Random musings on whatever subject strikes my fancy that day.

Yes, these compilation videos are a dime a dozen.  Yes, they are easy to enjoy because they cherry-pick so mercilessly. Yes, he misspelled #20.

But this… is just… good.  So, there it is.

 

Sofa

 Frank Zappa tried to use music to teach society to be better, which is kind of like trying to train an elephant with a cattail.  It might notice, and it might just step on you for your trouble.  Still, the music was amazing.

Golden Apples

Thinking about an Apple-related post, so this is something for the interim

…also a great Bradbury collection.

From the poem by Yeats:

The Song of Wandering Aengus

I went out to the hazel wood,

Because a fire was in my head,

And cut and peeled a hazel wand,

And hooked a berry to a thread;

And when white moths were on the wing,

And moth-like stars were flickering out,

I dropped the berry in a stream

And caught a little silver trout.

When I had laid it on the floor

I went to blow the fire aflame,

But something rustled on the floor,

And some one called me by my name:

It had become a glimmering girl

With apple blossom in her hair

Who called me by my name and ran

And faded through the brightening air.

Though I am old with wandering

Through hollow lands and hilly lands,

I will find out where she has gone,

And kiss her lips and take her hands;

And walk among long dappled grass,

And pluck till time and times are done

The silver apples of the moon,

The golden apples of the sun.

William Butler Yeats

Angel

If dreams were thunder and lightning was desire this old house would have burned down a long time ago.

Angel from Montgomery.  Voice of an angel.  Angel food cake.  I don’t know.

Here’s two things I do know: I’m tired.  This is great.

 

Sweet – Again

Sweet Spirit is a band I learned about by accident at a drag show last month.

It’s a fact: at 60, I can find new music and bands to like.  I am trying to maintain my status as a perennial.
