Nostalgia

It's been a day of nostalgia around here. This morning, while running some errands, I happened by HMV and guess what I found. I found a section of CDs going for 2 for $10. Exactly! Now how am I gonna pass that up? So, believe it or not I picked up a few or six. I got two by one of Maryse's favourites (not!) - Bob Dylan

1970's "New Morning"

1986's "Knocked Out Loaded"
Going way back, 1967's "Child is Father to the Man" by Blood, Sweat and Tears. This is the version of the group with Al Kooper, prior to David Clayton-Thomas joining.

Another of Maryse's favourites, Willie Nelson's "Red Headed Stranger" from 1975.

A Van Morrison classic - "T.B. Sheets" from 1967, issued on CD in 1973.

And finally, 1976's "Loggins and Messina - The Best of Friends"

Ahh, it was like a musical garage sale! The clerk asked me if I found everything I was looking for. When I told him I wasn't really looking for anything we both had a good laugh.



Here's Dylan and George Harrison doing If Not For You from New Morning





Here's a video of Willy doing Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain from Red Headed Stranger...



And here's a clip of Van doing Brown Eyed Girl from T.B. Sheets

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on,

Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still have Decem…

Paroxysm Paradox

The weather was unseasonably warm for October. The sun set around 6:30 but the daylight hours were quite enjoyable. So thought Richard, as he set out for his daily walk in the woods. He marvelled at the turning leaves which exhibited an explosion of colour more significant with each passing day.

But Richard knew the turning leaves would soon start to fall. And the trees would soon be bare with no leaves at all. And then the snow would fly and fall from the trees as the leaves had before it.

Richard couldn't help but think of the sudden change to come as a seizure of sorts. And he wasn't looking forward to it. After all, who would welcome a seizure, he thought, as he rolled uncontrollably among the leaves.

This week paroxysm/seizure was the prompt at Two Word Tuesday.
