The Talkin’ Headline Blues #100

The Talkin' Headline Blues #100

November 4, 2010, right through to November 4, 2013. That sure is a whole lot of headlines. It’s kind of weird that I wrote them both on the same date, the first one and the one-hundreth one.

You can read about why I started doing those on my first post. And you can listen to all the Talkin’ Headlines from that first week here, here, here, and here. (And here’s all of those first five squashed together.)

I only played the Talkin’ Headline tune out at a live show once back in February of 2011. It was this one. I also played one on a live radio show, which was a pretty good time. Listen to the original, non-radio version, here.

So, this tune has had a little small about of success, I’d say. But I’m not quite done with it. I plan to do a thousand of these. So keep listening for the next 19 or so years and see if I make it to number 1,000, okay?

I wonder how the news will change. Probably just a lot more flying car crashes and Justin Bieber obituaries.

The Talkin' Headline Blues #89

Well, I haven’t done a Talkin’ Headline like this in a long time.

Made me giggle.

This is how a Talkin’ Blues SHOULD SOUND. That’s something you’ll hear someone say who’s really serious about Folk Music. Someone who knows ALL THE RULES. Someone who’s a lot better at musical instrumentation than I am.

At various points in time I have been that someone.

At this point in time, I’m not. I’m just enjoying myself. I’ll take note of that. Things go up and things go down. That’s how it is.

These are the headlines for this week, though. No more news, okay CNN.com? Please?! I can’t take in any more except for this! I mean it! Please don’t make me! My brain is not that big….
