Shinedown #Threat2Survival

ShinedownWoah I have to say that this album I have chosen for the month of December was pretty easy to pick however what has caused me some grief is actually picking a damn song as my favorite! Shinedown I blame you for making too good of music!

I would go “this is it” then later “now this is it!”  AHHHH it was so hard! I actually still haven’t narrowed it down to one song yet so I’ll just share two of my favorites from this album. Hopefully you haven’t heard them on the radio. I rarely if ever listen to music on the radio, it’s either the CD, Pandora or more recently Spotify. I really hope that you enjoy the songs I have picked just as much as I do. You should really pick up their latest album called Threat to Survival!

Shinedown will forever be one of my favorite bands their music never disappoints, they are the real deal! They have gotten me through some pretty rough moments in my life, I really just love how they speak to my soul. I will always be thankful I was lucky enough to see Shinedown in concert a while back, can’t recall when due to my old agedness. It was my second concert I have been to, and I got to see it with my husband it was our first concert together! We need to go to more, we’ve only been together for two concerts.(Been to 3 my whole life) They are spectacular in concert. Come back to Idaho!!!! Please! That concert was really fun and I also remember staying out late even though my work had fired two people at the same time and I had to work a fourteen hour day the next day. Worth every minute!

I honestly don’t know why it took us so long to pick up this album, our heads weren’t on straight most likely. I’m guessing. But hey we got it in the end. l probably will have all the songs memorized in no time, plus I just like singing along and rocking out that’s just what their music does to me! (Sorry Joe)

Please enjoy the songs and if your interested in the words the lyrics are under the YouTube videos or you can just click on the title of the song and it will take you to the link. Don’t know if I will post again before Christmas but I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to those that celebrate other holidays! I have some high hopes for the year of 2016!

Dangerous”

I could stand behind my barricade
Do what I’m told and be afraid to change
While isolated by the mainstream
With the current up against meWell maybe if my arms were ten feet tall
I could finally reach that crystal ball

‘Cause I still find inside
There’s something braver
And I, I won’t be, I won’t be
The silent damnation

I will never be voiceless
My weapon of choice is
I’d rather be dangerous
I won’t be left defenseless
As God as my witness
I’d rather be dangerous
Dangerous

I’m not making conversation
But I’ll state my observations

Well I could buy my faith like a plot in the ground
But I was never lost and I never had a doubt

‘Cause I still find
It’s not my imagination
And I, I won’t be, I won’t be
The silent damnation

I will never be voiceless
My weapon of choice is
I’d rather be dangerous
I won’t be left defenseless
As God as my witness
I’d rather be dangerous
Dangerous

Everybody
Is somebody
And anybody is you
I own my story
I won’t say sorry
And neither should you

I will never be
I will never be voiceless
My weapon of choice is
I’d rather be dangerous
I won’t be left defenseless
As God as my witness
I’d rather be dangerous

Everybody
Is somebody
And anybody is you
I will never be voiceless
As God as my witness
I won’t be left defenseless
As God as my witness
I’d rather be dangerous
Dangerous

It All Adds Up”

Lookie here got ’em all lined up
Same bitchy girls and boys
On their hands, on their knees
Slither through the streets
Programmed to seek and destroy
And it all adds up
And it all adds upOh my my, no one’s on my side
Too paranoid to listen to me
You can cast me out, you can tape my mouth
But you can’t get a stone to bleed
And it all adds up
And it all adds upYou know I love it when you say you’re afraid
But you hate it when I’m making you shake
Hang the truth from a noose
Put a hitman on the loose
Now you’re countin’ on him making your day

There ain’t no magic bullet
There’s no cure for the weak
There’s no sympathetic shoulder here to put you to sleep
You’re a long, long way from where you thought you would be
Ever murder has a motive, but you ain’t killin’ me
And it all adds up (Got something to say?)
It all adds up (Say it!)

Riddle me this before I take it all back
Been stealin’ my shit for years
So kiss my choir but bad man’s fire
Cause you know I’m gonna bring you to tears
And it all adds up
And it all adds up

Shake shake shake
Callin’ all the snakes
Been itching for the new payroll
Bang bang bang
Blow down the new slang
You can’t keep all the money you stole
And it all adds up
And it all adds up

You know I love it when you say you’re afraid
But you hate it when I’m making you shake
Hang the truth from a noose
Put a hit man on the loose
Now you’re countin’ on him makin’ your day

There ain’t no magic bullet
There’s no cure for the weak
There’s no sympathetic shoulder here to put you to sleep
You’re a long, long way from where you thought you would be
Every murder has a motive but you ain’t killin’ me
And it all adds up [x4]

There ain’t no magic bullet
There’s no cure for the weak
There’s no sympathetic shoulder here to put you to sleep
You’re a long, long way from where you thought you would be
Every murder has a motive but you ain’t killin’ me
And it all adds up [x11]

GODZIllA

Its time for another Movie Adventures of Courtney *that’s me in case you forgot* and Robyn! Unfortunately these movies were supposed to be up before Halloween but well I sort of goofed and totally spaced watching my movie, forgetting all about it until right before Thanksgiving when my movie was being played on television. Oopsies my bad.  I really need someone to help me keep track of all my plans because I obviously have too much going on and can’t keep my head on straight. So ya if your interested comment down below! Now I please ask that you pretend its still October and Halloween is just right around the corner.

Okay thank you so much! What a good group of people I have following me. Now that the mood is set lets get to the movies! Obviously being “October” one must watch  Monster movies and what can beat Godzilla? Nothing I say. NOTHING!!!!

Courtney’s Pick
Godzilla (1998)
1998
What can I say about this version of Godzilla? Now firstly I’m not a really a huge Matthew Broderick fan other than Ferris Buellers day off, but I must admit that he is pretty dang good in Godzilla! This was what probably started my love for the crème del la crème of all Kaiju’s!  I really enjoyed watching Godzilla smash his way throughout the city while the puny humans I mean the military try and find a way to take him down.

My favorite part has to be *spoiler alert* when M.B’s character discovers that Godzilla can reproduce offspring asexually with no female presence and is able to figure out that he is storing fish for his unborn Godzilla babies. D’aww. I was sad when they get destroyed. I’m sorry human race I must always root for that adorable fella to win I mean just look at his face, what’s not to love!
If for some insane reason you have never watched this movie I say get on with it what are you waiting for? The end of the world?

Okay I’m getting a tad bit overzealous here. I humbly apologize. Ahem.

Robyn’s Pick
Godzilla 2014

There’s just something about watching Godzilla and getting a full-body chill when you finally see that massive creature break free of the water. You can never be disappointed when watching any movie featuring Godzilla. Just like the movie with Matthew Broderick, it was very well done. In this movie version, however, they added even greater actors and took us all the way back to Japan for some background information. I liked that they used Godzilla to help track down M.U.T.O. (Massive Unidentified Terrestrial Organism). Even though Godzilla helps them, the military still feels the need to try and kill him (or her, that was never decided). It’s hard not to cheer when Godzilla makes a getaway. I can watch this movie over and over and I wouldn’t get sick of it
