Saw this one on youtube and nostalgia’d so hard I had to share it. Probably my favorite song of theirs, performed at the only show of theirs I was ever able to see.

Top Five Regrets of the Dying:
- I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.
- I wish I hadn’t worked so hard.
- I wish I’d had the courage to express my feelings.
- I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends.
- I wish that I had let myself be happier.

“Cause = Time” was the first song I heard by a band I was introduced to during my sophomore year of high school. It was sent to me (via AOL Instant Messenger) by my then-significant other during what would come to be a very developmental time in my life, and while not my favorite song by the band, it certainly carries the most weight. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find any recordings of their final performance of this song at their final gig in Rio de Janeiro earlier this month. So, in (almost) equally fitting fashion, here’s the final song they performed that sentimental evening. Here’s to BSS, I wouldn’t be who I am today without you.

- An unmistakable ability to enjoy each moment.
- A loss of interest in judging other people.
- A loss of interest in interpreting the actions of others.
- A loss of interest in conflict.
- A loss of the ability to worry.
- Frequent, overwhelming episodes of appreciation.
- Contented feelings of connectedness with others and nature.
- An increasing tendency to let things happen rather than make them happen.

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” –Steve Jobs (1955-2011)
We need to avoid people who are toxic.
Meaning that in every relationship between two people,
people could either be toxic or nourishing to one another.
That’s not to the say the same person will always be toxic or nourishing to every relationship, but the combination of two people, in a relationship, will always have toxic or nourishing qualities.
The important part is the test. Chill with somebody. Chop it up, smoke, drink, whatever your demon is. It don’t matter what the fuck it is. But at the end of that time, you gotta ask yourself a very important question.
Do you feel tired? Or do you feel energized? Cause if you tired, then you’ve been poisoned; if you got energy then you’ve been nourished.
You are the company that you keep, man. You know what; fuck your fake ass lifestyle. You look okay, but your energy’s tired, son.
