Once again, I’m a day late and I’m perpetually a dollar short. My house guests didn’t leave until 6AM this morning. After a late night and an early morning, I’m still running a teensy bit slow.
Glad you guys enjoyed the Battle of the Bands. I admit it was a lazy way to fill a blog post for me this past Wednesday, but I may just keep this going as a weekly or at least monthly thing. Let me think on it for a few more days, and I’ll let you know.
My favorite of the two is NINA SIMONE and it seems that she is (almost unanimously) yours also. I like the smoky, bluesy quality of her, not so feminine, voice. Muse and lead singer Matt Bellamy do a good job, but somewhere in there, with the more electric sound, it loses that genuine blues quality. Thanks for playing along. I’ll see what I can come up with in the future.
After a week of playing at vacation with my guests, I feel a little let down getting back to the same old, same old around here. I think we might have had a little bit too much fun.
I did notice how much people can change (even in a short time), sometimes according to their environment and circumstances. It’s kind of funny how with some people, particularly those that you feel really connected to, you can just pick right up wherever you left off, like it was yesterday. On the other hand there are people who might have been special friends at a point in our lives that become fond memories and nothing more. Oh well, enough of that. You all know how fond I am of talking about myself.
I do want to take a few sentences to plug ‘FIGHT CLUB’ again. You can find it over at DL Cruising Altitude 2.0. A lot of people have put a lot of time and effort into this little project, so go on over and check it out. Vote for your favorite (I already know you like to vote*) and leave a helpful comment for the participants. I didn’t submit a written piece this year, so this is not a shameless ploy for your vote (even though it’s all anonymous), but it’s a fun contest and a good way to support your fellow writers. While you’re there, give DL a great big thank you for all he does to put this program together.
*NOTE* to be able to vote this year you will need to add your name to the Linky List.
See you on the flip side (I always wanted to say that) or next Wednesday for sure.
I think I actually might be starting to figure out where the commas go.
