You may know me from my time as the lead singer of Creedence Clearwater Revival and my long solo career. I just released my new song, "Weeping In The Promised Land", you can watch the video here! Last year I had the pleasure to record an album of my classics in a project with my children called Fogerty's Factory, you can watch the videos here, which includes a performance of "Centerfield" at Dodgers Stadium!
I also worked on my son's Shane ＆ Tyler's project, Hearty Har, singing background vocals on songs of their upcoming record, Radio Astro; you can watch their videos [here] (https://www.youtube.com/user/HeartyHarMusic)
Thanks so much for the wonderful questions you asked, talk to you all soon!
We've talked about all the good that can come from animal carcasses and I think I've found the supreme use: steal the pelt of a Rockefellers' dog when they're distracted and disguise yourself as their beloved fur baby! They will care for you like a god and you'll never need to worry or want for anything again!
First off, it's a great book. Throughout his presidency, there were so many voices telling me what to think of him and I never really found an avenue to learn about things from his perspective. This book really helped me look back on those years and reflect on them in a different light. Obama really presented a great story from his perspective of the first term of his presidency that conveyed what he tried to do and what frustrated him the most about being POTUS.
My key take away was Obama's focus on the fact that it really is a team that makes the office of President and not the person. I loved how reflective he was on the different people that contributed to his team and how he made it a point to state how they contributed. I feel like one of the messages Obama wanted to convey to the reader is that the current focus of who sits in the office of President is not nearly as important as the ability of the President to surround him/herself with competent and meaningful people no matter their walk of life.
My personal thoughts on this is that we need to shift away from the idea of making America great to making Americans great. It is the people that make a country and not the country that makes the people. I was inspired to try and volunteer more because there shouldn't need to be a dollar sign associated with an idea and sometimes we just need to reach out and do something for the sake of the idea. Voting is an another extension of this thought. I've heard of a proposal that there should be a day off for voting day so that people don't need to worry about missing a day of earning their living in order to vote. Voting is an idea that should be detached from any kind of fiscal pressure. By volunteering we strengthen Americans, not necessarily America. By voting we place certain trusts in Americans, not necessarily America. Americans need to step up, not necessarily America.
Anyway, this book was inspiring. I hope I didn't get too political in my ramblings. I would like to hear others thoughts.
AND I AIN'T DOIN' NO DAMN BUSY SEASON!!!
When I was a kid, Lands End was the company my mum bought all her clothes from, and I couldn't have named a less 'cool' brand. As I have gone into my twenties and now my thirties, I am suddenly looking at their stuff and seriously considering buying it. Is this what growing up is all about? Have I lost my youth or just gained some maturity and perspective?
