|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.

Warner Bros announced in January of this year that they intend to do a release next year. You can't order it yet and there is some healthy skepticism surrounding this plan, so holding onto the one you just bought may be a good idea.
I understand the argument of shopping my locally owned hardware store or pharmacy instead of WalMart, but not Best Buy. That's kind of swapping the Borg for the Daleks in my opinion.

Borg for Daleks
Actually, I think I would rather have the Daleks than the Borg. At least the Daleks can't climb stairs.
Wal-Mart isn't just another big-box chain. Its problems go far beyond the problems shared by all of those.

One of the creepiest scenes in Dr. Who for me was when Ace was running from a Dalek. She desperately ran up a flight of stairs, and the Dalek paused - and then levitated up the stairs after her. The Dalek had adapted.

Re: Borg for Daleks
Your description of that scene was running through my head as I wrote the above, so of course you'd be the one to bring it up. ;-)
I'd still take Daleks over Borg. The Borg are much faster to adapt, for one.
