Maybe I'd a done some good in the world...

A coworker recently said something along the lines of "I just want to do good things for people & get paid well for it". I think there's both an oxymoron & some truth to that statement. The oxymoron comes from the fact that I half believe that a good deed is one that doesn't get rewarded. The truth comes from the fact that I believe it's what just about everybody in the world is looking for. Selling paint isn't the most rewarding of occupations at the moment, if it ever was. I have a job, though, so I shouldn't complain. But I do, 'cause I can.

Five Favorite Songs of the Day

The Pick-Up-Sufjan Stevens, The Avalanche

Ring Them Bells-Bob Dylan, Tell Tale Signs

This song has been in constant rotation lately. On the way home from Detroit the other day, I posed the question to Christie, what is the difference between two people's brains that makes one of them think this is brilliant & the other to think it's crap?

"they're breaking down the difference between right & wrong"

Stop Breaking Down-Robert Johnson

"this stuff I got's gonna bust your brains out, gonna make you lose your mind"

Frankie & Albert-Mississippi John Hurt

We Call Upon the Auther-Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, Dig! Lazarus Dig!

Happy Wednesday, friends...

You know what they say, "One man's trash is another man's treasure!" I like number 4, 1's ok if I could understand his words, 2 is interesting--but #3 --that's my trash--you know me and whiny guitars!

The answer to the question you posed to Christie is "prior knowledge". Teacher's have been taught about prior knowledge. You react to everything depending upon what has brought you to that point. I want to get to know Sufjan Stevens music.
