A rambling kinda talk about life and all that comes with it, past, present & future, joined together with an eclectic selection of great music...

Dude,I sincerely appreciate the time that you spend selecting your music. It always fits, it always works and I never skip a single track, even on repeated listenings of episodes.Also, you are right, we should have had a beer when I handed over The Rock. I'll buy you one next time I see you.As for fading memories. I find that anything that happened more than 20 or so years ago tends to fade away from my mind until it is tweaked by some smell, sound, deja vu, or image. I don't think it is just you.... and you are who again? Wait where am I? What is this funny looking TV/Typewriter in front of me? ;)
Enjoyed the show 'Dude'....but I can't remember why. Maybe it was the music? Perhaps, but it was also the overall 'vibe' of the thing...you sound like you're at peace with more aspects of life than in the past, and that is pleasing on many levels. Your comments about John Lennon were still with me when I happened to notice a book by his first wife Cynthia...picked it up and have been impressed with the story so far. I thought of sending the book to you (if you haven't yet read it), but it is not recommended for people who get pissed off when confronted with some not so flattering aspects of his persona. You might like it, but I can think of others who would rather use it as bbq starter...Cheersrob
Always so uplifting getting comments! Thanks boys! Happy to know the music is appreciated Doug - when I first started DicksnJanes the intent was to share my favourite music with friends. It's morphed from there, but music remains a constant.Rob, one of the things I love about Lennon is that he was so flawed- and knew it. I am sure he regretted his poor treatment of Cynthia (I think I have the book, btw) and how he neglected poor Julian- which is why he spent so much time raising Sean. The Beatles mag I bought has a touching photo of Paul with Jane Asher, Paul holding Julian's hand, while John walks alone beside them. Very poignant shot. Rob- my other podcast is up, with letters from Yokohama: http://hasatha.blogspot.com/
Yep. Memories do fade... not necessarily a bad thing, however. I do remember more of the good times than the bad, I think. Except, of course the REALLY bad times.I like hearing you talk about your struggles with parenting... not in an obscene gloating way... rather, it is reassuring to know I'm not alone in thinking this way myself.
Thanks for the comment Roger. Funny, I thought of you in particular on the drive to my office this morning, wondering how you were doing and thinking I hadn't heard from you in quite a while. I really must be psychic - thinking that and then finding you'd left a comment.The parenting talk, especially the concerns I share, make me a bit uncomfortable, but I also know I can't be alone in this, so on I go. More coming next episode I think.... Thanks for still being a listener!
