Because randomness is the way to go! ;)

Punny, musicky stuff and then some

Been a while since I blogged and a lot has happened in all that time.
Now I may or may not actually do a catching up post later, but I could always mention things randomly when I’m talking about something that’s related.
In that spirit, here’s a sort of funny thing that happened during this in-between time.
It’s something I would’ve blogged about immediately if I was doing the blogging thing regularly then.

Although maybe not immediately, since I realised the thing while I was in the shower.
What’s it with shower thoughts anyway?
How is it that they’re always quirkier/deeper/more epiphanous (don’t you love the word “epiphanous”? Lately I’ve started liking it more than “epiphany” even)/in general very different from and often better than the thoughts we have outside of the shower-time and -place?
I’m sure somebody has conducted a study on this and I could find it if I bothered to Google, but eh!

Actually wait…
Let me!
Because if I don’t procrastinate, who will?

Here we go BTW:

Why our best ideas come to us in the shower

Having rambled enough, let me tell you the thing now.

So…

I realised that the line in the song “The Bird and the Worm” by Owl City that goes

Then we’ll take a long walk
Through the cornfield
And I’ll kiss you
Between the ears

IS A PUN!

I literally facepalmed at my stupidity!
 
I’ve heard that song at least 99 times before this time that I realised the pun thing. Like wow! 
In spite of knowing that Owl City has songs like Rugs from me to you and Dental Care (So many puns! So many of them!), I did not catch this one before.

Also, ever since I realised it, I haven’t been able to listen to the song without going “PUN!” everytime the line is sung in the song. And it’s been a lot of times now.
But nope!
I haven’t stopped.

Now every time the song comes on, in the beginning itself I’m like, “I’m going to point out to myself that the cornfields thing is a pun, aren’t I? This is not going to be the time I actually stop doing that, is it?
Thought so!”

When I overdo things, like this, I’m worried I’ll stop liking the song, or worse, the artist.
But that hasn’t happened this time round, I still love The Bird and The Worm.
In fact, I’m mostly just excited to hear the song.

And I obviously love Owl City a lot.
Adam Young is my go-to artist.

Like, you know, when random people ask me what music I listen to, and they’re going to, very specifically, either see if we have something in common, or maybe judge me based on the music, I tell them Owl City.
I usually avoid telling generic people the obscure stuff I listen to.
I’m not ashamed, that’s not it.
They’re not going to be interested in knowing that I listen to Hank Green songs, or every single song from the AVPM trilogy- so I might as well not tell them.

Speaking of punny stuff and nerdy stuff and musicky stuff, I can’t not mention Hank Green’s Mules are so half-ass (I especially love the way he’s made the video. Hank just never fails to amuse me).

THIS!
This is my favourite punny song!
I honestly don’t know why people don’t like puns very much, I love them!
It’s wordplay and it’s funny!
What’s not to like!

I feel there should be more nerdy music in the world!
I need more geeky, nerdy music for myself!!

Do suggest artists and/or songs that you know of, who have loads of nerdy music- I’ll be forever grateful.

I guess that’s all for now.
I’ve done a fair bit of rambling in this post… Aah well! It’s been a while.

How have you been?
Good to see you still hanging around here.

Don’t be that person who’s reading everything in a group chat and not saying anything.
That guy (or girl) is always creepy.

Leave a comment!

Have a conversation with me down below so I know I’m not just shouting furiously typing into the void or whatever.

(But then again, aren’t we all?)

Which is the perfect song for Paper Towns?

You know what’s the perfect song to listen to while reading Paper Towns???
Especially while reading around the last 60 pages or so which is their road trip? 

It is Dreams And Disasters by Owl City.

[I wanted to embed the video in the post but I am not using my laptop to be able to do that 😦 ]

Oh my god the song is so perfect!!!!
I always thought so and I meant to post it here on the blog but completely forgot and now that I remembered (only because it started playing on my phone and I’m listening to it right now. On replay.) I figured I must post it before I forget again.

We were alone on the road driving faster,
So far from home we were chasing disaster
Hard on the gas till the car caught on fire 
We had to laugh as the smoke billowed higher

And that’s just the beginning.

If any of you Paper Towns fans is planning on rereading the book before the movie comes out (like me) do listen to this song.
And then there’ll be people who’ll read the book only because it’s the new cool thing to do or whatever. Like they did with The Fault In Our Stars.

Aah anyway who am I to judge?
If it gets them to read more books, why not?
John Green is as good a place to start as any.

Also, Paper Towns or no Paper Towns, this song is so awesome!

Enjoy!
And tell me in the comments what other songs you feel are apt for certain books.
