Rain.

A funny thing about my “Regn” playlist is that I always end up listening to it. When it’s raining and when it’s not. When it’s cold and when it’s warm. When it’s summer and when it’s winter. When it’s night and when it’s day. When it’s light and when it’s dark. It’s always rain, rain, rain. What does this mean? That my songs aren’t really suited for only rain at all? But when I look at the list, it’s exactly what I think of – cold, wet, drizzling rain. So is it always raining? I think that it is. It’s always raining in my head. Whether I’m happy or sad, tired or excited, there’s always the pitter patter of drops hitting the window in the background. So, whenever I feel like it, I know that “Regn” will always be there to welcome me.

Kay, so, I have one question: Is anyone there? I have apparently had a little over 100 views on this bloody blog, and all I have to prove that is a single freaking pingback….what the hell is that, anyways? Do I actually have readers, or have 100 people accidentally stumbled upon this blog? If there is someone out there that actually reads my posts by their own volition, could you let me know? A comment with the word “Hello” or “Hi” would suffice. Just some sign so I know you’re out there. And if you want to…could you…maybe…write something of more substance? It could be anything, write about yourself, how you found my blog, what you like about it, or even what you dislike. It could be a lovely poem, a funny story or a music rec. Anything really. That would be nice. But not crucial. Like a said, a sign of life is enough. Kthnxbye…I kid, I kid. Have a lovely evening. Buttering you up? Me? No way *ironic wink*.

Tune of the Day, a lulling, calm song by a group I like very much. The most obvious side is the more aggressive, dance songs, but I truly do love their slower songs as well. I prefer the acoustic version…today, but do listen to the original one as well, it’s just as lovely. Here it is:

Yeah Yeah Yeahs – Soft Shock

It’s the time, it’s the day, don’t leave me. It’s the time, it’s the place, don’t leave me out…
