Smile

Do your teeth try to leap from your mouth when you smile?
Or are they just too happy to not want to shine?
Are your cheek muscles trying to push through your skin?
Or just reaching out to your good human kin?

Together we can keep the world illuminated
as long as we're continuing to smile.
The better versions of ourselves aren't so outdated
that we've forgotten how it feels to smile.

I can feel the soft hands of your smile stroke my hair.
They are built all of light and lift me in the air.
As your joy overflows and pours out of your mouth
I'll be trying to siphon it off and dole it out.

Together we can keep the world irrigated
as long as we're continuing to smile.
The better versions of ourselves are not so jaded
that we've forgotten what it means to smile.

Stoner Metal Mix

I just put the finishing touches on what I think may be one of the best overall mixes I've ever made and I just had to share...now, I should note, this is not specifically a stoner metal mix in terms of the genre itself...it's just a bunch of cool "metal" (term used somewhat loosely) that I thoroughly enjoy listening to when I'm stoned...the real point is that some of these transitions are really awesome--particularly the stretch from #9 to #13...

2. Metallica - The Call of Ktulu (S&M)
3. Between the Buried and Me - Mordecai
4. Tool - Intermission
5. Tool - Jimmy
6. Kylesa - The Curse of Lost Days (Pt. III)
7. Dethklok - Into the Water
8. Isis - So Did We
9. Buried Inside - Time as Imperialism
10. Crestfallen - Scouring For Any Signs of Life
