Read that Jessie Winchester died on Friday. Have "Brand New Tennessee Waltz" running on the internal jukebox.

I woke up this morning with "Waltzes With Bears" playing in my head.

Got Creepshow's The Devils Son in my head. This is good news because we're road tripping to see the Reverend Horton Heat and Creepshow in June.

And here's the story: I heard one of these awesome creatures last night, I was in bed and my bedroom faces the river, so this guy must have been in the trees right behind me. Well, not THIS owl, I got this vid from youtube. Research this morning told me it's the sound of a Great Horned Owl, probably the most prevalent in this area.

What I did was spare you the actual earworm it created: Wildfire by Michael Martin Murphy in 1975. Well, I won't really spare you: here's the vid if you want. I was always fascinated by one of the native American owl legend (owls have featured in mythology in many cultures in many ways) they incorporated. Couldn't get this song out of my head all day, despite being busy!

I'm hoping to spot the owl some evening, they're territorial so he shouldn't go too far, but they're hard to spot in so many trees.

Terrible nitpick: that version only has the left channel of the song. Here's the full stereo version:

I can remember riding my Huffy dirt bike with a tape recorder hanging off the handle bars playing "The Night Chicago Died".

They were not the good old days, and I would not go back.

Yeah, but think of the money you could make investing in Microsoft, Netscape, AOL, Genentech, Apple, etc.
