Sacrifice

It was announced today that members of the Canadian Forces serving overseas in Afghanistan, civilians reporting to the Canadian Forces and allied forces are eligible in receiving a medal to honour combat casualties.

It’s a great idea and I was surprised nothing was commissioned when this ordeal in Afghanistan started back in 2001 thanks to our Yankee friends down south.  These people go through some real shit a lot of us don’t go through.  They put their lives on the line to help rebuild peoples lives and futures while they get shit on constantly putting up with IEDs, shrapnel, shit heads shooting at them and blowing themselves up while we waste away in LaLa Land.

There’s Something About Us…

…another masterpiece by the dynamic duo of Daft Punk

Smooth and soothing blips and bleeps of electric and bass guitars accompanied by something like a Korg or Roland synthesizer to fuse the ultimate electronic love ballad. Add some sangria, a beach with the sun setting and you’ve got the ultimate sunset soundtrack. Don’t forget those sunglasses and to pull out some lawn chairs for you and your lady friend.

    Daft Punk – Something About Us

It might not be the right time
I might not be the right one
But there’s something about us I want to say
Cause there’s something between us anyway

I might not be the right one
It might not be the right time
But there’s something about us I’ve got to do
Some kind of secret I will share with you

I need you more than anything in my life
I want you more than anything in my life
I’ll miss you more than anyone in my life
I love you more than anyone in my life

Right Click and Save As – Daft Punk – Something About Us
I’d encourage you to buy their album Discovery.

And before I forget, I’d also like to dedicate this wonderful work of art to an amazing person which I seldom get to ever see. And when I do get to see you, you put a smile on my face and raise my spirits beyond belief.

I Forgot…

…that I might see so many beautiful things.

Got up early, found something’s missing my only name.
No one else sees but I got stuck, and soon forever came.
Stopped pushing on for just a second, then nothing’s changed.
Who am I this time, where’s my name? I guess it crept away.

No one’s calling for me at the door.
And unpredictable won’t bother anymore.
And silently gets harder to ignore.

I forgot that I might see so many beautiful things.

Take this happy ending away, it’s all the same.
God won’t waste this simplicity on possibility.
Get me up, wake me up, dreams are filling this trace of blame.
Frozen still I thought I could stop, now who’s gonna wait.

No one’s calling for me at the door.
And unpredictable won’t bother anymore.
And silently gets harder to ignore.

Look straight ahead, there’s nothing left to see.
What’s done is done, this life has got it’s hold on me.
Just let it go, what now can never be.

So many beautiful things…

Now what do I do can I change my mind. Did I think things through?
It was once my life. It was my life at one time

I forgot that I might see so many beautiful things.
I forgot that I might need to find out what life could bring.
