Musical Monday

It’s Monday and time for a bit of music since “Last Week Tonight” had no new episode this week.

I’m often amused over people’s reactions to the most innocuous things, and laugh out loud at those who try to push other people’s buttons when they get offended over nothing. It just goes to show how miscommunications and misunderstandings happen regularly, especially on the interwebs.

For me, speaking with people is always best done in person so that facial expressions and body language can be seen, or vocal tone can be heard and discerned. Much is lost on many levels without face-to-face communication.

This isn’t a complaint or a gripe, it is a personal observation. I think that there are some out there who might agree with this observation if they were willing to be honest with themselves.

I’m not holding my breath.

Midweek Music

Here are three excellent tunes to tickle your eardrums on this fine Wednesday morning.

Rod Run to the End of the World

This event is one which we have attended and participated in for the past three years: the Rod Run to the End of the World. It is an enjoyable event for those of us who love the allure, artwork, and sheer poetry of the classic, American-made automobile. This is the 35th time that it has been held, and the town which hosts it has changed very little in those 35 years.

Other than the vehicles, the only other reason to attend is for the opportunity to taste some of the best barbecue this side of the Rockies! Terrell’s Texas BBQ, out of Portland, Oregon, is slow-cooked to bring out the juicy tenderness of ribs and brisket. Award-winning and succulent, even southern-fried rednecks can’t help but glomp down on a spicy ‘Hot Mama’ and smile! Nomnomnomnomnom…

Here are just a few of the pictures I took today. The sun came out after some refreshing rains; we even had a thunderstorm blow through, clearing away the dryness and bringing much-needed fresh air and moisture. Very nice and relaxing.

Friday Fun & Music

The game-streams are going well and much fun is being had by all. Here are three songs about “she,” and “she” is me. My friends know what I’m talking about.

Three On Thursday

In honour of the birthday of Roger Waters, co-founder of the epic rock group Pink Floyd, I offer up five excellent songs for this Thursday.

Enjoy the ride.

Tuesday Afternoon

September already. The year has flown by quickly since time flies when one is having fun!

My Facebook, Twitch, and Instagram accounts have a modest following. I love the fact that I haven’t had to jump through ridiculous hoops to gain an audience, and the support is genuine. People actually notice your participation and give you props.

The local air has finally cleared of the smoke from the fires in and around Washington state. Usually the coast isn’t affected much by fires further inland, but the weather patterns this year made for no offshore winds and stagnant air pressed down on us like an old, dusty veil.

Now that the air is better we could finish up some of the yardwork and landscaping begun over a month ago. The shrubberies have been cut back to reasonable size again, and the local deer have come through to graze on the clippings and the foliage they couldn’t reach. Plenty of new fawns this season mean that they are healthy and still got plenty to eat and drink, even with the lack of rain.

People are back at work after the holiday weekend and school has resumed for those who attend regularly. It’s a nice Tuesday afternoon, so here are three songs for your audial appreciation.
