songaday volume 3 #21

for mr. h. s. thompson: out like a lamb

i didn't know hunter s thompson had died when i started making this song. specialfriend-pete broke the news. the song was already all written (but not performed). and it felt completely proper to dedicate it to him. a crazy fellow who influenced me. bye hunter.

a nod must also be made to mr tom waits on this one. thankfully he's still with us. and i'm sure it is clear that he is an influence on this particular songaday.

can i take a minute to puzzle (again) over this mysterious rss feed? ryanne and steve garfield were compelled to get me rolling with this dealy (for which i still thank them...). inasmuch as i can tell, it allows people to "subscribe" to my blog and then automatically get it. right? (or else it is a german built flying car with tires that are also radios.) anyways, all it is doing is wreaking havoc on my delicate ego. one day i'll have 17 people. the next, 5. was it something i said?

okay, fine, my ego isn't that delicate...

RADIO TIRE!

rock on forever to the sound of freedom and free things such as birds, bicycles, and carnie folk.
and if you have a chance, take some lsd. do it for hunter.

Marty-
The number of readers as reported by Feedburner is approximate. Here is their explanation:

"An approximate measure of the number of individuals for whom your feed has been requested in the last 24 hours. Circulation is inferred from an analysis of the many different feed readers and aggregators that retrieve this feed daily. Circulation is not computed for browsers and bots that access your feed. Circulation is calculated by matching IP address and news reader combinations, and then using our detailed understanding of the multitude of readers and aggregators and bots on the market to make additional inferences."

ok. a couple of things. the first thing is this:
some days i'm okay. and other days i'm great. some days are songaday days. other days i'm glad i saved a few up, because i really needed them. some days it is nice to miss them and notice that something is missing. other days it is nice to listen to them all again.
the second thing is this:
i wish i could have had the chance to see you collaborate with rowlf the dog.
and the final thing is that i am glad that you are doing such amazing things with your time, and i thank you for sharing them with the world.
(this song being only one out of a bazillion examples)

Holy Shit! Jim Morrison is still alive! He's singing on this song. I heard him man. And he sounds great. This is my favorite song I've heard you do. You're singing with some balls. Keep on using those balls. It sounds good.
