I've been wondering why the "fade out" in 80's music was so popular. I suppose the singer/songwriter was just stumped when it came to actually ending the song. Maybe they assumed that no one would notice if the song just started sneaking away until finally it had disappeared altogether. I for one, had completely forgotten about this trend until I was haunted by an old tape my son pulled out of a dusty corner in the back of his drawer. As the song faded to an inaudible conclusion my son asked, "What's wrong with him? What's happening to the song?"
It's hard to resist the urge to press your ear against the speaker just to see how long the singer actually keeps going on with the repetition.
As for other things, I am working on creating a body butter. It will be sort of a whipped, luxurious moisturizer that is created by only using all natural oils and no additives. I have finally decided that my skin has had enough. Even as I LOVE my all natural soap and the amazing benefits it brings to my skin, I just can't seem to withstand the elements and my poor epidermis is crying out for help. Still, as I reach for my bottle of nondescript lotion I can't help reading the ingredients and balking a little bit at the fact that the manufacturers seemed to have an overabundance of alcohol that they just needed to use up somehow. Alcohol is a drying agent so it is always hard to comprehend how something that is supposed to bring moisture and relief is so full of something that actually takes that away. There is definitely the issue of preservation and I am pretty sure that is why they use so much but even as their bases are covered when it comes to bacteria my skin is not and is still left dry and needy. So, on to whipped body butter and a new way to moisturize! (coming soon....)
