New tunes & a candle

I put some new tunes on the ipod yesterday. I found a bunch of empty cd cases of stuff I wanted to put on, but this was the list for today:
  • Neil Young - Live at Massey Hall 1971
  • Neil Young - Unplugged
  • Neil Young - Prairie Wind
  • Neil Young & Crazy Horse - Weld (disc one)
  • Johnny Cash - American IV: The Man Comes Around (just got it - great!)
  • U2 - How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb
  • U2 - All That You Can't Leave Behind
  • Pink Floyd - Dark Side of The Moon
  • The Best of Arlo Guthrie
  • Eric Clapton - Unplugged
  • The Who - The Ultimate Collection
  • Sunday's Off (still one of my fav's. Probably because I used to be a roadie, escort, oh, and dad) :)
I also made another candle last Friday. I only have one mold - a tall medium round. I used up all the wax I had, and put some colored "chunks" in it. It turned out ok I guess, but I got the wax too hot and melted some of the chunks. You're only supposed to heat the wax to 180-190 degrees when using chunks, and I had it cranked up to like 225. Whatever. It still burns.

I don't know why, but I like making candles. I'm not very good at it, and I don't really know what I'm doing, but it's something to do. Lady Jane likes to burn them at night.

I think that last part was typed with a wry smile. Then some astute observer like me comes along and asks the question:

WHAT do you do while you're burning the candles?

I got the Sundays Off CD out this week and played it on the way to work. I love that CD. Your other stuff sounds mighty good, too.

Hearing the Sundays Off CD brings back many memories of some very unique venues. Good times they were.
