Radio 60, side A, track 15: “New Music promo: The 4 Of Us, Phil Collins, and Partners In Kryme”

cassetteOh, KISD FM, do you consider Sunday the end of the week or the beginning of the week?  I’ve always considered it in this weird limbo that doesn’t really exist in actual space-time.

When I was a kid, I dreaded it because it meant going to church.  I hated going to church.  I would say most of my arguments with my parents took place on Sunday mornings both before and during the car ride to church.  I just found it pointless.  All I did while I was in church was fight to stay awake and/or search for sex scenes in the Old Testament (of which there were quite a few, KISD FM).  I have a basic working knowledge of the Bible due to osmosis.  I mean, you can’t attend as much church as I did and not pick up something.  Enough that I can make connections to the story of Job and Matt’s ordeal in a recent episode of “The Leftovers” and sound reasonably knowledgeable.  And I do wish I’d paid more attention back then.  Not for the salvation of my eternal soul as you might assume but as ammunition to refute “Christians” when they use the Bible to justify hatred, fear-mongering and plain old selfishness.

But this isn’t about me turning my back on what little faith I ever had.  It’s about Sundays.  Since church is no longer an issue, now Sundays are the days that I use to dread Mondays.  It’s the day I try to do as little as possible (which is saying something) to store up enough energy to get through at least the first day of the week.  Sometimes I’m actually even successful.

There really is a point here, KISD FM.  My point is that it’s Sunday, and Monday is looming over me once again, and we all know how insane last week was.  But I’m feeling all right.  In big part because of this little clip of new music previews.  We’ve already heard that great song by The 4 Of Us, and it’s never a bad day when there’s a new Phil Collins song to be heard.  But did you hear that last part?  The one with a song about the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles?!?!?!  O.  M.  G.  I’m just as excited about it now as I was when I first realized that there was going to be a song about Leonardo, Michaelangelo, and Donatello who made up the team with one other fellow.
