I'm in the kitchen this morning. My daughter's boyfriend is cooking, some potato recipe (little red ones) as an alternative to the oily but good sautéed version he and my daughter usually cook, incessantly because my daughter loves it. He says to me

"Do you have any time?"

For what?

It turns out he's saying "thyme." He's never heard of it, but there happens to be a jar of it out on the counter that he finds immediately.

You might think that made me worry about his culinary education. Screw that; it made me worry about his musical education. Everybody from my generation knows what thyme is; if we didn't know already, we learned that it somehow went with parsley, sage, and rosemary.

Here, Kid, you need to know about this:


It could have been worse. At least he'd heard of the artists.

Artie has such a killer voice on this.

As it turns out, the guitar part isn't that hard. I learned it back in the seventies. You need a capo, but at least it's in standard tuning.

Ill answer you but please give wide birth to my idiot phone. I was addressing your last comment. My point is at that at any give time people are total assholes.. Everyone. 

Its all according to which asshole is being assholish to who.. And our history. 


one of your good friends ( who was once my good friend) was utterly obnoxious for the longest time. Not to you of course. But to someone you don't get along with. Ok. She stormed off when she got a taste of her own medicine seeing that she would comment specifically to one specific person for no reason except to be insulting. I imagine she saw it as tit for tat. It wansnt. You gotta have some tit before you can lay on the tat. But at some point she decided to skip the tit phase and move directly into the tat. When she got a taste of it she left in a huff. 

Another good friend I detailed in my comment. Another good friend left nor because of anything except she Seemed to believe the tat treatment was okay when applied as she saw fit.. 

1. no one likes being singled out for the tat treatment. 

I gave you a hand slap in my blog for mocking someone. I may be wrong but I sense a sad soul in that person. And he ventured out of the safety of his crazy blog and made some incomprehensible comments in mine. I felt protective. He sa numbskull but hes our numbskull. 

I wish we admitted we give a shit about one another but there s much positioning. Its annoying but I'm attached to you people so I keep coming back. 

Thats it. 

Oh.  my point is we're all human and we're all assholes at times. so finger pointing is dumb. And if your good friends left well.... their loss.

I didn't mock Doc on your thread. If Anna had said that while talking about any male I'd have done the same thing.

Haven't had to think this fast since I hefted lighting for Bernadette and the Boxcars.  Agreed, K, any venture beyond Paul + Art's Concert in Central Park is as hard as, well, what? Counting the lasers in Disney World's light show.  Yeah, I just don't know.  Some of these kids coming up in the world are gonna make Uncle Al Einstein look like an 8th grader with a whiteboard; you know, a brotherhood of man. & sisterhood of good.  Meanwhile, I'm repairing two captain's chairs that had been caught in the rain, remembering Ted Hughes, and a crow and another appeared branch top crow # 1 got my attention with a mystical throat rattle-ratchety call. Bigger than notepads (Van gogh's Vs!) 

Another wonderful presentation, koshersalaami!  I'm also ruminatin' about Rabbi Dr. Abraham Twerski's Love but its fish fry Friday here in Galveston . . . .

Thank you

Rarely, if ever, does this work in reverse. ...Aretha and Ray are fairly convincing evidence of that:

You're right, it rarely works in reverse. A classic example of that is Phil Collins' version of Can't Hurry Love. When that came out it struck me as a pointlessly rhythmically simplified version of the Supremes' hit. However, in this particular case I prefer the original. I don't think the lyrics lend themselves to this big a treatment. Ray alone at a piano could have killed this.

 "Ray alone at a piano could have killed this."


But palatable nonetheless....
