We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Actually, I like him--had several CD's before as usual the kids "borrowed" 'em. I wuz just funnin' at his off-the-wall compositions. Big fan of Kingston Trio, Vince Guaraldi, Terry Allen, Johnny Cash. Lots of others, but those four leap to mind first of firsts. You?
Hmmm, I gotta think. After hearing a Bach Toccata today played at church with heart and soul and mind-boggling skill - with all his feet going like crazy, it's tough not to be in a Bach organ state of mind.
Not dodging, but, besides Dylan, what I want to hear varies so much from day to day. Muddy Waters, R Stones, Ella Fitzgerald, Elvis, Allman Bros, Albert King, anything Motown, Keb Mo, Sonny Boy Williamson... Yes, love Johnny Cash of course, but not exactly musically interesting - you get it the first time, and have to rest it before listening to it again.
You wouldn't believe the stuff on my itunes. It's now 1/3 opera, 1/3 blues, and 1/3 mixed pop stuff. You put it on random play, and it's a trip through a mind unsettled on its identity.
Right ab/ Cash--it's less the music than the statement about life in general. Stones, yes, esp "Let it Bleed". ZZ Top and Led Zepp, don't forget. Ella Fitzgerald takes you into that whole Nat King Cole, Duke Ellington, Louie Armstrong universe. Ahhh, it's all too much--so rich.
