Hi, his daughter in Ireland. How are things so far away?

I'm coming out of the closet on this one. Here's my statement, I do not own an Ipod. Never have. Sometimes you gotta wonder how I make it through life without all the toys. I do pretty damned well.

I do not miss that which I have never had and I have too many things now that I would miss if I did not have them.

the only thing i find disturbing about the iPod is how isolating it can be. i was at a poker table a while back and there were six iPods on players. they were off in their own little worlds, in a large sense, not in the game. . .strange that something like music which can be a powerful community force has now become something intensly personal. we walk around singing along with bits and bytes instead of each other.

I can listen to the O, Brother Where Art Thou? all day. I'll Fly Away is especially close to my heart. 8^)

i have a soft spot for the soundtrack. just good old fashioned clean american music. the stanley brothers doing "angel band" is another gem.

Hi Minstrel Boy! It's been awhile. I'm listening to a rude and irreverent song a friend sent me. It's something I could never sing, would never sing, but I'm really enjoying listening to it. deb

i've enjoyed some pretty rude songs, even written a few that i don't perform often (like my tender love ballad "loving you's the dumbest fucking thing i've ever done"). rudeness has it's place. i was ruder when i was young and able to cash the checks my smart ass mouth would write.
