I love L.A.!!!

I love L.A. (but not the Dodgers, Lakers, Kings (hockey), Bruins, and Raider Nation)!

It felt so good to be on the road again!  I totally missed driving the car!


I can’t believe I heard NEEDTOBREATHE’s (www.needtobreathe.net) song, “Shine On,” on a Desperate Housewives commercial.  I couldn’t believe it because I know it was a song I had heard before on The Fish 95.9 FM KFSH (www.thefish959.com) being used to promote an episode of a show reflecting values that are anything but “family friendly.”  As far as I know, the members of the band are Christians, but I guess they are not marketing themselves as a “Christian band.”

Anyway, you can check out their music video below!

Lyrics:

Somewhere between the end
And the point where we begin
There’s a fire burning brightly
That’s found its way to dim
When the feeling’s gone…

Shine on, shine on
and onto something new its long and overdue
I will remember you
Shine on, shine on
And let the others see you’ve got your victory
Will you remember Me

I was with you in the valley
And up upon that hill
So take just one more step in front of you
For I am with you still you still
And you’re not alone

Shine on, shine on
And onto something new it’s long and overdue
I will remember you
Shine on, shine on
And let the others see you’ve got your victory
Will you remember Me

Can you see My hands are open I am waiting just ahead
And you think you need it all now
But you needed Me instead

Shine on shine on shine on shine on won’t you won’t you shine

Shine on, shine on
And onto something new it’s long and overdue
I will remember you
Shine on, shine on
And let the others see you’ve got your victory
Will you remember Me

Somewhere between the end and the point where we began


Speaking of commercials, has anyone seen the new Mercury Mariner commercial with the “OK Go” song?  I think it was filmed in front of the USC’s Leonard Davis School of Gerontology buildings!

  4. BreadPlease says :

    you know in china they don’t really have this liability factor like we have in the states so renting the motorbikes was as easy as renting bicycles on the beach or seomthing. they were easy to handle…just pull on the handle to gas it or break.

    Just know that the Dodger, Lakers, Kings, Bruins and Raider Nation (not quite) feel the same about you. HA! GO DODGERS, LAKERS, KINGS, BRUINS!
