ragtags studio central: sarah's random this & that

random means "having no definite aim or purpose," (1655), taken from "at random" (1565), "at great speed" (thus, "carelessly, haphazardly"). In 1980s college student slang, it somehow, and sadly, acquired a distinct sense of "inferior, undesirable." (Online Etymology Dictionary, Douglas Harper) Well, okay, fine, Mr. Online Etymology Dictionary person, but THIS is the 21st Century. It's a whole new ball of wax.

If you get in a bar room fight. . .

John Martyn
Laid-back, irresistible music to listen to when you're sitting on the front porch at 9:00 on a mid-summer's night, when the heat hasn't quite left the pavement and you're oh so glad just to be alive.
