It's just gorgeous up here right now, it's really amazing when the sun is shining. To celebrate, here's some good sunny morning music :
Roy Ayers - Everybody Loves The Sunshine ; this is a something from my past, and it's just so hillariously goofy and funky, it has to put you in a good mood.
Good Mornin' - Singing in the Rain ; it's great to stay up late.
Morning's Here - Friends ; sunshine is here, coffee's here, breakfast is here! This one's particularly good because you can just improv your own words and sing about whatever you're looking forward to. Wow that sentence was straight out of Mister Rogers.
I used to watch Friends just for the smoking hot chicks (and also because I am a sad lonely sucker and I needed some television friends to keep me company) - I never expected anything actually funny from it, so when it did actually have something funny it was just like pure bonus, pure gravy, added value if you will.
I watched a bit of Charlie Brooker's Screenwipe. It's both good and bad. It's totally what I think, it's almost like watching myself ranting about Television (though, granted, he has better comic delivery), which is good in that I agree and sympathize, but bad in that I already get way too much of my own opinion already (I'm quite fed up with myself, I've had all I can stand and I can't stands no more!). As soon as I heard the Grandaddy theme song and heard him ranting about Lost I knew we were soul mates. (WTF how can you people watch Lost - random is not the same as myterious or complex).
BTW let's not get carried away by how nice it is up here when the weather's good. Saying "it's nice when the weather's good" is a statement with no content - good weather provides it's own inherent niceness; it's like saying "it's nice when it's nice". Yes, yes it is. I mean, fucking Norway is lovely when the weather's good (I hear the summer there is quite pleasant). That doesn't mean it's a good place to live. You have to always put into the equation how *often* is it good, and how bad is it when it's bad? *Most* places on earth are nice in either the summer or the spring. It's nothing to brag about. It always makes me LOL when people talk about what's great about where they live. The typical list of things people brag about :
"It's nice in the spring/summer" - (aka "it's nice when it's nice" , no shit sherlock).
"People are nice here" - (really? you somehow selected for nice people? People are pretty much the same everywhere, they just have different conventions about how flowery to be with their greetings).
"We have the XX" (insert local sports franchise in XX) - Hmm, I'm sure no other city has sporting franchises. And I'm not really sure how that greatly improves your quality of life anyway.
