Title Of the Post

First sentence of the first paragraph of the post. :)

There's not going to be much here (I have to get ready for work), but I've been wanting to use this title for a while now (at least since yesterday around 2 pm). It reminds me of the song Title of the Song by the group Da Vinci's Notebook, which unfortunately seems to no longer exist (I never found the hidden picture on their splash/redirect page, but I didn't try very hard). That was one hilarious song; at least the part I heard (I only have the sample portion that they made available back when their website, and their group, was working). Note: they do have some potentially questionable content in their albums, so consider yourself warned. But "Title of the Song" was very, very funny. It went something like this (at least the part I recall), in a grand, boy-band style:

Title of the Song
by Da Vinci's Notebook
Declaration of my feelings for you
Elaboration of those feelings
Description of how long these feelings have existed
Belief that no one else could feel the same as I

Reminiscence of the pleasant times we shared
And our relationship's perfection
Recounting of the steps that led to our love's dissolution
Mostly involving my unfaithfulness and lies

Penitent admission of wrongdoing
Discovery of the depth of my affection
Regret over the lateness of my epiphany

Title of the song
Naive expression of love
Reluctance to accept that you are gone
Request to turn back time
And rectify my wrongs
Repetition of the title of the song
Anyway, this was pretty funny, I thought. Maybe it's just me. (Da Vinci's Notebook: I hope that you aren't upset at my putting a portion of your lyrics on my blog - it's actually free advertising for your CDs; but if you want it removed, just let me know and I'll delete it.)

YouTube is making me sad. If you didn't see the earlier post (What?!), they're already telling me "you're getting old!" Now I notice they're also telling me, "You have no Friends" (you won't see those words, since you have to be logged in as me when viewing my profile, but you'll see, on the page to which I linked, "This user has not added any friends"). Thanks a lot, YouTube! Between that and what I had previously considered a friend's MySpace account ("so and so has to make you a friend before you can view her profile!"), I realize I must be lonelier than I thought. At least virtually lonelier. Out in the real world I feel ok. After all, I'm married to the most beautiful, most wonderful person I know, who happens to be my best friend, girlfriend, etc. all rolled up into my wife!

Oops... now I'm late for work... gotta run!

I have a myspace account. I'll be your friend if you'll be mine. :) I know what you mean. It took a while for me to get a decent line up of friends. I sweated it out there for a bit. Now it bugs me when no one comments on my blogs. That's why I don't have an official blog like you and Dean have - I don't want to look at it every day and realize I'm the only one!

I don't have a myspace account. Maybe that's why I don't have any virtual friends! Perhaps I'll set one up... I do have a FaithFreaks site, but I haven't done anything with it.

You should start a blog, though... I'll read it! :)

Tony M said...

Oh, hey: it says, "Christy said..." instead of "Anonymous said..."! Congrats! :)

Christy said...

yeah, I thought I told you that. BTW (I know you don't like the abbreviations, but oh well) now that I have a blogger acct, I have to type even MORE not less to let you know it was me. So, THANKS A LOT!

Tony M said...

Hey... can't you leave yourself signed into blogger so that, when you come back, it already knows who you are? That's what I do; I leave my Google account signed in, even when I reboot the computer, and I don't have to enter my sign-in username or password when I go to my (or Dean's or Amateur's or anyone else's blogs).

The part in this post where it talks about your feelings of being lonely in virtual space reminded me of a blog entry I wrote yesterday, not posted yet, about the same thing. The whole "0 comments" on blog entries is really depressing. It makes you feel alienated from the world and like a virtual loser. So thanks for commenting on my blog and making me feel "alive", and here I am doing the same for you!

Tony M said...

You're welcome for the comment; I've read some of the posts on your blog, and thought about (but haven't actually commented on) several.

"Virtual loser"... heh. I don't really get depressed when I have zero comments. My wife doesn't like it, though, when I scroll down the list of my recent posts saying, "zero comments... zero comments... zero comments..." But is is nice to know that someone's reading what I'm writing, and how better to know than to have someone comment?

Anyway, I'm going to get back to watching "Transformers" now...
