"record review: Jack Johnsons ' To The Sea'
I can safely say that I have never listened to a Jack Johnson CD until today. I hear his music on the radio and it's a pleasant diversion. But I had to charge up my mp3 player and renew my rentals of music from Rhapsody today as I have a date at the sweat factory tonight (new gym). The site kept mentioning Jack Johnson. Ok, I'll listen for back ground music while I work. I listened to it like 4 times.
Turns out Jack lives in Hawaii is a cinematographer, surfer, eco -loving music dude and that little album transported me to a sunny beach. My feet are in the hot sand, I'm drinking a fruit punch on ice, staring at the blue sea , and bopping my head to the beat. Fun. Beach-folk-pop. Very 60's sounding, Van Morrison sounding. Some songs remind me of "Dirty Dancing"..some like the movie "Ya YA sister hood.."....some are dreamy ..anyway, it's rented on to my mp3 player. Maybe a back yard , under the oak tree, drinking iced tea day is coming. If you need a little beach diversion , but your landlocked like I am ---I would recommend you check it out.
I'm a Geek for many things: Food, Pajamas, Coffee, Chocolate, Movies, Books, getting and being fit and healthy, 80's music, and the list goes on and on .....A nurse, a diabetic, I've lost over 130 lbs and have more to go . And I actually enjoy working out.
I chose the names of Ms. PJ Geek and PJ and Pounds because I have happy memories of childhood, coming in dirty and sweaty from playing in the yard. Then taking a bath, putting on a fresh nightgown and feeling all new again . I felt like a princess. Fresh renewal. .........
All names and situations will be changed to protect the innocent and the guilty, and so I can keep my job. While I am a nurse, I do not intend this to be a blog with specific directions or guidelines for healthcare. And.....though I have a college degree, that was a long time ago ya'll, and I don't remember proper punctuation or grammar.
