Grizedale Forest installation: "Mea Culpa" (My mistake) by the artist Robert Bryce Muir - aRaftofApples.blogspot.com

Here's your "Daily Open Thread" for Friday, Feb. 22, 2013. Throughout your day, come tell us whatever your heart desires, talk about this week's wrestling, or whatever else may be on your mind. Time spent here is guaranteed to be well worth it, no matter what we all chat about.

Here's your Daily Open Thread for Friday, Feb. 22, 2013:

As usual, come discuss whatever your heart desires. Whether you get bored at work, have something on your mind, or just want to chat with all your favorite lovely Cagesiders on any topic you want -- even some wrestling!

Today, let's just get straight to the good stuff. As always, I have my reasons for posting the things I do. Today, it is basically my mea culpa.

This video is by far the best acoustic version of this song I have found to date. It has kind of a Johnny Cash feel to this smash hit. Without further ado, I present to you Justin Furstenfeld solo with Blue October's: "Hate Me" in a way you have never heard it before...

Enjoy ~


Then, after checking that out, you should be sure to scroll on down through the thread, make a comment or two -- or dozens; revisit it throughout the day (and night). You will likely enjoy some of the usual gems from your fellow Cagesiders, including:

Match of the Day, Music Video Link of the day, Babe of the day, Bro of the day, Alison Brie gif of the day, AJ Lee pic of the day, Photo Caption of the Day, and more!

No matter what it is that draws you in, just come chill out with us. Give it a go, or comment, or lurk... 'til your heart is content! Lyrics below the line for those who want to follow along...

"Hate Me"

by ~ Justin Furstenfeld with Blue October

I have to block out thoughts of you, so I don't lose my head
They crawl in like a cockroach, leaving babies in my bed
Dropping little reels of tape, to remind me that I'm alone
Playing movies in my head, that make a porno feel like home

There's a burning in my pride, a nervous bleeding in my brain
An ounce of peace is all I want for you. Will you never call again?
And will you never say that you love me, just to put it in my face?
And will you never try to reach me? It is I that wanted space...

Hate me today
Hate me tomorrow
Hate me so you can finally see what's good for you

I'm sober now for 3 whole months -- it's one accomplishment that you helped me with
The one thing that always tore us apart, is the one thing I won't touch again
In a sick way I want to thank you, for holding my head up late at night
While I was busy waging wars on myself, you were trying to stop the fight

You never doubted my warped opinions on things like suicide or hate
You made me compliment myself when it was way too hard to take
So I'll drive so fucking far away that I never cross your mind
And do whatever it takes in your heart to leave me behind

Hate me today
Hate me tomorrow
Hate me for all the things I didn't do for you

Hate me in ways
Yeah ways hard to swallow
Hate me so you can finally see what's good for you

And with a sad heart I say bye to you and wave
Kicking shadows on the street for every mistake that I had made
And like a baby boy I never was a man
Until I saw your blue eyes crying and I held your face in my hand
And then I fell down yelling "make it go away!"
Just make a smile come back and shine just like it used to be
And then she whispered "How can you do this to me?"

Hate me today
Hate me tomorrow
Hate me for all the things I didn't do for you

Hate me in ways
Yeah ways hard to swallow
Hate me so you can finally see what's good for you
