Too young

Pylon guitarist Randy Bewley passed away last week. Pylon is one of the pioneers of the Athens, GA music movement during the late '70's and early '80's, the movement that shaped post-punk, new wave and pop music in the United States. This was the music that shaped my musical tastes from the early '80's on.

Dog's 10 Commandments

1. My life is likely to last 10-15 years. Any separation from you is likely to be painful.

2. Give me time to understand what you want of me.

3. Place your trust in me. It is crucial for my well-being.

4. Don't be angry with me for long and don't lock me up as punishment. You have your work, your friends, your entertainment, but I have only you.

5. Talk to me. Even if I don't understand your words, I do understand your voice when speaking to me.

6. Be aware that however you treat me, I will never forget it.

7. Before you hit me, before you strike me, remember that I could hurt you, and yet, I choose not to bite you.

8. Before you scold me for being lazy or uncooperative, ask yourself if something might be bothering me. Perhaps I'm not getting the right food, I have been in the sun too long, or my heart might be getting old or weak.

9. Please take care of me when I grow old. You too, will grow old.

10. On the ultimate difficult journey, go with me please. Never say you can't bear to watch. Don't make me face this alone. Everything is easier for me if you are there, because I love you so.

I did say I'd blog more...

But didn't guarantee the quality of the content.

I've been sick since Sunday, leading to the dearth of posts. I'm trying to find the groove again and hope to be back soon.

"I pledge"...

I pledge to be an individual. To not follow the Hollywood douchebags who try think celebrity = wisdom. To fight socialism.

This video earns the 'Nope' seal from me today...
