Ever since I first heard Taylor Swift's Love Story, my mind just can't help going off on ABBA's Mamma Mia right after the chorus and it's been bugging me since. I suppose that's what happens to you when you grow up during ABBA's era (can somebody say therapy?). So after managing to source for the respective instrumental and acapella tracks, I managed to put this mash together. I used Mamma Mia from Mamma Mia: The Movie Soundtrack sung by Meryl Streep instead for this one. It's nowhere as epic as John Schmidt's Love Story Meets Vida La Vida (which he has since pulled down from his site due to clearance issues) but if you can imagine Taylor Swift and a bunch of pixies tippy-toeing on the meadow in spring to this song in a music video, I think it's almost there.
Oh, by the way, Taylor, I'm really happy for you and Imma let you finish... but ABBA had the best track of all time!

In a break from the crazy normalcy that I've been having, I had to make a court appearance this morning for
not having enough cash to bribe the cop a traffic violation a couple of weeks back. So I pleaded guilty to the charge and lo and behold. I did not have enough cash to pay for the summons at the court. The next 30 minutes was probably the most exciting thing that has happened to me on a Monday: I got temporarily locked up in a cell before Shazee bailed me out. I want to feel all gangsta about it but then I remembered Nicole Richie spending 83 minutes behind bars and Khloe Kardashian got locked up for 173 minutes so my time behind bars pales in comparison to theirs. Heck, even the biggest nerd on the planet, Bill Gates was behind bars for a couple of hours before being bailed.
On the other hand, I'm happy to report that I'm still a virgin after my 30 minute ordeal but sad at the same time because I still haven't gotten laid at this age.
Here's to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes... the ones who see things differently -- they're not fond of rules... You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can't do is ignore them because they change things... they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.
