Hey, hey, my, my

Old man, look at my life, I’m a lot like you were.

Neil Young is still rockin’ in the free world.

    Holy shit. I look at that picture and boy, do I feel old. Been following that gentleman since his Buffalo Springfield days. And not just because I’m from Buffalo.

      I don’t think I picked up on Neil until “After the Gold Rush,” circa 1970.

      He’s largely AWOL in the documentary “Echo in the Canyon” until the closing credits, when he’s seen stomping around in the background, beating the shit out of a guitar. Can’t say I recommend that particular 90 minutes of self-induigence from Jakob Dylan, save for the bits from Tom Petty.

        That was a great album. But I still think Mr. Soul is one of my all timers….along with virtually everything else he ever wrote.

        Never heard this more recent version.

    And the original Mr. Soul.

    Never was much of a fan of this guy – but my question is WTF took you so long to decide Dr. Zuckerberg’s monster was a bad idea and you were no longer going to be a part of it?
    I fought for years with various webmasters and other marketing wizards (even running some ads there) who insisted it would be business suicide not to be on Fakebook. But I finally pulled the plug awhile back and couldn’t be happier!!! F–k the Zuck!!!

      I forget when I bailed on Facebutt. I was supposed to use it to pimp VeloNews posts Back in the Day┬«, but blew it off until “management” caught on.

      Twitter was harder to get rid of, because in its original form it reminded me a lot of headline writing, and I always loved writing a snappy hed. But eventually I pulled that plug, too.

      People say Buttface is a necessary evil, that you can’t get your “brand” out there without it. Happily, I don’t have a “brand,” and I don’t give a shit, so I’m a’ight with fading into the background.

        Twitter is getting to be pretty terrible, so you are not missing anything. Full of pompous assholes, self righteous twits, and virtue signallers. I suppose I fall into all three categories.

        I haven’t killed my account, but am paring back my links on that platform to a few newspapers, columnists, fellow blog travellers,and a few people I communicate with on real world issues. Most of what is on twitter is fit for twits.

        Same stuff they said to me: “Necessary Evil”. But I don’t want to participate in evil and don’t consider it necessary. The last ad thing we did there generated some new names for our newsletter – we sent out a special welcome edition just to them soon after and the results were pathetic. Proved to me that Fakebook advertising claims are BS and the people who use it have attention spans measured in minutes at best.

    Anyone who uses it simply doesn’t value their privacy or their personal data.
