. . . and not by the channel the last several days. So consider this an open thread. Music talk, Dan talk, kickass-lives-of-The-Hardline talk, you name it, it's yours.
I'll just mention one thing I heard a few days ago that I really enjoyed: In the 5:30-6 am segment, Junior engaged in Writing Talk with George and Gordon. About how hard writing is. He talked about how he started off blogging with some frequency, and how it has now dwindled to about once a month or so. (SEE: www.tickettribute.com, last heard from July 23.)
Like any art, writing is hard, if you do it right. You try to write it carefully the first time, and then go back and edit, carve it down, get rid of anything that gets in the way of your point. (First rule -- have a point.) My sometimes lengthy articles are not good examples of the writer's art, but then, it was easy to write them because I seldom did the things that one needs to do to produce a really sparkling slab of text. I am a speedy typist, which tends to bypass the governor between thought and page. And now I sometimes use the amazing Dragon speech-to-text software, which, if injudiciously employed, is also an enemy to reflection.
An offbeat topic for TWMSG, and a very fine way to start one's day.
