Yep some of the legends in popular music today. Billy Joel, Elton John, David Bowie, Dire Straits, Eric Clapton, Paul McCartney, etc.
I’ve got WAY more Eric Clapton on my iTunes then I thought. 27 albums with 401 songs, I don’t need that much! I really enjoy the “Unplugged” album. The first song is unplugged of course, instrumental and it got me hooked on that album…http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=owOGDEJr3ts The “Unplugged” live album is my go to Eric Clapton album. “Don’t get me wrong” his electric stuff is awesome! His acoustic stuff just seems more appealing to me. This is definitely not Eric Clapton! The Pretenders, music I grew up with. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P6u9C_SH3mQ Here’s a bit more from Eric Clapton’s acoustic album…http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VRsJlAJvOSM This was written acoustically for his young son who fell out of an apartment window and died at a very young age 3 or 4. I think that’s the story I heard? I’ll put a couple of electric songs for comparison, surprise!!!! I like both, here’s another acoustic song/version…
That’s enough links for the day. Yes, I started this early today. I woke up at “3am” tossed and turned until 6am listening to the most mellow music possible on my iPod, Jack Johnson, then just gave up. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C-Naa1HXeDQ I had my breakfast, did my exercise all before Kim woke up. Came in here and started this blog.
Both of us are planning to try out the exercise room later on. There’s a large Treadmill for Kim to run on and a recumbent exercise bike for me to use if I don’t fall asleep on the couch? Yes, I can do actual push ups on my hands & toes now, not from my hands and knees anymore. I made it to 15 push ups today at the end of my workout today. In University I’d read my books for class and take too many “study breaks” working out. Doing 40 push ups some, free weights and sit ups. I probably spent more time exercising than I did reading! Maybe that’s why I dropped out of engineering and went to SIAST?
Aren’t sports a “What have you done for me lately?” type of buisness? I was watching yeah, Blue Jays baseball last night, and was confused by the choices made by the organization. I’m not the be all and end all of baseball, but I did play the game for 13 years of my life. Why do Colby Rasmus, Adam Lind and rookie 2nd baseman Ryan Goins sit on the bench if there’s a left handed pitcher starting on the opposing team? Sure they’re all left handed players, but they’re also “every day players” not playing. How is the rookie supposed to learn to hit against left handed pitchers if he’s not given a chance?
My biggest problem with the team is that they’re playing without their “All-Star” short stop again. He’s getting $14,000,000/year yet missed more than half of the season last year. First at bat for the Blue Jays this year and he’s injured…again, didn’t even play in the field. So what has he done for the Jays lately? Trade him and his overpaid contract for a decent starting pitcher.
There’s obviously some reason he’s around, but I don’t know what it is?
