I haven't posted much of the summer and I have no excuse. I've just been lazy, I guess. Worse, I'm still way behind on a bunch of fun posts. There's no better way to rectify this bad situation than by jumping in and getting back to it.
Anyway, I was in Boca Raton recently, and we were in a candy store. I came across this box of goodies and was wondering if you would eat something called a Dinglebeary:
I get that the name is clever (well, maybe). But a dinglebeary? I don't know, it just made me think of college for some reason.
How about these shots of Ancient Rome? Pretty cool, right? They're actually painted background scenes used for plays and movies. I guess a lot of the backgrounds now use photos, but I liked these and thought they were cool.
Ever been to Weeki Wachi? Me, neither. Until August that is! And what do they have there? Mermaids! Real ones! Swimming in the water and performing a show! Cheesy Florida roadside attraction? Yeah, but it's been going on for decades and is now a state park. And it is, bar none, the best live mermaid show that I have ever seen in my entire life!
How about some Pennsylvania? There are lots of parks, natural land trusts, and other nature preserves close to my house. And when you go hiking in SE PA, you're going to see some lovely countryside. Here are some examples:
Oops, how did that last one get in here? If you're saying "hey, that's not PA countryside," you would be right. That is from Florida! Can you caption it? How about something like Rising Moon? Moon Over Miami? Crack of Don? I don't know, but something should come to mind.
On a more serious note, how about a great song by a band that I had no idea even existed until recently? It's Hard-Fi, and they are really good. Unfortunately, they aren't touring the US in 2022, but when they do, I'll let you know and we can go see them. Square deal, right? Anyway, here they are:
Don't you love a beach cruiser bike? Me, too. Classic style even if they aren't made for serious riding. But if you're reading BRP, you aren't a serious person anyway, so beach cruisers are made for you! Here's a lovely one (mine) outside of Target in Deerfield Beach. Check out that snazzy basket, too. All that's missing is the surfboard carrier!
I don't know if you saw that the FDA recently approved over-the-counter hearing aids. I guess they've now decided that they're safe? I don't know what those people are thinking, but it's been a long time coming. Why do I mention this? Because this site is supposed to be about music, and if you're a regular reader, you know that means rock music. And rock music is best when played at volume, am I right? Of course I am! So here we go with a true rocker slogan:
Gotta run for now, but I'll be back soon. In the meantime, I'll be watching you.
My name is Bill, and I live in the greater Philadelphia area. I love music, and I have a lot of opinions. This site is primarily focused on music, but sometimes I get off track. I hope you enjoy.
