Tenth Post Replay

Saw it on Patty’s blog: “Magpie’s Nest

“repost your 10th blog post”

Sounded like fun.

So I went back to December 2008

and WOWH…now THAT’S appropriate to repost!

(since my son goes to the University this year and all..)

Here it is:



I live with two men in the house. One was born in the 1950’s and one was born in 1992… but they both love the music of the band Chicago. Not the latest albums, but the music the band used to play in the seventies. My son especially loves the song “Dialogue”, and so I made a layout about that song (with my son in the leading role.)

I used the little
picture my son
uses as “avatar”
on the internet
when he writes
comments on
blogs, and the
picture of the
my blog shows
when comments
don’t come with
an avatar.



Although the lyrics
of this song were
written in the
the text still has
a great topical value!

I realize the text is
hardly readable on
the scan (and the
layout is all about
the lyrics!) so hereby
I give you the text…



Are you optimistic ’bout the way things are going?


No, I never ever think of it at all


Don’t you ever worry when you see what’s going down?


No, I try to mind my business, that is, no business at all


When it’s time to function as a feeling human being
Will your Bachelor of Arts help you get by?


I hope to study further, a few more years or so
I also hope to keep a steady high


Will you try to change things, use the power that you have,
the power of a million new ideas?


What is this power you speak of and this need for things to change?
I always thought that everything was fine


Don’t you feel repression just closing in around?


No, the campus here is very, very free


Don’t it make you angry the way war is dragging on?


Well, I hope the President knows what he’s into, I don’t know


Don’t you ever see the starvation in the city where you live
All the needless hunger all the needless pain?


I haven’t been there lately, the country is so fine
But my neighbours don’t seem hungry ’cause they haven’t got the time

Thank you for the talk, you know you really eased my mind
I was troubled by the shapes of things to come


Well, if you had my outlook your feelings would be numb
You’d always think that everything was fine


And now you want to here the song also, I presume?
The song my son loves… Here it is!

I hope you liked my “Replay”!

What did you blog about in your 10th post?

    What a cool lay-out 🙂 Love that song. Oh I will have to check on what I posted back in 2007. I am sure there was no picture attached 🙂 I Didn’t figure that out for a bit. Ah the good ol days of computer illiteracy 🙂
