Things To See And Think About and Enjoy

I wrote a lot about talking to each other. This is actually an ad from Liberty Mutual that I saw on another blog. Could you imagine folks looking out for each other insteak of flying combat missions against each other in our cars on the Beltway? I know it's hard to imagine, particularly if you haven't had any coffee yet. Take a deep breath and go get a cup, or whatever you use to jump start your heart when you get up. We'll wait for you.




Some quality on a Sunday, I am thrilled to present to you for your listening pleasure one of the great rock n roll songs of all time with the original singer, Dobie Grey, "Drift Away"




I had had two other pale, miserable imitations which I have deleted, zefluffekkated, gone, they can't hurt you anymore. It's an antique video, but the music.....

Electric Light Orchestra with my personal theme song "Evil Woman" (this is where I put on the high heel boots, drives 'em nuts)



I am always in trouble for this one. The editting on this one is terrible, horrible. The London and Paris Philharmonic Orchestras are recording in Berlin with me and a couple of opera singers. I'm the blonde on the left that's really belting it out. Please try to remember a few things while you're savoring your drink, the Japanese determined how much a CD could initially hold by requiring that the entire 9th Symphony fit onto a CD. The other fact of note, when you are feeling really down, is that Beethoven, who wrote this and many other 'pieces of music' that are still very current and influential, with it's exceptionally complex rythms and interplay of musical themes and instruments, had been stone deaf for quite a while before he wrote this particular symphony, considered by quite a few as the greatest technical masterpiece ever written. The closest I can get to that is to wake up breathing every morning. That may just be an act of defiance on my part. Enjoy the music if you can, and have a brilliant day, and a better week!

How long did you spend on YouTube yesterday?

Come on, you can tell us. You're among friends here.

Less than you'd think. I saw the first one, which got me there. That nade me want to put up the second piece, which I found by searching, really not much.

The personal video from the Karate Championship isn't on YouTube (heheh). All things being told, less than two hours, and that's because I listened to the entire 9th symphony. I spent more time on Technocrapi

I did want some quality for this morning, even if no one came. Next time I'm gonna put up all four parts of the 9th. Leonard Bernstein is almost carried away by the music, yet not a single eye leaves him during the performance. What a great performance to watch.

And Dobie Grey.....he's amazing. That music has been part of my psyche since the first time I heard it. When you get down and depressed, a little Dobie'll do ya. (sometimes I just kill myself laughing).

Leonard Bernstein is magnetic, indeed.

The first step it to admit that you are powerless over YouTube.

BUT I NEED YOU TUBE WITHOUT MY IPOD, I can't breathe

I think this is the part where you turn yourself over to your Higher Power and stuff.
