We Are the World – Minus One

Posted 3/18/2014 12:14:00 PM

Everyone’s texting, tweeting and blogging and instagramming and facebooking….that’s a lot of communicating without having to actually talk to each other!  And we know more about our friends and family members than we used to…or maybe than we want to?  What they’re having for breakfast, where they’re having breakfast, what their kids are having for breakfast, their religious and political views! It’s awesome! It’s like the biggest, smallest town ever! I love that we can finally see how we’re all so intricately linked together. Unless of course you get unfriended (oh  no! not unfriended!!!). Then again, that does simplify things doesn’t it?!

ps…..Christine McVie said she might like to rejoin the band!

Ya know, I don't go out "out" often so when I do it's kind of a big deal to me. In late September I bought a ticket on line for what looked like a great show: Los Straightjackets who I've seen before, Southern Culture on the Skids who I think I've seen before back when I used to work for WBOS and The Fleshtones who I hadn't yet seen but was totally psyched to see! They were actually the main reason I was going. And, joy of joys, they were on first so if I wimped out after being up past 9, I could go home early! The other great thing was the show was on a Friday night!
