Last night I decided to try to figure out the chords for "Love Song" by
Sarah Bareilles. Here is what I've got:
Gm Gm Gm Am | Bb Bb Bb C | Dm Dm Dm C | F F F D/F# |
Gm Gm Gm Gm | Am Am Am Am | Bb Bb Bb Bb | 1. C C C C | 2.Bb Bb Bb Bb |
(1st and 2nd endings)
Gm Gm Gm Gm | C C C C | F F F F | Bb Bb Bb Bb |
Dm Dm Dm Dm | G G G G | Bb Bb Bb Bb | C C C C |
the bass line for the verse part is something like this (changing as
the chords do):
G G G A | Bb Bb Bb C | D D D E | F F F F# | G ......
the bass line for the bridge is like this:
D D D D | B B B B | Bb Bb Bb Bb | C C C C |
note: on the verse I like to use a Bb chord like this:
and a Gm chord just to the right of it:
I also like to add a D on the B string for the last C chord of the
bridge. All chords are pretty much open position Mel Bay Book
low fat vanilla zero trans-fat chords unless otherwise noted.

Good afternoon class, today's lesson is: be nice to retail workers.
I found this article here
and copied/pasted it just incase the link goes down, the write-up is
good. Some creative spelling here and there, but that is
They Are On Your Side
Now that the weather has turned colder and Scorpio rules the
night sky, many people’s thoughts turn to various winter gift
holidays (Yule, Christmas, Kwanzaa or Hanukkah). This means
you will throng to retail stores like flies to rotten meat.
very, very stressed when dealing with the store workers. They
seem like idiots. They will seem like they are out to get
I worked retail for about ten years, and I can reveal to you
that retail employees are actually more scared of you
than you can
possibly realise. Before you go holiday shopping, relax
truth about what it’s like to be a retail store worker during
and December. And then pity them.
Yes, We Have No Bananas
If a retail worker seems clueless, that’s because
they are. Retail
workers are given only the barest miminum in training —
how to use the cash register, how to read their work schedule and that’s
This is why they always have to ask the manager a question.
not think it is worth giving seasonal employees extensive training,
since they’ll be gone in January. If a retail
worker hangs about
longer, they are fired or pressured to quit so they do not have to be
given a raise. The retail industry relies on having the vast
of their workers be paid minimum wage only.
They Haven’t Slept Since October
Very few retail workers have steady schedules. Most
often, they are
on swing shift. In my time in retail, there were days I had
until midnight and then had to be at my register at six the next
morning. This takes an incredible toll on physical health,
concentrate and to pick up lots of details. If you have a
don’t go on a tangent — please get to the point so
you can be pointed
in the right direction.
They Have To Say A Lot Of Crap
It is a requirement of many retial store workers to answer the
with a particular sentence, to pitch the store credit card as soon as
you walk in the door and to go through a litany of seemingly stupid
questions when you get to the register. The workers
can’t help this.
They hate it just as much as you do. In order to make the
painless as possible, just let them babble on through the sales pitch
as quickly as possible.
When a retail store worker, especially a register worker,
you, they will often sound like a robot. That’s
because of a
combination of stress, exhaustion and having to say the prerequisite
"please apply for a store card" chant. After eight hours of
alone eight weeks, you can’t help but sound like a
shopers, do not take the monotone personally.
Make a Retail Worker’s Day
Just say "Please" and "Thank you." This is the
equivelent of giving
a comforting hug. Sometimes a genuine smile from a customer
to keep me from bursting out into tears.
And please, don’t take buying a sky blue and not
navy blue belly
button lint remover as an insult. Stuff is not what holdiays
about. It’s saying "Please" and "Thank you."
Together, we can get through this."

I stumbled across an interesting little video clip that ESPN inserted
into their coverage of the annual Drum Corps International World
Championship competition. They take a tenor drummer from the
and hook him up with monitoring equipment to find out how
hard his body is working during a performance. Check it out.
Check this out....a jet powered minivan....completely stealthy, until
he flips the switch to open the rear window/hatch. Hahahaha.

I found this today as a random classified post in the sidebar of my
needed for a Pirate/Viking Metal band. We can be described as
if Metallica and Iron Maiden gave birth to Leaf Erikson while attacking
Captain Blackbeard. 2 demo tracks available...if your interested
message me here on Facebook or AIM...."
sorry....it just sounded funny....

Here is a video of the owner of the world's only Ferrari P 4/5.
It is essentially a modified Enzo Ferrari in the spirit of

LOL !! =p
That will be all for today's

Last night I decided to replace my rear Eibach springs with the Cobbs
so I have a matching set (Cobb sport springs all around).
Initially I was worried that they were raising the car up in
the back, which just goes to show that you can't judge ride height
until the springs are actually on the car, bolted down and maybe drive
the car around the block a few times incase the struts need to compress
a little. So, ride height looks great as of last night, back
looks just as low as the Eibachs did, but now I can sell my Eibach set
and pay off part of my blow off valve, haha. (That guy was expensive).
I was thinking next perhaps doing an STI hood scoop or a
different wing. I know some people don't like the STI wings
but I think the high wing and high scoop with a lowered car gives it a
cool looking profile. Then I could always do a bigger turbo
and injectors and be as fast as an STI anyways for not too expensive.
People are always selling and upgrading to bigger turbos or
going back to stock to sell their car and upgrade. Any
suggestions?? I like carbon fiber stuff, might look cool on a
black car. =)
Check this out, this guy's intake blows up (not sure how that happens,
I am thinking that he may have it rigged to do that unless other things
blew up in his engine also, anyways, have a look, it's fun....)
Actually, now that I watched it a second time looks like his
engine went, oh well, haha !
turbo upgrade $3000
18x11" wheels $2800
huge wide tires $1200
exhaust system $ 750
remaining car loan
I am accepting sponsorships and for your contributions you will recieve
an authentic handshake. =)
