Ghost Of Love

I was reading about David Lynch one night as well as listening to the sound track of his movie "Inland Empire" one night. The next morning I heard the same song on WFPK so I had to post it. It seemed like I had to.

Comfortably Numb

There is a Pink Floyd song which they play on the radio to this day. That song is  'Comfortably Numb' which has the most noted and famous guitar solo of all time played by David Gilmour, who was co-writer of the song with Roger Waters.

According to Rolling Stone, Roger Waters was injected with tranquillisers for stomach cramps by a doctor prior to playing a Pink Floyd show in Philadelphia on the band's 1977 In The Flesh' tour. "That was the longest two hours of my life", Waters said. "Trying to do a show when you can hardly lift your arm". The experience gave him the idea which eventually became the lyrics to this song.

Although much of Pink Floyd's music was good for its time in the 60's and 70's, 'Comfortably Numb' stands the test of time and is a classic.

Tonight we went out to eat with friends, then came back to our house to eat desert. A beautiful relaxing evening. Wife makes a mean pie too.

Magnifique

We were browsing the wares at Williams Sonoma. Wife has been wanting to buy new pots and pans, specifically the pricey five ply all clad pots and pans. I don't blame her for wanting the best. She loves to cook and she's good at it, so...what the hell.

This five ply all clad stuff is supposed to heat up faster and, so the saleswoman said you'll almost never have to turn the burners above medium flame. I can't wait to fry myself some gourmet bologna sandwiches...I'm sure they'll be magnifique.

Last week we celebrated a birthday and wife baked a rasberry chocolate cake. It fell apart as she was pouring the ganache on the three layers. It didn't look so good but was heaven to eat. I called it Firing Range Cake and wife gave me the stink eye.
