30 Days of Photos III - Day 21 Broken


I don't mean to sound like a broken record but Ziva has the rest of today's photos.

Speaking of records...

Damn... my laptop isn't broken, but it's so old that my flash player is out of date and it won't let me upload the version I need to play videos. But since I'm broke, I can't afford a new one. :-(
Laughing Mom said…
Can you sound like a broken CD?
nonamedufus said…
It's from the 60s.
nonamedufus said…
I can sing it for you...
The lights turned on and the curtain fell down,
And when it was over it felt like a dream,
They stood at the stage door and begged for a scream,
The agents had paid for the black limousine
That waited outside in the rain.
Did you see them, did you see them?
Did you see them in the river?
They were there to wave to you.
Could you tell that the empty quivered,
Brown skinned Indian on the banks
That were crowded and narrow,
Held a broken arrow?
nonamedufus said…
Yeah, sure...sure...sure...sure...sure...
Boom Boom Larew said…
A private concert! Thank you!
nonamedufus said…
It is Neil Young and I don't have the whine down exactly.
meleahrebeccah said…
Oh, I just LOVE Neil Young!!
nonamedufus said…
He's one of my all time favourites too...much to my wife's dismay.
Cheryl said…
Fan-tas-tic take on this prompt! I adore Neil's voice no matter who he's singing with. I especially love him when he's solo. This is one terrific song too.
nonamedufus said…
A Neil Young fan? There's more to you than meets the eye, Cheryl.
meleahrebeccah said…
She doesn't like him? Why?
nonamedufus said…
I asked her. She says she likes Neil Young. Just not when I play him 48 hours in a row.
Linda Medrano said…
I love Neil! And I love that song!
nonamedufus said…
It's an oldie but a goodie. Like us.
Pat Kumicich said…
Bravo - love the music!
nonamedufus said…
I'm a big Neil Young fan. When I saw today's prompt this was the first thing I thought of. I know. I need a life.
Ziva said…
You know what they say about arrows and time and fruit and flies, right?
nonamedufus said…
Yeah, I do. And you forgot the banana.
ladyV said…
surely before my time. ;)
MikeWJ said…
She never forgets the banana.
MikeWJ said…
Have you heard Neil's latest, NoName? It's fairly brilliant if you like his garage band sound as much as I do. In fact, one of things I most like about Neil is that he can go everything from country acoustic to grunge in the space of a heartbeat. I'm glad that broken blood vessel he had a couple of years ago didn't kill him. He's got a lot left to contribute.
nonamedufus said…
It was Robin Williams who said "if you remember the 60s you weren't there".
nonamedufus said…
I'm waiting for it to arrive from Amazon. These days I have to be careful not to double order things on both iTunes and Amazon. Man, I'm getting old. I agree with your assessment. Did you read his autobiography? Pure Neil.
nonamedufus said…
She's talking about that wonderful Marx quote (Groucho, not the other one): Time flies like an arrow; fruit flies like a banana.
Barb said…
great take on the theme!
nonamedufus said…
It was a little different, wasn't it?
Jamie Baker said…
Nice job, Noname. He's supposed to be in concert here in a few days.
nonamedufus said…
Here too but I'm taking a pass. I've seen him 3 times in the last 3-4 years.
Broken record... PERFECT!
mike said…
That's so funny. Like, 2 weeks ago I finally copied my Decade disks to my computer. Best Neil Young collection there is.
nonamedufus said…
It's his early stuff. Yeah, it's a great collection. I'm looking forward to the next instalment of his Archives.
nonamedufus said…
Broken record was me. Broken Arrow was him.
Monique Renae said…
Aww Neil Young!! I have his stuff on CD but have yet to transfer them over to my computer. Thank you for the reminder.
nonamedufus said…
I have somewhere in the area of 3,000 CDs and LPs. Do you know how long that might take me to digitize them? Did you know neil was working on a sonically superior digital download application. Yeah, it's called Pono. Sounds cool... http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/neil-young-expands-pono-digital-to-analog-music-service-20120927

My Back Pages - November

I read five books last month bringing my year to date total to 61, well past the 50 I estimated at the beginning of the year. And I've yet to get through December.

The month started out with The Nix, the debut novel by Nathan Hill which has been receiving a lot off positive reviews. In it Hill flips back and fourth from the 1968 Chicago protests and 2011 in a desperate search for the truth behind why his mother abandoned him at an early age. In between Hill takes on politics, the media and addiction as well as other aspects of society. It's a well-spun tale and I quite enjoyed reading it.

Next up was the auto-biographical I Am Brian Wilson of Beach Boys fame. This was somewhat of a scattered affair but an interesting read nonetheless. Wilson - or his ghostwriter - however is no Hemingway.

Then it was on to one of my favourite authors, Ian Rankin and his latest tale of now retired Inspector John Rebus, Rather Be The Devil. I never tire of these stories and this is the 21st in …

Traveling Along Singing A Song

Pete and Paulie were strolling along one day. The sun was bright, the air was cool, the birds chirped crazily in the trees and the squirrels  munched merrily on their nuts. Well not their nuts exactly. Nuts they found on the ground and in the gardens in the park.

Paulie felt so good he began to whistle. It wasn't any tune in particular, just one of those annoyingly tuneless whistles that wandered all over the place. Pete looked at Paulie and he squiggled up his nose and he said "What the hell is that?" Paulie replied "Oh nothing in particular. I'm just happy." "But you're not even whistling a tune" said Pete. Paulie replied "If you're so wise I'd like to see you do better, Pete."

Pete went silent for a moment and seemed to mumble to himself for a moment or two. Then he cleared his throat with a little cough, he opened his mouth and he began to sing.
