"California Wasted" - Toad the Wet Sprocket

No time, where did the time go?
What was I thinking?
No compass, no maps
No sail on the mast
And this boat is sinking
We’re going down

There’s too much in my head right now
I’ve got no way to slow it down
And no one’s gonna pull me out
But I still make the same mistakes
California’s wasted on me

I’ll stare at the sun
Let the fire fill my eyes
See nothing but light
An endless day
To banish the night
I could set this right

But there’s too much in my head right now
I’ve got no way to slow it down
And no one’s gonna pull me out
But I still make the same mistakes
California’s wasted on me

On the line where the ocean meets the sky
I’ve been hoping I could see a sign,
Hoping I could see a sign

There’s too much in my head right now
I’ve got no way to slow it down
And no one’s gonna pull me out
And I still make the same mistakes
California’s wasted on me
I still make the same mistakes
I’m wasted out in California

I’m too much in my head right now
California’s wasted on me

Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experience of others, are also remarkable for their apparent disinclination to do so.

— Douglas Adams

"The ’80s…  When music made everything feel ridiculously intense and epic!

Now, if someone ever made a Pacific Rim video to Kenny Loggins’ “Danger Zone”; I don’t know if I’d be able to take it…”

Challenge Accepted!!
This isn’t so much as edited as thrown wildly at my vidding program for Neverreallythoughtaboutthefuture as a thank you for her awesomeness.  Other than a few tweaks here and there, it’s all pure luck how well this lines up. The guys must have been playing this song when they edited the movie cause so many moments were just perfectly matched.

Anyway….just some crazy cheesy 80’s fun!! Danger Zone!!!

This sequence and this song are “Drift Compatible”!
