Here is the first in a series of articles I will be writing. The concept is simple: In today’s world we rush through life trying to get bigger and better things and always trying to get something just out of reach, but very rarely do we stop and smell the roses. It is the small things that can make us smile or bring a large amount of joy we just never knew into our life. Sometimes it is a simple conversation with a stranger or a perfect meal or even a song coming on the radio. In this series I will try to bring up different small pleasures I find that more people need to slow down and try for maybe a quick bit of happiness. Try it….may change your life….
Ok and now here is the first installment: Randomness!
If you have been on the internet at all you will be familiar with the concept of lists. One of these lists that are common is the random music list. These lists are fairly simple, put your music player of choice on random and write down the songs. Depending on the order they indicate the soundtrack to a certain situation. Most people will most likely just skip these lists or just write in songs they would like to hear. While both options work you miss the game of it. The little bit of fun that the list contains. I recently tried one of these lists with my Ipod (which has a personality all of its own anyways). Below is the list and the songs that occurred when I actually tried it. If you have a chance…try it for yourself. Have a little fun.
Zombie Random Playlist: Put your media player of choice on shuffle or random
1st song is the overall theme for the Apocalypse
2nd song is the one that plays during your first zombie kill
3rd song plays while you are being chased by a Horde
4th song plays when you’re forced to kill your loved one
5th song plays when you find the new love interest
6th song plays when you make your final stand
7th song plays when you (think you) make it through it all
8th song plays when you discover a bite mark
