Bullet and a Target - Citizen Cope

This week's song recommendation is Citizen Cope's "Bullet and A Target." I was first introduced to Citizen Cope when "Let the Drummer Kick" was used on So You Think You Can Dance. I couldn't get the song out of my head. It was so original. At that time, I could still listen to Launchcast at work, and pulled up his fan station. I was blown away. His sound and his lyrics are so unique. The first time I heard "Bullet and a Target" I fell in love. I ran out immediately and bought the album. Citizen Cope is a blend of rock, hip hop and reggae. A native of Memphis, Tennessee, one can definitely feel the diverse music in culture from that area come through in his music. While "Bullet and a Target" is my recommendation, I cannot claim that it is my favorite Citizen Cope song. It's like picking out a favorite crayon from the 64 count box. Among the amazing songs are "Sideways," "Brother Lee," and "Mandy." If you haven't ever heard him...give him a listen, you will not be disappointed. Speaking of disappointed, the Sooner basketball game was definitely a downer last night. But maybe this happened so the guys will have a break to get ready for the Big Dance. The Spring Game is coming up very soon...yea!!! My fantasy golf team is playing well, but I'm kicking myself for not picking Mickelson. Oh well...there's always next time.

Noises


I'll be honest with you...I'm not a noise person.  Most noises annoy the crap out of me.  I hate the sound of gum being chewed, popped, cracked, etc.  I really don't want to listen to you eat.  Don't even get me started on ice.  But there are some sounds that I love.  They include football pads cracking together, basketball sneakers squeaking on a hardwood court, and basketball ball falling through a hoop.  Those are some of the most comforting noises to me.  I also like to hear the whoosh of a golf club right before it cracks against a ball.  That's cool too.  So, today I enjoyed the noises of my beloved Sooners beating the Raiders.  It was music to my ears.  Welcome back, Blake.  I hope this was a wake up call for the team, and they start getting ready for March...because it is tomorrow.  I love basketball.  Squeak on guys...squeak on...

Tired of being sick...


I'm at home for the 3rd day this year with an illness.  I hate being sick.  I picked up a stomach virus when I went home for a funeral.  Not fun.  I have slept all day today.  Not sure if I'm going to sleep tonight...oh well.

I love the cfb home page.  Pics of Sam Bradford and Blake Griffin...me likey.  I haven't read the article yet, but I did see it had something to do with them having concussions.  Not fun...not cool.  I hope Blake will come back just as strong as he did before the blow to his head.  I think OU has an excellent chance in the tournament, but is evident that we need Blake playing.  We'll see...we'll see...
