Art and Old Music

Check this out. It's macabre, but it's actually very pretty: http://shapeandcolour.wordpress.com/2008/10/10/david-maisel-library-of-dust/.



Also, I hopped in the way-back machine today. I put this in my CD player on the way to work:



Oh yes, I remember when I was in about the second grade. My parents had this album. It was one of the first albums I remember. I listened to "Back Home Again," "On the Road," the AWESOME "Grandma's Feather Bed," and "Thank God I'm a Country Boy." I LOVED it. I sang at the top of my lungs. I got in the car to come home and repeated. If it's good enough for lather, rinse, it's certainly good enough for John Denver!



Incidentally, the other albums my parents had at this time:


I must admit "His Latest Flame" is one of my favorites from this one.



I remember listening to "Scarborough Fair" and thinking, "How can they be singing something I had to sing in music class?" Parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme? Really? Anyway, "The Boxer," "America," and "Homeward Bound" are all songs that can make me cry.


There's not a bad song on this one. Maybe there are some that are SAPPY, but I like them all.
Goodbye to Love, Superstar

I really like this one. "Southern Nights" and "Country Boy" are the two besides the title song that make me really happy. "Country Boy" is really good. Rhinestone Cowboy

Thanks for indulging my walk down pop music lane.

I think I missed some good music in my time. But my parents were fans of Glen Campbells gospel albums. I still love the Carpenters. I discovered them after I'd grown up...oh wait, did I?
