Music man

np: Nebraska - The Cash Brothers

I made the startling rev
elation the other day that I will never have enough music. It was one of those "A-ha!" moments that scared me so much, I forgot to breathe for half a second. It shouldn't have come as a shock to me and, to those who've known me or perused my amassed collection, it's not exactly news to them. But this is/was new. This frightened me some. See, people are apt to ask where I find songs and how and on and on. I happily answer that it's an addiction. Addictions are not good things, however. There's a lot of money thrown in the direction of music as my tastes are as wide as they are varied. I share as much as I can, but my desire grows and grows and grows some more. I'll even let on that it's getting worse.

There are a couple constants when it comes to women who are in search of their soulmate. They almost always want that blessed sense of humor. It's just got to be there. It's got to be as readily apparent as the fact he has a second ear. Another constant is that they have a voracious appetite for the good music. It's something good to wish for, I think, but it's got to be a little scary for those who run into the true music collectors. We're almost worse than the comic book fan-boys. Until I find my One, I do believe I'm married to my music. It's a rocky relationship, but at least it's taught me to be a good -- no, GREAT -- listener.

np: Peaceful Valley - Ryan Adams & The Cardinals

great listener of music.

what would happen if you married someone with just as strong an addiction but to something else - like comic books? would there be room enough for both collections in the home?

We would need to buy a four bedroom house ... one room for music and one room for (ugh) comic books.

Hi, i was looking over your blog and didn't
quite find what I was looking for. I'm looking for
different ways to earn money... I did find this though...
a place where you can make some nice extra cash secret shopping.
I made over $900 last month having fun!
make extra money

Cindy said...

Wow, Dainon! Check out all that money you can make just by pretending you're shopping!

Okay, look, I'm just going to make this easy for you. Let's get married. How about January 8th, Elvis' birthday? That way you can always remember it and I can have enough time to make a kickin' wedding invitation and get my aunt Maria, the Italian seamstress, to sew me a dress.

Dainon said...

Can she make me a tux jumpsuit? If so, then it's a deal. Even if you didn't ask. And we need to work out a way that I can marry us, being both the Elvis impersonator/preacher and groom. This is my greatest dream. I have faith in you, Priscilla, I mean Cindy.

oooh cindy, dan's gonna be so mad..

Cindy said...

Hmmm...the task to get the jumpsuit is easy, already in the works. I don't know how we're going to get you to marry us, that's a tough one. Hurry and try to get someone to ordain you as a bishop.

Sarah - oh yeah, that's right, I forgot about my boyfriend Dan. I'd better do some quick repairing.

pretty soon you're going to need to upgrade to a three bedroom...

I worry the same thing about my books. I've stopped paying to collect them now that I'm an editor, though. I tend to get a lot of free ARCs (advance reader copies), and there's always the library. Moving cross-country with 20 boxes of books made me reevaluate this book-collecting thing.

Good thing for you music doesn't take up *quite* so much room...
