Is There Life After Retirement?

Archive for October 2022

So I’m in-between, well, there’s a lot of in-betweens that could each be a blog entry on its own. But the relevant one is – I’m in-between seasons of the four streaming TV series that I actually watch – so yesterday I stream surfed. And on my newly subscribed Paramount Plus (aren’t 7 day trials a marvelous thing?) I found a hour long documentary titled “Blondie’s New York,” about the former CBGB band.

Now, the history of the band was interesting, as was getting to know the players. I mean, who knows Blondie beyond Debbie Harry? I didn’t.

But the real treat for me was how deeply they dived into the actual arrangement and production of some of their most favorite songs. Heart of Glass was one of the first songs that I knew and the way they deconstructed it, and put it back together was amazing, even for a non-musician like myself.

If this appeals to you, I highly recommend checking it out. Here’s a link:
