What do you mean it's not 2004?

It was a time phase moment, a blink of reality at the stillness on the mid-morning when it felt like 2004. Reality came flooding back, filling the room, starting with the new carpet, new chairs, new T.V.,

an empty ferret room.

Still off balance. I thought of calling to check on my Uncle Ralph, but my phone won't connect to his new number.

I'm old.

I can take heart to know that Sirdiablu is older.

I realized that my music collection has a surprising sparse collection from artists of the 21st century. Keep in mind, my definition of a 21st artist is that I first heard of them in the 21st century, so picking up Steeleye Span's 'Bloody Men', doesn't count.

Amy Winehouse counts. KT Tunstall also counts, but really, that's about it.

Then I couldn't think of any that I wanted to buy. I was listening to this girl singing on someone's I Phone and I said, "Well, she's nice, who is she?" and my friend looked at me, almost apologetically and said, "Justin Bieber."

Oof.

My number one source for music has always been the radio and sadly the stations in this area suck. It's all part of the movement to force everyone to Satellite radio and make everyone pay for something that is free.

The Curmudgeon in me forbids that.

Ah, by the way, I now have a Curmudgeon book to study from:

"A man gazing at the stars is proverbially at the mercy of the puddles in the road." Alexander Smith.

Man, that is some great stuff right there.

So, where was I? Oh, yes, radio sucks. So for my birthday I got a Gift Certificate at AMAZON.COM and I bought this album. It is Adele 21. She is rocking!

I also bought an emergency radio, Tangled and, yes, the new Steeleye Span album.

So, I ask you, what album should I add to my 21st century collection?
