Music:Do It Again
November 9, 2007

It’s Friday! Lets dance!!!
I’ve been hearing this dance/house/techno song (unsure of the precise genre) out and about lately in the hip spots where the fly kats hang out. It makes me wanna shake my bootay. The video is funny too…

“Do It Again” by The Chemical Brothers:

Music: Shape of My Heart
November 6, 2007

I’ve been listening to this song a lot lately…
This is an old (1993) song by Sting that I love called “Shape of My Heart”. Of course the guy is timeless, so the song sounds as fresh and thought provoking as anything I’ve heard in a while. The lyrics are below–take pause and savor this song. Also, if you click the “Read the rest of this entry »” link after the lyrics, there is a second video of some cool card trickery in sync with the  lyrics of the song…

Lyrics:
He deals the cards as a meditation,
And those he plays never suspect.
He doesn’t play for the money he wins,
He doesn’t play for the respect.

He deals the cards to find the answer
The sacred geometry of chance.
The hidden law of probable outcome
The numbers lead a dance…

Chorus
I know that the spades are the swords of a soldier,
I know that the clubs are weapons of war,
I know that diamonds mean money for this art,
But thats not the shape of my heart…

He may play the jack of diamonds,
He may lay the queen of spades,
He may conceal a king in his hand,
While the memory of it fades…

Repeat Chorus (above)

And if I told you that I loved you,
Youd maybe think there’s something wrong.
Im not a man of too many faces,
The mask I wear is one.

Those who speak know nothing,
And find out to their cost,
Like those who curse their luck in too many places,
And those who fear are lost.

Repeat Chorus (above)
