One Man's Music, Part II

Quote Of The Day: Vance Bourjaily -- The mark of a good party is that you wake up the next morning wanting to change your name and start life in a different city.

I'm a list freak.  No, really.  I keep track of every book i read, and of every film i watch.  And i've just started keeping track of every CD i listen to (see previous post).

I'm also not a professional, full-time blogger.  In the four years i've been writing this, i've made something like $13 (or 10 Euros, or 8 pounds), so i won't be retiring to Tahiti any time soon.  I have a full-time job as a galley slave, low pay, poor working conditions, blah blah, moan, groan, but it pays the rent and the monthly bills (just barely).

My point (which i'm striving to get to) is that in last week's post, i included images of the covers of every album i'd listened to, but i simply don't have time to Google Image Search the graphics.  So all you get is a simple list.  Sorry.

Here 'tis:

Fairport Convention, "The Wood And The Wire,"
Buddy Guy, "Live: The Real Deal"
Steve Marriott & The D.T.s -- "Sing The Blues"

And here's a picture of Kate Bush, simply because i love this pic:

And it's my birthday today, and here's what i'll be celebrating with:

I may complain about life occasionally, but it's still preferable to the alternative!
