Hey, Mom! Talking to My Mother #440 - 'Everybody Knows" - Musical Monday for 1609.19


Hey, Mom! Talking to My Mother #440 - 'Everybody Knows" - Musical Monday for 1609.19

Hi Mom,

Just one song for today's Musical Monday, which is being posted on Friday 1609.23.

I have fallen several days behind due to an enormous load of grading, including a larger than normal set of final grades due Thursday morning AND falling behind by not completing last week's work, especially due to being "ill" on Sunday.

I first heard of this Leonard Cohen song, "Everybody Knows," in the Allan Moyle film Pump Up The Volume, featured in the two visuals on this page, a film from 1990 starring Christian Slater and Samantha Mathis.

I became entranced by the song and started playing it in my classes first thing every semester, adopting it as a theme song much in the way it was a theme song for the character Hard Harry's pirate radio show in the film.

More in subsequent posts as I catch up, Mom.

But here's the song. If you don't know it, give it a listen.

Reflect and connect.

Have someone give you a kiss, and tell you that I love you.

I miss you so very much, Mom.

Talk to you tomorrow, Mom.

NOTE on time: When I post late, I had been posting at 7:10 a.m. because Google is on Pacific Time, and so this is really 10:10 EDT. However, it still shows up on the blog in Pacific time. So, I am going to start posting at 10:10 a.m. Pacific time, intending this to be 10:10 Eastern time. I know this only matters to me, and to you, Mom. But I am not going back and changing all the 7:10 a.m. times. But I will run this note for a while. Mom, you know that I am posting at 10:10 a.m. often because this is the time of your death.
