Hey, me here, you know that bloke that fades in and out like a late-night radio broadcast. Anyway, I need to make a confession. Yes, I,m a sinner, oops, no, I ended up joining facebook after years of pressure from my family. See, they wanted me to see photos of their meals and their trips to the Snowy. Personally, I cared little, so I actually linked a few Pigs Arms articles to FB and got 2 likes. My nephew thinks Foodge and Father O’Way are hysterical and a total stranger liked it with a thumbs up. My nephew who has a PhD in neuroscience has to explain Foodge and FOW to his parents. This tells me a lot about Darwinism.
Now, I fucking hate this new text editor from WordPress. WordPress is the engine that runs the Pigs Arms website. The new editor wants you to be a coding guru, which funnily enough, I used t write computer programs. Now, I hate it. If you are familiar with drag and drop, well, that’s where I’m at. The little side pictures and wrapped text are a thing of the past. I’m sure it’s achievable but I can’t be bothered achieving it. You know the old saying, lots of effort for very little outcome.
On to Neil Young. Boy, do I have some mixed feelings. Visit this web page for lots of great articles about 60’s, 70’s music, and beyond. Neil Sambrook has a great skill at filling in some gaps in, well my, music knowledge. Neil is a fantastic music journalist.
Now, my favourite Neil Young album is “After the Gold Rush”. Mainly because of circumstances. I originally was exposed to “Harvest” and CSNY thanks to my big brother. I loved Harvest however over time I loved Gold Rush better. In Neils’s article here, he rates “On the Beach” as better”, If you choose, feel free to let me know. I respect all of your opinions.
Listen to them if you want. It’s up to you. These are my favourite Neil Young albums. The rest, well, I can give or take.’
Signing off as Mark, Sandy, Hoo, Father O’Way, Gorden O’Donnell, Merv. Mervette and so on. Enjoy. 🙂
