What’s that famous Bush Jr saying? “There’s an old saying in Tennessee â€” I know it’s in Texas, probably in Tennessee â€” that says, fool me once, shame on â€” shame on you. Fool me â€” you can’t get fooled again.”
There’s something missing from world. That something is when people say they will do something and then they either don’t or pretend they were doing something else. If there is something about how connected people are in the digital age of social networking, is that it’s harder than ever to lie about something and get away with it. Especially when you can’t control other people’s actions of taking pictures, recording, or even repeating something.
There are people that I really like having in my life, but when I’m getting told one thing and then seeing and hearing another it’s downright insulting. I’m happy that some people that I keep close to me are going to remain there. But there are roughly five people that I can say that it will be good to let go.
The flip side is that there have been some good things finally coming toward my corner and I’m excited for the changes they will bring. I will start to out them when they come to fruition.
In other worldly news, in reference to my post yesterday… The iPad is now out. All the hype that came into the coming months of what was going to be Apple’s shining moment of a tablet computer kinda ended with an initial thought of nah, that changed into – I could see this being useful. While I can imagine why I would justify getting an iPad, it won’t be until I put some time in at an Apple store playing around with one. I could see it replacing my lappy. But the key is how well the touchscreen keyboard works. I say that now as my lappy has been relegated to browsing the web, dealing with email, watching media, and writing a book. All stuff the iPad looks like it can do. Though will it do it as efficiently? That is the question. We shall see. I will say it seems pretty sexy for a device.
So can music make you feel like a fool? Can music be sexy? The answer to both is yes. Can it be both in a song? Hmmmmm, I don’t know about that.
Now that I think about it, yes I believe it can. The best example of it I can think of is the song you’re listening to right now (if you’re at the website). It’s Lovefool by The Cardigans. A sexy vocal about being a fool in love and a vibe that gives that feeling of being bit foolish. And so it is. Sexy and fool in the same song.
I really like the faux reggae feel in the keyboard part. The listless vocal that gives me a feeling of longing, despite the fact it’s a girl singing something we can all relate to at some point.
Go forth and don’t be afraid to be thought the fool, it might very well be sexy!
