Simplicity - By Carroll Bryant

SIMPLICITY - By Carroll Bryant


There is a universe of time waiting
For me
This is my world of simplicity 

You can't make up my mind 
For me
You can't take away my simplicity 

Everything!
I break it all down!
Everything you see is .....
Everyday! 
I break it all down!
Everyday I break it all down
To be

Simplicity

Sometimes you have to fight for territory 
Everyone gets challenged eventually 
You can choose to close your eyes if you like 
But that won't save you from the beast 

When everything is alive
Nobody dies
That's why I live my life 
In simplicity 

When everybody cries 
I know I'll survive
That's why I live my life
In simplicity 

There is a universe of light shining 
On me
This is my world, my galaxy 

You can't make up my mind
For me
You can't break away from my simplicity 

When everything is alive
Nobody dies
That's why I live my life 
In simplicity 

When everybody cries 
I know I'll survive
That's why I live my life
In simplicity

Everything!
I break it all down!
Everything you see is .....
Everyday! 
I break it all down!
Everyday I break it all down
To be

Simplicity 

This is my life

Simplicity

Sitcom Review: "2 Broke Girls"

This falls in line with my DVD Reviews segment, but with a twist. Obviously, I am now adding sitcoms into my reviewing. My first review is that of a comedy that you can watch on CBS, and syndicated on TBS, and probably a few other networks.

It stars Kat Dennings, Beth Behrs, Garrett Morris, Jennifer Coolidge, Jonathan Kite, and Matthew Moy.

It's about two girls who work at some little diner while they try and start their own little business of baking / selling cupcakes. One of the girls comes from a wealthy family, and her father got arrested for embezzling or something and she loses her money and goes to work for this diner and .... (Insert yawn here ---> ____)

Let me just get straight to my review. It's not funny. Stale jokes at best. I know when they're coming and I'm always squinting my eyes and saying, "Don't say it, don't say it, don't ... oh, shit, you said it." - And it still isn't funny.

I only tried to watch it about five to seven times, lasting only around ten minutes each time before searching out the remote and turning it to something else.

No one on this show seems to be able to deliver the jokes. The jokes themselves are really bad and expected. I figure only a jobbernowl could watch this show. Bad writing, bad acting, bad directing. If I was given the choice of watching every minute of every episode in season one or eat ten feet of rusted barbed-wire, then grab the BBQ and some water to wash it down.

Hey, I tried to like it. I gave this sitcom more chances than I did 'Dr. Quinn: Medicine Woman' from back in the day. It just doesn't cut the mustard for me. (And my mustard is normally easy to cut, too).

In a world where reality shows dominate, and I sorely despise reality shows, I hate to say I would rather watch 'Big Brother' (kill me now) as opposed to trying to watch one more minute of '2 Broke Girls'. 

My rating - 1 1/2 stars (out of ten)

My Salvation (Hopeless) - By Carroll Bryant

MY SALVATION (HOPELESS) - By Carroll Bryant 



You can't see what's on the inside 
I protect myself by being shy 

You can't feel the angry anxiety 
I take my pills and lay down to cry 

I'm flying away
So far away
Lead me not into temptation 
This is my salvation 

Talk is cheap when there's no philosophy 
Just stupid kids playing ring around the rosy 

You roll your eyes and I begged you to treat me sweet
I can't believe that I even begged you 

I'm flying away
So far away
Lead me not into temptation 
This is my salvation 

I know I'm nothing to you
I'm just a throw-away
Neurotic to the point that I drive you crazy
I got no money to offer your insecurities 
Nothing here for you to respect 

You can't see what's on the inside 
I protect myself by being shy 

You can't feel the angry anxiety 
I take my pills and lay down to die

I'm flying away
So far away
Lead me not into temptation 

I'm flying away
So far away
Lead me not into temptation 
This is my salvation
