kid got a new pair of headphones.  a terrible story precedes it, but no worse than plenty of other families have, but i'd still prefer it not be part of our story.  i wasnt even home, dont blame me.

the headphones are called BOMBORAS.  23 bucks.  he got the super chic retro brown and tan pair.  they are the big fat padded ones like we had back in the day.

i cant wear those little earbud headphones.  no matter how tiny the little earbud is, it hurts my ear.

these i can do.  so he got them a few days ago, and let me wear them tonight, now that their "burn in" period is over.

i went right to eddie vedder's wishlist.  the one from david letterman - that was the first time we all heard it, and the first time we all saw him with short hair. i remember vividly how i gasped, and my friend went oh. my. god.  to this day, i feel the same way. sweet jesus, he has dimples.  prominent dimples.  i wish i was the verb to trust and never let you down.

then i listen to just breathe, because its a beautiful song.  

then i listen to faded love by patsy cline.  it's amazing.  if you are somewhat deaf, like i am - deaf enough to need the words on the tv, cause otherwise every five minutes you are saying, "what'd he say?" it's amazing.  you can hear things so clearly.  and if you go in your room and close the door, you can belt it out, too.  it was in the springtime, that youuuuu said goodbye...  her voice is clear as a bell.

then i listened to she's got you, which mommy always loved.  ive got your memory, or has it got me?  i really dont knooooow but i knoooooow it wont leet me be!  love it!

and now it's if you've got leaving on your mind.  god she was so so so good.  tell me now, get it over, hurt me now, get it over, if theres a new love in your heart.

i got nothing to talk about. nothing i want to talk about here.  things are very very very slowly and yet still, substantially improving with my son.  the book is going well. i sold my first one to a stranger, so that was fun. i am passionately in love with bernie sanders, and could talk about him at length, but i have learned that talking politics is futile.  i could talk about my thoughts on paris and isis, but that's futile.  its hallmark christmas movie season.  i like them a lot, even tho i love to insult them when i am watching them for their trite messages and predictability.

we are having pizza for dinner tonight.

now hallelujah.  and love is not a victory march its a cold and its a broken hallelujah

i think these headphones could change my life.

padded room with headphones, and meals delivered.  half hour outside each day.  yes.

next up, hank williams.

then oh daddy, by adrien belew.

then some king crimson - heartbeat, and some thomas dolby men in helicopters then porno for pyros tahitian moon.

if the kid doesnt take them back before then.  i highly highly highly recommend these headphones.

I want a room like that too.  But I do value my freedom to still function in the world independently.  That song could make me cry very easily.   Oh my.

Sounds like an inexpensive over the ear headphone. For 23 bucks it's probably a decent value.

King Crimson? I don't know when Heartbeat was. I'll have to look it up. There's a lot of seriously good King Crimson, particularly the John Wetton/Bill Bruford/Robert Fripp (as always) lineup. That insanely legato guitar with the best percussion on a trap set I know of anywhere.

Liked this one, DaisyJane.  I like hearing news about your boy.  The one of mine, that is older than yours but seems to have had some of the same quirks in the past is here this evening, just visiting.  He brings his dogs over, when he comes by.  He's got a good heart, just ....So good to see him, we hugged.  Enough said.  I guess he stops by, or calls at least once a week now.  I'll take it, be thankful, and listen to Patsy sing about heart break....

zanelle - all her songs, i dont know who wrote them, but MAN she speaks right to a broken heart.  

kosher - go listen to it, if you didnt yet - its from the adrien belew lineup, and its lovely as can be. i need to feel your heartbeat heartbeat, so close it feels like mine, alllll mine.


julie - we just keep going, right?  and we will get there.  once a week with some dogs in tow seems like a perfect schedule.  sending you both best wishes and good thoughts.

jw - smiles back to you, my friend.
