Ennui.

I'm sitting in the computer room, surfing the Internet for something to write about. Most of the news isn't worth giving much consideration; I have nothing to say about Christine O'Donnell, or Obama's attending church or anything found on Drudge.

So, I opened Pandora and created a new "station" of acoustic music. Most of the music being played in this "station" appeals to me....except Pandora kept wanting to play Neil Young or Crosby, Stills and Nash - all of these received a thumbs down.

Nick Drake appeared and received a thumbs up, but what should follow but a REALLY crappy acoustic piece of drivel by John Lennon. By the time he came up, I had already used up my allotment of "thumbs down" and couldn't reject Lennon. To add insult to injury, Pandora decided to play Lennon singing "Imagine" immediately after. Funny, Pandora goes from playing music by someone who was under-rated (ignored, actually) in his time to the most over-rated songwriter in the history of music.

It's nearly noon at the music will be turned off in favor of El Rushbo. Maybe there'll be a better post tomorrow.

Hmmm, looks like you just opened a...Pandora's box.
