Ok, team… dig this. The following is my 1,oooth post here at I am Correct. I started in 2003, while you were still in your mama’s belly and she was spinning 8 tracks on the console. I want to thank Roy for teaching me about blogs, and helping me set this up. More importantly, I would like to thank me. Without me, I never would have been able to get this far. There were times when I wanted to quit, but I was always there to get me back on track. I would like to get a little solemn here, and dedicate this post to me.
For historical reference, I wanted to link to my first post here. However, it was on a different provider/server. Plus, it wasn’t very good.
but really, thank you. Even if there is just one of you reading, it means the world to me.
1. Ok, obligatory football question – the season begins – where do we stand this season?
8 – 8. This is a rebuilding year for us. Plus, I am not sure how good anyone can be after the bullshit that went on in the offseason. To me, this season is a write off, and I can just watch and enjoy.
2. Rocking to the radio today and thoughts drifted to favorite tunes. What is your first “favorite” rock song? When and why?
born to run – Springsteen. It’s just a masterpiece. It has everything… great storytelling, amazing musical tension, great pacing, there is just nothing like it. It is best loud. I know that is a total rock cliche, but with this song it is the case.
3. Rocking continues – what is the song on the current radio scene that moves you? Why?
I don’t listen to the radio. However, I know KBCO is playing the shit out of Ray LaMontagne and I could not be happier. When I do listen to rock radio, it is generally KBCO. God bless Brett Saunders, the greatest DJ ever.
4. Do you have a favorite rock lyric? What does it mean to you?
in a pinch, I am going with this gem from the Stones. This gem comes from ‘honky tonk women’. Are you ready for it? It goes thusly: She blew my nose and then she blew my mind. I mean, it is simultaneously the best and worst line ever written.
5. When this song comes on the radio, it makes you change the station – why?
for a rocker, by jackson browne. I once stopped listening to an entire station forever for playing that song.
