IN HIGH SCHOOL SPEECH CLASS, WE WERE TASKED WITH A DEMONSTRATIVE SPEECH SO OF COURSE, I CHOSE TO DEMONSTRATE THE MANY USES OF SPOONS….IV’E BEEN THIS WEIRD FOR AWHILE…AMONG THE WAYS THEY ARE USEFUL INCLUDE EATING, HICKEY HEALING, BALANCING ON YOUR NOSE, AND 2 SPOONS CAN BE USED AS A MUSICAL PERCUSSION INSTRUMENT…ALA THE DRUMMER JOHN MERIKOWSKI OF WAY DOWN WANDERERS…BUT I DIGRESS…FLASH FORWARD TO 1992 AND THE MOVIE SINGLES…THAT’S WHERE I FIRST HEARD TODAY’S ROXY’S RETRO, “SPOONMAN”, THE SONG THAT LAUNCHED THE GRUNGE SUPERSTARS, SOUNDGARDEN, INTO THE MAINSTREAM WHEN IT WAS OFFICIALLY RELEASED ON THEIR ALBUM ‘SUPERUNKNOWN’ IN 94…WRITTEN IN PART ABOUT ARTIS THE SPOONMAN, A LEGENDARY SEATTLE STREET PERFORMER…HE EVEN PLAYS ON THE SONG AND IS FEATURED IN THE VIDEO…THE SONG REMINDS ME THAT WE ARE ALL UNIQUE, QUIRKY EVEN AND WE NEED TO ACCEPT AND RESPECT OUR DIFFERENCES AND COEXIST…MUSIC UNITES! ~ROXY
