Thoughts While Fasting
Often times I get asked, "Dave, I plan on going twenty-four hour fast. There will be no food, no drink, and no physical pleasure. What albums should I listen to?" The answer is very simple: Bob Dylan's Blond on Blond. It has good beats, silly songs ("Rainy Day Women #12 & 35"), songs that sound deep but really aren't ("I Want You") , songs that are actually pretty and is generally cool. Highly recommended. Find some Lester Bangs review of it. He describes it perfectly. At first, non-hungry listen, I didn't like it that much. Now that I haven't eaten in over twelve hours, though, it sounds great! Especially "Stuck Inside of Mobile With the Memphis Blues Again." Such a cool song. It's different then Bob Dylan. That's the other Bob Dylan album I just bought (gotta be prepared for college, right?)But it's very good in it's own right. Check it out.
Also, crazy old electric blues is good for fasting. I'm thinking of Abert King or Bo Diddly
God, I can't believe I'm leaving this Friday. How crazy is that? So crazy.
Well, I'm going out with Ashlegih again tonight. I'm excited about it. Nice to meet a stable non-crazy girl, isn't it? (Answer: Yes) However things develop, I look forward to them.
Two notes about the Presdential Race: Contraty to popular beliefs (and a recent post) I do not support Hilary. I support Joe Biden. He is smart and likeable. If Paul Hackett can win next year (which should be the Democrats TOP priority), he'll be an awesome VP. Him or Bill Richardson.
And onto the second Presidential note. Say hello to the next president of the United States. The greatest man who ever lived. Christopher Walken.
