The Getaway

When you're on your third start/stop post march of the day, 'tis better to cut your losses, stroll off into the sunset and gain anywhere but here. Thus, some getaway music I dig.

Lovely music and beautiful pictures.
Laura loves it!
We could sit under the tree, watch the sunset and talk about how NOT fat I am. Tee Hee....
But then that big bumble bee shows up with a curiously orange bum! Damn pesticides!
You suprise me. I was expecting the Death Metal! :)

Or you could always take the Joe Biden approach when you can't think of anything to write: Plagiarize.

Ask not what you can do for your country. Ask what your country did to you. (Name that group.)

Four score and seven years ago...

Demeur said...

Seeing as how your mind is usually off track maybe it needed a vacation.

Randal Graves said...

sunshine, I'm not all about death and destruction. Just keep that between us.

tom, I don't have to wear hairplugs, do I? Or eat my foot?

demeur, probably. The conductor ensemble isn't very flattering.

sunshine said...

Thanks for following my new blog! It was a nice suprise to see your face there! (and your smart ass comment as well...)

FranIAm said...

Your use of Sibelius makes it hard for me to come here and just crap some f-bombs all over your blog.

La Belette Rouge said...

There are always shoes to write about. And, if you need shoes I am happy to take you shoe shopping in exchange for your strong arming services.;-)

Beach Bum said...

After the day I had some nice string music is just what I needed. Seeing a patience go code blue in the hospital elevator and the two nurses jump into action was a little more than i wanted to see today.

Dr. Zaius said...

Nice musical choice, Randal. A welcome change from your "Death Metal" submissions.

S.W. anderson said...

Randal, that's a delightful diversion. The music and artwork go beautifully together. You never cease to surprise. All that's lacking is a cool glass of Liebfraumilch, some fresh bread and brie.

Having said that, I can only absorb concentrated classiness for so long. The tree put me in mind of "Johnny B. Goode," so I'm off to add it to my small mp3 collection.

I love classical music.

I'm not knowledgeable about it the way I am about R&B, rock and jazz but, I like it none-the-less.

Wasn't it Duke Ellington who said (and I'm paraphrasing here), "there is two kinds of music: good music and bad music."

Works for me.

Tengrain said...

Graves, you swine!

Sobriety does not suit you, now get off that wagon, man!



okjimm said...

I got nuttin'

... but I always get a kick outa Tengrain saying

Graves,you swine!

Randal Graves said...

sunshine, well, I like movies and I like making stupid comments on other peoples' blogs. ;-)

fran, I can imagine that it does so expect more satanic death metal in the future, just for you.

LBR, but I already bought new sneakers earlier this year. Who needs more than two pairs of shoes? ;-)

BB, I don't think I could hack doing your job. A wee bit more stressful than book world. Next payday, treat yourself to some tunes. Or booze. Or both.

dr. zaius, well, since you and Fran asked so nicely, guess what'll be up tomorrow! (Don't worry, I'll probably forget)

SWA, I love me some classical, but you'll never see me have nothing but praise for The Godfather of the Riff. No brie for Berry, though, maybe a burger n' beer.

christopher, that's how I look it at. Sure, each of us have tastes that only go so far into particular genres, but you can find good stuff in nearly everything.

tengrain, you bastard, are you insinuating that I don't drink at work? That hurts, man.

okjimm, maybe I should change the name of the blog to Graves, vous porc!

Lisa said...

Love the long hair music. It's great for thinking or not.
