Anesthetic Drums

I'm through gutting myself over lost loves. But just like many others I cherish a few reminders of how good those lost things felt. Before they were lost, that is. Strains seep through the auditory senses tugging at the heartstrings, and my neurotic self suck in the misery and sorrow. It's so bloody mental I could not cry anymore. Here's Roxette emphasizing "it's over now." I agree it is and it must have been...yeah. The intro drums and cymbals are anesthetic (reason this is my main choice for MM Heartbreaker theme this week)

or here's Michael Johnson with something mellow

I hope none of these made you pull out the tissues. I don't want you to :)

I think I wore out my Pretty Woman soundtrack back in the 90s. I loved it.

I hadn't heard that MJ song before. Nice choice. Is nice the right word when your talking about sad songs? LOL

Happy Musical Monday...I think.
Diane said…
havent heard that first song in a long time! good choice!

never heard the second one. also great!
Hazel said…
Run and Diane, really? I thought you guys there heard DOORS first as MJ is an American. He is also known as the guy who sang Bluer than blue, sadder than sad.... he toured with John Denver in the late 60s, an info I just found out a few minutes ago. Another name he hang out with is George Benson :)
That Roxette song has some great memories behind it for me. I LOVE Pretty Woman too! Hadn't heard the other song before. Great picks for MM!

Weekend Snapshot: The AIDS Temple (Lopburi I)

It is sometimes referred to as the AIDS Museum, I tend to call it AIDS Temple. Descriptively it is a buddhist hospice for AIDS patients, the largest one in Thailand. Three of us, a friend, my son and I paid Wat (temple) Phrabat Nampu in Lopburi a visit last weekend. As it is where people with AIDS go to to die, most of what we saw are not exactly the ones I'm in a hurry to show off. But if you are curious, you may want to click on a post I did days ago. Anyway, on with shots that I don't think will give anyone a coronary:

100 steps to the wat
After the climb this is where you arrive at

"View from the top" - those are bare cornfields visitors pass by on their way to the temple

Side view of the Life Museum which ironically displays mummies

A usual sight around Thai temples

Bone sculptures

The temple bell

Life is beautiful. Most of us would prefer that of course. AIDS is also real.


The Rumford is a much more efficient way to heat a room than earlier fireplaces....(Wikipedia on Benjamin Thompson, Count Rumford, designer of tall, shallow fireplaces which are now known as the Rumford, was an Anglo-American physicist known for his investigations of heat)Living in the tropics, I have been in close proximity with only three fireplaces in my life. There was an unused one in the home of my college professor in the Philippines. The other one from which I could feel the heat and see the fire dancing was in a hotel lobby in the Yorkshire Moors. Picture taking was quick. Two old ladies were having tea by it, but that was my first ever real fireplace experience, and I loved it. The latest I have touched is the one in Jane Austen's imaginary Northanger Abbey.
The fireplace, where she had expected the ample width and ponderous carvings of former times, was contracted to a Rumford, with slabs of plain though handsome marbles, and ornament over it of the prettiest English ch…

Honor, Awards and a Game

Tuesday Couch Potatoes: Made of Honor
Awards and a Game/Meme follow. Please scroll down a bit.

My pick for this week's TCP theme (wedding movie) is Made of Honor. I like the humor in it. We've all been to several weddings but how many of us can say I've been to one in which the maid of honor was a he? The scene which particularly cracked me up is when the priest mistook the maid of honor for a gay man =) If you're familiar with some of my likes, you'd know why I also love the Scotland location of the wedding. For more of the synopsis click here; and here's the trailer:

My super duper bloggy friend Thom of Thom's Place for Well Whatever and fellow Mom Tetcha of Pensive Thoughts awarded me this Beautiful Blogger award. I have to list seven things about me so here they are:

1. I love wearing jeans more than skirts.
2. One of my favorite colors is purple.
3. I don't mind spending sunrise…
