Catamount Community Radio - November 22, 2015

To get to the radio station you have to climb a rather significant hill, and I do it on a bicycle. Last week as I got to the top I was repeating to myself, for no reason in particular, "fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck." I thought I was alone, but I soon realized that there was an Asian girl walking by. I just pretended everything was normal. And I guess it was. A cold one this morning, though I kept my four-letter words to myself.

Bob Dylan doesn't cease to impress me. I'm just gonna take a chunk out of the middle:

When you think that you've lost everything
You find out you can always lose a little more
I'm just going down the road feeling bad
Trying to get to Heaven before they close the door

I'm going down the river
Down to New Orleans
They tell me everything is gonna be all right
But I don't know what all right even means

I was riding in a buggy with Miss Mary Jane
Miss Mary Jane got a house in Baltimore
I've been all around the world, boys
Now I'm trying to get to Heaven before they close the door.

Or, how about the New York Dolls?

Yeah, I been to the doctor
He said there ain't much he could do
"You got the human condition
Boy, I feel sorry for you"

There's a sorrowful joy
I've known since I was a boy
Joyful sorrow I guess
It's a maimed happiness.

All this and more. It's a goddam musical cornucopia. Keep that in mind.
