Sometimes in my line of work, I end up yelling at people. Not that yelling is technically in the job description. I’m not a foreman or middle-manager, where yelling is essentially your defining characteristic (that, and a deep-seated sorrow, although that’s something I do have, thank you very much.)
If I were in a job that requires me to be exploitative, like a congress-human (note the gender-neutralization – I’m very inclusive) or if I was the president, I think my yelling might be justified. The president has to spend all day of his or her day trying to wrangle in a slithering herd of psychopaths and liars, hoping to milk their venom into something semi-useful. If you’re a congress-human, you’re a snake who spends all day yelling about how everyone else is probably a snake.

I was cleaning out the spare room yesterday and I just had this one track on repeat for the whole 3-hour procedure. And I still wasn’t sick of it even after that. I know absolutely nothing about Ten Walls. There seems to be very little info on the net either so I have no idea to whom or what I’m listening to. But I like it anyway.
My favorite soul musicians….I may be a bit out of touch with today’s music, simply because I can’t get enough of these classic sounds. I may be 31, however these songs are songs that I stay in tuned with. There was definitely something special about that soulful music era. Great ready to listen to some groovy tunes, combined with some groovy visuals 🙂
This is what it’s all about folks….The Bee Gees! Yup! “Night Fever Night Fever, We Know How To Show It” Look at Barry Gibb….those teeth, the outfit and he has no beard! LOVE! And Robin…he’s mesmerizing. Rest in Peace Robin and Maurice ❤ I listen to this song too much.
and this one…You Should Be Dancing…wow! Look at John Travolta go! My son couldn’t believe this was John Travolta. He was the man back in the day. This video gives me my daily giggles just watching Travolta…
