The passage of time is flicking dimly upon the screen;
I can’t see the lines I used to think I could read between.
Perhaps my brains have turned to sand.
That’s from “Golden Hours” by Brian Eno. It’s one of my favorite lyrics, as it captures my mood perfectly. As we age, I think that instead of gaining wisdom, we start to lose some of those lessons that we thought we learned when we were young. It’s all part of simplifying – maybe life isn’t as complicated as we imagined it was. Let’s stay simple as we grow old (who knows, maybe I’ll completely change my mind next week and go on about the complexities of life. For now it’s simple).
Today’s podcast is a simple affair, putting together a bunch of great music for you to hear. So tune into to Donovan, Galley Beggar, Steeleye Span, Husker Du, Swans, Massive Attack, Sly & the Family Stone, Parliament, War, the Vaselines, the Dandy Warhols, and the Brian Jonestown Massacre.
This podcast is, as always, available to stream or download at brennick.net. There should be more content there, and I will try to put more things up this year. The podcast is also available to download as a podcast at your favorite podcast streamer – iTunes, Stitcher, etc. The podcast is called brennick.net. Check that out sometime. I welcome suggestions and comments, too – leave them as you will. Thanks for everything you do to encourage me.
