Without A Net
I do not download music. Do not often watch videos on my computer either although a few recent ones I have watched, Arcade Fire and Neil Young, Anti-Nowhere League and Lou Reed and Metallica make me wonder if wasting a little more time doing so might entertain me a little more than I am already entertained.
I listen to my music in stereo.
I listen to WDVX-FM.
I do not own a portable mp3 player. I do not listen to music I could store in my phone. I suppose I am an old fashioned motherfucker.
Out of date.
Out to lunch.
Out of touch.
Out of line.
Out of luck.
Out of it.
I buy new and used cds, new and used records, used cassettes and the occasional old 8-track. I could use a good quality 8-track player. I could also use a good quality cd player. I see used cd players for sale all the time but I am not sure which the best one to buy is. I play my cds, one at a time, on my dvd player.
I have two new additions to my music library. One is the Grateful Dead's "Without A Net" two cassette set. I never quite got the Dead though I really like all the country shit Jerry Garcia has contributed to that I have added to my collection over the years. The two cassettes are ok in a boring hippy sort of way. Almost fell asleep as I was listening to them. Just like any Zappa lp they are worth listening to for the guitar freak outs I guess.
The other addition is an old Emmy Lou Harris record. I am not going to listen to that yet. I will save it for the weekend. Save it for the weekend when, like last weekend, I just might let my freak flag fly.
