Tonight, I dreamt of being with a great girl. She asked me what kind of girl I liked and I told her she was pretty close to my ideal. Except she had a little acne, which is a temporary thing. My mother had found a bank statement of mine, and was downstairs yelling that I had to close something at the bank. But I yelled for her to stop, as I had plans, (probably for a loan or something). I knew she was still intent on leaving for the bank, so I had to go downstairs to stop her.
My mother, like a lot of people, often did things out of jealousy, which she was convinced was moral rectitude. I believe this was partly harmful to my childhood. But it also helped teach me a few philosophical lessons, I guess. Although my father had to put up with this, as well, my father also harmed my childhood in some ways. But I also dreamt of him last night. Again, dreaming of younger times usually means the body, (and therefore psyche, is healing). I miss the girl of my dream, and wish I had a happier life.
I saw, "Godzilla," the other night. A pretty good movie. But a blatant continuity flaw occurred near the beginning, which boggled my mind - how it got through, in a movie created by hundreds of people and millions of dollars. Bryan Cranston's wife was running out of a dangerous tunnel. In some slices, she was at the back of a running group. But in the view from the front, she was at the front of the group. Crazy. Otherwise, a fairly good movie. Didn't give me nightmares.
I have three more things to say about Badfinger:
1 - Their hit song, "Baby Blue", was used at the end of the series, "Breaking Bad," you may remember.
2 - I forgot #2 - later.
3 - Ringo's song, "With a little help from my friends," was written by John Lennon. Since he had hurt a finger, and was using only one finger to compose it at the piano, the tentative title for this song was, "Bad Finger Blues," thus the name of the band. However, George has a different claim about how Badfinger got his way, and I tend to think George might be right. I am including this piece of trivia 'cuz a comment from a new LJ friend reminded me of it.
Rick Ocasek of "The Cars" died. Very innovative band... Searching Ocasek on Wiki, I accidentally spelt his name, which looked something like, Rick O'Casket...
The band broke up in 1988, and Ocasek had since stated that a reunion would never happen. Orr died in 2000 from pancreatic cancer. In 2005, Easton and Hawkes joined with Todd Rundgren to form a spin-off band, the New Cars, which performed classic Cars and Rundgren songs alongside new material. The surviving original members reunited in 2010 to record a new album, Move Like This, which was released in May 2011, followed by a short tour.
In April 2018, the Cars were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and reunited once more to perform at the induction ceremony. The reunion was their final performance with Ocasek, who died in September 2019.
