I had a chat this morning with a former girlfriend. We still talk as it was something we could always do. I don’t know what the health basis of a friendship with an ex is, but there are a few that I can still talk to as a friend and I think it’s good in order to get advice on things. It can help us grow. I know that goes against the grain of certain philosophies.
However, as I was typing which I’m often to do here on a daily basis, I had a chat about something I’ve been dealing with. I learned something today that I didn’t know. That is, when someone you know shares their daily schedule with you, it’s a sign of sincerity. That they do care about you. Especially when they lay out their schedule for you without asking. I had no idea. I was always under the impression it was some sort of way to say, I’m too busy for you. Maybe there are times that it is the case. I don’t know. But from what I gathered today, it’s really an act of saying, I care about you, please know that I’m busy.
Which is what leads me to think about Caroline Spine again. Work Song is primarily about a guy stuck in a 9 to 5 life having to work nights and weekends. Obviously not a goal that so many people want. All work and no play isn’t fun. In the case of said friend, it’s a matter of a school schedule that is intense. I suppose that’s how graduate school is. The question is, this person was talking about wanting to find a balance between school/work/fun, will they be able to do it?
As for the song, it takes off at an uptempo pace with a ripping guitar riff. The drums kick in pulsing with a solid backbeat and boom off you race with a rapid fire set of lyrics describing the whole day that repeats over and over. The monotony is what can kill ya, right?
I bet we’re all starting to feel like we’ve been locked into additional work as of late. Thank that government bailout for it. We’ll be paying out the nose for all those failing corps that won’t share a dime of that profit. This is the soundtrack for insanity. Go get it now!
