Music Shuffle – Personal Therapist Edition

Because really – I’ve BEEN to therapy.

And I’m pretty sure that in my case, the money would have been better spent on music.

(It does, afterall, “hath charms to sooth the savage breast”.  Yes, I said “breast”, not “beast”.  Read your Congreve, people – really.)

So anyway, as I find myself in yet ANOTHER funk (because that’s just what happens to us incredibly creative yet modest types), I’ve again turned to my trusty music collection for comfort and analysis.  I Googled “general questions asked in therapy”…and came upon a list from this site. Seemed as good as any, so I “asked” each question to my music library, then hit “shuffle” for the answer.

Fascinating insights…and, I’ll be damned if I don’t feel better already!

(Try it.  Then, go spend that $150 you saved on a nice lunch and a few new CD’s.  You’re welcome. :))

If you play along, post below or link up!

      I so agree with you…She is THE Golden Girl. She was the one to set the bar high for model's to come. I also admire her for what she did outside of modeling. She was one of the first to go to countries, where one dare to go and not only go…Gave of herself and monies. To make this world a lot better. Another great post!!

      Have to admit I’m with rpg. Sorry, sorry. I avoid Oxford commas myself.In the end neither one really matters, I guess. One thing you do want is to be consistent with whatever house style you adopt.(One thing I am confusing myself no end with is different quoting styles and how the different styles cope with nested quotations. Hmm. Let’s hope that doesn’t start another round…)

    haha. Interesting background music. I like the Irish touch in it. They are actually very fun to listen to. They don’t help with the relaxation though..but I am sure they’ll distract me from my problems.

      Great quote, but I'm skeptical about Jimmy making the logical connection. I'm pretty sure he'll still be a confirmed and ardent hoepcyhangeophile. The Hollywood oligarchs can't conceive of thigs devolving here to the extent that it would impinge on their "creative integrity", let alone their pocketbooks. He'll write this off to an insufficient levle of world-regarding sensitivity and multiculturalism on his part. No doubt as a result of all his years spent here, away from his native Canuckistan. It's really our fault, you see.

      Soyons clair. L’obscurantisme n’est pas l’apannage des conservateurs americains. Toutes les cultures ont leurs problemes et leurs aberrations.Ce que je ne comprends pas c’est que l’on juge les cultures occidentales sur un registre different des cultures non-occidentales.On accepte en silence le sacrifice des chevaux en asie centrale, mais on denonce violamment quand une candidate a la vice-presidence est anti-avorterment.

      For an alien race that supposedly sent Jesus to save humanity they have an odd sense of honoring him. I’m refering to that gigantic head in the cave — the alien idol. Clearly, the ‘engineers’ have created a ‘human’ race that turned their worship away from their idol and on to, in their perception, just another human being. Now, let’s get down to the nasty. Suppose the carbon dating-type test came back with a reading of 400 years? Suppose this movie may have never been released??????

      La croix, c’est le signe de la victoire du Christ et de salut pour tous ceux qui l’invoquent, et de la défaite cuisante du diable. L’aversion de ceux qui veulent faire disparaître ce symbole de nos terres montre quel est l’esprit qui anime nos dirigeants politiques… Idem pour les marchés de Noël qu’on rebaptise marchés d’hiver ou encore le sapin de Noël de Bruxelles que les autorités veulent renommer « structure électronique ».

      Nicely done. I was born in Coral Gables, FL in 74 and we went to Orlando in 75 where I currently live to this day and I do remember vaguely visiting the Citrus Tower as a child. I remember hearing tales of how you could see Citrus Trees as far as the eye could see. Thanks for posting this.
