every time we say goodbye

I love classic music. One of my favorite composers is Cole Porter. He has some really great songs. And of his songs, Every time we say goodbye, near the top of my favorites. The song popped in my head yesterday and has stayed there going on two days. Which reminded me of a movie i saw over Christmas break, Prelude to a kiss, with Alec Baldwin and Meg Ryan. The song was used a lot in the movie. The movie was very different but good none the less. I recommend both [but can only leave you a link to the song you S.O.L. on the movie]. 

The Movie

Gripe…

I hate the cold weather, and i hate snow

that is all

planificar = to plan

OK, being a second year in med school there comes a time in your life where you need to sit down, take an inventory of your life, and think. The usmle step 1 [the most important test that of medschool] is about 18 weeks away. My goal today, besides regular lecture duties, is to sit down and formulate a plan of attack. This monster of a test encompasses all the information that I’ve learned/covered over the past two whirlwind years. What ever my plan is it has to be concise, smart and effective, because the outcome of this test kinda determines the outcome of my medical career… but no pressure right?

cool song and a cool dude

Listening to NPR today i heard a compelling interview with the author/director Eugene Jarecki. I will definitely be looking further into his writings and insights when i find the time.  His new book the American Way of War: Guided Missles, Misguided Men,and a Republic in Peril and his documentary is called Why We Fight. He talks about some serious topics and brings up some soul stirring points. Its a something to seriously look further into


on a much lighter note. Here is a cool Killers song

The Killers – I Cant Stay – The Killers

ok, back to cholecyctitis 
peace& love

Origins

My blog started out in september 2007. It was started under the name mdinthedmv.blogspot.com.

I got over that name sometime in late 2008 so i changed the title to a variation of the Wailers song, Punky Reggae Party. I like the nom de guerre, Soul rebel, so i naturally just made a little switch and revamped my blog. But anyway this isnt going to be a long post, because i have a Gastrointestinal test tomorrow, I was just givin some background.
here is the song, its one of my favorites. I sometimes like to spaz out and dance like a a reggae rocker to this. [lol enjoy the mental image, and if you cant look up the movie Rockers on youtube, you will understand after you see the dance hall scene]

Punky Reggae Party – Bob Marley & The Wailers

anyway im out
Peace& love

Las Cosas

So much to say…

But so little time.

I cant really say anything that hasn’t been said about the inauguration. I just feel immensely blessed to have been there and witness it all. So I’ll leave you with the benediction from the right reverend Joseph Lowery.

Peace love& HOPE
