Hard Rock & American Pop

^^just a selfie in an 800yo mirror. no biggie. actually that's kinda big.

We were in Florence and we still ate at Hard Rock Cafe. We also climbed the Duomo di Firenze, 463 steps to a gorgeous view of Florence. At one point we had to walk around a tiny platform connected only to the wall, a couple hundred of feet above the floor, to the other side of the dome to continue to the top. Only thoughts? I have no idea how anyone was okay with getting up even higher than that to paint all those Italian ceilings. Florence is definitely a lot louder than lovely Venice, because they actually have cars.

For some reason everyone plays american pop music in Italy, everywhere. They don't even speak our language. It makes no sense to me.


I find bands fascinating. I feel like songwriters are sharing their souls with people, and that a group of people can connect so deeply that their music has the same sound, the same feel, is amazing. Everyone's lyrics are different, but you can find people who's soul is so similar to yours, you can join together and make great music. That must be the key to successful bands, their souls are similar, and they are so good at sharing their souls that other people connect, too.
