Friday 5 for September 22: Don’t tip the boat over

Shades of The Hues Corporation for a song that is only a few years younger than you Mr. Scrivener. "Don't rock the boat, don't tip the boat over." I remember when the song went to #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 as Casey Kasem counted the hits down on American Top 40 back in the summer of 1974.

Anyways here are my answers to these disco music inspired questions.

1. When did you most recently feel you should be dancing?

Not in this century. Back in the late 1970s and early 1980s I did some stints as a disco DJ... that was another lifetime ago, though all of the songs linked to in these questions were popular dance numbers at the time I was working.

2. What hot stuff have you recently consumed?

Black pepper? Mostly seasoning on stuff. A recent Saffron Road microwave dinner was quite spicy hot.

3. What kind of side-hustle would be fun to try?

I don't know if I would be relevant now, but mobile DJ again. However today it is probably real easy as you can load your entire dance trax and much more into a laptop computer(s). Back in the day it was a couple of crates of heavy LPs, 45s and 12 inch singles - and then there is the heavy gear.. nope not going there. Plus no one worried about copyright and public airplay back in those days.

Probably a better one would be radio DJ if that were available, but most radio stations are all computerized.

Other than that I have done freelance desktop publishing and wedding photography in the past. The latter is too stressful to cope with at my advanced age. Was fun in the film days because not everyone was good at shooting photos in those days, and no one had a smartphone or digital camera.

4. What were some of this summer’s good times?

None. I'm just plodding through life at my slow, mundane, old way.

5. What are your plans for Saturday night?

More than likely staying home, watching a movie and maybe ordering a pizza to go. 

S A T U R D A Y   night!!!!
