Saturday 9: Hey, Soul Sister

Saturday 9: Hey, Soul Sister(because John suggested Train)

If you're not familiar with today's song, you can hear it here.

1) The video was shot on a street corner in Echo Park in central Los Angeles. If you saw a film crew making a video in your neighborhood, would you stop to watch? Or would you just keep walking?

A. Oh, I'd have to stop and watch. My goodness. That happens so infrequently here in the sticks it would make the newspaper.

2) The singer says he remembers his girl in every dream he dreams. Do you remember if you dreamed last night?

A. I don't recall the dream but I know I dreamed.

3) The band Train is from San Francisco. Have you ever visited The City by the Bay?

A. I visited it when I was 12 years old. Old enough to vaguely remember that I was there but not old enough to be good with details.

4) Lead singer Pat Monahan got his start in a Led Zeppelin cover band. Can you name a Led Zeppelin song?

A. Stairway to Heaven. It's really the only one I know.

5) In doing research for this week's Saturday 9, Crazy Sam discovered a publication called Trains, The Magazine of Railroading. What's the last magazine you flipped through?

A. The AARP magazine. Yes, I am old. 

6) Do you consider yourself a leader or a follower?

A. I prefer following but frequently end up leading.

7) Scholars tell us that "To be or not to be" is Shakespeare's most quoted line. Give us another one.

A. Out, damned spot! Out, I say!

8) How do you listen to music on the go? Car radio? CD changer? iPod/mp3 player? Your phone?

A. I listen to the car radio, but I have some songs on my Kindle and listen to those occasionally.

9) Are you a convincing liar?

A. I don't think so.


  1. I like that Shakespeare quote, too. And I have been getting offers for AARP for years - and I only just turned 38! What the?!!

  2. In addition to the AARP magazine, I also get a tabloid sized AARP newspaper. I guess they *really* want my attention!

  3. The sound quality on my Kindle is not that great and I wouldn't want to wear headphones while driving.

  4. If I'm listening to music in the car, it's from a CD. But it's radio for NPR.

  5. AARP. We're all old. But young a heart, we try... :)

  6. I hate that the AARP magazine actually has some good stuff in it

  7. Thanks for stopping by my blog today! Nice to "meet" you here. I enjoyed your post and learning more about you. I lived in Alexandria, Virginia, before moving to Florida. I was in the DC Metro area for 12 years. Virginia is a beautiful state, once you get out of the DC burbs.

  8. Hahaha. I have the AARP magazine in my pile too!

  9. what is the aarp magazine everyone is talking about? granted, it sounds like something that i would be offended to get but i'm kinda offended i'm not getting it if everyone else is?

  10. 1 - I would likely stop to watch filming in my neighborhood. Several films have been shot in Madison, but I've never gone to the filmings. Friends and I were at Mall of America when they filmed "Jingle All the Way" and JUST missed seeing Arnold.
    2 - I know I dreamed last night, but can't remember them.
    3 - Would love to visit San Fran some day!
    4 - Ditto
    5 - Cardmaker Magazine's special holiday edition, at the grocery store
    6 - Ditto
    7 - But soft, what light through yonder window breaks?
    8 - Radio in the car. I don't listen o music while I walk, so as to pay attention to my surroundings and enjoy the sounds of nature.
    9 - Sometimes.


I enjoy your comments and always appreciate the opportunity to visit the blogs of my readers. I hope you have a great day!
