Rock and Lame

Here is something different for me, at least in recent weeks (as usual too lazy to go back and check how many): I am making my Lame Post Friday post on Friday.  Just to give you a picture:  I am lounged on my couch, Tablet on lap, stylus in hand, glass of wine nearby, ’70’s music on cable television.

Yes, let me reflect for a moment on those lovely ’70’s tunes.  In addition to being some of the sweetest music ever recorded, I keep flashing back.  Oh, junior high and high school!  It was far from the best of times, but, man, what a soundtrack! I think if I manage to get back into writing novels I will set them in the ’70’s or ’80’s, just for the music.

I have been grooving to Classic Rock at work sometimes, when somebody brings in a radio and tunes it to 92.7 The Drive out of Utica, NY.  I especially like Genessee Joe.  My co-workers are quite amused when I bogey down to some of the tunes, although I am sure most of them understand the impulse (full disclosure: I do the same thing in the supermarket).

I confess that the nostalgia is not always painless.  As I said, not the best of times.  But I learned then as I remember now:  Music is magic.  It can make you feel better.  Can it make you do better?  Well, I made a 200 word Lame Post Friday post on Friday.  I call that a win.  Rock on!
