Thanks, I wouldn’t have seen this. Very funny

Thank you, BC! It’s great to know that someone heard it. It was fun to make. I dig the guitar line too. Came in an instant. So simple. Those are often the best ones.

Cheers!

Thank you for listening, lil. I’m glad to hear from you :)

They so no guts no glory

But they sure left in a hurry

Don’t want to know what the future holds

I don’t know what I don’t know

I’ve been walking past the church

Where I prayed for all this stuff

And the only thing I want to take

Are the memories, the memories

You were all of 19

You swore you’d never give in

Just look at you now

Looks like another broken promise

I go walking passed the church

Where I prayed for all this stuff

And the only thing I want to keep

Visits me when I sleep

I go walking passed the house

See the shell where the key was

And the only thing I want to take

Are the memories, the memories

Talk about life and science and all these other things.

We’ve got a lot to live for and that’s a real thing.

I have kids. All I hear are Lin Manuel Miranda songs.

I’m not is down on collegiate sports as you seem to be. I have a number of friends that were college athletes and had very positive experiences. I have a friend that is a heart surgeon and was a collegiate swimmer. Based on how much reverence he gives that part of his life, I don’t think he’d change it at all. I also think the discipline he had in swimming fed into his medical discipline. My guess is women get the same fulfillment from such an experience. I think it would be unfortunate if “sex divided,” sports ended. I have two daughters and they both love sports.

I saw David Grisman perform back in… Maybe 1997 in Bozeman Montana. I distinctly remember that this is when I realized how much I hated hippies. His performance was awesome, I really loved the music. I went upfront to be closer and stood and watched a really great virtuoso on the mandolin. Then, some asshole in patched pants ordained with hemp necklaces and bracelets said, “hey man if you’re not gonna dance then why are you here?” Then he proceeded to spin in the predictable circles that are the hippie mating dance.” I’ll never forget that idiot.

But the music was legit!

I am having a root canal on Monday. Lots of dental pain. No fun.

The world is in a state.

I miss my grandparents.

The Ukrainians are badass.
