I am listening to an average of 2.5 hours of podcasts per day so far in 2021. I didn’t plan it this way, but that’s how it’s turning out as I find more ways I can listen, and more podcasts and episodes to which I want to listen. The numbers look a bit out of control, though the important part is it doesn’t feel out of control. Still, I wonder if there is a problem with me listening to so much educational content per day, though I don’t mean a problem in the sense many might be thinking in terms of excessiveness with that time volume. But if not that, then what?
WOW! JUST WOW! I can’t remember being more wowwed and mesmerized by anything on YouTube or any other video platforms! 12.5 minutes super well spent! BRAVO!
I have a simple little 8 question survey I’d like you to fill out if you have a few minutes, regarding you and your a favourite fictional character. I’ll correlate the answers and report back in a few weeks.
Basically, I want to know your gender and age, the same for your character, which genre or type of franchise he/she/it is in, and if you perceive the character is good, evil, both or neither. It’s all explained in the survey below, or via this link if the embedded code below doesn’t appear right on whatever you are viewing this post.
Please do share this post with any others you think might want to do it to contribute to the outcome, and watch for an update on my site on Aug 10 or 11th. Thank you!
Happy 70th Birthday, Bob Dylan!
Ah, you were so much older then, you’re younger than that now… and may you stay forever young no matter how much the times, they are a’changin’, you rolling stone you!
Man, can you believe the Bob is 70???
I sure can’t… mostly because my main association with him is through his music, and that’s mostly timeless, never aging, so the icon seems that way to me.
For Bob’s 70th, Rolling Stone magazine did a huge number of features this month on him:
- The 10 Greatest Dylan Songs
- 20 Overlooked Classics
- 10 Best Bootlegs
- Quiz: Do You Know Your Dylan?
- Photos: The Evolution of Dylan
- Dylan’s First Rolling Stone Interview
Me, I did a meme tribute on Facebook to share one of my favourite Top 10 Bob Dylan songs each day leading to his birthday today. Here is my list, which was generally presented in no particular order except for the last two being my favourite two Dylan songs. It gets too hard to separate the order of the others for me.
In late January, I proposed a Facebook meme to share a love song a day for February that contains Valentine’s Day. Here are the first seven songs of my list and some short commentary with each.
