An S.O.S full of good intentions

Every once in a while you come across a song that as when you’re listening to it the first time, you kind know that you won’t be listening to it for a long time to come. And then by the time it ends, you find yourself putting it on repeat just to hear the words once again.

And thus, it grows on you.

I came across this really nice song which I’d like to share here. I’ve pasted the lyrics after the video below – pay attention to the words. They’re simple, yet profound and will leave you with a good “feeling” :)

I tried to fight the feeling, the feeling took me down
I struggle and I lost the day you knocked me out
Now everything’s got meaning, the meanings bring me down
I’m watching as a screening of my life plays out

Every day I fight these feelings
For your sake I will hide the real thing
You can run all your life, all mine I will chase

You should never fight your feelings
When your very bones believe them
You should never fight your feelings
You have to follow natures law

I’ll live with never knowing, if knowings gonna change
I’ll stop a feeling growing, I will stay away
Like a broken record, stuck before a song
A million beginnings, none of them the one

Every day I fight these feelings
For your sake I will hide the real thing
You can run all your life, all mine I will chase

You should never fight your feelings
When your very bones believe them
You should never fight your feelings
You have to follow natures law

I wrote her letters and tried to send them
In a bottle I place my hope
An S.O.S full of good intentions sinking
Will you give it to me, don’t make me wait
You built me up, knocked me down
But I will stand my ground
And guard this light that I’ve found

You should never fight your feelings
When your very bones believe them
If you let them show, you’ll keep them
I know your hurt but soon you’ll rise again, again, again

“qikking” amongst other things

Twitter has become an in-bred, part and parcel of my life.

A few days ago someone mentioned about QIK on twitter, and I decided to check it out.

QIK is a service that allows one to stream videos right from their phone to the web. All it requires is a compatible phone (they support most common phones) – obviously you ought to have a camera phone (duh!) and a good, unlimited data plan with your phone’s service provider (else you’ll be ripped apart)!

QIK is currently in Alpha testing – but you can sign up and you should get an invite hopefully within 24 hours. Once you do, install the software on your phone and begin streaming :)

QIK also intergrates with other social networking sites like Twitter, Seesmic, Blogger, YouTube – and you can configure it so that as you start streaming, it posts the videos live on any of the sites of your choice :)

Unfortunately my mobile service provider doesn’t have a good data plan and I’m far from rolling up my contract… which simply makes it very difficult for me to make use of QIK in it’s full potential!

However I’ve posted a couple of videos, most of them are from home as I can use my home ADSL through my wireless router.

Here’s one from all the fun we had placing an order for a pizza with the voice recognition chick on dominos:
