Hibbings hold ‘em.

I had a dream last night, the main topic about which isn’t currently appropriate discussion, albeit due to current circumstances, it’s come along several times now.

Regardless, in the dream, I was playing poker with JAS and a few other people whose names/faces escape me. We weren’t playing for cash, however. There was a random stash of good, quality CDs and CD singles over on a shelf, and everyone was allowed to grab a handful or two… and instead of betting bucks, you bet your album tracks, which each had an appropriate intrinsic, and often equivalent value.

Now, of course such a system would only work if people shared the same intrinsic value of these songs, and there was indeed a bit of differing of opinions. Dialogue went something like this.

Well, I’ll see your “Uncle John’s Band”, matching it with my “Corrina, Corrina”, and I’ll raise you “A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall”.

“Corrina, Corrina”? What kind of match is that?

Well, I mean, I know it’s no “Like a Rolling Stone”, but it’s still good…

This of course was probably brought on by seeing the 60 Minutes interview with Dylan last night, and reading RS‘s Top 500 Songs article last night. Regardless, it was a pretty interesting concept. There were other bits to the dream in the game which escape me now.
