Not so ho hum Friday Random Ten

One way you can be surprised in life is by apparently boring people. That is, someone may seem to just drone on and on without having anything interesting to say, but if you hear them out eventually they reveal something you're glad you heard.

Myself I'm a master of superficially boring silences.

1. TV on the Radio - Tonight
2. Elvis Costello & the Attractions - The Beat
3. Los Campesinos - This Is a Flag.  There Is No Wind.
4. Diana Krall - So Nice
5. Brian Eno & David Byrne - I Feel My Stuff
6. The Magnetic Fields - Swinging London
7. Sarah Vaughan - Ooh, What'cha Doin' to Me
8. Ladytron - They Gave You a Heart, They Gave You a Name
9. Patti Smith Group - Redondo Beach
10. The Kinks - King Kong

In these days of twittering, texting, and all the other forms of instant messaging, it seems anything longer than 140 characters will bore many. I'm glad I'm not like that.

It's always nice to imagine Sarah Vaughn singing for you on a Friday.. or any day.

Ever-shortening attention spans are a boon to some, but not really to the people whose attention is being shortened. You gain by continuing to look and listen.

You got that right. Such a warm and inviting voice.
