Pink Floyd 50Th Anniversary-A Salute To A Long Time Rock Band

From the first Album The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn to The Endless River  here is a salute to Pink Floyd as they celebrate the 50th Anniversary. I have been a huge Pink Floyd fan for years and just love there music plus there classic 1973 album  The Dark Side Of The Moon, is one of my favorites of all time.Pink Floyd has gone through many line up changes plus different band names before they were known as Pink Floyd and I remember reading in a book that I have called Pink Floyd Learning to fly on how former frontman Syd Barrett came up with the name of the group.

Syd Barrett owned 2 albums by 2 bluesmen Pink Anderson and Floyd Council then took the 2 first names of the artists and ended up calling the band Pink Floyd. When Pink Floyd put out there first single Arnold Layne back in 1967 it became a hit plus the song talks about a man who likes to dress up in women’s clothing. There first album The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn was record At Abby Road Studios during the same time that The Beatles were recording Sgt. Pepper.The entire Debut Pink Floyd album is a true masterpiece and to get the full enjoyment of it it’s best listened with headphones.

The second album A Saucerful Of Secrets is just 3 tracks with Syd Barrett then the other 4 were with new member David Gilmour. This album’s title track goes for almost 12 minutes with space effects  and then slow tempo with harmonizing at the end. Pink Floyd has also put out other great albums including Meddle,The Dark Side Of The Moon,Wish You Were Here,Animals The Wall ,A Momentary Lapse Of Reason and many others. Here is to Pink Floyd on 50 years of  great music.What’s also great is that there are a lot of Pink Floyd Tribute bands that pay homage to Pink Floyd.

Pink Floyd A Momentary Lapse Of Reason Turning 30 -One Of Pink Floyd’s Great Albums

This year Pink Floyd’s classic 1987 album A Momentary Lapse Of Reason will be turning 30 and I still remember when this album came out for the very first time. Back in 1987 on MTV I saw the video for Learning To Fly and thought what a great song and video plus David Gilmour’s lead guitar and vocals just amazing. Of course this is the follow up to the 1983 album The Final Cut and A Momentary Lapse Of Reason is the bands first album without Roger waters who left the band in 1985 to become a solo artist and the other Floyd members carried on.

I remember hearing this album in it’s entirety for the very first time and was blown away by this classic album.The opening instrumental Signs Of Life is just beautiful with the sound effects and the keyboards coming in along with David Gilmour”s amazing guitar work.Then after that track reaches the end it goes in to Learning To Fly which opens with the words into the distance a ribbon of black stretched to the point of no turning back and those words that open that song beautiful and amazing. The 3rd track The Dogs Of war now this is another one of my favorites on this album starting out with the keyboards and synth plus David Gilmour singing his heart and soul out on this track and then 2 plus minutes in the track goes into rock city with the whole band jamming plus killer sax added as well.

When that song ends the 4th track One Slip starts opening with some  sound effects and then starting with the keyboards drums and then at the same time all the instruments and David Gilmour’s vocals get it all started plus this is a song that I can crank up loud and dance to. The 5th track On The Turning Away which is a slow balled is a very beautiful and moving song plus this song brings a very important message it;s a great piece from A Momentary Lapse Of Reason. Track 6 Yet Another Movie/Round And Around  starts out with drum intro and then the band and words coming in and closing with the short instrumental Round And Around. The 7th track A New Machine part 1,is a 2 plus minute piece with just synth and David Gilmour singing and then it goes into track 8 the instrumental Terminal Frost with lots of amazing and clean Guitar work.Track 9 A New Machine part 2 is a quick 38 second track with synth and Gilmour singing a few lines and then going into the 10th and final track Sorrow.First you hear a bit of bass and then a rocking guitar intro and then it gets rocking. over 2 minutes in Gilmour’s Vocals come in then you have a minute plus of instrumental work then some quick words then the last 2 minutes instrumental with the instruments fading out at the end. A Momentary Lapse Of Reason is a great Pink Floyd classic album.

20 Years With Walmart-Celebrating A Milestone With A Long Time Company

At the end of this month I will be celebrating 20 years with walmart  and looking back on 2 decades,I can still remember like it was yesterday. I was hired on March 22nd,1997 and me plus other new hires at that time had orientation plus were giving a tour around the store including the backroom so we had an idea where everything was. I was hired on as a cart pusher collecting carts,and also helping customers out with there items and the way they got a hold of me was using a walkie then would tell me where the customer was that needed help out with there purchases.

A year and a half later I became a cashier including the front end, electronics garden center,etc. There were so many things that I have learned about being a cashier plus having a great team on your side when you had a question or were not sure about something really helped me out a lot. In 2007 we relocated as a supercenter and I was a part of setting up the new store plus at times I would be at the supercenter help setting up part of the day and then go to the other store that was still running and help cashier.The grand opening for the supercenter was on a Wednesday in the middle of March 2007 with the doors officially opening at 8 AM for the first time plus we were very busy that day also everyone worked together as a team.

About a couple years back I have stepped away from being a cashier and became a greeter in the garden center.A year later the greeter position was placed with customer host and I became a garden associate where I still  door greet and also help on the sales floor.It’s amazing how you can first start a job with a company and before you know it 20 years just goes by very fast. Celebrating a milestone with Walmart is a very great achievement.

Never Stop Learning

From a child to a child at heart you are taught something new each day of your life so no matter how young or how old you are, you never stop learning. There are some people that learn a skill when they were younger and have mastered it for many years and there are some that are many years older and learning that skill for the very first time in there lives meaning there is no age limit to any type of education in anyone’s life.

Myself I am in my mid 40’s and been learning how to cook although it’s a late start in life gotta say so far been doing very well at it and if you wanna learn how to cook,play a instrument, or what ever you wanna learn you can do it. The point is that  it does not matter if you are 1 or 101 we all have a lifetime of education because we never stop learning. With the great power of education ,there are so many wonderful things in life that you can learn.

Remembering George Micheal-A Salute To A Great Icon

From his days with Wham to his solo carer George Micheal had many amazing hits we all know and love and today and everyday every single fan including myself is remembering George Micheal. I can remember back in 1984 when I first saw the video and heard  the song Wake Me Up Before You Go Go by Wham plus how I was knocked out with that great singing voice that George Micheal had and the energy he put into the video. That video and song is still one of my favorites from the 80’s and during that time I was in the 7th grade and just a young 12 year old kid.

There were also other great songs from The Wham era including Wham Rap [Do What You Do], Careless Whisper, I’m Your Man, Everything She Wants, Edge Of Heaven and many others. His solo material is also mind blowing and his album Faith is a true George Micheal classic. I remember when my brother got Faith on vinyl back in the day and we played it all the way through from start to finish. Every song on that album is a masterpiece including the title track,Father Figure I Want Your Sex, Monkey etc. All of his solo albums are great but gotta say out of them all Faith is my favorite one. He may be passed on but the music and memory of George Micheal will always live on in each and every  true fans hearts
