|09:30 am - Han shot first, and Jimmy is back in my life|
This morning, I was listening to Jimmy, something I haven't really done in a while. I admit, I take a bit of crap for playing it so often, and it does make me less likely to play it, but I've really been missing Jimmy recently.
This morning, though, was actually me listening to a cover he did of "Sail On Sailor".
I wrest the waters, fight Neptune's waters
Sail through the sorrows, of life's maurauders
Unrepenting, often empty
Sail on, sail on sailor
Like my experience with the Pinball Wizard a couple weeks ago, there was something here I hadn't heard before.
I think, though I'm not entirely certain, that I heard:
Of course, this might have to do with the line,
Heartbreaks nearing, always fearing, never caring, persevering
Because, you know, the word "persevering" appears there and all.
But last night, last night I felt truly happy as I stood in a puddle of water up to my ankles in the WalMart parking lot, holding a quart and a half of french vanilla ice cream and the DVD's of:(For those concerened about my shopping habits, the DVD's were purchased down the street at Best Buy. Only the ice cream was bought at WalMart.)
I haven't figured out why I felt so darn happy at that point. I think it was because each of those videos has a connection to friends and people I truly, deeply love, and obtaining all of them at once, and standing with them in a puddle in the rain (oh, the associations I have with rain). . . I think that was it. it was good. And it was good that it was good. And yeah, I was really very happy.
My oracle for today was simple and explicit:
209. Nobody left to blame; nobody but you.Oh, how right you are, Jimmy. Personal responsibility is truly the deepest lesson of Buffett music for me. It's my own damn fault.

wrong new old
Argh! They still can't get it right?! I hate that ring!
I noticed that in the TV ads for those DVDs, and assumed it was from the newer version.
Still gotta hang on to my old videotapes then. Too bad they're not widescreen.
Know of anything else in the content not as it was in the 80s?

Re: wrong new old
Okay, I just found out...apparently it comes with two disk. Disk one is the *newer* version with the added ring..... the second disk is the THEATRICAL VERSION...no changes what so ever....
I still haven't gotten mine, cuase well I saw the ad with the ring in it...
What?! It was supposed to be theatrical cut! Anyhow, was about to go on about how envious I was ... suppose I'm not so envious any longer.
