Dreamer’s World January 11 2016 – Frustration when writing

There are times when writing can be extremely frustrating. Sometimes this is because we have absolutely no idea what we are writing about and don’t realize it until after we hit “publish”. Then there are times when the tools that we have collected to help us with our writing decide to act up and show what pieces of shit they can be when they want to. Today I have suffered from the second of those examples.
I have a pattern I use when I write. The writing itself is done in Evernote. I use it because it is a cross-platform application so I can access my document from anywhere on any OS and proceed to edit and continue writing. I have had no problems with Evernote, I am happy to say. Since I publish my blog posts to both WordPress and Blogger, I needed an intermediate step to transfer things to both of those apps without losing formatting. The solution I have found is called Blogo. It works like a champ….. most of the time. When Blogo decides to act up, the only thing I can do is to shut everything down and hope to recover my Evernote document in order to try again. To say that this causes frustration would be a galactic understatement.
When Blogo fucks up, I feel like the world has just collapsed all over me. I dread the thought of my work being ruined. Luckily, other than a complete restart and recovery of the Evernote document, I have not lost anything completely. I wonder who else out there has a similar problem when publishing to multiple sites like WP or Blogger.
If anyone has any ideas, please let me know. If you have solved this problem, I am sure you know how those of us still struggling with it feel at times like this.

Dreamer’s World January 11 2016 – David Bowie – WE CAN BE HEROES

I was extremely sad to wake up this morning to hear the news that David Bowie had passed away. His death came as something of a shock, I wasn’t expecting it. It really took me unaware and I felt a rush of emotions as I processed the news. Sadness and nostalgia mixed together as I pulled up some of Bowie’s music.

David Bowie’s genius will never be forgotten. He often remarked that he invented his outrageous on-stage personas because he thought himself rather uninteresting and wanted to give people their moneys worth with his shows. I don’t think he should have worried about that. His talent was enormous.

I don’t think David need have worried about his talent. David gave a generation of kids the courage to be different by being different himself. When he shocked people and made them talk, the next thing he would do would be to reinvent himself in order to stay fresh and provocative. Commercial and mainstream success were not as important to him as creativity and freedom.
I always admired Bowie for his independence. I could always instantly identify new music from him, even if it sounded completely different from the last thing he had done. That was the mark of pure genius.
I only had the privilege to see Bowie once. It was in Pensacola, FL 1990 when he was rehearsing his Sound and Vision tour. The final rehearsal/concert for the US portion of the tour was open to the public with the condition that food was brought to contribute to the local homeless shelter. I hope that Bowie was directly involved in that moment, but the gesture was touching nevertheless. I was awestruck by his performance which was very minimalistic. There was only a screen behind him that showed images. There were no pyrotechnics, no lighting effects other than the spotlight on Bowie and the musicians.

David Bowie setlists

 
I was also not surprised to hear that Bowie called out MTV on their refusal to play music by black artists in the early 1980s. A humanitarian and philanthropist, to say the least. He didn’t have to bring the subject up at all, but he chose to.
One of my musical heroes has gone. I will remember him whenever I hear one of his countless epic songs. He taught the unpopular to be cool, He taught the outsiders to fit into the world on their own terms. He taught us all to embrace our individuality and express it. He inspired a generation of musicians and artists.
One of his songs calls on us to be “Heroes, if just for one day”. Bowie was and will always be a hero.
