Plaid

Songwriters don’t use “plaid” enough in songs.

Imagine if it was …

-Plaid Submarine
-Plaid Haze
-Plaid Eyed Girl
-Plaid … by Coldplay
-Plaid Velvet
-Plaider Shade of Pale
-Plaid Sugar
-Plaid Onions

… it might be nice in band names or for individual artists too!

– James Plaid
-Plaid Sabbath
-Barry Plaid
-Plaid Hot Chili Peppers
-Plaid Oyster Cult
-Johnny Cash … the man in plaid

… even as an album name!

The Plaid Album by The Beatles

 

note: I’m sure there must be some plaid in country music.

double note: I’m dreaming of a Plaid Christmas

triple note: Bob Dylan‘s Plaid on Plaid would sound even cooler!
… maybe it would be “Plaide on Plaide“.

Today #77

Today might be like a game of roulette: all black and red.
… if things start moving too fast, it might turn out plaid.

The Whybrid

Here is a question for resident wind expert Prairie Flounder over at
 Sky Fishing :

Would a car with special high-tech pinwheels/whirly-gigs on it be able to create enough energy to run the car?

As soon as a car starts moving, all those things would be working non-stop.

It makes sense to me, but that’s not saying much.

 

note: maybe Bob Dylan was right, “The answer is blowin’ in the wind.

notes to myself #197

Growing up and getting older are two very different things.

Windy

dirty old snowmen!

It was really windy today.

I think someone in Australia kicked sand in my face!

 

note: the flags were in a big flap and the wind chimes were blown into a different “chime zone”!

double note: I wanted to take a picture of the wind, but you can’t see wind; it’s invisible or something like that!  So … here are a few dirty old snowmen instead.

 triple note:  I thought I saw the answer blowing in the wind, but it was just a plastic bag: maybe I’m not asking the right question!

Road Trippin’

e_bunch_o_hippies11
The pump don’t work ’cause the vandals took the handles” Bob Dylan from “Subterranean Homesick Blues

 

Aren’t road trips great?

Driving off to parts unknown for a big adventure with a bunch of friends.

Anything could happen!

Whether just a couple of days, a few weeks, or longer; it’s almost like being in a Bob Dylan song, a Jack Kerouac book, or a Tom Green movie.

A road trip in any kind of vehicle is great; but for me, travelling in a van just adds another dimension to the greatness of a road trip.

Maybe it’s the nostalgia factor: all those hippies driving around having free love all over the place, blowing their minds at never ending giant outdoor rock festivals, and getting to be in that old Woodstock movie.

I guess hippies used vans for different reasons: they held a lot of people, were relatively cheap, and had a built in pad to crash in. 

Those hippies were a pretty practical bunch, but not very nostalgic.

 

note: should this van be called “Morrison“?

double note: Wavy Gravy is 72 years old.
