It has been a very long time since I’ve written a simple journal entry. As I’ve said before, I miss the “old” internet which was wild, open and free. Now that it is being used more for business purposes (information collecting = to target ads and other purposes) I just don’t have the same will to get on here and freely write as I used to. Perhaps that is only one of the reasons. The other may be I’m 35 and thus am a bit more cautious. 🙂
Anyway, I went to Yoshi’s Oakland for the first time yesterday. My neighbor is very much into guitars and he asked me to go. I thought it might be a nice guys night out so even though I’m not into this type of music I was curious to go see Yoshi’s and perhaps broaden my musical tastes. The artist was Robben Ford and I have to say I wasn’t blown away at first. However, I’ve been listening to his music today and it is growing on me. I particularly like the piece “On That Morning” and am playing it over and over. It is a great “chill out” song for a lonely Saturday. Not that I’m lonely mind you, the wife and kid are in bed so I can just pretend to be lonely while listening to this song and perhaps get into the proper mood in which I believe this music would be most enjoyed: lonely yet not entirely sad, a mellow calm. One who is remembers with fondness nights not so long ago in various lounges but of a different era, an era long gone yet lives still in the occasional eye contact or the aroma of a certain type of cigarette.
My my, what has this music done to me? Let the music guide my mind where it will and write down what it shows me. I think I may have a new fun activity! Well, I shouldn’t be so rude. Here is the song.
