This has been a good and relaxed day. There hasn’t been too much going on here. Woke Up late and Kinda took My time with the Stuff I had to do around here. That felt Nice. Wednesday is My Sunday, my day to relax, but it’s rare when I do, so It felt Nice to do things that way today. No politics today really, I responded to a Post By The P. Cash Perspective, and that’s about as Political as I am getting today. I have to think about his last response and how I am going to respond to it. The Guys got a Good head On his shoulders and he cares about his world. I think His perception of Things is a Bit skewed By skin color. That isn’t a Virtue, But that’s not a Vice either. Just a way of looking at things.
What I was Thinking of Doing was just drawing up a short List of My favorite albums and My favorite songs. Here Goes Nothing! First, a List of the First songs I ever remember listening to.
The First pieces of Music that I listened to, From My Mother old collection of 45′s when I was still only 4 or so (One of the few things I remember from that early in life) Were Glen Campbell’s “Rhinestone Cowboy”, The Beatles “I saw Her standing there” The Monotones “Book of Love” and the Penguins “Earth Angel” all beautiful records that i really like. Well Most, I haven’t heard Rhinestone Cowboy In a Dogs age, not sure How I’d react if I heard It again. She had Tons of Others as well. A song that I really remember Liking from is The Band “The Grass Roots” Temptation Eyes. I listen to the Oldies station around here, but they Never Play it. It’s a really Nice tune. Another One that had an Affect was “No Sugar Tonight” from the Guess Who. I could name 100′s of others. I also Had My Uncle Rich’s record collection that I sifted through and listened to. I really Liked a few of them. Jethro Tull’s Benefit really stands out as being My Favorite of the Collection. There was also The Steve Miller Band Album “Brave New World” that I liked, as well as “Pearl” from Janis Joplin, and, just a Little later, Black Sabbath’s First Album. Some Albums I looked at but don’t really remember listening to. Mostly Old dylan stuff. And the Obligatory Copy Of Carole King’s “Tapestry”. Dunno why I never Listened, but I never did.
As I got Older, and I didn’t Notice it at the time, was that I was really affected By the Music I listened to back then. Put It to you Like this. I am now 40 years Old. I am the Owner Of the Self Same Jethro Tull Benefit album, as well as The Steve Miller Band Album, and That Black Sabbath album. And Pearl. and The Dylan Stuff.
And Tapestry. and No I STILL haven’t listened to it. I will, someday. Maybe.

Today’s Nuggets, Songs Lyrics, Courtesy of www.azlyrics.com :
All this machinery making modern music
Can still be open hearted
Not so coldly charted
It’s really just a question of your honesty, yeah
One likes to believe in the freedom of music
But glittering prizes and endless compromises
Shatter the illusion of integrity. Rush: The Spirit Of Radio: Permanent Waves.
Us and Them
And after all we’re only ordinary men
Me, and you
God only knows it’s not what we would choose to do
Forward he cried from the rear
and the front rank died
And the General sat, as the lines on the map
moved from side to side. Pink Floyd: Us and Them: Dark Side of The Moon
Hello me…its me again.
You can subdue, but never tame me.
It gives me a migraine headache
Thinking down to your level.
Yea, just keep on thinking its my fault
And stay an inch or two outta kicking distance.
Mankind has got to know
His limitations. Megadeth: Sweating Bullets: Countdown to Extinction
For those who are used to There being Some kind of a Picture At the top of My posts, My apologies. When i click On Add Image, the damned Window with My Images is cut in half. The bottom half is below the toolbar, and I can’t for the Life of Me move The Fucking Thing. Art will be added when I can figure this crap out. Should not be Too long. My Humblest apologies.
Picture Issue Fixed! Had to go into Mozilla Firefox to do it, But It works now! Latest Edit: 5/01/08 12:32a.m.
