Defragged

leave a comment »

It’s kinda like a person going without a shower for a few months. Go without defragging a laptop’s hard drive for several years, which I think is how long it’s been, and things start getting rather rank.

And it’s kinda like trying to take that first shower after all those months with just a trickle of water coming through. Try to defrag with only about 200 meg of free space when the system wants close to 6 gig to do the job, and first you have to try to unclog the pipes. Read the rest of this entry »

Zen Tracks [18] Joan Baez: We Shall Overcome

leave a comment »

Zen Vision MWe Shall OvercomeJoan BaezJoan Baez In Concert, Part 2
[3:26] * * * *

Seems distantly appropriate that I had some strange problem passing a copy of this over to my Zen Vision:M, as if perhaps my father were still hovering nearby. This song was my childhood introduction to censorship. Ten years old in a sheltered household with no television, very strongly filtered news input, and radio and vinyl that rarely peeked beyond religious or classical music, I had virtually no awareness of the civil unrest, the war, or much of anything going on beyond our home, our church, and our elementary school. Then Baez’s second concert album found its way into our house as folk music. I soaked up every note and every word like the driest sponge. Then came home from school one day to find the album missing. Later that night upon taking out the garbage, finding it broken in the trash can. An accident, I was told. But I was sternly reprimanded in the days following whenever I was caught humming or singing this particular song, so it wasn’t difficult to figure out that the only “accident” had been opening a window to the real world.

When did everyone else stop singing this? Am I the only one who still does so every day?
