Can’t Fight This Feeling

Ok. I’m am so hooked onto this song by REO Speedwagon. And I really don’t know why. The melody, the lyrics. It gives a sense that maybe, there can be fairytales in reality. Heh. Sounds cheesy, I know. But its true.

The songs of the 1980’s never fail to surprise me. I fall for them, one after another. Yes. I do averagely like the songs of late, but really, they can’t compare to the music of the 80’s. Producing songs like Living On A Prayer, Bohemian Rhapsody, Sometimes When We Touch, Right Here Waiting, This Ain’t A Love Song, Total Eclipse Of The Heart and many more (that saying, I only listed the classic rock ballads), its obvious songs like Baby, Poker Face, Bad Romance, Stereo Hearts, Baby One More Time, Genie In A Bottle, Pumped Up Kicks, and many more falls short of the glory of the 80s. With the exception of a limited one or two, they don’t produce music as good as the 80’s anymore.

I won’t deny, one of the episodes of Supernatural introduced me to this song by REO Speedwagon. And having the character Dean Winchester sing it out acapella, got my attention.

Typical Jensen Ackles is always adorable of course, specially as Dean singing. Heh. =)

But decided to YouTube the entire original song. And dang, I never expected it to hit me like that. Fell in love with the song immediately. Now I have another one to add to my favourite 80’s songs, which is already a VERY long list, if I may say, considering most of my favourite songs are from the 80’s anyway. Heh.

I totally can see myself curling up with this song replaying on my iPod on a cold rainy night. Hee. Can’t help wishing one day, maybe, I’ll have a love story of my own, evolving around this song. *blush*

Drunkard’s Damnation Jamboree

OMG. This song is so wrong in so many ways more than one. And yet I can’t help getting addicted to it. Damn Supernatural Season 6 gag reel. Played during the montage at the end of the video. I have to say, the rhythm and melody is so catchy, it got people asking for the title of the song all over YouTube. And let me just say, this song is NO WHERE near popular or even the slightest bit known, before it appeared on the gag reel. Hence when I YouTube-d it, I only found ONE video that is not Supernatural-related. Lol!

‘Drunkard Damnation Jamboree’ by Swank. (FYI, Swank is a Canadian band, apparently.)

Gotta say, the lyrics mean so bad, specially if a Christian were to understand it. I hope God won’t blast me for actually liking the song. Lol! It does have a happy feel to it, ya know. The kinda music that makes you wanna get up and do the jiggy dance. But the lyrics… Boy……

Drunkard Damnation Jamboree (by Swank)

When the clouds they rain down on your parade,
And wash your float out to the sea,
You’ve reached your bitter end, but brother you’ve got friends,
At the drunkard’s damnation jamboree.

You can find us there drinking the dog’s hair,
Hair of that hound that bit you and me,
Rope and tyin’ em on them doggies gettin’ gone,
At the drunkard’s damnation jamboree.

We’re getting high, high, high, high,
Pickin’, drinkin’ and singin’ songs,
We’re getting bombed, bombed, bombed bombed,
Glad you joined us, the night is long.

Let’s have another round and spread that joyful sound,
We may be dead but you must agree,
Heaven’s not for us, we’re too boisterous,
At the drunkard’s damnation jamboree.

So don’t shed a tear ’cause I wound up here,
Hell ain’t all it’s cracked up to be,
In fact it’s so much more, they got a music store,
At the drunkard’s damnation jamboree.

We’re getting smashed, smashed, smashed, smashed,
Cigars and fruit jars of sour mash,
We’re singin’ songs, songs, songs, songs,
Pour a whisky and sing along.

 We’re getting high, high, high, high,
Pickin’, drinkin’ and singin’ songs,
We’re getting bombed, bombed, bombed bombed,
Glad you joined us, the night is long.

So when the clouds they rain down on your parade,
And wash your float out to the sea,
You’ve reached your bitter end, but brother you’ve got friends,
At the drunkard’s damnation jamboree…
At the drunkard’s damnation jamboree…
At the drunkard’s damnation jamboree…

See what I mean? Heh.
And yes I can’t help loving the song… Urgh!
Lol!

