Daze Like These


As I ponder the digital experience and how we are living our lives partially on the Web as well as in the realm of the tangible, a song from the past rings timeless and true. There is much to say about what I'm observing, and very little time to say it in.

Indeed "...Everybody's running, and no one makes a move..."

"Nobody Told Me," by John Lennon was released in 1984 on the album "Milk and Honey."

The song covers a lot of the experience of the way things are today- 25 years after its release. Was it that obvious at the time to Lennon what our society and culture would become?

Nobody Told Me lyrics

Everybody's talking and no one says a word.

Everybody's making love and no one really cares.

There's nazis in the bathroom just below the stairs.

Always something happening and nothing going on.

There's always something cooking and nothing in the pot.

They're starving back in China so finish what you got.

Nobody told me there'd be days like these,

Nobody told me there'd be days like these,

Nobody told me there'd be days like these,

Strange days indeed,

Strange days indeed.

Everybody's runnin' and no one makes a move.

Everyone's a winner and no one seems to lose.

There's a little yellow idol to the north of Katmandu.

Everybody's flying and no one leaves the ground.

Everybody's crying and no one makes a sound.

There's a place for us in movies you just gotta stay around.

Nobody told me there'd be days like these,

Nobody told me there'd be days like these,

Nobody told me there'd be days like these,

Strange days indeed. Most peculiarMama.

Everybody's smoking and no one's getting high.

Everybody's flying and never touch the sky.

There's UFOs over New York and I ain't too surprised.

Nobody told me there'd be days like these,

Nobody told me there'd be days like these,

Nobody told me there'd be days like these,

Strange days indeed.

Most peculiar Mama.
The photo? I tweaked a picture from my Chicago collection. It's some cool cloudage that I tweakedin Photoshop to reflect the swirl (shift?) of reality from brick and mortar (all those gorgeous art deco buildings) to virtual.
