First....apologies. I know I have not been here for you, but I have found other things to consume my time which is my most precious commodity.
ROCK-N-ROLL---here we go!
I broke over 10,000 songs about a month ago....no fanfare, Apple didn't come and give me any free itunes or anything. Breaking 10,000 songs took ME, over 3 years. It's a lot of music. Not sure when I will ever get to listen to it all, but I have it nonetheless. I also am not working towards any more ipod goals either.
why I am posting 2nite.
seems I caught a live show, tonite and by myself to boot. I have several friends (Tony-Mark-Bill) that catch movies by themselves ALL the time. I have never, ever been to a movie by myself....it just doesn't seem right.
I started going to concerts by myself last summer. First it was Guster w/Ray LaMontagne and then Devotchka. The Guster show did not go that well....the Devotchka show did. Before I go any further....let me say that LaMontagne and Devotchka are INCREDIBLE bands. I highly recommend their albums and shows to anyone.
They leave EVERYTHING out there....let's say a big E for effort.
Effort is important. Passion comes to mind.
Tonite, at the very last minute. I went and got 3rd row seats @ the TLA which is a very small venue on South Street in Philly. I went to Jim's and got the obligatory scrumptious cheesesteak wit wiz and onions....what can I say....I could make a whole blog post on the cheesesteak from Jim's.
Tonite I saw Lindsey Buckingham---1st off he's a guy and secondly he is an artist. Phenomenal show. Great venue. I got to play the guitar; I was touching his strings during Go your own Way; which is a big Fleetwood Mac hit. That's who Lindsey is---Fleetwood Mac's guitar player--but what he really is is Lindsey Buckingham--guitar master.
Live music---when done right---is amazing.
God is amazing all the time---for He is what is good and right.
I went by myself- I had a blast. I met some cool people and I witnessed some not so cool people. But, what I really did is cut loose and enjoy the day---afterall it was March 27, 2007. Which, as of this writting was completed 3 minutes ago. Which brings us to the true meaning of this post----today is march 28, 2007...it is THE ONLY ONE EVER!
experience today with passion and love.
feel the sunshine....gaze @ the sky. look at the world anew.
know that you were made in God's image.
He loves you.
Show that love to all.....no, really show that love to all.
