Radiohead, Nirvana and The Beatles. Like, to the exclusion of all else. So yeah, I tend to avoid those groups. In fact, my last 2 exes were similarly obsessed with The Beatles, so here;s hoping I find a Rolling Stones man.

Ohhhh! Wow.... where do i start?

There's: "How can i not love you?" from Anna and the King.

When on rough patches and on the verge of our breakup. I would listen to this and it reminded me alot of our 1st year of our relationship. How innocent and sweet it was.

I still think of it now. But i can listen to it now and just enjoy it for what it is. I can actually relate it to the new man in my life. I will not "give" this song to us however as i dont want to reuse anything from my past and that i still cherish the past that was good and kind to me once.

Theres lots more songs that i relate to my ex. Songs that he now doesnt listen to anymore since he just listens to rock or metal and probably doesnt even touch jpop or kpop anymore.

And i guess, simple as that, growing out of music, i lost him too.

However, a year since our breakup ... there are songs that remind me of him and our rocky relationship [ which is an understatement =p ] but there are songs that have helped me heal from him. Music is jut one of those beautiful and amazing things that can bring people together and heal someone's heartbreak =)

A little of topic but just getting some stuff out of my system =p! x

I would obviously choose to be Number One. She's an awesome character. She's one of my favorite from the series. I'd choose ot be her because she's very smart individual. Knowledge is one thing I love achieving. Therefore I feel for that particular similarity. I'd love to be one of the top intellects of the generation as she was.

Not really. I'm still friends with the exes (or whatevers) that meant the most to me, and hurt me the most. I'm happily with someone and living in the present, so the past doesn't hurt :P It can if I let it, but I don't..its really not hard to do.

What was the longest road trip you ever went on? How did you pass the time?

On a Greyhound bus.  It was 3 days on the trip back.  Yes, I did it twice.

It should only be three days to NYC but the bus broke down somewhere in the middle of nowhere, Utah and we were stuck there waiting for the "rescue bus" for six hours.  Finally, the rescue bus arrived to take us to Denver, Colorado.  We got there at around 1AM and the next bus will leave for Chicago, Illinois... at 8:30AM.  Yes, six hours to wait.  Six hours of NO SLEEP.  Got to Chicago, no problem.  Then when we got to Cleveland, Ohio, it was waist-deep snow.  It was too dangerous for buses to operate so we got stranded at the terminal for three hours.  When we finally got on the road, instead of going straight to NYC from Cleveland, we detoured to Syracuse, NY and then back out of New York State to Erie, Pennsylvania and then finally to Penn Station, NYC.  FOUR FRIGGIN' DAYS.  And oh, somewhere in Chicago, my luggage got separated from me.  It got to Penn Station before me.  The Greyhound people called me up to tell me it had arrived while I was still in New Jersey.  LOL.

Anyway, it was definitely an experience.  Might I add that I went on this journey all by my lonesome. 

The trip back wasn't as eventful.  The only difference was the bus has electricity and WiFi.  So I wasn't as cut-off from the world outside.  The three days flew by as the scenery outside my window.

When I broke up with my last boyfriend(the second time, it took up 3 times to make it stick :P)  Brian McKnight's Anytime came out and it pained me because of the ambilvilant manner in which we fell apart. I was so hurt that I wondered if he felt the same way too and Brian just sang, saaaang, saaaaaaaaaaaaaannnnnnggggggg my pain so well.
Now I can't hear that song without thinking of that man and the pain we caused each other. And of the lessons I learned, that a)  believe what he says and b) if he wants to be with you he would be with you....oh and the best lesson of all c) NEXT!

Writer's Block: Take me back

I had the misfortune of having my heart broken twice in my lifetime. When I read this post, 2 songs immediately came to mind.
First is Red Hot chili Pepper's 'Scar Tissue'. This was way back in the late 90's era when i was still in college studying to be a medical technologist and P was the king in my universe. He was my classmate then and a friend so falling in love with him just fell perfectly into the puzzle of my life. He was sweet (always leaving me with post-it notes in my books that I would later find), patient and some of his good habits have stayed with me even now.
'Scar Tissue' reminds me so much of him because the night before a very important exam in pathophysiology, he went to the trouble of getting me the lyrics to the song (we didn't have youtube then). It was sweet that he spared me a few minutes instead of studying. Although we parted on a sad note, (we could have gotten back together if I wasn't too proud), he managed to find me in facebook. We've grown past all the bitterness and misundertandings and renewed our friendship. He's married now.


