Friday 5 for August 31: Just Wing It

 As usual the questions comes from Scrivener's Friday 5 blog.


1. What’s something for which you are waiting your tern?

A better job.

2. What have you lately gone cuckoo for?

Records... though I have always been cuckoo for recorded media. So for like the longest time I did not buy vinyl records. I have a substantial collection which I had to pare down a few years ago. I also pared down my massive CD collection. Funny thing is that I don't miss the CDs very much that I got rid of, but I miss many of the vinyl records I let go. Now I want to get some of them back.

3. What’s got you feeling down?

My close friend's sad financial situation and her depressive state. All she needs is a good paying job that utilizes her incredible writing talent. If you can help contact me.

4. What’s something you acquired that was unexpectedly cheep?

While not unexpected, I do occasionally run into cheap, used records in very good condition. We're talking vinyl LPs... for 50 cents to a dollar each. I also love it when I find 45s in good condition at under a dollar each.

5. What’s that fowl smell?

$10+ billion Honolulu rail project. Biggest stinking waste of taxpayer money this century.

And with that song, I'm flying the coop!

  1. That You Can Tuna Piano... album is REO at its best. While Hi Infidelity might be the closest they come to a perfect album (side 1 is one of the best album sides of my youth), it was sorta the beginning of the creative end for them. If I ever truly pare down the collection, You Can Tune a Piano... will be one of the ones I hang onto. And "Roll with the Changes" is my number 1 all-time driveway song. I cannot get out of the car if this is on the radio. I miss this REO! :)
