Why Is This Post Different From All Other Posts?
Happy Passover and/or Easter and/or (my personal favorite) April Fool’s Day!
I am working on my next post which, apropos of being half-Jewish/half-Christian (and 100% non-observant, Agnostic, lapsed vegetarian — but those are stories for other posts), deals with the different ways that Jews and Christians use a certain word.
In the meantime, please check out my new music-oriented blog DJ MJD’s Back Tracks. http://djmjd.wordpress.com/
Back in the day (and the particular day I’m remembering must have been in 1987), I used to make elaborate mix cassettes, cross-fading dialog from my VHS copy of Apocalypse Now with tracks from phonograph records by Echo & the Bunnymen, Robbie Robertson and Los Lobos (and let’s not forget Warren Zevon’s Sentimental Hygiene album). It was tricky back then, you had to drop the needle into the groove just before the song started and hit the record button at the same time — and getting all those levels correct was a pain too. Now, with digital recording, it’s incredibly easy— nevertheless, I’ll just be posting one song a week.
So… what have we learned?
- As technology improves, people get lazier (or at least one person — me).
Enjoy the surreal song by The Alpha Band.
