Strange Days Indeed: The Long Search?
As any of you may know, I'm a research nut (as well as an 80s one.) To my left at this moment are about 40 books -- easily accessible -- that I can reference music data at a momentary mention. I have people come to me to find things all the time and I get ticked that they don't bother to look for themselves when all it takes is a few words in a search engine. But, there has always been something that I couldn't find online but was reticent to pursue too heavily.
I'm not going to say what it is but I mentioned it years back in one single post. But, it's funny how you decide to try typing something into a search engine for the hundredth time or so over the last... well, there was a point when the Internet wasn't available... anyhow, suddenly things pop up. You see a connection, then 1, 2, 3... all corroborating it. So, take the feeling of trying to find a rare song from your youth that you only know a few words to and multiply it by a few hundred. Strange days indeed. It must be why I'm shaking.
