Welcome! (I guess...)

For those of you who by some extremely unlikely set of circumstances happened to stumble upon this page, I apologize to you. For those of you who intentionally came to this page - yikes! As the title of the weblog indicates, these are my Ramblings About Whatever. There is a chance that I will ramble about just about anything (as I am in this introduction), but only a select few topics will actually make this site. Enjoy! (I guess...)

Learned the Name of the Song

It is indeed the moment all of you, my countless followers, have been waiting for - I'm semi-officially bringing the weblog out of semi-unofficial retirement! And what could prompt me to do such a thing? That's a very good question; I'm glad I asked.

Well, as it so happened, I was driving the other day and happened to have the radio on when I caught a song playing that I have long enjoyed, but had never been able to identify. I knew enough about the song by listening to it that Lionel Richie was the singer and that it was likely a Commodores song, but I never paid close enough attention to the lyrics, or remembered them long enough to get to a computer to run a search.

On this occasion, however, I was ready. Once I heard the song playing, I listened very closely. And then when I identified a passage in the song, I pulled over to the side of the street, turned my emergency lights on, took out my phone, and ran a search right then and there. (And yes, all of this did actually happen.)

And what was the result? Well, I'm not going to tell you what the song was, but I will post a link to the video right here, so that you can enjoy it as well. I'll be back sometime within the next day or so with an analysis of the song/video explaining why the song and video have both jumped to legendary status in my mind. Until then, I suggest that you watch the video constantly because this is a great song and a great video.

(Going one step further, if I was ever to start the habit of frequenting stupid karaoke events and I needed my own sort of signature karaoke song, this would be it.)
