thoughts nicely floating along until

More than two years ago I wrote:

As long as I’m blogging
then the world is alright and everything swinging
as long as I’m blogging my post

Today, I still continue posting but not at my previous pace back when I posted those lines above. I wonder why. A faster pace of distractions? Has my blogging momentum dropped? I don’t know. But just as in the past music provides me solace.

Dom dom dom dom
Domby dooby dom...
Whoa, oh, oh

Day dreaming while surfing on easy thoughts until bam. A rogue wave of chaos and confusion sweeps me up. I crash on the cold rocks, salt burning my eyes. Damn I shouldn’t watch the news so much.

Music provides me solace.

If you do listen to this clip I have a question.
Just before the great sax solo (near the 1:10 mark)
“You never give me chance” - are those words followed by a woman’s scream??

Lighten up and blog on

Overthinking the lyrics again

I done ran into my baby
And finally found my old blue jean
I done ran into my baby
And finally found my old blue jean
Well, I could tell that they was mine
From the oil and the gasoline

lost his old blue jeans

This sounds like it's leading up to a commercial for a powerful stain remover. The slow beat of this blues song would be different than most commercial background music. The song is slow and long enough to have time to wash some blue jeans. Of course for those boomerang kids the lyrics would be more accurate to change “baby” to “mom”.

I done ran into my MOM
And finally found my old blue jean

I suspect those words might have been uttered more than once. Notice with that word replacement this song could be used for Mother’s Day.

One other thought about a this word change. I’m certain “baby” here refers to a lover. Possibly a past lover who has left with his blue jeans. Two problems - whose baby wants dirty gasoline stained jeans? And would these old blue jeans even fit well?

'Cause if I get back those blue jean
You know, my MOM be bringin' 'em home to me

Day after day

I’ve been known to show a foolish grin occasionally.

“But the fool on the hill
Sees the sun going down
And the eyes in his head
See the world spinning round”

I noticed a few things while watching our world spinning round. Coming down from the hill, I’ll share my feelings on a few topics here before they spin out of head.

day after day

The Land of Lincoln needs help

The poorly run state of mine, Illinois, was recently mentioned as debt example on a business channel during a discussion of Puerto Rico’s debt problem. (my state of mind does always run well either)

world spinning round 

While checking out a foolish end-of-the-world forecasts (I forecast the world spinning around for many centuries to come). I came across an interesting fact about our earth’s magnetic field. You might recall that earth’s magnetic field is cause by the spinning of the liquid outer core. What was news to me is the fact the magnetic north pole moves and has moved quite a distance since scientists determined its location back in the 1800’s.

A NASA’s article says the magnetic pole is moving faster now. Scientists estimate the pole is migrating northward about 40 miles per year, as opposed to about 10 miles per year in the early 20th century. It won't be long before its pace will outpace my pace.

fool on the hill 

Did you notice the recent fool on the hill? A devious fool testified on the hill (the hill in DC) this week. The eyes in my head noticed the creative way an activist protested at the Equifax hearing. Amanda Werner, arbitration campaign manager for Public Citizen and Americans for Financial Reform, dressed up as the Monopoly Man. She managed a seat near the Equifax fool so she would be in camera shots.(more about her protest follow this link).


Hills can be strenuous so maybe I should hang out at the mall instead. However, I avoid the mall for fear I might be summoned to food court for a bagel violation.
