Time Is A Lot Of Things; Idiot Is Just One Of Them

"Time is an Idiot..." by Grover Schrayer

Time Is An Idiot....
"I remember reading some Stephen J. Gould writings that said that the one thing a thorough understanding of evolution makes you realize is that it isn't a progressive thing moving forward towards a "goal" , it's a lot more complicated than that. I would say that that describes life itself, to be totally honest about it." 
"Yesterday was my 50th birthday, and not a good one. Spent the early morning hours in the emergency room with my dad, watching him having panic attacks from the effects of Alzheimer's."

Song of the Day: "Detroit"

Listening through a couple tracks from Gaz Coombes (dude from Supergrass, no, not them, not them*, them**) I totally dig this one more than the other. The album, Matador, is on the Mercury Prize Shortlist... not that you asked.

* Goddamn what a great fucking song.
** File under "songs about drugs used in commercials without any sense of irony..

Song: "Detroit"

Flashback Song: "Never Let Me Down"

Who can say what prompted me to play David Bowie's Never Let Me Down (1987) this morning. It accompanied Midnight Oil and Adrian Belew in some late-80s/early 90s reminiscing.

I'm pretty sure I didn't realize how awesome this would be covered by a country artist. Ty Herndon, call me. Or Chris Cagle (I could do worse).
