Just a point of comparison here.

The original:




The more recent song that samples the original:




The song that realizes it's trendy and imitates the remix:


Still, though, I do quite enjoy Gloria Estefan's new album. I bought it and I usually don't buy things unless I really want it. Jus' sayin'.

Why must we drive?

Today's horoscope:

Everyone sees you as a person who's ready for anything, which is a wonderful reputation to have. But deep down, do you fear that you may someday come across something that intimidates and paralyses you? Today you may feel like you've met your match, but all you need to do is take a deep breath, roll up your sleeves and dive right in! It's known as the 'fake it until you make it' maneuver -- and it's a darn good way to introduce new things into your life (and boost your confidence).


Damn, I hate care repairs. Seriously, hate care repairs. I mean, I've been sitting here at the dealership since 8:30 in the morning and the repairs won't be done for another few hours. It costs money that I don't have and extends a much larger amount of patience than I'd like to engage in. Jus' sayin'. I wish California had a much more reliable form of public transportation. Le sigh.

Creative People

"Common sense means living in the world as it is today; but creative people are people who don't want the world as it is today but want to make another world." -- Abraham Maslow

The World Wants You Up at 6am.

I think I've been fighting my own nature just a bit. I've been trying very hard to get up early in order to finish work and the like, but I only seem to want to work when it gets dark. Right around 9 o'clock, I start settling down at the desk with an urge to sip coffee and write. Perhaps I should embrace this rather than fight it? Perhaps my difficulty working this semester is closely related to being forced to teach at 9am? Next semester ain't better, though. I'm scheduled to teach at 8am. I could, at least, give myself a schedule where I won't be getting out of class at 10pm, right? Fingers crossed.

A-Learnin' and A-Growin'

Horoscope for today:

The fastest way to learn something new about yourself is by exploring something that is unknown to you. This could be something universally intimidating, like skydiving, but it could also be something that is harmless to many but still a big question mark to you. It can be difficult to accept the fact that you could try something and not succeed at it right away. Check your ego at the door and dive into learning something new about your capabilities.

Exploration time? But-but-but. . . I like doing it right the first time. Failure makes me feel bad.
