Life at an Intersection

Chicago Phoenix, indemnity bonds, journaling, really really really want a zigazig ah, travel, books, travel books, relationships, values. It is hard to pinpoint precisely, but I'd say about 82% of what you read here is true. The rest is fictional nonfiction.

Transitions

Photobucket

Music has been a great help and distraction to me in the last week. I've had to eschew much of my personal music collection, though, since I seem to be excessively drawn to melancholy and maudlin. I also had to make the command decision to change the radio station at work. We usually listen to The Light, which is a veritable treasure trove of Phil Collins and Peter Cetera's greatest, most heartbreaking hits. I couldn't stomach that, so we've been rocking (quietly) to XRT this week. At home, Pandora has been great. Last night R.E.M.'s Losing My Religion came on, and I really listened to the words, intently, for the first time. Surprise! They have nothing to do with faith or religion, and everything to do with the emotions of a break-up.

Life is bigger, bigger than you
And you are not me

So, Congress and the President are postponing the digital transition of TV. This pisses me off. People with basic, over the air reception have had like a year and a half to get their $40 government coupon, buy their box, and hook it up to their antenna. Every 5th commercial on TV is, "Are you ready for the digital transition, coming February 17?" The bottom line for me is this: anyone who is unprepared for February 17 is also going to be unprepared for June 12. The only thing that will cause these people to prepare is actually losing their TV reception. "Hey, my TV doesn't get any channels any more. How can I fix that?"

Currently Watching:
Wall-E

I had very similar thoughts on the digital transition thing.

Let me know your thoughts on Wall-E.

Words That I'm Living By - 5/2/2010

Time, as I've known it
Doesn't take much time to pass by me
Minutes into days, turn into months
Turn into years, they hurry by me
But still I love to see the sun go down
And the world go around

Dreams full of promises
Hopes for the future, I've had many
Dreams I can't remember now
Hopes that I've forgotten,
faded memories
But still I love to see the sun go down
And the world go around

And I love to see the morning
as it steals across the sky
I love to remember and
I love to wonder why
And I hope that I'm around
so I can be there when I die
When I'm gone

I hope that you will think of me
In moments when you're happy and you're smiling
That the thought will comfort you
On cold and cloudy days
if you are crying
And that you'll love to see
the sun go down
And the world go around
And around and around
