Week 11/Song 7 and 8

Song 7 - "All is Done"

Song 8 - "My Poor Friend"

In an effort to surpass the results of my procrastination, I'm putting up two songs this week. I'll try to do it again next week and that should pretty much catch me up. The first one is more of a "song" than the second, but the idea of the second one is definitely worth something.

A couple interesting things from my week:

1. I read an article in Rolling Stone about Bob Dylan, and they describe the president of France meeting him backstage and how excited Mr. Sarkozy was to meet Mr. Dylan. It was a great argument for the support of the arts. Even presidents look up to artists. It made me understand who truly occupies the throne in this world. After all, even artists look up to artists.

2. I found out I have a ruptured disc in my neck, which explains all the weird feelings in my back and left hand. It was soul crushing news though, because in all likelihood, it will get worse and, as you all know, playing the guitar requires use of your left hand. Of course, only time will tell, but it has me worried about enjoying the pain free/guitar filled present as much as possible. It's okay though, I'll just have to learn to do this.

3. This video on Juana Molina. Can't wait to see her live
