It's Scary In Here!

Do you ever get stuck inside your head?  I do, far too often.  It's like walking an endless spiraling staircase.  See what I did there with the visual aide...pretty nice.  I'm currently not working and haven't in a while.  It's really worn on me, because it's not for the lack of trying.  I just happen to live in one of those states (Rhode Island), where it's been difficult.  So, I get down and stuck in my head.  This is what I see when I'm there...

Warning: Harsh Language

Gunnery Sgt. Hartman yells at me when I'm feeling really depressed or down.  This will be like a self-analysis or sitting in on a therapy session.  Or as comedian Maria Bamford would call them, "The-Rapist."  Think about it, it's brilliant.

When I'm trying to cheer myself up...I think about things like this.

This video just has everything.  Dweezil and Ahmet Zappa, who should have their own show.  They are two of the funniest people I've ever seen.  They did have a show in the late 90's, but it didn't work out.  John Tesh, trying to rock, is so funny, I don't even know what to say about it.  He plays "easy listening, Yanni-type" music!  The Zappa's running on stage like they're going to open Christmas presents.  Last, but not least, you get to see Ahmet dance.  That's usually enough for me right there.

Then I start thinking about "obscure" one-hit wonders.

Love this song.  Charlie Sexton was 16 yrs old when he recorded this.  Amazing.  The record label tried to get him to be a teen-idol.  It didn't work.  This song is also featured in one of the most underrated movies of the 80's, Some Kind Of Wonderful.

Then my mind will wander into something like this:

So, thanks for visiting my mind.  It's Scary In Here, most of the time.  But, like you...I'm just trying to get through the day, everyday.  You know...Wash...Rinse...Repeat.  I'm just having one of those days.  It's easier and cheaper to come to the blog than go anywhere else.  Also, it's about the same as far as results go, too.  Cheers!

  1. Im in the same boat as you (even live on a lake) when it comes to being unemployeed (Tennessee) I've been out of work for a little over 2yrs, thankfully my husband earns enough that it doesn,t present a problem. Blogging has really helped me also, helps give me a good laugh to start my day, no matter how bad it may be.

    There are days when my head feels like its empty...completely empty... void of information, knowledge, etc...these kinda days make me feel useless to everyone around me.

    Sooo.... I enjoyed visiting your mind... hang in there and remember that there are more of us in that boat, crossing that lake, than you realize, and one of these days we'll all make it to the other side, just don't rock the damn thing, cause I can't swim that far! (:
