The Eagles - Desperado

You’re losin’ all your highs and lows Ain’t it funny how the feeling goes away?

And freedom, ohh freedom.
Well that’s just some people talking
Your prison is walking through this world all alone

"Ain’t No Fun (Waiting Around to Be a Millionaire)" by AC/DC

7:29 for 7/29

I got holes in my shoes
I got holes in my teeth
I got holes in my socks 
I can’t get no sleep
I’m trying to make a million
And I got patches on the patches
On my old blue jeans
Well they used to be blue
When they used to be new
When they used to be clean

Ain’t that the truth.

"Fade to Black" by Metallica

6:59 for 7/29

Things not what they used to be
Missing one inside of me
Deathly lost, this can’t be real
Cannot stand this hell I feel

Emptiness is filling me
To the point of agony
Growing darkness taking dawn
I was me, but now he’s gone

Sounds like a great idea. 
Just throw in some hula dancers.

"Isis" by Bob Dylan

6:58 for 7/28

Isis oh Isis you’re a mystical child
What drives me to you is what drives me insane
I still can remember the way that you smiled
On the fifth day of May in the drizzling rain

The whole song just reminds me of some RPG - heading out, exploring, finding towns, meeting people, looking for jewels. A couple years before, E. Gary Gygax released the first Dungeons and Dragons game. Coincidence?

"Bad Boy Boogie (live)" by AC/DC

7:28 for 7/28

On the day I was born
The rain fell down
There was trouble brewing in my home town
It was the seventh day
I was the seventh son
And it scared the hell out of everyone

Say what you will about the only knowing limited amounts of chords or putting out the same albums over and over again, they always knew how to entertain a crowd.

"Where Eagles Dare" by Iron Maiden

Maiden Monday

They dared to go where no one would try
they chose to fly where eagles dare

The day after one’s birthday can often be a bit of a let down (especially if it’s also on a Monday), so I figured I’d post Josh’s favorite Iron Maiden song to extend the happiness a bit longer. 

Up the Irons, brother!

I have class this week

I signed up to go for a week of training on AP Literature and Composition which isn’t a class I teach. I just had such a great time last year at AP Language and Composition, that I figured I’d sign up for a different one this year (especially since my district is paying (they tend to really shell out the dough for the smart kids)). 

However, this means I had to set my alarm. Bummer. But ok. 

It also means I had to read Their Eyes Are Watching God (which I didn’t realize until about an hour ago). I listened to the audio book about 15 years ago and may have seen a movie once upon a time, but, um, SparkNotes, here I come for my “refresher”. 

I have now become my worst student.
