During my Biology class today, I was overcome with a strong desire to write. Consequently, this happened lol. a-hard-days-night-george-10

 

If I Could Write Like Dylan

 

If I could write like Dylan,

Would people finally hear

What I've always tried to say

Through years of tempered tears?

 

If I could think like Dylan--

Think the way I write--

Would people scoff and sneer

Or find my thoughts are right?

 

If I could speak like Dylan,

What is it I'd say?

Would people stop to listen

Or turn their ears away?

 

But if I could write like Courtney--

Speak and think and write--

People may soon find

That she's really quite alright.

Anyone know how to get a new cat back in the house after its broke ranks and disappeared? We've had him for 36 hours and he doesnt respond to his name.

When you say disappeared, do you know where he is?

If you do then the only thing I can say is that you somehow try and grab him, without scaring him. I don´t know how much point there is in trying to persuade him in because if he doesn´t trust you then he won´t but you could give it a go. Otherwise I suppose you´ll just have to wait, if it gets cold then he might want to come inside.

Thanks everyone for their advice. We put out some fish but since he ate before he ran out (clever cat) wont be hungry for a while.

He did come back but quickly scarpered again (we live in the middle of nowhere so he's hard to find). I think he will be out all night which is not good as its cold but its a cat so will be able to keep warm. We have a shed so the plan is stick food in there and then lock the door when he goes for the food. I'll go out in the morning and sit for a bit, he might come up and say hello.

 

Again thanks for the advice.

For those in the UK and havent heard it yet i'd recommend listening to The Bloggers Guide To The Beatles. Its a reverential look at the beatles legacy but with funny jokes (one involving Pepper and Revolver and which many fans would agree with) and lame impressions. Its available to listen to until Thursday.

Apologies for the double post, but I have to know…what happened to the cat?

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8Oh, sorry. Forgot all about it with life going on and Beatles on tv (Love Me Do was on last night).

The cat is back and being a pain. Was found walking around the bottom of the garden on Saturday night. He was put out today for the first time properly and came back easily enough so hopefully a pattern will emerge for the winter (he was gotten for mice catching as i live in the middle of nowhere).

 

Thanks for asking Zig – hope no one was having a sleepness night over it.

The Rolling Stones are going back on the stage for gigs in London and New York. I thought their last tour was the final final never going to tour ever again ever ever ever tour or did i just give up caring?

 

And if you do nothing about something really wrong and illegal along with every one else, just point fingers, jump up and down, and scream "It was them, them over there. They are to blame. How disgraceful that they did nothing! Theyre bad bad people. Get them. Boooooo!!" and hope no one thinks to look at you.

And I'm going to ask what the last part of that post was about.

I doubt they said, "Hey, let's play in NJ." The Pru Center probably just happened to be the only venue in the NYC Metro area that was available. The capacity is not as much as MSG, but still seats about 19,000 or so for concerts.

I'm pretty sure they could have gotten MSG if they wanted to.
Also – going to see Bruce Springsteen TONIGHT!!!!!

Only if they wanted to share the floor with the New York Knicks on those nights. I can hear the call now…

"Carmello Anthony dribbles up court, past Jagger, around Richards, over to Stoudamire for the jam!" 

Have fun with The Boss tonight.

I forgot the Knicks also use MSG – I think just the Rangers use it.
Thanks!

Hm, a friend of mine saw Springsteen at the Skydome back in August for the first time and was a bit underwhelmed. Said there was too much recent material, of which he isn't fond. (Me, I get off the Springsteen bus after "Born In The USA" and don't think he ever topped his '70s albums.)

Hope you have a good time all the same!

Thanks!! His latest one is really good, and I know a few songs off the Rising, but his best string was definitely in the 70's (Although, if I had a gun to my head, I'd say the first disc of the River was his best single album.) Really pumped now
