Against all logic...  
I'm feeling nostaligic. *__* So I'm listening to other people sing Buddy Holly's songs and slowly remembering the words. Le sigh.

For anyone who doesn't know, in the sixth grade my concepts of cool were 1) The X Files and coming in a close 2) Buddy Holly. That is to say, I had a friend who was obsessed with Buddy to the point of it being annoying. Except that Buddy actually is cool. He sang good songs. It's sad that he died. There was something in the paper about a Buddy memorial concert tonight. They said tickets sold out in six minutes. *frown* I'm glad people are going and all (and hopefully they're going in part because they liked Buddy) but if I had known about it, I would have liked to go too! And I wouldn't have been able to get tickets! *sob*

And Buddy may have died in February, but I want to say a hearty "Rest in Piece" to Charles Harden Holley, our favorite Cricket.
Current Mood: nostalgicnostalgic
Current Music: Joan Baez - Play Me Backwards (ok, I know it's not Buddy)

"Ooh ooh, I look just like Buddy Holly..."

He made geek chic, he influenced the Beatles, and he made country-rock enjoyable. He definitely kicks at least 90 kinds of ass. :D :D :D
