My Life in Music

Ever since I was a kid, I have always felt a very strong connection to music. I don’t really know why, maybe because I can appreciate a well written story and music is nothing more then a story sung to a catchy beat.

I am not alone in this line of thinking, millions of people across the world feel a strong connection to music. No matter where I am at any given point and time in my life, there are numerous songs that speak exactly what I am feeling inside. It makes me wonder how half of the world’s song writers aren’t even more medicated then they already are….

I heard this song Can You Tell by Ra Ra Riot last weekend and downloaded it from iTunes on the spot via iPhone.

Lyrics to Can You Tell :

Oh baby baby baby babe,
How long am I supposed to wait?
I think about you nightly
Oh, can you tell I’m losin’ sleep?

Oh what am I supposed to do?
It’s hard to stay cool.
Oh, when you smile at me
and I can notice every time you speak.

My bed’s too big for just me
and when you turn your eyes,
I promise I won’t care.

Oh baby baby baby babe
Oh baby baby baby please
My head sinks to my knees.
Oh baby baby don’t you know
I think about you nightly?

My bed’s too big for just me
and when you turn your eyes,
I promise I won’t care.

Oh baby baby baby babe
I think about you nightly
I think about you nightly
Oh baby baby baby baby

Oh baby baby baby babe.
When I look in your eyes
I tend to lose my thoughts
Don’t forget your stare
Or what was that you said?
Would you let me know?
‘Cause I can’t read your mind
But can you tell I can’t even explain

Oh baby baby baby babe
I think about you nightly
I think about you nightly
Oh baby baby baby
I think about you nightly

Oh baby I can’t even explain
How long am I supposed to wait?
I think about you nightly
Oh can you tell I’m losin’ sleep?

Oh baby, what am I supposed to do?
It’s hard to stay cool.
Oh when you smile at me
and I can notice every time you speak.

Oh baby baby baby babe
I think about you nightly
Oh baby baby baby babe

Yea, I would say that pretty much sums up my life these days.

Move is COMPLETE!

Just wanted to give everyone a big hello ::cue echos::!

After a long wait and many days of deliberation, I have completed my migration from www.tek-nics.com to www.mikethis.com. In the coming days tek-nics.com will be directed here and the content will no longer be accessible (no worries though, it all resides here now).

Mike, but why did you give up on tek-nics?

To be honest, this is an easy question. I wanted a personal blog that wasn’t very nicknamish…..

I have had that other domain and nickname for quite a long time (early 2000) and I just felt like I outgrew it and wanted a more “grown-up” place to call my own – a “new house” if you will. I won’t ever let the domain expire though – sentimental value.

But WHY MikeTHIS?

Ha – like everything else in my web-life, my good friend Chris talked me into swindling MikeW out of this domain because he was just sitting on it. Chris and I have become pretty close friends over the years and just thought it would be humorous to have a similar domain name for our bloggy blogs. Not really too much of a story there I guess.

What can we expect out of MikeTHIS?

Another good question (Who is this handsome man doing this interview anyway?). Pretty much the same musings you would find at my original blog – only I plan to blog on just about everything that is annoying me, interests me or just needs to be blogged about. I want to show off my word wizardry from time to time – so why not shout out into the vast emptiness that is the intarweb for that deep down feel goodness we have all come to know and love?