The second song is James Blunt's 'You're Beautiful'. This was sometime around 2007. This song reminded me so much of J. He was an intern at the hospital that I was working at and he came to me one day at the nurses station while this song was playing and he told me how much he liked it. That was our first conversation and we've been together for 2 years. We didn't end on an amiable manner because suffice it to say, his career was more important to him. I guessed he just wasn't THAT into me if he had to choose his career over me. He wanted me to wait and I couldn't. Not when he couldn't given me the assurance that I wanted. He contacted me again in 2010 saying he wants to come back after his USMLE exams in september. Foolish of me to have waited until he had his exam but when october came, I never heard from him again.


They say life is full of not only the happy times but the sad times, as well. There might be a lot of songs that reminds us how bitter life and love can be but as time passes and you hear those songs again, you can't help but smile thinking fondly of how things have been. You'll find you've healed without even trying and that gives you the pleasure to appreciate these wonderful songs again!
I hope everyone who had unpleasant memories associated with some amazing melodies, will find it in their heart to be healed for those songs have journeyed with you in your life and should journey with you still. ♥

Well it doesn't remind me of an ex-partner, but of a friend. It's called "I Miss My Friend" by Darryl Worley. My friend was in the Marines and was deployed to the Middle East twice. I used to hear that song on my iPod or on the radio and I cried everytime I heard, and wouldn't be able to listen to the whole song. I still can't listen to it all the way through, even though he's home.

'Lips of an angel by Jack Ingram about 4 years ago a guy, lets call him Dimitri2 like the character from the movie Anastasia http://t2.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcQosDs5wGPklfIlQ7apNyv2rV5PH4Q0oDWSi3Oesttvi2WzCBOWDQ
He breaks my heart! I thought he was different ( dont they all tell you that!) I thought i could trust him. Little did i know at the time that he would brake my heart) and that basicly all men are born equel equely LIERS Yeah you heard me, I said LIERS cause they really are, they are the worst of the worst they love to lie ( unintentionally intentionaly) confusing right?.! So this one comes along after i break up with my ex " friend with benefists'', lets call him John Smith like the character from the movie Pocahontas http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_8GkAJMf7k50/TTUQJiO6TpI/AAAAAAAABA0/CRnqe8Q_z9Y/s400/Somiglianze-Pocahontas-JohnSmith_Cartone.JPG who by the way leaves me to rot after getting high with me one night and then leaves the country all of a sodden ( more on that a nother time) ( who also for some weird reason comes back for round two) So here i am talking to dimitri2 he finds all sad and vonrable and takes advantage of that fact, me being vonrable. Now ladys you guys should realize that these guys are good they are the best espetially when they are the sweet kind cause thats when you let them in the most cause they are so sweet and kind and funny and then thats when you forget taht you jsut got out of a long rlationship that whent sour and that maybe just maybe i should take a break of dating me?!!! So now i'm talking to this guy who is telling me that i can trust him, love him, laugh with him and then out of no where he leaves me to rot as well this time its even worse cause this time we even say i love you to each other and then he goes balistic and all of a sodden he has to leave the country too?!!! How convinient for him!  After he leaves me behind I started to listen to this song and ofcourse now it only reminds me of him.

I don't know which road trip was the longest, since every time my family and I go on a road trip, I listen to music and sleep the whole way there. I'm not very exciting nor entertaining on road trips. Maybe that will change one day when I'm not on a road trip with family ;).

Writer's Block: Fast-food TV

Are there any dreadfully bad TV shows that you wouldn't want your friends to know you watch? Confess! (This is LiveJournal, where we love you unconditionally.)

I don't watch TV anymore except for sports/news and the occasional sitcom during hockey intermissions, but I did use to watch America's Next Top Model and The Maury Show.

The former isn't bad, in particular. But people who know me in real life would probably be flabbergasted as I definitely don't seem the type. The latter was just a cheap way to pass my time as it is a pretty dreadful show... I would never admit to watching it. Never, never!

Other than those two, I don't have any other shows I'd be ashamed to admit watching. 

