As I blog/type, I am (playing in my mind) listening to HARRY JAMES and his ORCHESTRA! When I am not “hooked-up” to electronics/hifi/cd/33-45-78/etc…. I am “listening” internally. In this way, I can sit right next to the orchestra/band/etc.. and watch. I can replay all the great parts and tunes to my heart’s content. In one’s mind there are no hiss-cracles-pops-skips or missing-jumps.

I have several CD’s from: Leo Kottke and each one has a few extra tunes NOT listed on the lable as a thankyou to his listeners/fans. There can be up to four-extra tunes on each CD, bcause there is always “extra” room on each CD. The old-33lp’s do not have such room. He is one of the few whom have not done a reccording with 80% of the disk used up with OtherPeoples’Music-redo’s.

Sometimes, the REALMUSIC directly from the original recording is the absolute crispy-best!! This is when I [WILL] payfore the full-cost of a legitimite newcopy. Only digital-music never looses it’s “best” quality whenst purchased used. The newartisits are the ones who are not rich-yet and need that “extra” to get going. A weekly program on RFDTV has new artisits occasionally and I will go to their idividual webpage(only source) to pay full-price to purchase and LOVE the music.

I listen(ocasionaly) to an “OLDIES” FMstation in Florida, whom streams pre-paidfore-music instead of an uber-huge library (libary for those in RioLinda), and then still not have the right recording in the right succession on the right day.

With a $35-pocket stereo recording pen, one can record tracks of studio quality… use a “freeware” to edit and mix. Get out your guitar…violin…real-wood/string-piano, trumpet, sax, (etc..) and HAVE AT IT!!

1[ I find music(etc) i like;
2] I wait for a “used” copy to be on Amazon/etc…;
3] I PURCHASE it for up to 99%-less than “new”;
4] or… find it in SalvationArmy/etc… as a “33LP” or TAPE or CD for [50c-to-a-buck]!!
5] There are a plethora of LEGAL “used-music/vids” stores on-line or on-the-street.

As a kid I found small “jobs”-(leafraking, lawnmowing, etc…) and PAIDFORE most of my own “stuff”— my-own: bycicle–lawnmower/supplies–rollerskates–some clothes/shoes–nice warm coat–etc…AND all my-own repairs!! Owning my own stuff means tacking much-better care-of my things!! A few frinds left that bycicle(etc..) out inda weather cause it was “givin’-for-free”… some. later, had “free” room-and-board” in prison.

When I grew-up inda 50′s… I made most of all my toys, with the small toolset provided by my parents. I also learned-how and did many small repairs around my neighborhood…. instead of SELLINDRUGS or JOININGANGS!! My ACQUAINTANCES at school always complained about [how-small] allowance and I would get-out “MY ROLL-OF-BILLS” in WAY-LARGER than my allowance. I would point-out the [first-$35.00] was from fixing [your father's] lawnmower and [your] bicycle!! After this, I had many kids whom I taught to do their-own repairs and “git somma this”.
