“Collect” – Stream of Consciousness Saturday May 29, 2021

Trying to collect my thoughts in order to write down a collection of words for today’s #SoCS post. After thinking about how else to use this word, I’ll decide to press the publish button. Then all the previously collected ideas that could have been used in some way will come to mind.


Stream Of Consciousness Saturday – “ROC” #SoCS

The prompt for today’s #SoCS is “roc“. The first thing I thought of when I read the prompt was rock and roll. I thought about this term on-and-off yesterday and today. I kept thinking, “what can I write about this”? Then as today progressed I thought, what is considered rock and roll music today?

When I think of rock and roll, people like Bill Haley and the Comets, Elvis Presley, Ritchie Valens, J.P. (The Big Bopper) Richardson, The Beatles, and others come to mind. However, some people, myself included, consider the music by these people as “oldies”. Music from the 1970s, from artists like The Eagles, Cream, and Jethro Tull are most likely classified as “classic rock”. I suppose as rock and roll music has progressed and changed over time, different classifications had to be introduced such as hard rock, metal rock, alternative rock, puck rock, etc., the list goes on. When one looks at some of the artists (Jay-Z and LL Cool J) being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this year I suppose they are being inducted because their style of music has some style of rock and roll as a foundation.


To Your Left #SoCS May 8, 2021

“To your left” you’ll see an antiquated communication device…a red, cordless landline telephone. Before the advent of the smartphone, this red item was used to make calls. My parents can’t quite detach themselves from the landline connection. I write this post in jest because there are many younger people who have never used a landline telephone.
