Balls

Folks, tonight I'm paying homage to Pink Floyd's "Astronomy Domine" (http://popup.lala.com/popup/576742231816075621). If you can't grok the beauty then I think you're not human. This was probably my favorite Pink Floyd song from 1981-82. I just loved the reckless abandon of the tune. The longer version on Umma Gumma was on a constant loop on my "record player" during my high school years. I sold the LP at my last garage sale and some lucky stiff walked away with a bit of my past for a few dollars. There is a lot of music being turned out these days. My kids listen to it on the radio every day. I'm trying to stay quiet when they prefer to listen to that stuff they churn out. I just wish that they would open their ears. I wish they could give up on what they are listening to and take a few minutes to let this music wash over them. Just for one minute.
