My iPod Has Issues – Hanging Around the House

6 Nov

I am sitting in my office and just finished reading an article about sumo wrestling. My family is upstairs watching a music awards show, and the sounds are making their way to me. There is a note on the desk with a list of blogging topics. Four of them have been crossed out, and two of them are waiting to formulate in my mind.

Speaking of my mind, it keeps drifting to class. It feels that I am behind in couple of them, and I am trying to figure out how to catch up. This semester is going by faster than any semester I can remember. It is hard to believe that November has arrived. I was always told that getting older makes time go by quicker, but this semester is super quick.Time

An old toy from my childhood is sitting on the floor. My mom was going to get rid of it in a garage sale, but I rescued it. I bought batteries to put into it, and they are sitting on my desk. I should put them in, but I am afraid it will not work. That probably is not important. However, it could cause some slight psychological damage.

Speaking of psychological damage, this is an appropriate time to look into the mind of my iPod. There is music in the air, which means there should be music on the screen

    You have a few of my favorites on your list today. “Black Magic Woman” by Santana, “Proud Mary” by Creedence Clearwater Revival, and “Dancing in the Street” by Martha Reeves and the Vandellas all bring back memories of particular periods in my life. Funny how music does that 🙂

      That’s what music is all about. Glad you found some stuff that you like.

    The first time I heard “Black Magic Woman” was the Fleetwood Mac original. It’s incredible how Santana took that and made it a Santana signature sound. I enjoy both. A bit like what Clapton did with J.J. Cale’s “Cocaine” and to a lesser extent, “After Midnight”.

      Some artists have the ability to make a song their own and make people forget about the originals. That is good for them but not as good for those who came before.

        Honestly, I discovered Cale through Clapton. So it’s not too bad.
