I Was So Much Older Then

What the fuck is wrong with today, all I want to listen to is music from my youth.  You know it is a bad day when you start out with "Bartender Blues" by the Possum (GJ), and move right on to Willie Nelson's "You Were Always on my Mind" in remembrance of a sheep.

Then I sit here and listen to James Taylor, Crosby, Stills and Nash, right on into Cat Stevens, and I am doing the dishes.  Reading some of the comments I wonder, what the hell is wrong with people, I have had my fill of people, just do not want to interact with them anymore.  Sometimes it seems like everyone is okay on the web, and then I think, well shit they are out there, in their little fox holes, waiting for the next troll to land a near miss.

Watching the "Voice" the other day, I realize that most of the people I know as great artist would not make it in today's music scene.  How sad would it have been if we had never had Jim Croce, or Jimi Hendrix?  Certainly would not have the troubadour, Bob Dylan, or the siren song of Joni Mitchell.  The era of the singer/songwriter is gone, maybe forever, or maybe they just are no longer given the time of day, and since all I have to provide me a window on the world, as sad as it is, is the web, and they just don't show up on my searches, because I did not put in the right key words.

Well I am just pissing vinegar and I have dishes to do, sap to cook, fire to tend to, and the rest of my dull existence that I love so much.

Piss off;
JD
