Unconscious mutterings

I've never done this meme before so I'll do it now for the fun of it. It's a no-rules meme, which suits my personality.

1.Suitcase :: Preparing to travel, which I love.

2.Exhaust :: Tuned for maximum performance and efficient engine breathing. Grapefruit shooters don't count, except of course, for dumbass points.

3.Olympics :: Shitty tv coverage. Cover the sports not the talking heads and personal stories, you dipshits.

4.Video :: -tape, which is how I still refer to DVDs when we watch movies. Get the videotape of the new StarTrek movie.

5.Cargo:: cult. Highlighting the idiocy of all religious belief.

6.Previously :: viewed. Got me in a video mode with #4.

7.Wild card :: Football playoffs is in my head after the Saints Superbowl victory!

8.Artificial :: intelligence. 'nuff said.

9.Gambling :: A tax on people with bad math skills. Only with my life, never with my money.

10.Exhibition :: game, cuz of the football thing filling my brain. Generally, I'd think art exhibition.

And while I'm blogging about OLD stuff

I applied this week to begin getting my Social Security payments in May, right after my 62nd birthday!

Ha! Take that, you whippersnappers! As Bette Davis said, "Old age ain't no place for sissies!"

Out with the old, in with the new

Sadly, my old synthesizer, Synthia, is failing. Some of her core electronics are only rated for a lifecycle of about 15 years and she's now 21. (Hey! She's finally legal to go play in a bar. Isn't that nice?) I'll keep her as a secondary keyboard until she's totally nonfunctional but I've been shopping for a replacement primary and here she is.

Please welcome Synthia II, the Rebirth of Synthia in Real Life 3-D. She's a Roland JUNO-Di. Corporate sales pitch is here.

And an official Roland gig bag. However, I'll use my expensive, sturdy, if old, ATA case for the new keyboard and transport original Synthia in the soft case.
