    At last, a Dylan entry from me!

    Such a simple song that a strummer needs a different instrument, so I "picked" the Firefly banjolele!

    The site truncates my signature so I can't tell you

    Hi Edwin! Here’s a Tim O’Brien song about computer struggles...

    I’m Running Out Of Memory For You
    Tim O’Brien
    2005

    Running Out Of Memory For You
    Tim O’Brien, 2005

    Well, I got an email from you, darlin’
    It said you’d sent me a file
    It was a full-length picture, JPEG format
    But, I never got to see you smile…
    I thought of what you might be wearin’
    Just then, my server software froze
    I tried rebooting, tried compression
    But, it would not open past your nose…

    My color screen won’t even function
    It’s one big, solid field of blue
    My hard drive, it went soft
    My application coughed
    And, I’m runnin’ out of memory for you

    Well, sat alone there at my workplace
    Just a’ thinkin’ of the good times that we had
    I was dumping data to a zip drive
    I was stroking on the old mouse pad
    I went down to my computer center
    Just to buy me a megabyte of ram
    Then I hurried on back to my workplace
    I had my memory module in my hand
    I opened up my PC casing
    I thought I knew just what I’d do
    But, it was all for naught
    There were no expansion slots
    And, I’m runnin’ out of memory for you

    My color screen won’t even function
    It’s one big, solid field of blue
    My hard drive, it went soft
    My application coughed
    And, I’m runnin’ out of memory for you

    Spot of the Antarctic, an epic journey... equal to climbing mount Everest.



    As you plough through the snows of December
    Remember that poor Captain Scott
    Wasn't he the second to reach the South Pole?
    Well no, in fact he was not.
    Roald Amundsen, he was the first
    Or that's what everyone reckoned.
    But we've all been under a misapprehension
    I've been toald that Roald was second.
    When he arrived at his goal
    A small patch of yellow snow marked it
    For who was first to the pole
    Spot of the Antarctic.

    Hello again, Edwin! I'm sorry, I've been a bit absent this week, but this song came to me as soon as I saw your theme; it took forever to track down any chords, though! (I was, of course, wearing khaki shorts when I recorded it.)

    "The single biggest problem with communication is the illusion that it has taken place" George Bernard Shaw

    "Happiness is having a large, loving, caring, close-knit family in another city" George Burns

    Thanks for your latest contributions everyone! By my reckoning, so far we have:

    • 18 mountain/hiking songs (of which two are Dylan songs)
    • 9 computers/technology songs
    • 8 Dylan covers


    We're getting late in the week now, and I'm enjoying your takes on Bob, so I think I'll lift all the limits. So you can submit as many as you like, and if you want to submit a Dylan song you don't need to submit something else first. If you do that, I'll see if I can manage to shoehorn it into one of the main sub-themes somehow.
    - Edwin

    Brian (Pa) and I must have been thinking along similar lines this week, because we both seem to have the same attitude to climbing "Chomolungma" - as the Tibetans call it.

    My contribution tells the tale of a self-obsessed banker and his attempt to climb the highest mountain in the world.

    Hope you enjoy:
