For some reason they are not showing up on my screen-maybe it needs to be updated, I don't know.
Anyway, Happy Thanksgiving, Nic!
A beautiful song, and a beautiful tribute. Thank you, Nik.
Oh No, you're not alone, that's so Beautiful. It's exactly what I needed to hear today. Thank you Nikolai.
Sorry I didn't see your comment sooner Virgil. Yeah, you didn't see me say "I love it." :]
About the magazines; well, I know, and as I said, I said something but after that I forgot it, I've done my part. Thing is, the waste just pains me, almost literally. And I don't know if this is normal for places that produce, but in my experience it's very normal. I guess corporations can't help it, they're blind entities. But it could be a better way.
Sounds like a real vision.
Work is always good Nik. Be grateful you have a job. Look for another if you don't like it, but don't in heaven's name quit first. One should always be working.
As to the magazines, what's the big deal? What did you expect that they be stitched by hand? Anyway the internet is destroying the whole newspaper and magazine business.
You embody enlightenment.
I feel like this could be placed in a buddhist text and not be overlooked.
Yes it is. About the magazines, I just thought I would say something; otherwise it's not on my mind. Yeah this is the toughest job I've ever had - hard labor at a frenetic pace - but don't get me wrong, I love it. There's a lot of benefit to be had from hard work, in fact genuinely spiritual, if you maintain a clear and positive frame of mind. I've never worked 12 hour shifts, either, and that leaves a precious 4 hours of time to do anything in personal time; but the upshot of that, too, is that time is much more valuable to you then.
I'll look forward to reading you posts, Nik. Work is work; it's good to be employed.
I love the blues! I don't have any Booker White in my collection. I didn't realize what an outstanding guitarist he was. Thanks.
Here's one back at you, Robert Johnson, the man they say that started it all:
No, it isn't that, although the brain does release the chemical DMT when you sleep.
:lol: It does sound like dope! I need that!
I don't know what kind of good dope you smoke, but I wouldn't mind some.
Interesting. I have trouble with bad dreams and sleep disturbance, which have plagued me from childhood. I have tried to choose my conscious and subconscious, but somehow it doesn't work. I will continue trying, because it is my only hope.
Anyway, I'm glad this works for you. But thinking "I should have experienced worse" - that's really hard for me to grasp. How can you think that if you really don't believe it? I don't tend to think "I should have had better," it just is what it is.
yw Comedian and Virgil thx for giving it a listen Buh4Bee,
yeah Mutatis, I like Pentangle quite a bit too. Only know of their more popular stuff though, what's on Youtube and a greatest hits album I had once - that one was incredible. In fact there's a song from it I haven't heard in ages.. Omie Wise. I wonder if it's online.
OH and hey - have you ever heard of Jackson C Frank? I think I'm going to have to get re-acquainted with him...
His story is the most tragic.. his most famous song is probably Blues Run the Game, this link is a different one
Sounds pretty cool.
Yeah Nik, thanks. I just listened to him on youtube. He's got great range on the guitar. I think that's what you're responding to. I had never heard of him before, but I'll have to pick up an album or greatest hits if he's got one.
Did some good stuff with Penangle too. Still releasing albums I hear.
One of my teenage inspirations.
Thanks for the recommendation Nik.
