Bring Your Foo Fighters To Work Day

Foo-FightersIt was a Black Friday for me, Modern Philosophers, but not because I went on any shopping sprees and did bodily harm to others in order to take advantage of a sale.

It was a dark day because I had to go to work when all I really wanted to do was stay home, sleep, and attack the leftovers.

We operated with a skeleton crew at work, and the day just dragged.  Sure, a quiet day is never a bad thing, but the lack of phone calls and urgent matters requiring my immediate attention seemed to mock me.

So I did what any other Modern Philosopher in a workday crisis should do…I busted out some Foo Fighters.

foo 2Dave Grohl and the boys never fail to bring a little excitement to any situation, and the black clouds simply cannot hover when the music is cranked and the Foos are rocking.

My Boy Scout background taught me to always be prepared, and that is why my “Wasting Light” CD is always in my bag.

If you’ve never listened to this particular CD all the way through, I highly recommend it.  It’s one kick ass song after another, culminating with “Walk”, which is my favorite song on the album and always needs to be listened to twice.

Needless to say, things started looking up once I had my injection of Foo Fighters.  I’m sure the few coworkers within earshot of me really appreciated my singing along to the music, and probably had their days kick started as well.

on the deskI’m not going to say that I got up on my desk and started to rock out, but you can decide for yourself whether or not that happened.

All I know is that when Dave Grohl and the boys decide to take charge of my work day, a boring Black Friday can get very exciting after just a song or two.

And you don’t have to take my word for it.  The next time work has the pillow of boredom pressed over your face in an attempt to kill off the last of your brain cells, crank up some Foo Fighters and let me know what happens.

Happy Friday, Modern Philosophers!  We survived another week!

    Foo Fighters? My mind is still firmly planted in the Metallica era. So…I listened to “Walk” on Youtube. Not bad.

    Foo Fighters were the name given by WWII flyers for the UFO’s they spotted.

    Foo Fighters wake the dead. Dave Grohl is an animal, endangered species.

    Everlong, the acoustic version, is one of the best songs. ever.

    yeh, that’s a good one for sure austin. fyi – in my version, i would have bring your ‘fire-fighters’ to work day, that would really be something )

  5. Love the Foo Fighters, thanks to my stepson, a big fan. You’d probably like Them Crooked Vultures, too…another Dave Grohl creation. Hope you are sleeping in today.

  6. I looked up “Walk” on Youtube. A bit repetitive, but not bad.
