Press Play; Then Read

The other day, I came into the tattoo shop dreading the work I had coming ahead. You know, we all have those days where everything seems to go left cause nothing seems to go right.
I was tired from the hard work the day before; I felt like curling up into a ball and dieing. I wanted to close my curtains and take a nap on my chair but had to resist due to the disturbing amount of drawings I had to get done.

Then Skully walks through the door with the sun shinning in the back of him. He sets a Mountain Dew down in my booth and says to me... "Get some energy." I sit down, slouching in my chair and stair at the soda thinking about how displeased I am... cause I'm overworked; How distressed I am... cause I'm worn out and how exasperated I am... cause its all indeed played out. I take the first sip of my drink and begin to hear the music in the background. It slowly gets louder and I closed my eyes. I hear the voices of the Cunninlynguists and Pack FM.

The song "Hypnotized" from Strange Journey Volume One is tastefully playing upfront. The corners of my lips I swear had to touch my cheekbones. With a smirk and smile on my face I took a deep breath in and then out releasing my shoulders to rest. I hear the door open again and I open my eyes, walk up to the front and greet the customer. The music is booming more loud and clear. Skully's bumpin behind the desk, and I cant resist moving either.

My mood was real rude. "I love me job."
It's amazing what good music can do to your attitude.

p.s. Cunninlynguists have produced some of the best music I have ever heard.

Don't go Hungry.