Oh wait... Maple Leafs hockey. My excuse is that I'm just trying to keep tabs on their team and I like James Reimer, but the truth is I'm actually entertained by them. In this case I'd never admit to liking them. Never, never! xP

"Hey There Delilah" - Plain White T's.  Sentimental Tacky Crap! as Jack Black's character from High Fidelity would put it.  I hated this song then and I hate it even more now for what memories it culls forth.  Quite frankly, there was one summer a few years ago that you absolutely could not get away from this song; it was a summer where I proved that I am a sad sorry sucker.  Duped twice by the same girl (who liked this song btw) in a 4 month time span.  Details? Trust me, this is one of those relationship horror stories that I don't think anybody wants to read about, nor do I feel like reliving it by recounting it.  I wish Lacuna Incorporated was more than just cinematic fantasy!

I used to drive from Northern NJ to Orlando Florida, a few times a year.  Most trips, I'd drive the family down and fly back to go to work and then reverse the process when their vacation was over.  Typically I'd leave on a Friday just before bedtime for the kids, and get to Orlando for dinner.  Other than quick confort breaks or food, I'd just listen to the radio.

I took a trip to Atlanta with my family in my last year of high school, we drove from near Toronto and stopped at a motel in Lexington, Kentucky. I can't say that much of the drive itself was very memorable, and I usually like long drives through pretty landscapes. Though on the way back we made a few decent stops: Duke University, Washington DC, and New York City (stayed here with my father's sister for a couple of days). I've had other and more memorable road trips before, but this was by far the longest. I got some of good pictures of Atlanta though.

The longest trip I was on was from NYC to Disney World in Florida.  We drove all the way there.  It was my family, which consists of my parents and younger brother and my best friend's family which also consists of four people.  So there were eight of us in this huge van.  SO much fun we listened to music, played road games i.e. I Spy.  We also had a tv in the van so we had brought our play station along and played Simpson's Road Rage.  Good times lol

What was the longest road trip you ever went on? How did you pass the time?

It really all depends. I mean, the longest trip I remember is the trip my mom, Angie (my godmom) and I took to Florida to visit my aunt. I remember that we drove all day and a lot of the night. It was awful for me, cause I'd never been forced to sit still for that long. I don't remember much from the drive down (or the drive home), but I remember sleeping a lot, lots of coloring books and playing never-ending games of ISPY. I also learned at this time that if you spy a car that gets on an exit ramp/falls behind/speeds ahead, you can't just pretend the car was never there.

More recently, however, as the Florida trip was....about a decade ago? More recently, I've gone to Sedalia, Missouri and Newton, Kansas.

Newton was always on a bus with a couple dozen choir kids. I was usually listening to music or messing around on my laptop. Writing, playing Solitaire, etc. On the way back, more music, more writing/Solitaire, and usually a short nap or two. .... Until the bus decided to eat me. And it did. ... Twice.

Sedalia is different. It's usually my mom, my brother and I. I'm always in shotgun for the first thirty minutes or so. Just until we get out of the nasty traffic and construction-snarled Triangle here in Kansas. then I'm either in shotgun or I'm driving. Mom and I usually sing. Ben Folds. Ben Folds Five. Cake. Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog. Sometimes even Cinema bizarre or Tokio Hotel. My brother's in back either singing or messing with his ipod. Sometimes though, we just talk.

When Ang is with us (and with Ang, we also have Caine), the boys play games/talk/listen to music, mom and Ang talk/listen to music, and I sing to the music, listen to my own music, or write using my ipod. ^^

But Ang and Caine are moving up here. Possibly starting this Wednesday. Or Friday. So. Maybe no more trips to Sedalia? And since I'm in college, I don't go to Newton anymore. My longest drive is.... 5-ish to the new house? Or the library? 10-ish to Wynadotte County Park? 40 to Baldwin City (summertime....no need to go to Baldwin)?

The most awful road trip I've been on was one to northern California (like near the Oregon border) from Texas (north of Dallas/Fort Worth, right on Red River)  There was myself and my younger brother, my mom and step-dad, my aunt and uncle.  We used my aunt and uncle's station wagon.  My brother and I had to sit in the tiny little back compartment in a seat that sat backwards.  Every couple hours or so the car overheated and we had to put water in it.  We didn't stop to sleep, just laid down the seat and stuck a foam mattress over it so everyone could take turns sleeping.  Finally, in Flagstaff Arizona we had to stop for the night and got a part for the car.  I can't remember if that really helped or not.

Needless to say, I will never forget that trip.

I didn't have those options at the time, though. I passed the time by haggardly staring out the window or pretending to sleep so no one bothered me.

In 2006, I went on a two month cross-country trip. The first two weeks were spent in Albuquerque with my then-lover.

From there, we went to Arizona together, camping at the Verde River Hot Springs, hanging out in Sedona, him teaching me to drive stick-shift in the parking lot of this school, driving up to Prescott National Forest (which at the time had been quite ravaged by wildfires).

From there, I went to sunny California, meeting up with my ex-roommate Toby, staying at his place in Moro Bay, drinking bloody mary's on the beach with old school hippies, riding his mother's bike up and down the hilly roads (loathing every minute of those hills).

From there, I went to San Francisco. It was an experience.

Then it was off to Colorado, Denver first, sleeping on top of a parking garage with a bunch of random kids, getting drunk and hanging out in the park with the giant aliens (http://lh5.ggpht.com/_EnpsOOJCC7U/SwR5Sdc_bsI/AAAAAAAADxk/sy6meo8s6PQ/Expensive-Aliens.jpg).

From there, I hitchhiked into the Routt National Forest for the Rainbow Gathering. Stayed there for ten days, and from there, back to Denver to gather my senses.

From Denver, I rolled into Santa Fe, NM, to meet back up with my then-lover, who had since rented a house in Santa Fe. Stayed there for another week or so, hiking in the mountains, hanging out at this awesome Spa, visiting St. John's College (drooling over the school, balking at the tuition).

And then I came back to Buffalo, where I was living at the Bird House at the time, and regretted coming back very deeply.

This past time going back to New Mexico, I really wish I didn't have to leave.

In May 2006 I flew out to San Diego and drove back to Virginia Beach with my then-boyfriend, who was moving from the West Coast to live with me. We stayed in a hilariously outdated dive in Las Vegas, saw the Hoover Dam and the Grand Canyon, drove through some freaky weather in Texas and Oklahoma, and were charmed by the hills of West Virginia. He did most of the driving, and I read Memoirs of a Geisha, but the best way to pass the time was just enjoying the landscape we traveled through. I'm so glad I got to make the trip with him, because we had so much fun, and I got to see places I'd only ever read about. I was amazed by how varied and beautiful my country is.

Wow. This question comes right after I just took one of the longest road trips: 5 states in ~12 hours, twice over the weekend, going to West Virginia from Georgia and back again to see my son graduate high school.
(Yep, I'm home and safe, and feeling better after having sleep because yesterday? Exhausted.)

The longest road trip, though, was moving from Delaware to Texas. Took at least three days, but I think it was four. It was me, my stepfather Mark, and my kids, all crammed in the cab of a relatively spacious U-Haul truck (the biggest size they had, in fact). We mostly passed the time talking; the kids had Gameboys, I think. We would've been able to watch movies, too, but someone had accidentally packed the portable DVD players along with everything else in the back. We sometimes got a bit squirrelly from being cooped up, even with the occasional stop for the bathroom, stretching, and food.

Second longest road trip was the move from Texas here to Georgia. Two days in the second-largest Budget truck. Alex and I talked, made pit stops, etc. On the first day, we stopped to visit my grandfather in Beaumont. Unfortunately, that's the last time I saw him: he passed away the day after I arrived in Atlanta.

I actually kinda took the long route through Flagstaff, AZ; Albuquerque, NM; Abilene, TX; Baton Rouge, LA; Mobile, AL; and then into Clearwater.

I've been on many road trips in my lifetime. I've traveled from the West Coast of the US to Alberta Canada to visit family. I've gone from Oregon to Missouri and back. The Oregon to California trip more times than I can count, not to mention California to British Columbia. Cars are my preferred mode of travel. There is so much to see, we miss so much flying over the country.

I just returned from an 18 hour road trip. My husband two of our five grown children, my sister and two of her grown children all drove to visit my father who just had open heart surgery. We traveled in three separate cars. My husband and kids had the music blaring in our car, while we would watch videos, play games or talk. My sister and I spent most of the time reminiscing about all the road trips when we were growing up, when there weren't iPods, cell phones, or even tape players in cars.

