Foo-based Blog Topics

Brogan is selling them. Others giving them away for free.
Decided I wanted some inspiration and found it a few weeks ago with the release of the Foo Fighter's Wasting Light album. I wrote about the first  line of the first song was "These are my famous words" and I asked, what would yours be (in 140 characters of course).

So what about the rest of the songs? Turns out Grohl gives food for thought.

"A Matter of Time" opens with "Let's change the subject to someone else."

"Back and Forth" starts with "Once upon a time, I was someone else"

"Arlandria's" first line is "Ain't that the way it always starts, a simple round of conversation."

"I Shoulda Known" starts with the predicable "I should have known it would end this way."

"White Limo," one of the least understandable songs in history, opens with "I'll take it out of the wishing well."

"Walk's opening line is "A million miles away, your signal in the distance."

I like the opening of "Rope" alot: "This indecision got me climbing up the walls." (Sounds like Gini D's latest post was written with this in mind.)

Or maybe it was "These Days": "One of these days the ground will drop out from beneath your feet."

"Miss the Misery" opens with "If I had my way; If I had to lose, Wouldn't take back one thing; Never had much to choose."

Finally, the tough "Dear Rosemary": "You got away from me;  now, get away from me."

Sure these might not help you, but I am going to try and post based on them in the next few weeks. Where are you getting your oddball post ideas?

Slow Death or Rebirth for Myspace?

  Are we really watching the slow inevitable death of Myspace? With the integration with Facebook complete and  the push towards what appears to be a mobile only function , isn't it time to call this one? One report says that Myspace is making $200 million less this year. They are functionally giving up on Myspace Music , which was always their bread and butter. Without the music tie in, why would people BOTHER with Myspace? I'm talking about it because my wife's band has used every medium known to mankind to promote themselves online and Myspace has been nothing but dead weight from the very beginning. Only bands and their most ardent fans go there. The rest are on Facebook.  There is talk of selling Myspace, but who in their right mind would consider it? This will have some interesting implications for bands down the road. Many use Myspace as their de facto website, just pushing their domain name onto the customizable site. Now apparently, Reverbnation , a North Carolin

New Life

  It's weird, sad and slightly freeing. I've been headed towards a completely different life for a lot longer than I even knew. It took me a while to catch up to realize it was happening.  Thankfully, I was cognizant enough to see it finally and mostly ready for it. It's amazing when you have the rug completely pulled out from underneath you. The adjustments are jarring.  I made mistakes, but like most I learned from them, adapted, and tried my best to do better. The reason you see that truck next to a storage place? That's the sum of my life right now.  Never take for granted that you will work hard for something or someone, and it will end up meaning very little. You are guaranteed nothing, owed nothing, promised nothing. Anything and everything can be taken away in a heartbeat.  I wrote this to my kids a while back: I tried to be the best father I could be based on what I knew when I knew it and how I could. One of the lessons for your life needs to be: you need to b
