A Man Who Has Nothing In Particular To Recommend Him Discusses All Sorts of Subjects at Random as Though He Knew Everything

Things Are Different Today, I Hear Evry Muvah Say

I noticed this video was posted to YouTube three years ago, almost to the day. I notice all sorts of things..

I can’t help but notice that the cat is dead. I’ve noticed that my wife misses that cat. He lived forever, but not forever enough. It’s a testament to how accustomed animals become to being around a family, and vice-versa, that he wanders in and out of a trap set and amplifiers and isn’t spooked, and doesn’t spook anyone, either.

I noticed that if it was posted to YouTube on April 28th, 2013, that means that it was recorded well before that, because my boys’ video editing rig has always been pretty barbarous, and it takes a long time to get anything out the door. That means it might have been recorded in late March, when the drummer was still nine years old. Yikes. I noticed he’s like four inches taller than his mother now.

I especially noticed that the boys recorded this out on our front porch three years ago, nearly to the day, because it’s been snowing here for the past three hours.

  1. A little light 'Global Warming' coming down? Yeah, not that unusual for New England, but not the palm trees Al Gore threatened us would be here by now. (If his global warming kills off the maple trees and we do get palm trees can we tap them for margaritas?)

    The outdoors garden center where I buy my plants the owner is tearing his hair out, he can't bring in valuable plants in this weather and no one is interested in buying yet. Another short growing season I think. However 'Road Work' season has started right on time.

    Do you have replacement cats? It's been a while since I've lived with any felines, now I'm seeing a widow woman with two. Yup, I'm still allergic.

  2. Very well done. Minor point: While Wes Montgomery and others performed Yesterdays, Jerome Kern was the composer.
