Food for Thought #3

Two posts in one day because Lee has posted the next Food for Thought

Appetizer: What was the last song that got stuck in your head?

Well the other day, I had "Video Killed the Radio Star" because of the Entré question. Generally I wake up with something in my head, apparently I have an internal sleep-radio, but for the life of me, I don't know what it's been since it's now evening.

Soup: What does that song make you think of?

The 80's, VH1, living in California. The funny thing is, I don't really remember being aware of the song at that time.

Salad: What is your favorite song in a language other than your native tongue?

Sadly, "Frère Jacques" is the only thing that comes to mind. But it does stick in my head often.

Entré: If video killed the radio star, will the Internet kill Literature?

I don't think so. Personally, because of the internet I've become more aware of literature that I may not have come across through just bookstore browsing. In fact, my bookcases are overwhelmed these days.

Dessert: What was the last thing you read for the pleasure of reading?

  1. A Lion Among Men (#3 of Wicked books)
  2. Spinning in the Old Way (preparing a little to learn to spin on my drop spindle)
  3. Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Last Straw (#3 of this series, read with son)
  4. Harry Potter Sorcerer's Stone (ok, as an audio book, introducing son to the idea that books are better than the movies)
Also, I can post this hat now that I know my friend received it. She had stated that the previous hat I made for her baby boy was her favorite one because it fits so well but her husband said it didn't match baby's outfits. (he's a boy's boy, my son was too, rarely in "baby" stuff). Anyway, since she's a wonderful person, I cast on this hat and mailed it off. Her husband likes this color too!

I'm slow reading this week. Thanks for including a link back. Also, thanks to Kelly for playing.

I think you're right about the literature changing over time and writing. Our minister sent out a message this week asking for what we thought about texting, instant messaging, email, and the Internet reducing the amount we use our voices. Weird, huh?
