A few nights ago, I couldn’t sleep so I woke up and put on the television. I happened upon the end of an old Pink Panther movie, with Peter Sellers (think it was Revenge of the Pink Panther but I’m not quite sure.) Those old movies were incredibly funny, I really got a chuckle out of them. I wish I could get the entire set on DVD. Actually, I’m sure they make the DVDs, I just haven’t gone out to buy them.
Over the past few days, I’ve heard the Bob Dylan song “When I paint my Materpiece” about eight times. Yesterday, I found out that Bob Dylan celebrated a birthday this week, I suppose that’s the reasoning behind all the recent airplay. Kind of surprises me that they would hone in on one song like that but then, I guess, it doesn’t really. I mean how many times do radio stations play the same top 40 songs all day long? Why should Bob Dylan music be any different? At least, in this case, it was a good song and it was kind of fun hearing various artists’ interpretations of it. I also happened upon “You Ain’t Going Nowhere” a few times. That’s a classic, especially the part about the easy chair. I just don’t know what to make of the bride coming but then, that’s Dylan for you.
Ken insists that I only listen to Eric Clapton remixes of remixes of remixes, simply because I once put Unplugged on when he was there. He also yelled at me for putting on the Gypsy Kings. I guess he thinks I’m caught up in classics and not really up with the new stuff. I suppose that’s true, a bit anyway, but I also love Los Lonely Boys and I’ve always hated Elvis.
Yes, you read that right. I HATE ELVIS. There, I said it. Give me Chuck Berry over Elvis anyday. Besides, I think poor Elvis has been dead for a year or two, unless you count all of the impersonating fake Elvii running around in Vegas. And you know how I feel about things running around in Vegas (it all reminds me too much of Ted.)
Wish I could paint them all pink, make them wear tu-tus, and splash into the pool like the various cars in the Pink Panther movies. Now THAT would be entertainment.
Until next time…
