Now, I see many of your hands up, so let me give you all an anticipatory answer to two of your questions: No and Yes. (1) No, this will not be the subject matter of my Blog each post (ppphew!, right) and (2) Yes, this is my first entry ever so you'd be wise to print this to PDF. (or print out and scan if you must) and save for eons on your hard drive as this Blog shall rival that Julia Childs lady (nope).....and please be gentle on the comments.
Back on point, this blog is about my family and its odd, quirky love, passion and sometimes misunderstanding for music, each other.....yeah, yeah yeah, blah, blah, blah.....I haven't yet figured out my reason for sharing any of this, but enjoy it while it lasts (hopefully)....so here goes:
Our favorite game (ok, my favorite game) to play on long trips, cross-town zips or whenever the movie "Rapunzel" or an episode of the "Backyardigans" isn't blasting on the kids DVD player, my wife and I play a game with the car radio. We call it the "Seek-Up Game" (Yes, we are Dave Matthews fans, but that has nothing to do with the game). And when we play, I win...all I do is win (#TimTebow). Here's how we play. Starting from the lowest FM channel we can find we seek up, or forward, stopping at each and every song. The first player to name the song and artist within 10 seconds (and without looking at the car readout...cheater) wins that round; then seek again. First to 21 wins. It's very basic, often fun, and usually results in my wife saying "wait, you've actually heard this song before?" (hence the title of this post).
As the Champ of "Seek-Up" (yes, I am self-proclaimed) I get to pick out the movie for the weekend. Then, as a matter of course, my 3 year old exercises her 3 year old Veto Power (a veto power that far surpases any Presidential Veto Power and is neither limited by scope or frequency of use), and the whole family gets to curl up on the couch and watch a "Direct to DVD Disney Classic" (for those of you experienced such a film, you are one of the fortunate ones).
So, if you dare to challenge me, the next time I ask if you want to go to the store to pick up some diapers or fun dip or any other random item, consider this an invite to game with the Champ.
Thanks for reading. "Join me next time" when I plan to discuss why the Avett Brothers are a gate way drug (if you don't know who the Avett Brothers are, study up peeps).
