I haven't blogged in a while, so I thought I should at least write something now.
These are some Rock and Folk songs by musicians who were popular in America in the 1960s, especially among younger people who were increasingly dissatisfied with how their parents' generation was running the country.

"Machine Gun" by Jimi Hendrix.
A song against the war in Vietnam.
I don't think this song in particular was popular, but Hendrix was.

"The Times They are a-Changin" by Bob Dylan

"For What It's Worth"
Inspired by a protest against curfews at clubs in Los Angeles

"Bad Moon Rising"
I don't know what this song is about, but I like it!

    Back to 80s, pumpkin is one of my  family's staple vegetable.

    Traveling a lot, thinking a bit and then taking some reading, what a joyous lifestyle! When here is free time for free disposal, stringing together the fragmental memories into pieces of writing works, share them with like-minded, it's kind of another sort of  luxurious treatment.
