Voice Post: Live from the streets of Atlanta

387K 2:01
“Sad but sadly typical: Just saw an older guy in a wheelchair pushing himself around with his one good leg. The other leg was stuck out in front and had a clamp with some huge screws and pins coming out of it, like it was set. He should *not* have been out like that. Meanwhile this was a just around the corner from Grady Hospital. Yet I have to just walk on, what could I possibly do?”

It's Still Friday (Barely) So...

First -- fridayfiver

1. When do you doubt yourself?
When I get dressed in what I think looks really nice and only *after* I go out do I realize I look like an overweight East German prostitute. I didn't *mean* to look trashy, but... but... *sputters*

2. Who do you owe an apology?
Several of my clients.

3. When is the last time you felt embarrassed?
Walking around the gym at Emory, with everyone being 10 years younger. I don't feel I need to hide or anything but I just kind of wonder if anybody thinks "Man, she *needs* to work out!"

4. What do you ignore?
Crazy streetpeople and professional pandhandlers.

5.Do you love yourself?
Yes. I do some stuff that's harmful to myself but I swear I don't mean to.

And then -- thefridayfive

1. Do you download music not from the popular genres of Top 40, pop, rock, rap, dance, R&B, or country?
Yes. I download ambient, industrial, techno, Renaissance, Mozart, Chopin, Bach.

2.Are there any musicians for whom you've downloaded a significant amount of their material yet own few or none of their albums?
Klaus Nomi.

Red Flag!

4.How many different ways of playing music do you own (such as radio,stereo system, computer, Walkman/Discman, mp3 player, mp3-ready phone,etc.)?
Let's see... computer, 2 CD/DVD players, cassette deck, phonograph, radio, mini-radio... 7.

5. Do you still have and/or play a favorite vinyl album, cassette tape, or 8-track tape?
Yep. I have a lot of 33's and a TON of tapes. Most of my tapes are English or Irish bands, everything from Rolling Stones to U2 to the Cranberries. Plus I must have about 2 dozen mixers from the 80s and 90s that I made or friends made. I love listening to those.
