So our very own Dr. Saunders asked “So, what do you like that marks you as a foreigner or cultural outlier?” and, for the life of me, I couldn’t think of anything. Well, not anything worth commenting about, anyway.

And then it hit me:

I used to have Jesus hair and wear embroidered shirts! I used to listen to hippie music! I used to listen to neo-hippie music!

And that got me thinking about Maggies Dream. This was the band put together by Draco Rosa and if you say “hey, I remember him, wasn’t he in Menudo?”, you should know that yes! He was! This is that guy! He made another band! It was neo-hippie! I couldn’t make this stuff up if I tried!

Anyway, while I remember the album fondly, I only remember two of the songs without having listened to it since, oh, 1991 or thereabouts. This is one of them.

So… what are you listening to?


Jaybird is Birdmojo on Xbox Live and Jaybirdmojo on Playstation's network. He's been playing consoles since the Atari 2600 and it was Zork that taught him how to touch-type. If you've got a song for Wednesday, a commercial for Saturday, a recommendation for Tuesday, an essay for Monday, or, heck, just a handful a questions, fire off an email to


  1. Dizzy Gilespie- Afro-Cuban Moods
    Friends of Dean Martinez- all four of their albums. They are instrumental groups with a million influences: cinematic themes, surf, post rock, lounge, ambient, americana, etc. The guys from Calexico used to be in the band. Great southwestern band.

  2. ‘…Draco Rosa and if you say “hey, I remember him, wasn’t he in Menudo?”, you should know that yes! He was!’

    I… okay, you win.

    I can’t top that. I also can’t stop laughing.

  3. A little while ago?

    Two women asking me to join their bible study.

    This was a unique experience for me as a homeowner.

  4. What I was listening to a few days ago was the “ding” sound of getting the trophy for finding all 440 riddler trophies. 🙂

    No, it really wasn’t worth it.

      • Often with video games, as with books, when I get to the end I have a hard time accepting that it’s really over. Trophy hunting is a way to say goodbye slowly.

        Even after I finished that, I still zipped and flew around the city for a while, unable to accept that there really wasn’t anything else left to do.
