The 'puter I used to use here at work ate itself a few weeks ago. The one I got to replace it is new to the office, but not new (the boss' son wanted a laptop, so we got his old desktop) but it is more powerful and faster than the old one. However, it has some sort of upgraded speaker system and the special power cord wasn't sent along with everything else, so I've got this lovely powerful computer, chock-full of music ability and no way to get at it. The funny thing is, all I ever do is listen to cds anyway. So, I tried to plug in the stupid little speakers that work on anything and this is so upgraded that it laughs at them. Or something. At any rate, no sound comes out.

Instead of hunting around to get the special power cord I need for the upscale speaker system, my boss opted to get me a Sony Dream Machine, so I'm not complaining. I have music at work again! Wheee!

I haven't been carrying my usual cds to work (as there's been no need) so I have some of my older ones that have just been hanging around here. I'd forgotten how much I liked Supertramp's songs, back in the day.

Supertramp
Breakfast in America (1979)
The Logical Song

When I was young, it seemed that life was so wonderful,
a miracle, oh it was beautiful, magical.
And all the birds in the trees, well they'd be singing so happily,
joyfully, playfully watching me.
But then they send me away to teach me how to be sensible,
logical, responsible, practical.
And they showed me a world where I could be so dependable,
clinical, intellectual, cynical.

There are times when all the world's asleep,
the questions run too deep
for such a simple man.
Won't you please, please tell me what we've learned
I know it sounds absurd
but please tell me who I am.

Now watch what you say or they'll be calling you a radical,
liberal, fanatical, criminal.
Won't you sign up your name, we'd like to feel you're
acceptable, respecable, presentable, a vegtable!

At night, when all the world's asleep,
the questions run so deep
for such a simple man.
Won't you please, please tell me what we've learned
I know it sounds absurd
but please tell me who I am.


I'm probably always going to like this song, especially when I'm at work running through the stupid little track of the rat-race.
