I recently redid my running/exercising music list. I am pretty sure MTV is to blame. I watched the VMA’s because I like to watch train wrecks followed by Beyonce’ (seriously, how cute was her daughter and husband?), and ended up downloading a bunch of current pop music. I won’t even apologize for the Taylor Swift, given what I saw, she is pretty much the best thing current I can play for the kids.
In the course of the downloads, Apple suggested I get some Rick Astley. So I did. So now when I am out huffing and puffing and jogging slower than a fast walker, I occasionally get Rick-Rolled. It makes me giggle.
I wish I wasn’t always at war with myself, struggling with self hatred and my desire to just be a bad ass who doesn’t give a fuck. I think I am getting better, but there are days, when it seems like I can’t win. If a little goofy music (I also have a little Right Set Fred and Spice Girls in the mix) can help me remember that life isn’t as serious as it feels sometimes, then that is a small price to pay. (like six bucks on iTunes for all of the silly really).
