On and on and on

Just a quick note to take care of some Rob Report business. The out-of-staters should finally be receiving their Perfect Pop Songs Vol. 2 CDs in the next few days. For those who might not be following the action down in the comments, Janelle quickly figured out how to use the internets and cahnged her name from Anonymous to J-Bell and thus gets the fourth disc. H.L., unfortunately was too late getting there. And despite his logical and reasoned argument that J corrected herself in the wrong comments thread and thus is ineligible to recieve the CD, the judges hastily and emotionally ruled in her favor. But H.L. is smart and his powers of persuasion are legendary, going all the way back to an 8th-grade GT when he successfully argued against some poor, ill prepared classmate in open debate that plastic surgery was morally wrong. H.L. will get his disc.

And, Becky and I watched "The Prestige" over the weekend. Wanting to get back into the review game, I'll post my take on the movie before the end of the week. So there ya go. TTFN, faithful readers.

WE GOT OUR CD!!!! WAHOO! We're still listening so we'll let you know the final verdict. So far so good! good! good!

We listened to Diana's CD. Nice stuff even for a retiree. And H.L. will always take the opposing view and win the argument. Significant things like, do leaves grow on trees or Bush a republican? Things like that.

A couple days ago I woke several hours before the sunrise, as is my practice, showered, dressed, and hurried into my cold, dark car. I opened the small envelope with buublewrap inside and slipped the cd into my car's player. As I rode through dark neighborhoods and over dark streets I heard the entrancing grate of Tom Petty's voice sing "I'm passing sleeping cities, fading by degrees," and it was like hearing my own emotions blare through my car stereo speakers. Like existing suspended in the dark vacuum of my car with a pounding purpose in my head.

Thanks for that.

I was almost right their with you H. The only time I get up in the dark is to feed my child. Rob, you are too good to involve us in your evolving world of music. Its always a good ride.

Nothing pleases me more than stories like that, H. And D, it wouldn't be fun if there were no one to bring along. "It's a musical journey, that's really what it is."

Elvis never just played a car salesman. He played a car salesman who played a guitar.

I wish he hadn't been buried in the the back garden, I really wish he'd been buried somewhere where I couldn't have gone.

Nicely played, H.

So...The surprise track 15...Rob that was awesome to listen to. Where did you find it? I must say that at first it sounded a little bit like Richard Cheese. But then of course it wasnt. That's a very velvety rendition. So cool