Back then we would play I spy, or battleship, or mom would have papers that she would draw dots on and we had to draw a line joining the dots and making boxes. We'd also stop and visit some of the most interesting places: The Grand Canyon, Mesa Verde, The Royal Gorge bridge, the Truman and Eisenhower museums, Calgary....

I miss those days. These days trips are based on need, with the price of gas being outrageous. But then, what we paid for gas on this trip wouldn't have even bought one airline ticket, and the memories created are priceless.

Writer's Block: Taking it on the road

What was the longest road trip you ever went on? How did you pass the time?
That would be our honeymoon trip from Boston to the Poconos in Pennsylvania. We spent the time taking photos of the Fall foliage, and interesting sights (like an Amish buggy) and talking about the wedding and the fun of our reception.

The longest road trip I've taken would be from here in Springfield to Brookfield, Wisconsin.  Last year was when I did this.  With my friends for Special Olympics, I rode to Bloomington, Illinois on our bus.  After my events, my parents and I drove from Bloomington, Illinois all the way to Brookfield, Wisconsin.  On the day of the trip, we got rained on when we were on our way out of Illinois.  The rain didn't last long, but we to a bathroom break midway to Wisconsin.  On the leg of the trip going to Wisconsin, as well as travelling to Bloomingto, I napped.

Haaahahahahaha. Straight drive from Maine to Florida, there and back. 24 hours each way. On the way down we went through every Apples to Apples card and spoke in funny voices and tried to watch Snakes on a Plane and some other movies. The way back was pretty quiet.

The week after buying my delSol back in 1996, Ben and I hit the road north with no plans on where to go and a week of time off.  It was our second wedding anniversary week.  We ended up heading up the 101 and Hiway 1 and got as far as the Muir Woods just north of the Golden Gate bridge.  We stopped in San Louis Obisbo, Monterey and San Francisco.   Spent most of my time either driving my new sports car or taking photos of the beautiful scenery.

Что может быть романтичного в мировой столице торгашества, ростовщичества и двуличия ...
Ну разве что Виндзорский замок

The longest road trip was taken with my daughter. It was about six or so years ago and we drove from Ft. Lauderdale to Louisville, Kentucky and back with a stay over in Atlanta. She was attending a national chicken BBQ contest and I was attended a national conference afterwards. We are both music lovers so we put together loads of music and listened to all of it several times. We also played several rounds of the alphabet game, quized her on chicken facts (on the way up) and talked about everything under the sun. Best trip ever.

Пока что это поездки в Канев длиной в пару часов. В дороге обычно трындим или дрыхнем. Разве что один раз было приключение с поломанной машиной, когда мы просидели несколько часов при -15, пока не нашли эвакуатор. Было "весело", да.

Writer's Block: Going boldly

If you could be any Star Trek character, who would you be, and why?

This one is easy. Uhura. Why? Because she totally kicks butt. She is super smart, can speak a bunch of languages, know her way around a circuit board, is handy with a blade, can wrangle a bridge full of males and can wrap a Vulcan around her pinky all while having fabulous hair and nails.

That would have to be the big trip from South Dakota to Texas, leaving the family nest to start college. Since I was going alone I was pretty busy driving. But I was caught up in the happy thoughts about all that coed sex I was going to be having and getting ready to be my own man in the world. Ha ha, the big joke was on me. Yeah, that was a funny one.

When I was a kid we drove, every summer,  to Maine.  It was great!  At first we used to break it up and stop halfway.  But after a few years we drove straight through.  600 miles, 12 hours, yeah it was difficult.  My grandfather one year bough presents for my sister and I.  They were travel games and whatnot.  He wrapped each of them up and had them in a big plastic bag.  Every 100 miles that we behaved we received a gift.  

This year my husband, children, and I will be driving from NY to CA.  Our trip will be about 3000 miles.  Now THATS a road trip!  We plan on buying those TVs that hoook on the back of the seat for them to watch DVDs on.  Not sure how well they'll behave but it's an idea.  I might also do what my grandfather did.  *shrugs**

Writer's Block: Taking it on the road

When I was a child, we went to Florida many times. Mostly, it was about 22 hours or we would spend the night at the South of The Boarder hotel in South Carolina. But one time, we went for about 18 hours straight. I don't remember what we did, as I was under 10 at the time, but we probably talked and listened to the radio. I personally don't mind road trips, so long as there's good music, good food and good company. Now that I have one, having my netbook with me so that I could read books would be great too.
