Several weeks ago, I put an event on my calendar, “Music at the Library” part of the Cayman Arts Festival. I stopped by on my way to movie night last night. It was very nice I was quite surprised at the young man’s skill.
The Program below.
And below is a video I took last night. Quite nice. Under 3 minutes long.
I’m glad I went, I don’t know what made me put it on my calendar when I heard about it, but I’m glad I did, I would have forgotten about it if I didn’t.
Then I went and saw some friends in Bodden Town and had overall a very nice evening..
Then I slept good, and feel good so far this Friday The 13th morning. And my class that I was so worried about yesterday wasn’t as bad as I thought. All’s well that ends well. Plus, yesterday at lunchtime I met a couple of really nice Rottweiler puppies.
This week has been training week at work. There was the annual safety training, and my drivers license renewal to drive where the planes are. I’m all done now, so today it’s back to work.
I’m feeling a little brain dead this morning, I slept OK, but there was the problem of being super hot under the covers, and super cold out of them. This is a much coffee day. I’m on my second cup, at work, I plan on having at least two more.
I usualy listen to the news i the morning, this morning I listened to some music, it was nice. Maybe I’ll try that more often.
I love the band Rush. I remember Rolling Stone in the ’70s and ’80s, “Back when Rolling Stone Magazine was cool”. I remember the weird little ads in the back. I particularly remember one issue that had this guy wearing a red hoodie, smiling and looking all at peace, and his eyes were all glazed over and wasted looking. I remember thinking “wonder what drugs he’s on, I want the same buzz”. Never did find out.
I remember a band called Dr. Hook, who had a song about wanting to “see my smiling face on the cover of the Rolling Stone” They was “gonna buy five copies for my mother”
My favorite Rush Song is “Working Man” . I never heard it till 1977 when I moved to Maryland. But it’s still a great song. When I was a kid, I delivered newspapers at about $30 a month, and I haven’t really been unemployed since. I worked my job at Sears the day before I went into the Navy and got two paychecks mailed to me in boot camp. I’m so tired of working and don’t think I’ll ever be able to retire.
Your assignment today, if you choose to accept it, is to read the article, and listen to both songs. I hope you will enjoy it.
This morning I made coffee and got in the shower. The toasty aroma greeted me warmly when I came out of the bathroom. I went to get a cup.
CURSES BATMAN! No coffee pot under the strainer basket. Coffee had overflowed and was all over the counter.
i had to go get my bath towel to clean it up.
In my own defense, our coffee maker is very complicated. You have to be a mechanical engineer to disassemble/assemble it to put the filter in. Then program it for how many cups, and how strong, if you’re using the built-in bean grinder. Then enter launch codes, authorization codes, retina scan, fingerprint scan and you’re ready.
It’s very complicated for someone who wakes up as brain-dead as me.
Hopefully I got it now, and I’m done screwing up.
Oh, and I’m glad it’s FRIDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!
Tonight I’m going to see Mad Max in 3D while the Wife goes to a jazz thingy at some restaurant with a bunch of friends. I abhor jazz. It sounds random to me.
This weekend I invented what I call the YouTube Game
It’s a fun game you play by yourself. Here’s what you do. First of all, get your best sounding headphones and plug them into our YouTube device. I was on my phone.
Think of a song you really really like.
Find it on YouTube.
Listen to it on your headphones.
Enjoy it to the max.
While the song is playing, scroll down below and find another song you really really like.
It can’t be the same song by a different artist and it can’t be the same artist.
When the current song has finished, (skipping to the end is against the rules), play your next song.
The game is over when:
There is no suggested song that you really really like.
There is no suggested song that is by a different artist or song title.
Every suggested song is one that you don’t really really want to hear at that particular moment.
The batteries on your device die or your internet drops out. (it happens here)
When any of the above happens, you win!
You must keep playing till you win!
I played for a couple of hours Friday night. It ended for me when every suggestion was Ozzy Osbourne. I covered a wide range of excellent music that I hadn’t heard in a long time before I got to the end. It was fun!
