Chain, Chain, Chain

Well, now I've gone and done it. Aretha Franklin will probably be in my head all day now.
"Chain, Chain, Chain..." 
That's it. I've given myself, what scientists call an 'earworm'. A song that gets stuck in your head all day is usually a song that is rhythmically and lyrically quite simple. Scientists also state that we must be 'ready' if a song is to stay with us. Are you stressed out? Do you have a good memory? What kind of mood are you in? Here's a great one. Are you bored? Well, if you fall into any of these categories this morning, look out. You just might be humming, toe-tapping and singing, poorly I might add, your way around the day.
But no fear. The Super Hero: Technology is on the way to the rescue. There is a app coming soon to a smart phone near you.
Trigger it, and you're on your way to a stupid-song-free day. What it'll do, I have no idea.
So get ready... "Call Me Maybe", "Last Train to Clarksville"...

Till then, for me, it'll be, "Chain, chain, chain... For five long years, I though you were my man..."


  1. Beautiful post and amazing pics.
    Hope to see more of your lovely images.


  2. I like so much this picture with the combination of stone and the chain!Well done!

  3. Some days I think Elenka ought to chain you up!

  4. Thanks for sharing Birdman.. Chain, chain, chain :))

  5. Love that song! Nice texture in this shot.

  6. Thanks for passing on this affliction. chain, chain, chain.....yikes.

  7. Those rocks will never get away being chained down like that, but it looks like the rocks can just out-wait the chain. Then they will be free to be rolling stones. Earworms are not my problem. Can never remember the words to songs anyway.

  8. the rocks and the rusted chain - another evocative combo - what does it all mean? and thanks for the earworm for today . . .

  9. p. s. Met Sketchbook Wandering yesterday! Now we have to add you and E and b-boro folks to the mix . . .

  10. Yes, Come on Up to Midcoast or we'll come down!! My worst ear pest ever was I'm a Little Teapot...You crack me up, by the way....

  11. This is strange, but they may remind me of breakfast cereal. I need help.

  12. Yup, this happens often. The most recent one was Jack and Diane.

  13. ah the texture here - i can almost hear the clanks

  14. "chain, chain, chain" would be a welcomed song to have stuck in my head. my present earworms? "the wheels on the bus go round and round", "the itsy bitsy spider" and "if you're happy and you know it..." my son's favorite songs haunt me while i sleep.

  15. Many times I wake up with a song playing in my head. That in itself is okay I guess. My problem is I never know all the words and am stuck with a handful of lyrics on a closed loop going all day long. Just what I need, more mental static...

  16. And now you've given the ear-worm to me....Dawoop.

  17. Piece of writing writing is also a fun, if you be familiar
    with after that you can write otherwise it is difficult to write.

  18. Collectively all the 3 markets account for
    68% waste water treatment systems use. Recently, I read an article in Scientific American by
    Adam Hadhazy. Concrete design- basic working stress and limit state design concepts,
    analysis of ultimate load capacity and design of members subjected to flexure,
    shear, compression and torsion by limit state methods.
