I’m Still Alive

Video

Seems like a good Weekend music post for a week in which we went four days without posting. That’s never happened. Even that time I officially shuttered the blog to smother some nasty business, we didn’t go that long.

First time for everything, I guess.

Anyway, I’m still about — just haven’t been on the internet much for a couple of weeks.

I let the contributors know this several days ago, and I see no reason not to let the rest of you in on it now. As many of you know, October-December is planning season for me. It’s the time of year when I start thinking about what my blogging is going to look like come January and do whatever redesign, etc. I feel is necessary.

We’re about a month away from the two-year anniversary of this blog. I’m evaluating my position and trying to decide whether to go a third year with it. If I do, we’ll probably have two off-days built in. If not, I’ll be doing some other blogging thing.

Either way, I’ve no plans to quit blogging, nor to lose touch with the friends I’ve made since I started this little experiment.

Happy weekend!

Weekend Music: Imagine

I was gonna wax eloquent about Queen and other things today. Thank your lucky stars I decided not to inflict that on you, and enjoy the video.

Have a good weekend, and rest assured there’s more to come.

Always more to come with this blog.

Deep thought: Before a thing that hasn’t existed ever before can become real, someone must imagine it. That’s the first step.

Now clap your hands if you believe in fairies.

Hand-clapping on the thread is an approved method of interaction today.

Also good: Finger-snapping, I’ll take finger-snaps all day long. You classroom-managers KNOW what I’m talking about. Mass finger-snapping is one of the most beautiful phenomena in all of creation. It’s quiet and busy at the same time. That is a killer combination.

Keep blogging, people. Just. Keep. Blogging.

Weekend Music: The King is Gone (But He’s Not Forgotten)

Video

Neil Young at Toronto. Notable for the excellence of the harmonica work. One of those songs no one except the person who wrote it can play correctly. You don’t want your kids to internalize this attitude, but it is a way of thinking the 60s and 70s produced in North America. Great performance here. Watching this video is like standing in front of a large monument.

On to business.

No business today. Stop by tomorrow for a Fear the Walking Dead post from Luther, and read his damn blog, y’all.

Coffee here on Sunday, and we’re working on some things for next week which might include a Sourcerer’s 11 interview with author/blogger extraordinaire Alex Hurst.

Have a great weekend!
