Feeling Weepie

After reading several really good books lately I'm in that moody, creative place where I feel like I want to start writing again.  I've been listening to music again, something I haven't done much of in the last couple of months. 

I don't have much on my mp3 player, comparatively speaking.  (Someone I follow on twitter said today that she has 10,005 songs on hers, and was pondering if she should if she should delete 5 songs to bring it back to a tidy 10,000.  My old but serviceable mp3 has about 1/10 that capacity.)  But there's still enough stuff on there that I forget what I have.

So I was cruising through the other day, looking for something good, when I rediscovered The Weepies.  I only have three of their songs, but I've been listening to those three songs on repeat ever since.  I'm thinking about taking the $2 in free mp3 downloads that Amazon if offering right now (promo code: VDAYMP3S) plus some of the gift certificate credit that I have saved up and downloading a few more songs, or possibly their whole catalog.  I could see this music being the core of a soundtrack.  I know I said this before, but I just logged in over at Wiz IQ, and I'm going to go through the Discovery class again, this time with less moving and distractions.

And here is a video I found for one of the songs I've had on repeat.  It's not an official video, they don't appear to have made one, which is a shame.  But it's still pretty good.  I'd love to know where the images are from, if anyone knows.  Looks like something Japanese to me, and while I have wide ranging tastes, this is an area that I'm completely unfamiliar with.  Some of the clips look pretty romantic, and I'd like to check them out.

And now, Take It From Me!


  1. I find his tail distracting. lol
    The vocalist reminds me of the cranberries which tells my age.

  2. Yeah, the Cranberries definitely have a similar vibe. Considering they were huge when I was in college, I don't think it says anything negative about your age at all!

    Had to wait until I could jump over to the "good" computer before I could see this. I agree, the tail is distracting, I had to just listen and not watch. Also agree, very Cranberry -esque. Nice selection. I've never heard of these folks, but now I'm a fan too. Thanks!

  4. Slightly Cranberry-ish, but there's something else there I can't quite put my finger on. Darn it. That's going to bug me. Anyway, thanks for the intro to The Weepies. They're now firmly ensconced in my Pandora stations.

    Oh, and good luck with the writing!

    I've apparently got two "weepies" cds in my repertoire, but haven't listened. And this song isn't in either of them. But I like this one. I'll have to listen.

    And I'm with Lora. The tail, definitely distracting. Nowadays, though, I'd take a guy even with a tail.

  6. Hey, y'all, Stormy is looking for a piece of tail! (Sometimes I crack myself up!)
