I wish I could find two of those blue 3-CD cases in which Decca/Ovation originally released Hurford's Bach. I just received two of them in the mail; one is cracked on the blue part and each is missing a lot of its teeth.

Good to explore internet communication and the psychology of it in a more archaic way than usual nowadays. Makes me feel a bit blue, but that's fine. Just some (blue) thoughts, don't know if it leads to something fruitful.

Susan Greenfield is a recognized British scientist, but her works on impact of digital technology in modern world have been controversial and widely criticized - curiously - because of a striking lack of scientific evidence to her conclusions.

That's what I'm trying to do, volume by volume. I now have two of them, and I ordered a third today. It's cheaper than buying the currently available box set, and I dislike dealing with today's small boxes. Anyway, I sent the cracked ones back. Full refund. The seller should have packaged them better.

Over time, I will prevail.

Well, she puts things on the (blue? lol) table. Creates a debate.

It's a Happy Blues :

Woke up this morning, didn't feel that bad
Last night was definitely not
One of the worst I ever had
Ate a nice dinner, drank a few drinks
Didn't think about you baby no matter what you think
Went back to my hotel room, I went straight to bed
Didn't moan, didn't cry and
I did not wish I was dead, I'm alright, I'm alright
Yeah I'm alright baby, I'm alright without you

Woke up this morning, didn't have the blues
So I put on my tubesocks, laced up my running shoes
Went down to the reservoir to jog a mile or two
Didn't think about our love and I wasn't missing you
Went back to my hotelroom took a few phonecalls
Clean sheets on a made up bed & artwork on the wall
I'm allright, I'm allright
Yeah I'm alright baby, I'm alright without you

Woke up this afternoon and I sat up in the bed
There was a gnawing in my gut
And a poundin' in my head

So I went to the bathroom, to the medicine chest
There was sleepin'pills and razorblades & all the rest
But I was in control baby I was so relaxed
I found myself my dental floss,
My favourite kind, unwaxed
I'm alright, I'm alright
Yeah I'm alright baby, I'm alright without you

"Tangled Up In Blue"

Early one morning the sun was shining
I was laying in bed
Wond'ring if she'd changed it all
If her hair was still red
Her folks they said our lives together
Sure was gonna be rough
They never did like Mama's homemade dress
Papa's bankbook wasn't big enough
And I was standing on the side of the road
Rain falling on my shoes
Heading out for the East Coast
Lord knows I've paid some dues getting through
Tangled up in blue.

She was married when we first met
Soon to be divorced
I helped her out of a jam I guess
But I used a little too much force
We drove that car as far as we could
Abandoned it out West
Split it up on a dark sad night
Both agreeing it was best
She turned around to look at me
As I was walking away
I heard her say over my shoulder
"We'll meet again someday on the avenue"
Tangled up in blue.

I had a job in the great north woods
Working as a cook for a spell
But I never did like it all that much
And one day the ax just fell
So I drifted down to New Orleans
Where I happened to be employed
Working for a while on a fishing boat
Right outside of Delacroix
But all the while I was alone
The past was close behind
I seen a lot of women
But she never escaped my mind and I just grew
Tangled up in blue.

She was working in a topless place
And I stopped in for a beer
I just kept looking at her side of her face
In the spotlight so clear
And later on as the crowd thinned out
I was just about to do the same
She was standing there in back of my chair
Said to me "Don't I know your name?"
I muttered something underneath my breath
She studied the lines on my face
I must admit I felt a little uneasy
When she bent down to tie the laces of my shoe
Tangled up in blue.

She lit a burner on the stove and offered me a pipe
"I thought you'd never say hello" she said
"You look like the silent type"
Then she opened up a book of poems
And handed it to me
Written by an Italian poet
From the fifteenth century
And every one of them words rang true
And glowed like burning coal
Pouring off of every page
Like it was written in my soul from me to you
Tangled up in blue

I lived with them on Montague Street
In a basement down the stairs
There was music in the café at night
And revolution in the air
Then he started into dealing with slaves
And something inside of him died
She had to sell everything she owned
And froze up inside
And when finally the bottom fell out
I became withdrawn
The only thing I knew how to do
Was to keep on keeping on like a bird that flew
Tangled up in blue.

So now I'm going back again
I got to get her somehow
All the people we used to know
They're an illusion to me now
Some are mathematicians
Some are carpenter's wives
Don't know how it all got started
I don't what they're doing with their lives
But me I'm still on the road
Heading for another joint
We always did feel the same
We just saw it from a different point of view
Tangled up in Blue.

Bob Dylan.

Have you ever sailed across an ocean...on a sailboat, surrounded by sea with no land in sight, without even the possibility of sighting land for days to come? To stand at the helm of your destiny. I want that, one more time. I want to be in the Piazza del Campo in Siena. To feel the surge as 10 racehorses go thundering by. I want another meal in Paris, at L'Ambroisie, at the Place des Vosges. I want another bottle of wine. And then another. I want the warmth of a woman and a cool set of sheets. One more night of jazz at the Vanguard. I want to stand on the summits and smoke Cubans and feel the sun on my face for as long as I can. Walk on the Wall again. Climb the Tower. Ride the River. Stare at the Frescos. I want to sit in the garden and read one more good book. Most of all I want to sleep. I want to sleep like I slept when I was a boy. Give me that, just one time.
