Song for Insomniacs (and people thinking about friendship)

Because of some information I got today about somebody else entirely, I felt compelled to check all available Google sources to ensure that there are no songs out there about Julies other than those by Bobby Sherman and Leo Kottke.

It appears, happily, that I am homefree and even more happily, I discovered Julie Doiron.

Me and My Friend



You Canadians. You know you rock. Out loud.

Oh thanks. Now I've got "Julie Julie Julie do you love me?" stuck in my head.

Well?
I'm glad there are no other songs about Julies and that you were able to get some sleep after that :)

Great songs. My first time hearing.

"Julie, Julie, Julie, do you love me?

Julie, Julie, Julie, do you care?

Julie, Julie, are you thinkin' of me?

Julie, Julie, will you still be there?"


Sorry. I couldn't help it.

I hope we can still be friends.

Jeff, well if it wasn't stuck in my head before (that song----which I paid a hypnotist lots of money to block forever---KIDDING!) it is now after Gunfighter!

Well what? You want an apology? At least I only mentioned the dude's name, not even the song title or lyrics LOL!

Or wait, maybe you want an answer? Of course I love you! You are listed in my Reader after all! What better declaration could there be? And please do not let the fact that there are 115 other people in that Reader who I also love detract from the meaning.

Heidi, I hope you liked the new tunes!

Flutter, no doubt!

Gunfighter, after that little serenade? HUMPH! Okay who am I kidding. You stay in the Reader. :)
Yay! She DOES love me!!!

There's also "Hey Julie," by Fountains of Wayne.

I was ridiculously happy when I discovered this song.

Enjoy!

Julie Doiron was also in an amazing band called Eric's Trip, who were from where I'm living now. I loved them, esp her voice in early high school, and in a weird coincidence, I now live about a block away from the contact address listed on the album.

I should go figure out what house it is now that I'm thinking about it.

My point is, YES! She RULES!

A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Quorum

After being confronted with written evidence, Julie admits that she is a total attention whore. In some things, in some ways, sometimes I look outward for validation of my worth and existence. I admit it. It's my weak spot, my vanity spot . If you say I am clever, comment on a post, offer me an award, mention me on your blog, reply to a comment I left on your blog, or in any way flatter me as a writer...I am hopelessly, slavishly devoted to you. I will probably even add you to my blogroll just so everyone can see the list of all the cool kids who actually like me . The girl, she knows she is vain in this regard , but after much vanity discussion and navel-gazing , she has decided to love herself anyway, as she is (ironically) and will keep searching for (1) internal validation and (2) her first person . Until I reach a better point of self-actualization, though, may I just say that this week you people have been better than prozac and chocolate (together, with a side of whi

In defense of vanity...I think

Do you have one of those issues where you argue with yourself? Where you just aren't sure what you actually think because there are so many messages and opinions on the topic around you? I have more than one like this. However, there is one topic that has been struggling to the top of my mind recently: vanity and perceived vanity. Can vanity be a good thing? Vanity has historically been truly reviled. Vanity is number seven of the Seven Deadly Sins. It's the doppleganger of number seven on the Seven Holy Virtues list: humility. There are many moralistic tales of how vanity makes you evil and brings about a spectacular downfall. Consider the lady who bathed in the blood of virgins to maintain her youth. Google Borgia+vanity and find plenty. The Brothers Grimm and Disney got in on the act too. The Disney message seems to be: the truly beautiful don't need to be vain. They are just naturally eye-catchingly gorgeous. And they are all gorgeous. Show me the Reubenesque Pr

Is your name yours? How your name affects your success...

Made by Andrea Micheloni Not too long ago I read What's in a name? by Veronica Mitchell. She'd read the NPR/USA Today article, Blame it on your name , that shared new research results: "a preference for our own names and initials — the 'name-letter effect' — can have some negative consequences." Veronica's post and that article got me thinking about names, and their importance. Changing to my husband’s name and shedding my maiden name was no love lost for me. By the time we married, I’d have gladly married any other name just for a change. My maiden name was a trial; I was sick of spelling it, pronouncing it, explaining it, and dealing with the thoughtless rude comments about it. My sister and I dreamed and planned for the day we could shed that name. So I wonder, sometimes, whether I adequately considered what a name change would actually mean. Heritage and genealogy matter to me and my maiden name reflected a great deal of familial history. Histo
