A Monday I Barely Remember

23:40 (of Saturday, April 11th 2020)

Today is Monday, April 6th 2020 and it's the first working day after a two day break from work. There's still the coronavirus thing going on so I worked from home as did my mom and most if not all of my co-workers. What else?

Well I didn't make any videos today. I didn't write a journal entry today. Looking at my web browsing history, I was looking at a lot of photos of Rory Storm and the Hurricanes. This must've been the day I became interested in the Beatles again. I know that on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday later this week, I would listen to a few new Beatles songs I haven't listened to before, I'll go over those in those entries themselves. Rory Storm and the Hurricanes were of course the band that Ringo Starr was in before the Beatles. It's something I've known for a long time, I just wanted to look at some pictures from back then.

I have some very good appreciation for Ringo Starr's hair back in the moptop days. There was a clip I saw of him in a dressing room just waving his hair around by doing this very fast head wobble jerking motion. He does it sometimes when he's drumming in music videos, but he would only waves his hair once. He did it 2-3 times in this clip and wow I thought it looked cool. I dunno, for some reason that action looked very youthful and "modern" to me. I didn't expect people in the 1950s to have that kind of style and movement. You know what I mean? For some reason I just think people back then were much older fashioned and in a way stricter with their behavior. This hair wave bobble action felt very "today" behavior to me.

What else did I look at today? I also watched some Jimi Hendrix guitar videos apparently. I've not seen him playing the guitar before, I knew he could play some songs with his tongue as he was famous for that, but I never saw him actually play. I watched some his playing and he was amazing. He's regarded as the best guitarist of all time, who died at a ripe age of I think 27? Yeah, 27. He's part of the "27 club" where some big names in music died at the age of 27. I think they all died from drug related incidents.

When I was in my teens I thought I'd be a lot more successful than these musicians at whatever I wanted to do, now that I'm their age I know I still haven't really accomplished anything in my life and I feel talentless and useless. It just felt like I had so much more possibilities, you know? I felt like I could have also conquered music if I wanted to, being a star like them wasn't so hard. Now that I'm older, I realize I'll probably not accomplish anything my entire time being here.

I also looked up Prince, just some images of him. I still don't know much about Prince though, except that he used to have a weird symbol for his artist name and became known as "The Artist Formerly Known as Prince" after that. I also know that he died in 2016, and a bunch of my older co-workers mourned him. I also know of the story that Kesha had, when she snuck into Prince's home to give him a copy of her song. I first read that story I think back in 2010, when her song Tik Tok was first hit the scene. The app Tik Tok has now completely overshadowed Kesha's work by the way, if I search Tik Tok, her hit song is several search items down.

Other than those above items, I also worked today. I don't remember what I did. I wouldn't have even remembered what I browsed this day if I didn't look at my history.
