1, What is your favorite song that tells a story?
You can with really any Springsteen / Dylan catalog here. I have blogged before about Bruce and “Sherry Darling” and how he can’t wait to marry her and get their own place so he doesn’t have to drive Sherry’s mother around – that is a pretty peppy story song. And of course – “The River”
2. What is your favorite LONG song (over 7 minutes)?
I made a decision to not count live versions as that is kind of part of the thing – a live riff on a piece of the performer’s canon. So I went with Wilco and Spiders from A Ghost is Born at 10:43 and a definite rocker.
3. If somebody kidnapped you and said “You die unless you sing one song perfectly” which one would you choose?
Taking nerves into account it would be the Happy Birthday song as I suck at remembering words and verses.
4. What fictional character death hit you the hardest?
Wait – Dumbledore is dead!
5. What fictional food would you like to try?
Any of the candy confections from Hairy Potter or Willie Wonka
What a long week and I only worked 4 days – I got my third vax shot – my Moderna booster yesterday I have a really achy ary today, and a headache and general brain fog but so far no major side effects.
Woke up Monday on a chilly morning with no heater in my car. after lots of YouTube study and troubleshooting determine it is the A/C connector switch that controls the blower. I will install this little gadget on Saturday – Yay DIY me.
Here is a fun link 12ftladder Based on the principle of the best way to get over a 10-foot wall is with a 12-foot ladder – so paste a firewalled article from the web in the search function and voila you have the formally blocked content. I use it a lot on NY Time Cooking articles and for New Scientist, Scientific American, and The Wall Street Journal.
Oh wait, did I tell you I have a really gnarly headache – yeah, I do.
