It's the end of the world as we know it...

Politics, philosophy, the law, current events, left leaning debates, religion, baseball, football, pop culture, growing up Greek, random events in my life...whatever hits my mind at the time.


Living With Grace

I love Launch. (And REM’s Leaving New York is already on Launch, yay!) So anyway, I’m listening to my videos today (Wow, I stopped listening to REM for a few hours!), and they'll throw in some new songs every now and again. Not necessarily in your preferences area, which generally just gets me irritated as they play Britney Spears, Ashlee Simpson, Raven Symone, Jojo, Usher, and Hilary Duff (does every Disney actress think that they can sing? Does Mickey give him something?? I don't get it.) - none of whom I need to hear to compete my life ever, and I have to manually skip the song. But this song thay played today - both the music and the words - were simply beautiful from the beginning. Transcribed (as best as I can just listening to it):

I tell the world I’m doing thirty-five
Only you know the truth
I tell them all I’m happy
But only you have the proof
I tell myself I’ll fall in love
And not just fall on my face
But 'til then I’m living with hope
And I’m living with grace
I tell the world I’m 6'1"
And all you do is smile
I tell them all I’m playing the field
But you know that’s not my style
I tell myself I’ll find my way
Moving at my own pace
But till them I’m living with pride
And I’m living with grace
Living with grace is never easy
But that’s now what life’s about
And no matter when
Tomorrow sees me
I’d rather live with grace than live without
I know the soon you’ll find someone
And vanish without a trace
But although I living alone
I’ll be living with grace
Yes not matter how I feel
In my heart I’ll be there
With grace

It wasn’t until I went to actually SEE the video that I realized (1) it was Eric McCormack (and who knew he could sing anyway?); and (2) that the entire video was Will and Grace, so the "grace" in the song was a person, not a thing. (I'm not a huge Will and Grace fan.) Despite that, I really like the song and must recommend it. It's supposed to be "with Barry Manilow" but I swear I never saw him or even heard him. It was just the crooner style. Wistful song. (I do believe that I like wistful.) Oh, I've also learned that Ryan Cabrera's hair adds several inches to his height. These are the things that might be on Jeopardy one day (Oh, Ken Jennings, when will you return. First, you deserved me for two weeks. Then Michael Stipe cancelled my concert. Why have I been forsaken?) (I pose this question, then almost worry that the mean psycho will think this is a serious question and respond.

    Found a lot of useful info on your site about Ashlee Simpson - thank you. Haven't finished reading it yet but have bookmarked it so I don't lose it. I've just started a Ashlee Simpson blog myself if you'd like to stop by
