Jande BS-ish:contemplating someone elses navel (46) RE: BS-ish:contemplating someone elses navel 16 Jul 01

I agree wholeheartedly with Whistle Stop!

I couldn't believe my ears the other day when my partner drove up to the gas pumps and they were playing the theme from Star Wars (great music!)right out of the top of the gas pump! Before I could make a judgement as to whether this was "good" or "bad", a man began doing a commercial right over top of the music --for items that the gas station could provide while we were filling up!

We vowed we would never again purchase gas there. All this push stuff is making hermits out of sensitive people. And it's everywhere. I can't open my browser sometimes without some website tossing so many java-blown extra windows onto my desktop that Norton System Works AND Zone Alarm both hit the panic button.

I'm frankly disgusted with this constant invasion of privacy and psychic space. How can we, as individuals, seek out new music and new musicians when we are constanty trying to stop the incoming flood?

As far as navel contemplation goes... I think it behooves us to look closely at ourselves and know to the best of our ability who we are --then give that to the people who appreciate us, whether that be friends, loved ones or audiences for our music. I agree that some do this with much more talent and creativity than others. I only hope that my music falls into that category.

From what I heard, Bob Dylan wrote a song that I've always loved as a sweet and romantic one about a man loving a woman. I don'rt really care that it was originally written about his dog, "Lady".

Was it Rod Stewart that wrote a gorgeous romantic song (whose title escapes me, atm) that always sends a shiver down my spine. I don't care that he originally wrote it for a football team! LOL! Some things are just universal by nature. [IMHO]
