The Young and the Restless on December 26, features Nick Newman the father trying to put together a Christmas his sons Connor and Christian.  As Nick gets frustrated with not being able to put together the toy “without an engineering degree,” his sister, Victoria, who may know him better than anyone in the Newman family asks, “Did you read the directions?” That would be everyone’s house on Christmas!

Peter Gabriel wrote a song in 1978 called D.I.Y. where he says in a tone that is more enthusiastic than angry in the England’s English slang far than (American) English.

There is a beauty to doing things yourself, building things with your children.  If there is one thing that Nick has learned from his dad Victor is being close to your sons and guiding their character takes precedence over anything in life.

 

 

The best songs hit me in the gut, viscerally.

I’ll usually like a song or not based on

1) liking the initial bodily pull from the harmonic rhythm;

2) liking the melodic sounds

3) liking the harmonic choices

4) liking the sonority.

Speed is something that rules music, Burt I have never changed a song in my of purchases based on tempo. All music I measure is purchased. I thank YouTube and WordPress firewall allowing recording embeds, borrowed never stolen. I’m a 40 year musician – I get it. Also a lawyer, thus being disbarred for stealing and REO Speedwagon hit? No thanks! Live ya Kevin Cronin, so know I bought everything I listened to before checking out GREAT performances from all the fantastically generous artists on YouTube💯💯💯.

I *have* thousands of purchases based obj whether I like the way that tempo is being used. I own every Pat Metheny Group, Genesis and Dave Matthews Band song. In the end, Carter Beaford of the Dave Matthews Band has been there most underrated musician alive since 1992!
