That's the sound of me, working on the chain gang!

Hi folks,

though I know about the sad background of the song,I really love it. It's so powerful and Sam has such a great voice, just listen and enjoy:

And you know what? It really gives you the xtra push needed while working hard, which helped me a lot to survive day 1 of our annual "clearing out and cleaning up"- day(s).
Let's throw a short glance at today's accomplishments:

The point of departure:
  • our living room, about 20 m²
  • two people - the bald guy and me
  • two desks, 1 antique dresser, 3 single book shelves and 2 large storage racks, a couple of stackable boxes, endless numbers of smaller and bigger folders and stacks of paper - most of them remains of my exams
  • lots of stuff that found its way into our roomduring the last year, it's unbelievable what you can find in your own home!
The interim result so far:

  • 6 hours of work
  • 66 pounds of paper - honestly!!! - I couldn't believe it when I looked at the scale.
  • 2 big bags full with garbage
  • 1 box with different stuff, things you don't really need, but can't throw away either
  • my back hurts and the bald guy has a headache
  • it will take as at least another two days to finish this *sigh*
But still - I want to finish this! I want to start in my new life without old tasks latching onto me. And to be honest - it feels pretty good afterwards. It frees you somehow.
There's only one more thing that concerns me:

Should I get rid of my tape collection - you know those little things, we used to record music on from the radio when we were younger and couldn't use iTunes or emule. I don't know if I will ever listen to them again, but somehow thy are a part of me!

What do you think? Is it important to keep stuff like that or does it slow our moving forward in life down?

WOW.... Great song!

SO you said the song has a sad meaning so whats the sat meaning behind it? Is it about someone in jail working the rocks?

Ps.. I still have tapes and I still use them to this day in 2008 heheheh for those songs I havent downloaded to my computer yet!

I still listen to my tapes... the ones I haven't worn out. But if I knew I wouldn't ever listen to them again, I'd probably be willing to throw them out.
