It's not quite over just yet... the week that is. I'm thankful that it is Friday though, that's for certain.
Lately I've just been listening to tunes, watching a little t.v. here and there and catching up on some housework when I can.
Last weekend, I happened to see "The Shining" and I sat back and watched it (almost) in its entirety. That brought back some memories... Classic. Let's see, other than that I noticed that "Sometimes They Come Back Again" came on, but I really prefer "Sometimes They Come Back". "The Stand" also aired... all of the parts, like a marathon. I can't abide "The Stand". Maybe I should read the book sometimes if I have time, as I am told that the book really shames the movie anyway... don't they usually?
Other than that, I don't have much to report. Still feeling the need for a nice escape soon... I would love to take a week's vacation and go somwhere really neato, but I doubt I will get to. I never get to go many places, it's just time for life to be boring and uneventful I guess. I'll take uneventful over tragic any day, but I would like a little bit of excitement or something. Playing gigs is fun, maybe that will help out since we have a few planned in the coming couple months... who knows.
There is one song that I have been thinking would be cool to do for some time now, and it's called "The Book Of Love". Yes, I know that's quite a romantic selection, but when played accoustically, kind of 'folky' I rather enjoy this tune... Maybe I'll save it for next time I play for someone's wedding, or maybe I will attend that "Thursday Night Pickin Party" they have at Kudzu's and sing it with those guys... I have heard the Peter Gabriel version, and I heard it also on the movie entitled "The Book Of Love", but so far the best version I ran across was on YouTube. These girls don't appear to be very well known, but I really liked what they did with it. Hope you enjoy it as I did, and as well, have a great weekend!
