The Return of Performance Videos!

Dear Readers,

Here's the reason why posting has been light and limited recently. I was without access to the internet here at home for most of a week. What ensued was very much a comedy of errors. Early last week it was discovered that the intermittent internet coverage I had been experiencing was the result of squirrels who had shredded the wires to the outside cable box. When a repair crew came around to fix that issue, they inadvertently cut the main wires to the entire complex, rendering absolutely everyone who lives here without cable television and internet service. The problem was finally repaired properly yesterday afternoon.

What follows is a favorite song of mine, though I'd encourage those inclined to analyze the lyrics to look well beyond the literal meaning. It has been an anthem of sorts recently.

"I don't want to say too much, don't want to spoil it...If you get it, great. If you don't, that's fine too. But you should probably read more."



Did you ever have to make up your mind?
And pick up on one and leave the other behind?
It's not often easy and not often kind
Did you ever have to make up your mind?

Did you ever have to finally decide?
And say yes to one and let the other one ride?
There's so many changes and tears you must hide
Did you ever have to finally decide?

Sometimes there's one with big blue eyes, cute as a bunny
With hair down to here, and plenty of money
And just when you think she's that one in the world
Your heart gets stolen by some mousy little girl

And then you know you'd better make up your mind
And pick up on one and leave the other behind
It's not often easy and not often kind
Did you ever have to make up your mind?

Sometimes you really dig a girl the moment you kiss her
And then you get distracted by her older sister
When in walks her father and takes you in line
And says, "You better go home, son, and make up your mind"

And then you bet you'd better finally decide
And say yes to one and let the other one ride
There's so many changes and tears you must hide
Did you ever have to finally decide?
