Driving 007 Style

Mom got me the Skyfall soundtrack for Christmas—a very good gift. My wife and I were driving while listening to it and I went to pass someone, at which point my wife got into character: "Take the pass! Take the bloody pass!"

I might need to keep that CD in the car full time.

Victor Wooten

If you’re sitting around someday looking for something to do, go to YouTube and look for videos featuring Victor Wooten. An amazing bassist; it’s fun just to watch him.

Here’s one to whet your appetite.

Prince, Playing “While My Guitar Gently Weeps”

As so often happens, my blog has gone dormant again. It’s been… actually, I’m not going to look at the date of my last post to find out how long it’s been. It’ll just make me feel guilty. (However, the Bible Blog, Book Blog, and even new Quotes Blog, have all had activity.) Anyway, I figure the best way to remedy that is that any time I’m tempted to post something to Google+ I’ll post it here, instead, and then share the link to G+. Besides, who uses G+ anyway?

What, you are asking, does any of that have to do with Prince playing While My Guitar Gently Weeps? Nothing. Here’s Prince.

The Rap Battle

  • The Rap Battle
  • by David Hunter
  • A text message conversation with Andrea
  • Me
  • Guy across from me was listening to Eminem, and I can tell because he was listening really loud. Another woman had to ask him to turn it down
  • Me
  • And he's exactly the type of guy you'd expect; white, and looks like he's fresh out of college.
  • Andrea
  • Go slap him and see what happens
  • Andrea
  • See if he'll challenge you to a rap battle
  • Me
  • I don't want to embarrass him. I'd school his ass so bad...
  • Andrea
  • My name is David and I'm here to say imma school yo ass in a serious way ...that one's for free
  • Me
  • Any time I hear a rap that starts with "my name is XXX and I'm here to say..." I laugh uncontrollably.
  • Andrea
  • Did it happen just now?
  • Me
  • Yes. Luckily I was in the coffee room, not at my desk, so nobody saw.
