I won't let them stretch their necks... see my little black egg with the little white specks. Thanks to Lost and Found, I'm reminded of The Little Black Egg. I definitely would have bought this 45. The storyline is intriguing. A guy finds an egg and won't show it to anyone. At one point, Mary and Lee stop by. The end.

'Tis the season...

...for lots of Christmas music to put you in the mood. Let it snow!

Think For Yourself

Do this, don't do that, be this way, don't be that way. Go along with the crowd or else... "Be yourself and make up your own mind about things" was the advice my parents gave me throughout my life. Follow your heart and do what you want to do, not what others want you to do. Below, is a deconstructed version of Think For Yourself. Rubber Soul was recorded in 1965 with a more introspective outlook and a different sound from their previous work. Yipppppppppeeeeeeeeeee!

It's gettin' chilly

Now if I can just find my stash of winter neckwear I'll be all set.
