The Fourth turned out to be really fun. I went to Faythe's, her boyfriend Ryan BBQed some awesome beef and pork, and along with Ryan's friend Doug, and fun and interesting conversation late into the evening. Most of the talk centered around music. I can't tell you how much I enjoyed talking with like-minded people about something that is such a part of my life. I don't really blog about music too much, but I love it. All of it. (Country music, not so much.) The last time I called my friend Elizabeth it was because Seasons In The Sun was on the radio. Such is the way music, even a crappy Terry Jacks song, affects me. And the other night we didn't even get to my love of funk, soul and disco! Well, that's a conversation for another day. So now I am going to my Netflix and seeing if they have the old PBS nine-part-documentary called Rock and Roll. I have the whole thing on VHS and nothing to play it on anymore. My favorite part was the one that started with James Brown and went through the soul and funk all the way to disco. If you never saw this series and you like music, it is a must. Ok gotta go so I can do this before work, happy Friday from a music lover, and remember:
"We had joy, we had fun, we had seasons in the sun,
But the stars we could reach, were just starfish on the beach."
That's so deep!
