I have been nowhere lately.. the bank several days ago but that is about it. Mostly I have been watching congressional hearings-- with the volume up. I seldom watch television with the volume on-- unless a movie, and certainly not congressional hearings.
I continue to search Youtube for old music. I knew of Nina Simone because of the movie Point of No Return with Bridget Fonda.
When I found this song, Let It Be Me by Nina Simone on Youtube-- I wondered why she was not amongst my father's old records. I love his music. Things like this I wish I could ask my father.
What does this have to do with the post title? I am distracted and could not think of something else.

After figuring out how to get my Macbook display to work earlier this month, abstract noise suggested the FBI is more involved in my issues than I thought-- and I am pleased. These two factors have both calmed me and allowed me to take a mini break where work is concerned.
So what have I been up to? Listening and researching music, reading, thinking about a couple of projects and hoping my ordeal is coming to an end. Tomorrow? No-- but I hope soon.
Here are a couple tunes I found last evening that I especially like:
I absolutely love Youtube. So much so-- the Youtube Music Search Interface on the WiredPages Arts & Entertainment page-- is one of my favorites.

Had a jam session with Aaron Neville and Van Morrison last night.. thought I would share.
Jimmy Webb's lyrics always make me stop and think.. he is the writer behind songs like Macarthur Park and By the Time I Get To Phoenix. I woke up early this morning and a talk show had a guy on with a full band [horns, keyboards, electric guitars]-- doing rap. I will understand if you think me musically out of it..
