I was on Facebook the other day and I saw a post about something called CatCom. This event is something like Comic-Con but for cat lovers. I saw, on this Facebook page, many people dressed as cats. My first thought? “You are adults, right?”
I think that every time I see picture of Comic-Com I think the same thing. How old are we?
It all started with Rock and Roll. Rock and Roll is a very simplistic form of music. It’s music for children and for the first 10 or so years of Rock and Roll, it was for children, or teenagers. But then those teenagers turned into adults and they were totally unaware that the silly music they listened to and seeped into their brain and kept them in a state of arrested development. And it gets worse and worse, as each generation gets older. Now adults think it is OK to pay a LOT or money to walk around a large hall, dressed up in a costume of a superhero or comic book character, and pay even more money to get an autograph and a celebrity.
Someone wrote on Facebook, “You have to grow old but you don’t have to grow up.”
That is the problem!
When I think of Comic-Con, I think of Superman. When I think of Superman, I think of George Reeves. I wonder if he would have enjoyed Comic-Con!
Anyway, I went to see the eclipse with my wife last weekend. Had a great time. We went to Columbia, Missouri. The great part was, we couldn’t find any viewing glasses but the area we found for viewing had them for $1 a pair. Totality was something that was overwhelming, seriously overwhelming. It was way to short.
The problem started once we left. We didn’t know if we should spend the night or drive home after it was over. We made the HUGE mistake with the choice of driving home. Traffic was awful. It took us 14 hours to make an 8-hour car ride. We got home a 4:40am. It sucked! Let me say that again, it sucked. But I would do it again and I will in seven years.
Got a nice letter from a listener of my podcast the other day. That is two shows in a row! Yes!
This has been a busy week, so I didn’t have Music Monday or any of the rest. They will be back next week. Work as been a pain in the butt. I didn’t even get a chance to work on a new song on guitar! I was hoping between this blog and my video stuff, I would be able to retire and do Internet stuff all day but it is looking like this isn’t going to happen anytime soon.
So, I’ve got a pub crawl tomorrow, I’ll let you know about that next week. Actually it is called a Paw Crawl because it is to raise money for an animal shelter. Always doing my part, you know.
I watched the film Doctor Strange the other day. I must say I didn’t care for it all that much. Not only am I not a fan of these Superhero films, but even less a fan of the origin stories. Boring! I really believe they are popular because most adults are still children.
