Uncle Roger's Notebooks of Daily Life


My life is, to me, ripe with frequent challenges, occasional successes, spontaneous laughter, adequate tears, and enough *life* to last me a lifetime. To you, however, it surely seems most pedestrian. And therefore, I recycle the name I used previously and call this my Notebooks of Daily Life. Daily, because it's everyday in nature, ordinary. These conglomeration of events that are my life are of interest to me because I live it, perhaps mildly so to those who are touched by it, and could only be of perverse, morbid curiosity to anyone else. Yet, I offer them here nonetheless. Make of them what you will, and perhaps you can learn from my mistakes.

New (to me) Music

Last weekend, we stopped off after swim class at a thrift shop that Rachel and I used to frequent (back in the carefree days before children). We picked up a whole mess of books for the kids, a couple of puzzles, a really neat toy for learning to tie your shoes, and some CD's. The CD's were marked $2.99, but they were 30% off -- $2.10 each. Not a bad deal, if you ask me. So here's what I scored:

Chant -- The Benedictine Monks of Santo Domingo de Silos
This album came out years ago and I've always wanted a copy; I've just never been able to bring myself to buy it. It fits in perfectly, however, with my desire to expose the kids to as great and as varied a selection of music as possible.
Junta -- Phish
A Picture of Nectar -- Phish
I first discovered Phish through their version of Jesus Left Chicago on Pandora. I bought that album -- Slip, Stitch, and Pass -- and enjoyed it. So when I saw these albums, I couldn't very well pass them up.
Funky Divas -- En Vogue
This album is a classic, but not really my cup of tea enough for me to have bought it. This, then, was the perfect solution, allowing me to add it to my collection without having to pay a lot for it.
Whatever and Ever Amen -- Ben Folds Five
Can't say that I know anything about the group other than that I know the name. Still, for just a couple of dollars, it's worth trying out something new.

It's not exactly the list of albums I would have bought were I buying from Amazon, but sometimes, that's for the best.
