Lost links & Re-ups

On any post, if the link is no longer good, leave a comment if you want the music re-uploaded. As long as I still have the file, or the record, cd, or cassette to re-rip, I will gladly accommodate in a timely manner all such requests.

28 February 2021

This is Eddie’s House, Junior


Just got back from getting my first Covid vaccination.



Not really sure what I'm feeling about it all. It should mean somethin' but as usual, nothin'. It all seems so...kinda strange. With everything we've all been going through since early last year, perhaps I'm not really aware of how numb I've become. But it's more than that. It's like it's some...odd deja vu. Like I already saw this moment happening but I have no inkling of what comes next. But I ramble on...it's probably just the drug...been listening to "Death Letter" too much...

February 28



Always thought it weird that Black History Month was given February (yeah, Abraham Lincoln & Frederick Douglass' birthdays), the shortest month of all. Systemic racism or just my pessimism? Last day of the month, thought I'd post up all my leftovers.

  2. Glad to learn you've gotten the first vaccination. I hope to join you asap, and that we can all get the 2nd soonish. Your observations ring true to me. It's hard to know what or how to feel. That said, thank you for the ebruary BH observances. Perhaps I'm just naive, it's happened before, but I also look forward to a day when history includes everyone. I already does, but it's up to our society to insure it's ALL taught. good and bad, honorable and dishonorable.

  3. History is always such fiction, written & re-written by the latest societal variation. If we could just learn the news (not fake news, but actual events) without all the spin. The best history lessons I've ever learned were garnered from just getting to know people from all walks of life, all ethnicities, & hearing them share their lives & pasts. Thank you for the uplifting thoughts, rev.
