“Writer's block is the greatest side effect of boredom”
Jason Zebehazy, someone who comes up with quotes

In most of southern California it’s a beautiful weekend, but where I live it makes Dorothy’s Kansas look calm. The wind has not stopped since Friday. The flags at the fire station have been snapping constantly and I am waiting for the flying monkeys from Oz to screech by momentarily. I have hid in the house kept the shades drawn to avoid the house from getting too hot.
I have found this latest attack from Hillary on Obama’s use of the word "bitter" to be even more ridiculous than the Rev. Wright nonsense. Hillary blatantly lies about sniper fire and Bill comes out and lies about it even further and they have the audacity to jump on the word bitter!
Daughter and I went to Hollywood last weekend to see the Rolling Stones movie “Shine a Light.” It was a typical stones movie; there were a couple of humorous moments as Martin Scorsese juxtaposed early Stones’ interviews with the concert footage. My favorite moments were when Jack White sang “Loving Cup” with Mick and Buddy Guy sang “Champagne and Reefer” with Mick.
On The Mark has been posting some thought provoking posts, B2 posted, and I can’t think of a thing to write about. I guess this would be writer’s block if I believed in such a thing.

Here is a random 10 selection:
1 “Love Minus Zero” by Bob Dylan
2 “Getting Hungry” by The Faces
3 “Cry Me a River” by Joe Cocker
4 “Almost” by Bowling for Soup
5 “Death Don’t have No Mercy" by the Grateful Dead
6 “Academia” by Sia (I didn’t even know I had this. It’s from the Paste Magazine sampler CD)
7 “Stolen Moments” by Ahmad Jamal Trio
8 “In the Darkest Place” by Burt Bacharach/Elvis Costello
9 “You Don’t Have a Heart” by Shelby Lynn
10 “Sweet to Mend" by Heirloom Projector (another Paste Magazine sampler)

If you like Sia, try her tune, "Breathe Me" -- it was used n the ifnal sequence from the finale of the HBO series, "Six Feet Under," and it's great. The sequence it was used over was also awesome, as any fan will confirm.
