DaughterGeeding goes to bed every night with lullaby music, but for some reason, we never started that with BoyGeeding.
A while back, DaughterGeeding and WifeGeeding were in a disagreement about something they saw. At one point, without being rude but contemplative, DaughterGeeding said, “Mom, I have two eyes, you have one eye. I can see better than you.”
I don’t understand why Wikipedia doesn’t include the lyrics to songs on any of those respected pages. They provide all sorts of details for the recording of a song, but never the lyrics. For example, here’s Phil Collin’s “Take Me Home” and Adele’s new song “Hello“.
Speaking of “Take Me Home”, here are some facts about song, though I’m not sure of the validity regarding the source; however the first two items is mentioned on the song’s Wiki page:
Often misconstrued to be about a man returning home, Collins stated on VH1 Storytellers that the song’s lyrics refer to a patient in a mental institution, and that he was inspired by the novel One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest. “Take Me Home” is thus a protest song, with the subject of its protest being the British practice of confining “misfits” to “asylums.”
Sting and ex-Genesis band mate Peter Gabriel sang backup vocals. Also featured is former Culture Club backing singer Helen Terry.
This was originally released in the UK in 1985. It released in the US in March 1986, only after Phil Collins appeared in the TV series Miami Vice.
And until yesterday, I had no idea that Bone Thugs N Harmony sampled “Take Me Home” and featured Collins in their video.
I’ve watched the Disney Junior cartoon “Miles From Tomorrowland” with the kids for a while now, but it just occurred to me that the kids are half-Asian, with a white father and Asian mother. Perhaps it’s time to update my Half-Asian Hall of Fame. When I do, I also need to add the actress that plays Sky/Daisy from “Marvels Agents of S.H.E.I.L.D.”.
There are six United States Senior Military Colleges. Texas A&M University, The Citadel, and VMI are the most well known, can you guess the other three?
I have no issue at all with the first college football playoff rankings of the season, especially the top four. Strength of schedule can’t be ignored and running up the score only counts for style points, and that’s evident by the committee’s standards. For any team whining, there’s still time to crack that top four and prove yourself. I think I’d like to see Clemson win it all.
We got caught up on ‘Fargo’. I totally underestimated Jean Smart’s acting. Man, that’s an excellent show, but I was surprised at the amount of butt cracks in the latest episode. The show is over an hour long and it feels like only twenty minutes went by.
