Song of the Day – “Too Many of My Yesterdays” by Peter Hammill

Just a dude and a piano. This pic came up for a Google image search of “dude” and “piano”.  So here it is. I’ve become quite fond of Mr. Hammill’s solo music, and I even like (most) of his 80s stuff.  Some of it is bland 80s pop, but at least he didn’t have entirely […]

Song of the Day – “Like a Rolling Stone” by Jimi Hendrix

Printers Through Windows

I was all set to get lots of stuff done today.  I still have a ton of music to Mikeify.  I got another album by Peter Hammill today, so I was going to do that one and put it on the iPod.  I ordered his 80s albums last week from Amazon.ca, and every single one […]
