Ripped from the headlines!

Not so much ripped per se, but I figure that as much (or little) chance I get to read MOJO magazine, I'd do my own All Back To My Place - taken from their question and answer section to celebrities in the beginning of the magazine.
What music are you currently grooving

I found a kareoke disc on my desk, It has various pop and rock songs on it. Called "Party Volume 2 Disc 2". One track I started singing was The Lion Sleeps Tonight by the Tokens. Call it on my age or generation, but I know this version sung by Timon and Pumbaa in The Lion King. I giggle a bit when I hear it.

What, if push comes to shove, is your all-time favourite album?

It's a tough call, considering I love David
Bowie. Of all the albums I have, I'd have to say either Aladdin Sane or Hunky Dory because the image on the cover of Aladdin has always caught my eye, and I like 'Quicksand' and 'Kooks' on Hunky Dory.

What was the first record you ever bought? And where did you buy it?

The first CD I bought was Boyz II Men in the mid 90s at Wal-Mart. I bought it the same day I bought a CD player ("boom box"). I came into CDs a bit late in life, and only had cassettes and vinyl
growing up. I still prefer it that way too.

Which musician, other then yourself, have you ever wanted to be?

Gee, that's a hard one! Haha. Bowie or Marc Bolan. Maybe a little Elton John.

What do you sing in the shower?

I sing whatever comes to mind; whether it be 60s pop or something I've recently heard on the radio.

What is your favourite Saturday night

Saturday nights, when I get them, are spent listening to A Prairie Home Companion and watching the New England Revolution play. I've not the time to listen to records lately.

And your Sunday morning record?

When I'm in my car, I've found myself listening to Acoustic Sunrise on a local radio station. I love some acoustic melodies, and will spend the duration of the program listening to it.

Right on! (or, Write On!)

Anyway, I've found myself starting in the predicament I've not wanted to be in. After my post yesterday, I felt the tingle of brooding. I've surpassed it for the moment, but am trying not to continue that phase. I want to finish editing, and have aspirations of doing so. Eventually.

Look for more posts to come.