Brand New Old iPod

After a year of accidentally ‘misplacing’ my iPod, it popped up suddenly today. Made me damn happy. Finally, I don’t have to rely fully on my iPhone for songs. Not that I really mind using the iPhone for songs, but its just that, I don’t put all the songs into the phone, probably only bout 500, where else on my iPod, I sync all the songs there, which is in 4 digits figure. Hee! Blissful!

But lo behold! When I connected it to the wifi, 49 app updates greeted me. I deleted 4 apps that I no longer use, And I have 45 app updates left. How productive.20120523-123530.jpgSat in gym, nearly 45 minutes trying to get it all updates. Gave up after that. Went home, updated the OS, and behold, revert everything to factory settings. Cleared the entire iPod. Very effective way to get rid of the updates. Lol! Doesn’t matter to me though. Sync all the songs back in, the videos, and that’s sufficient for me. *happy*

Dinner @ CHEERS

20120517-114227.jpgAngie recommended us to CHEERS Restaurant & Bierhaus for Imee’s belated birthday dinner last night. Kinda glad she did. Like the place. Not too fancy, but fancy enough. Lol! Somewhat cozy, and the food is pretty above averaged. Pricing damn reasonable. I’d go as far to say the ‘set lunch’ is really cheap! But we didn’t have that of course. We ordered à la carte for dinner.

20120517-114248.jpgSurprisingly though, they gave us this ‘Vegetable Soup’ complementary even when there’s no set dinners available. I actually secretly wondered if its cause they were thinking they probably won’t have many customers coming in on a rainy night, and they soup will be put to waste. Heh.

20120517-114257.jpgWe had the ‘Cheesy Cocktail Sausages’ for appetizers. Not particularly ‘out-of-this-world’ yummy, but the dips is nice. A mix of mayo and cheese I think. Purely sinful. Lol! The sausages were just normal. Think Brussels serves better sausages. =) 20120517-114312.jpgThe birthday girl ordered ‘CHEERS Seafood Platter’. Didn’t really hear her comments on it. But the bite fish she offered me tasted well above averaged. But that’s just apart of the dish. There’s still the mussels (which I’m never a fan of), the prawns, etc etc. Angie had the ‘CHEERS Citrus Smoked Duck Breast’. The sause is somewhat unique. At first I thought it’s with a tinge of lemon. But Angie later corrected me saying its actually with the taste of orange. Hhmmm. A little too sweet for my liking, but other than that, this dish is quite nice. The duck is a little hard to chew on though. Haha.

20120517-114326.jpgI had the ‘CHEERS Seafood Chicken’. This, I can safely say, is incredibly yummy. Think its agreed by Imee and Angie as well. Grilled and baked chicken topped with a layer of cheese and seafood, coated with mandarin orange sauce. Incredible. The taste of all these layers just blends beautifully together. And I gotta say, I’m never a fan od cheese, but the cheese here is just nice. After downing the entire dish, I don’t get the usual ‘jelak’ feeling I get from eating cheese. Lol! I would definitely recommend this to anyone who’s planning to hit CHEERS for a meal. =)

We ordered a ‘Banana Split’ for dessert. I was surprised. At RM 5.90, its like the cheapest ‘Banana Split’ I’ve ever eaten. However, its the first time I’ve ever seen a ‘Banana Split’ being served this way (‘Banana Split’ is usually served in a long horizontal desert bowl).

20120517-114336.jpgI actually find it a little obscene, having it shaking in my face when the waiter tried to place it down on the table. Imee and I burst out laughing on the spot. Angie being the typical naive one in the group, thought it looked like a bunny. Bunny. Something that never even crossed Imee and my mind. Lol!

Ended the night with ‘Savanna Dry Cider’. A drink Melvyn koko recommended me the last time he was back in Penang. Nice.
It was a good night of food, drinks, laughter, gossips and girl talks. And we had fun. Simply nice fun. =) Friends whom we just feel comfortable with, whom we have fun chillin’ with and whom we can chat freely with, are great friends. People to keep for a lifetime. =) It used to be a bigger group. People come, people go. But the 3 of us seems to be the ones that manage to pull through it all. Hee! =)
