TVD's Daily Wax | Wings "Greatest"

I think you just get to a point where you realize you've lead 10 or 15 individual lives. Birthdays tend to underscore that--little anniversaries of one full trip around the sun, or one look around the room of folks who've come to raise a glass with you--often finds you in differing universes over the years. And it's seems seamless until the cards in the mail you've taken for granted all these years just stop arriving, their absence is a new letter in the mailbox. Like the card from my folks with the check and a note, "Go buy yourself some clothes, but no more black!"

I guess it was the Macca/Mills mess that had me thinking about Sir Paul not too long ago. I mean, how many lives has this guy had? I bet we can count because if there's a more examined life out there, I'm not aware of it. So, to look back at all of my OWN incarnations, I'm a bit awed to think that Paul in one of HIS many guises rode shotgun with me all of these years. I truly can't recall a time when The Beatles or Paul weren't in regular rotation on my personal playlist. So Paul, thanks for remaining a constant all of these years. We've seen some shit, huh?

Junior's Farm. Like it! Feel the same way about Sir Paul as you do Vinyl District (except maybe the last couple of years). One of the first records I ever bought was Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey.

Happy belated birthday! Thanks for the presents (music)!

Uncle E said...

The guy gets a bad rap. Who needs Lennon and Harrison's critical acclaim, Paul could write a helluva great pop tune!
Not to discount the other two, I love 'em just as much...
...and Happy B-day, belated!

Hey, mmrules... try dipping the wings in the "be nice" sauce. It makes things more pallatable!

Ooo...can't say I'm a Wings fan, but I do adore the outfit on this album cover. Who knew I had an affinity for curtain-like sleeves!?

(Happy belated b-day!)

So much for e-hibernating...!

In fairness, I said I was taking a break from writing my blog, but not on commenting on others! I have so much more time now! Well, sort of...

So, all that free time means another guest DJ stint?
