Music Time! “LOVE” Edition (Part One)! 6/14/16

Diverse Hands

My Facebook feed has been so full of hatred lately. Hate toward “libtards,” hate toward “Republitards,” hate toward the LGBT community, hate toward political candidates or politicians, hate toward gun owners or anti-gun advocates. Remember when public tragedies brought us together? I guess the political discourse has gotten to the point that even after a tragedy we can’t come together as a nation anymore.

We need love: not hate. So my morning will be filled with love songs:

Music TIme! Valentine’s Day Edition! 2/14/16

It’s time to put MediaMonkey on shuffle again, but this time with the filter “Love” so that it only plays songs with the word “love” in them. It’s Valentine’s Day, so it was either “love” or “murder.” I decided to go with “love.”

Suzie and I pretty much boycott this commercial holiday that has no relationship to love anyway. Seriously, go look up the origins of the holiday. Instead we do cool stuff without all the hearts and candies: like going to the Gothic Ball in Austin!
